Tu-Endie-Wei State Park is located at the confluence of the Kanawha River and the Ohio River in downtown Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The park commemorates the Battle of Point Pleasant, fought between the settler militia of Virginia and the forces of Shawnee Chief Cornstalk on October 10, 1774.

I didn’t do my homework before arriving here so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We got here from Houston and I have to say that this is a beautiful little park! We had a nice visit, walked over to the Mothman Museum, got some ice cream in a furniture store, went to a river festival where a crazy rainstorm popped up and drenched us. Coming from Houston where it’s about 103 degrees, I enjoyed the cold rain.
This is a beautiful park, nice atmosphere, great place to watch the river flow by. The only downside to this place is, people don't clean up after their dog's. They let them use the park for a bathroom, and make no effort to clean up after them. There was a lady that lived across the street from the park, and even though she had a large backyard, she still took her dog to poop in the park. 😡
