New York State Company to Run Peaks Lodge

Bedford Co., VA - Delaware North Parks and Resorts has received a 10-year contract to operate the Peaks of Otter Lodge.

The company is based in Buffalo, New York.

The company currently operates concessions at national parks including the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Shenandoah.

A Blue Ridge Parkway spokeswoman says parkway management is encouraging Delaware North to reach out to former lodge employees. The parkway hopes the lodge will reopen early this summer, but says that is up to the new company.
