Beech Fork State Park RV & Campground Guide

West Virginia

Located in southwestern West Virginia hills, Beech Fork State Park features 3,144 acres of recreational fun with miles of hiking trails, exciting lake activities, and hundreds of campsites. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers created the lake in the 1970s by damming the Beech and Miller forks of Twelvepole Creek near Lavalette. This park is highly trafficked by both locals and tourists as it's known for water recreation, forest hardwoods, and natural habitat. Visitors can look forward to spotting foxes, whitetail deer, black bears, and other small game species. Birdwatchers may get the chance to view migratory waterfowl or neo-tropical songbirds. The state park is just a short 12-mile drive from Barboursville and Huntington, making it ideal for visitors from neighboring cities to come and enjoy the day.
