West Virginia State Parks Creates a “WV50” for January 2014

            SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – WV50 is a “visit a state park” promotion to encourage friends, families and meeting planners to use lodge facilities at seven of West Virginia’s vacation state parks: Cacapon Resort, Chief Logan Lodge, Hawks Nest, North Bend, Pipestem Resort, Twin Falls Resort and Tygart Lake state parks. Room rates at these lodges are $50 for standard forest and mountain view rooms in January, excluding Jan. 17 and 18, and applied to one or more night rentals.

            “Travelers already receive lower rates in winter months at these lodges. The ‘WV50’ is even more attractive,” said Paul Redford, district administrator with the West Virginia state park system.  

            Reservations can be made online using the WV50 reference or by calling the participating parks in advance and asking for WV50. The $50 rate includes weekends.
