Waterfalls in West Virginia

June 13, 2022

What is the tallest waterfall in West Virginia?

The tallest waterfall in West Virginia is called Blackwater Falls. You can find it inside of its namesake Blackwater Falls State Park. It’s really easy to get to, only a .04-mile trek along the beautiful Blackwater Falls Trail. Although once here you’ll find a series of wide—but well-kept and safe—stairways from which you can enjoy the falls from different angles.

Are there any waterfalls in or around the Charleston area?

There is one located only about a 40mile drive southwest of the city called Cathedral Falls. One of the many things that draws folks here from around the area and across the state is its height – a whopping 100-feet high! And true to its name, it cascades off of several natural surfaces which offers visitors a variety of vantage points from which to enjoy it. Cathedral Falls is definitely one of the most beautiful and best waterfall hikes in West Virginia.

I’m looking for campgrounds in West Virginia. Can you suggest a few?

Absolutely! There are wonderful campgrounds in West Virginia, each offering their own amenities and al fresco adventures. The Mountain Lake Campground and Cabins are just an 8-minute drive from the town of Summerville. This campground is very popular in part to its proximity to beautiful Summerville Lake. I would also suggest the campground located at Tygart Lake State Park. Located off Highway 50 about 40 minutes from the town of Clarksburg, the campground has a lot to offer, including that all important bathhouse for taking hot showers!
