November 16 Family vacation favorite by Beth And Eddie Bailey Familyb
Best memories of our lifetime were made here. We love this area and the people around it. Have met some wonderful friends here over the years. We could never say enough about the park and employees. My grandchildren will always return long after we are gone.
August 9 The Number One State Park In WV by Charlotte McKeever Emswiler
Watoga is heaven on earth. Lived on the park as a child, father superintendent, worked at Watoga during my college years. I now take my grandchildren there, so many wonderful memories. My husband and I took a trip to Watoga yesterday. The weather was perfect and everything was beautiful. We need to go for a few days in the fall. We love to walk in the woods and build a big fire in the fireplace and chili in the crockpot. That is living!!!!

September 27 The most beautiful place on the planet by Leslie Gallian
In summers when we take our girls to see some other part of the country for vacation, they whine for days about not getting their time at Watoga State Park! It is a true vacation for families in this day & age of fast-paced living, electronics and noise. You get a break from all of that.
February 24 Our favorite trip by Ronnie Holstein, Dorothy WV
I rented one of the 8-person cabins, and took my kids, their kids and wifes. We enjoyed a wonderful week of family togetherness in 2009. Beautiful place. No better vacation anywhere. I have already booked for 2010.

Thanks to all the helpful staff ,we had a wonderful time and will be returning hopefully this fall.
July 24 Quiet Camping by Charlie in Salem, Va.
We enjoyed it. My wife and 2 kids (12 & 15 years old) hiked, fished, swam in the river and biked on the Greenbriar River Trail. Wish they had water hookups but bath house was clean. Park was very clean and quiet. We will be back.
May 8 Great Food
I recently traveled to Watoga and had the best meal in any State park. What a joy. The Pretty Penny, a little restaurant in the heart of the park was serving locally grown foods and it was delicious. What a wonderful trip back to West Virginia. It is so beautiful there. I love Watoga State Park.
