Great Lake for a large family vacation. Home rentals are plentiful and seem to be top of the line in amenities and quality of the home itself. Bring your boat and trailer for a week of Wake Boarding, Jet Skiing and just cruising the lake. Daughter ended up purching a lot and plans to build in the future. Great spot... More

We discovered Lake Anna, Virginia by accident while driving through the state of VA and taking back roads to avoid the highways. The Lake is beautiful and quite large. Most of the shore line is either wooded or has water-front homes. Lake Anna is located in a remotely populated part of the state and surrounded (primarily) by state parks, farms,... More

We went to the lake on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend and had the following fees: $5 per car for parking, $4 per adult for beach access, and $3 per child (ages 3-11) for beach access. Usually I don't mind paying either fee, however, the parking lot was full and people were parking on the side of the road... More

This is a lovely park with nice little cabins to rent and large, shaded, private RV/trailer sites with water and electricity. There is a great swimming area in the huge park lake, several playgrounds, walking trails, geocaches, picnic shelters, concession stand, on and on and on. The showers and restrooms are spotless as is the entire park. We have parked... More

We stayed several days in July. The weather was hot and humid-typical for the season. The campground has RV sites, cabins (one of which was handicap access), and tent sites around several loops. Our RV site was large enough for our RV, our tow vehicle and also had a gravel pad for a tent. This site was very private as... More

This was the first time my family had been to Lake Anna. My husband use to come fishing at this lake as a child and remember many fond memories. We enjoyed the trails and the beautiful woods of Virginia. Some trails were busier then others. It was nice to have a vending machine to get a cold water after a... More

I have been to Lake Anna many times in my life and sadly I will say it has changed over the years. The beach where you can swim is loud, crowded, and dirty. There a many nice hiking trails but the trails in the woods had so many bugs! Made for a very irritating hike. My suggestion is take the... More

Lake Anna was packed on the 4th of July weekend we visited. I thought we’d never find a patch of shade to chill. If water activity is your thing then you can swim (fee paid for beach area), fish, paddle board, jet ski, or do whatever your heart desires. If chilling is your thing then you can hang out in...

I was there for first time this past week-end. As long as you don't stop at the water volley ball area, its ok. The volly ball area was just a big hangout for beer, shots and filthy music, not family oriented at all. Jello shots to anyone, even young girls and boys. The campsite looked ok. The water stained everything... More
