    The week after Easter is pretty quiet in WV; we had plenty of choices of sites. We chose #23.

    Date of visit: Apr 07

    There's a good mix of pull-through and back-in sites. There are essentially 3 camping loops: one with full hookups, one with electric only, and one with no hookups. Electric sites offer 30 and 50 amp outlets. Here are sites 24 - 26 with full hookups.

    Sites 42 - 40 are in the loop with electric-only hookups.

    Site 39 is a nice private one.

    Sites 33 - 36.

    Some of the nicest sites are in the no-hookups loop. This shows sites 78, 80, and 82 (L-R).

    These sites have lots of grass and a few shade trees. Here are sites 75 and 74.

    If you want to have a little family pickup softball game, site 58 would be a good choice with the large grass area behind it.

    There's only one bathhouse for all three loops. It provides clean and hot showers, and a small laundry room.

    If you'd rather not hoof it down the 3.5 mile River Trail to the Bluestone River in the valley's floor, there's an aerial tramway that will take you down. Or you can hike down and ride back up.

    McKeever Lodge offers accomodations and restaurant facilities. It's a full-service resort, with indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room, game room and gift shop.

    Quite the view from the lodge.

    The Bluestone Dining Room serves three meals a day, and offers a great view along with your meal. The lodge also has a snack bar.
