While on a girls' weekend, we opted to visit the spa at the State Park rather than one of the private spas. It was a unique experience with a soaking roman bath followed by a massage with olive oil and the option to shower at the end. The employees were professional and kind. It was not a fancy spa, but that's not what we were looking for.

I take a few trips a year through this area and I always try to time it so that I can stop and take a soak in the roman baths at Berkeley Springs State Park. The baths themselves are not opulent, but are large, serviceable, and clean. I have never had a reservation, so sometimes there is a short wait because they empty and fill the bath between customers. The baths themselves are large enough for 5 or 6 people, but I always go alone, so I luxuriate in the spaciousness.

The staff have always been welcoming and friendly. The facility is what you might expect when you think "West Virginia State Park". It was probably built 40 or 50 years ago and receives regular maintenance, but no updating. Being congenitally blue collar, that is fine with me, but if you are used to having your bed turned down, you may feel that it is a bit too pedestrian. The fee is pedestrian also, so at least they are consistent.

Since it is right in the middle of town, you can also get something to eat, do a little shopping, and visit the museum upstairs. There is also some history to the place. Overall, a nice place to break up a trip and spend an hour or two.

The relaxing whirlpool followed by a great massage is well worth the money. Everyone was friendly and accomodating. My only gripe would be that I didn't get a massage in a private room. Other than that, hubby and I were relaxed and happy.

This is a fun stop if you are in Berkeley Springs. For just $22, the attendant fills your private walk in tub chest deep with hot spring water and you can relax for 20 minutes. Towels and spring water are provided. I think they have tubs for up to 8 people of the same gender. There is a small changing area in each tub room, so don't bring a lot of extra bags or belongings or they might get wet. Also, do not bring any soaps, shampoos, or oils. The facility is pretty rudimentary, but it provides a unique, relaxing and cheap bath experience. (This review is for the Old Roman Bath House, not the fancier spa facility on the other side of the town square.)

its not a big park, just a few city blocks, but it does have the springs and even the small pool where George Washington used to go. There is a public swimming pool there open in the summer. If you want to get in the water, go when its warm out. The water is not warm, but it does make your skin feel good. Lots of local shops and resturants around, so its a nice place to spend the day. A few bigger nature parks close by, so you can always do that if you feel like doing a nature hike or drive.
