Deriving its name from two feuding families that have become part of popular culture, the Hatfield-McCoy region of southern West Virginia has a rich history that visitors can discover through a wealth of attractions. Also beckoning groups is a mountainous landscape with an abundance of outdoor adventures.
Recreation enthusiasts flock to Chief Logan State Park, one of the most visited parks in West Virginia. It offers hiking trails, picnic shelters, playgrounds, campsites and a wildlife center, plus hiking, fishing and swimming. Guests at the park’s 75-room lodge enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast and such amenities as an indoor pool, hot tub and fitness room.
At the park’s amphitheater, the Aracoma Story, Inc., West Virginia’s longest-running outdoor theater company, presents live performances, including the The Aracoma Story. Based on historical facts and local legend, it tells the romantic tale of Princess Aracoma and British soldier Boling Baker. Groups of 15 or more may purchase discounted tickets.
