Foodies, photographers, and history buffs alike can get down with West Virginia’s Babcock State park. The Glade Creek Grist Mill on the park grounds has had its picture taken more than pretty much any other monument in the state, it’s a replica of the old Cooper’s Mill and an homage to the state’s milling history, and it’s fully operational to this day—you can buy cornmeal and buckwheat produced on site at the park’s gift shop! And if that doesn’t keep you busy, there are 4,127 acres of rugged boulder-filled canyons, gushing trout streams, and serene mountain vistas to hike to. Alongside the New River Gorge National River, Babcock is at the heart of West Virginia’s whitewater rafting industry. You can rent paddleboats, rowboats, and canoes at the Boley Lake marina, get competitive at the volleyball, tennis, and basketball courts, or saddle up a pony and check out the 20 miles of trails on horseback. Wallet-friendly tip: if you’ve got flexible dates for your trip, come at the end of summer to take advantage of the park’s Awesome August cabin specials!
