Camp Beckwith 4-H Camp, now Fayette County Park, was established in 1925 at Beckwith, WV, in Fayette County, 8.5 miles northwest of Fayetteville, WV. Located on 30 acres adjacent to Laurel Creek, the site for the camp was originally donated to the Fayette County 4-H Club by Loop Creek Collieries, one of the region's primary coal-mining concerns.

The park includes six cabins, a recreation hall, an amphitheater, eight picnic shelters, several recreation fields, a hiking trail, two short walking trails, and an Olympic-sized public swimming pool and wading pool. The park is primarily a day-use facility, though its cabins may be rented for the use of non-profit organizations.

Wheelchair access has been provided in many park picnic areas and shelters and at the pool and bath house. The park's summer hours are from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. Pets and alcohol are prohibited in the park.
