Babcock State Park is one of the coolest parks I have been in. In a very small space you will have an outstanding array of variety in river, waterfall, landscape, and antique grist mill. Even the ranger station there is a cool construction. You'll spend a lot of time here and it is one of the most photographed places in West Virginia. Quite a popular place. If you are needing a place to vacation, you could definitely do worse than Babcock. They have cabin rentals and camping as well.

From Charleston, follow Rt. 60 East to Rt. 41 South.
From the east, follow I-64 to the Sam Black Church exit, then follow US Rt. 60 West to Rt. 41 South.
From the north take US 19 exit off I-79 and follow US 19 to US Rt. 60 East to Rt. 41 South.
