I first went to Blackwater Falls in 1964 at the tender age of 2!!! I have returned to this park many many times in the past 48 years, first with my immediate family, then later with my wife and daughter!! As one might imagine this place holds a very special place in my heart and I have so many great tales of adventures had there with my family. I remember being there in 1968 at easter and having it snow friday and saturday making it an adventure we would always remember. Then there were the early morning walks with my late grandfather and seeing deer near our cabin and helping him build a warm fire while he brewed a fresh pot of coffee!! Fast forward and I recently took my mom and dad for a surprise 1 night stay in a cabin. My dad had an appointment at WVU hospital for a follow up to a serious health issue, so I decided to surprise him with a trip to the "cabins". The weather was less than cooperative as it poured down the rain as we drove from Morgantown to Davis and the "falls". Upon arrival, I was so pleased to see that our 4 person cabin (cabin 1) was immaculately clean and looked just the way I remembered it on our previous visits. It was cold and foggy as I gathered the firewood from the storage shed and carried it inside and soon I had a roaring fire heating the main room as my mom heated the soup she had brought with her and my kerosene lanterns were lit and placed on the mantle!! If you want a 5 star place then this is not for you but if you want a clean lovely cabin in the woods then this is the place for you. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom very nice if basic, and the kitchen had all we needed. We sat by the warm fire late into the night before the need to sleep called us to our beds!!! Sadly all too quick our one night visit was over but will not be forgotten any time soon!! The memories of my late relatives and all the wonderful fun we had in this park over the years will go with us all the days of our lives. Make some memories for your family!! No TV , no telephone, just a clean well equipped cabin in the woods. I am proud to be from WV and even prouder to recommend a visit to this gem of my great state!!!
