  • Great visit with this little state park. West Virginia amazes me with its quality of parks. Good little museum, with guided tour. Nicely managed with gift shop.  more »
  • Great place to visit and hear the history of the Prickett family and see all the great history inside the fort. All money goes back into the fort to keep it running.  more »

  • Was here for a half marathon on local paths and trails. The museum was closed for the weekend (in January). But it looked very informative and realistic. Grounds and restrooms were clean, pleanty of parking in overflow lots a short walk away if main lot is full. Nice views of the river. Located on a rolling hillside so not a place for kids to play soccer at and no playground area. Picnic tables available and on the trails just a short walk away. Trails suitable for strollers or wheelchairs.
  • Go see this place it's very magical. Make you feel like a pilgrim. I had a blast it's a must see.
