Moncove Lake State Park is situated right on the southeastern edge of West Virginia on the banks of the 144 acre Moncove Lake. The Moncove Lake area was established in 1960, following the damming of Devil Creek in eastern Monroe County. 250 acres were pulled out of Moncove Lake Wildlife Management area in 1990 to be managed as a state park, and since then, almost 650 more acres have been added.
Park visitors can take advantage of the wonderful fishing in the lake, or claim one of the 48 camping sites, hitting any of the four trails wandering through the park. If you visit in the fall months, pay attention to what flies overhead, as the Eastern Hawk migration path passes through the area.
In 2015, Moncove Lake State Park had an economic significance of $1,076,350.
