Try thorn Creek, just 3 miles south of town, turn L at the big Pendelton Corporate park, drive across the bridge and about a half mile up the road, look for campground on the right.

Staying at Seneca Shadows, Spruce Knob, or Big Bend means 95% of your money leaves impoverished WV and goes straight into the pockets of American Land and Leisure in Utah. If you stay at Seneca, stay at Yokum's, either Princess Snowbird or behind the restaurant about a mile down the road, right on the river.

Mike's right about Thorn Creek. The owers are nice and the sites are clean, level and private. I think it was only $4.00 per person last time I stayed there but don't quote me on the price.

I think it's up to an enormous $7 apiece, now... still one of the best bargains within ten minutes of Franklin for a cabin with a stove, fridge, shower and bunk beds.

I think you need to have enough people to make a minimum of $49.00... but how many people (besides me) don't have 6 climbing friends? Hell, I rarely see groups smaller than 8-10 at any crag, any more...
