Yes paved trail, but right alongside airport road, so not peaceful. Parking only at boathouse, where you pay $2 parking fee, need ticket to exit park. You have to walk down the road, past gate to access the paved trail, a bit difficult to get past with a wheelchair/scooter. Would be greatly improved if they had a paved sidewalk from... More

I was expecting much more when they charge you to enter a lake, but I was sadly disappointed. It was a lake, nothing special. They rent boats, but for an entrance fee you get to look at water. They charge for every thing and the kicker is they will rent you fishing equipment but you have to leave to get... More

Great size park for being so close to everything, paddle boats, John boats, the works, awesome side trip for some outdoor time, spent a lot of time here just "escaping" the somewhat hustle and bustle that Williamsburg can be, would recommend a stop if you like the greenery, walking shoes are a good idea

We rented a canoe for each couple and spent about two hours on the water. We could have easily gone longer but wanted to take a hike as well. Area is beautiful! We did the overlook trail which was about 3 miles and took us about 1.5 hours at an enjoyable pace. Spent $10 for the day and had a... More

We stayed in the WIlliamsburg area for a week, and wanted an outdoors activity aside from the theme parks. We rented canoes for an hour... which was not quite long enough for my wife and I, but was about 10 minutes to long for my 8 and 6 year old. The setting was beautiful. We also enjoyed a 2 mile...

We went on the hottest day of the year! So hot we were unable to rent a boat (park attendant said they were not renting boats because of the heat). Prices looked reasonable and a trip across the lake would have been fun. There was a nice walking trail which we did. Terrain in path was a little rough Tree... More

Absolutely loved this park, beautiful views. We rented a canoe, loved that u just went out on water whenever you wanted to go, other places I've canoe at they drive you down river you paddle back. We stayed on lake 2 hours. It's 5 dollars an hour. What a deal. They had paddle bosts, kayak and flat fishing boats to... More

I visited last July and spent an afternoon paddle boating around Waller Mill Park and had a blast! It's beautiful! It's not very big - but you can spend some time exploring the water and that makes a lot of difference. It's only a few dollars to park and rent a paddle boat and it's worth the trip. There are...

Best Kayak rate at $5.00 an hour. HUGE HUGE Lake. There were people out fishing too and they were catching things. You can also rent Jon boats and Canoes. Very quiet and peaceful, and great service. Easy to get too and its not so crowded that you can't enjoy it. Cheap outdoor adventure without the crowds!

This is a great park if you want some simple hiking, geocaching, boating or disc golf! We did a super fun mystery geocache my kids loved! Definitely will be back next time we visit!
