Hike to the 57-foot waterfall surrounded by photogenic landscapes.
Blackwater Falls State Park is located in the Allegheny Mountains in Tucker County, West Virginia. The vibrant amber colors of the waterfall along with the fallen hemlock and red spruce needles inspired the name of this state park. This state park has an abundance of breathtaking landscapes, and there are many outlook points that are popular among photographers. The park is accessible year-round and is the perfect area for sledding and skiing in the winter. The park hosts seasonal winter events, including a duct tape cardboard sled race. The park also has 20 miles of scenic hiking trails.
This place became a state park in 1937. Since 1955, newly updated renovations including lodging, cabins, fishing facilities have been added. Visitors can enjoy the lodge, the smokehouse restaurant, and outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, camping, snow sports, and more. Blackwater Falls State Park is an extraordinary destination for every outdoor lover.
