Things To Do
Bluestone National Scenic River offers many outdoor activities. Hiking, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, birding, wildlife watching, relaxing and enjoying nature are favorites here. Canoeing and kayaking opportunities are usually limited to the springtime, when river levels are adequate. Camping is not permitted in Bluestone National Recreation Area, although excellent campgrounds are provided at each end of the park in Pipestem Resort State Park and Bluestone State Park.
