COVID-19 Resources

Dear friends of Visit Mercer County,

As with many of you, we are monitoring developments of the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on travel and hospitality.

Our visitor center is closed to the public, but we remain focused on delivering information to our visitors and our hometown friends and family.

As of March 17, the Governor of West Virginia has limited full-service in all restaurants and bars. Gift cards, carry-out and delivery options are available at this time.

As of March 20, the Governor of West Virginia has closed the Hatfield-McCoy ATV Trails and all state park lodges. However, the parks are open for hiking and walking, while still following social-distance. 

All recreational facilities, gyms, salons, spas and attractions have closed during the COVID-19 outbreak.

As of March 23, the Governor of West Virginia has issued a stay-at-home order for all West Virginia residents.

On March 30, the Governor closed all West Virginia State Park Campgrounds. Recreational areas remain open, but please practice social distancing guidelines. For more information, visit

To our visitors, we love our piece of #Almostheaven and can’t wait to share it with you when this health threat has passed!

To our hometown friends, you are the people that make Mercer County a great place to live, work and visit. Get outside, explore the waterfalls, walk a trail and enjoy home. #visitmercerwv
