  • Situated at the confluence of the Ohio and Kanawha rivers this little state park offers a treasure trove of historical interests and beautiful views. There is a historical log mansion, battle of point pleasant monument, and many important artifacts located around the park. There is also a walking trail along the Ohio River nearby to the point pleasant riverfront park, plenty to see and do!
  • Excellent for history buff. Lots to do with more attractions in vicinity. Site of revolutionary war battle. Beautiful location, historical cabin with museum type display. Interesting town. A mist see!
  • Absolutely gorgeous park. Great views of the bridges and rivers. Very relaxing place to sit and read. Surprisingly quiet given the proximity to traffic. Be sure to check out the nearby Mothman Statue as well!
  • Nice park, well maintained. Not a lot to see. Overall s good park. Nice to stop by if you're going to go see Mothman anyway.
  • This is easily accessible, quiet, historical and very scenic. If you're passing through Point Pleasant or visiting the Mothman, this place is a must.
