 Summersville is located in the heart of West Virginia and surrounded by the cool and pristine waters which flow from our mountains. These waters provide world class outdoor recretional activities, such as whitewater rafting on the Gauley or New rivers, boating on Summersville Lake, or hiking along the Muddlety Creek Trail. Along the banks of these waters lay beautiful dense hardwood forests, providing the trails, cliffs and game for the dry land adventurer.
