Camp Sucklick on The Greenbrier

August 25, 2020

Beaver BendBeaver BendEvening on The Greeenbrier River in West Virginia Lynn and I have been spending time at our camp house on the Greenbrier River, the perfect spot to stay away from crowds.  It’s a wonderful place for appreciating nature and finding inspiration for our art.   We take daily walks and have enjoyed the respite that is so hard to capture during “normal times” when the demands of work keep us all so busy.  The extra days at the camp house also have given us time to discover unintended projects, like needed repairs to the porch and the roof.  We now have a good idea of what it’s like to be featured in one of those home improvement shows on HGTV!

How did Camp Sucklick get its name? Our property includes an island on the river and the island's name on the property map is Sucklick Island. When we first bought this property with our friend Mack Miles in 1993, we opened a joint checking account to use while we were fixing up the camp. It was fun to open up the checking account at the bank. You might imagine the looks we got when we said we wanted the account to be Camp Sucklick.
