First FULL week of August, Monday the 8th through Sunday the 14th. One price for the full week or any portion thereof. I don't know what that price will be yet. I've stayed a number of times at this campground - Riverchase Lodge and Campground in Meadow Creek, WV. It's neat, well maintained, hot showers, clean restrooms, plenty of flat space for tents either in shade or in the open. There are active train tracks near (as most any paddler would expect anyway). It is on the banks of the New River with river access for those staying at the campground. Tents only, no dogs. Pop-ups count as tents.
The price is usually too expensive for those who want to stay one night, about average for those who stay two nights, and an increasingly better bargain for those who stay three through six nights.
I usually arrive on Thursday and stay through Sunday.
If you plan to come and camp, contact me with your interest. Replying here counts as contact. If you plan to come but want to use one of the cabins on-site, contact Diane Law the owner. There are about eight or ten folks in so far from another site where I post. Most of them are guitar pickers, so there'll be lots of good campfire music, plus whatever you call what I play.
The paddling is pretty and can be as challenging (New River Gorge and Gauley are within driving distance) or as mild and easy-going (Bluestone Lake is also within driving distance) as you like. The fishing is so-so. The music is great. The company is fantastic.
