Mash Fork Falls is wide waterfall located within Camp Creek State Park in Mercer County. It is located along Mash Fork, which empties into Camp Creek, which empties into the Bluestone River. Although this waterfall does not stand as tall as Campbell Falls at the park, it is very wide and is quite beautiful at peak flow. I have been here in the summertime, and this waterfall does dry up quite a bit, so hit this one after a rain or during the winter or spring. The nice thing about this waterfall is that like Campbell Falls, there are PLENTY of different views and perspectives to capture this Mercer County gem.

To access Mash Fork Falls, take Exit 20 (Camp Creek) of the West Virginia Turnpike and turn right onto Camp Creek Road (Route 19/5) after turning right onto US-19 South. Once on this road, drive for 2.3 miles until you are in Camp Creek State Park and take a left at the fork in the park. Signs will guide you to the falls once in the park. Mash Fork Falls will be at the end of a gravel road that begins right before crossing a bridge that spans the creek. The gravel road is smooth and is open to drive, which will take you directly to the falls. You can also walk the gravel road.
