The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve is the fourth Boy Scout of American High Adventure Base. In the tradition of Philmont Ranch in New Mexico, Florida Sea Base, and Northern Tier in Minnesota, the Summit provides Scouts the opportunity to experience exciting and intense outdoor adventures. As stated on The Summit’s website, “The Summit takes kids to the limits of what they think they can do, and then goes further. The Summit is more than just a place for Scouts; it’s Scouting’s next step.” Check out The Summit at

This new permanent home of the National Scout Jamboree beginning in 2013 is located just 11 miles south of the Fayetteville, West Virginia, the New River Gorge, and the New River National River. You don’t want to miss out on Fayetteville when you travel to The Summit.

Fayetteville is a great stop along the way for Scouts going to or from and the perfect location for families to base when their Scouts are attending events at The Summit.  A vibrant shopping district, fantastic restaurants, Civil War history, windows to browse with lots to buy, an in-season farmer’s market, a local art and music scene, and a lovely town park are just part of Fayetteville’s charm. The town is surrounded by great places to stay; hotels near the New River Gorge Bridge, nearby adventure resorts; tucked away cabins, camping and RV parks, and cozy bed and breakfasts.  Situated on the edge of the New River Gorge, Fayetteville is the gateway to outdoor adventure. World-class whitewater rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing, an extensive system of hiking trails, fishing, biplane rides, parachuting, and much more are located within five minutes of the town. It is designated one of America’s coolest small towns for good reasons.

You can come to relax, come to replenish, or come to experience the rush of outdoor adventures. Recreation, dining, shopping, history, art, culture, people … Fayetteville has it all. Come and find out what’s so cool!
