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.

Blackwater Falls State Park reviews
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.

Blackwater Falls was amazing! I would suggest going as early as possible when the state park opens. This is a very busy waterfall at the state park. It is very easy to get to with multiple observation decks along the way. Tons of hiking trails that have beautiful views and a lake to visit as well. They also have camping if interested. The gift store was very cool with lots of great gift ideas.
We visited this gem on our anniversary weekend this past weekend. Our first stop before we even checked into our cabin, was the falls, and it was totally worth the trip. It is easily visible from the top, but if you’re willing and able to do some steps, it is totally worth the walk. The views from the different boardwalk viewing areas are stunning. There is no hiking, just stairs, so you don’t even need to change into your hiking boots. A little tip we got from the locals, “Go back after the rains”. So we went back on Sunday morning right before heading home, and it was totally worth the trip. We just happened to get a couple inches of snow Saturday night. Between that, and the difference in the pressure of the falls because of the rain, it was like a totally different place (as you can see in the pictures) We were so glad we took the time to go back! This was the highlight of our trip!
