The beautiful Hawks Nest State Park is located in Fayette County, West Virginia.

This is the site of the tragic Hawks Nest incident where many miners became sick after being exposed to silica and developing a bad lung infection, sillicosis, as a result. The park is now a luscious and green space for visitors to relax.

The area features such activities and accommodations as a 31 room lodge, restaurant, aerial tram, golf course, pool, hiking trails, nature center, picnic area and gift shop. Wifi is also located throughout the park and has no access fees.

The Hawks Nest Lodge is the place to stay here and has cabins to greet you once you arrive. There are also many special events here including dinners, theater and others.
