  • Flatwoods WV KOA

    Pros: Clean, right off the interstate w/o any noise. Quiet, 4 different sections. Depending on the style of camping you want to do. Kids have the center area with a playground. Large Class A's have a section along with 50 amp campers.



    Cons: Only one section will get you a clear view of the southern sky and books quickly. We blew the breaker on the power box outside a total of 5 times over the weekend. Running the A/C on low and 1 tv if we used the power water heater it would blow the breaker. The site we were on 23 the sewer hook up was uphill.. odd, it took some work to get things cleared out of the line. No bath houses for those that like to shower in a bathhouse. depending on your site area you had to navigate in some narrow and steep hills. Also had to check in thru the hotel next to the campground and there was not a camp host on site. nor a store.


    over all it has just what you need an nothing more. Destination campground it is not. Stop over campground it pretty much scored a 10. If the power wouldn't of given us fits it would of been a 10 for our use of the campground.
    It saved us major headaches and stress navigating into holly river state park w/o our camper. I spent tons of summers in that area, If we were going to stay for more then a one day visit I would of towed the camper in to holly river. But we only spent one afternoon at the park for a family reunion.

    Hey, Sara. It sounds like a big place and one could say "it's got potential". I've sure seen, but not stayed in, worse. And you didn't put an X on the place, so it must be a fair place. I am sorry though, that y'all had electrical troubles.

    Talking with the maintenance manager at the little CG we always liked, and he says nearly all their electrical is over 40 years old. The only new stuff in the system are the 50 amp hook-ups. He tells me that that's pretty much typical of LOTS of parks and CGs. That kind of age takes a toll.

      This KOA isn't very old. 15 years ago it wasn't even there.

      B/c there was not a camp host on site we didn't have anyone to talk to about the issue. When we spoke the the girl at the front desk of the hotel that checked us in she said that the manager of the campground was not there for the weekend. They don't have that typical KOA feeling. I would most def stay there again. It was just a bummer having to go flip the power breaker again and again.

      I wonder if the 50 amp sections had as much problems.

        I do have to say I like the idea of having someone responsible for the place on the property. And I would be willing to bet the 50 amp section fared better. It's probably all newer equipment in there. And maybe not. Just my .

            The site was 30 amp only. It did not have a 50 amp plug option. Had that been an option we too would of done the same thing to see if it faired better.

              If you would have had a meter and saw how low the voltage was you probably would have left. I won't run the A/C under 110v.
