Nearly all of our Virginia State Parks are on some body of water and that means great paddling opportunities. Many parks offer rental canoes, kayaks, row boats and peddle boats.

But if you have never canoed or kayaked before you may be concerned about just getting out on the water. Fortunately, many of our parks offer guided canoe and kayak tours and all of these programs offer basic instruction before the program starts. Our Visitor Experience staff are trained to offer these programs in a safe and professional manner.
