Blackwater Falls State Park
The Blackwater River features a deep canyon and a beautiful, densely wooded park. Accommodations include a 54-room lodge perched on the canyon rim, 26 modern cabins and a 65-site campground (32 campsites with electric hookups).
Love this place...Very Beautiful river with very beautiful surroundings...very good trout fishing also...THe wildlife is also excellent, i would reccomend anyone that visits West Virginia to put this very high upon their places to see.
My wife and I came to the September Fest week this year. The Lodge staff and the Park ranger were just great! we had great fun. The meals were outstanding and the restaurant staff and Chef Gil were especially good. we will be back for sure
BEAUTIFUL SCENERY, BUT THE RESTAURANT IS ONE OF THE WORST I HAVE EXPERIENCED
WAIT STAFF IS SO SLOW, SLOW, SLOW. OUR WAITRESS NEVER SMILED DURING THE ENTIRE DINNER, PART OF WHICH WAS SERVED COLD [STEAMED VEGETABLES]. FOOD IS BLAND, AND STEAK IS VERY THIN, ABOUT 1/4 INCH.
FRONT DESK STAFF NOT VERY FRIENDLY. APPARENTLY PEOPLE WHO SMILE ARE NOT HIRED BY THE MANAGEMENT OF THIS PARK--IT IS A SHAME BECAUSE THIS IS TRULY A GORGEOUS PARK.

swimming , you have enough ground you could built an outdoor swimming smilar to Canaan Valley. I believe that the lack of a swimming facility [outdoor] discourages people from coming although you have established reciprocity with Canaan Valley. I still love the park
Love this place and have visited it every year since 1999 ! Great place for family's and anyone who likes the quiet peaceful setting of the great outdoors. The lodge which is nestled in the trees and has several overlook sites at the canyon below is our favorite place to stay. I'll agree that the restaurant isn't much to be desired but the rest of the lodge is great. Be sure to request "canyon side" for the best views while staying there. It is nice to take the long walk down to look @ the Falls for which this area is famous and you will be sure to come home with some amazing pictures !!
I'll admit it. I'm a native of West Virginia, and have been all over the state. I've also been to many national parks throughout the U.S. My final analysis? Blackwater Falls deserves to be a national park. The beauty of the park comes from the unmarred beauty of Blackwater Canyon... no houses, no roads, just trees. The canyon is in ownership with Blackwater Falls State Park & the Monongahela National Forest. Unfortunately, Allegheny Wood Products purchased a piece of this canyon a few years back, and is trying to put a logging road right through the view. That could change my review. Anyway, Blackwater Falls is beautiful, and not far from a few ski resorts. Also, the town of Thomas, WV, closest to the park, shouldn't be missed if you visit.
Black Bear is a hidden gem. It is an incredible year round resort with a community feel in the wilderness.
