Bluestone State Park Campground opening delayed until mid-June

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Today, West Virginia State Park officials announced Meadow Campground, Tent Area Campground and Old Mill Campground at Bluestone State Park 2019 opening will be delayed until mid-June.

"Earlier this year, heavy rains and major flooding created two road slides and extensive electrical damage at the campgrounds," said Matt Yeager, District Administrator with West Virginia State Parks. "We have made significant progress on the repairs; however, until the restoration is complete, access and operation of the campground, picnic area, and swimming pool is delayed until mid-June."

The delayed campground and swimming pool opening do not affect any Bluestone cabins rentals or access to the park office.
