The Lake Anna State Park is a great place to hike. They have many good hiking trails and spots to see the lake. My family has worked very hard on helping this park and now they have a lodge named after them!

Personally, I love Lake Anna. It is always a great time! We rented kayaks and went out on the lake. Everyone we met was nice and courteous. The weather was beautiful. The cabin was great (dcr). The docks are in good shape. the trails are really nice with all of the exercise spots. I love the playground for the kids.... More

I assume the main draw of this campground is its proximity to the lake. We were there in the winter and so this wasn't an option for us. The campground was clean, the showers looked good, but otherwise it was pretty non-descript and not very shady (to keep in mind for the summer).

This was the first time we had rented a cabin in a Virginia State Park, and we were pleasantly surprised. Easy to find our way around after arriving after dark on Friday. Loved the porch with lake view and rocking chairs. The cabin wasn't luxurious by any stretch, but the living room furniture was comfortable, the bed sleep-able, and the... More

We have been to Lake Anna a few times camping. This time we decided to visit because of the First Day Hike and all Virginia State Parks were free. Beautiful lake and trails. We love hiking and all of Virginias State Parks...they are the best!

This is a nice state park, but because of heavy use is very hard to take advantage of it facilities. The park has nice beachs and very limited cabins. Boat ramps could be better.

My wife and I visited Lake Anna State Park on a sunny week day in early October. Whilst we were there an event was taking place - a Quadathlon with cyclists riding up and down the entrance road. We paid our $4 day fee (honesty box payment so have cash with you) and parked right up by the beach area.... More
