Grandchildren love the Good Zoo and love the Festival of Lights during Christmas Holidays. Like everything about the park.

I grew up in the Wheeling area and my family rented a cabin each summer for a week. My wife and I were married in Bethany, and held our reception at Wilson Lodge. Oglebay Park is a bargain year round, but I really enjoyed spending Thanksgiving there two years ago. Christmas decorations and the light displays are in full swing,... More

Took the kids for a trip to see the Christmas- Holiday lights. They enjoyed them very much and asked if we could go again next year

Having heard about Oglebay's Festival of Lights for years, our family finally decided to make the 90 minute drive to see it. Our family (ages 12-87) were all underwhelmed by the light display. It is certainly nowhere near worth the $20 "suggested donation." If you are already staying at or near Oglebay, by all means, see the Festival of lights.... More

Beautiful property that is part city park, part state park and part golf resort. It has more to offer than expected on a large, hilly estate that feels like many smaller parks rolled into one.

So many things to do for adults and kids. Holiday time in the winter one of the, if not the best, light display in the country.

This city park is beyond compare. It is rustic, hilly and you can see for miles from the Lodge. I've gone there for 60 years and have found no city park that compares.

Have rented cabins there yearly for 45 years. Oglebay has always been part of my life, from attending Day Camp in the 1950's to supporting the Mansion Museum today. A beautiful place to just. "Be."

One of the largest city parks in America, with 3 regular golf courses and one par three course, acres and acres of beautiful landscape and many cabins as well as the lodge, Oglebay is a marvelous location for a refreshing, quiet getaway.
