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 12 people and 4 tents.... very private hidden away location 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 wife and I took our 3 kids (ages 13,10, and 5) to buffalo gap and we had a blast! We had the nook private campsite it was exactly as advertised. Secluded but so close to the cafe, activities, and the lake. Firewood is a couple steps away and Barbara was so sweet to greet us upon arrival. It is a great family environment with so much to do. They even ended up having a firework show and live music while we were there! Highly recommend Buffalo Gap and we will be back!

Great spot for our group! Close to the water for kids to play, close to bathrooms for a big group and such an overall nice retreat area. Parking isn't right near the site, so just keep that in mind as you pack that you do go up and down a hill to load/unload, but overall a great experience!
