Camden Park, Huntington

#1 of 6 in Theme Parks in West Virginia
Camden Park is a twenty-six acre amusement park located near Huntington, West Virginia. Established in 1903 as a picnic spot by the Camden Interstate Railway Company, it is one of only thirteen trolley parks that remain open in the United States. Whereas most trolley parks were located at the end of trolley lines, Camden Park is unusual in that it was built where riders traveling between Huntington and nearby cities would stop to change lines. Not long after opening, the park soon gained a carousel and other roadside attractions. Camden Park is West Virginia's only amusement park. The park is home to more than thirty rides and attractions, including a full-size traditional wooden roller coaster, the Big Dipper, and several other vintage rides.

Over the years, Camden Park has featured a swimming pool, a roller rink, and even a small zoo. Today, the park hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including live musical performances as part of the "Hot Summer Nights" concert series. Other events include the "Children's Festival," "Coca-Cola Days," and the "Halloween Spooktacular." The park is typically open six days a week from late May to early August, with a more limited schedule in late August, and select dates in September and October.

  • So much fun. Our youth group came from Ohio for one last bash before school started. They loved it. Not everything was up and rubbing on a Thursday night but it was still so much fun. Great prices and the adults had fun as well. Will be back
  • Love this place for some reason. I guess it brings out the kid in me. I love seeing how happy it makes the grand babies! The price after 5 drops in half and you get to enjoy the afternoon there without all the heat and less crowds! I cant wait for the Halloween haunted train ride!!
