These 8 State Park Swimming Pools Are The Best And Least Expensive In West Virginia
Is the heat already getting to you? We feel ya. Summertime temperatures can begin to soar as early as late spring in The Mountain State. But cooling off and enjoying the great outdoors isn’t always an easy feat to accomplish. If you’re not quite up for a day at a water park (or the expense that comes with it), then head to one of the many state parks with outdoor pools, where admission to the park and the pool won’t cost you an arm and a leg. We’ve listed eight of them below. Which one is nearest to where you live?
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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Some West Virginia State Parks may charge a per vehicle entry fee. Pool fees vary by park. Most parks offer season passes to the park as well as to the pool.
