Good Times in Hunting

West Virginia only has one amusement park to its name and it just so happens to be in Huntington. Camden Park first opened its gates in 1903 and has been entertaining both guests and residents for over 100 years with fast roller coasters, water rides, and excellent discounts all year long. The park is perfect for little kids and kids at heart alike, and is a great way to spend the day. Those who are looking for a little more natural fun can also head to the banks of the Ohio River where boating and fishing are popular pastimes.
