West Virginia’s Wild & Wonderful State Parks


The State of West Virginia is often regarded for its beauty. An excellent way to observe the diverse flora, fauna, waterfalls and breathtaking vistas is to visit one of West Virginia’s state parks, state forests or recreation areas. The state offers rail trails, several wildlife management areas, seven state forests and 36 state parks and resorts. No matter your location in West Virginia, there should be a park nearby for you to explore.
