about Peterkin

Nestled in a valley near historic Romney, West Virginia, Peterkin Camp and Conference Center boasts 1,400 acres of unsurpassed natural beauty, with clean mountain streams and miles of hiking trails. Peterkin offers a refuge of serenity amid the stress and hectic pace of our everyday lives, a place that encourages us to relax and reconnect with nature by enjoying outdoor activities such as trout fishing, hiking, swimming and tennis. The quiet wooded coves are perfect for quiet times of meditation and relaxation. Taking a ‘time out’ at Peterkin is sure to bring regeneration to body, mind and spirit. 

Peterkin offers comfortable accommodations and excellent recreational opportunities for all ages.  Summer camps are available for youth, adults and families.  Peterkin is also a marvelous location for meetings and retreats of religious and non-profit groups, regardless of race, sex or denominational preference. Accomodations are available for more than 175 people year round and for more than 200 in warmer months.

Our main lodge, Gravatt Hall, easily accommodates 31 individuals in modern sleeping rooms with a shared bathroom.  Each room has individually controlled heat and will sleep up to four people in comfort.

The other lodges on the site comfortably accommodate 33-35 people, with bedrooms for 4-8, which connect to a lovely central Great Room that is perfect for socializing.
