Carnifex/fax/fix Ferry

The proper spelling of Carnefex Ferry is open to debate. The original spelling was Carnifix, the state park is spelled Carnifex, and it's sometimes spelled Carnifax.sign

No matter how you spell it, this park is worth a visit. Not only was a Civil War battle fought there, but the scenery is lovely.



Carnifex Ferry State Park is not far from West Virginia's Hawk's Nest State Park, Babcock State Park, the New River Gorge, Summersville Lake, and Gauley Bridge.

A spectacular view is just a short walk from the parking lot.
