Blackwater Falls State Park & Picnic Menu

Picnic Menu

West Virginia Country Roads Cooking RecipesBlackwater Falls State Park is located in the Allegheny Mountains of Tucker County, West Virginia.

It is among the most photographed venues in the state and appears on calendars, stationery, advertisements of all kinds and, most famously, on jigsaw puzzles. The River is named for its tannic acid-darkened water.
