Must see · State Park · Nature / Park
Chief Logan State Park is located on 3,988 acres (1,614 ha) about 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Logan in Logan County, West Virginia, United States. The park, the town and the county were all named after Chief Logan, a Mingo (or Ohio Iroquois) Native American leader who lived in the region before the American Revolutionary War. Each summer the Liz Spurlock Amphitheater at Chief Logan State Park is the site for outdoor dramas, including the historical drama "The Aracoma Story" about Shawnee tribal members who lived at the present-day location of the town of Logan. The outdoor drama theater produces the Aracoma story and 2-3 other plays or musicals every year.

The new Chief Logan Lodge and Conference Center opened at the park during the summer of 2006. This past year they built 3 cabins on site. There is also a fishing pond on site and a recreation center that has weights, exercise machines, courts and an Olympic sized indoor pool.

  • I was with friends on our way down to Matewan, WV and, to break up the drive a bit, we stopped at Chief Logan State Park to do what we thought would be about a mile-long hike. We chose the Coal Mine.....  more »

  • I'm from Ohio, and I loved visiting this Park. I was blessed to see the Mama Mia in the outdoor playhouse theater. It was amazing! The Actors were wonderful and such beautiful singers! They really worked hard and I'm very proud of their hard work and commitment!! I loved the spacious walk way between the seating sections. I enjoyed the affordable snacks as well. It's definitely a must for the entire family!
  • Very nice location, lots to see and do, many well marked trails for hiking (and a couple that aren't well marked!). Staff are friendly and seem to want to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The only thing that keeps it from getting 5 stars is that the bathhouse needs some serious attention, the putt putt course needs resurfacing and fire pits need to be cleaned out.. Bathhouse: Poor lighting, bad ventilation, and the whole place needs pressure washed inside. I understand that they can't keep on top of it all the time, or why some young male juveniles insist on writing on the wall in their own feces, but this is easily removed with some spray and a sponge! But again, camp sites are nice, people are friendly, there is a pool, putt putt, basketball, tennis court, several play areas with playground equipment, shelters, and it is QUIET!!! No noise from nearby roads! We will visit again, hopefully the park monitors reviews.
