This park is situated in the southeast portion of the state, less than 20 miles from the border with Virginia. Its claim to fame is that it is one of the largest state parks in West Virginia. Though the tiny hamlet of Seebert sits just outside the park's boundaries, this is a very rural part of the state. The larger town of Lewisburg is almost 40 miles to the southwest, while the larger cities of Charleston, WV, and Roanoke, VA are both around 120 miles to the west and south, respectively.

The park is located in a forested, hilly region on the outskirts of the George Washington, and Jefferson National Forests. It is open throughout the year and allows visitors the chance to enjoy hiking, camping, and picnicking. A lake provides for opportunities such as fishing and water sports, and there's also a museum and observation tower on-site.
