Christmas in the Park light display illuminates holidays at Chief Logan

We love the holidays here at West Virginia State Parks. From festive decorations in lodges to light displays around parks and forests, we welcome you and your family to enjoy some holiday cheer with us this December.

Our biggest holiday display is Christmas in the Park at Chief Logan State Park. This incredible drive-through light display is a can’t-miss event if you live in southern West Virginia and love Christmas lights.

Here’s everything you need to know.

What is Christmas in the Park?

Christmas in the Park has been an annual tradition at Chief Logan since 1994. During the holiday season, the park is decorated with hundreds of thousands of dazzling lights. The displays are spaced out over a two-mile stretch of road, so you and your family can drive through the park and enjoy the show. Visitors who wish to drive though the park and see the lights should enter the park from the entrance on W.Va. 10 in Justice Addition.

When is Christmas in the Park?

Christmas in the Park is open Nov. 25-Dec. 31, nightly 5:30 p.m. until 10 p.m.

How Much Does Christmas in the Park Cost?

Christmas in the Park is free, but donations are accepted to help pay for electricity and maintenance.

What Else Can I Do at Chief Logan?

Enjoy outdoor adventures and activities at Chief Logan State Park by planning an overnight trip with your family. Go hiking or explore nearby attractions, eat dinner at the park restaurant and see the lights before you spend the night in Chief Logan’s lodge or one of the park’s cozy cabins. If you don’t feel like staying, still be sure to stop by the lodge for family pictures in the winter wonderland located in the alcove. Visit the Mountain Memory Gift shop for West Virginia made treasures. Stop by the Museum in the Park and visit the gift shop there for unique ornaments and gifts. 

Christmas is almost here and you don’t want to miss Christmas in the Park this year. Plan your trip today!
