Abrams Creek Campground/Retreat

25 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents20 acres · Mt. Storm, WV

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!

Sleepy Hollow Campground

22 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents5 acres · Grantsville, MD
This property and farm has been in our family for 3 generations. In 1964 my grandfather started the campground due to limited camping at New Germany. My father tells stories of it being filled with guests all summer long! Over the years there was few upgrades and now it's in need of a facelift. Landscaping, electric upgrades and bathhouse remodels were completed Spring 2021. We will continue to renovate in phases it's been a labor of love, but you can still see the beauty of this rural location and enjoy the peace and quiet. Hope you enjoy your stay. Lots of trees, shade and nature. It's located near New Germany State Park, 1.5 miles by car, less than a mile by foot. The state park has a lake and hiking trails. Garrett County has so much to offer, waterfalls, lakes, hiking, skiing, Amish gifts, history, fresh air, beautiful scenery. The campground was first started in 1964 by my grandparents, we are currently completing renovations in phases.

The best camping near Canaan Valley Resort State Park guide

Overview

About

Experience glamping at its finest on the grounds of Canaan Valley Resort State Park, where amenities on top of amenities make this a luxury experience even for those in tents. Laundry, showers, ice, and firewood are available near campsites, and pets can join in on the fun so long as they’re kept on a leash. Up at 3100 feet, fog rolls in across the tree lined mountains each morning in the highest valley east of the Rocky Mountains. This West Virginia gem, the second largest inland wetland in the country, offers sweeping views from the resort. Excellent skiing is available into late spring, as the slopes are in a prime spot to receive sun protection from tree coverage.

Limitless recreation opportunities will keep you busy until nightfall, with a champion-level golf course, Blackwater Falls, and sporting clay range nearby. The resort has a saltwater pool, and hosts a popular annual birding festival that’s worth planning your trip around even if you don’t love birds (you can avoid the crowds by choosing the next weekend). Pack a bottle of Prosecco and some gourmet snacks, because you’ll be camping in style at Canaan!

When to go

The best times to visit Canaan Valley Resort State Park are during the summer months for golf and hiking, and winter for skiing and snowboarding.
