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 two to three other plays or musicals every year.

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

  • The Christmas light show was amazing! We live in NC and have visited many light shoes but this one was wonderful. The variety of light displays, many we have never seen anywhere else was so...

  • Drove through the Park as we were staying nearby in the Lodge. Park was set up for Christmas Light Display starting Thanksgiving. Park and playgrounds were well kept.

  • Great park for a small town. Lots of trails to hike if you’re in to that. There’s also a nice fishing pond. Last I checked they had some animal enclosures where you could stop by and see black bears, bob cats, multiple species of snakes, and even a red tail hawk. It’s pretty interesting and fun if you’re into that kinda thing. They have a public pool which isn’t too bad. It has two diving boards one is small and one it bigger. It also has a decent water slide to go down. The pool starts off at 3ft deep and goes all the way up to 11ft which is where the diving boards are located. Plus they have a kid size pool for toddlers and people who just want to get their feet wet. They also serve food. It can be pretty expensive to eat there but it’s decently good. They always have life guards on duty so everyone should feel safe. Plus you have to take 15 minute breaks every so often. The park also has a miniature golf course which is a lot of fun. Plus tennis courts and basketball courts. There’s also a camp ground for tents and RV/Campers. The staff and rangers are very pleasant when dealing with them. You always see deer and other animals. I’ve even had one walk up to me a long time ago which was epic. So I’d definitely recommend stopping by and checking out this park if you ever have the time.
  • Enjoyed the Christmas lights. Best around close by for driving through. Long love to see Santa so we opted to skip that.
