ANSTED, W.Va. (WVVA) – Governor Jim Justice (R) made an appearance in Fayette County to share several tourist milestones in The Mountain State. Hawks Nest State Park is the site of the revelation after a redesign of the West Virginia travel guide.

The new four-part travel guides are being called “the first of their kind in the country.” Each presents a different aspect of outdoor recreation in West Virginia. Governor Justice commented on West Virginia’s rise to the pinnacle of outdoor tourism.

Hawks Nest State Park received a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate more than $150 million in renovations and upgrades across all state parks. Natural Resources Division Director Brett McMillion said continued financial support for outdoor recreation is critical to continued tourism growth.

The West Virginia Department of Tourism reports that 2021 revenue increased by 40%.
