Outside Activities an Integral Part of West Virginia State Parks Programming in 2013

Back to basics may be cliché, but as technology distracts all ages with apps and virtual lifestyles, state parks are fielding more and more inquiries by youth groups, families and organizations looking for some basic outdoor activities or entertainment.

“People are looking for something to do as a couple, family, or group. Something affordable or free, outside and away from technology for at least a little while,” said Sissie Summers with West Virginia State Parks. Activities vary. In May alone, visitors can find bird watching, disc golf, bluegrass evenings, Civil War encampments, mountain biking, steam locomotives and train rides, Irish Road Bowling, Island nature, and for some, a cabin retreat.

“I believe folks are genuinely impressed with the activities offered at state parks. For the cost (generally free), the activities and interaction with park staff, you’ll not find a better way to spend some time outside this spring,” Summers said. Events and activities are posted with frequency at West Virginia State Parks.
