Nestled along the Elk River, the communities of Sutton and Gassaway evoke the small town charm and community spirit indicative of rural West Virginia. Its location in the heart of West Virginia offers Braxton County residents and businesses many recreational, social, and cultural opportunities. Burnsville Lake and Sutton Lake are major recreational facilities offering marinas, boat launches, beaches, and camping areas. There are more than 500 camping sites in the county and more than 30,000 acres of wildlife management areas offering hunting and fishing opportunities. Plans are underway for the construction of a championship 18-hole golf course in Flatwoods. Shopping, an important recreational activity by many, gives Braxton County a definite edge. Some of the best recreational shopping in the state can be found at the Flatwoods Factory Outlet Mall, home to such designer shops as Tommy Hilfiger, Jones of New York, and the Shops of the Greenbrier, West Virginia's only five-star resort.
