History

Twin Falls Resort State Park was named for Foley Falls and Black Fork Falls, which are found on park grounds. The park was built on 3,776 acres of land donated in 1964 by the Western Pocahontas Corporation and Pocahontas Land Corporation. In the following years, a golf course, cabins and swimming pool were constructed. The lodge was completed in 1970. During the park’s development in the mid-1970s, an old pioneer homestead was reconstructed, and has since become the crown jewel of the park. A major renovation completed in 2011 added 27 additional rooms, a swimming pool and fitness center to the lodge.
