Overview

Overview

Battle Run Campground is conveniently located just south of Summersville, West Virginia, on the shores of the largest lake in the state.

Superb water quality and sheer sandstone cliffs make Summersville Lake a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

Natural Features:

Scenic Summersville Lake is known for its striking cliffs and quiet coves along 60 beautiful miles of shoreline. Dense forests of maple, oak, hickory, beech and birch trees cover the region.

Wildlife, including black bear, deer, grouse and turkey, is abundant in the area.

Recreation:

The 2700-acre lake provides excellent boating, water skiing, swimming and scuba diving.

Anglers will find large and smallmouth bass, walleye, panfish, and catfish. Trout are stocked below the dam in spring and fall.

Visitors also enjoy the great hiking, biking, hunting and picnicking opportunities on the lands surrounding the lake.

Whitewater rafting is available year-round on the world class Gauley River. The Summersville Lake area also offers technical rock climbing.

Facilities:

This large waterfront campground offers 107 campsites with electric hookups, along with seven primitive walk-to tent sites. Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water, laundry facilities and a dump station.

An accessible boat ramp and fishing dock are on-site. Younger campers love the park's playground and nature trails.

Nearby Attractions:

The historic Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park is a 10-minute drive from the campground. The park offers a museum, three Gauley River overlooks and hiking trails.

Summersville Lake Marina and Sarge's Dive Shop are 11 miles away, offering kayak and pontoon boat rentals. The town of Summersville, another five miles north, has several grocery stores, restaurants and service stations.
