Sector A Campsites
The surrounding area is beautiful and the river access is great. The dark skies let you see everything at night. Be aware that camping sites are pretty close if you're looking for a secluded place. Porta pottie was very clean. All in all was an excellent experience.

Electric RV-site RV4
Exceeded our expectations.
We arrived Friday afternoon. 11/3/23. We camped at the RV3 sight. I have a 32’ Cougar with Crew Cab truck and we had no trouble getting in that sight. We were the only RV that weekend. First impression was “this is nice”. After setting up we took a walk along the river. Second impression was “this is beautiful !” The mountains are directly behind you and across the river. There is a beach type area on the river that has a hammock and some tables and chairs. Looks to be an awesome place for tubing and kayaking. Scenery is very serene. Although we did not use it, they have a canopy with table chairs and free water and coffee. Second day we walked in the other direction to the walking bridge, again the scenery is beautiful. Although we came in November, the weather was still nice. Campground was very clean. The communication with camp owner was over the top. Messaged you back immediately. He Sent info regarding how to get into campground with where to turn and where not to turn. All in all we had a great weekend!! Very relaxing. I would definitely come back again.

Great spot on the river
Brooklyn Heights Riverfront campground, just outside of Parsons WV is really a neat little campground set right next to national forest.
Vince, the owner, came to meet us minutes after we checked in, and made us feel comfortable. He was on site for out entire stay in case anything came up.
The place is fairly new, about a year and a half, and was done up nicely to accommodate 10 RV sites and at least 6 cabins, along with a bunch of tent spots. All the spots were clean, equipped with a fire ring, and easy to get in to. The weather wasn’t great, but still the area was abundant with things to do and places to go. Parsons itself is a quaint little big town with just enough to keep you busy for a day.
Cool place, great nearby hiking. Check out the hanging bridge!

Nice little place along the river! Lush trees surrounding. The town of Parsons is close by. Pick up a pizza from Mr Pizza on your way!
