Virginia State Parks offers two new vacation guides

(RICHMOND) - When you're looking to make plans for summer fun in the commonwealth, look no further than the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation's 2001 editions of two Virginia State Parks brochures and vacation guides.

"These brochures are a wonderful first step in planning a Virginia vacation or a weekend getaway," said Department of Conservation and Recreation Director David G. Brickley. "The 16-page Virginia State Parks guide offers descriptions of every state park, information about camping, cabins, accessibility and a two-page amenity chart that explains what each park offers."

The Virginia State Parks 2001 Outdoor Adventures Guide and Calendar introduces visitors to exciting outdoor adventures.

"These outdoor programs and activities represent the best Virginia State Parks have to offer for all ages," said DCR State Parks Director Joe Elton. "You can travel from park to park and always find something to do, well into the fall. We have a wide variety of classes, from photography to panning for gold, and of course a strong emphasis on outdoor skills like camping, canoeing, backpacking and fishing."

Both brochures are available statewide at Virginia Welcome Centers, local visitor centers, all Virginia State Parks, and other select locations or by calling 1-800-933-PARK, or in Richmond, 225-3867. Bulk orders are available by calling the DCR at (804) 786-1712.
