Twin Falls State Resort Park is a state park in Wyoming County, West Virginia. The park was opened in 1968 and was completed by 1975. The two namesake waterfalls are accessed by a hiking trail and are located about 1/2-mile apart on the Marsh and Black Forks of Cabin Creek.

The park is built on land donated by Pocahontas Land Corporation and Western Pocahontas Land Corporation as well as a few small privately owned plots. The entrance to Twin Falls State Park is about 12 miles (19 km) from the Castle Rock Trailhead of the Hatfield–McCoy ATV Trail.

The park's nature center, located in Twin Falls Lodge, features local and natural history displays and offers naturalist-led programs year round.
