Living History at the Wildlife Center

The Mountain Man and his primitive camp have been very popular with visitors to the WV Wildlife Center in French Creek. Dressed in 1780 -1835 period attire, mountain man represents men who hunted and trapped while exploring our country. He hunted and fished for food. He trapped beaver, fox, coyote, raccoon and other game. Most pelts were sold in the fur trade. Some pelts he used for clothing. Nothing was wasted. The Wildlife Center is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and regular admission fees apply.

When staying in a cabin or camping at Holly River State Park, plan a short drive (22 miles) to the WV Wildlife Center. Learn more at http://www.wvdnr.gov/Wildlife/WildlifeCenter.shtm. For additional information, call the center at 304-924-6211.
