The Spectacular Spot In West Virginia Where You Can Camp Right On The Beach

Camp on the beach? In West Virginia? Impossible! Except… it’s actually not. True, we don’t have ocean beaches. But we’re no parched desert, either, so we’ve got plenty of alternatives, like beautiful lake and river beaches that are scattered all throughout the state. And yes, you absolutely can camp on a few of them, including a particularly scenic, sandy spot along the New River in West Virginia’s famous New River Gorge National Park and Preserve.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

To learn more about how to reach Grandview Sandbar Campground and what other National Park guidelines you’ll need to follow for camping there, visit the National Park Service website. And while you’re in the area, be sure to check out the ruins of the abandoned mining town of Royal, which is also located along Glade Creek Road not far from the campground!
