We are happy to announce that we will be reopening the office and store on May 18th. At that time, we will be taking new reservations, and returning calls for new reservations. Please leave a voice mail if we do not answer as we only have one phone line and foresee a high number of calls. 


Tent and RV sites, along with the shower house and public restroom facilities, will be open starting May 21st, to West Virginia Residents. 


All cabins, including Klaer Lodge, will be open starting May 26th, to West Virginia Residents. 


The pavilions, dining hall, swimming area, and playgrounds will remain closed until further notice. Fishing in the pond is still allowed, as long as social distancing requirements can be maintained.
