Governor Jim Justice unveiled over $8 million worth of improvements at Pipestem Resort State Park (West Virginia) during the ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Wednesday.

According to a report, park improvements comprised nearly $4.4 million worth of renovations for two lodges, cabin upgrades, and over $3.6 million in infrastructure upgrades to the park’s tram, wastewater treatment plant, and campground waterline.

The governor also discussed other significant improvements to the park over the past four years, including the construction of a zipline, splash park, an adventure lake, and an adventure zone.

“Pipestem Resort has always been one of West Virginia’s most popular state parks, and these upgrades we’re celebrating today and all of the incredible additions we’ve seen happen since Governor Justice took office have made Pipestem a place people all over the world want to visit,” West Virginia Department of Tourism Secretary Chelsea Ruby said.

Pipestem is the latest state park to reopen its facilities after extensive renovations.

Situated on the east rim of the Bluestone River Gorge on the border of Summers and Mercer counties, Pipestem Resort State Park opened to the public on Memorial Day, 1970.

The park offers breathtaking views, zipline tours, guided trout fishing trips, mountain bike excursions, a championship golf course, 82 campsites, 26 cabins, and two lodges, one of which can only be accessed by riding the park’s aerial tram to the bottom of the Bluestone River Gorge.
