The City of Summersville, WV is located in the heart of West Virginia and surrounded by the cool and pristine waters
flowing from our mountains.
These waters provide world class outdoor recreational 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.
Whether you enjoy the slower pace of life, or the fast paced fun, our Mountain Water Playground will wash away your reality!
