Tomlinson Run State Park is located near the top of West Virginia’s northern panhandle along the Ohio River. The park features a wide array of recreational activities including hiking, fishing, boating and swimming. 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!

    Beautiful campground with lots of wildlife and things to do close by. We had to work at leveling our rig on the gravel pad, but the site is perfect with deer walking through. Enjoyed a walk around the park where we saw the owl. We are looking forward to trying the pool, disc golf course, and taking in a drive-in movie. Worthwhile adventure for sure!

    Try the moni golf. It looks boring and easy but don't judge a book by its cover. I love dunking my feet in water at the paddle boats. Overall, it's just a relaxing experience and a beautiful day.

    Tomlinson Run Park is a wonderful park to relax and enjoy the day. They have multiple trails to walk, playgrounds, an outdoor pool, multiple camp sites, a boat dock, and countless other things I didn't mention. We love spending a Saturday or Sunday in nature. It's a great way to decompress from our electronic devices.

    We've been coming here for years, since I was a boy, camping, swimming, golfing, fishing, you name it! Every year we rent the biggest cabin on site, and every year we have a blast, but this year they made us tear down our tent that my teenager set up because she wanted some privacy and in the rules it states that you can have up to two small tents per site at the supervisors discretion but the supervisor informed us that there is no tents allowed at the cabin sites even though it does not state that in the rules at all and they made us pay an extra $100 for my daughter to set up a tent beside us and they would not budge at all and it clearly states in the rules that you can have one or two small tents but short of leaving and losing all of my deposit or making my daughter uncomfortable we were forced to pay the extra money so that we could enjoy our vacation as intended and it's sad because they they know that you're going to pay the money just like how it's illegal to collect firewood and you can't even bring your own firewood even though that's not in the rules and the only way to have a fire is to buy their $6 bundles of wood that burn up in 4 minutes it's seriously a shame and unfortunately I don't think we'll ever be back! The people that run the park are great people but whoever makes the rules as they go needs to be let go smh
