Camping at Possum Holler Camp will provide you the perfect blend of solitude and recreation access. You will truly be in the heart of the New River National Park, yet still feel secluded in the beautiful woods without neighbors. You will have private access to beautiful and idyllic Mill Creek, which has many beautiful emerald pools and is even seasonally stocked with rainbow trout! Within a mile you can access the New River Gorge Bridge and the Canyon Rim Visitor Center, and you are equally close to the park's world class climbing, rafting, hiking, ziplining, and mountain biking at the New River Gorge National Park and surrounding areas. Your group will have the entire camp to yourselves, so there's no need to worry about noisy neighbors. Our driveway has recently been revamped to include more flat parking and a less steep access route! While these improvements are great, we still caution our guests to avoid bringing large trailers and to use 4WD if available in an attempt to minimize rutting in the future. We want you to enjoy a lovely campfire, but we ask that you purchase firewood locally because invasive pest species can travel in firewood. Possum Holler Camp is a Leave No Trace campsite, guests are asked to pack out anything they bring in and leave the area undisturbed. This includes damaging vegetation, creating new fire rings, or altering the natural area in any way. Also, please do not camp in the meadow area and only use the cleared out areas in the woods surrounding the parking and picnic/fire area for pitching tents. If you stay below the high water line, then feel free to move as far up or downstream Mill Creek as you like. The creek is indescribably beautiful in both directions! But please keep in mind that there is private property once you are above the high water line, please do not trespass on our neighbor's property.Pitch your tent along picturesque Mill Creek, where you will have access to a picnic table, charcoal grill, fire ring, and camp chairs. A variety of fish live in the creek, including stocked trout - bring your pole! You will be the only group at the whole site - nearly three acres - so you get the feel of being secluded without losing quick access to amenities. The site is minutes from all of the best New River Gorge attractions. You won't find a more perfect blend of beautiful solitude and convenient access to recreation, shops, restaurants, and bars. The site includes a number of flat parking spaces for car campers and campervans.

Dog mom approved 👍🏼
We primarily booked this stay for our dogs. After exploring New River Gorge NP it was nice to let them run around off leash. We stayed late February and we got to see a dust of snow which was beautiful to see on the Rhododendrons!!

Beautiful site! I will definitely be back. So many nice spots to pitch a tent. Covered picnic table, grill, and a great fire ring. Matthew even gave us some suggestions for climbs in the area. 10/10

Possum Holler Camp
What a great spot! Matthew was super responsive and accommodating and we greatly appreciate him letting us enjoy this camping space. Lovely area to set up and plenty of space to walk around if you want to. Definitely recommend walking around the water but be careful on the rocks and wear water shoes. Really appreciated the tarp over the picnic table too. Would certainly love to visit again!

Highly recommend
Fantastic campsite!! Feels secluded but is close to town if you need anything. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone. FYI - We drove a FWD car and had no issues.

Amazing Site
This campsite is one of my favorites I have ever stayed at. Sensational location for easy access to rafting trips, a beautiful and private nook in the woods, and a well maintained site - complete with a covered picnic table and lawn chairs. Next time I go back to the Gorge i will be looking for this site. For anyone worried about the nearby (regional) airport, the flight noises stop at dark - so it’s not an issue for sleeping! And in general we did not find the flights frequent or loud. FYI - camp bathroom is a portalet but it was very clean and well maintained (like the site in general) so we all had no issues!
