I hiked a trail in the park last week end with my Yellow Lab, who loved it more than I did. Good trails and several routes to choose from there. This is a very nice and under used location from what I could see.

Really fantastic park. The trails were some of the best-groomed that I've seen in a while, and the hiking was easy/moderate, depending on which section you're in. The weather wasn't great when we visited, but the trails were still in good condition. The scenery is...More

The rangers were very informative and we enjoyed our hike. Wear socks and long pants and use bug spray to keep the ticks off. Worth your time to enjoy such a wonderful place. We'll be back. Thanks again Virginia State Parks!

At the campsites, yes. There aren't any at the historical site, but there is an area within the park with picnic tables. You go right shortly after passing the first guard house.
