Blackwater Falls State Park Lodge
Reviewed June 14, 2011

The lodge is typical of those in state parks. Don't expect elegance, and the place needs a facelift but it is nice for a park locale. Trails are very convenient to the lodge, and the park is great.

Blackwater Falls State Park Lodge is a great place to stay. It's inexpensive and there's beautiful hiking just steps away. The temperatures always are cooler here than in Baltimore or Washington, DC. This also is a good place to stay if you want to explore Dolly Sods Wilderness Area (but sleep in a soft bed rather than camp).

The food in the lodge is okay, not wonderful. We go to the Purple Fiddle in the next town for live music and good food every night.

My wife and I just got back from a really enjoyable trip to West Virginia. We stayed at Blackwater Falls State Park. (In one of the Cabins). The cabin and park are very clean. Lots of great hiking trails. Beautiful view of the canyon and mountains. The cabins have a stove and fridge, but do not have TV. (which was fine for us). A tip for people that are not use to the mountains. Distance is determined by hours not miles. A place that might be only 10 miles away could take you 45 minutes to get to. Also Do not eat at the lodge, food isn't that great. Davis has a few restaurants. But I would recommend getting food in town and cooking at the cabin.

Blackwater Falls State Park is a great place to visit, get away from it all, and hike till you drop. The motel is clean, friendly staff and worth staying here especially since it is in the middle of the park. Many opportunites abound just by starting from the parking lot.

I booked this last minute and did not know exactly what to expect. The lodge is great. My husband & I went to the Canaan Valley primarily for some skiing....the lodge was warm, rooms were clean and comfortable...great amenities including a big hot tub and pool. On site restaurant serving all you can eat breakfast (eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes....you name it) for ~ $10 pp. Dinner too although we did not eat here in the evening.

This is one of the most charming establishments in which I've had the pleasure to stay. From the large fireplace in the public gathering room to the jigsaw puzzle also located here, (I haven't done one in years, it was nice to put forth my contribution to it.), it was all so nice. This lodge has the cleanest rooms ANYWHERE! I looked. No dust on ANYTHING. I have to tell you about the stars at night out back of the lodge at the overlook point for the canyon below. AMAZING! There seemed to be a galaxy just overhead with the brightest sparkling diamonds you'll ever see. I'll NEVER forget that sight. STUNNING! Sorry about the all caps. I usually don't but this place really, really impressed me in many ways. The trails are well marked and the grounds are kept impeccably clean and neat. The breakfast buffet was really a big hit. I liked everything. The bacon. I asked where I could buy it. It was the best we've ever had any where. It was like a bacon flavor explosion in your mouth with each perfectly cooked bite. My partner said the fried shrimp at dinner was among the best he's ever had. And believe it or not, I have to rave about the carrots. Yes, the carrots. Most tender and with just the right amount of sweetness, they were terriffic! It would have been nice if it were less expensive for the room, but I'd go back in a heartbeat if for no other reason, than to be there on a clear night just to see those wonderous, gleaming collection of stars in their backyard. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, the falls themselves were absolutley beautiful. Some of the nicest I've been to. Well worth the effort spent walking up and down the stairs to the viewing platform. The canyon out back of the lodge had some of the best fall foliage I've ever seen. We were there around the 13th of October. Just can't say enough good things about my time spent here. Two negatives: the restaurant was short-staffed during dinner, but it was quite a minor inconvenience. And they charged if you wanted to use the indoor pool. We declined. Not a deal-breaker by any means. We aren't big water enthusiasts anyway.

We spent the weekend here for a friend's wedding. It's a great, budget-friendly option, if you're planning a trip to this area. The rooms are pretty bare bones and could really use updating, but they were clean and the bed was very comfortable. FYI, the view from room 222 is particularly nice. The only complaint is that sound travels very easily through the doors.
The food was exactly what you would expect at a place like this - hearty and filling. Try the breakfast buffet for the warm, fresh biscuits and pancakes. The lodge catered the wedding reception and everybody loved it - they even had a tasty vegetarian option that was *not* the usual pasta.

The town of Davis is charming, if tiny. Hellbender Burritos is a great lunch/dinner place.
