Headquartered at Clifftop, Babcock State Park is best known for the much-photographed Glade Creek Grist Mill. Actually, the mill isn't new; this fully operable mill, completed in 1976, is a replica of the original mill, known as Cooper's Mill. The current mill was created by combining parts from several old mills that at one time existed throughout the state, according to the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.

While the mill and Glade Creek may get the lion's share of media attention, there's much more to this 4,127-acre park, such as miles of scenic hiking trails with fantastic views of the New River Gorge National River. For overnight stays, there are 28 cabins and a 52-unit campground.
