We spent time at the campground beach and rented kayaks one of the days for 5 an hour. Will be back for... More

There is a section by the dam that offers some beautiful rock outcrops. Be careful there. There is also a public hunting area there so be aware... More

I was impressed with the amenities at the park. The view was gorgeous and there was plenty of grills. The casino was nice and not smokey. We rented a canoe and the prices were reasonable. The lake is huge and it was nice to explore. Just be careful on what address you type into the gps. It took us to... More

We had a nice hike around the lake. Never knew this was here and glad we found it. Stayed at the Casino which was also very nice. Hotel staff were great especially Mary at the front desk.

Wooded sights, spaced far enough apart. Campers have their own beach complete with a lifeguard and camp store. This is a really great place to camp and not very crowded on weekdays. I hear weekends it tends to fill up.

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
