Visitor Centers

Welcome to Pocahontas County, West Virginia! We are a four-season destination overflowing with endless adventures, scenic vistas and fun the entire family can enjoy. While the journey into Pocahontas County is breathtakingly beautiful, it’s remote location nestled in the West Virginia hills makes connectivity a bit of a challenge. We ask all visitors to visit our Maps & Directions page for more information on how best travel practices to Nature’s Mountain Playground. The Pocahontas County CVB has six satellite Visitor Centers where guests can stop throughout their travels for more information and top-notch hospitality from our Information Specialists.
