At the peak of woodland wildflower season in West Virginia, Babcock State Park is offering midweek discounts at its rustic and classic cabins. Guests who rent a cabin for two-or-more consecutive nights will receive a 20-percent discount through May 24, 2017.
Each year visitors from throughout the U.S. visit the park to photograph its landmark gristmill and Appalachian wildflower ecosystem, according to assistant-superintendent Sean Pettrey.
“Babcock is a favorite place to view spring wildflowers,” Pettrey said. “Visitors, especially photographers, come from all over the country to see the Glade Creek Gristmill and to enjoy stream and lake fishing, hiking and bird watching.”
“Boley Lake and stream at Babcock are stocked in May, and the Skyline Trail and Manns Creek overlook have beautiful views in spring months with the foliage greening up,” said Superintendent Clinton Cochran. “The Narrow Gauge Trail is a nice walk with its swinging bridge creek crossing.”
The “Hello Springtime” discount cannot be combined with any other discount or rate packages. A list of special events at Babcock State Park is available at www.babcocksp.com. To make cabin reservations, call 304-438-3004 and ask for the “Hello Springtime” discount.
