“Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia, as it is called, is home to America’s newest national park, New River Gorge. Formerly just a national river, this area is now receiving the highest protections available for parks and preserves. A new national park sounds like a great excuse to take the RV out for the weekend (do we really need an excuse though?). We’ve compiled a list of all of the Harvest Hosts locations found in West Virginia at the time this article was written. Buckle up, grab your Harvest Hosts membership and your America the Beautiful Pass, and let’s see what West Virginia has to offer.
