Bob and I stayed at Cox Camping last weekend and had a fabulous time. It’s a bit of a rustic place, even though they have water/electric sites (no sewer hookup though). We arrived on Thursday afternoon and left Saturday afternoon. Paid $70 for two nights in a site with 30A/water. When we arrived, there was one other camper on the opposite side of the loop, and that was IT. They left Friday morning, and another camper showed up Friday late afternoon, but we barely saw/heard them. It was SO QUIET!!! Lots of nature… including a skunk that walked around the site around 4am, but we were safely in the van and didn’t have any issues (other than smelling it pass).
Facilities are a bit spartan; they have portapotties in the loops. There are showers, which are in converted handicap portapotty stalls. HOWEVER, the water was hot, and had great water pressure. And everything was clean, and there was nothing smelly about it, even though it was a hot and humid weekend. There is pretty decent WiFi at the campsites.
The main building has a small store and an eclectic collection of "junque" hanging from the walls and ceiling. There’s also a game room but we didn’t make use of it. There’s a little play area with stuff mostly for toddlers/little kids. There’s a pond for fishing (no swimming allowed). Lots of trails that we didn’t explore as we spent our time relaxing at the campsite. We’re so lazy.
The campground is about 10 miles outside of Berkeley Springs, off a hilly, twisty road that was… interesting. The last two miles are poorly paved and have lots of potholes. The closest grocery store is the Food Lion in Berkeley Springs.
