Itineraries for adventurous couples

The couple that plays together stays together, right? Sweep your sweetheart off his or her feet with a romantic adventure at West Virginia state parks and forests!

Plan a long stay at Pipestem Resort State Park because you’ll want to try everything here! Channel your inner child by climbing and jumping from dozens of inflatables on the Adventure Lake. Take it to the next level with a guided whitewater rafting trip or tubing on the New River and Bluestone rivers. Then, dry off with a breezy flight through the trees on Pipestem Peaks zipline canopy tours. At the end of your day, curb your appetite for adventure and enjoy a great meal in Pipestem’s Bluestone Restaurant.

Horsing Around 

Channel the Wild West with an equestrian camping adventure at Camp Creek State Park and Forest. Visitors have access to 35 miles of trails. Additionally, there are seasonally stocked trout streams. The park’s Double C Horse and Rider Campground offers sites so you can camp and sleep under the stars like a cowboy!

Day Tripping

If you’re the type of couple that likes to get out and drive the countryside, plan a getaway to Watoga State Park. West Virginia’s largest state park offers over 10,000 acres for hiking, fishing and boating, but there’s plenty to do nearby as well. Experience Civil War history at Droop Mountain Battlefield. Explore unique rock formations at Beartown State Park. Set aside a day to drive north to Cass Scenic Railroad, where you can ride authentic steam gear-driven locomotives and tour a historic logging camp.

Snow Sports

Lovers of snow sports will want to plan a winter getaway to Canaan Valley Resort and Blackwater Falls state parks—just a few miles apart from each other in the mountain town of Davis, W.Va.. Experience the thrill of the longest sled run on the East Coast at Blackwater Falls, then head over to Canaan for skiing, tubing, and ice skating in the winter months.

Weddings and Honeymoons

With beautiful scenery, indoor and outdoor venues, lodging, catering and more, West Virginia state parks and forests are the ideal location for your wedding or honeymoon. Picture saying your vows before a gathering overlooking Tygart Lake or or at the Hawks Nest Overlook.  Snap your engagement photos in front of romantic backdrops like Blackwater Falls or the Glade Creek Grist Mill. Plan a spa-centered honeymoon at Cacapon Resort and Berkeley Springs. The possibilities are endless.
