Lincoln County Portal

West Virginia


There are many fine ways for one to spend leisure time in Lincoln County, no matter what the reason. There are community parks located in every corner of the county. One can find playgrounds for the kids, basketball courts, baseball fields, tennis courts, and picnic areas. Situated in the southern part of the county is Big Ugly Public Hunting Area; which is, contrary to what the name implies, a beautiful area for family outings.

Public Hunting is available at both the Hilbert Hunting and Fishing Area and the Big Ugly Public Hunting Area.

Mud River Watershed, a 307 acre lake designed for boating and fishing, is a wonderful recreation area.  Gracing the lake's shorelines are an abudance of hiking trails and picnic areas.
