There are great views at the waterfront, nice relaxing picnic eating areas and it's a great place to spot birds. We recently kayaked out of this park with a group of friends and had a wonderful paddle. We have also used the picnic areas in the past. We always enjoy this park. It's popular.

We head over to Leesylvania at least once a month or so to do a little hiking along the bay shore... Sometimes I ride my bike over and sit at the pier watching the boats come and go... Very peaceful! I do the yearlong State Park Pass...

Serene, breathtaking views and trails with docks for fishing and water-play. Proposed to my wife here. :)

Visited here recently just to get out the house and into the sun. Brilliant little play park for infants, including my daughters favourite, swings. Beautiful views up and down the Potomac river. A great day or morning out and a lovely place to visit. I will be back!

We were looking for a nice spot to picnic with a view and reasonable fees. We took advantage of one of the first warm weekdays and sat outside in the sun at the gas pier for a bit taking in the bay, the views, and a little bird watching. Fees are reasonable and the area is well kept and we... More

This is a nice state park with easy parking, decent bathrooms and nice picnic areas. There are marked hiking trails and a pier going into the river. The historical information available made the visit more fun. Good for a couple hours of light hiking and having lunch.

Leesylvania Park is a very good state park, it has a number of good well marked hiking trails, kayak rentals, a Park Ranger guided kayak float and an excellent boat ramp and dock. There is a store to buy those last minute food and drink (non-alcoholic).

I'm fairly biased towards hiking. The trails in this park did not do it for me. Compared to nearby Prince William Forest, and Julie J. Metz Wetlands bank I found the trails here over priced and uninspiring.
