Tired of the “been there, done that?” Then it’s time for an adventure that puts your family in the footsteps of American legends. And we’re not just talking about feuding families. Coal barons & railroad tycoons, Mother Jones and Princess Aracoma, and laborers going to battle for the rights of working men and women: They’re all part of a region where our nation’s history is written in the hills.
And what hills they are! Hatfield & McCoy Country is famous for its beauty, where green, leafy forests give way to panoramic vistas, offering a hawk’s eye view of mountain splendor. With seven trails covering over 600 miles of off-road adventure, and open 365 days a year, the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System puts you on the ridges and peaks traversed by the namesake families who made our region famous.
Unique adventures await at every turn. Enjoy our renowned scenery at a slower pace by hiking the hills. Perfect your game amid mountains’ majesty on the 18-hole Twisted Gun golf course. Enjoy a placid kayaking experience on the Guyandotte River or take an energizing airboat excursion on the famed Tug River. And tour a moonshine distillery with no revenuers in sight.
Live performance fans will rave over our revolving schedule of concerts at the amphitheater and the Coalfield Jamboree. History buffs will enjoy The Aracoma Story, a theater piece celebrating the heritage of Native Americans in our region.
In West Virginia, we feel it’s always the time of the season for a celebration. Fairs & festivals fill our calendar year-round. Whether we’re having a chili cook off or reveling in our favorite apple butter recipes, we’re having a party and you are invited!
Adventurous spirits deserve good nourishment and delicious food. Enjoy the special flair of family-owned stores and restaurants, offering beloved local favorites and new spins on the classics. Partake of the treats of Nu-Era Bakery. Savor your coffee of choice at The Hot Cup. Delight in the delicacy of butter brickle at Chirico’s Ristorante. Or discover your own favorite from our wide array of eateries.
After a day of chasing the ghosts of Randall McCoy and Devil Anse Hatfield, go to the other extreme and enjoy our almost heavenly accommodations. We offer a variety of lodging choices and amenities. Feel at home in a family-friendly hotel or a cozy bed & breakfast. Enjoy your visit mountain style at a custom-built cabin featuring state of the art comforts. For those who wish to sleep under the stars, we offer campgrounds that balance rustic with refined.
Come to Hatfield & McCoy Country to blaze new trails and stay to make your vacation legendary!
