Pegasus Farm Campground
Reviewed September 3, 2010

I camped with friends at the Pegasus farm at the end of August for their yearly music festival. This is the 2nd time I've been to the festival but the first time I've camped. More than a working farm, Pegasus Farm is more like a valley garden vista.

You actually drive through a barn to get to the camping areas. We set up 3 larger tents and one small tent in their "pine tree forest." Bordering the edge of our site on one side were wildflowers (which were taller than me) blooming in bright purples and covered with butterflies. On the other edge was a creek and a massive cornfield.

The owners have planted fields of sunflowers and a public garden --the vegetables are available to campers. There's also 2 pretty little bath houses, one for ladies and one for gents, that are super clean with 4 shower & toilet stalls, colorful fans and walls.

In August, this area of WV is still cold at night. The temp fell below 50 one night so bring wool blankets and sweaters even in the summer. The whole place is very peaceful and dripping with flowers! You might also see a horse or hear the sounds of mandolin playing from the front porch of the residents. I'll definitely be back!!!!!!!!

Judy and I arrived at Pegsus Farm on the first of May and left on the 26th of August. Our experience at Pegsus Farm was the best time of our lives.
The service was excellent, the campground was groomed, clean, the staff was friendly, Flowers & shrubery were beautiful, great entertainment, and quiet.
Mark, Bonnie, Leaf , Christy and Dale was the greatest friends you will meet.
Pegsus farm is pet friendly.
Mark and Bonnie have limited extended stay site and Mark was gracious to allow us to have one.
Some times we make aquaintences but when you can make friends that is special.
The Campground was in the city of Elkins but you could not tell that you were in a city. It was quiet and at night he fireflys and stars were beautiful.
You must visit Pegsus Farm Campground if you are in the area, we will return next year.
Thanks Mark, Bonnie, Leaf, Christy and Dale for a wonderful experience.

We tent camped at this farm for the Highland Jam and had such a wonderful experience. The views were breathtaking and the owners and staff were gracious and accommodating. Our pine forest campsite was secluded and peaceful with a beautiful mountain vista. The bath house is the nicest I have ever seen: huge showers with changing area, clean toilet stalls with pendant lights, pretty sink faucets. Those little touches go a long way. The music was really enjoyable and there is an entire field surrounded by sunflowers to serve as the dance floor. Magical. Would definitely camp here again and again.

This place is TERRIBLE!!!!!

Needed a place to stay in the middle of a 6 hour camper trip to Virginia due to our car breaking down. Called and spoke with them, they told us the price and said they would meet us at Walmart instead of us driving there (strange). We told them we were very hungry after being broken down for hours and needed to eat. They said they understood and we said we would call them after we at dinner to meet.

After our 45 minute dinner at Applebee's we called them and the guy said he was waiting for us at Walmart and we never showed (very strange considering we didn't call to confirm we were coming yet). The guy then went on to say that they were closing and locking their gates at 10pm and that he didn't want to meet us (what kind of campground locks their campers in?). We were shocked and didn't know what to do with a camper and a large dog for the night - in all our years we never heard of something so absurd as this place.

So we called back and told them we had no place to go and they never told us anything about 10pm curfew, he said he was thinking about opening the gates up but decided he didn't like our tone. I called back and told them that they would get bad reviews, then I heard the lady screaming in the background telling the guy to hang up the phone.

We spent the next 2 hours trying to figure out where to stay and finally found a hotel that accepted pets and had a large parking lot for our camper. We paid 3x as much as the Pegasus campground for the hotel with no regrets. We will never forget these jerks.

Stayed at this incredible spot while visiting a friend who was camping there and stumbled into a connection with some of the warmest/kindest people I have ever met. Mark and Bonnie have created a spirit-filled outdoor sanctuary for friends to find themselves and renew their weary spirits. Within 10 minutes of arriving you find yourself trying to find finagle a way to return and stay longer or even stay permanently! Make sure to include a stop to visit Pegasus on your way through West Virginia - you'll never forget it.

I camped at Pegasus Farms on my way across the US, and this was by far my favorite stop. Mark and Bonnie go out of their way to make your stay more comfortable. You feel like you're a part of the family - Mark even helped me fix my car when my battery died! The campgrounds are well-maintained and there's plenty to do in the area.

We stayed in our RV at Pegasus and were extremely happy with the location and loved Mark and Bonnie, the campground' s owners. Such a beautiful leafy place, we stayed a day longer than we meant to as it was so nice, would have stayed longer but had to get to New York by a particular day. Mark even hooked us up for a flight in a light aircraft to take in the views of this spectacular area. Thoroughly recommend staying here.
