An environmentally conscious, eco-friendly campground developed in harmony with nature. Abram's Creek Retreat &
Campground provides heavily forested tent camping and cozy cabin and tipi
rentals, as well as a Lodge House / Hostel along the banks of this small river. Located in Grant County in the
mountainous Potomac Highlands region of West Virginia, the Campground officially opened April 1, 2005.
The nearly 3/4 of a mile of pristine waterfront on the campground property
is characterized by massive boulders for sunning and relaxing, as well as cascading waters, waterfalls, rapids and deep
pools for swimming and tubing.
The campground includes 36 developed, forested campsites, most river-front or river-view, each with contained
fire pits and benches. There are also 10 cozy Cabins, 2 authentic Tipi's, and 2 Geodesic Domes available to rent. Abram's Creek Retreat is a large RV-free environment although about 10 sites on the property can accommodate small RV's and
A 18-bed Lodge - Guest House and Hostel was added to the campground facilities in 2007. The Lodge House rooms are
available for hosting workshops,
conferences, or simply entertaining. The Lodge House adjoins Abram's Creek Campground by two short gravel roads and the
campground combined with the Lodge House property has approximately 20 acres of land and 3,000 feet of waterfront.

and Campground have to offer your small or large, personal or corporate group.
The campground itself is nestled amid large moss covered boulders and a thick hemlock and mountain laurel rich forest at 2350 feet above sea level.
The stream-front property offers spectacular stream valley scenery suitable for exploring, hiking and playing in the pristine waters all day.
The nearly 20 acres of combined wilderness land are bounded by an outer boundary road and the stream. Downstream hikes will take explorers along
miles of deserted, isolated river valley virtually free of any signs of human existence. The 3/4 miles of stream front camping is primarily a hemlock forest
with massive moss covered boulders to pitch a tent between. 36 campsites and cabin / tipi locations are private and dispersed over 20 acres of spectacular
landscape. Bathroom facilities are on site (Port-a-Potty's in 2007), with separate men's and women's shower-house with sinks, mirrors, electricity, and of course hot water.
Electricity, county water, and limited low intensity street lighting arrived in Fall 2005 along with about 1 mile of graveled roads and
numerous parking spaces, at campsites, for about 80 cars.
There is a group / commUNITY bon-fire circle for daytime and evening gatherings / instrument playing / fire performances and cooking out. Fires at tent site
fire pits are welcome with free firewood found throughout the property or purchased stacked wood at $5.00 per bucket.
Abram's Creek ultimately drains into the North Branch of the Potomac River near the town of Kitzmiller, MD (about 8 miles away) where it may be responsible
for as much as 30-40% of the total water in the N. Branch of the Potomac (which is more like a big stream at Kitzmiller).
Abram's Creek Retreat will be hosting many overnight / weekend seminars and workshops led by a variety of teachers in
specialties such as Yoga, Meditation, Massage, Botany and Plant Identification, as well as in African Drumming and Dance, Health related topics and in many
other possible categories. More details at the campground website under "Schedule of Workshops and Events".
