Summersville and the area surrounding it offer many attractions to visitors.  Even if you are just passing through the scenery is spectacular.  If you are spending some time, there is everything from hot tubs to rock climbing.  The lake, the river,  the mountains, or just simply  the view can't be beat.  Housing is available in many forms.  If a mountain cabin is what you want, they are too numerous to list.  Motels and bed and breakfast places are abundant.  Top notch RV parks and boating as well as rafting on the rivers in the area are also among the attractions.

There is a warning for everyone traveling in the area.  OBEY THE SPEED LIMIT.  Especially on Rt 19 in the towns of Summersville, Oak Hill, and Fayetteville.  On Rt 60 be careful in the towns of Anstead and Gauley Bridge.  Don't get in a hurry and you will be fine.  Slow down and enjoy the scenery.
