Competition for tourists...

Twin Falls State Park near Pineville, West Virginia, looks to bring more tourist traffic to southern West Virginia. Maybe they will stop there and not travel I-77 into southwest Virginia.

Among those developments are a new federal prison in McDowell County, the increasingly popular Hatfield-McCoy Trails system, and construction of the Coalfields Expressway — all indications Twin Falls Resort State Park needs to be prepared for a growing client base among both state residents and out-of-state tourists, officials believe.

It seems there are a finite amount of tourist travelling the area. But everyone is expecting to attract them.

Time will tell.
