We were in town visiting relatives for the New Year and decided to take part in the First Day Hike offered every January 1st in Virginia State Parks. A very friendly and helpful ranger greeted us at the welcome gate - she gave us a highlighted map with suggestions and many tips to enjoy the day. Her enthusiasm was contagious!... More

I hadn't been to PP in years but went for their Halloween festivities for kids this year and it reminded me of how much I love it there and how much we've been missing. Very friendly staff, clean and lots to do! Highly recommend for all year round activities! Camping is a blast there, though I haven't been in years!

Hiked a couple of trails (and there are many, many more hiking and biking trails to see). The CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp) museum is in a CCC building constructed in the... More

We rented 2 cabins next to each other - there are only a total of 6 cabins at the park. The cabins were new-like and very clean! They have 2 sets of bunk beds, a table and 6 chairs, a ceiling fan w/ light, plenty of windows and a really cute porch. It was like a luxury, rustic-style cabin! We... More

Lots of walking and hiking trails and picnic areas. The staff at the gift shop, especially Carolyn, was helpful and courteous.
