    The West Virginia State Wildlife Center is a modern zoological facility displaying native and introduced state wildlife. Operated by the Wildlife Resources Section of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, the Wildlife Center is dedicated to presenting visitors a realistic and factual understanding of our state's wildlife. Woodland wildlife can be viewed along a 1.25 mile loop walkway through a mature hardwood forest in which animals are displayed in their natural habitat. The spacious enclosures allow the animals to interact with their environment and they therefore exhibit more natural behavior patterns. Interpretive signs help the visitor to learn more about each animals' life history, biology and its relationship with humans

    There is no restaurant on the facility. They do have a lovely picnic area near the Elk enclosure. It is very nice. Some are under shelter and some are in the gorgeous sunshine.

    There is a nice bathroom there also with plenty of room and wheelchair accessible.

    We drove up to the park which is well marked along the highways with the brown state attraction signs.

    There is plenty of free parking at the giftshop and park entrance and also at the picnic area.

    This is the main office and gift shop. You pay to enter the park here and there is several drinking soda machines also with water.

    the prices were reasonable. The kids enjoyed browsing and picking out a souvenir for rememberance.

    We drove over some beautiful roads to get to the Holly River State Park, also located on Rt 20.

    It was lovely and the kids enjoyed the playground there. They also have picnic area and the park is only about 12 miles away.

    Helvetia is located another 20 miles past the park entrance on the same road.

    It is a narrow winding road with beautiful scenery and lots of mountain laurel on both sides of the roads..it is beautiful and worth the drive.
