The 11 Most Haunted Places in West Virginia

West Virginia has plenty of paranormal activity to share. The Mountain State can boost apparitions of Civil War Soldiers, encounters with extraterrestrial beings, and ghosts of murder victims still seeking justice along with many other paranormal anomalies.

Join us as we dig deeper into the 11 most haunted places in West Virginia.

1. Lake Shawnee Amusement Park, Mercer County

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park, Mercer County

In the late 1700s, there was a bloody altercation between a white settler named Mitchell Clay and the local tribe of Shawnee Indians.  This resulted in the tragic death of 3 of the Clay children and a number of Shawnee warriors.

Some say that these deaths have left a curse on the land. This may well be the case because in the 1920s a local businessman bought the land and built the Lake Shawnee Amusement Park.

Over the next couple of years, several people died in accidents at the park and it ended up closing down in 1966.

The abandoned remains of the park are now considered to be one of the most haunted locations in West Virginia.

There are regular paranormal tours of the property and many people have reported seeing apparitions of a man and a little girl dressed in pink.

2. North Bend Rail Trail Tunnel No 19, Ritchie County

North Bend Rail Trail Tunnel No 19, Ritchie County

The North Bend Trail extends for a total of 72 miles and is very popular with hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders. However, all of them need to make sure that they are particularly careful when navigating tunnel number 9, which is also known as the Silver Run Tunnel, as it is said to be extremely haunted!

As far back as 1910 reports started to emerge of a young lady in a flowing white dress standing on the tracks.

She was first seen by an engineer who brought his train to an abrupt halt thinking that he was going to hit her, but when he goes out to look for her she had gone – vanished into thin air.

Over the years many of his predecessors have experienced the same thing. It is not at all clear who she is, or why she is haunting the tunnel.

However, it is said that some human bones were uncovered under a house very close to the tunnel!

If you want to go looking for this lady in white then you are going to need a flashlight – even in the daylight since the damp tunnel is 1376 feet long and daylight does not penetrate it!

3. 22 Mine Road, Logan

22 Mine Road, Logan

Mamie Thurman lived the life of a carefree flapper during the Prohibition era, but it seems that she may have thrown a little too much caution to the wind since she ended up being discovered dead on the lonely 22 Mine Road.

A local handyman was charged with the murder, but most people believed it to be a well-known banker that Mamie had an affair with who was the real murderer.

Her body also disappeared and there are no records of a burial.

Perhaps this is why her restless soul is said to be haunting 22 Mine Road.

She is often seen there in search of justice and a final resting place.

4. Lewisburg Historic District, Lewisburg

Lewisburg Historic District, Lewisburg

One thing that West Virginia seems to have in abundance is towns that are haunted as opposed to just single buildings. One such town is Lewisburg, in particular the historic district.

Visitors to the town say that late at night they hear moaning and cries of pain coming from the Old Stone Church. Since the building served as a Civil War hospital this is thought to be the spirits of wounded soldiers.

The General Lewis Inn is also very haunted with up to 3 spirits in residence, all of whom are tricky and mischievous!

However, the most famous spirit here is an entity that is known as The Greenbrier Ghost.

This is the ghost of Zona Hester Shue, a lady who was murdered by her husband and who helped to convict him when appearing as a ghost!

5. Droop Mountain Battlefield, Pocahontas County

Droop Mountain Battlefield, Pocahontas County

Droop Mountain Battlefield has become a memorial commemorating West Virginia’s final significant battle during the Civil War.

On November 6, 1863, Brigadier General William Averell’s Union troops staged a crushing victor over the Confederates, driving them south into what is now Virginia.

The site became a national park in 1929 as a memorial to those who lost their lives here.

Since then, visitors have been reporting a variety of paranormal activity including the sound of galloping horses, and sightings of a headless confederate soldier and another soldier who is napping against a tree!

6. Harpers Ferry, Jefferson County

Harpers Ferry, Jefferson County

The town of Harpers Ferry is well known for its ghosts. In fact, some of the hauntings are said to go back hundreds of years!

There are various buildings around the town that have a spooky story or two attached to them making Harpers Ferry one of the most haunted towns in West Virginia.

One of the most popular tales involves a female spirit in 18th-century style attires who is often seen looking down at people from the window of Harper House.

There are often tales of several spirits including wounded soldiers and an old priest who are said to haunt St Peter’s Catholic Church, which was used as a hospital in the Civil War.

However, the most common experience is for visitors to hear the distant strains of fife and drum music which is said to be the phantom army performing some marching drills.

7. Morgantown, Monongalia County

Morgantown, Monongalia County

Morgantown stands on the site of the famous Decker’s Creek Massacre which occurred back in 1759.

A total of eight settlers were brutally slaughtered by Delaware Indians in approximately the center of what is now the city of Morgantown and home to West Virginia University.

With so much blood staining the land, it is no surprise that there are literally spirits wandering the streets of Morgantown.

The University in particular seems to attract plenty of paranormal activity with many of its buildings reported to be haunted.

The most famous of the campus ghosts is probably the spirit of Elizabeth Moore who was the original founder of the institute from which the university grew.

8. Blennerhassett Hotel, Parkersburg STAY HERE

Blennerhassett Hotel, Parkersburg

Blennerhassett Hotel in Parkersburg is one of the most haunted buildings in West Virginia.

The Queen Anne-style building is reportedly haunted by William Chancellor who was responsible for building the property in the late 1800s.

Guests staying at the hotel have claimed to encounter the ghosts of children playing in the hallways and others say that they have seen a man dressed in a tuxedo in the mirrors.

Staff at the hotel also say that mysterious knocking and other unexplained sounds are fairly commonplace.

The hotel even offers ghost tours as part of their ‘Haunted Parkersburg’ package deal!

9. West Virginia Penitentiary, Moundsville

West Virginia Penitentiary, Moundsville

West Virginia Penitentiary opened back in 1875 and it is widely regarded as being one of the most haunted prisons in the United States – it is definitely one of the most haunted places in West Virginia.

This prison has seen it all over the years including several riots, fires, and over 100 executions.

Even before it was closed, prisoners and guards experienced paranormal activity in the building and it has only escalated since the prison ceased operation.

Now visitors tend to see phantom inmates and shadow men along with unexplained noises, cold spots, disembodied voices, and agonizing screams.

This is not a place for the faint of heart that is for sure!

There are regular tours of the prison which offer the opportunity to check out the electric chair that has been nicknamed ‘Old Sparky’.

The bravest souls can also participate in an overnight stay!

10. Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston

The Gothic stone structure that is Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is somewhat infamous in the paranormal community!

Even looking at it from the outside you would probably assume that it is haunted just based on how it looks!

The building certainly lives up to expectations.

This is without a doubt one of the most haunted places in the state.

Construction on the asylum began in 1858 and originally it was built to house just 250 patients.

However, the facility reached its peak of around 2400 patients in the 1950s at which time they were terribly overcrowded and living in extremely poor conditions.

It closed down in 1994 and reopened as a tourist location.

It is now considered to be one of the most haunted locations in WV with visitors reporting all manner of unexplained activity including horrific screams, shadow figures, and slamming doors.

11. Sweet Springs Sanitarium, Sweet Springs

The Haunted Sweet Springs Sanitarium, West Virginia

Established in 1792 by Revolutionary War Veteran, William Lewis, the Sweet Springs Sanitarium was a mineral spring resort, where people from all over the

People would visit from all over West Virginia as they’d spend their summer months relaxing, and socializing. In the 1830s the current brick hotel was built, and business continued to boom up until the Civil War broke out.

During its heyday, the resort would welcome some of history’s most well-known, such as George Washington, Jerome Bonaparte, and General Robert E. Lee.

After the Civil War people continued to visit the resort, though numbers dwindled, with vacationers preferring to visit resorts closer to the railways. By 1930 financial trouble hit, and the resort had to close.

Between 1942-1945, the Sweet Springs Resort would operate as a sanitarium for tuberculosis patients, before turning into the Andrew S. Rowan retirement home in 1945.

Haunted by some of the thousands of people who died here during its life as a sanitarium and a retirement home, the resort has featured on numerous paranormal TV shows recently, including series 1 of Destination Fear, and Paranormal Lockdown.

When going to High School in Athens WV in the 60’s, we were told by friend who resided in True WV,about the huge mansion like property across from the graveyard.

There were many different reports made by different people about the goings on in that house. Also reports mad back then to families who bought the house and sold soon after residing in the house for a short time.

I have attempted to research the property as of the year 2000 and can not find anything abut this property. Please get back to me if you have discovered anything in reference to this property. I would very much appreciate it.

Thank you so very much.

6 Best Haunted Attractions in West Virginia

good haunted houses in wv

The hills and valleys of the Mountain State just lend themselves perfectly to hidden creatures and things that go bump in the night. Whether you like just a little bit of fear or a whole lot of screaming, follow our dark path to the 6 best haunted attractions in West Virginia. Among the haunts is a nursing home where patients check in but never leave, woods filled with zombies, and fields of vampires. A ghoulishly fun game of laser tag is on the list and there’s a hotel where residents are given peace and quiet—for all eternity. Pick your spot for frightful fun from among our list of sinister stops! 

Hospital of Horrors, Weston, WV

Hold on to your hats, ghouls and guys and get ready for some seriously scary fun at the Hospital of Horrors in Weston, West Virginia. Located inside what was once an asylum for the insane, you’ll encounter a mysterious doctor who seeks immortality by experimenting on unsuspecting people who enter in. Be warned, though. This hospital isn’t for the faint of heart and children under 13 are not allowed without an adult. Buy your tickets ahead and save time at the door. If you dare. 

Fright Nights, Daniels, WV

Halloween is almost here. Are you ready for the scare of your life? Then visit the top haunted attraction in Southern West Virginia and be scared out your wits. You can take a walk along the Appalachian Anarchy Haunted Trial where you never know who, or what, you’ll see. If that’s not enough for you, check out 3D Nightmare, a freaky show filled with special effects involving clowns and other things that go bump in the night. There’s also an interactive laser tag that takes you into the world of biohazards and several escape rooms in case you haven’t had your fill of adventure.

Miller’s Nightmare Haunted Farm, Lewisburg, WV

Jump on the night wagon for a ride into your worst nightmare. Travel down a backroad into darkness until you reach Miller Mansion. Something mysterious and very sinister happened there and has tainted everything around it. Watch out for things that pop up in the cornfield and just pray you make it out alive. 

House of the Setting Sun, Green Spring, WV

Organized by the citizens of Green Spring, West Virginia, this fun and interactive haunted house is not to be missed when you’re planning your Halloween hauntings. Located at 1313 Screamin’ Hollow Road, that should give you a clue that this is no ordinary haunted house. Follow the road lined with pumpkins for a scarefully-crafted adventure into fear. 

West Virginia Penitentiary, Moundsville, WV

Once a prison for the criminally insane, West Virginia Penitentiary sits as an eerie reminder of the unknown. What lurks behind those tall gothic walls? Do you have what it takes to find out? You might have the nerve to walk into the cold and dark stone building, but would you allow yourself to be locked in a cell or take a walk in the dungeon of horrors? Don’t worry, there will be “helpers” along the way.

Fear on the Farm, Winfield, WV

Zombies, vampires, and other scary creatures lurk everywhere in Winfield, West Virginia. Check out the Weeping Willow Nursing Home, where you’ll run into doctors who perform crazy experiments on the residents and the monsters they become. Take a walk outside on the Spooky Woods Trail, if you dare. The people who live around there are, well, different. Better watch the trail, though. People often don’t come back. Check out the escape rooms, Miners Revenge and The Saw, or play a gripping game of zombie laser tag with your friends and fellow ghouls. You can also take a bus and walking tour of the haunted part of Winfield.

Covid-19 update:.

Yes, Fear on the Farm will be open this year! We’ve been working hard & preparing for this upcoming season to scare you in the safest way possible. Given the current circumstances, we’ve had to make some changes this year to practice social distancing and operate our business following safety practices. Here is what we are planning:

We will be open Friday and Saturday December 18th and 19th from 7pm to 11pm.

  • All actors and staff will have a temperature check upon arrival.

  • Extra hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the event property.
  • Both of our coffin simulator rides will be closed this year to keep traffic congestion down and follow safety protocols.

5 of the most haunted locations in West Virginia

With as much history as West Virginia has, there is no surprise that there is no shortage of hauntings. For years, West Virginia residents have reported the paranormal all across the state. Some locations are more notable than others though. Many of them have developed quite the reputation over the years.

22 Mine Road, Logan County

In 1932, a prominent Logan County woman named Mamie Thurman was found murdered near the top of Trace Mountain in Logan County. She had been shot, stabbed, and left for dead on top of the mountain, but no one knew for sure who killed her. Speculation went on for years, and ultimately Clarence Stephenson was charged with her murder and sent to Moundsville to what is now the West Virginia State Penitentiary . Many believe Stephenson’s employer, Harry Robertson, was the real culprit, but there was never any evidence to prove it. Rumor has it that Mamie’s ghost haunts the mountain road that she was found on over 80 years ago. Some say she can be seen on top of the mountain, but legend has it that if you park your car in neutral at the bottom of 22 Mine Road, it will roll uphill. It is believed that this is the ghost of Mamie Thurman. Make your way to Logan County and see for yourself!  

Lewisburg was a prominent location in West Virginia during the Civil War. The Lewisburg Historic District is home to the Old Stone Church , which served as a hospital during the Civil War. Some say you can hear the screams of its patients if you listen close on a quiet night. There are also several spirits that have been reported at the General Lewis Inn . Lewisburg is home to one of the most famous spirits in American history, though! In 1897, Zona Heaster Shue was mysteriously murdered with no sign of who the killer was. Shue’s mother claims that Zona came to her at night several weeks after the funeral and revealed who the killer was and how he murdered her. Shue’s mother was able to convince local authorities to have another medical examination conducted, which revealed that Shue’s neck had been broken and she had been strangled. Shue’s husband was convicted of murder and sent to the West Virginia State Penitentiary in Moundsville . Zona’s appearance and ability to convince her mother to pursue another investigation has led her to be called the Greenbrier Ghost. A state historical marker was placed near the cemetery where Zona is buried in Greenbrier County . This is the only known case in which evidence provided by a spirit helped to convict the murderer!  

West Virginia State Penitentiary

The West Virginia State Penitentiary was opened in 1875, and many believe it to be one of the most haunted prisons in the United States. During its years of operation, the penitentiary was known to be one of the most violent in the country. There were many riots, fires, and around 100 executions while it was in use. Several diseases made their rounds as well, spreading like wildfire and killing many of the inmates. Visitors of the penitentiary have reported seeing figures of possible inmates and what most regard as the “shadow man” that stalks the halls. If you’re up for the scares, the penitentiary offers tours as well as overnight stays to ghost hunt! Every October, the prison holds a haunted house that is sure to give you your fill of frights as well!

19 surprisingly cool things to do in west virginia.

From the newest national park in the U.S. to the Mothman Museum, West Virginia is increasingly intriguing.

The Top Things to Do in West Virginia

The state that inspired John Denver's now-classic American anthem, does, in fact, feel a bit like Heaven (or at least what we imagine it to be). Yet it isn't a destination at top of many bucket lists, if it even has a place on those lists at all. It's time to change your mind.

Read on to discover the top things to do in West Virginia.

New River Gorge National Park and Preserve: Glen Jean

If there's only one place you can visit in West Virginia, let it be New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. Born out of a COVID-19 relief bill, New River Gorge became the nation's 63rd national park in December 2020. The area – which spans more than 70,000 acres – has long been a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Its 53-mile stretch of the New River (ironically one of the oldest rivers in the world) is famous for whitewater rafting, with beginner- and family-friendly tours and rapids up to Class V, widely considered some of the most challenging to navigate.

Of course, the park also offers other ways to take in its otherworldly landscape – think scenic driving routes, hiking, biking, climbing, fishing and free ranger-led activities including junior ranger programs. Accommodation options inside the park are limited to camping, but there are plenty of hotels and resorts within a short drive.

Bridge Walk: Lansing

Top things to do in West Virginia

Whatever you do in New River Gorge National Park and Preserve, don't miss the one-of-a-kind Bridge Walk, where guided tours are offered on a catwalk beneath the famous New River Gorge Bridge. The bridge towers 876 feet above the New River, but don't worry – guests are securely fastened to a cable, and tours move at a relaxed pace so you can feel comfortable (and stop for scenic views and photo ops along the way). Previous visitors say the Bridge Walk is a must in West Virginia, with some calling it a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Participants must be at least 8 years old.

If you're feeling extra brave after mastering this walkway, you can even come back for Bridge Day, West Virginia's largest single-day festival, where thousands gather every October to watch daredevils jump off the bridge into the gorge below.

Address: 57 County Route 85/9, Lansing, WV 25862

Hatfield-McCoy Trails

The infamously bizarre Hatfield-McCoy Feud that lasted nearly 30 years (and even inspired a dinner show in Pigeon Forge ) actually took place in West Virginia and Kentucky. Today, the region in which the feud took place is now the largest trail system on the East Coast, with 1,000 miles of wooded pathways, rolling hills and quintessential Appalachian towns to explore.

Waterfall Trail

Top things to do in West Virginia

In June 2022, West Virginia launched a statewide Waterfall Trail, allowing travelers to more easily navigate some of the state's 200-plus waterfalls with a free mobile passport – plus the chance to win prizes along the way. As of 2023, there are 38 trail stops in total. These include the famous Blackwater Falls, where the tannic acid of fallen hemlock and red spruce needles tints the water. Not surprisingly, it's one of West Virginia's most photographed destinations.

Watoga State Park

Watoga State Park was named a Dark Sky Park by the International Dark-Sky Association in 2021, along with the adjacent Calvin Price State Forest and nearby Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park. Travelers who want to catch a glimpse of the nighttime light show can opt for tent camping or cabin accommodations, spring through fall.

Address: 4800 Watoga Park Road, Marlinton, WV 24954

Adventures on the Gorge: Lansing

The ultimate experience in West Virginia, Adventures on the Gorge, is an award-winning adventure outfitter and resort on the rim of New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. The destination resort offers a dizzying array of outdoor activities, the most popular of which is whitewater rafting. Travelers rave about the half- and multi-day excursions for various skill levels, noting that the guides are friendly, helpful and all-around great. Adventure seekers can also enjoy zip lining and canopy tours (including a nighttime MoonTrek), rappelling, mountain biking, guided hikes, horseback riding, cave tours, laser tag and paintball. On Summersville Lake (the largest in West Virginia), there's kayaking, standup paddleboarding and multi-sport excursions that include a little bit of everything.

After an action-packed day, visitors can grab a bite to eat at any of the three on-site restaurants and retreat to their choice of accommodations, which include everything from cozy cabins to glamping tents with views of the New River Gorge Bridge and surrounding forest.

A National Historic Landmark, The Greenbrier served as a hospital for wounded soldiers during the Civil War and World War II. In 1778, it became "America's Resort," first hosting wealthy Southerners, then celebrities, U.S. presidents and even royalty. You don't have to be a guest of the luxury resort (or an A-lister) to get a glimpse of it – guided hotel tours are offered – but overnight guests enjoy upscale accommodations ranging from signature guest rooms to estate homes, a roster of activities for all ages, golf, a spa, restaurants, a casino, retail shops, seasonal events and more. Whether you splurge for an overnight stay or not, don't miss the Bunker Tour, where you'll discover a former emergency fallout shelter and top-secret government relocation facility for Congress from the Cold War period.

Address: 101 W. Main St., White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986

Lost World Caverns: Lewisburg

Top things to do in West Virginia

Go 120 feet underground to explore stalagmites (some of which measure up to 80 feet tall) and stalactites at Lost World Caverns. Self-guided tours typically take about 45 minutes and are appropriate for all ages, while the Wild Cave Tour for ages 10 and up takes visitors to undeveloped parts of the caverns over the course of several hours. This attraction, which was first discovered in 1942, also includes a museum and gift shop. Previous visitors highly recommend Lost World Caverns, cautioning that the caves can be slippery and difficult to traverse in some areas, so be sure to wear sturdy shoes and a light jacket .

Address: 907 Lost World Road, Lewisburg, WV 24901

Harpers Ferry

Top things to do in West Virginia

Perhaps the most well-known destination in West Virginia, Harpers Ferry is more than a quaint 19th-century town. It's a National Historic Park with Civil War sites including battlefields, remnants of campsites and, most notably, John Brown's Fort and the John Brown Museum. If you don't remember this one from history class, John Brown is the abolitionist credited with leading what's now known as the Harpers Ferry Raid, in which he attempted to start an armed revolt of enslaved people in 1859.

Harpers Ferry is also known as the psychological midpoint of the 2,178-mile Appalachian National Scenic Trail and, as such, attracts thru-hikers to the historic Lower Town's restaurants and nearby vacation rentals. Other highlights in Harper's Ferry include The Point, where you can see the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers; crossing the Potomac on a pedestrian bridge to access the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park towpath; and, better still, getting out on the waters in a river tube, cold drink in hand.

Berkeley Springs State Park: Berkeley Springs

Top things to do in West Virginia

Soak in the soothing springs of this state park, known for its warm waters, which maintain a comfortable temperature of 74.3 degrees Fahrenheit, and its bathhouses, where available spa services include massages and mineral baths. The springs date back centuries, first flourishing as a health mecca for Native Americans, then drawing European settlers beginning in 1730. Several years later, George Washington discovered the healing powers of the springs and began visiting them regularly. It is largely because of him that the place now known as Berkeley Springs State Park remains the popular wellness destination it is today. Visitors praise the park and surrounding town, noting that you can see the historic Berkeley Springs Castle (reserved for private events only) from here.

Address: 2 S. Washington St., Berkeley Springs, WV 25411

Mothman Museum: Point Pleasant

Top things to do in West Virginia

In 1966, two grave diggers in Clendenin, West Virginia, reported the sighting of a strange winged figure with red eyes. Shortly after the incident, local residents began to make similar claims, with many blaming the massive creature, nicknamed the Mothman, for the 1967 Silver Bridge collapse and subsequent death of 46 people. The story was so bizarre it captured the attention of Hollywood (resulting in "The Mothman Prophecies" movie, based on a book of the same name) and inspired the Mothman Museum in the town of Point Pleasant, where the mythical creature is said to reside. The museum features original newspaper clippings, handwritten police reports, props used in the 2002 film and more. The Mothman Statue stands 12 feet tall outside of the museum, and the Mothman Festival is hosted every September. Previous patrons of the museum say it's fun and interesting, and that admission – less than $5 for adults – is cheap.

After you explore this eerie museum, spend some time in Point Pleasant, an attraction in itself with great restaurants, shopping, seasonal events and the historic (and supposedly haunted) Lowe Hotel.

Address: 400 Main St., Point Pleasant, WV 25550

World's Largest Teapot: Chester

Top things to do in West Virginia

If you're road-tripping through West Virginia, consider making a stop at this quirky attraction, which measures 12 feet high and 44 feet wide. Before achieving fame, the "World's Largest Teapot" was created as a giant keg for Hires Root Beer and then installed as a snack stand at a mini-golf course in Pennsylvania. In 1938, a man named William "Babe" Devon brought it to Chester, West Virginia. He added a spout, lid and handle so he could use the newly revamped structure to promote the region's then-booming pottery industry, selling teapots and other souvenirs from its window. The teapot went out of business around 1980, was restored by the Chester City Council in 1990, and has sat at the junction of U.S. Route 30 and State Route 2 ever since.

West Virginia Penitentiary: Moundsville

Top things to do in West Virginia

During its 100-plus years in operation, the West Virginia Penitentiary saw riots, homicides and executions including public hangings. So it's no surprise that when the storied prison decommissioned in 1995, former prison guards began offering tours to the public. Current tour options include a Public Ghost Hunt and Private Paranormal Investigations, as the prison is said to be haunted by former inmates. You can even try your hand at an escape room game. Previous visitors confirm the prison tours are all at once creepy, informative and enjoyable. The West Virginia Penitentiary is so spooky that it's been featured in Netflix's "Mindhunter" (along with the town of Moundsville) and Hulu's "Castle Rock," among other TV shows and movies.

Address: 818 Jefferson Ave., Moundsville, WV 26041

Previous visitors say this Charleston museum is truly impressive, with some advising you'll need a few hours to see everything it has to offer. Bonus: As a state-operated attraction, the museum is free to enter. The West Virginia State Museum also manages a few historic sites throughout the state, including West Virginia Independence Hall and Camp Washington-Carver.

A small, family-operated coal mine and camp from roughly 1890 to 1910 that later became a commercial endeavor until it closed in 1953, the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine is now a highly rated attraction in West Virginia. Previous visitors say both kids and adults enjoy exploring the former coal mines with veteran miners, who lead guided tours in authentic "man trips," the cars used in mining operations. When you emerge from the tunnels, explore the Coal Camp, with restored original buildings including the Pemberton Coal Camp Church and the Helen Coal Camp School, then stop by the Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia, which features a planetarium and a recreated homestead from the late 19th century. Admission includes the tour and access to the camp and museum. The Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine is open from April to November, but bring a light jacket no matter when you visit as the mines can get chilly.

Address: 513 Ewart Ave., Beckley, WV 25801

Monongahela National Forest

Top things to do in West Virginia

Another nationally protected region in West Virginia, the Monongahela National Forest spans more than 919,000 acres in 10 counties over elevations that range from 1,000 to nearly 5,000 feet above sea level. Areas of interest include Spruce Knob-Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area, which features the highest peak in West Virginia, and the Dolly Sods Wilderness, notably the Bear Rocks trail. Both areas offer some of the best views in the state. Throughout the vast national forest there are ample hiking and biking trails, scenic driving routes, and places to stop for a picnic lunch. You can also go swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding and, if you'd like to stay a few days, camping in tents, RVs or on-site cabins. A visit in the winter affords opportunities for snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

NROCKS Outdoor Adventures

Copyright Speciale Photography

With so much rugged mountain landscape, it's no surprise that West Virginia has a Via Ferrata (a mountain route with permanently installed steel rungs and cables). Located near the Monongahela National Forest, NROCKS Outdoor Adventures offers guided rock-climbing tours of the Via Ferrata. Participants aged 13 and up gain 1,085 feet in elevation, cross a suspension bridge that is 150 feet high and 200 feet long, and reach exposed heights of 280 feet during the roughly 1-mile trek, which takes about 3.5 hours. Recent tourgoers say the experience is thrilling, though not for the faint of heart. For the ultimate adrenaline rush, nighttime tours are offered on select dates throughout the year.

Cass Scenic Railroad State Park: Cass

Top things to do in West Virginia

A remote destination in Pocahontas County, Cass was once a company town for loggers, who transported lumber via what's now known as the Cass Scenic Railroad.
