TOMLINSON RUN STATE PARK
Located at the extreme tip of West Virginia's norther panhandle, Tomlinson Run provides a wide range of recreational opportunities to a large number of local and out-of-state visitors.
The park's 1,398 acres extend along the stream from which it gets its name, both of which are named for a family of early settlers, to within a mile of the stream's confluence with the Ohio River.
Roughly divided into two sections, the park offers a wilderness area of heavily forested hills, overhanging cliffs of sandstone and shale, and a profusion of wildflowers and fauna. Featured within the developed areas of the park are picnicking, boating, miniature golf, basketball and volleyball courts, swimming, a campground and a group camp. In addition, program events are scheduled from April through October.
Tomlinson Run offers a 54-site campground with contact station, convenience store, dump station, and two bathhouses featuring hot showers and laundry facilities. All sites are suitable for tent or trailer and feature picnic tables and grills; while 39 sites feature electric hookups. Open April 1st through October 31.
There is also a Rustic Camping Area which is offered as a great area for scouts and other groups looking to rough it.

Yurt Rentals at Campground What is a Yurt?Though generally classified as a tent, the yurt is much stronger and weather-tight.

Yurt Rental is a unique offering only at Tomlinson Run and is perfect for the novice camper. You may rent a 2 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.
Yurt reservations are accepted beginning February 15 by mail only for the period from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day and are handled in the same manner as a regular campsite rental.
