About Us

Less than half an hour from West Virginia's Capitol Charleston, yet a world away, Bear Cave Camp is a hidden treasure located on 60 forested acres in West Virginia's Lincoln County holler.  We are conveniently located along a rarely traveled 2-way 1-lane paved public road that overlooks many homesteads with livestock that dot Tornado's back roads.  Whether you seek a back-to-nature family escape with Fido, a solitary sojourn, a team building adventure,  or an overnight or a day time escape, Bear Cave Camp is your haven for creating memories.
