Just get out there! Don’t worry about packing a bunch of gear. We’ve got you covered! Just throw the sleeping bags and cooler full of food in the car and head our way! The tent is super spacious and is furnished with up to 4 air mattresses, a table and a lantern. The rental includes use of the park-style grills, fire pit grill and even a camping cook stove. Your first load of fire wood is free and we’ll even through in some charcoal. We’ve got shelters to cook under and tables and camp chairs you can use. Seriously, we’ve got you covered! It’s finally starting to get hot and the river will feel great! Come join us at the Gauley River Wild & Woolly/Tawney Farm campground and sit back and relax and enjoy the summer. Don't forget. It's PRIVATE primitive camping here which means you will enjoy exclusive use of the campground! Nothing but peace and quiet and solitude to enjoy what nature has to offer.
The only exception to the private camping is the day after Labor Day through mid-October (Gauley whitewater season). During Gauley whitewater season, we open up our fields to hundreds of kayakers from across the country who seek the thrills of class V rapids that comes only once a year when the US Corps of Engineers releases the water from Summersville Lake, creating the world renowned rapids.
