New River Gorge Camping & Cabin Rental

Camping at Cantrell's Basecamp in Fayetteville WV

The base camp, located on Gatewood Road, is a ten acre campground.  This base camp is the closest base camp, in the industry, to the Lower New River “put-in” area at Cunard.  It is also only minutes away from some of the fav’ climbing spots in the area and minutes from the New River Gorge Bridge.  It is home to our popular onsite Grill & Pub, where we host live entertainment on Friday and Saturday night throughout the spring and summer rafting season (April-October).  The grill is popular for their homemade stuffed rolls and specialty sauces and well known for the best live bands in the region. There is a large bathhouse that is immaculate!  The bathhouse also has a coin-operated laundry facility for your convenience.

Tent & RV Camping Options

All of the tent sites, RV sites and cabins are within easy walking distance to the bathhouse and the grill & pub. This base camp has fresh coffee available every morning on the “Kitchen” deck.  We serve our popular hot country breakfast and Home cooked Dinners on the “Kitchen” deck of this base camp.
