Description - **Information provivded by West Virginia Division of Natural Resources**
Nestled in the heart of West Virginia, Cedar Creek State Park's 2,483 lush acres are just 25 miles west of Interstate 79. This pastoral setting of rolling hills and wide valleys provides an ideal backdrop for a wide variety of recreational opportunities from cycling to pleasant family strolls.
One of the unique aspects of the campground is the check-in station, a restored log cabin which was formerly a Gilmer County historical landmark. Further adding to the charming ambience of the park, a reconstructed one-room schoolhouse has been erected as a testimonial to the early years of education. The schoolhouse has been faithfully restored complete with student desks, inkwells and a potbellied stove. Guided tours of this nostalgic attraction are offered on Saturdays during the summer months.

Climate - West Virginia experiences four distinct seasons, none of which are extreme. Temperatures in the highlands of the Allegheny Mountains are somewhat more severe than the rest of the state. Generally temperatures during the winter months range from 15 to 40 degrees F. Ample snow accumulation provides for cross-country and downhill skiing opportunities. Spring brings blooming trees and shrubs to the forested regions of the state, as well as warmer temperatures. During this season, March through May, expect mild temperatures between 45 and 70 degrees F. Summers are normally hot with high humidity, especially at lower elevations. Expect temperatures to range from 70 at night to 95 during the dog days of August. Fall brings cool, crisp air to West Virginia and spectacular foliage color changes. Bring a light jacket for this season, which brings temperatures between 35, at night, to 70 degrees F, during the day.
From Interstate 79, take the Burnsville/Glenville exit and follow West Virginia Rt. 5 west to Glenville. The park is located south of Glenville and four miles east of US route 33/119.
