“The Cabin was a Big Disappointment”

Bluestone State Park
Ranked #1 of 7 things to do in Hinton
Attraction details
Reviewed July 22, 2013

On the positive side the cabin was clean and the atmosphere of the park was nice. The Park office staff was nice and helpful. Renting a pontoon boat at the nearby marina was a highlight of our stay. However, the cabin is what ruined it for us. We stayed in cabin #4. The cabins are not air conditioned and I knew this prior to making the reservation. It was expectedly warm in the evenings with high 70's low 80's temperatures but the cabin had ceiling fans in each room which made the temperatures bearable as long as the air was moving. However every single window and door screen in the cabin had holes or was ripped on one side. We had a minimal number of lights on at night to try not to attract bugs. However, it was horrible. We were constantly being dive bombed by moths and flying bugs the first two evenings and on the third evening we lost electricity at 9:45 p.m. (there was no storm). At 12:30 a.m. we could not stand the heat, the dark, and bugs any longer. We packed by the lights of our cell phones and drove home.

The lake- formed by the dam, is awesome. Rent a fishing boat (seats 4) and go exploring. You can fish or go tubing as well. A great way to get up close and personal to this part of the state.

A good place to picnic and fish. Small enough to enjoy, large enough to be spread out from other people!

Bluestone park is tucked away in Southern West Virginia near a little town called Hinton.
They offer a beautiful outdoor pool in the summer with breath taking views of the mountains. They have cute picnic areas and camping facilities. Pack a picnic and head to your local state park!
