Virginia State Parks offers two new vacation guides

(RICHMOND) - Planning summer fun in the commonwealth is made easier with the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation's 2003 editions of two Virginia State Parks vacation guides.

"These brochures are invaluable in planning a Virginia vacation or a weekend getaway," said DCR Director Joseph H. Maroon. "The 16-page Virginia State Parks Guide offers descriptions of each state park, information about camping, cabins, accessibility and a chart explaining each park's amenities."

The Virginia State Parks 2003 Outdoor Adventures Guide and Calendar introduces visitors to exciting outdoor activities.

"These programs, festivals and activities represent the best Virginia State Parks have to offer," said DCR State Parks Director Joe Elton. "From traditional outdoor activities like canoeing and fishing clinics to night hikes and cave tours, you'll always find something to do in our parks."

Both guides are available at Virginia Welcome Centers, local visitor centers, Virginia State Parks, or by calling 1-800-933-PARK. Bulk orders are available by calling the DCR at (804) 786-1712.
