Watoga State Park is the largest of West Virginia’s state parks, covering slightly over 10,100 acres. Thus, it would be tempting to have this added to the state park highpoint list. It is not the highest HP in a state park in WV but it is the highest point in the largest state park in WV.

Elevation from BM (not shown on USGS but available on internet). BM is marked with concrete monument and is located on or near border of State Park. The USGS map is incorrect showing the boundary north of the BM. The trail just north of the Buck and Doe Bridle Path (North Boundary Trail) is the border.
