The centerpiece of the park is Blackwater Falls, a 62-foot (19 m) cascade where the Blackwater River leaves its leisurely course in Canaan Valley and enters rugged Blackwater Canyon. It is among the most photographed venues in the state and appears on calendars, stationery, and advertisements. The river is named for its tannin-darkened water.

  • Blackwater Falls is a unique and beautiful park. We did several of the easy trails and all of them were beautiful! We even got to watch a storm roll out at Lindy Point — that was so cool.

  • A beautiful place to stop and relax to hear the water from the fall and the rushing water. Very soothing.

  • Just beautiful! We were there for a conference but I sincerely appreciated how kind the staff was. From the folks in the restaurant to the park rangers and everyone in between, they were helpful and kind. My room was spotless and nicely updated. The entire lodge was very clean and the decor fit the setting. As always, the highlight was the magnificent fall area. It’s just amazing to see and hear!
  • Blackwater falls is absolutely gorgeous. I was fortunate enough to time my visit after some good rain, so the falls were in full effect. While you're here don't miss Lindy point. It's only about 10 minutes or so away from the falls, and the view from the point is amazing! I love our state!
