W. Va. State Parks Offer 50% Discounts After Labor Day
Camping in September is cooler than during the hot summer months, and West Virginia State Parks are making it even more attractive by offering half-off discounts at participating campgrounds, according to a news release from the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.
Several parks reduce campsite fees from Sept. 6 to 30 by 50%, The State Journal reported. State parks and forests offer two September campsite rate reductions: areas that are Sunday to Thursday only and areas for any two consecutive days.
Parks offering 50%off Sunday through Thursdays from Sept. 6 to 30 include:
- Bluestone (Summers County).
- Beech Fork (Cabell County).
- Watoga (Pocahontas County).
- Pipestem Resort (Summers County).
- Canaan Valley Resort and Blackwater Falls (Tucker County) state parks.
- Tygart Lake (Taylor County).
- Kumbrabow State Forest (Randolph County).
“Campers will see foliage begin the color change in mid-September at some parks. If autumn color is early, it’s an added bonus at Canaan Valley and Blackwater Falls, two parks that recognize the mid-week September rate,” said Brad Reed, district administrator with West Virginia State Parks, in the news release.
“Campgrounds operated by the state park system are all first-come, first-served after Labor Day,” Reed said. Reservable sites are available from Memorial to Labor Day weekends at West Virginia’s state parks. Stonewall, Canaan Valley and Tygart Lake campgrounds are the exceptions, with year-round reservations available, as weather permits.
