We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Did you know about the visitor center at R. D. Bailey Lake? You can find it at 1110 Visitor Center Road, which is just off of U.S. Route 52 between the small communities of Hanover and Justice. Note that the visitor center and dam overlook hours are subject to change depending on the season, but it is often not open on weekends and nearly always closes at 4:00 p.m. To learn more, visit the US Army Corps of Engineers R. D. Bailey Lake Facebook page. Love gorgeous West Virginia views? Like we said earlier, the list of spots to find them just goes on and on and on.
