Blackwater Falls State Park is named for the falls of the Blackwater River whose amber-colored waters plunge five stories then twist and tumble through an eight-mile long gorge.
The "black" water is a result of tannic acid from fallen hemlock and red spruce needles. The falls are one of the most photographed sites in West Virginia.
Blackwater lodge, cabins and restaurant are open year-round and welcome visitors to enjoy winter sled riding, spring greening, cool summer evenings, and autumn foliage.

Favorite campground close to home

We stay here at least 3 times a summer. Our son loves to camp here. Facilities are clean, and well kept. Hot showers and flushable toilets. Town of Davis is about 3 miles away if that. There is a grocery store and a dollar store for any forgotten items. Blackwater Falls is close by and you can hear them at night time from the campground.Nice and relaxing. Lots of hiking trails, overlooks of the Blackwater canyon. You will see lots of wildlife. Turkey, Whitetail deer and even Black Bear. If you are around Blackwater falls, try this campsite out.
