If youhadn't heard the news, Westmoreland State Park was hit hard lateAugustby remnants ofHurricane Irene, followed up by Tropical Storm Lee twoweeks later.
Countless trees wereripped down across the roads, trails, on top of cabins and buildings. The landscaping throughout the parks has changed…Mother nature certainly had her way, as the huge cliff sidealong the Potomac Riverhas slightlyfallen.Not to mention amudslide took overthe parking lot.
Cabin #24 is under repair, but several other cabins are available for reservation
Trees down on new steps that were recently finished
Park staff have been looking forward to the day Westmoreland reopens for a long time. The park should be fully operational with the exception of part of a trail, cabins 5, 8, 14 & 24 and unfortunately, campgrounds are closed for the season.In addition to thecabins that were damaged and under repair, the staff took this opportunity to renovate some of the other cabins thatwere in need of structural repair, although not effected by the storms.
The day-use area and Fossil Beachwill beopen, and that still leaves 22 other cabins and a lodge available for your reservation!
Cabin #2 isone of manyavailable to reserve, unharmed by the storm
We hope you come visit before the all the colorful leaves fall from the trees. But nonetheless, we are open for business and look forward to the return of our visitors!
The fall foliage is a sight you don't want to miss!
