SW Pennsylania - Maggie Valley RV Park at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

Just spent 8 days at the RV park which is part of Nemacolin resort, this included Labor Day weekend ... I also had some business to do in the area, so the location made sense.

This is a resort, with it's own RV park. Think of it as bringing your own hotel room to a 5 star resort. So, while the rates are close to $200 a night (including taxes and resort fees), you're at a resort where the all in room rate is probably around $500 a night. Some people stay at budget motels, others stay in 5 star hotels!

That being said, the concept is great but the execution isn't quite there. The overall resort is a little tired (except for the Falling Rock complex - which is quite new) ... for example, patched sidewalks where even the patching is breaking up, rusting metal structures and fittings, etc. The RV infrastructure is aging and needs some maintenance (cable and phone access, utility posts, sewer hook-ups, etc), concrete pads breaking up, very blah landscaping (it should be as attractive as their signature golf holes - but it's not). There's a shuttle bus on call to take you anywhere on the site, you get full access to all the facilities and restaurants. It is stuck between the parking garage for Falling Rock and the maintenance area and should have better and tidier access, but it's also out of the wind and the views in the RV area are OK. We think some of the employees stay at the RV park. There are only a few sites where you get a view of the SW sky for satellite reception.

Overall, yes it was expensive, but we had a great week at what's still a great resort.

The actual rate was $155, plus $9.30 tax, for weekdays and $165, plus $9.90 tax over the Labor Day weekend ... plus the $20 a day resort fee. Makes a total of $184.30 or $194.30 a day.

However, compare that to the going rate for staying in one of their rooms at a peak summer weekend ... you could easily run up $700 to 800 a night, or more. The point of my post was that I understand the concept behind the RV park, it is just a little tired and needs some TLC and better attention. We enjoyed the resort experience, figured we saved ourselves about $500 a night by staying in our coach!

I remember back a few years ago arriving at a Myrtle Beach Campground that was $69 a night plus a "bed tax"...It questioned that because I was bringing "the bed". Came out to $75 per night.

We have camped in that area at Laurel Hill State Park which is 3 miles from the 7-Springs Resort. Kind of the same thing as the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort but on a lower price point.
