We stopped here during a long road trip to get a new break. We loved our short visit to Rocky Gap and will definitely be back the next time we pass through. You can't beat it - it's right off the highway with very modern and clean facilities. And the lake! The lake settings is beautiful. Two nice, big sandy... More

We went here to hike the lake trail and also an overlook with a great view of the valley below. There is a great lake for swimming and lots of campsites. This is a great place to take a family for an inexpensive vacation.

I can not say enough wonderful things about this park! Beautiful lake with great fishing (live bait sold at pro-shop) and they also have paddle boat and canoe rentals. The campground is very large and in a great "woodsy" setting with plenty of shade and privacy! Trails are great for mountain biking and hiking, the lakeside loop trail will take... More

Stayed in the 4man camper cabin this past weekend. Great for the wife in kids that aren't into tent camping. Cabin was comfortable and clean. It had lights and outlets. We brought a fan which was great to keep it ventilated and comfortable. We stayed in the Dogwood loop which was pet friendly and close to the beach. We were... More

The cabins were nice, except for the fact that there were some holes in the screens, the front screen door was a little bent and didn't close properly. We also saw a little critter run out of the cabin. The bathrooms were nearby and could've been cleaned a little better but other than that the park is very nice. We... More

We wanted a short hike to see the overlook. First we went to the paid entrance ($4/person for a day swimming at the lake with beach) and he said we should go down the free road past the casino and there was parking for the overlook and nature trails. It was a short nice slightly upward walk to a rocky... More

The lake is beautiful and lots of wooded campsites. They have a great picnic area and beaches. Very clean. Small aviary and boat launches. Friendly people.

Each year we camp with our neighbors and this was our first time here at Rocky Gap. It's a beautiful and serene place to camp near the lake. We were with 6 families of adults, teenagers, children and college kids. We all had fun. We all brought our furry friends and it was a very dog friendly site! There's lots... More

Great place to camp. generally well maintained and quiet. boating, fishing, and hiking are good. There is a camp store which is very convenient. During holidays, it does get a little crowded and noisy.
