Virginia State Parks offers new vacation guide
RICHMOND ? Planning summer fun in the Old Dominion is made easier with a new guide from the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, which manages the award-winning Virginia State Parks.
The 2006 Virginia State Parks Guide introduces visitors to exciting outdoor activities.
?This brochure is an invaluable tool in planning a Virginia vacation or a weekend getaway,? said DCR Director Joe Maroon. ?The 24-page Virginia State Parks Guide offers descriptions of every state park, information about camping, cabins, accessibility, and a chart that shows each park?s amenities.?
A special section of the guide profiles the 70th anniversary of Virginia State Parks and its rich and interesting history.
The guide is available at Virginia Welcome Centers, local visitor centers, Virginia State Parks, or by calling 1-800-933-PARK. Up to the minute, comprehensive Virginia State Parks information is also available at www.dcr.virginia.gov.
On June 15-18, 2006, Virginia State Parks celebrates the anniversary by rolling back the daily admission fee to 1936 rates ? visitors will be charged 10 cents each, all weekend long.
