Tygart Lake State Park to open Adventure Lake attraction


​​CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Gov. Jim Justice announced that Tygart Lake State Park will open a new Adventure Lake for park visitors to enjoy. 

Justice and representatives from West Virginia State Parks will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 18 to mark the official grand opening of the Adventure Lake, according to a press release. 

“Exciting things are happening at our state parks and the new Adventure Lake at Tygart is going to make an already special place even more attractive to folks looking for somewhere to take their families,” Justice said. “Summer vacation is right around the corner for so many and now we have this wonderful addition to this park. Whether you live here in West Virginia or you’re a visitor to our great state, it’s a great time to visit West Virginia State Parks. I’m excited beyond belief to cut the ribbon on this exciting new addition to one of our incredible state parks.” 

The Adventure Lake, made possible by a partnership between the West Virginia State Parks system and ACE Adventure Resort, will feature 25 slides, obstacles and other inflatables, as well as a sandy beach area with lounge chairs, the release explains. The lake has capacity limits and day-of tickets will be limited, so guests are encouraged to book reservations in advance.
