Located in the foothills of the Potomac Highlands, Buffalo Gap is a 1950s era former Mountain Kids Camp turned Retreat by a group of individuals who had a vision of creating a space where family and friends can enjoy a relaxing mountain get-away. Situated between two mountains -- Sandy Ridge and Slane's Knob -- Buffalo Gap sits in the gap between the two. Consequently, the 70 acre property is teaming with creeks and streams, along with a 1.5 acre spring fed lake, making it a peaceful and beautiful retreat from the daily stresses of life. Rent a cabin, camp, have a wedding or family reunion, enjoy our lakeview café, swim, hike, kayak, canoe, and so much more. With the nearby town of Capon Bridge just 10 minutes away and the Shenandoah Valley city of Winchester just 35 minutes, so much beauty and convenience with our riverside town and nearby bigger city for additional dining and entertainment as well as conveniences.

Creekside Site #24 @ Buffalo Gap
I absolutely loved Buffalo Gap and we will definitely be going back. The amenities couldn’t have been more lovely - gorgeous pond where we went fishing and canoeing, game room where my kids played ping pong, bathrooms and showers, and more. The campsite itself was only so-so. I would probably stay next time at one of the sites overlooking the water or at the family campsite, which was awesome.

Wonderful Place to Stay!
The place is very beautiful. The hosts were very accommodating and welcoming to the guests. I forgot my air bed pump but they were so helpful to make things work for us. Their goal is to make people comfortable and happy during their stay, and they didn’t fail us. I would strongly recommend this place to my friends.

Creekside RV Site #30 @ Buffalo Gap
Summer camp with great amenities
Great property- Pros: feels like summer camp with the rec room, lake with kayaks, group bonfire. The kids were so excited about getting to kayak all afternoon. The lake is so clean but not that big, perfect for kids. The cafe was nice. The area is very quiet with no through traffic. Cons: the bathrooms are far from the tent area. It isn't nature immersive. It felt more like camping in a public park. Kids were disappointed there weren't any trees to climb or woods to explore. If those aren't part of it camping expectations, then this place is awesome. The creek by the tents wasn't really accessible to play in. All in all, a fine place, but not what we were looking for this trip.
