Quiet. It is a commodity sometimes difficult to find in

Cabins and cottages at West Virginia’s state parks offer variety of comforts,
from rustic to modern. Cabins at Seneca State Forest were
constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s.
“Folks who stay at Seneca have an interesting habit of not telling folks how
great Seneca Forest cabins are,” said Sissie Summers, programming coordinator
for West Virginia State Parks. “They want to keep their secret about peace,
quiet, good fishing and genuinely enjoying the basics.”
Cabins at Beech Fork State Park
come complete with large screen TVs, full kitchens and expansive views of Beech
Fork Lake in the spring season. Blackwater Falls State Park
has 39 cabins. The newest 13 are called the Northside Cabins. These units have
four-bedrooms, dishwashers, washer/dryer and full amenities.
“We run the gamut of cabin and cottage types,” Summers said. “The options and
park locations across West Virginia make for good variety in cabin ambience.”
