Nestled in the heart of West Virginia, Cedar Creek State Park's 2,483 lush acres are just 25 miles west of Interstate 79. This pastoral setting of rolling hills and wide valleys provides an ideal backdrop for a wide variety of recreational opportunities from cycling to pleasant family strolls.

Further adding to the charming ambience of the park, they erected a reconstructed one-room schoolhouse as a tribute to the early years of education. They faithfully restored the schoolhouse restored complete with student desks, inkwells and a potbellied stove. The park offers guided tours.


The swimming pool is open Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day 11 am to 6:45 pm.

Game courts

Miniature golf, tennis, basketball, volleyball, croquet, and a softball field are offered for a modest fee.
