Welcome to Tentrr Camping in West Virginia’s Mid-Ohio Valley

Camping in the Mid-Ohio Valley of West Virginia is a trip through history, from colonial times to the present. From elegant Victorian homes to covered wooden bridges to ferry boats and historic hotels (plus some historic taverns and breweries), you can really get into West Virginia’s past by making the Mid-Ohio Valley your next camping destination.

Starting in Parkersburg, you can camp near Blennerhassett Island Historical State Par, where you’ll not only be treated to a 19th century hotel with manicured gardens and carriage rides (and a wonderful restaurant). You get the island by ferry, and there you can learn about a mysterious Aaron Burr conspiracy.

The Mid-Ohio Valley is also home to a camper’s--and backpacker’s--paradise. It’s along the 72-mile-long North Bend Rail Trail which follows a historic railroad track, passes through 13 tunnels, rural countryside, and many historic sites. It’s open for hiking, biking and even horseback riding.

Also at North Bend you can paddle on the lake--it’s perfect for canoers of all ages--as well as great kayaking water. There’s trophy bass fishing--catch-and-release for largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass. If you want to catch and keep your fish just head up river for muskies and catfish.

Camping outside of Ripley, you can kayak the Mill Creek Water Trail, a journey from Ripley down 20 miles to Cottagevilled. You’ll go right under the 97-foot Staats Mill Covered Bridge.

So whatever you’re interested in--especially if you love calm and relaxing hikes and trails with a little history--you’ll find it when camping in West Virginia’s Mid-Ohio Valley.
