State Park System Under Review

West Virginia's state park system is getting a closer look by state lawmakers. As they get set for the 2014 legislative session, lawmakers are looking at funding options for the upkeep of a network of 35 parks, seven forests, five wildlife management areas and two rail trails that attracted more than 6.6 million visits last year. West Virginia is one of just a few states that doesn't charge an entry fee, and some hope to keep that going. There is a fee for staying overnight at lodges and campsites. The review by lawmakers includes discussions about finding a revenue source for repair and maintenance work.
