These Pools are Calling Your Name this Summer

Do you want to know the best way to escape sweltering summer days in West Virginia? Taking a swim in any of these five pools will do the trick.

Canaan Valley Outdoor Pool

This pool is placed in the beautiful, rolling hills of Almost Heaven. If you’re looking for the perfect location to unplug, relax and unwind, the outdoor pool at Canaan Valley Resort is made for just that.

Soak in the natural beauty of the state while sitting pool-side, you might even see the wildlife that is so prevalent here.

Splash Zone

It’s more than just a swimming pool. The Splash Zone in Clarksburg is a large aquatic complex that will keep kids of all ages entertained for hours. It includes a lazy river, six water slides, “funbrellas,” and a padded play area for smaller children. But that’s not all—Splash Zone also features a 25-meter competition pool for the more serious swimmer.

Be sure to bring sunscreen; you will likely be there all day long.

Pipestem Splash Park & Adventure Lake

Cool off at Pipestem with brand new water acitivites – like 15 different spraying, dumping, and playing water installations. Plus, there are 12 giant inflatables, a sandy beach area with lounge chairs, and more. The splash park and adventure lake are open Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Bavarian Inn Infinity Pool

Get an amazing view of the Potomac River while taking a dip in the Bavarian Inn’s infinity pool. You’ll have the best seat to take in the winding river and the mountains just beyond that.

Come to the pool early and stay late. The views are breathtaking all day long and the pool-side bar is open until 10.

Water Ways Waterpark

Located in Julian, Water Ways is a place the whole family will enjoy. The waterpark has five total slides, with one of them being a tube slide that empties into a lazy river. Equipped with slides, swings and even a water umbrella– Kiddy Island is a section of Water Ways that will especially appeal to toddlers and young children. 

Pack a picnic, bring a blanket and stay all day. Water Ways allows guests to bring coolers to the park.

The Greenbrier

For 7,000 square feet of heated water, head to the indoor infinity pool at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs. Built in 1912, the pool perfectly encapsulates the resort’s historic roots. When you and the kids are hungry, Tree Tops Cafe is the place to grab a quick snack. This swimmer’s paradise is a luxurious alternative when the outdoor pool is closed from mid-October to April. Come to the Greenbrier and swim where the water is just fine.
