RV campgrounds South Branch of Potomac in WVA

Looking for suggestions for a nice campground along the South Branch of the Potomac in WVA. Preferrably wifi, cable or availability for our dish. We would love river front or view.

Suggestions?

have you been to this one? If so, were you able to pick up satellite?

Yes, been there.
I didn't try satellite but would believe it to work at many/most campsites.

Here's a screen shot from Dishpointer.com
Looks like many sites have a good "view" of the sky.
I use Dishpointer.com a lot to check in advance for line of sight.
Once we have our reservations and site number, I'll transpose the camp map to Google maps/Dishpointer and it's pretty easy to tell if you might have a chance of using your dish.

This is so helpful. Thank you. I didn't know about that website. I was going to try and ride out there. I just didn't know how tree covered it was since that is a definite issue.

Make sure you include a trip on the Potomac Eagle while you are there!

West Va camping

We were at Wapocoma Campground over Memorial Day Weekend. Very nice people, beautiful setting. I recommend it.
