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

The staff was very efficient at the campground office. We had reservations and when I walked in to register they simply handed me a packet with car passes, campground pass and quick words of instruction with no hassles. Campsites were clean with large pads for tent camping. The campground hosts drove around in a golf cart selling firewood bundles. The... More

Lake Anna State Park We stayed there on September 11, 2016. The sites are nice, fairly level, and clean, but most are back-in. The pull through sites were mostly occupied on this off-season stay, so I expect they are difficult to get during peak times and weekends. There were plenty of back-in sites available. We had electric and water hookups... More

I took my four year old grandson & eleven year old granddaughter to go swimming. Very nice swimming area with a lifeguard. The playground area is very nice too. We had a great time.
