Duffield - Natural Tunnel State Park

1420 Natural Tunnel Parkway

More than 850 feet long and as tall as a 10-story building, Natural Tunnel was naturally carved through a limestone ridge over thousands of years. William Jennings Bryan called it the "Eighth Wonder of the World." Other scenic features include a wide chasm between steep stone walls surrounded by several pinnacles, or "chimneys." Facilities include two campgrounds, cabins, picnic areas, an amphitheater, a visitor center, a camp store and a gift shop. You'll also find the Wilderness Road historic area, a swimming pool with a 100-foot slide and a chairlift to the tunnel floor. Guests enjoy cave tours and canoe trips on the Clinch River, as well as the Cove Ridge Center, which offers environmental education, conference facilities and overnight dorm accommodations. A camp store and kayak programs are new this year.

Beautiful park to visit! Only a $5 entry fee. Short walk down to the railway tunnel, but wear good shoes due to the loose rocks and stairs. The climb back up is steep, but you can make it. There is a seasonal chair lift, but you will need to check their website for dates and times. Bring your camera, as the scenery is beautiful! I hope you enjoy the pictures!

We went to Easter egg hunt. It was very fun all the people where courteous and not greedy. The staff was nice polite and informative. The event was well planned and executed. Thanx to the event coordinator and all the staff and volunteers who helped out. We will be back next year keep up the great work.

Cabin #12 is first class. Nicest cabin I've spent the night in thus far. Very clean, nice layout, well designed and great location. The main attraction is beyond words. The trails are well maintained and layed out. I'd love to spend more time here and plan to come back again. Winter is a great time to visit!!

This place is gorgeous. The views are awesome. Me and my husband went up here for the lighting of the tunnel it was gorgeous. The limestone walls were astounding. We rode the chairlift down to the tunnel and back up it was cool. Never been on a lift before the but workers were very nice to me. Definitely stop by here if you are close by.

We love camping here. Great views and a campground with roomy camping spots. We didn't see the train this trip but we will be back when the regular season opens.
