Stonewall Resort in north-central West Virginia has begun reopening resort and state park amenities following recent rules and guidelines established by Governor Jim Justice.


The resort's campground and its Stillwaters Restaurant is now open, and its lodge and cottages are set to open Tuesday, according to general manager Andre’ D’Amour.

“While we work to reopen the resort in stages, we promise to always provide a getaway that is safe, relaxing, and enjoyable,” D’Amour said.

Lightburns Restaurant overlooks Stonewall Jackson Lake.

"At this time, we are accepting reservations for the campground, cottages, and lodge in relation to the reopening dates noted for each type of accommodation. Reservations will include flexible cancellation policies, should guests decide to change their plans.”


The status and timeline for the opening of various resort amenities are as follows, he said:

  • The resort's lake, golf course, park trails, and marina slips remain open.
  • The campground, including the campground shower and restroom units, opened May 21.
  • Stillwaters Restaurant, along with patio seating, opened with a limited menu May 21.
  • The lodge and classic and luxury cottages are scheduled to open May 26.
  • Watercraft rentals, including kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddle-boards, will be available for rental May 29.
  • The lodge pool will open on May 30.
  • For the safety of all, there will be occupancy limitations at all times as we follow all CDC Guidelines.

D'Amour noted that Stonewall Resort is participating with West Virginia State Parks’ initiative to offer a thirty percent discount on lodge and campground accommodations for all West Virginia residents for stays between June 1-August 31.

To welcome guests back to Stillwaters Restaurant, the resort’s executive chef, Nevil Barr, has curated a menu of scratch-made Appalachian cuisine.

The restaurant is offering a limited menu through May 25, and a full new “Appalachian Fusion” menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner beginning May 26. Dining reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 304-269-7400. To view the menu, .
