ROANOKE, Va. – AEP’s Camp Kilowatt will remain closed for the remainder of 2021 due to continued COVID-19 restrictions.

Camp Kilowatt will remain closed in 2021. 

Located on Smith Mountain Lake in Union Hall, Va., the cost-free campsite usually serves as a place of recreation and relaxation for current and retired AEP employees, their friends and family.

Concerns for the spread of the coronavirus prevented the camp from opening in 2020. The decision was made recently to continue that ban through the 2021 season.

“We realize that for many Camp Kilowatt is part of their summer vacation plans and we understand the disappointment this decision brings for those that utilize the campground each year,” said Mark McGlothlin, who oversees activities at the camp. “The health and safety of our employees and their families is our highest priority as we continue taking all necessary precautions to help reduce the spread of the virus.”

    I think this is just an excuse not to have to worry about maintaining the campground. Every other campground in the state is open and COVID doesn’t seem to be a problem at any of them!
