I had been here when I was a young boy with my mother and now I enjoy going back with my children. This is a very unique location and has a lot of surprises in store if you manage to get here, don't mind the outdoors and have patients in treasure hunting. Whatever you are here for, I suggest to...

We went to have a picnic and to enjoy the beach. Beach was a bit rocky but it did not bother us. We also were looking for shells and shark teeth. Fun for all.

This review is for the house itself. First it is in need of a deep cleaning and some updating. We have stayed at many state parks and this by far was the dirtiest. I was surprised because we had never experienced this at other parks. The view and the outdoor decking is wonderful and almost made up for the condition... More

Peaceful and beautiful. Birds and deer are always a sight that will be seen. This is a must visit when you are in Westmoreland county.

It's getting more and more difficult to find the time and place to concentrate on what is right in front of us and to interact in a meaningful way with each other and with nature. Westmoreland State Park is a place where you can find that experience. It is a lovely, well managed facility in a beautiful natural setting. We... More

We stopped here for the night and enjoyed it so much, decided to stay longer. We were here for the beautiful fall colors which added to the beauty of this park. It is extremely well kept and the Rangers were all very pleasant and helpful. It has a nice beach area down on the Potomac River and miles of trails... More

I have been coming to Westmoreland State Park for many years now. I have tent camped and also rented various cabins several winters. Some cabins are more rustic then others. Our last visit here I thought the cabin price was a bit high but once we got there I realized what a great value it was. The place was spotless.... More

Been here 5 times in the last 2 years enjoy the beautiful scenery and the peace and quiet. Plan to come back again in the spring. Great atmosphere for a couple or families. Very reasonable price for the campground.

I am so glad you enjoy camping at Westmoreland State Park. It is a great destination any time, but spectacularly beautiful when the leaves turn. Thanks for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you many times in the future. Please let me know if you ever see anything that needs our attention. More

Dropping by in October to enjoy the colors and great weather. Westmoreland is a beautiful place. Great trails! Discovery Center is a hoot. Staff was great. Staying in the cabins and kayaking on the Potomac remains on our bucket list. A bargain!

Lovely park, with some great trails heading down to the river shore. We only had time to hit two trails, but enjoyed each. Park also features a visitors and small nature center. Perfect romantic spot for couples, and a place to bring the kids.
