A convenient drive from Richmond or northern Virginia, Lake Anna State Park is THEsummer destination for fun in the sun.
Take the family for a picnic and swim at the park. You will find the beach less crowded on week days, but for summer fun, the more the merrier! Don’t feel like packing a lunch?No worries – the park offers a beach side snack bar.
Make your stay last longer by renting a campsite or one of our camping cabins. If you haven’t taken the family camping before, a camping cabin provides a nice introduction. It’s a one room structure with two sets of bunk beds, table and chair. You use the campground’s bathhouse. There is a picnic table and grill outside of the cabin. So, it’s camping without the tent. Whether you are a tent camper, enjoy your pop up or have a large RV, the Lake Anna State Park campground offers a great camping experience. Sites are large and well separated. Some have electric and water hookups and some do not (although water spiggots are available to share).
There are more activities available at the park than just the beach area. Be sure and drop by the park’s visitor center (adjacent to the beach area). Open Wednesday through Sunday in the summer, the visitor center features displays on history and wildlife as well as exhibits that deal with local gold mining efforts. The park offers a on line reservations.
