MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Monongalia County Parks and Recreation held it’s grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony for Camp Muffly’s brand new pool facility.

Ribbon cutting ceremony for Camp Muffly new pool.

Officials said this new pool facility wouldn’t have been possible without the Monongalia County Parks, Trails and Recreation levy passing and being renewed.

The pool opened during 4-H camp and campers got to enjoy a pool day with free pizza provided by Healthy Kids Inc. They also had a Kona Ice truck with a shaved ice treat, and Target donated various pool items that each camper got to choose from to take home.

The Camp Muffly Pool is open to the public and everyone daily from noon to 5 p.m.

Pool admission costs:

  • Kids 3 and under – Free
  • Ages 4-12 – $3.25
  • Ages 13-17 – $3.75
  • Adults – $4.00

Pool season passes and pool parties are available on their website.

The Camp Muffly prides itself as a cheap fun place anyone can go, not only 4-H members, and have a great time in the great outdoors.

“Just to have things that people can afford is one of the big things with the Monongalia County Commission and our parks department, so someplace people can go and not spend a lot of money and just have fun being outside and together with their families means a lot,” said Amy Hettick, the Camp Muffly Park superintendent.
