  • Very serene, quiet and shaded open green space with plenty of amenities and things to keep your family and little ones entertained. Excellent place to come to and relax, clear your head and enjoy some fresh air.
  • I haven't been back to Chief Logan State Park in like 5 or more years. Back then it was nice and seemed to have a good energy. Went back last week and I couldn't wait to get out of there. All the creeks were cloudy white in areas. I also found a drug needle in the parking lot beside the museum area. The museum was still pretty cool. But the pond looked disgusting.
  • We've been to the park several times and are heading there this weekend. We always stay at the lodge on the mountain. Most breathe taking views of the starry sky on a clear night. Can sit around the fire ring outback, roasting marshmallows, and cracking jokes. Would recommend it to anyone and everyone who enjoys the outdoors!!
  • Great place to take your children and see wildlife. Summer time they have a pool with slides, walking trail, a pond for fishing, a place to set up RV's and tents and a small zoo. Just and all around great place. At Christmas time they have the entire place set up with lights to take your children to see.
  • Good place to go for a picnic. Just happened to be the closest public swimming pool where I live. Which has a nice big slide, and two diving boards. The park is old, and due to the decline in coal, it's lost funding. It needs a face lift, and some TLC. There is the Hatfield/McCoy trail for ATV riders up in the mountains.
