The dense forests of Holly River State Park provide guests with a natural feeling of peaceful solitude. Located near the center of the state in Webster County, it is far from the hustle and bustle of city life making it a perfect vacation getaway. Holly River is the second largest park in the West Virginia park system with a total of 8,101 acres. Nestled in a narrow valley, the park is surrounded by heavily forested mountains some reaching heights of over 2,800 feet.
In the midst of this woodland paradise, park guests will find a myriad of recreational opportunities. Playing tennis, surrounding yourself with nature on one of the hiking trails, or just soaking up the sun by the swimming pool–all of these spell Holly River State Park.
For those park guests who want to rough it, there is the alternative of Holly River’s excellent camping facilities. The 88-unit campground offers electric hookups, picnic tables, and cooking grills at each site. A dumping station and four centralized bathhouses with toilet facilities, hot water showers and coin-operated washers and dryers round out the list of conveniences. Firewood is available for a nominal fee. Camping areas are normally open from the first weekend in April through November with a maximum camping period of two weeks allowed. Only one tent or trailer is allowed per site and check-in time is noon.
