Important Guest Information During Summer Camping Season

All Visitors Please Note Facility Restrictions

WVU Jackson’s Mill is excited to begin our 98 th year of camping here at our facility!  We are proud of our rich heritage of forming lasting memories through the positive experience people of all ages have by coming to Jackson’s Mill. We are also committed to maintaining our role as a community partner and encourage those in the local community to come to enjoy all that Jackson’s Mill has to offer.

WVU Jackson’s Mill is committed to safety and protection of our youth campers who camp here during the summer season. To offer the safest environment possible, West Virginia University has a strict Youth Protection Policy which is enforced during our WVU-sponsored youth camps. As in years past, we want to encourage members of our community to still enjoy Jackson’s Mill during the warm summer months. Here is some information regarding schedules of closed camps, alternative options, and other information.

Unless otherwise noted, the airstrip across the road from WVU Jackson’s Mill’s Main Campus will be accessible during daylight hours for those wishing to walk/jog, visit, etc. during the dates listed below. 

On all specified dates, all grounds on our main campus (meaning all areas on north side of Jackson Mill Road) will be closed to the public for the entire day unless otherwise specified. This includes: all buildings, grounds, the Jackson’s Mill Heritage Area, along the river bank, and wooded areas.
