Located at the extreme tip of West Virginia's norther panhandle, Tomlinson Run provides a wide range of recreational opportunities to a large number of local and out-of-state visitors.

The park's 1,398 acres extend along the stream from which it gets its name, both of which are named for a family of early settlers, to within a mile of the stream's confluence with the Ohio River.

Roughly divided into two sections, the park offers a wilderness area of heavily forested hills, overhanging cliffs of sandstone and shale, and a profusion of wildflowers and fauna. Featured within the developed areas of the park are picnicking, boating, miniature golf, basketball and volleyball courts, swimming, a campground and a group camp. In addition, program events are scheduled from April through October.

Yurt Rentals at Campground What is a Yurt?Though generally classified as a tent, the yurt is much stronger and weather-tight. Our yurts are a circular structure that consist of a durable fabric cover, tension band and a wood frame that includes a lattice wall, radial rafters, central compression ring and a framed door.

Yurt Rental is a unique offering only at Tomlinson Run and is perfect for the novice camper. You may rent a 2 person yurt, complete with a cooler, a propane stove, lantern, picnic table and cookware, and one set of bunk beds. Two yurt sites are available at the park.

Yurt reservations are accepted beginning February 15 by mail only for the period from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day and are handled in the same manner as a regular campsite rental.
Tomlinson Run offers a 54-site campground with contact station, convenience store, dump station, and two bathhouses featuring hot showers and laundry facilities. All sites are suitable for tent or trailer and feature picnic tables and grills; while 39 sites feature electric hookups. Open April 1st through October 31.

There is also a Rustic Camping Area which is offered as a great area for scouts and other groups looking to rough it.

Campsite Reservation Policies:At Tomlinson Run, reservations may be made by mail, phone, or in person at least seven days in advance, for a minimum of two nights to a maximum of 14. Reservations are accepted beginning February 15 by mail only for the period from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day. In addition to the usual fee, a handling charge per site and the complete camping fee will be required for deposit.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 7 A very nice old fashioned state park by Old fat camper
Best part is the people. Helpful, friendly down to Earth folks. Campsites are OK---nothing more. I have always wanted to give it a try since my name is Tomlinson.
September 8 Out of Town Guest by Leslie from Pa
My husband and I are from Pennsylvania, and we frequent the area attractions in West Vrginia, we always make a point to visit Tomlinson State Park. So much to do. We often enjoy Hiking, paddle boating, and miniature golf. The staff members are always pleasant. On the off season at the park, we relax at the picnic area and enjoy a meal. A relaxing place to visit.
September 21 Hidden Treasure by Bill Owings
I grew up in New Manchester and spent my youth in TRSP. Every time I visit my folks (still residents), I take some time to hike a trail or two and discover some of the things I may have overlooked as a kid. The park is always very clean and it allows for a great deal of solitude. I would give anything to have this beautiful place a few steps from my back door today.
