Abrams Creek Campground/Retreat

25 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents20 acres · Mt. Storm, WV
Abrams Creek is like camping in a nature preserve, rather than in a commercial campground.  On our campground, there are no generators, loud electronics, or other things that would distract from appreciating the sights and sounds of this pristine natural environment.   And this is always a great place to beat the heat! We have a mountain climate; the peak temperature most days in the summer is in the high 70's or very low 80's, and at night, temperatures go down to about 60.  You'll be breathing cool, clean, fresh mountain air all day long! Hot showers are included, and all sanitary facilities are *sterilized* between guests.  We have taken every measure to safeguard your health! We are located in the mountainous Potomac Highlands region of West Virginia. Our vision is an environmentally conscious, eco-friendly campground developed in harmony with nature. We are not only a business, but also serve as an anchor for others who want to live more simply and close to the earth. The concept of rural revitalization means reinventing rural life so that it is economically sound, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally satisfying. Ask any of our staff if you would like to learn more about this!

Coon Creek Cove

3 sites · RVs, Tents80 acres · Gassaway, WV
Our property once had a vibrant back woods community. During the Civil War a Union garrison was up the creek and traveled through here to the river. In the 1800's the Brady Family Farmed here. There was a Church that has long since burned down. This place is great for metal detecting! We moved here in 2018, there was nothing else but a open well, fields and woods. We live in a trailer and are building a farm. There's chickens and pigs, that you can meet! Learn more about this land: We are a small, mostly off grid homestead farm with chickens, ducks, pigs, and bunnies, located 1.25 miles off the paved road, over 2 miles from the nearest residence. Our hideaway farm is 80 acres centered on the convergence of two babbling creeks, in a valley between three mountains. We are happy to teach you about our homestead lifestyle or set your campsite and just relax. We practice permaculture and follow organic farming practices. Our Main Circle is where our bonfires, cabana, and home trailer is. You are welcome to camp at the Main Circle where we have electricity or you can camp elsewhere.  We own the bike shop "Bigfoot Braxxie's Bikes" in Gassaway, WV.

We specialize in electric Ebikes so visit our shop and take out a bike while you are here! See Extras for bike rentals. We've adjusted our hours for check in to 5pm because we staff the bike shop ourselves. If you want to check in earlier you can meet us at the bike shop or we can make special arrangements for you, just ask! Please do NOT bring firewood from out of the area. This is one way invasive insects get transported. There are NO Ash Trees because of the bore beetle. We offer firewood, and there are plenty of places close to get FREE firewood, just ask. Campers are encouraged to camp at Kolb Field along Coon Creek, under a great-grandfather walnut tree or hike the mountain and set camp secluded away from everyone. We have a public dirt road that is seldom traveled through the property, we do suggest having an SUV or 4x4 when coming but, regular cars can get here and we can help you get to your site in our pick up truck. RVs and non-4x4 cars can only get to the camp area during dryer times of the year, please ask if you have a RV. If you have a car that can't get to Kolb Field because of high water, we do have other areas you can camp at. Our farm is a great destination for overland camping and getting your pick up truck a little dirty!  Because we are mostly off grid we do ask that what you pack in please pack out, take your trash with you. Be sure you bring your own mess kit and cup. We prefer that you use aluminum cans for your beverages so we can recycle them for you, we can not recycle plastic or glass. Plus we like to be sure there not broken bottles left behind so we can be bare foot! We are very dog friendly. You are welcome with your dog. Let us know if you want to play with our happy dogs, and want to have them around your camp! Please only bring your dogs if they are both dog and other animal friendly. If there is ANY CONCERN your dog will not get along with our dogs please ask us for a recomendation for some place other to stay. Our dogs patrol our farm to keep our animals safe! And our animals, particularly our chickens and ducks, free roam during the day, some may make it close to your camping area, depending on where you choose. We ask that you keep your dogs tied or maintain control of your dog. Our three dogs are free roaming, they keep predators away and may lead your dog off too far. If you do let your dog off the lead we are not responsible if they get lost. That being said, our dogs love to play with guests and we are always happy to let you and your dogs interact with them!

The best camping near Audra State Park guide

Overview

About

Do you love water parks but hate all that fake plastic stuff and chlorine? You’ve gotta make your next camping adventure a visit to West Virginia’s Audra State park. Straddling the expansive Middle Fork River, this deeply wooded wonderland is known for its white-water kayaking, natural swimming pool carved out of gorgeous bedrock, and the Alum Cave overhang. Wooden walkways weave under the intensely curved stone, winding around shimmering turquoise waters that provide tranquil hikes and photo opportunities that are almost too good to be true. There are tons of picnic areas near the river, so pack yourself some snacks and take in the scenery with a sammy or perhaps even a cheese plate! Be sure to get out to the surrounding neighborhoods, too—there are plenty of historic covered bridges in this secluded setting.

Notable campgrounds

  • The main campground offers a mix of 67 tent and trailer sites, each equipped with a picnic table and grill for a classic camping experience.
  • Convenient amenities like coin-operated washing machines and dryers, along with two modern bathhouses, ensure a comfortable stay amid nature.
  • A centrally located playground provides a space for families to enjoy, making it an ideal spot for creating lasting memories.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Arrive early, as all sites at Audra State Park are first-come, first-served, with no reservations available.
  • Visit during off-peak times, such as weekdays or outside of summer months, for a better chance at securing a site.
  • Keep an eye on the park's open and close dates, typically mid-April to mid-October, to plan your trip accordingly.
  • Explore nearby camping options if the park is full, ensuring you have a backup plan for your outdoor adventure.

When to go

The best time to visit Audra State Park is from mid-April to mid-October when the campground is open. Summer offers lush greenery and full access to park amenities, while fall brings a spectacular display of colors. Winter visits are less ideal due to the park's closure and chilly conditions.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and pack accordingly, as conditions can change rapidly in the West Virginia mountains.
  • Be aware that the campground closes from mid-October to mid-April; call ahead for exact dates.
  • Remember, there are no reservable campsites; all are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • For safety, familiarize yourself with the park's wildlife and bring appropriate gear for outdoor activities.
  • Don't forget to bring coins for the washing machines and dryers, adding convenience to your camping experience.
