Cacapon Resort State Park provides golfing, lake activities and hiking opportunities in West Virginia.

Hiking - Over 20 miles of trails are meticulously maintained for the hikers visiting the park. From a leisure walker to an avid hiker, Cacapon has a trail to suit you. Park map and trail guides are available at the front desk.

Wobble Clay (Trap) Shooting Range - Cacapon Resort’s newest outdoor sport activity is trap shooting, one of the three major forms of competitive clay pigeon shooting (shotgun shooting at clay targets). A fee based activity, each shooter has twenty-five shots per round with all shooting done under the authority of a range supervisor. The trap range does not require a hunting license but does require a reservation.

Horseback Riding - Well-mannered horses and experienced guides allow even the beginner to enjoy Mother Nature on horseback with Triple “C” Outfitters located at Cacapon State Park. Each ride is accompanied by an experienced guide that will lead you through the bridle trails of Cacapon. Pony rides are available for those a little less experienced.
