Unzip, unplug, unwind: Experience glamping – or glamorous camping under the stars and in style in our immaculate, 13-by-13 tent with wooden flooring and erected on a wooden deck. Our tent is in a private area in the New River Gorge Campground, less than 2 miles from New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville, West Virginia.

With a 10.5-foot ceiling at its peak, our tent is open and airy. Unzip in the morning and take in a nice breath of fresh, country air. Then step out onto the deck as birds sing with the sunrise. At day’s end, enjoy the deck again while sitting out under the stars.

Near Fayetteville, our tent is just a few minutes from the New River and 15 minutes from the Gauley River and Summersville Lake. This is the heart of whitewater rafting country. Our tent is near national parks and areas offering an array of activities, such as Adventures on the Gorge, Ace, and all other rafting and zip lines companies. Ask us for directions to those that interest you.

You will be close to whitewater rafting, kayaking, mountain climbing, incredible hiking and biking trails, and many other activities. And our tent is just three minutes from the area’s best rock-climbing sites in New River Gorge National Park.

Outside the tent, there is a picnic table. You can cook on the fire ring and later push aside the grate to sit around the fire. Firewood is for sale for $5 a bundle.

Please message us at any time with questions.

We want each guest to have an awesome experience, so please review our listing thoroughly to make sure this is the experience you want. We do not allow pets.

♦ Ask about one-night weekend stays.

♦ Ask about discounts we have for most local activities.

♦ Ask about the specials we have from time to time on our rates.

♦ We also have tiny houses available near our tent.

♦ After booking is confirmed, we will email you detailed information on how to do self check-in when you arrive. You can call/text with questions. Then you can enjoy the beautiful property on your own.

 

THE SPACE AND FACILITIES

Our tent has a queen-sized mattress on the brass bed. Twin air mattresses are available, allowing up to two more people to sleep in the tent. We provide all linens and bed comforter. If the forecast is for colder weather, however, you might want to bring extra sleeping bags or warm comforters.

A table and two chairs are inside the tent. While we do allow alcohol, there is no storage available for food, drink, or ice.

Our tent has electric lights, and there are outlets available for recharging phones and other devices.

The bathhouse is nearby in a separate building that has bathrooms and showers, and free use of washers and dryers. Sets of towels (bath, hand, and washcloth) are furnished in the tent. When finished using them, please leave them in the basket provided in the tent. If you plan on rafting, please bring your own beach towels.

 

THE CLIMATE The area has medium to high temperatures in the mountains, warmer on strong-sun days, and cooler nights. Please bring the appropriate clothing for the season and climate. Please check weather reports. We suggest clothing layers, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, and plenty of water to stay hydrated.

THE ACTIVITIES

♦ Rafting is available for ages 6 and older, with skill levels ranging from totally inexperienced to experienced.

♦ Stand-up paddle-boarding.

♦ Fishing.

♦ Mountain biking.

♦ Zip lining – Seasonal, but Adventures on the Gorge also offers winter zip lining. TreeTops Canopy Zip Line Canopy Tour is open year-round. Reservations are required.

♦ Rock climbing.

♦ Bird watching.

♦ Hiking – USA Today readers voted the Endless Wall Loop Trail the top national park day hike in America. It's very accessible and views are stunning. Long Point is another favorite trail. If you are not a hiker, several scenic views require little to no hiking.

Stop at Canyon Rim Visitor Center for the 411 on the best hikes and views. It’s just around the corner from Adventures on the Gorge. Get info on ghost towns and hiking trails nearby.

♦ New River Gorge Bridge Walk – This bridge’s catwalk once was the realm of safety inspectors and “bridge poachers” – daring locals who made this wild stroll a favorite midnight activity. Now the bridge hikes are offered daily by the folks at Bridge Walk, which has a super-strong cable from end to end. They’ll set you in a harness and clip you onto the cable for your tour.

♦ ATV/dirt bike riding – While this is not a local activity, on the way here or on the way home, the historic town of Matewan is 2½ hours from Fayetteville and is in the heart of the area known for the famous Hatfield and McCoy feud. If you have ATVs or dirt bikes, this area has amazing terrain for riding in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. Ask us about combining your stay in the New River Gorge area with lodging in the Hatfield-McCoy area.

♦ Shop for antiques in downtown Fayetteville. Just five minutes over the New River Gorge Bridge are a slew of mom-and-pop antique shops, not to mention a bunch of great restaurants, all within walking distance of each other.

♦ Visit Chetty’s Pub and watch the day’s game on the big-screen TVs there. This is the place to unwind with a brew and some great food. Watch your rafting trip at the end of the day in Chetty’s as well.

♦ Visit the tasting room at Bridge Brew Works, not far from downtown Fayetteville. ♦ Just relaxing.
