Buffalo Gap Retreat is a beautiful mountain escape just 35 minutes west of Winchester, VA near the beautiful town of Capon Bridge, WV.     This particular large private family campsite is ideal for up to 20 people and 6 tents.... surrounded by a wrap around creek and 2 bridges, secluded with lots of trees, yet still close to all of the beautiful amenities of Buffalo Gap.

With many on-site and things nearby to do including kayaking & canoeing (provided), a wood fired sauna, beach, lake, volleyball, horseshoes, ladders and corn hole, creeks, bon-fires, fire pits, charcoal grills and more, Buffalo Gap makes for a great mountain escape.

Our property includes a 3200 square foot lake view dining hall with concession bar and soon a weekend cafe and beer and wine sales, as well as a huge stage with occasional performances, concerts and even Open Mic many Friday or Saturdays.

We also have a 2 acre lake with a log cabin wood fired sauna and floating dock, great for fishing and playing.... and a sandy beach area with volleyball.

Further we have a 4000 square foot covered log-hewn pavilion with games and shelter from weather as well as a 10,000 square foot gym with 8 basketball nets and two full court.  

We have a lower main campground area with 25 stone fire pits and an upper, hillside and lakeview camping area with 11 stone fire pits.  Many sites have picnic tables and a few have charcoal grills - but grills and picnic tables are located in several common areas for all to use.

My family and friends camped at the "Island". Its a clean camp with beautiful view and the sounds of a stream makes your nights sleep go well. Port-a-John near by. The shower and other bathrooms are a short walk and rustic. The lake is well set up and clean!! lots of side activities and everyone was nice.

I loved this place! The site was perfect for our group of 19. All the amenities were a really nice addition, and the site isn't too far from great hike spots. I'm definitely coming back!

Came with a group of 18 other college students for the 4th of July and we had a great time! Campgrounds were beautiful, amenities clean, and everyone around really nice. Vince was super helpful and accommodating and there were nice fireworks for the 4th.
