Reviews for West Virginia State Fairgrounds

| Nice place to stay, clueless staff

This is a very large campground with several areas. We were told to set up in a small fenced-in area right next to the main road - I mean RIGHT next to it - adjacent to the main parking area and directly across the street from the main event area. As we were setting up, a very nice fellow RVer drove from his site in another section to tell us there were about 75 full-hookup 50 amp sites several hundred yards from where we were. In addition, he said there was a concert scheduled for that night which would mean a lot of noise, parking immediately behind our rig, and - as it turned out - a lot of alcohol consumed with the resulting behavior. We pulled the landing gear back up and moved up to the nice grassy area away from everything and set up with the other two rigs that were there (remember - around 75 sites in that area). Problem number 2: we needed to have our mail forwarded to us which included some medications. I verified the address to have it sent to with the fairground "campground manager" and called Escapees Mail Service. Today, USPS tracking said the packet was delivered back to Escapees Mail Service in Livingston, TX. I called the fairgrounds office and got a completely different story than what I was told the first time (there's not even a place for USPS to deliver mail at the address I was given. As a result, it looks like I'll run out of an important medication before we can intercept our mail at another location down the road. It's still a nice place to stay to see the area. Since we've gained the knowledge to avoid some pitfalls here, we would probably stay here again if we're ever back in the area. We just know now not to trust that the staff know what they're doing.

We mostly had the place (all 700+ sites) to ourselves even though they hosted a Jeep Jamboree this weekend. I expect this place is much busier during their state fair in August.

| Open Fairground Site right on main Street.

Full hook ups a plus, limited trees mainly open land off main road next to Fairgrounds. 50amp and 30amps.

Had reservations for two nights in the South Lot site 006. Arrived and pulled in and tried to find site 006 but nothing was numbered, the street was full of mud holes with standing water. Called the office and was told to just pick any site we wanted. All hooks at back of site and grouped so you have to have long water hose and power cord depending on how your site is located. All sites are grass and some have fairly soft soil which is not good for a 32,000 pound motorhome but we found one site with a gravel bed that we chose even though it was only about 100 off a busy street. Will not be staying for our second night.
