Canaan Valley State Park cited by magazine

DAVIS – ConventionSouth magazine has named Canaan Valley Resort State Park as one of 50 Top New or Renovated Meeting Sites in 2014. Canaan is the only West Virginia site to receive the award.

two years.

The magazine said Canaan Valley Resort and Conference Center “indeed displays a superior commitment to providing groups with the top-of-the-line amenities and service that they require.”

Rob Gilligan, park superintendent, said, “We are honored to receive this award and invite not only meeting attendees and meeting planners, but also anyone, individuals or groups, to visit and enjoy the beautiful facilities and surroundings, here at Canaan Valley State Park. You won’t be disappointed.”
