Pipestem Resort State Park is a 4,050-acre state park located in southern West Virginia, on the border between Mercer and Summers counties. The park was built with grants provided by the Area Redevelopment Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce under the administration of President John F. Kennedy. It is located in the gorge of the Bluestone River.

The Park name derives from pipestem, or narrowleaf meadowsweet (Spiraea alba), a locally common shrub historically used for making pipe stems.

The park features two hotels, one of which may be reached only by an aerial tramway to the bottom of the gorge, 26 fully equipped wood cabins, a regular and a par-3 golf course, several restaurants, and other recreational activities, including its own stable of horses.

The park's nature center features displays of native plants and animals, and offers nature programs. The Nature Center is open year-round, and includes the Harris Homestead, a reconstructed 1900s period historic house museum, barn and meat house.

Picnicking

There are three picnic shelters for daily rental at Pipestem. Advance reservations are available two years out. All shelters offer approximately 10 tables, electric service and lighting, water, and a charcoal grill.
