Blackwater Falls State Park

Blackwater Falls State Park
1584 Blackwater Lodge Road

About Us:

Blackwater Falls State Park is named for the falls of the Blackwater River whose amber-colored waters plunge five stories then twist and tumble through an eight-mile long gorge.

The "black" water is a result of tannic acid from fallen hemlock and red spruce needles. The falls are one of the most photographed sites in West Virginia.

Blackwater lodge, cabins and restaurant are open year-round and welcome visitors to enjoy winter sled riding, spring greening, cool summer evenings, and autumn foliage.

You'll find good food, comfortable accommodations, and WiFi access if you must stay in touch while you're relaxing at Blackwater Falls.

Our conference facilities host reunions, meetings and special occasions as well as catered banquets and receptions. The indoor guest pool and fitness center is popular with our guests.

Tour buses are always impressed with the magnificent views found at the park in all seasons. There is ample parking and there are no entrance fees. The genuine hospitality you experience at Blackwater Falls is also found Canaan Valley area including the towns of Davis and Thomas, W.Va.
