CHARLESTON — The Kanawha State Forest swimming pool is open for the summer on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. The price is $3 for adults and $2 for children 11 and younger.

Kanawha State Forest has a 46-site campground, picnic shelters, hiking and biking trails. These facilities and the swimming pool are open to the public. There is no admission fee to enter the forest.

“The forest attracts hikers, mountain bikers and campers because of its natural beauty,” said Kanawha State Forest Supt. Ernie Adkins. “It surprises folks to discover this almost wilderness-like setting near West Virginia’s largest city, Charleston.”
