Explore Your Home Away From Home

Whether you’re looking for an adventure or a cultural experience look no further than Tucker County.

This area is home to charming towns, outdoor experiences, delicious dining opportunities, scenic drives as well as the iconic Blackwater Falls State Park. Here you can take in the beauty of the 57-foot cascade of Blackwater Falls, made more beautiful in the winter when it’s frozen over. Explore Canaan Valley Resort State Park and Timberline Mountain, two ski resorts just minutes from each other. Canaan Valley offers 47 exciting trails and the newly renovated Timberline Mountain features 1,000 feet of vertical drop — it’s a snow lover’s paradise.
