I have young children who can't/won't do tough hikes, so I always appreciate places where I can readily see a beautiful view without having to drag the reluctant kids up a mountain trail. This place is very pretty and just a walk along the lake shore is all that is needed to get many different views of water framed by... More

We just returned from a wonderful 5 day stay at Rocky Gap. Our cabin on the Gap loop was clean and comfortable and, most importantly, kept us snug and dry during two rainstorms. My husband & I thought the double bed mattress was pretty thin, so we bought extra padding. The kids' bunk bed was actually more comfortable than ours.... More

Camped here last fall and absolutely loved it. Quiet, nice campsite, close to a good restroom, and very close to town.

Very convenient combination of golf, scenic waterfront, and casino! Buffet was a good value and view at Lakefront was very nice.

We have hiked & swam here. Enjoyed both. Really do wonder how clean the water is though, rather concerning. Have ate at rest. up near the hotel here also. The food was just normal with high prices. Wished snack area near beach would have been open. Another poster said it was $6 per person, it is not. It is $6... More

The short trail around the lake was about 5.75 miles and my 10 and 7 y/o girls were able to make it..spray some insect repellent though, the campsite was great, we're close to the clean bathroom and water supply, kayaking and swimming in a cool water is fun but the lake is not good for fishing because there's a lot...

Our camp site was on the lake so our view was absolutely gorgeous. Campground was relatively quiet in Ironwood. Bathhouse was not in the best order. Campgrounds are patrolled regularly so security is not an issue.

I spent last weekend in Rocky Gap park July 17,18,19 in site A2. The park was a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy peaceful nature. I am very appreciative of the large camp sites and the space from the neighboring sites. I would love to come again and spend a week. The park is kept in first class condition, neat,... More

We enjoyed our weekend at Rocky Gap. The only part we didn't like is that we felt big brother was watching us. Almost every hour the DNR drove around our loop and one time we got a stare down from the driver while we were sitting and eating dinner. While I appreciate that they are driving around I think it...
