We stayed at the cabins. They are clean and provide dishes and kitchen accessories. The tram ride down the gorge never fails to excite everyone. Fishing along the river, horseback riding, hiking to see the beautiful overlooks, swimming in the pools, are big hits for the kids and adults. There are 2 golf courses and a club house. There is...

I wanted to take my girlfriend away for her birthday weekend and I chose Pipestem. The lodge was adequate. I usually stay at Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express in my work travel. That amounts to about 200 nights a year. The Pipestem lodge was not up to that level but was adequate. The desk staff was VERY nice and... More

We planned a long weekend of camping at Pipestem, but we underestimated the number of recreation options. We could have easily stayed a week and had plenty to do at the park and surrounding area. Drawbacks: campground is clean and well-managed but sites are a little close together (typical state/national park layout). No hookup sites have almost no shade, electric... More

My wife and I travel from FL each year for a "Jones" family reunion at Pipestem State park. The surounding country is simply beautiful the park is awesome. The lodge could use a little face lift which I hear is in the mix. But who spends time inside the lodge anyway!!

We did the tram and minature golf. The tram was ok but we enjoyed it. The minature golf course was a little dated and needs some work but we had fun

Perfect, simply perfect whether you are spending a day or a week at the park. Not only is there the natural beauty but you have many recreation opportunities (check their website for a full list) including a ride on a tram to the bottom of the gorge where you will encounter the Bluestone river. Note: there is a senior citizen... More

The Pipestem Resort is a golfing and all-around family state park facility that is well worth the trip through winding back country roads. I was not aware that states actually funded golfing resorts but this one is well-maintained, offers a huge variety of activities for families and has 2 great golf courses. It offers nightly lodging and a variety of... More

Also a lake a tram ride down the gorge. Two restaurants and many many hiking trails. Activities too numerous to mention. Great stay we go... More

This is a great park. Took the tram down and went fishing in the Bluestone river. Caught a bunch of fish. Exciting and beautiful. Tram was nice as well as the staff that ran it. Hiked to the lake and fished their as well. Not as much luck, but enjoyed our time there. The pool is nice and the kids... More
