Camp Creek State Park RV & Campground Guide

West Virginia

For a stream that runs a short distance, Camp Creek delivers a big punch. It lends its name to the Camp Creek community, the 5,300-acre Camp Creek State Forest, and the 550-acre Camp Creek State Park. Carved from the Camp Creek State Forest in 1987, the acreage for the state park results from state legislation to set aside an area for visitors to camp, stay, and enjoy West Virginia’s southwestern terrain and forests. With its completion, Camp Creek State Park became an instant draw as visitors to the area discovered the magnificent beauty of the area and the creek's unsullied waters. Travelers from distant large urban areas like Richmond, VA, and Charleston, WV, seek the park as a place to enjoy a few days away from the hubbub of their working life.
