Chose CRSP for our annual Mother-Daughter (she's 21) weekend. We stayed in a standard cabin for 2. We loved it. When you walk in you have a full size bed, table/chairs, rocking chair, dresser, and beautiful stone fireplace. Cabin was clean and cozy. Separate full kitchen, no microwave. Bathroom with shower. Limited cell service but had enough to use my Spring HotSpot, however, still not enough to do anything major. Nice old doors and totally log cabin inside and out. Resort provides lots of firewood and matches. We were in the upper loop so very quiet, usually saw deer in woods coming and going. Nice to leave the windows open and hear the sounds of the forest while we slept.

The Beach - very nice sandy beach with lifeguards. Areas for sun or shade. Snack bar on beach reasonable prices. Water is clear and sand goes out to rope borders. There is also a separate diving platform. Lockers and showers.

Horseback Riding - Enjoyed 10am ride; nice peaceful ride through the woods; saw about 14 deer including one buck. Staff were great.

Lodge - Game room downstairs has very outdated arcade games and about half are out of order but there is ping pong, pool, air hockey, and a very quaint shuffleboard game that is part of the original floor.

Lodge Restaurant - The best Cream of Crab soup we have eaten! The price is worth it! Generous Lump Crab meat. I got a bowl with the Friday buffet - big mistake - I was stuffed with the soup and rolls (also delicious). I bought bowls on Saturday for dinner in our cabin. Then I took an order home on Sunday for my husband - he agreed it was the best and he did not even mind the price ($8.99/bowl) for him that says a lot.
Buffets - We had the Friday Spaghetti/Lasagna buffet -good food & price $12.99. Saw the menus for Saturday night and Sunday lunch buffet looked good too and reasonably priced. They also have a menu if you prefer.

Nature Center - great staff. Played Nature Bingo, learned about the corn snake, and challenged my daughter to a scavenger hunt in the woods. Wish we could have attended more activities.

Fishing - I learned there are catfish, bass, and trout in the first lake. You will need to buy a Conservation Stamp $13 (yearly) then the $3 per day fee.

All staff we met were great. We will definitely come here again, either a day trip or longer. We live close in Winchester and Woodstock.

Room Tip: Cabins in North Fork Cabin Area are a little drive up the mountain, and in a quiet area. Lots of dee...

Not far from the hustle and bustle of the busy city life of DC, MD and VA is the old fashioned southern community of Berkeley springs WVA. 10 miles from Cacapon resort state park. We arrived in the town of Berkley where the people were warm and friendly. Our first stop was the Ice House for the wine and food festival then on to the Cacapon resort lodge. The Lodge was warm and the staff was friendly and helpful. The onsite restaurant which served breakfast, lunch and dinner had a good selection of food, the prices were decent. The Lodge rooms were a little small but fine for 2 people (cozy).You will want to load up on snacks and beverages from the local store as after the restaurant closes you would need to drive at least 10 miles to a store.Unless you are good at finding your way around in the dark I would suggest arriving during daylight so you will have a good idea of how to get to the lodge or your cabin without getting lost.
The grounds are very nice and quiet as it was still off season, the lodge overlooks the golf course. They offer various size cabins which depend on how much you want to rough it. Looking forward to going back with the kids and getting a cabin. A great escape

Spent three nights at the lodge and enjoyed both the room and the restaurant. The building is large and overlooks a golf course. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Internet services were off during our stay but it wasn't missed much. The lodge has upgraded to flat screen TVs a big improvement since our last stay. The restaurant has a good menu, service is friendly and timely, and the meals were quite good. The golf course is excellent and there was a package deal for a room and golf that was quite economical. There is also fishing, nature trails, and horseback riding. The lodge is in a West Virginia State Park.

Room Tip: 2nd floor. Good views on either side.

First the positives. The 1957 lodge sits in gorgeous hilly surroundings, and our room looked out to a tree-covered ridge. The mattress was good and firm.

The restaurant food was much better than we expected and the servers were excellent. Items we tried: for dinner, wings, crab cakes, traditional turkey dinner, and for breakfast the meat lover omelet, pancakes, and fruit bowl. All were excellent. Early risers might want to know that the restaurant doesn’t open till 8:00 a.m.

What will keep us from going back are the small rooms and the lodge staff, who, with one exception, seemed bored or annoyed by us. The TV did not work the first night, and the front desk staff declined to comp us in any way for that inconvenience. On the second morning, my wife let the hot water run to a six-inch depth in the tub, but it remained cold. When we politely complained, the man at the front desk said, almost enthusiastically, maybe proud to be primitive, “You didn’t let it run long enough!” The younger woman who checked us in (a North Carolina native) was very friendly and helpful. The others ranged from aloof to grumpy to snotty and mocking.

The room was quite small and basic. There was no desk or easy chair, only two small straight-back chairs and a small round table that wobbled under my laptop. The TV was tiny. There is no in-room coffee maker, but the free coffee in the commons room is very good. Some guests might be concerned that there’s only a punch-in lock on the doorknob, but we never felt unsafe.

I feel almost guilty badmouthing a lodge in the midst of such beauty, and built in 1957, but its literature should warn potential visitors about its limited amenities, and the lodge staff should just straighten up and fly right. To the restaurant staff, I say bravo and thanks.

So how about capon state park capon sucks! My boyfriend (Justin Warren) called over a month ago and booked us a capon for a year anniversary they told him they would give him the nicest capon they had. So of course we thought it be amazing and have great views and we could hang out and relax watch tv and relax cause we both work all the time and wanted some us time. we'll that wasn't likely we got there and there was or small tv in the living room which you couldn't even see from the couch no tv's in the bedroom and very small full size bed. Not to mention the shower head was no bigger than my pinky. We'll we went and talked to the lady's at the front desk and they said it's the nicest one they have and said that they can't refund his money 3 hundred dollars which I think is bull. Don't say that you have this amazing capon and it's all cozy. As they describe on their wed-site! I will make sure that I never ever go to this place Again. Taking People who work hard for there money and taking it away! Isn't right!

My son and I recently made the trip from the Great White North for a weekend of much needed green grass and golf. We stayed in the lodge in a room with a queen size bed and single. Rooms in loge are not large but sufficient for our needs. It is dated but truly has a rustic feel. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Golf course was a fun play and had some very strong golf holes. Because the tough winter for WV it was still in spring like condition but very playable. Pace of play was very good and Ranger made sure that groups let others play through if necessary.

We had a nice buffet dinner for a resonable price.

They are planning quite an expansion which I am sure will bring more people into the park

Defoinitely planning another golf venture there in the future!

Two friends and I shared a two bedroom cabin (cabin 13) the weekend of January 18-20. At approximately $109 per night - it's a great deal!

This was my second stay at Cacapon. I have now stayed in cabin 19 & cabin 13. The cabins are not luxurious. Cabin 13 is "modern" which means it has a microwave & TV. We did not watch any TV so I can't comment on what is available on the TV.

Cabin Location: Cabin 13 is located on the main road, right before the turn for the lodge. It was perfect in mid-January, however, I would think that the location would not be optimal during peak Spring-Fall seasons. We had access to hiking trails as well as paved roads for sweet winter strolls. There was enough parking for the two CRVs we brought.

Bedrooms: There are two bedrooms in cabin 13. One room has a double bed, the other room has two twins. Each room had linens and an extra set of blankets.

Kitchen: electric 4 burner, oven, standard size fridge (no garbage disposal or dishwasher - but honestly it's a cabin so that's ok). Kitchen is a little cramped but it had the basic pots, pans, dishes, knives, etc. The kitchen has a window & door that overlooks other cabins. There was a picnic table associated w/ the cabin, but we didn't get a chance to enjoy it.

Living/Dining: Living area has 1 three person couch, and 2 side chairs. They aren't the most comfortable, but it has to be durable furniture so it is acceptable. Bring your own pillows for sleeping and then use their pillows to provide additional support in the living area - you'll be fine. There is a WONDERFUL stone fireplace in the living room. A wood fire and the company of friends is the best form of entertainment for me ;-) Our dining area was sort of midway in the kitchen and they living space. It has a decent size table, but only three chairs. For us not a problem, but if there was a family of 4 you could ask for another chair.

Service: The staff at Cacapon were so friendly & accommodating. We didn't see a sponge onsite when we arrived. We called the lodge and someone drove down to us and provided extra wash rags. The second day into our stay, we realized we needed a couple extra towels - we drove up to the lodge and were immediately provided an extra set.

Tips:
-Bring extra blankets, as the blankets provided were not sufficient.
-Bring fatwood or another fire starter AND a couple bundles of dry wood. I'm grateful they provided wood for the cabin fireplace, but most of it was damp so when we mixed it with our dried wood we had plenty to burn and enjoy
-Bring an extra fry pan and your own sharp knives if you are particular (we brought our own)
-Be careful about filling the toilet with too much toilet paper; the toilet stopped up, which was easy to fix as there was a plunger in the bathroom - this gave us the impression we were not the first ones to have this issue.
-Go in to Berkeley Springs and enjoy the town. We went did some window shopping, had treatments @ Atasia spa & enjoyed the coffee shop

Room Tip: Cabin 13 is excellent in the winter, but would be on the main drag during peak seasons.
