The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered West Virginia’s Best Kept Secret

While West Virginia has some world-famous state parks like Babcock State Park and Blackwater Falls State Park, some of its lesser known state parks are no less worthy of a visit. Tomlinson Run State Park is hidden away in the very tip of the Northern Panhandle, so not every West Virginian has found time to visit. Here’s why you should.

You can find out more information about the park and accommodations on their website. Directions from the website: Located in the northern panhandle 19 miles north of Weirton on WV Rt. 2, Tomlinson Run State Park is easily accessible by taking WV 8, north, where it intersects with WV 2 at New Cumberland, and following signs to the park which is just north of New Manchester, WV.

For another lesser known but still stunning state park in West Virginia, take a look at Beartown State Park.
