Tomlinson Run State Park is located near the top of West Virginia’s northern panhandle along the Ohio River. With unique camping accommodations, this park is one of the best camping spots in the state. In addition to traditional campsites, Tomlinson Run’s campground includes camper cabins and yurts. 


Tomlinson Run State Park’s campground is open spring through fall, weather permitting, and has a contact station, convenience store, dump station and two bathhouses with showers and laundry facilities. The campground includes 48 traditional campsites, five camper cabins and yurts.

All campsites are suitable for tents and trailers, and include picnic tables and grills fire rings. The park also has a rustic camping area ideal for Scouts.

Camper Cabins:

Tomlinson Run State Park has five camper cabins available to rent between April-October. Four camper cabins have electricity. One camper cabin has electric and water. All camper cabins are furnished and include a picnic table and fire ring.


Though generally classified as a tent, the yurt is much stronger and weather-tight. Our yurts are a circular structure that consist of a durable fabric cover, tension band and a wood frame that includes a lattice wall, radial rafters, central compression ring and a framed door.

Yurt rentals are a unique offering only at Tomlinson Run and are perfect for the novice camper. You may rent a five-person yurt, complete with a cooler, a propane stove, lantern, picnic table and cookware, and one set of bunk beds. Two yurt sites are available at the park.


Need an area for a picnic or family get-together? The park offers four picnic shelters which can be reserved by the day for a modest fee. Otherwise, picnic shelters are available on a first-come, first served basis, so be sure to reserve in advance if you’ve got something special planned!

    I definitely recommend Tomlinson Run State Park. We went camping for a weekend and I didn't want to leave. So relaxing. The campsites are spacious and clean. There are fun activities to do like mini golf, the pool area, hiking trails and paddle boats just to name a few. The staff are friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Go check it out!

    Was only there long enough to drop off a kid for camp. The pool looks great. Clean cabin area. Excited to hear what my daughter thinks when I pick her up.

    Family went camping and swimming. Was decent with exception of rude campers on site next to ours. Will plan better next time. Be sure to take anything you might possibly need. There is a small store but not cheap.

    Nice and quiet. A great place for families, everyone there was so kind and welcoming, staff, and guests. We stayed in a yurt, it was a fun experience. We will definitely be back!
