OK, how much time do you have, and how are you travelling?
From Tampa, if you travel 300 miles a day, it will take 3 days to reach wv, and of course, you need three days to get back.
Not a leisurely one week trip.
If you have time for two weeks maybe taking a one day moving and two days relaxing plan would make more sense, and would let you work your way up to Asheville and maybe Mount Mitchell, before heading back.

Do a Google search for `west virginia tourism' and read what is recommended.

I 2nd that area.

Canaan Valley SP, Blackwater Falls SP, Seneca Rocks, Dolly Sods. Lots to see and do.

We really enjoy that area. Check out Seneca Shadows CG, nice spots and shady. Canaan Valley is a nice park, campsites are just ok but do have FHU if you're looking for that. Fantastic pool and golf course there as well.

Have fun & take your time. WV is awesome.

Click here to get started. Select "places to stay" and then click "campgrounds". That will give you a map of various campgrounds.

The sky is the limit. But I think anywhere you go in WV you are going to be in mountains and trees and hills and woods and curvy roads and ....

OK, Is your rig one that would lend itself well to the Blue Ridge Pkwy, and Skyline Drive?
Parkway map
Skyline Drive
You could start in the Smokies and finishing up near Harpers Ferry WV.
Then go west into some of the WV state parks as others have mentioned.
Along this route you would have Shenandoah National park, several caverns, and the restored areas around Harpers ferry along with the western parks and campgrounds.
