Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park

Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park Stonewall Resort
940 Resort Drive
Roanoke, WV 26447

Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park is a state park along the shores of Stonewall Jackson Lake, an impoundment on the West Fork River in the State of West Virginia. The lake is a project of the United States Army Corps of Engineers. The original park was completed in 1990 and consisted of a campground, marina, multi-purpose building, and park offices. 

Unfortunately, the revenues generated from park activities were not able to support the debt from construction activities. Senator Robert C. Byrd developed a legislation that meant the State would not have to pay the Corps the $28 million debt if improvements to the State Park exceeded $28 million.

West Virginia: Wild and WonderfulThe state chose to venture with the private firm, McCabe-Henley Properties of Charleston. McCabe-Henley, through a bond-issuing agency, sold $44 million in bonds to private markets and investors. This provided a sum of $54 ($10 million from the State and $44 million from investors), which has been used to build the resort. 

McCabe-Henley selected management company Benchmark Hospitality International to manage the State Park and Resort. For marketing purposes, the resort is referred to as Stonewall Resort and Stonewall Resort State Park despite the legal name of the park still being Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park.

The resort is located in Lewis County, West Virginia, about 10 miles south of Weston and about three miles off the Roanoke Exit (Exit 91) of Interstate 79. Although the resort itself is beautiful and welcoming, visitors should note that it is located in a fairly secluded area of West Virginia. The only nearby attraction is a local winery and the only restaurants outside of the lodge restaurants are fast food in nature and over 10 miles away.
