We have 5 deluxe cabins in the woods that are great for getaways, families reunions, weddings, or just a visit to the area when you don’t want to bring anything. Fully equipped, clean, and ready for your adventure. Or, if you have ever thought of living in a tiny home or are a new or seasoned "glamping" enthusiast you will want to check out one of tiny cabins. Choose from the Farmhouse, the Barn, Earth, Air, Fire, or Water. These are not your typical campground cabins - they have comfy beds, great indoor/outdoor space, and are perfect for couples or small families.
The things that make us unique are the incredible views and scenery, spacious sites and beautiful grounds, and accessibility to tons of local attractions. From the biggest RV to the smallest tent we have a place for you. No camper? No problem! You can rent one of our Tiny Vintage Campers. All that's left is to relax in our Hammock Hangout, let your dogs run free in our enormous Dog Park, and let the kids climb aboard our Pirate Ship Playground.
We have a fleet of pontoon boats, kayaks, canoes, and Stand Up Paddle Boards along with all the gear you need to explore Summersville Lake. Our deluxe Pontoon boats hold up to 10 persons and 2 dogs so you can take your family and then some. Bimini tops, bluetooth radios, fish and depth finders, and knowledgeable guides to point you in the right direction.
The Summersville Lake Lighthouse is one of the coolest attractions – the only working lighthouse in West Virginia. Thousands of people climb to the top every year and enjoy the view for miles. Will you be next? Take a tour and you will hear her unique story and other interesting facts about the lake and the area.
