I read aboutFebruary article, where the following really captured my attention:
"If building memories and exploring the outdoors is what you are looking for in a vacation then Twin Lakes State Park your destination. This is a family friendly place; bring the kids, the dog and the bikes!"
So another off-season getaway was in-store for us as we reserved cabin 6 at this charmingVirginia State Park!
We enjoyed an intimate coffee for two this afternoon as we watched the sunset
The screened in porch was perfect to play cards, eat breakfast or just watch the time fly
This is another in this series where I actually name names! By that I mean I am sharing a specific cabin at a specific park. As I mentioned in this article referring to Westmoreland State Park cabin #14, it was super helpful for me as a state park goer to know the specifics. I don't want you to miss out on this great location at Cabin 6, all the space and serenity right outside your door!
We really enjoy going off season when the crowds are at bay. The outdoors is spectacular year-round in Virginia, so we know there will always be something interesting to see and do.
Porch rockers to take in the scenery
Cabin 6 is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin with full kitchen, fireplace, dining and sofa
We turned the sofa and chair toward the lake so we could sit and look out
We were impressed by the outdoor spaciousness of our cabin area
Our private bench just a few steps from the water
Private waterfront/lawn area in front of cabin 6
Boat rentals at Twin Lakes State Park (so you can paddle around!)
Sleeps 6 with a Twist
Cabin 6 is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin with a full kitchen and living room with wood burning fireplace, and dining area.
The 2 bedrooms in cabin 6 have 1 single bed and a set of bunk beds each (there are no larger beds in this cabin). So this may not work for the average family/couple, but for friends it may work even better! The cabin has been renovated of late, and has a new roof, new flooring, really nice kitchen and other amenities. There are 6 cabins to choose from, as well as a cottage and bunk house style lodge.

Super Spacious Outside
We were impressed by the amount of outside space at this cabin. There are three cabins waterfront, and cabin 4 and 6 seemed to have the most yard. The picnic table, grill and fire ring are perfectly located between the cabin and the lake. The little bench sits water side and there is also a tie up for a boat. Across the way is the canoe/john boat rental for this lake and two little fishing docks.
#1 Make sure you visit Sailor's Creek Battlefield Historical State Park. This was the last major battle in the Civil War. It is a day park only, so be sure to observe the hours of operation and special programs to get the most out of your visit! It's just a few miles up the road!
#2 Don't miss the sunrises, as well as the sunsets! This quaint little lake outside our cabin, and seen through our windows was "just a little lake" but the entire scenery changed throughout the day, it was really stunning!
#3 Take a short ride south on Hwy 360 towards Keysville and you will find a Railroad Museum in Crewe Virginia. Both of these are great family fun events!
