Last summer, every chance we got, my granddaughter and I went to Lake Anna to enjoy the beach! We would pack a picnic lunch and drinks for the day. We would get there as soon as it opened and left at sundown. The water was warm, the beach was clean and it was not too crowded. This summer I am... More

The park has hiking trails and numerous roads to ride bikes. There is a nice place to launch your boat if needed and a great beach to catch some rays. The water is always inviting and there is a roped off area for safe swimming.

Nice Bike and Hiking Trails (Horses too). Camping is nice. Beach area needs more sand and gets very crowded but is nice.

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
