We planned on only going to the zoo in Oglebay Park but got there a little bit early so we drove up to the pond. My son was so excited when he saw the paddleboats. We also walked over to the playground and mini golf area. Both places are very clean and well kept. After visiting the zoo we did... More

My husband and I recently stayed the week with our 3 year old and 5 year old grandchildren in one of the two bedroom cabins. While I will admit I have stayed in nicer places for the money, (this is why a 4 star review instead of a 5) the variety and quality of family friendly activities was fantastic. We... More

Not many cities have such a beautiful facility and park as Wheeling has here. Many different activities to do and four beautiful golf courses to choose from.

tons of paved trails to walk through the area on. The outdoor pool + tennis was nice and everyone we encountered made the trip better. Not a grumpy/surly person to be found anywhere.

Our family rented a 6 bedroom cabin for our reunion. Lots of room and a big kitchen. Cabin was clean. Lots of activities to do around the park including swimming, boating, golfing, visiting the zoo, or just going for a walk. We saw quite a few deer during our walk. Parking got to be a bit tricky as we shared... More

The park itself is free to access and there is a lot of free parking around. I would call ahead before attending any activities as we found the some were cancelled but no updates posted. A lot to do here though, including swimming, skiing, golf, riding, woodland and paved walks. There is a variety of shops and restaurants as well.... More

Our company picnic was being held at the levinson picnic shelter in Oglebay park. The shelter was clean, nice location and well maintained. The grounds of the park are manicured and you can tell a considerable amount of time goes into maintence there. The park is quite large with walking paths winding throughout connecting everything. It can be a lot... More

I want to start by saying the outside beauty here is amazing! Rolling hills, beautiful flowers ect. The free attractions, paddle boats, mini golf pass the time. The outdoor pool closes early and is over crowded. The indoor pool closed at 10 pm and so did the bar on the night of the fireworks which ended at 9:30. The bar... More
