MY FAVORITE STATE PARK. Like honestly I love this place so much I grew up 40 minutes away from here and would always go here multiple times a week just to explore and be in the area. Its a must in West Virginia!

Beautiful area. Was here in September mid-week. There are beautiful hikes. There were a few that we essentially were on the trail alone or very few other hikers. The actual blackwater falls area was busy as this is a short walk (with steps) and likely the most popular. The main lodge which we only stopped in to visit the gift shop is definitely needing an update(and apparently that is in the works). The overlook from behind the lodge is nice and there is a nice hike off to the left of the lodge to another waterfall area. There is not much to see or do in the town of Davis.

We went in October of 2020. Not everyone adhered to wearing a mask so be cautious of this. We never saw the park entrance so just keep your eyes open. The trails are beautiful and quite short. The longest one we could find was about a mile. You can jump from one to another near the lake to make it longer. Absolutely amazing views. Worth the stop!

Only here for a little while, but we should have spent more time exploring around the park and the local area. Short little walk from the parking lot to the falls. Very crowded during Covid because we came just after peak leaves. Beautiful falls. Gift shop and restaurant were closed for Covid so plan accordingly. No fee to get in.
