Welcome to Mountain State Waterfalls! My name is Joe Fitzwater, and I am originally from the Elkview area in Kanawha County, but moved to Clay County when I was 16 until the historic floods in 2016. I now reside just outside of the city limits of Charleston.
This website was built to provide a place where people can go to find waterfall adventures to check out in the great state of West Virginia! There are over 200 waterfalls to check out, and as I continue to go on new adventures, I will continue to add to this site. It is my hope that this website helps inspire others to see everything this wonderful state has to offer!
Most photos taken and uploaded to this website are used with an iPhone. I use an iPhone XR, and I do this because I am a firm believer that you don’t need to take a lot with you to enjoy a wonderful view or waterfall.
I use my phone to determine the altitude and coordinates of each spot. I do check each location to ensure the coordinates are accurate.
Please contact me below if you ever have any questions or comments – I’d love to answer!
Thank you for visiting, and check back often, as I will be updating this site regularly!
