250 acres

Property was owned by my great grandfather , He lost 150 acres in the early 1900's due to a bad debt from neighboring landowner. Was so happy to be able to repurchase the 150 acres back in 2016,now own the original land tract and added more. 250 acres in total. Portions were strip mined around 1978-1982 creating some flat fields and access to all property. I might add that strip mining if done properly can and does enhance the property. Ponds were built to catch runoff and several new animal species moved in waterfowl ,muskrats, and beavers. The beavers have constructed large dams on property further adding to the beauty. Have seen several bald eagles on and around the property.

A beautiful location & great hosts!
What a beautiful location! It is so close to Summersville Lake and Gauley River. Our hosts were friendly and sooooo helpful as we had rain come in and our van could not make it way up to the top to our campsite on the second night so they quickly relocated us to another beautiful site lower down. The next day they brought us our firewood and a picnic table to our new site and everything was fantastic even with the rain. Shower was available with nice hot water. We enjoyed paddle boarding to Pirates Cove and beyond and the next day we kayaked Summersville lake. A great adventure. We will definitely return to this Hipcamp!

Peace and quiet
THIS PLACE IS A SLICE OF WEST VIRGINIA HEAVEN!! Expect beautiful flora and fauna. Wildlife like birds, butterflies, deer, bunnies and anything else you could imagine! Plenty of different ways to stay. Primitive camping, campers, or a cabin. I only got to stay one night hit I can’t wait to come back!

Not what we expected, then …
Showed up at the campground and asked for any specific pointers on where to put our camper, but was told to just head on back and take our pick, left or right, doesn’t matter. Not knowing what we were getting into or where we were going is a little strange, but we are adults, we can handle it. So, that’s what we did, and found a nice full hook up spot with a good view. Granted, it’s not what we expected based on what we saw online, a bit of a letdown, but it was OK. Unfortunately, I was feeling more and more I’ll, which turned out to be Covid. I went to bed very early, about 8 PM I think, and then heard my wife having an intense discussion with a gentleman who insisted we were in his spot. I was too sick to want to get out of bed, but this gentleman insisted that he had paid for an entire year for that spot and we were in it, he was obviously very upset . My wife eventually was able to withdraw from that conversation, though I don’t think he was very happy. Kind of put a damper on the whole experience, in addition to me being pretty sick. I don’t think we will be returning. It seems there are many people leasing long-term places there, and not keeping them up very well. Things are laid out a little willy-nilly.

Excellent tent camping!
John has a wonderful piece of land with great views and very private camping sites. Our site was well maintained and felt secluded, our dog had a great time running around the property and ponds. Wonderful host and property!
