The Great Outdoors

West Virginia is a gorgeous state, and you don’t have to go far to experience it. When you book a travel trailer rental in Philippi, be sure to visit Audra State Park in Buckhannon. A heavily wooded park with the Middle Fork River slicing through it, the state park is ideal for hiking, biking, geocaching, fishing, boating, and swimming. You can even bring your motorhome rental from Philippi and stay at the park’s modern campground.

West Virginia State Wildlife Center in Upshur County is not too far away and a great place to spend some time outdoors, especially if you love animals. This modern zoological facility showcases both native and introduced state wildlife. View woodland wildlife along an accessible 1.25-mile interpretive nature trail. There are foxes, cougars, deer, bison, turkey vultures, otters, snakes, and much more, so be sure to stop by and learn more about the area’s wildlife at the Wildlife Center.

Tygart Lake State Park sits on the shores of Tygart Lake. Situated in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, here you’ll be rewarded with some of the most spectacular views of the state when you visit. Known for its 10-mile long, 1,750-acre lake, this is a haven for scuba divers, swimmers, kayakers, boaters, anglers, water skiers, and all those who enjoy spending time on the water. Want to spend more than a day here? Be sure to check out the park’s modern partial hookup sites.

RV Parks

Exploring the City

Familiarize yourself with the area when you book an RV rental in Philippi and visit Adaland Mansion. The 23-room, Greek Revival house was built in 1870 and reflects the early history of West Virginia. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the surrounding area — which was the site of the first land battle of the American Civil War — is brimming with history. Book a tour of the house and grounds when you book a camper rental in Philippi.

Are covered bridges your thing? There are at least two you can check out when you rent an RV in Philippi. There’s the Carrollton Covered Bridge in Volga which was built in 1856 and is the second longest and third oldest surviving covered bridge in West Virginia. There’s also the Philippi Covered Bridge on the Tygart Valley River. This historical bridge was heavily used by both Union and Confederate troops during the American Civil War.

In the mood for a scare? Be sure the visit Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. Also known as the Weston State Hospital, this National Historic Landmark served as the home for mentally ill patients beginning in the mid-1800s. Over 160 years old, the asylum made a lasting impression on local and national history. If you’re into historical things, sign up for a history tour, but if you’re up for a spook, you can sign up for a paranormal tour as well.
