West Virginia State Forests and Parks

Welcome to West Virginia

The state park system in West Virginia has grown to 36 parks and 2 rail trails since the dedication of the Droop Mountain Battlefield as the first state park on July 4, 1928.  The state park system is managed as a component of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.

West Virginia contains a network of eight state forests that help to protect over 70,000 acres of wooded lands in the state.  Most of the forests are managed by the West Virginia Division of Forestry, although Kanawha State Forest is managed as a state park by the Division of Natural Resources.  All of the forests except for Calvin Price contain recreational facilities managed in cooperation with the DNR.
