CACAPON STATE PARK
Cacapon Resort Park received its name from being located in the shadows of the wide expanse of Cacapon Mountain. This mountain is the highest peak in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia reaching an elevation of 2,300 feet. The Cacapon River parallels the mountain in a meandering route beneath the mountains western slope.
Cacapon (pronounced CaCApon) is a derivative of a Shawnee Indian word meaning "medicine waters". It refers to the areas renowned medicinal waters, which have been acclaimed throughout history for their healing powers. These waters come to the surface approximately ten miles from Cacapon at the nearby Berkeley Springs State Park.
Be sure to check out and stay updated with Cacapon's new additions. Throughout 1999 several projects were completed. Among these new expansions was a new conference facility capable of seating up to 250 people and an elevator located in the lodge.
