Spent two night in 3 bedroom cabin and was very pleased how well maintained it was. Was not expecting the up to date kitchen and satellite tv. Hiking trails are well maintained and the pool and grounds well kept. Brett McMillan and his staff are great.

My family drove through Bluestone on our way from New River Gorge to Pipestem. The road winds back off of the main road, and you'll almost feel like you're lost. There is a small visitor's center, but it had just closed when we arrived. There are some nice views to take in, and there are places to picnic. I read... More

This is a visit to the spot where the Bluestone River flowing out of East River Mountain in Southwestern Virginia near the Tennessee Border joins up with the New River flowing from North Carolina near the Atlantic Ocean.

On the positive side the cabin was clean and the atmosphere of the park was nice. The Park office staff was nice and helpful. Renting a pontoon boat at the nearby marina was a highlight of our stay. However, the cabin is what ruined it for us. We stayed in cabin #4. The cabins are not air conditioned and I... More

The lake- formed by the dam, is awesome. Rent a fishing boat (seats 4) and go exploring. You can fish or go tubing as well. A great way to get up close and personal to this part of the state.

Bluestone park is tucked away in Southern West Virginia near a little town called Hinton. They offer a beautiful outdoor pool in the summer with breath taking views of the mountains. They have cute picnic areas and camping facilities. Pack a picnic and head to your local state park!
