“serene, yet rugged 4,127 acres”

Babcock State Park offers its guests 4,127 acres of serene, yet rugged beauty, a fast flowing trout stream in a boulder-strewn canyon and mountainous vistas to be viewed from several scenic overlooks.  All of this variety is located adjacent to the New River Gorge National 'River and the heart of the whitewater rafting industry of West Virginia. The Glade Creek Grist Mill is a new mill that was completed in 1976 at Babcock.  Fully operable, this mill was built as a re-creation of one which once ground grain on Glade Creek long before Babcock became a state park.  Known as Cooper's Mill, it stood on the present location of the park's administration building parking lot.Of special interest, the mill was created by combining parts and pieces from three mills which once dotted the state. The basic structure of the mill came from the Stoney Creek Grist Mill which dates back to 1890.  It was dismantled and moved piece by piece to Babcock from a spot near Campbelltown in Pocahontas County.  After an accidental fire destroyed the Spring Run Grist Mill near Petersburg, Grant County, only the overshot water wheel could be salvaged.  Other parts for the mill came from the Onego Grist Mill near Seneca Rocks in Pendleton County.A living monument to the over 500 mills which thrived in West Virginia at the turn of the century, the Glade Creek Grist Mill provides freshly ground cornmeal which park guests may purchase depending on availability and stream conditions.  Visitors to the mill may journey back to the time when grinding grain by a rushing stream was a way of life, and the groaning mill wheel was music to the miller's ear. Basic Wi-Fi service is available at both the Campground and the parking area around the Administration Building.  Most cellphone carriers have decent coverage. AT&T has better than average signal in the campground and the majority of the park property.  Vacationers at Babcock may select from among 13 standard log cabins located by Glade Creek (trout stream) - (may require access by as many as 65 steps), five standard cabins of frame construction, eight Economy Cabins and two Vacation accessible cabins.  Each standard cabin features a wood burning fireplace, fully equipped kitchen and bath with shower.  All cabins feature electric lighting, modern appliances, and are completely equipped for housekeeping including cooking utensils, dishes, flatware, bed linens, and towels. Economy Cabins are 'tiny houses' with a combination of living/dining/bedroom with built-in double bunks or single size bunks, small bath with shower, and a screened in porch. Deluxe accessible cabins are very modern and have heating/air conditioning as well as gas fireplace and HDTV. All of our cabin's open in Mid-April and close the last week of October, weather permitting.

Great spot for photos and relaxing. The whole area is beautiful. Hawks Nest State Park up the road is really nice for a view and a bite to eat looking over the gorge in their restaurant.
