I am sorry to say that West Virginia is not very hospitable to RV's on the Interstate. Your best option is Jim's Camping at Milton but that may be too close as it is only just over the border from Ohio. This does have pull-thrus which most don't. As you noticed most other campgrounds are way off the highway. Greenbrier Mountainaire campground at Caldwell has some pull-thrus also but only 20amp electric and is not highly rated, but if you are desperate! If you can make it as far as Staunton VA, Walnut Hills is a nice campground.

There is a world class, complete campground behind the Hotel at Sutton, in the center of the state. A gorgeous, full service CG !

Art,
The campground you mention is Flatwoods KOA. This is on I-79 NOT I-64 which is where Rudolph is looking.
Another option on I-64 is the Tamarack Center at Beckley. I have not stopped overnight there but people have reported that it is a good stop. You can park way from the trucks but it is not a campground.

Hey Al !

Silver River State Park is a state of the art campground. Top quality.

Juniper Springs and Salt Springs are both very nice. Where did you spend you time here?

Hi All,

Hey Art,

Last winter I was at Ocala Ranch which is now Ocala Sun for 1 1/2 months, and then I moved up to Wilderness RV Park in Silver Springs for 1 month. This winter I plan on being at Wilderness from sometime end of Nov till May 1. Also looking forward to another nice concert series at Silver Springs and some more rides on the glass bottom boats !!

Rudolph:

When we've traveled in that area, we have stopped overnight at the nice Walmart on I-64 in Huntington area (I believe it is actually Barboursville). Also, the Tamarack travel center on I-77 is an option. There is ample place to park for an overnight stay.

When in Williamsburg, I can highly recommend American Heritage RV park.

Rudolph,
We spend summers in WV and absolutely love it, but, Algoma is correct that there are really precious few, if any, campsites available close to I-64, at least not for 40ft coaches with toad. There are some nice state parks that are not too far off, but you would have to get there well before dark and, other than one pull thru site at Camp Creek, would be back-ins.

I would suggest boondocking at Walmart or Lowe's (across from each other) at Cross Lanes (just NW of Charleston) or at Tamarack, at Beckley exit 45. See http://www.wvdot.com/7_tourists/wvturnpike/7f3e_tamarack.htm[/url] There are RV spaces up on the hill (follow RV signs) if you want to be away from the trucks. Tamarack closes at 8 or 9pm, but does allow overnight parking.

Hope this helps.
