NEARBY ATTRACTIONS

Pipestem Resort State Park

Stretches over 4,050 acres in the Bluestone River Gorge of West Virginia and boasts scenic views of steep terrains, rugged wilderness, and rushing waters against the backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains. The park derives its name from a local shrub that Native Americans and early pioneers used to create shafts for their tobacco pipes. This “pipe stem” became the namesake of Pipestem Resort State Park.   Adventure lovers and nature enthusiasts are attracted to Pipestem Resort State Park for its plentiful recreational activities. There’s no shortage of things to do at the park, whether it’s getting an adrenaline rush from zip lining, hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding through the wilderness or heading to the waters of Long Branch Lake and Bluestone River for kayaking, fishing, and swimming. And that’s not even including the Nature Center’s educational programs, open-air concerts at the amphitheater, or the 18-hole championship golf course.  Tour the treetops of West Virginia with a bird’s eye view of the Bluestone Gorge. In 2018 Bonsai Design, the country’s premier builder of ziplines, built a world class canopy tour at Pipestem Resort State Park. The course includes nine zips, a cable bridge and a belay.

For nature-lovers, our zipline tours satisfy the desire to be outdoors in the trees, communing with nature. For adrenaline junkies, the course crosses the Bluestone Gorge three times at heights of more than 300 ft. Four of the zips range from 1,000 to 1,700 ft. in length. Guests will zip from tree to tree at speeds up to 50 mph.

The final zip ends at Mountain Creek Lodge where guests are transported to the top of the mountain on Pipestem’s 3,410 ft. aerial tram.

Bluestone River

The lower 10 miles of the designated segment flow through an 800-foot deep gorge and offer warmwater fishing, whitewater boating when water level permits, and hiking along the river on a trail between Bluestone and Pipestem State Parks. Spectacular views of the river gorge may be seen from overlooks at Pipestem. A major portion of the lands are managed by the state to provide hunting opportunities; wild turkey is the featured species.   The Bluestone River rises along the northern flank of East River Mountain, 2.5 miles southwest of Springville, Virginia, and flows northeast 83 miles through Mercer County and Summers County in West Virginia to join the New River. Eleven miles of its lower course are protected by the National Park Service as the Bluestone National Scenic River.

Bluestone Lake

Bluestone Dam spans the New River, forming Bluestone Lake, the third largest lake in West Virginia. With a 2,040 acre surface area, the lake provides boaters, water skiers, and fishermen with great recreational opportunities. The State of West Virginia operates Bluestone State Park with cabin rentals, picnicking and camping facilities. Also, a swimming pool, gift shop, two boat ramps, and a marina are operated for the convience of the visitors. Camping opportunities are also available at the state’s Bluestone Lake Wildlife Management Area.

Construction on Bluestone Lake took several years, beginning in January 1949 and concluding in January of 1952. The lake has a dam that was constructed as part of the flood control system of the Kanawha River Basin. The system is intended to reduce damages from flooding. The lake can be accessed easily from both I-77 and I-64 with the dam located in Hinton, WV.

As the third largest public lake in West Virginia, Bluestone offers boating with unlimited horsepower. The lake has speed and no-wake zones.

New River

A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. The park encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.

Hinton is the southern gateway to New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. A once booming railroad center, the town has a large historic district, railroad museum, antique shops, and restaurants.

The largest waterfall on the New River, Sandstone Falls spans the river where it is 1500 feet wide. Divided by a series of islands, the river drops 10 to 25 feet.

Sandstone Falls marks the transition zone of the New River from a broad river of large bottomlands, to a narrow mountain river roaring through a deep boulder strewn V- shaped gorge. The falls form the dramatic starting line for the New Rivers final rush trough the New River Gorge to its confluence with the Gauley river to form the Kanawha River.
