Father’s Day 2017: West Virginia State Park Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18, and if you still need a gift, look no further than West Virginia State Parks. Whether he enjoys hiking the outdoors, golfing with friends or eating a delicious meal with his family, your dad is sure to enjoy his special day spent at a state park.

Here are a few options for how West Virginia State Parks can help treat the dad in your life to a day he’ll never forget.


West Virginia State Parks are a great place to spend holidays with family.

Go For a Hole-in-One

If your dad likes golf, give him a gift that’ll keep on giving: a season pass to West Virginia State Park golf courses. A season pass is a great investment, lasts all year and guarantees play at any of four state park golf courses — Cacapon, Canaan Valley, Pipestem and Twin Falls. Passes also provide a discounted greens fee at the Palmer Signature Course at Stonewall Resort State Park, Monday through Friday after 1 p.m.

Seven types of golf passes are available for purchase, with options for individuals and families. No matter your dad’s experience or availability, there’s a pass tailor made for him.

For more details about season golf passes and how they may be purchased, contact the golf professionals and golf staff at each park. More information may also be found by clicking HERE.


West Virginia State Parks offer championship golf courses for the whole family to enjoy.

Serve Up a Special Meal

Let your dad know how much he’s loved by treating him to a fine-dining meal at a West Virginia State Park restaurant. Go for a filling breakfast at Twin Falls, a mouth-watering burger from The Smokehouse at Blackwater Falls for lunch or a quiet dinner at Pipestem’s Bluestone Dining Room.

Not sure which one to choose? How about a buffet with saucy Saint Louis BBQ Ribs, southern fried chicken, fettuccine alfredo and assorted sides and deserts? If that sounds good to you, then come out to Chief Logan Lodge’s Father’s Day buffet from 12 to 3 p.m. Price for adults is $21.95, kids are $10.95 and children 3 and under eat free. Reservations are requested.


Many state park restaurants offer stunning views to enjoy while you eat.

When in Doubt: Gift Card

Sometimes, buying a gift for dad isn’t easy. If you’re having trouble finding something, opt for a West Virginia State Park gift card and let your dad choose. Gift cards are a great gift, and may be used to pay for lodging and cabin rentals, meals, gift shop purchases, golf and other services at all West Virginia State Parks and Forests. That means your dad can do whatever he wants!

Gift cards are available for purchase year-round and do not have an expiration date. Order yours online at www.wvstateparks.com, by phone or at your favorite park. The minimum purchase amount is $25 per card, and amounts must be in whole dollar amounts. Gift cards can not be redeemed for cash.
