Longfork is a gay campground for men, no matter what else you see on the internet. They used to have a mixed crowd, but the women were mostly no-shows, and scared off the guys. I guess they also do special events for mixed crowds and are open to the idea if someone wanted to organize it, but luckilly it was a regular weekend when I went. I really loved this place and the owners are great, you really feel like they are opening their home and their woodland to you. It is not a big flat lawn with a bunch of tents, or a mobile home park with a bunch of naked old dudes, it has a little of everything. It was actually really tame, and well-run, a testament to its owner. They have a bunk house, KOA style cabins, and RV spaces, but I went to camp so I got one of the tent sites but splurged on having electricity (to charge my cell phone ... which didn't end up having service out there...damn Verizon...it's AT&T territory). I went alone (hence why I decided on a gay campground...because lets face it, gay guys are nice and would tell someone if a crazy guy decided to off you in the forrest), and took my two dogs. It is not only completely single friendly (every camper indroduced themselves to me, and even fed me...talk about friendly), but it is very dog friendly (they live by the rule that you have dog privileges until you prove you don't deserve them...hence why I put my jack russells on their leashes b/c they couldn't play nice with the bigger dogs). Some very cool pluses: (1) the place is big enough that on weekends where there is not a main event you can pick a remote site or hike in the woods and feel like you are all alone in the forest, (2) they have an awesome pool & jacuzzi (clean!) with a little BYOB bar area for hanging out, (3) they have a full breakfast on Sundays and often the campers make dinner on other nights, and (4) the little town of Walton is right down the road with a general store straight out of the movies where you can get everyhing from chicken feed to electronics, but most importantly home cookin grub that is smack your mamma good. The only downsides are that: (1) it is far away (I drove from DC, and it took over 5 hours), (2) you have to drive past some WV yards that give visions of Deliverance, but once at the campground all is good, and (3) the showers need a little work, but they were clean and there were plenty available. Probably the nicest campground I've been to, and gay to boot!
