Great State Park

Very large state park with many, many things to do and see. picnic tables available. There are a lot of trials to walk and the Water Falls is very picturesque.

Pristine beauty. West Virginia inescapably has some of the most beautiful natural sites to see for a traveller. I highly recommend the falls.

I've been here multiple times and it never gets old. The falls are absolutely beautiful, and are really easy to get to. The rest of the park is nice as well, although I've never camped in the park.

I loved the fact that it was so easy to get to the falls. There are two ways to see them. There are viewpoints on both sides of the river and one of them is high above the falls, while the other one gets you right in front of the falls.

Great place to visit! The natural beauty is breath taking. Whether the falls are frozen or thawed, it's worth a visit.

My mother is from Canaan valley and we still own our old family home in Davis so this is like home to me. I have loved Blackwater Falls my whole life. Do not miss this. Make sure to visit the cute gift shop and snack bar also. We usually walk down the stairs to the falls but come back up... More

´Tis a grand day. We have been visiting Blackwater Falls State Park for many, many years. We greatly enjoy this Mountaineer Gem. Visits to the falls (at several viewpoints) is required. Today, we want to see the new sled park. We know that the sled (carpet,) the special lift is 1400 feet long, the longest in North East U.S. -... More

First time visitor to this part of the state. Was expecting a pleasant stay, but it turned out to be a wonderful stay. Lodge was very clean and staff were all nice. The restaurant was very good even if somewhat pricey. Lots of things to see in the area, and the sledding slope would be fabulous for kids. A warm... More
