Davis, W.Va. (AP) -- The State Division of Natural Resources is deciding whether to take over managing Canaan Valley state park.

The option is among several DNR is considering since it rejected a proposal by current management team guest services to run the park's lodge, 250 rooms, ski area and other amenities past 2013.

DNR parks chief Ken Caplinger says guest services was the only firm to submit a proposal on the park, but the agency considered it to be not in the state's best interest.

DNR director Frank Jezioro hopes to meet with guest services soon to discuss possible options.

A guest services spokeswoman says the Fairfax, Va.-based company does not have any alternative options at this time.

Jezioro says DNR will make a decision on managing the park by next year.

    Why not have it managed the same as nearby Blackwater Falls or Cathedral State Parks?? My family just spent some time in each of these recently and were impressed. They seem to be doing very well.

    They will just do something useless with it. Something the citizens totally dont need. How about making something for teens to do that doesn't involve sex?? How about family fun? NOT SOMETHING useless! example: 4 lane when the 2 lane is hardly ever busy. Parking garage. Or tear down everthing and make an overgrown pasture of uselessness. Cmon due something constructive with it!
