Drove up to the park from Beckley, and were glad we did. Went in the early morning and took one of the rim trails for a couple of miles. Incredible views of the mist filled gorge all along the way. Also a number of deer along the trail. As the day progressed, the mist lifted and the full glory of... More

Well-marked easy-walking trails with awesome views. Wish the caves would re-open, but enjoyed other parts of nature. Kids also enjoyed the playground & we spotted some deer. There was a rumor that a bear seen that day, but couldn't confirm. Great place for locals & visitors to enjoy. As a former Beckley resident, it's always nice going back.

This a good park with some great scenery. Some of the bathrooms could use some updating. When I was there the grass had not been cut in weeks.

Made a brief stop on my way west to Charleston. It's less than a15 drive off the interstate. The park ranger was helpful. Small gift shop. Well illustrated flyers on the trails nearby. It's a few minutes walk on a flat stone trail to see an amazing view of the gorge. Watch for little skinks running by on the path.... More

This was a perfect time to view the mountains in their spring splendor,not to mention the outdoor amphitheater with the Hatfield and McCoy outdoor drama or Honey in the Rock playing on alternate nights beginning in June

We enjoyed the Main Overlook and the playground. Unfortunately the cave closest to the playground was closed but the kids 6 & 8 loved the adventure there and back! We will definitely go again and bring a picnic lunch with us! We saw a small herd of deer on our way out of the park...beautiful!

We went for a Saturday drive and went to Grandview. I had never been there before even though I only live about 45 minutes away. It was a really nice park. The overlook was fantastic. The view was something that is hard to put into words. It really shows off the West Virginia beauty. We plan to go back once... More

State or National Park, no camping permitted, no restaurants, they have a few picnic shelters, picnic tables and play grounds for the kids. Beautiful views from the overlooks. Great hiking and some caves. Enjoy !
