This Antique Theme Park In West Virginia Will Make You Long For The Good Old Days
Nostalgia is a wonderful emotion that brings back fond memories from days gone by. If you grew up in central or southern West Virginia, then chances are good that if you didn’t go to Camden Park with your family, then you took at least one day trip with your school or church group. And this applies to the young and not-so-young (anymore) alike – since this family amusement park opened more than a hundred years ago.
