Canaan Valley Resort State Park
Valley Resort State Park is a state park within Canaan Valley,
Tucker County, West Virginia.
Unlike more traditional state parks, the park is actually a
commercial ski resort, operated under contract with the state by Guest
Services, Inc. It receives no direct state subsidy and has virtually
no state employees on site.
The park features a 250 room ski lodge, cabins, and camping. In an
attempt to develop into a "four seasons" resort, it has
developed hiking trails, bike trails, and a championship-level golf
The park was built in the early 1970s, in an attempt to develop a
ski industry in the state. It has been very successful and several
private ski operations have opened nearby and in other parts of the
state as well.
