    1. Hi Deborah!

      Here’s the information the park provides about nearby lodging:
      “The park does not have any lodging facilities, but motels, cabins, and bed & breakfasts are available in surrounding towns. Hawks Nest and Pipestem Resort State Parks have lodges, and Babcock, Bluestone, and Pipestem Resort State Parks have cabins. For a listing of accommodations, call the West Virginia Division of Tourism at 1-800-CALLWVA, the Southern West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1-800-VISITWV, or the New River CVB at 1-800-927-0263.”

      Here’s a link to The New River Gorge Convention and Visitors Bureau, which has a lot of great lodging information: https://newrivergorgecvb.com/

      We’re planning to add more information soon to our park pages, but until then, we hope this helps!
