Summerville Lake Retreat RV Park. I did it again!

My extensive campground research pays off.  Since we started our travels we’ve only stayed in what I felt was a bad RV park once and only for one night.  We stayed in a “so so” park only once too.  The rest of the RV parks we’ve stayed in were really nice and this one is really nice.  I do a lot of research when selecting RV parks.  I have to make sure they accept our three pups.  That is the most important.  Then I want to make sure they can handle the size of our big-rig.  I like Pull-in-sites.  I like easy in and easy out.  Then I research the amenities of the park.  We are really not interested in swimming pools so that is not an amenity I care about.  Most of the RV park swimming pools are closed now anyway, due to COVID.

So everyone, guess what???  I picked another winner.

This is our view from our site and what a beautiful view it is.  These are the types of amenities I am interested in.  I like a beautiful view.  I like mountains and lakes.

I have a Sony Camcorder and this is a screenshot of the lake after I zoomed in.  I love the zoom feature on this camera.  This is the same picture as above only zoomed in.

Lots here are large, gravel, and mostly level.  The lawns are well manicured.

Tomorrow I will check out the gift store.  The little building on the right is the check-in building.

There is a working lighthouse on the property.  It’s funny to see a lighthouse in West Virginia.

Located on the cliffs of Summersville Lake, the only working lighthouse in West Virginia is a must-visit. The lighthouse was erected in 2012 at Summersville Retreat and Lighthouse. It is constructed entirely of one-half-inch steel and is open to the public for tours. 

I don’t think we will take a tour.   I’m not going to take the tour and climb to the top because  I don’t think I could climb 122 spiral stairs especially because there is no air-conditioning but most importantly, I don’t think I can climb 122 spiral steps and live to tell about it.

I think this lighthouse is so cool.  My hubby told me he didn’t think the lighthouse would be lit up nightly.  I told the hubby it’s a working lighthouse.  He said he thought it would be too expensive for the RV park to run it.  DAH!  I asked Hubby “how does it feel to always be wrong?”

And again with my Sony camcorder, I got a close up picture.

It’s storming this evening.  The rain is beating hard on the roof of our tin can on wheels.  The wind is blowing.  The trees are swaying.  Birds are really chirping loud outside.  It is thundering so Benji and Bella will be scared.  Hubby, Benji, and Bella are in the bedroom watching TV.  BooBoo and I are watching the livingroom TV.  They don’t offer Cable here but we get some stations using our air antenna.

God Bless, Stay Safe, and Be Kind.
