Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s. Although the cabin area has changed quite a bit since that time, it has only improved. We’ve come a long way from the first days of the cabins. Amenities when the cabins first opened included running water, ice boxes, and lighting and heating equipment operated by the latest types of kerosene lamps and stoves. Today, the cabins include central heat and air, fireplaces, spacious decks, completely furnished kitchens, and linens.
Our cabins are wood frame cabins and they are picturesquely rustic. You won’t feel like you’ve left all of the comforts of home behind though. We strive to make sure that you have the things that you need to live from day to day, without the distractions of our modern, rushed, and busy lives. Come to Staunton River State Park and take some time out just for you and your family. Everyone will feel refreshed and ready to tackle their hectic lifestyles after a little bit of time away.
Historically, we’ve kept the cabins closed from December until March. This year, we’ve decided to try our hand at winter rentals. There is nothing more inviting than a cozy cabin with a blazing fireplace on a cold winter’s afternoon. Can’t you just feel how warm the fire is upon your return from a brisk hike around the park? Situated on the tip of the peninsula between the Dan and Staunton Rivers, our cabins are rustic and relaxing, yet modern enough to make you feel right at home. Although the cabins are not “waterfront” during the winter season you do have a view of the rivers as they come together to form the mouth of Buggs Island Lake.
Just picture this: you and your family tucked away into a cabin overlooking a wandering river. A fire is blazing in the hearth, the kids have monopoly spread out on the table and are actually playing it, your wife is tucked up on the sofa with a book upon her lap and a smile upon her face, and the smell of popcorn fills your world. This could be you! It can become your reality one weekend during the upcoming winter season at Staunton River State Park.
Staunton River offers a haven to duck hunters, early fisherman, outdoor enthusiasts, and those who just want to escape for a little while. There is more to your park visit than just the swimming pool and summertime. Come discover the other seasons at Staunton River State Park. You can hike the trails, explore the shorelines of the rivers, or spend some time watching for Snowflake, our resident albino deer. We invite you to come and spend a winter weekend with us. Who knows, maybe we’ll even get some snow this year!
