We've been going to Lake Accotink park for more than 30 years. Paddleboats, mini-golf and the carousel make this a great family place. The well-maintained playground and picnic areas are gems.

I love taking my dogs on the long walk around the lake. We used to love to go with the boys when they were little. They could take their mountain bikes around the tail which would wear them out. Those dogs loved the walk too. This trail is part of the Fairfax County cross-county trail, but I have never been... More

This is a wonderful place. Lots of playground equipment, trails, a small beach and picnic tables. Great for skipping stones, fishing, or spending a quiet hour walking around the lake.

I wished their amenities were open year round. Water fountains and drink machines- were available. It's a very nice park.

Lake Accotink park is a fantastic recreational venue for everybody! We walk around the entire lake with adult kids and friends and can take the grandkids to the Carousel, or paddle boats for fishing- there's a little snack shop for treats too!
