Tomlinson Run State Park

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The family would enjoy Tomlinson Run State Park, located in central Hancock County about 10 miles from Weirton. It has miles of hiking trails, camping and picnic facilities, and a large outdoor swimming pool.

Located at the extreme tip of West Virginia's northern panhandle, Tomlinson Run provides a wide range of recreational opportunites 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.

Things to Do


Over 33 acres of water in the form of various ponds and lakes offer excellent fishing for bass, catfish, bluegill and trout. Also a part of the water-oriented activities at the park are boat docks where rental row and paddleboats are offered for your enjoyment.

Swimming Pool and Water Slide

Tomlinson Run's recreational facilities include a swimming pool with a waterslide/bathhouse complex and snack bar. The swimming pool is open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day from noon until 7:30 p.m. The pool boasts a 182-foot figure eight-shaped water slide. Rates for swimming at Tomlinson Run State Park are $5 for adults and $4 for swimmers under 12 years of age. Days of operation in the later part of August may vary based on availability of lifeguards.
