Serenity at its best!

We camped for two nights in the Holly River State Park. The lots were spacious, woodsy, & near rippling streams. The area was very quiet, clean, and the rest room and shower... read more

We camped for two nights in the Holly River State Park. The lots were spacious, woodsy, & near rippling streams. The area was very quiet, clean, and the rest room and shower facilities were more than adequate for an older campground. The price was right, too, esp. for seniors. They have a full service restaurant on the grounds with delicious... More

We have stayed at Holly River State Park many, many times in the past 14 years. I have never done a review because I really don't want to let the cat out of the bag, but it's really unfair to not review it! The cabins, while they are standard and nothing fancy, are very nice. The hiking is awesome and... More

Holly River is in the middle of nowhere....That's the purpose. Little or NO cell service just nature at it's best. Large campsites with electric and updated shower/restroom facilities. They also have cabins nestled at the far end of the park. Have also stayed there and enjoyed the tranquility. For a taste of home, the lodge office also houses a fantastic... More

Holly River was a beautiful side trip for our fall leaf-peeping trip down through W. Va. It has a glorious array of colors. We ran into a couple of the rangers who were extremely helpful and pointed out a fantastic short hike down to some waterfalls and a natural chute on the stream. There is clearly a lot of tree...

I love Holly River! We usually visit in the off season when the restuarant is closed, so it was a real treat to be in the area during peak season-we got to eat and it was worth the wait. Delicious food and great prices. This was our first trip back since Sandy and we were really worried about what we... More

Our hiking options were seriously limited by the significant tree damage caused by heavy snowfall from Hurricane Sandy last fall. Power was restored to the park only a few weeks ago, and telephone service is just now being repaired. But the setting is beautiful, and the cabins are open (although not the restaurant).

...easy access for travelers to make a true connection with nature! The drive is short but once there the part does in fact take over.

This park is really located up a hollar among the Wv Hills. Its a good place for some quiet time. The Ranger was very nice. The pool is a lil cool, hiking is awesome. I really enjoy the peace and quietness this place has to offer.

The drive from Webster Springs to Holly River State Park was breathtaking with the Fall foilage in full color. The restaurant inside the park (can't remember if it had a different name), was really awesome. Highly recommend driving this beautiful county.

If you love being in the woods, you must stay here! My husband & I stayed in the cabins & it was amazing. Built of log and stone by the CCC in the late 1930's, they were immaculate and cozy. We fell asleep in the comfy bed listening to the river and awoke to deer grazing out front. Heath Miles,... More
