ROANOKE, Va. – AEP’s Camp Kilowatt will remain closed for the remainder of 2022 due to continued COVID-19 restrictions and planned upgrades.

Camp Kilowatt has been closed the last two seasons due to concerns for the spread of the coronavirus.  The decision was made recently to continue that ban through the 2022 season. 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.

In addition to coronavirus concerns, AEP is planning to make upgrades to facilities, including the existing bath house.

“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. “But once the planned upgrades are complete, we believe the camp will make it more enjoyable for visitors.”
