Have you ever wanted to search for a cabin at a Virginia State Parkand were open to any one you found? You wanted to plan a mystery getaway/vacation?
Cabin 12 at James River State Park was available!
As a family who loves 35 Virginia State Parks to choose from, and many of those offer lodging in cabins as well as campgrounds, we thought it would be fun to just pick one! I asked Virginia State Parks Acting Reservation Center Assistant ManagerMike Salottiand hetold me how:
Go to the main Reserve America page
You can search with different parameters on www.reserveamerica.com. Leave the park blank and select "cabins or lodgings" and then "the state".
You should then be able to click “State” on the top section of the next page to bring up state parks:
This will tell you which cabins are available at which parks, you can select a park amenity like I did, "Beaches/Water Activities" which is important to us in the summer months.
As you can see by the photos we chose the Park of the Month for June: James River State Park as our destination!
We figured tubing and kayaking on the river would be a lot of fun, not to mention the "Canoe Livery" they have that can collect you and bring you back to the park!
Grillin' onions and brats outside on the deck

Comfortable spacious newer cabins (this is a 2 bedroom cabin)
Nice view from the master bedroom
