Fort Branch is an unincorporated community in Logan County, West Virginia.

Fort Branch is the home of Floodstage Stadium, an asphalt slab helipad that was converted by local schoolboys to become a multipurpose sports field. A depression in the middle of the helipad notoriously collected and maintained a large puddle of rainwater, providing the inspiration for the name "Floodstage Stadium".
