Tygart Lake State Park may very well be the perfect vacation destination. The Tygart Lodge is a year-round 20-room facility providing panorama views of Tygart Lake. There are also seasonal cabins and camping areas open from April to December (call ahead for reservations and specific dates of operation). Eateries like the Boston Beanery Restaurant and Tavern provide you with dining pleasure at breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any time you get a hankering for something good to eat. While there, you can relax and revel in the view of the lake while enjoying your meal.
Recreationally, the park offers five hiking trails that take you from lakeside into the back-country wilderness of Barbour County. Bird watchers should be sure to call the park for information on the Bird Banding Weekends during the annual spring and fall migrations. Naturalists, parents, and school officials can call ahead to get the schedule of free nature programs and activities.
If you like to fish, this is the place to line-snag your favorite lake species from the comfort of a boat. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at kayaking or canoeing, but have been intimidated by the white water of various rivers, the calm of Tygart Lake is the perfect place to “get your feet wet” and try out a new adventure.
