Continuing with some of the places I've traveled to take photographs, I have photographed the Glade Creek Grist Mill on two occasions, spring & fall of 2010. This is a popular mill for photographers - While there I met individuals from all over the East that either stopped in the park as part of their journey, or made it their only destination.

The Park's Website notes that this mill was built in 1976 from parts of 3 area mills. Although I have yet to see it operating, they do mill cornmeal & buckwheat flour that is available for purchase.

The park has both cabins & a 52 unit campground that are open from mid April to the end of October. Although there are no hookups, there is a bathhouse with hot showers & flush toilets, dump stations & potable water fill up stations.
While I feel visiting & photographing the grist mill is central to the park, there are many other activities include horse back riding, fishing & boating on the lake, as well as fishing in Glade Creek, swimming in the park's pool, 20 miles of hiking trails, and many summer nature programs. A 336KB PDF map of the park is available from their site. A Goggle map that shows the location of the park:

The park is located in a beautiful part of West Virginia - well worth the trip!
