CHARLESTON, WV (STL.News) Governor Jim Justice announced today that the new lodge at Cacapon Resort State Park is now open for reservations, following the completion of major expansion work and additional facility improvements.
The $25 million project brings much-needed upgrades to Cacapon’s lodge, which has been under construction since November 2018. Major additions include the construction of 78 guest rooms, a restaurant, lounge, spa, indoor heated pool and whirlpool, fitness center, and multiple spaces for outdoor gatherings.
“The transformation that has taken place here at Cacapon is truly incredible and just one of the ways I’ve followed through on my promise to improve our already-beautiful state parks,” Gov. Justice said. “This expansion is going to make the Eastern Panhandle an even more attractive vacation destination and will bring all kinds of new tourism dollars to West Virginia.”
As part of the expansion project, existing facilities at Cacapon Resort also received major upgrades, including remodeling each existing guest room, creating new conference space, renovating the lobby, and upgrading utility and electrical equipment.
“These improvements speak volumes to Governor Justice’s vision and longstanding commitment to our parks and forests. With summer travel just weeks away, Cacapon is poised to welcome visitors with modern accommodations, first-class outdoor activities, and the warm hospitality found only in West Virginia,” said West Virginia Department of Tourism Secretary Chelsea Ruby.
