Owner description: Scenic park in Marion County that shows the grandeur of the wild Tygart Valley River flowing through steep canyons.
Reviewed 19 June 2012

A small well maintained state park that is worth the back-road trip to access it. The falls and rocky river are impressive and relaxing if you have time to spend.

You cannot wade or swim in the river and there is a fine of $167 if you are caught. This may explain why there are no crowds. Once you have seen it, there is no reason to return unless you are there for recreation or a picnic.

The park closes at dusk.

We pulled into the parking lot on Memorial Day and couldn't believe that there were only two other cars there. It was a short walk downhill to the park along the river and to the falls. They were beautiful. They were loud and a pretty green color. I got some great photos.
We saw two men fishing, but they didn't seem to be having any luck. Maybe fishing was just an excuse to enjoy the beauty.
The restrooms were decent and the park ranger was helpful.
If you get a chance to see Valley Falls, do it.
