We arrived via boat, tied up to the available dock. The attendant assured us everything left on the boat would be fine. There is an office right there that has all picnic necessities. A short walk along a beautiful view brings one to a large beautifully maintained pool with FOUR lifeguards on duty at all times while they are open. Facility has snack shop (hamburgers, corn dogs, ice cream etc); pool has diving board, water slide tube! Bathrooms, changing rooms, picnic areas have grills. Staff has wonderful attitude!! Must visit Virginia Park!

Our first trip to Fossil Beach and looking for fossils. We were the first car to park and second family on the beach today with many others following suit today. Nice walk down to the beach and very cool due to the trees and arriving around 8:40am. There had been a fair amount of rain the night before and it created a run off of cool fresh water to stream into the beach/Potomac. Our kids had fun playing in the sand, water and picking up shells and rocks. My husband and I looked for fossils, but as total amateurs and ill prepared we only had a few fossils and sharks teeth. I would definitely recommend taking a 1/4" sifter, shovel, sun block, bug spray, and plan on being there at low tide with some patience. It was a lot of fun. I would also highly recommend taking some water and snacks as the trek back up can be awful if you have any hangry members in your crew. Makes the walk back seem like it's much further.

My family and I have been coming here for years. Absolutley the place! We have stayed in the cabins and also set up tents. We love to search for sharks teeth and use the boat launch for our kayaks. Beautiful views.

We were staying at a near by campground and drove here for the day. We only used the beach area. We took a Kayak out. Very nice and clean beach. Not overcrowded for July. We saw some deer when we were leaving. Will definitely come back when we can stay longer.

Westmoreland State Park is absolutely beautiful! This park is very clean, maintained and family friendly. The campsites are spacious and level. There is something for everyone with hiking, swimming, bike trails, and kayaking. I would highly recommend this Park . Definitely will return for more visits!
