Celebrate Freedom with Your Family....
Go Camping On A Working Farm

According to the West Virginia Division of Tourism, camping is the number one leisure time activity of travelers visiting the Mountain State. Surveys indicate that vacationers prefer camping because it offers families the opportunity to spend precious time being together. The owners of the new Pegasus Farm Campground are banking on these statistics.

At first impression, one could see the Pegasus Farm Campground & Music Park as simply a brand new camping facility ready to accommodate high tech RVs, motor homes, and travel trailers. You won't find hundreds of campers at this Elkins, West Virginia campground, however. The facility offers only 17 large, roomy, full hookup sites and a large, beautiful bathhouse for the tent and pop-up guests staying in the secluded 20-acre tent area.

If you dig a little deeper, though, you'll notice that most of the acreage within the RV area is planted in gardens. There's the Kirby Bean Patch, the Johnson Tomato Field, and a large garden for peppers, squash and cucumbers (as yet unnamed). In the center of the field between the two outdoor music stages (that hosts music on Saturday evenings and seasonal special events), over an acre of tilled land lays waiting for the planting of the Zen garden, a labyrinth of perennials, leading to a classical center. Across the railroad tracks, in the tent area, you'll find the corn, onion, and potato garden . . . and acres and acres of sunflowers planted in rotation to bloom throughout the summer.

Owners Mark and Bonnie Branciaroli have cultivated a business in Randolph County that is part of a new national tourism trend Agritourism. What is Agritourism?

"In simple terms," says Branciaroli "Agritourism is the marriage of tourism and agriculture. Families who have lived for generations in the cities and metro areas do not have the opportunity to experience the process of growing food and eating food that comes from the land. People want a new experience when they travel. They want an escape from the stress of traffic jams, office cubicles and carpooling, and most parents want their children to learn how food is grown, where it comes from. You can experience all that on the Pegasus Farm."

According to national travel industry surveys, travelers are looking for new experiences that strengthen their family relationships. "Agritourism nurtures positive emotions," Branciaroli explained. "It rekindles our emotions by bringing to life memories of spending summers on the grandparents' farms. Most of us have a farm somewhere in our family tree. Visiting a working farm brings back those fond memories."

Located just two miles from downtown Elkins and minutes from the community's Super WalMart the Pegasus Farm setting is ideal. Although the Farm is close to every possible convenience, its location in the center of the Tygart Valley, (which is hugged on both sides by two mountain chains), offers solitude during the day and quiet, star-lit nights. From the center of the campground, you can see the mountains all around you. The southern and northern boundaries of the property are marked with a quiet, clear-water run and the deep waters of Chenoweth Creek, a large creek that empties into the Tygart River. Guests have the option of fishing for smallmouth and rock bass in Chenoweth Creek, or trying their luck in the new pond. On the other side of these waterways are hundreds of acres of pastureland and cornfields.

"Out-of-state guests who have stayed with us say the same thing," said Branciaroli, "that they have not slept so good in a long time. They feel safe here. The campground areas are located at the end of a dead end road and surrounded by water and mountains. No one enters or leaves without us knowing since our home is located at the entrance of the farm."

During the day there's plenty to do on the Farm, in Elkins and the surrounding area. Families can hike or bike the grass maze (shaped like a sunflower), ride the excursion train (the New Tygart Flyer) which boards at the downtown Elkins depot, take in music shows at the farm or in Elkins, or just explore the nearby Monongahela National Forest.

Life on the farm doesn't mean leaving hi tech society behind. If bringing the laptop is a must, wireless broadband is available at each site and throughout the farm.

According to Branciaroli RV sites are available for daily, weekly and monthly rental. A unique school bus (converted for "rustic" RV camping) is also available for rent.

"We are just 35 minutes from I-79, and 3.5 hour drive from the Washington DC/Northern Va metro area," Branciaroli concluded. "Our central location is the key to many happy vacations."
