Elkins, West Virginia is a cozy, family-friendly city in Randolph County. This community started out as a smattering of farms and was originally known as Leadsville. Its location along the river made it a key place for trading. Elkins even had its own mini-war with Beverly, West Virginia, a nearby community, where neighbor was against neighbor for a while. The city hall was even burned down.
You and your pooch won't have to worry about war in modern-day Elkins, though! Elkins is a quiet place where you and your best furry friend can enjoy some mutts-needed R&R. Farmland makes up a large part of Elkins. Peaceful green spaces are abundant, which makes it the perfect place to bring your dog for a vacation. Plus, there's an animal hospital and vet clinic right in town.
Shortly before Elkins' famous mini-war in the 1880s, the family of one of the city's founders donated nine acres to Elkins. Those nine acres are now Elkins City Park. This family-friendly park only continues to grow, and has all kinds of amenities and activities for your whole family to enjoy -- furry members included!
Pegasus Farm and Campground is a busy home away from home where you and your dog can camp. Or, you can walk some the trails, participate in an RV rally, or even book a family get-together. Whatever you decide to do, you and your wily woofer will pawsitively love everything Elkins has to offer its furry residents and visitors!
