Explore Bluestone Lake Area

Covering over 2,100-acres of rugged, heavily forested, mountainous terrain, Bluestone State Park provides a wide range of water-oriented activities for guests and residents of southern West Virginia. 

West Virginia: Wild and Wonderful In the midst of this wilderness park, just five miles south of Hinton, are nestled modern cabins, a campground and fine recreational facilities. The extra plus is that Bluestone is adjacent to Bluestone Lake, the state's third largest body of water.

Several points of historical and recreational interest are located in the Bluestone area. For instance, famous outdoor musical dramas such as �Hatfields and McCoys,� are performed at Grandview Park, near Beckley.

Just north of the park is Bluestone Dam, Historic Hinton, and the New River Gorge National River, the center of some of the state's best whitewater rafting and canoeing. Of special note is Sandstone Falls, just north of Hinton. 

Bluestone National Wild and Scenic River flows into Bluestone Lake within the Park boundaries.  Hunting and fishing opportunities abound at 17,632-acre Bluestone Wildlife Management Area adjacent to the park and nearby Camp Creek State Forest. Or
