The West Virginia State Parks system is giving back to men and women who have served in the military by offering a special discount to veterans who stay overnight at select parks and forests between Oct. 29 and Nov. 16, 2017.

Good for 50 percent off regular lodge and cabin rental rates, the offer is being made available to military personnel who have served or are currently in reserve or active duty, according to state parks chief Sam England.

“We want to recognize servicemen and women in West Virginia and our visiting guests by thanking them for their service,” England said of the discount.

“We are happy to continue our veteran appreciation discount that has been offered for many years near the Veterans Day holiday.”

Participating parks include Beech Fork State Park, Blackwater Falls State Park, Bluestone State Park, Cacapon Resort State Park, Canaan Valley Resort State Park, Cass Scenic Railroad State Park, Chief Logan State Park, Hawks Nest State Park, Holly River State Park, Lost River State Park, North Bend State Park, Pipestem Resort State Park, Twin Falls Resort State Park, Tygart Lake State Park, and Watoga State Park.

Cabins are available at Cabwaylingo State Forest, Greenbrier State Forest, and Kumbrabow State Forest.

Stonewall Resort, at Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park is not part of this specific promotion, but a veteran’s lodging discount program is available there.

The special offer is subject to availability and regular minimum stay requirements from Oct. 29 to Nov. 16. Presentation of military or veteran status will be requested upon check-in.
