Special Rates at West Virginia State Parks Recognize Veterans, Nov. 1-15, 2013

            SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Veterans staying at a West Virginia state park the first two weeks of November are eligible for special overnight rates.

            “The Veterans Day appreciation program has been offered for many years,” said Paul Redford, district administrator for West Virginia State Parks. “It is quite popular and appropriate as many West Virginians have served in the military and we offer this rate to thank them for their service.”

            Room and cabin rates are reduced Nov. 1-15, 2013. The rate special is available to all military personnel who have served or who currently serve in the reserves or are on active duty. Presentation of military or veteran status is requested. 

            The program is available any rental night with the exception of two-night rentals on weekends for cabins or cottages, and is based on availability. Reservations are requested and, when calling for reservations, ask for the Veterans Appreciation rate. 

            Participating areas are: Beech Fork, Blackwater Falls, Bluestone, Cacapon Resort,, Canaan Valley Resort, Cass Scenic Railroad, Chief Logan Lodge, Hawks Nest State Park, Holly River, Lost River, North Bend, Pipestem Resort, Stonewall Resort, Twin Falls Resort, Tygart Lake and Watoga state parks, and Kumbrabow and Seneca state forests.

            Veteran’s Appreciation and other overnight packages information are posted on the park website. To learn more about West Virginia State Parks, visit www.wvstateparks.com.
