The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered West Virginia’s Best Kept Secret

While West Virginia has some world-famous state parks like Babcock State Park and Blackwater Falls State Park, some of its lesser known state parks are no less worthy of a visit. Tomlinson Run State Park is hidden away in the very tip of the Northern Panhandle, so not every West Virginian has found time to visit. Here’s why you should.

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.

You can find out more information about the park and accommodations on their website. Directions from the website: Located in the northern panhandle 19 miles north of Weirton on WV Rt. 2, Tomlinson Run State Park is easily accessible by taking WV 8, north, where it intersects with WV 2 at New Cumberland, and following signs to the park which is just north of New Manchester, WV.
