Plan a visit at a WV state park when you need a getaway with your animal companion


With hundreds of miles of trails and dozens of mountain streams to splash in, West Virginia’s state parks and forests are a great place to visit when you’re traveling with your pet. Many of our parks and forests offer pet-friendly cabins, cottages and lodge rooms. Pet-friendly accommodations are popular, so call before you visit to make sure lodging is available. Here are seven parks to visit with your pet.

Plan your state park or forest trip around some of your pet’s favorite activities.
Does your dog love water? He’ll be in heaven at Beech Fork State Park with its 720-acre lake and lakefront campsites. At North Bend State Park, you and your pet can enjoy long walks on the adjacent North Bend Rail Trail. Plan a stay at the newly updated lodge or book a pet-friendly cabin.
