Overview[edit] West Virginia's state parks are governed by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR) Parks and Recreation Section, which is under the jurisdiction of the West Virginia Department of Commerce.[7][8][9] The WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section manages a system of 37 state parks (including two rail trails) and eight state forests totaling around 164,000 acres (66,368 ha) of land, which consists of nearly 12,000 acres (4,856 ha) of developed lands with recreational facilities and nearly 152,000 acres (61,512 ha) of undeveloped land.[10][c] In total, West Virginia has over 1.6 million acres (6,475 km2) of state and federal protected lands.[11] State parks and forests also feature more than 1,400 miles (2,253 km) of hiking trails across 45 areas.[10] There are state parks in 30 of West Virginia's 55 counties with Pocahontas County having the most at five.[1][2] WVDNR divides the state into six regional districts to administer its state parks, forests, and wildlife management areas.[12] The largest state park by area is Watoga at 10,100 acres (4,087 ha), and Fairfax Stone and Tu-Endie-Wei are the smallest at four acres (1.6 ha).[13] Four state parks have U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) dams or reservoirs: Beech Fork, Bluestone, Stonewall Jackson Lake, and Tygart Lake.[14][15] Nine state parks feature New Deal-era buildings and structures completed between 1933 and 1942; Lost River has the most with 78.[d] Cathedral is the only state park designated a National Natural Landmark,[17] and Grave Creek Mound is the only state park to have ever been designated a National Historic Landmark.[18] Stonewall Jackson Lake is the first and only West Virginia state park to be developed, constructed, financed, and operated through a public–private partnership.[4] As of 2016[update], the WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section directly employed more than 400 full-time and around 1,000 seasonal and summer employees who serviced approximately 7.1 million visitors (65% state residents and 35% out-of-state).[10][19] WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section personnel maintain over 2.5 million square feet (232,258 m2) of indoor space in more than 1,500 buildings in West Virginia state parks and forests, which have an inventory of 818 lodge rooms, 369 cabins, 1,522 campsites, 144 picnic shelters, and 549 playground units.[10] The total economic impact of West Virginia state parks and forests annually is between US$160.5 million and $189.5 million and for every $1 of general tax revenue provided to state parks and forests in 2016, $13.15 on average was generated in fresh revenue for the state.[19] In 2016, visitors to state parks and forests spent $226.5 million throughout the state, of which 46% ($103.6 million) was spent by out-of-state visitors.[19] The total economic activity attributed to visitors of state parks and forests in 2016 totaled between $213.4 million and $248.7 million.[19] Audra Babcock Beartown Beech Fork Berkeley Springs Blackwater Falls Blennerhassett Island Bluestone Cacapon Resort Camp Creek Canaan Valley Resort Carnifex Ferry Cass Scenic Railroad Cathedral Cedar Creek Chief Logan Droop Mountain Fairfax Stone Greenbrier River Trail Hawks Nest Holly River Little Beaver Lost River Moncove Lake North Bend North Bend Rail Trail Pinnacle Rock Pipestem Resort Prickett's Fort Stonewall Jackson Lake Tomlinson Run Tu-Endie-Wei Twin Falls Resort Tygart Lake Valley Falls Watoga Watters Smith West Virginia state parks map with 37 clickable links


History[edit] West Virginia's lumber and mineral exploitation had caused tremendous damage to much of its natural environment by the early 20th century.[16] The state recognized the need to designate and protect lands worthy of conservation, and in 1925 the West Virginia Legislature established the West Virginia State Forest, Park and Conservation Commission to assess the state's opportunities and needs for forests, parks, game preserves, and recreational areas.[16][20] West Virginia's state park system began to take shape in January of that year, when the Commission purchased land in Pocahontas County for a wildlife and timber preserve that later developed into Watoga.[21] In their report to the Legislature in 1927, the Commission recommended that scenic natural areas be acquired and administered by a State Park System under the State Game and Fish Commission and that historical monuments be administered by a State Monuments System.[20] They also identified a list of potential scenic and historic state park sites.[e] One of these recommended sites became West Virginia's first state park, Droop Mountain Battlefield, also in Pocahontas County.[20] The park was acquired in 1928 and dedicated on July 4, 1929, to commemorate one of the largest battles in West Virginia during the American Civil War.[22] Four other historic locations recommended by the Commission had already been established and would later become state parks; the earliest of these was the Point Pleasant Monument (now Tu-Endie-Wei), which had been acquired by the state in 1901 and dedicated in 1909.[f] The Legislature established the West Virginia Conservation Commission Division of State Parks in 1933 to manage the state's growing park system, and to leverage the resources and expertise of the National Park Service (NPS), Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), Works Progress Administration (WPA), and other New Deal-era programs for further park development.[27] By 1945, the Division of State Parks had expanded to 13 state parks with the addition of its first USACE reservoir park at Tygart Lake.[28] Because African Americans were denied access to West Virginia's state parks and forests, the Division of State Parks created the only state park on the basis of racial segregation, Booker T. Washington State Park, in 1949.[29] African Americans were restricted from the remainder of the state park and forest systems until the park and forest systems' integration following the Brown v. Board of Education decision by the United States Supreme Court in May 1954.[30][31][32] By 1950, the Division of State Parks was operating 16 state parks totaling 35,973 acres (14,558 ha)[33] and by 1954, the state had expanded to 20 state parks totaling 40,355 acres (16,331 ha).[34][35] That year, the NPS noted that West Virginia had made "large percentage gains" in adding refreshments facilities to its park system, which totaled 11.[34][36] Revenue bonds allowed the park system to expand and upgrade recreational facilities and lodging throughout the 1950s,[37] and by 1960, the Division of State Parks was operating 24 state parks consisting of 40,987 acres (16,587 ha).[38] During the 1960s, the Economic Development Administration (EDA) federal loan program allowed the state to add three new parks to its system: Canaan Valley Resort, Pipestem Resort, and Twin Falls Resort.[39] Visitors to West Virginia state parks and forests totaled 4.3 million by 1968 and almost 5 million in 1971.[40][41] Following the Legislature's passing of the Economic Development Act of 1985, the West Virginia Division of Parks and Recreation was transferred from the West Virginia Conservation Commission to the West Virginia Department of Commerce, where it remains today.[8][9][42] The most recent additions to the West Virginia state park system, Stonewall Jackson Lake and North Bend Rail Trail, were added in 1990 and 1991, respectively.[4][43]

Explanatory notes[edit] ^ The WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section governs 37 state parks (including two rail trails), according to the West Virginia Blue Book (2016) and the West Virginia State Parks website (2017).[1][2][3] ^ Stonewall Jackson Lake is operated through a public–private partnership between the WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section and McCabe-Henley LP.[4] ^ The WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section refers to all its lands (state parks, rail trails, and state forests) as "state parks", and all data released by the section is inclusive of state parks, rail trails, and state forests as "state parks".[10] ^ The following nine West Virginia state parks contain New Deal-era buildings and structures: Babcock (46), Cacapon Resort (50), Droop Mountain Battlefield (19), Hawks Nest (10), Holly River (26), Lost River (78), Pinnacle Rock (18), Tomlinson Run (19), and Watoga (72).[16] ^ In its report to the West Virginia Legislature in 1927, the West Virginia State Forest, Park and Conservation Commission recommended the following locations for scenic state parks: Blennerhassett Island in Wood County, Coopers Rock in Monongalia and Preston counties, Cranberry Glades and its surrounding area in Pocahontas County, Hawks Nest in Fayette County, Pinnacle Rock in Mercer County, and the intersection of the Seneca and Midland trails in Greenbrier County. Seneca Rocks and Smoke Hole Caverns were also recommended; however, the Commission acknowledged that both were slated to join the new Monongahela National Forest. The Commission also recommended the following locations for historic state parks: the Battle of Philippi battlefield in Barbour County, Berkeley Springs in Morgan County, the Caddell Rifle Range near Kingwood in Preston County, Droop Mountain in Pocahontas County, Fort Ashby in Mineral County, the Grave Creek Mound in Marshall County, the James Rumsey Monument in Jefferson County, the Morgan Morgan Monument in Berkeley County, and the Point Pleasant Monument in Mason County. The Commission also deferred to the West Virginia Historical Society for further recommended historic sites for preservation as state parks.[20] ^ Four parks established prior to Droop Mountain would later join the park system: the Point Pleasant Monument (now Tu-Endie-Wei) in Mason County was established in 1901 and became a state park in 1956;[23] the Grave Creek Mound in Marshall County was acquired by the state in 1909 and administered by the West Virginia State Penitentiary warden until becoming a state park in 1970;[24] the James Rumsey Monument in Jefferson County was dedicated in 1915 and made a state park in 1956;[25] and the Morgan Morgan Monument in Berkeley County was erected in 1924 and became a state park in 1956.[26] ^ The WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section administers Camp Creek State Forest and Camp Creek State Park together under a single superintendent.[85] ^ The WVDNR Parks and Recreation Section operates Chief Logan Lodge and Conference Center and Chief Logan State Park under separate management teams. While they are occasionally listed and counted separately in Parks and Recreation Section media, they are included together in this list as Chief Logan State Park.[111] ^ Booker T. Washington State Park was not listed among a list of West Virginia state parks in the 1959 West Virginia Blue Book[206] and in the 1960 NPS tabulation of U.S. state parks.[207] The 1958 West Virginia Blue Book did not include a listing of West Virginia state parks.[208]
