Located in the mountains of Pocahontas County, Watoga State Park is West Virginia’s largest state park. With 10,100 acres of land, Watoga is filled with many recreational activities including hiking, swimming, fishing and boating. Watoga Lake is known for excellent fishing opportunities and is part of the Division of Natural Resources’ stocking program. A multipurpose building, museum and observation tower are just a few of the unique attractions at Watoga State Park.
In October 2021, the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) awarded Watoga State Park with official Dark Sky Park status. Watoga is a beautiful destination to camp beneath a brilliant Almost Heaven starry sky.
