Holly River State Park Logo


The dense forests of Holly River State Park provide guests with a natural feeling of peaceful solitude. Located near the center of the state in Webster County, it is far from the hustle and bustle of city life making it a perfect vacation getaway.

Holly River is the second largest park in the West Virginia park system with a total of 8,101 acres. Nestled in a narrow valley, the park is surrounded by heavily forested mountains some reaching heights of over 2,800 feet.

In the midst of this woodland paradise, park guests will find a myriad of recreational opportunities. Playing tennis, surrounding yourself  with nature on one of the hiking trails, or just soaking up the sun by the swimming pool--all of these spell Holly River State Park.

Holly River State Park is open, however the cabins and campground are seasonal and not available for rental in winter months.  The park office takes phone calls for reservations for dates cabins, campsites and picnic shelters are open.  Click our menu tabs for more information.

There is wireless service at Holly River office and restaurant for public use.  The park overall has limited cell or wireless service, but we’re pleased to have installed a workable solution for wireless access at these locations for our guests and to advance our communication capabilities.

It's Electric! Upgrades at Holly River continue.

During the 2015 camping season, electric service upgrades will be performed throughout the campground at Holly River State Park.  This work is scheduled and anticipated to be performed March 16 through July 16, 2015.

Guests staying in the campground at Holly River may experience periodic interruptions in electric power service.  Cabins, swimming pool, park office, and restaurant should remain unaffected.

Every effort will be made to keep this interruption of services and any related disturbances to guests at a minimum. 

During the upgrade time frame:

  • Guests may be asked to relocate from one campsite to another depending upon the schedule and needs of the service contractor. Portions of the campground may be closed at times.
  • Access through the campground on park roadways may be interrupted or re-routed due to service contractor work.


  • Reservations will be taken for the 2015 camping season as usual; however campground section and individual campsite numbers will not be guaranteed.

Thank you.
