  • We frequent the park often. We go for so many different in the park...reinactments, walking, playgrounds for the kids, small zoo, fishing lake, etc. 
  • The park was pretty however the staff and lifeguards at the pool have got to be some of the rudest people I've ever encountered. Instead of sitting in the chairs and watching the swimmers they congregate around a picnic table and socialize with one another. A little boy was drowning and other swimmers pulled him out of the water and the "life guards" had no idea it happened. Horrible experience and I wouldn't recommend the place!
  • Love this park and everything that it offers. Also if you have kids it's a wonderful place to take them to view wild animals like deer and other Critters also sites for picnicking with playgrounds for the children to play on. Furthermore they also have a pool that is open to the public for those hot summer days. Not to mention camping.
  • I took my son camping during his spring break. We had a great time, the camp grounds were nice. My only complaint was that the park guy never came around to see if we needed fire wood. I wanted to buy some upon check in and was told the park ranger would come around hourly, to see if we needed anything and he would be the one to sell the wood........ we NEVER saw him. Other than that LITTLE inconvenience, I REALLY enjoyed and would recommend this place to anyone wanting to go camping
  • Love this place. My kids love this park. Lots of rooms an play areas. Great fishing spot. Great place for families to get together. Lots of deer everywhere.
  • 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.
