The Mountain Lakes of West Virginia

Close to the pottery shop is Summersville Dam holding back the clear blue water of the Gauley River to create Summersville Lake. This lake is the largest in WV and it offers boating, fishing, camping, scuba diving, rafting, kayaking, trout fishing, and much more. Below the dam hydro power is harvested and the rivers true power is revealed in a raging torrent of pure whitewater delight. The Upper Gauley is the most refreshing and intense whitewater river around. 

Mount Lookout was once a civil war overlook on the confluence of the Meadow River and Gauley River. On the other side of the river you can visit Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park a civil war battle ground with a great view of the Gauley River and lots of hiking to secluded river spots, don't forget your camera.

Fayetteville is home to the New River Gorge Bridge. The New River carves through an ancient canyon rich in history. The high volume whitewater has cut away the mountains revealing hidden cliffs as old as time. The New River is the second oldest river in the world. Be sure to visit the New River Gorge National River Visitors Center for grand view of the New River and its really big bridge, The New River Gorge Bridge.


The Great Outdoors

There are so many things to enjoy in the mountain state. From tranquil bird watching to exciting whitewater. If you like the outdoors then WV is for you. Being a native to these parts and knowing the area like we do gives us a unique chance to share our knowledge with our pottery guests. We have both worked in the tourism and rafting industry for many years and know all the best spots. If you would like to paddle on the water or fish in the creeks for the big one just drop us a line any river any time.
