Sandstone Falls

Reviewed By Thomas B - Westerville, Ohio

My wife and I were visiting the area and wanted to enjoy all the sights in the Fayetteville, WV area. If you are not familiar with the area, make sure you stop at the Sandstone Visitor Center for directions so that you know how to get to the falls. You will need to drive to Hinton, WV, cross the bridge and take a small road back north to the falls. In many places the road is quite narrow, so be careful, but he trip is worth the effort. The full width of the river crosses sandstone cliffs creating many falls. You can see these from a short trail as well as longer trails. Fishing is available too.

Bluestone State Park

Reviewed By THANKFULforVACATIONS - Springfield, Illinois

We stayed on Site 29, level, woody, which means no grass, which means mostly gravel/dirt, good spacing
Bathroom and showers old and run down, clean but yucky-looking.
We like to stay on water, or at least have a view of the water. I’m finding I can’t trust the campground maps, or descriptions. The only spots on the water have no hook ups. Nice gift shop in office.
No Air TV, had cell service (AT&T), wi-fi only available in office, which is over a mile from campsites.

Sanstone Visitor Center

Reviewed By Tonya C - Winston Salem, North Carolina

Usually I breeze through Visitors Centers and look at the photos and some of the artifacts, but this center was different. A large portion of the center is devoted to educating people about the environment and the importance of rivers and freshwater. I also enjoyed the interactive areas. For example, various bird nests on display with photos of the bird type. Other features of the center were facts about WV. I suggest stopping in and spending about 30 minutes,

Another stop during our New River Train layover in Hinton. The teenagers working at the Ritz were very helpful and accommodated our request to see this beautiful building which was in spotless condition. Their hospitality was much appreciated.

Otter and Oak

Reviewed By MrsN1704 - Fort Wayne, Indiana

This shop is in an old bank, so it is very pretty on the inside. It is filled with lots of cute candles, knick knacks and antiques. My husband's favorite was the candy though, he couldn't resist. The shop keeper was very friendly as well. Don't overlook that there is a second floor with art work and larger antiques. And the coke machine isn't for sale -lol.
