If you know, you know. West Virginia is one of the best states to explore the outdoors. The entire state is mountainous (yes, its nickname is The Mountain State) and this place truly is “almost heaven.” Cacapon Resort State Park sits in the shadows of the highest peak in the eastern portion of West Virginia. Named after a Shawnee Indian word meaning “medicine waters,” the area's mineral waters have been renowned throughout history for their healing powers.
Named after a Shawnee Indian word meaning “medicine waters,” the 6,000 acre park provides all the outdoorsy good stuff: swimming, fishing, birding, hiking and horseback riding. The park is also a resort, so if you’re looking to get your sports on, there’s golf, basketball and tennis to enjoy. Capacon even has a restaurant in the park lodge, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
