Little Beaver State Park In West Virginia Is So Hidden Most Locals Don’t Even Know About It

It’s hard to imagine a West Virginian who doesn’t know about and love at least one of our amazing state parks. Blackwater Falls State Park, Babcock State Park, Watoga State Park, Pipestem State Park…these are names that pop up again and again of some of the most popular destinations in the state. But in a state with almost 40 state parks and another 8 state forests, there are bound to be a few state parks that fly under the radar.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

So make sure to plan a time to explore this hidden gem next time you are traveling through on Interstate 64. It’s a great spot to stop and stretch your legs. Or, stay for a few days in order to really soak in the beauty of this quiet lake and forest! As with any West Virginia State Park, admission is free. To learn more about accessing the park, visit its webpage here.
