Summersville Lake Retreat & Lighthouse offers fully equipped West Virginia Cabins, incredible camping, from primitive to full service, a variety of clean, well kept rental watercraft to choose from, and Summersville Lake Lighthouse Tours that overlook the cliffs of West Virginia's largest lake and the Gauley River National Recreation Area.

Why Us?

Because with us, trademark hospitality is more than just a tag line...it's a way of life.  From the gatekeeper who greets you upon your arrival, to the housekeepers and groundskeepers who help us put our best foot forward during your stay, this is what we do here in West Virginia. 

When you are here as our guest, you can take comfort knowing that we live and play here too, and take pride in our local knowledge of the region.  Whether it's the latest information on one of the many State Parks that are literally at our doorstep or bet on the best fishing hole or climbing spot just down the trail from us, you'll feel as though you've found an old friend to guide you around during your stay.  

While the state of West Virginia reopens for business, we want to let you know what we are doing here at the Summersville Lake Retreat & Lighthouse to support you and your travel plans. As it always has been, the safety and security of our guests and staff remain our highest priority. We take great pride in keeping our high standards of cleanliness and maintenance of our facilities and are implementing additional measures developed in consultation with our local and state health authorities.

We have reopened our deluxe cabins, full-service RV sites and water/electric RV sites must be self-contained, no Popups or outside showers, the Lighthouse and Gift Shop. Please bear with us, as we feel that it is important that we get it right when it comes to offering the level of service that you have come to expect from us.  Unfortunately, there is a Visitor Restriction in place due to Covid 19.

These days, getting away from it all here at the Summersville Lake Retreat & Lighthouse takes on a new appeal. The layout of our campsites and cabins allows for the physical distancing nature of a retreat while you pursue individual interests whether it be hiking, biking or climbing, or just to enjoy some downtime.

We believe that it is in challenging times like these that the power of hospitality is needed most of all.  Whether you are traveling now or in the future, we look forward to hosting you here at the Summersville Lake Retreat & Lighthouse… Where incredible scenery and warm hospitality meet!

Stay safe and we hope to see you soon!
