Located along Route 52, near historic Bramwell in Mercer County, Pinnacle Rock State Park is one of the more interesting wayside parks operated by the West Virginia State Park system.

Towering above the rugged mountains of southeastern West Virginia, Pinnacle Rock is an unusual sandstone formation reaching 3,100 feet above sea level. This park provides a relaxing picnic area in an unusual scenic setting.
History of the Area
The park was opened in 1938 when the Conservation Commission purchased a 26 acre tract of land surrounding the rock. Parking areas, walkway and a large picnic shelter with a stone fireplace were then constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in conjunction with the state of West Virginia. Today there are nearly 400 acres which include Jimmy Lewis Lake (seasonally stocked with trout) located nearby within the park boundary.

Pinnacle Rock State Park offers visitors a picnic area equipped with grills and a reservable picnic shelter with a stone fireplace. This shelter seats approximately 75 people.
