Nestled in the heart of West Virginia, Cedar Creek State Park's 2,483 lush acres are just 25 miles west of Interstate 79. This pastoral setting of rolling hills and wide valleys provides an ideal backdrop for a wide variety of recreational opportunities from cycling to pleasant family strolls.

One of the unique aspects of the campground is the check-in station, a restored log cabin which was formerly a Gilmer County historical landmark. Further adding to the charming ambience of the park, a reconstructed one-room schoolhouse has been erected as a testimonial to the early years of education. The schoolhouse has been faithfully restored complete with student desks, inkwells and a potbellied stove. Guided tours of this nostalgic attraction are offered on Saturdays during the summer months.

The swimming pool is open Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day 11 am to 6:45 pm. Miniature golf, tennis, basketball, volleyball, croquet, and a softball field are offered for a modest fee.

The three lakes at Cedar Creek are seasonally stocked fishing. Trout are stocked in late winter and early spring, muskie in summer and bass and catfish may be caught year-round.

Fourteen miles of trails offer guests a range of hiking experiences from leisure to challenging. Hikes are an excellent opportunity to observe the park's abundant wildlife.

There are several picnic sites and three reservable shelters throughout the park. If not reserved the shelters are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. An activity building is also reservable and great for family reunions.

Paddleboats can be rented for a leisurely trek around the largest of the ponds.
