HINTON is the southern gateway to New River Gorge National River.  The town has a large historic district, railroad museum, antique shops, and restaurants. After crossing the bridge at Hinton you will begin driving alongside the New River down River Road. There are great riverside vistas from the property and along the scenic highway.  A favorite route for a casual drive along the waterfront.   Boaters, motorcyclists, fishermen and vehicle cruises on the roadway and the river are a common sight.  Nestled in the foothills of the Allegheny mountains lies a place where the rivers flow and the eagles soar. A place where small town charm is around every corner and outdoor recreation is the norm. A place where porch sitting is earned after days spent hiking, biking, boating, and fishing. It is a place that remembers its past, and looks towards the future.

NEW RIVER GORGE NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE is known for its 53 miles of free flowing whitewater that cuts through sandstone cliffs towering as high as 1,000 feet in the air. It boasts class III through V rapids and plenty of boulders to keep even the most experienced rafters engaged. The upper part of the river is calmer and more welcoming to new rafters. The area also boasts more than 1,500 climbing routes, as well as a 12.8-mile system of mountain bike trails built by the Boy Scouts.  The New River Gorge itself is about an hour’s drive from Charleston, West Virginia. It encompasses about 7,000 acres marked with trailheads and visitor centers, and another 65,000 for backcountry hunting. White-tailed deer, river otters, and bald eagles are among the wildlife regularly spotted here.

BLUESTONE DAM spans the New River, forming Bluestone Lake, the third largest lake in West Virginia. With a 2,040 acre surface area, the lake provides boaters, water skiers, and fishermen with great recreational opportunities. The State of West Virginia operates Bluestone State Park with cabin rentals, picnicking and camping facilities. Also, a swimming pool, gift shop, two boat ramps, and a marina are operated for the convenience of the visitors. Camping opportunities are also available at the state’s Bluestone Lake Wildlife Management Area.
