“Home of the famous amber waterfalls”

Located in the Allegheny Mountains of Tucker County, Blackwater Falls State Park is named for the amber waters of Blackwater Falls, a 57-foot cascade tinted by the tannic acid of fallen hemlock and red spruce needles. The park has 20 miles of hiking trails, the longest sledding magic carpet on the East Coast in the winter, and a comfortable lodge.

Beautiful!! Easy to find plenty of parking w indoor bathrooms. Waterfall was breathtaking. We had our 1yr old-the stroller made it half way down and we carried him the other half, but you can see the falls most of the way down to it. Super easy trail with 3 young kids. A must see stop!

Absolutely Lovely and dog friendly. for avid hikers I recommend finding one of the trails down below the falls instead (or in addition to) the public access. its a trek for sure not for anyone that isn't used to difficult hiking but we went down to the river and climbed back up towards the falls and it was gorgeous

We stayed in the campground and it was great. The sites are well spaced, only need a little leveling, and there is a nice clean bathroom. There are many trails of all kinds in the park, which has several waterfalls. The nearby Lodge is a full service hotel with a good restaurant and lovely views. We had an excellent dinner there. There is a "trading post" store as well near the main Blackwater Falls access. We stayed for two nights and loved it.

Blackwater Falls State Park has over 20 miles of hiking trails, some of which lead to the park’s namesake, the nearly 60-foot waterfall. These falls have an amber coloring to them and are absolutely stunning!

We think a visit to this state park is one of the best things to do in West Virginia!

Absolutely gorgeous! We got turned around 3.6 miles at Lindy point so just be sure to look for signs they’re just small! It was all worth the views though 10/10.
