No matter when you visit Wheeling WV, there is something to do at Oglebay Park (and it's smaller cousin, Wheeling Park). The winter light show, spring flowers, summer outdoor activities, and fall festivals are all available to be enjoyed for minimal cost. A walkabout visit is possible without spending a dime on entrance or parking. Wheeling Park's Ice rink (winter)... More

It doesn't matter what you want to do, you can do it at Pglebay. Swim, golf, walk under vines trellises, enjoy gardens, rent a cabin, ski, ride horses, sit in front of a fire in a lodge, eat, visit a zoo....there is something for everyone and Wheeling can be very proud of this park.

We had our wedding here! It was truly the most amazing experience ever. Everyone raved about the food and the views were gorgeous! The staff vendors upgraded our room for the wedding night! I highly recommend it here! The views are breathtaking and there's so much to do!

We had a great time celebrating Christmas at Oglebay Park...but second year in a row, I requested a eight foot table for snacks and as usual they forgot our table, even after calling the front desk upon arrival reminding them we had requested the table...Oh well, maybe next year.. :I

I checked several websites that had conflicting dates the Festival of Lights would be on until Jan. 8th. I called Oglebay before we left our room & followed the prompts on the phone. They said it would be open til Jan. 8th, (this was saturday evening the 7th) but when we drove to the park & past the park &... More

We grew up in the area and love to go back when we can to enjoy this park. You will always spot hordes of deer grazing along the roads and paths. So much to se and do here.

We drove a little over an hour from Pittsburgh to see the Festival of Lights. We chose to pay less than the $20 donation. I'm not sure it's worth $20, but maybe to some people! The display was not like I expected. There are different segments of lights: some near the golf course, some near the tiny ski area, some... More

We've talked about going to see the lights at Christmas for about fifty years. This year we did and now wish we had gone much sooner. We joined about a thousand others the week after Christmas on a sold-out, mid-week, two day visit. That is clearly their busy season. The sheer size of the park allows for so many things... More

I'd like to start by saying that Oglebay is simply stunning at Christmas time! When the Lodge is decorated it is so cozy & warm. Festival of lights is a must see - though all the spaced out lights can be confusing if you're not from the area.

We have heard lots of things about the lights, so we thought we'd give them a try. Glad we did, a great light show! Was worried that the kids would have a hard time sitting in the van the whole time. Just let them sit on our laps and it was fine. They also have some places to stop and... More
