Rippling Waters, off I-77, about an hour or so south of the Ohio border.

Good luck.

Canaan Valley is a great state park. Big sites, full hookups and only $10/night!
I believe all of the state parks have some hookups, leveled sites and are often full all summer. So plan ahead or call for site availability.

We liked Revelle's River Resort just outside of Elkins. Easy access off the 33 highway in a beautiful valley. Lots to do with the trains down that way. They've got stables & you can float down the stream on tubes. From the looks of the website, they've added a pool since we were there last. They recently changed to a Jellystone Park; we haven't been there since it changed. http://www.jellystonewestvirginia.com/index.html

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I'm sure you'll enjoy your visit in West Virginia. Six years ago we visited around 25 of the State Parks and like many states the parks a great. One of the areas of your visit should include Harpers Ferry.

I'd second the Canaan Valley recommendation, especially if you're already in northrn VA. Lots of hiking opportunities around the area. Recommend Dolly Sods, Spruce Knob. Also lots of trout fishing in the area.

We'll be camping at Senecca Rocks in about 2 weeks. Plans are to visit the Cass Railroad, Spruce Knob, Blackwater Falls SP, and possibly stop by Canaan Valley.

Welcome to West Virginia! I agree with all the sites recommended above; also Blackwater Falls (just 10 mi. from Canaan Valley), and if you like to camp by a lake, try Bulltown Campground on Burnsville lake -- run by the Corp of Engineers. Another great state park is Pipestem in the southern part of the state
