Important Guest Information During Summer Camping Season

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.

Long-time donor provides lead gift in construction of bridge at WVU Jackson’s Mill

Each year thousands of West Virginia youths and other visitors travel to West Virginia University Jackson’s Mill to participate in 4-H camps where they learn valuable leadership and mentoring skills, while forging lifelong friendships. Part of that journey includes participation in the West Virginia State 4-H Camp Council Circle, a symbolic center of spirit for campers.

For the past century, getting to the Circle has meant traversing along a wooded trail, with no direct access to the area. Through a generous donation of $100,000 from long-time 4-H and Jackson’s Mill supporter, Jack M. Tyree, campers will now travel to the Circle via the Jack M. and Helen S. Tyree Bridge.

“A bridge is a symbol of connections and progress in our lives. At Jackson’s Mill, our young people will build attitude, knowledge, and skill – important bridges with their friends, their community and their future,” Tyree said.

A credit card is now required for all individual room reservations

In preparation for impending upgrades to the WVU Jackson's Mill reservation system, please note that a credit card is now required for all individual room reservations made at Jackson’s Mill, if the room is not being paid for as part of an overall group bill.  

Regrettably, WVU Jackson's Mill is no longer able to accept reservations and then bill counties or other programs for later payments.

If a group, program unit, etc., is paying for the cost of any individual rooms these will be included as part of a master bill in the same procedure as has been used in the past.
