Where people and nature meet

West Virginia State Parks and Forests

…to “promote conservation by preserving and protecting natural areas of unique or exceptional scenic, scientific, cultural, archaeological, or historical significance and to provide outdoor recreational opportunities for the citizens of this state and its visitors.”  This mission statement, embodied in state law, has been the guiding principal for operating the West Virginia State Park system since its inception in the late 1920s.  Additionally, state parks and state forests continue to serve as major tourist attractions and travel destinations.
