Located in Weston, West Virginia, WVU Jackson’s Mill offers guests, event attendees and conference-goers a heritage-based lodging experience with all the amenities.


A special-mission campus of West Virginia University – owned and operated by the WVU Extension Service – WVU Jackson’s Mill represents the historic home of West Virginia 4-H camping in the United States as the site of the first statewide 4-H camp in the nation. Today, Jackson’s Mill continues to serve thousands of 4-H’ers each summer and throughout the year. The historic location is also home to the West Virginia Fire Academy, a one-of-a-kind training facility for volunteer and professional firefighters from around the state and across the country. 

When not serving as home to West Virginia 4-H, WVU Jackson’s Mill is available for group rental by private and public groups. The facilities make for an excellent conference location and with amenities like on-site dining, ADA accessible facilities, campus wide Wi-Fi, seasonal swimming pool and athletic fields as well as private, semi-private and cabin-style room options, it’s easy to understand why groups like American Legion Mountaineer Boys State and others like to call WVU Jackson’s Mill home.
