Laurel Lake is one of Mingo County's many hidden and underutilized gems. The beauty is simply breathtaking. Around the lake are many benches, picnic shelters, a kids play area, and many great fishing spots. Particularly in the fall-time, the lake is a special place to visit. While you're there, make sure you drive to the northern end of the lake and make a trip through the historic Dingess Tunnel!
