West Virginia State Parks and Forests

Some folks think West Virginia should be one giant national park, a natural playground for kids of all ages. In a way, it is. Eighty percent of the state is forested. Almost a million acres in the Potomac Highlands lie within the Monongahela National Forest. Another 200,000 acres are state parks, forests or wildlife management areas with great opportunities for camping, hiking and other pursuits. Visit West Virginia and experience for yourself the wild and wonderful natural resources that people living here experience every day.
