When you think of West Virginia, you probably first think of its "almost heaven" collection of gorges, rivers and hills, but one trip to this state park near Grafton and its beaches will have you singing a new tune. Tygart Lake is ideal for boating, waterskiing and kayaking, and the seasonal swimming beach will make you forget your hundreds of miles from the sea.
