Tomlinson Run State Park
New Manchester, West Virginia 26056
Voice: 304-564-3651

Located at the extreme tip of West Virginia's northern 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.

Over 33 acres of water in the form of various ponds and lakes offer excellent fishing for bass, catfish, bluegill and trout. Also a part of the water-oriented activities at the park are boat docks where rental row and paddleboats are offered for your enjoyment. Chief among Tomlinson Run's recreational facilities is the swimming pool, the waterslide/bathhouse complex and snack bar (open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day). The pool boasts a 182' figure eight-shaped water slide. Not far from the pool area are basketball and volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, miniature golf and playground equipment. Swimming, boating, and mini-golf fees apply to all visitors. A network of hiking trails round out the recreational possibilities.
