Abrams Creek Campground and Retreat brings you as close as possible to pristine nature. Tent sites are generously sized, spaced well apart, shaded, and on soft natural earth. Cabins are secluded and set into the forest.

You are never far from our wild, whitewater stream. In some places, it is a constant source of energy and playfulness; in other places, it is peaceful and calming, inviting you to soak in its beauty.

Camping at Abrams Creek is more like camping in a nature preserve, 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. 

  We have portapotties, and a shower room at the main lodge with hot and cold water.  All sanitary facilities are *sterilized* between guests; we have taken every measure to safeguard your health! 

 Campsites and cabins are well spaced out, so that there is never a feeling of crowding.   Many are riverside sites; you can choose between wild whitewater, rushing river, and wider calmer areas. All campsites are soft, level, shaded forest floor with a picnic table, fire ring, and block-and-board bench. We sell charcoal, charcoal lighter, propane, fire starter, and firewood, if you need any of these, all at very competitive prices.  In particular, please do not bring your own firewood.  This can spread many tree diseases that can harm our beautiful forests!

 Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash when outside your tent. Most other pets are not allowed; please call if you have specific questions.   

 We also rent charcoal grills and propane stoves.  The campground has 20 acres of hemlock forest bordered by a wild whitewater stream.  Some areas are boulders, pools, and turbulent water—great to watch or play in.  One large area towards the end of the campground is a calm wading area good for children (with careful supervision of course), and just past that is a deeper section, 5’-7’ deep, that is good for swimming.    

There is not WiFi on the campground, but there is WiFi in the vicinity of the main lodge house.  There is also a phone you can use on the lodge porch, with free calls to anywhere in the US, in case your cell phone does not have reception. When you arrive, please come to the main lodge to register--just bear to the left as you enter the grounds.    

You are welcome on the grounds anytime that day, but your campsite will not be available until 3 pm.  If you will be arriving after 8 pm, please call when you are on your way so we know about what time to expect you. . Check-out time is 1 pm  on your last day with us.  

We offer a variety of accommodations to suit every taste: for those who like roughing it, we have tent sites, and rustic cabins with or without electricity.  For those who would like sheets, blankets, and towels provided and full cooking facilities, we have a six-bedroom guest house, and a 2-bedroom retreat cottage with full kitchen, bath, washer/dryer, and more. We also have a conventional motel 3 miles from the campground.

Abrams creek was a perfect get away for me and my partner. The campsites were pretty much exactly as described and it was on relatively close distance to many wonderful parks to explore. The staff was helpful and friendly which made the space welcoming and safe. They were especially covid conscious which was a major plus for us. My only suggestion to others is to maybe book directly through their website rather than hipcamp. For some reason when i reserved through hipcamp the staff at check in never got a notice of it therefore it was confusing on both ends on whether my reservation went through or not. They handled it fine and was eventually resolved but next time I'll just book directly through them so that won't happen again. Definitely worth the stay and I'm sure I'll be back at abrams creek whenever I camp in West virginia

The scenery was absolutely stunning. We had a whole creek with tidepool and small waterfall literally right next to us. We woke up and just explored the creek for a while. There are plenty of indoor showers and two outdoor ones that also have hot water. I honestly wish I'd had a few more days to spend here.

Abrams Creek was a dream! The sites are spacious and stunning - well kept picnic tables and fire rings. The staff at was so kind and welcoming 🤗 Camping during COVID-19 times can a lil stressful, but the set up at Abram's Creek was perfect - literally, cleanest porta potties EVER. The forest was mossy, the creek was calming, and the leaves were so colorful - we just cannot wait to go back. Thank you Abram's Creek!!

Lovely place and the river setting was beautiful. Not every site is convenient to the lodge - there’s a good variety of cabin/tent options - something for everyone.

The forest floor was coated with soft pine needles so the tent set up comfortably and with the river sound we slept like babies.

We happened to get the last site available in a Saturday so it was probably the smallest of all the sites yet it turned out well for us. Will stay again.

Some tent sites are a little close but overall a nice experience. Site of camp is beautiful with some sweet private cabins and tent site.

This was our favorite Hipcamp we’ve stayed at so far! Such a beautiful property and very welcoming hosts. It was the perfect way to get to enjoy fall foliage. We appreciated that the handout with suggestions of things to do included directions too.

Made plans for the weekend to camp outdoors. Then saw the forecast for a lot of rain the second night. They helped us rebook into a cabin for night two. The tent sites by the river are gorgeous and it was such an easy set up due to the ground being soft.

Check in was easy and straightforward

Definitely put it on the list to come back.
