Great park to go for a short hike. A trail circles the lake and is a relatively easy hike with occasional wildlife views.

My grand daughters first fishing trip. She had a blast so did I. She caught bluegills and yellow perch. Awesome day for us both.

We went to ride mountain bikes on the trail around the lake. We had a great time. The hills werent awful, we did push a few times. If you go around the bridge side you'll come out on top of the hill at the spillway. Once you come down the hill from spillway, stay next to the lake to enter the trail on around. My oldest son went ahead of us and he missed it and took the graveled service road. That road will get you back to the parking lot, but not quite as fun as the trail. We were finally packed up and leaving when we took this picture of the moon and its reflection on the water. We thanked God for such a beautiful sight!

Mercer County's Best Kept Secret

Centered around a beautiful lake in Mercer County, WV, Glenwood Recreational Park is a hidden gem. The park is located on Rt. 20 between Princeton & Bluewell. Fishing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, miniature golf, disc golf, picnicking, geocaching, tennis, pickle ball, basketball, playgrounds and more!  Launch your canoe, kayak or John boat with trolling motor at one of our 3 boat launches. *Gasoline boat engines are not allowed.* We are also one of the most popular outdoor wedding venues in Mercer County!  You can book our picnic shelters or wedding gazebo from April 15th through October 31st.  Year-round rentals are available at the Mercer County 4-H Camp located adjacent to the park. 

Tucked away on the back side of Glenwood Park is another one of Almost Heaven's best kept secrets. In 1940 4-H'ers in the Mercer County area decided to build an entire campground made only out of logs from the surrounding area. We have a dining hall with commercial kitchen that seats 150, an assembly hall with stage and kitchenette that seats 100, and 2 bunkhouses that sleep 75 each.  Give us a call to check availability!
