Grandview State Park WV

Getting Back to Nature

Southern West Virginia has so much natural beauty, it is hard to take it all in. This trip takes you to four parks that showcase some of the best vistas in the region and help you get back to nature.

Stop 1 – Burning Rock

Add a little adventure to your vacation. At Burning Rock, you can hit the ATV trails with your own ATV, UTV or dirt bike. If you don’t have your own or don’t know how to ride, rentals are available and beginners are welcome. After you’re done splashing in the mud, take a trip down the longest dual-racing zip line in the area!

Stop 2 – Grandview

Part of the New River Gorge National River, this section of the National Park has spectacular views of the river as well as hiking trails and a seasonal visitor center. Every summer, Theatre West Virginia presents captivating performances including the renowned “Honey in the Rock” and “Hatfield and McCoys” at the outdoor theater.

Stop 3 – Lake Stephens

This Raleigh County park features a pristine mountain lake, beach, water sports, a marina, a full service campground, cabins, picnic pavilions, an overlook, and playgrounds.
