OK, even though I don't camp, and several people have asked about them, I found a few campgrounds near Parkersburg, WV

My search results:
https://www.startpage.com/do/search?cat ... g+WV&pl=ff

A couple of links from the search:
http://www.camping-usa.com/campgrounds/ ... rkersburg/

Enjoy!

How many people would be interested in camping? Javier's has web site on mount wood site looks like it be a good one 10 to 15 minutes from motel. Would be nice all stayed in the same park. Most times two on the same site for the price of one like $10 to $15.00 A pice.

Just made reservations for the 12th-16th. I will be coming from Lyman SC near Spartanburg. Plan on leaving around 5 am. If anyone is traveling that day and would like to ride together let me know. Looking forward to the rides.

I have this posted in the hotel info thread but thought I would add it to this thread also so no matter what thread you follow this info will be on it.

"If anyone is interested, I have put multiple routes for this ride in gpx format. I have all the Ohio Windy Nine routes and 3 routes in WV that start at Mineral Wells. If you have navigation that will import in that format and would like to have my collection, PM me with your Email and I will share what I have with you. I have printed directions for 2 of the WV rides that I will copy and bring with me. Looking forward to seeing old friends and new ones as well."
