Celebrate Thanksgiving at West Virginia State Parks

This holiday, hang up your apron and let us do the cooking! Several West Virginia State Parks are preparing traditional Thanksgiving buffets. We invite you, your family and friends to join us!


The abundant Thanksgiving feasts will offer standard dishes, including turkey, ham and pumpkin pie. Also on the menu are regional favorites and even a surprise or two. Best of all, there is no clean up!

After dinner, walk off some calories by exploring one of the many trails within each park or participate in a family friendly activity. Book a lodge room or cabin and spend Black Friday with us, relaxing far from crowded shopping centers and gridlocked parking lots.


Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and celebrate with family and friends. There is no better way to do so than surrounded by the natural splendor of West Virginia.

With delicious meals, cozy cabins, and plenty of recreational opportunities for the entire family, West Virginia State Parks will offer you an unforgettable and extraordinary holiday.
