VIPP: 34th annual Picnic

The 2020 VIPP (Very Important Parks Persons) Picnic at Pipestem Resort State Park is an annual event for individuals enrolled in the West Virginia State Park VIPP program.

Picnic details, registration form, and pricing are not finalized until mid-July in 2020. The picnic meal generally begins at 12:30 p.m. with activities planned in the morning and afternoon and evening for ‘things to do.’

As picnic details are confirmed, information will be updated on this event listing and an email to VIPP enrollees will be transmitted. Picnic attendance does require preregistration and is fee based per person.

Overnight accommodations for VIPPers at Pipestem Resort is best reserved online or by calling Pipestem Resort State Park. Overnight reservation is the responsibility of the attendee and is not part of the picnic registration.

Consider signing up for the Online newsletter and begin receiving discounts or offers year-round for overnight stays at not only Pipestem, but for all parks and forests. Often these offers will be during the VIPP picnic dates and provide greater discounting. Reserving a campsite, cabin or lodge room is separate from the preregistration for the picnic.

If you are enrolled in the VIPP program, please email dnr.vipp@wv.gov so your email address is current or for VIPP program interest. Information about the picnic and other VIPP activities planned will be updated or posted as an event on this website or announced via email. US postal addresses on file are used for correspondence only. Event information is by email or on this website as an event posting only.

Thanks to all the VIPPers that attended the 33rd picnic at Blennerhassett Island in 2019! A great time and weather was enjoyed.
