Oglebay is beautiful at this time of year. We were there for a family weekend. Our children loved the paddle boating, playground, and miniature golf. The grounds are kept up beautifully, especially all the flowers everywhere. A wonderful day to spend a few hours before the wedding.

Beautiful well manicured park with a lot to do. Park your car and walk the many trails. You will see wildlife, beautiful flowers and get a good workout climbing up and down the hills.

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
