Social Media Creates Dining Interest in WV State Parks

August 21, 2014

SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV - Restaurants at West Virginia's state parks have an increasing presence on social media and that has resulted in an increase in customers at those restaurants, according to David Pruitt, assistant superintendent at Cacapon State Park. Cacapon and North Bend state parks and Chief Logan Lodge currently post special theme nights and Sunday buffet information Thursdays or Fridays on Facebook.

"It's a way to reach mobile users," said Pruitt. "We think this is a good way to remind folks to visit our area, to enjoy state park facilities and a perhaps a meal with family and friends." Cacapon State Park is located in Morgan County near Berkeley Springs.

The 10 West Virginia state parks with lodges have year-round, full service restaurants. Hours of operation vary by park and season. Those parks are Blackwater Falls, Pipestem, Twin Falls, North Bend, Cacapon, Canaan Valley, Stonewall, Hawks Nest, Chief Logan Lodge and Tygart Lake. Holly River State Park's restaurant and Cass Scenic Railroad's "Last Run Restaurant" are operated seasonally.
