About Us

WVU Jackson’s Mill is a unique West Virginia tradition: A large, working, well maintained, developed campground facility in a picturesque rural setting.

A special-mission campus of West Virginia University – owned and operated by the WVU Extension Service – Jackson’s Mill represents the historic home of 4-H camping in the United States as site of the first statewide 4-H camp in the nation; today, Jackson’s Mill continues to serve thousands of 4-H’ers each summer and throughout the year.

When not serving as home to West Virginia 4-H, WVU Jackson’s Mill is available for group rental by private and public groups. The facilities make for an excellent conference location and with amenities like on-site dining, ADA accessible facilities, campuswide WiFi, seasonal swimming pool, athletic fields, as well as private, semi-private and cabin-style room options, it’s easy to understand why groups like American Legion Mountaineer Boys State and others like to call WVU Jackson’s Mill home.

Regardless of the audience or group, Jackson’s Mill caters to personal growth and leadership.
