This park's infrastructure is worn, but kept clean and serviceable. Don't let that get in the way of enjoying this beautiful area of the country! It's well worth the trip. The lodge and restaurants close on October 30, so plan now for next year. Enjoy!

I have been stopping by this state park for years. Fall is by far the most beautiful time but really, the view from the lookout area by the golf house is gorgeous any time of year. The gift shop by the tram is terrific, especially the area featuring the craftsmanship of WV artisans.

The fall foliage is the main reason to stay in this hotel. However, there is a lot of renovations being done at this time. The view outside our window was of heavy equipment and at 9 AM there were 2 workers running the loud machines. They moved the machines the following day but the scaffolding was still there. Our class... More

The park is big and offers a lot of breathtaking views along the drive within the park. We came across a classic car show too.

We stayed at the campground over the long Labor Day weekend 2016. Beautiful campground, but the best sites are certainly electric only. The primitive sites are basically in an open field. Most of the full hook up sites are small for big trailers. But most of the electric only sites are large & wooded. Biggest problem. Only one shower/bathroom building... More

Beautiful park with some beautiful views. Be prepared to pull over and stop a lot as there are many nice spots you want to take a picture. If your in the area it's definitely a must see stop.

A stranger in an airport saw me wearing an Amtrak hat and recommended we take the train someday to West Virginia and check out Pipestem Resort State Park. Several years later we are here doing just that. This is a fantastic place! Huge, beautiful outdoor pool, small indoor pool, sprawling but beautifully designed lodge with nooks and crannies and vast... More

I stayed in the campground July 21 thru July 24, 2016. It is a beautiful campground with nice amenities. We travel from Ohio every year to go there. Sometimes we camp, other times we stay in the lodge. This year we noticed hardly any enforcement of park rules in the campground. Cars were parking on the grass and damaging the... More

What a great stop at the end of our WV vacation. Stopping here was a last minute decision, but we were so glad that we did. The grounds were so clean and all the employees were so friendly. The gift shop was huge and the air conditioning felt so good in there. Riding on the gondola was what tempted us... More
