Brooklyn Heights Riverfront Campground includes 35 acres of unlogged wilderness forest with roads, trails and 2100 feet of riverfront on the Dry Fork River. Grand Opening was July 4th weekend, 2022 and the camp is now open seasonally form mid-April through mid-November annually. The new camp includes 15 camping sites (firepits, slabwood benches, parking, and future picnic tables), 5 primitive shelter cabin sites (10x`12 lofted barn cabins with hasp for your padlock), and a 10 short term RV sites along the river (RV's 30 foot or less recommended)... each with firepits and slabwood benches. 4 RV sites have full electric and water hook-ups, the other 6 boon-docking for 2023. The camp is situated on nearly 4 miles of wilderness riverfront on a dead end stunning road, and yet just a few miles to the beautiful town of Parsons WV in Tucker County (home of Thomas / Davis / and Canaan Valley). The Dry Fork and Black Fork Rivers combine nearby, the cable suspension bridge to Hendricks is less than half a mile downstream, the Fernow Experimental Forest is just a mile downstream, and the Monongahela national forest and huge unlogged forests are all around! Waterfalls, creeks, kayak drop points, swimming, tubing, hiking, fishing, and water recreation abounds. The camp does have water spigots for general use (spring water source, not chlorinated or treated), an office cabin and electric charging access area near the office. Porta-potties in 2023 (cleaned weekly) and the beautiful town of Parsons is just 4 miles away with all conveniences, shopping and eateries. Book online only, self check in, designated parking spots for each campsite.

Great location near the river. Perfect level of amenities (fire rings, benches, port-a-pot) while still experiencing nature. Vincent was super helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.

Camping oasis along the Cheat River
A beautiful campsite along the Cheat River. We stayed at campsite C1 which nicely accommodated our large 12-person tent. The parking spot at each campsite is very nice. Site was flat and campfire wood for purchase or forage was easily accessible. Vincent stopped by each day and was able to find (from another camper) an adapter for our air mattress. This site is right beside the portajohn which we didn't mind, but some might. Each evening we were serenaded by coyotes, which was amazing! Vincent is working on getting some electric to the site in the future which would be nice if needed... although we did have cell reception at campsite. If you venture out the town of Thomas, WV is amazing... filled with artists and a beautifully restored main street. Will be back!

Nice little camp. As long as you know it’s Primitive it’s great. He said there are more improvements coming soon like electric. It Was neat and clean, there was fire wood available for purchase if needed. I would stay again and recommend it to friends. I’ll be back in the future. Thanks

Vincent sent thorough instructions and was kind enough to allow me to switch sites once I got there. I was sleeping in my car and the B sites were not as good for that. C5 worked well.

Beautiful location. Cabins are very simply, but an easy place to stay if you want to camp but not set up a tent! 😄

A weekend getaway
Really nice little campground. Everyone was friendly and respectful. A really nice place to experience the fall foliage. The section B does not get a lot of sun so it gets pretty cold and damp. The spot for parking your car is very small as well. This section is quite private though.

Beautiful and quiet campsite!
I loved how quiet the campground was. The only noise you could hear was the river right next to the campsite. The whole area was absolutely breathtaking. I will definitely be back.

Incredible location ! Excellent, well tended grounds (porta potty was SPOTLESS)....excellent communication from the host. Sites are gravel- and the tent sites are nice (def bring a heavier pad for the forest floor).... in a valley- so gets dark a bit earlier than Sundown....

Campground is adjacent to a paved road that follows the river - upstream is a beautiful bicycle ride and a short upstream ride is one of the two local suspension bridges. The host stopped by and drew us a little map showing how we can hike to the second suspension bridge (whovh involes crossing the river). We plan to do the hike on our next trip.

Great site just steps away from the picturesque Dry Fork River. We had plenty of privacy on a beautiful Friday Fall night.

It was a beautiful location right on the Dry Fork River. Great paved road for walking or biking along the river. Our dog loved running ahead and back-I think we saw 1 other person. Vince was easily reached and very accommodating. He lives close, so had great recommendations for hiking and eating. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and will definitely go back.

Magical riverside stay
I arrived to the campsite on a weekend where there were only two other campers. The host upgraded me to a cabin, which was generous! The campsites are next to a gorgeous river in a nature preserve, so there was plenty to see. I enjoyed the unique green rocks in the river. After staying 3 extra nights, I can say the place felt safe and private, especially for the solo traveller.

Beautiful, peaceful area by the river. Trails around the campsite are easy to walk. Brand new campsite so it has a lot of potential and Vincent seems to have a good vision of what he wants to do with the camp. Definitely would recommend!

This was one of my favorite Hipcamps ever! Close to the Cheat River. Campsites were neat and well kept. Toilet is available. Very quiet. I'm ready to go back now!

Lots of potential
This was a nice, newer campground that has great potential. I thought the sites were nice, the area was very clean, cleanest port-o-potties I have ever seen. My main issue was parking in section B. The area was tiny and somewhat sketchy. I also think it would be nice to have a dumpster available to dispose of trash. Had we stayed more than two nights, we could have had a lot more trash and to haul it out would not have been fun. I think the space for the tents was large enough, a little unlevel and could use a little more clearing. However, in time that will get worn down. Overall-nice place to spend a night to two.

Great swimming, amazing campsite!!
This campsite was wonderful!! The river is beautiful and great for swimming. Vincent is an amazing kind host and very friendly. The campsite itself is beautiful, and the nearest town is easily accessible if needed. Beautiful hikes are just a short drive away, but it’s just as fun to hang out at camp and swim in the river. Couldn’t recommend enough.

Brooklyn Heights was a wonderful weekend get away - you can't beat the bike riding and river!!! Vince is so gracious, he's really putting his heart into this new site! Although it's starting out a little primative, he's got great vision. The RV site was great! The neighboring towns of Parsons, Thomas and Davis are great day trips! We look forward to visiting again.

We enjoyed our stay in section B. Even though we were not far from the other campsites it felt like we were deeper in the wilderness which is what we were looking for. The campsite is in a great location and the river is beautiful. Vincent was attentive and friendly.

Quiet and beautiful stay!
I just had a one night stay while I passed through town but this was great! Fairly easy to find with the written instructions but my Apple Maps on Verizon network also worked to get me there. Plenty of wood around to collect and burn but also some bundles available for purchase were a nice offer! The location next to the river was very pretty and peaceful. Town was close enough I went to grab some dinner.

This campsite area was such a perfect find for us! Very scenic and secluded while still being just a short drive away to a Walgreens, grocery store, ect. We brought our two dogs and set up a tent at our site. There was a good amount of other campers there and everyone was quiet and respectful. Port o potty’s, river rafts, and wood bundles for purchase were an extra bonus too! Vincent also sent some great detailed driving instructions and a map layout. We’ll definitely be back

Tucked Away Corner of Tucker County
The road getting there is narrow and winding (especially for an RV) but once you arrive, you’ll be so glad you did. Tucked along the beautiful Dry Fork River on the way to Otter Creek Wilderness with the Allegheny Highlands Trail just across the swinging bridge, this is an outdoor lover’s paradise. It’s tucked away and feels remote, yet charming Parsons with its restaurants and grocery stores is only four miles away. The brand new campground is primitive now, but host/owner Vince says running water and electricity are on the way. We will be back with or without the modern upgrades:)

Best place for a quiet get away
Great location with lots of access points to enjoy the beautiful river. This was my second trip there since the place opened a couple months ago and I can’t wait to get back. Even though there were more campers this time with its growing popularity, you still have the feeling of privacy and serene isolation tucked in the wooded areas of the camp grounds. Vince is a great host and a super friendly guy, who has clearly put a lot of work into this place, and goes out of his way to make sure campers are enjoying their stay. There are so many nearby attractions and parks, but this place is a destination all its own.

We had a great stay at Vince’s campground! Vince is a wonderful host - very communicative before and during the stay, and happy to show you all around the campsite. It is a rustic campsite in the woods with plenty of space between each site. The campsite is located right on the river with a large swimming hole that was wonderful to swim and explore. We hope to return the next time we are in the area!

We had a little Dotson with us and
The spot was excellent and the beach and swinging bridge was excellent enjoyed the one on one talks when Vincent checked on us and told us about the tour of the grounds. One thing he needs to invest in is a garbage destination it would be helpful not to have to take all the way home even though we didn't have much anyway. I really loved that there wasn't as many campers at a time. But it looked like the word was getting out though. I took walks in the morning and the evening. It is located near a park for kids as well in Parsons right before you turn down the road. I will definitely go back to this campground again.
