Oak-Hill is a small city located in Fayette County in south-central West Virginia near the New and Gauley Rivers. The population as of the 2000 census was 7,589 residents. Incorporated in 1905, Oak Hill was named because of the location under a spreading white oak tree at nearby Hill Top, the first post office built in the community. Today, Oak Hill is known for being home to a family resort that showcases the spectacular mountain scenery and white water rafting opportunities in the area. Located in the New River Gorge National River area, the resort offers some of West Virginia's finest outdoor activities. Aside from rafting, other activities include rock climbing, mountain biking, zip lines and rope courses, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming, camping and ATV backcountry trips. Oak Hill also offers visitors plenty of shopping and dining options, as well. A rather interesting note about the town of Oak Hill is that country singer Hank Williams was discovered to be dead, while the car in which he was a passenger was stopped in Oak Hill. So, Oak Hill is generally accepted to be his place of death (although some sources dispute this.) No matter what your adventure level, Oak Hill has something for everyone. Whether you're seeking an adrenaline-pumping, adventure vacation, or a laid-back, tranquil setting in which to relax, Oak Hill has something for you.

Oak Hill Weather & Climate

South-Central West Virginia is dominated by a humid continental climate, due to its geographical location in the higher elevations. Summers are very warm and humid and winters are cold and snowy. The humid continental climate is marked by variable weather patterns and a large seasonal temperature variance. Summers are often warm and humid with frequent thunderstorms and winters can be very cold with frequent snowfall and persistent snow cover. The seasonal temperature variance is typically 25-35C (45-63F) and increases as one moves further inland. Places with at least four months of average daily temperatures above 10C (50F) and at least one month below 0 C (32F) or -3 C (26F) depending on source, and which do not meet the criteria for an arid or semiarid climate, are classified as humid continental.
