State park fee repealed by governor

"CHARLESTON — Less than two days after the Division of Natural Resources announced a pilot program that would introduce a fee to seven state parks in West Virginia, Gov. Jim Justice stepped in to cancel the program."

“The move was announced without my approval. It’s a bad idea and I’m going to fix it,” Justice said in a news release issued today.

Justice announced that he is putting the brakes on the recent decision by the Division of Natural Resources to charge park visitors a $2 fee. Justice referred to the DNR’s announcement of the program as an “error” and canceled it."

“West Virginians are struggling and at this time there is no way I can go along with charging a fee to enjoy our state parks,” he said. “West Virginia’s state parks will remain free and open to the public. When I see a mistake, I make it right.”
