A management contract to operate Canaan Valley Resort State Park near Davis in Tucker County has been awarded to U.S. Hotel and Resort Management, Inc., according to Paul Redford, district administrator with the West Virginia State Park system. The current management contractor, Guest Services, Inc., (GSI) will continue contact obligations through June 30.

"Both U.S. Hotel and Resort Management, Inc., and GSI are professional hospitality and property management companies and they are working together to ensure that visitors to the park continue to receive excellent hospitality during this transition period," Redford said.
