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!

We had a family outing here and though the weather was cold and windy, the park was beautiful. The chickens were out in full force around the antique house and were quite friendly. We took a few connecting trails and had a pretty short walk,...More

Accessible, just off Route 50, Sky Meadows is a lovely walk in itself as well as a gateway to trails in the surrounding hills, with great views and gateway to the Appalachian Trail, for the more ambitious. Great site for a picnic or a hike....More

The park is located not very far from Rt. 50 and I-66, which are major arteries of Virginia. Rolling hills, lush greenery, beautiful ponds and horses add beauty to the area. An ideal spot to spend a day doing whatever activities one wants to do...More

I wasn't up for a mountain hike and my boyfriend didn't want a paved trail so we settled on Sky Meadows as a happy medium. There are an abundance of trails to choose from, plenty of benches for resting points along the way and hills,...More

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.

We have to have at least one person that is 18 years old. The reservation must be in that person's name and they much be present.
