Grandview State Park
Part of the New River Gorge National River since 1990, Grandview was established in 1935 as a state park six air-miles northeast of Beckley, WV, in Raleigh County. The park and the adjacent community of Grandview take their names from sandstone cliffs here that provide spectacular views of the New River Gorge. Its "Main Overlook," the focus of the park, provides one of the most famous panoramic vistas in West Virginia. Its "North Overlook" and "Turkey Spur Rock" observation areas are also among the park's popular overlooks.
In summer, the park's Cliffside Amphitheatre hosts the historical outdoor dramas "Hatfields & McCoys" and "Honey in the Rock," musical re-tellings of the greatest of Appalachian feuds and of the formation of West Virginia during the Civil War.
