From waterfall explorations, creek adventures, and fishing to kayaking, tubing, and hiking, there's something for everyone.

Our camp provides spring water spigots for general use, an office cabin with electric charging access, and clean porta-potties. Wi-Fi is available near the office cabin (password: campground19).

Beaver Lakes Campground LLC.

50 sites · RVs, Tents250 acres · Calvin, WV
Property was owned by my great grandfather , He lost 150 acres in the early 1900's due to a bad debt from neighboring landowner. Was so happy to be able to repurchase the 150 acres back in 2016,now own the original land tract and added more. 250 acres in total. Portions were strip mined around 1978-1982 creating some flat fields and access to all property. I might add that strip mining if done properly can and does enhance the property. Ponds were built to catch runoff and several new animal species moved in waterfowl ,muskrats, and beavers. The beavers have constructed large dams on property further adding to the beauty. Have seen several bald eagles on and around the property.

Coon Creek Cove

3 sites · RVs, Tents80 acres · Gassaway, WV
Our property once had a vibrant back woods community. During the Civil War a Union garrison was up the creek and traveled through here to the river. In the 1800's the Brady Family Farmed here. There was a Church that has long since burned down. This place is great for metal detecting! We moved here in 2018, there was nothing else but a open well, fields and woods. We live in a trailer and are building a farm. There's chickens and pigs, that you can meet! Learn more about this land: We are a small, mostly off grid homestead farm with chickens, ducks, pigs, and bunnies, located 1.25 miles off the paved road, over 2 miles from the nearest residence. Our hideaway farm is 80 acres centered on the convergence of two babbling creeks, in a valley between three mountains. We are happy to teach you about our homestead lifestyle or set your campsite and just relax. We practice permaculture and follow organic farming practices. Our Main Circle is where our bonfires, cabana, and home trailer is. You are welcome to camp at the Main Circle where we have electricity or you can camp elsewhere.  We own the bike shop "Bigfoot Braxxie's Bikes" in Gassaway, WV. If you are a cyclist and want to explore the back roads or dirt mountain trails ask us! Our shop sells, rents, and repairs bicycles. We also have accessories, used bikes, and parts. We specialize in electric Ebikes so visit our shop and take out a bike while you are here! See Extras for bike rentals. We've adjusted our hours for check in to 5pm because we staff the bike shop ourselves. If you want to check in earlier you can meet us at the bike shop or we can make special arrangements for you, just ask! Please do NOT bring firewood from out of the area. This is one way invasive insects get transported. There are NO Ash Trees because of the bore beetle. We offer firewood, and there are plenty of places close to get FREE firewood, just ask. Campers are encouraged to camp at Kolb Field along Coon Creek, under a great-grandfather walnut tree or hike the mountain and set camp secluded away from everyone. We have a public dirt road that is seldom traveled through the property, we do suggest having an SUV or 4x4 when coming but, regular cars can get here and we can help you get to your site in our pick up truck. RVs and non-4x4 cars can only get to the camp area during dryer times of the year, please ask if you have a RV. If you have a car that can't get to Kolb Field because of high water, we do have other areas you can camp at. Our farm is a great destination for overland camping and getting your pick up truck a little dirty!  Because we are mostly off grid we do ask that what you pack in please pack out, take your trash with you. Be sure you bring your own mess kit and cup. We prefer that you use aluminum cans for your beverages so we can recycle them for you, we can not recycle plastic or glass. Plus we like to be sure there not broken bottles left behind so we can be bare foot! We are very dog friendly. You are welcome with your dog. Let us know if you want to play with our happy dogs, and want to have them around your camp! Please only bring your dogs if they are both dog and other animal friendly. If there is ANY CONCERN your dog will not get along with our dogs please ask us for a recomendation for some place other to stay. Our dogs patrol our farm to keep our animals safe! And our animals, particularly our chickens and ducks, free roam during the day, some may make it close to your camping area, depending on where you choose. We ask that you keep your dogs tied or maintain control of your dog. Our three dogs are free roaming, they keep predators away and may lead your dog off too far. If you do let your dog off the lead we are not responsible if they get lost. That being said, our dogs love to play with guests and we are always happy to let you and your dogs interact with them! Please don't feed our dogs or other animals unless you ask us first, thanks! We LOVE to Bar-B- Que! We offer on weekends and holidays to join us for BBQ dinner at the Main Circle for a small cost per plate, buffet style. We will be creating a Farm to Fork open air restaurant in the near future.  Everything, as much as possible, is homemade from scratch (and quite delicious if you ask anyone). Our own BBQ rubs, sauce, we cut wood from our forest for our smoking wood chips, we even grow our own pigs and chickens! Be sure to book the Extra 'Time with the Animals' to see how we grow our own. Holidays are some of the best times to visit if you like to socialize around a camp fire with a beer and good eats.

The best camping near Holly River State Park guide

Overview

About

You don’t hear much about Holly River State Park, because most of their regular visitors don’t want to let the cat out of the bag. One of West Virginia’s best-kept secrets, this densely wooded park takes you far away from city life, onto 8100 acres of narrow valley nestled between peaks that climb as high as 2800 feet! Cell service is almost non-existent, but the office has wi-fi, as does the full-service restaurant, great for when you get tired of hot dogs.

Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa Falls, Shupe’s Chute, and Potato Knob all serve as great destinations for hikers and photographers alike—the steep climb to the Knob is a great workout that pays out in breathtaking views from 2480 feet. Wooded pathways and decks weave around the falls, and log cabins with stone fireplaces are peppered throughout the grounds. Park staff lead hayrides and marshmallow roasts, and even put on a haunted campground in October! Visit in the fall for Irish road bowling contests, or Labor Day weekend for live music, potato peeling contests, and tons more at the Holly River Fest.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Holly River State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural world is in full bloom or awash with autumnal colors. Summer brings warmth perfect for water activities, though it can be crowded. Winters are quiet but can be chilly, so pack accordingly.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's website for any alerts on trail closures or weather advisories before your visit.
  • Wear appropriate footwear and clothing for hiking and exploring the diverse terrain.
  • Remember to pack out all trash and leave the park as pristine as you found it.
  • Cell service may be limited, so plan your route and communicate with your group in advance.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring extra supplies.
