CHARLESTON, WV — The West Virginia Capital Access Program (WVCAP) approved a loan of $75,000 for Johnny B’s Campground, LLC, a campground in Randolph County.
The campsite serves RVs, travel trailers, primitive camping sites and tent camping sites and sits on the first 4-H site in the world. The funding will support site improvements providing a quality recreation experience to locals and visitors to the rural regions of Route 219 South between Elkins and the Snowshoe Resort.
“Through the WVCAP initiative, West Virginia’s small enterprises are empowered to flourish within our state’s scenic landscapes,” said Andy Zulauf, Executive Director at the West Virginia Jobs Investment Trust (WVJIT). “This program serves as a gateway for West Virginian entrepreneurs to readily acquire the financial backing essential for propelling their businesses towards greater horizons.”
