West Virginia State Parks are getting a makeover. The Division of Natural Resources is working on projects after being cleared to use over $60 Million in bonds to fund upgrades and renovation to park facilities.
The work will enhance 35 West Virginia state parks, seven state forests, and two rail trails. Some money will go towards “behind-the-scenes” work, such as structural facility repairs and improved water supply to places like Hawks Nest State Park and Pipestem Resort State Park.
However, many improvements will be visible to guests such as redecorated cabins and lodges. The majority of projects are expected to be completed within the next 3 years.
