Hawks Nest State Park
Nestled in the heart of whitewater rafting country, Hawks Nest State Park
encompasses 276 acres bordering a rugged section of the New River Gorge National River. Long known for its panoramic views, the park offers a modern, 31 room lodge for the comfort of overnight guests. Below the lodge, the New River forms peaceful Hawks Nest Lake. Above the lake, the narrow canyon and rushing water create one of the most challenging whitewater boating
waterways in the nation.
Looking for a great alternative to a raft trip, New River Jet Boat Rides get you on the river and it's lots of fun without the danger factor. It's also the best way to see the New River Gorge Bridge. Buy your tickets at Hawks Nest State Park, and the fun begins at the aerial tram ride down to the dock. Your captain will then take you up river and give you great info about the history of the gorge.
