We only live minutes from Grandview but it is always one of our family favorite places to go. My wife and I actually got married at the overlook. Gorgeous views, nice peaceful trails with some great scenery. Nice play area for the kids. Good places to cook out or picnic. The outdoor amphitheater is a super fun thing for everyone... More

This is primarily a day use park with playgrounds, hiking trails, picnic areas, and restrooms. The Grand Views are breathtaking. The night brings outdoor historical dramas such as Hatfields & McCoys and Honey in the Rock. A pre ordered dinner is available. It can get cool at night in the WV mountains so take jackets & blankets. Restrooms are throught... More

Lovely State Park. There is an amphitheater but of course its seasonal. They have many trails from beginners to the more advanced hiker, playground, basket and volley ball courts but the main reason for visiting is the beautiful overlook. Anytime of of year the view is breathtaking but i recommend the fall.

I'm local & this place never fails to astound me. Breathtaking in any season, the main overlook is spectacular in the fall. The light is good for photos until evening. Misty mornings are awesome as the mountaintops and river emerge from the clouds. My favorite trail is Castle Rock which travels a bench just below the cliffs. It is narrow... More

the natural beauty here is amazing to see. It is gorgeous to look at and take in. I love going here with family and friends for cookouts and picnics. If you visit southern WV you need to stop in and enjoy nature at its finest!

This is a great place to visit and spend a little time. I'm usually here in October, training at the National Mine Academy, and this is one of my favorite spots. The leaves this time of the year are beautiful...it's quite and a great place to visit and enjoy nature at her best!

My husband and I were traveling I 64 on our way to Louisville KY and decided on a lark to take the exit for this National Park. The views are incredible and not to be missed. The main gorge overlook is only a six mile drive from the interstate highway. My husband can't walk far and the walk to the... More

This park is quiet and has lots to see. It has many trails and beautiful views. It is a great place to grab some charcoal and grill something quick and enjoy the majestic view of the New River
