Moving a bit further away from Camden Park, there are more options for campgrounds. One of which is the Beckley Exhibition Mine Campground. This unique park is right next door to a historic underground coal mine, where guests can explore history in an exciting way. Scenic, full hookup sites are among the perks of this park.
With a two hour drive, you may not be heading to Camden Park every day of your vacation, but it’s certainly worth the drive for a day or two of fun. But for as little as $25 a night, it’s worth the extra distance for those who are looking to keep a tight budget. Plus, you certainly won’t be bored on the days that you don’t head to Camden Park – during your stay at these campsites, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the coal camp, enjoy guided tours of the underground mine, and interact at hands-on exhibits.
“We were able to call and get a reservation on our way home, and truly just needed a campsite for about 10 hours. The owner was extremely friendly and helped us get into our spot when we arrived after dark. The bathhouses were very clean, and you are given a code to type in to gain entry…We would stay here again!” – Carolina, Tripadvisor
