The community, River Ridge, welcomes all of the seasons. The first weeks of Spring bring white clouds of Service Berry blossoms, followed closely by the vibrant red buds and dogwoods. Violets, blue bells, and phlox carpet the river banks and hillsides. Summer calls for swimming and boating along the scenic Cacapon River. The River Ridge park has boat racks, a bath house, grills and picnic tables for outdoor fun. In the fall, the oaks, maples, and hickories steal the show with the golden Paw Paws along the river persisting until the first snows. In Winter, snow blankets the hills while curls of wood smoke and roaming flocks of wild turkey provide a memorable backdrop for holiday gatherings.

Berkeley Springs is an historic spa and art-filled town nestled in the West Virginia mountains only 90 minutes from the Washington/Baltimore metro area. It boasts warm mineral springs, world class dining, dozens of unique shops, full-service spas and more. Golf, hiking and swimming share the schedule with year 'round festivals, live music and theater.

Friendly people, welcoming mountains and a sense of place mark Berkeley Springs, West Virginia as a vacation getaway for all seasons and tastes.

Morgan County began its historic life as the playground of Thomas Lord Fairfax. Period letters and documents describe Fairfax's frequent visits to his spa on the edge of the wilderness. Along with many social gatherings, he soaked in the warm mineral waters of the springs and rode into the mountains. Fairfax was occasionally joined in these adventures by his friend and Virginia neighbor, George Washington. Today, Morgan County remains a favorite playground of folks along the East Coast. The area is blessed with wooded mountains and ridges, two rivers, several lakes and a wide selection of contemporary recreation activities for both individuals and families. Natural wonders abound in the area side-by-side with man-made recreation. As part of Morgan County's ecotourism, you can explore geology, birding, rare plants, hiking and the ecosystem of the Cacapon River on your own. Organized education opportunities are also available. Contact Travel Berkeley Springs at 1-800-447-8797 for special brochures on the Cacapon River and Ecotourism in Morgan County.

GOLF The 18-hole, 72-par championship golf course at Cacapon State Park was designed by Robert Trent Jones in the mid 1960s. Meticulously maintained, it is one of the region's most popular public courses, open for year 'round play, weather permitting. Carts, driving range, picturesque putting green, pro-shop, clubhouse and challenging play which includes deer as obstacles are all part of Cacapon's appeal. Cold Run Driving Range is open Thursday through Monday in season.

WINTER SPORTS Cross country skiing is a popular sport on the mountain trails of Cacapon State Park, and along the many back roads of the county. Bring your own equipment.

HORSEBACK RIDING From Easter through Thanksgiving, mountain trail rides originate from Cacapon State Park. One of the most popular rides starts in the state park and crosses along the top of Cacapon Mountain for 10 miles to the historically and geologically prominent Cacapon Rocks. With its spectacular views of the Cacapon River Valley, the Rocks were a common destination for 18th and 19th century riders, George Washington wrote often of his daily rides there.

FITNESS & GAMES Rankin’s Fitness Center is open daily and welcomes walk ins for classes and the state-of-the-art machine room. Indoor basketball court and therapy pool. Public tennis, basketball and volleyball courts are found at Cacapon State Park and Biser Street Park in town. Paw Paw Town Park has a softball field and playground. The Morgan County Recreation Area provides five ballfields for league play. Spectators are welcome.

HUNTING & FISHING Quail Hollow Hunts, located 8 miles south of Berkeley Springs, is a 300 acre mountainside hunting preserve offering guided pheasant, quail and chukar hunts with dogs. More than 20,000 acres in two wildlife management areas provide opportunities for hunting everything from white-tailed deer to roaming flocks of wild turkey. There are both spring and fall seasons for various game. Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area also offers primitive camping and a lake. Varying settings for canoeing, fishing and boating are found on the Potomac and Cacapon rivers, on area streams and on lakes at Cacapon State Park and Sleepy Creek Wildlife Area. The Ridge Fish Hatchery breeds famous West Virginia trout used to stock local lakes. Sleepy Creek Lake has bass, sunfish, pike and crappie. There are several public access points to the rivers noted on the map. Camping and sportsman access are found along the Potomac River in Paw Paw. Hunting and fishing licenses are required of both residents and nonresidents 15 to 65 years of age. NEVER hunt on private land without permission!

WATER SPORTS are not limited to soaking in the warm mineral springs. The lake at Cacapon State Park have paddle boats to rent. You can bring power boats to the Potomac River and Sleepy Creek Lake in the wildlife management area. Canoeing, kayaking and tubing are preferred sports on the Cacapon River -- but you need to bring your own equipment. There are sand beaches and lake SWIMMING with lifeguards in season at Cacapon State Park. The public swimming pool in Berkeley Springs State Park is open daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
