Braxton County, WV

Pros: Lake

Cons: the Braxton County Fair at Holley Gray Park, I'm from a neighboring county and saw the news breif about the county fair in the spencer newspaper, thought it wood be a nice outing for my 6yr old son and myself since I'm a working mother...

This is a good place to not take you family, the dirty envirment at Holley Gray,the bathroom stink, the spitting on the grounds, the dog droppings, the line jumping for the rides the long wait in line , over 1hr for the rides each , to say the least what I thought would be a fun day for my son and myself turned into a nightmare that I wish I had never entered with my son...
