A great place to visit in the summer. It is a bit difficult to find (the address above is misspelled, it is 7500 Accotink Park Road), but just ask if you get lost. I love to visit this lake and to take hikes on the paths around the lake. You can see some serious wildlife. If you have a kayak,... More

The park has a couple of rides but it is hard to find them when they are open. A dozen picnic tables are scattered in the woods. There is a good lake for fishing or you can rent paddle boats. I know it for a wonderful walking and bike trail that goes around the lake. Lots of people on it... More

We live near here and like to run and bike the trail. The trail has enough elevation change to make it interesting without killing you. Part of the trail does leave the park and take you on a residential street, but it isn't long or heavily trafficked. This park doesn't get as much traffic as Burke Lake and I think... More

We started out at a park off of Carrleigh Parkway. I suspected we would end up at Accotink. We walked the trail around the lake. At one point we were unsure if we would end up back where we started but we did. The trails were well maintained. The marina had many activities for people of all ages. The only... More

There is so much to do here. You can hike, ride a bike, rent a boat, take your kids/family to the park, cook out or if you need to you can hold a birthday party there. There is a little sandy area where you can lay or sit by the water if you would like. Don't think you can swim... More

We attended a family reunion at the park. We had the use of the pavilion which was conveniently near the restrooms. The only thing was there was a lot of stairs to reach it so we had to take the elderly through a side service road in order for them to get to it. There was canoeing, paddle boats &... More

When the restaurant environment is not for you, then carry yourself and your breakfast, lunch, or dinner to Lake Accotink Park. Whether alone, coupled off, or with a group, Lake Accotink offers a peaceful outdoor environment especially during the weekdays. On weekends, Lake Accotink Park offers lake rides, playground merry-go-round, fishing anytime, picnics, and walking trails. The park is maintained... More

wonderful; it is a great refuge in the very busy and loud Northern Virginia. It has some great trails, picnic areas, kayaks for rent, etc. The park is clean and safe.
