“Wonderful trails”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Rode Turkey Trot ride Sunday afater Thanksgiving. I have to say the runners, bike riders and others on the trail were so sensitive to the horses. They were great.

“Spacious but trail is not clearly marked”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Lake Fairfax has a waterpark, and it's great for kids. It also has a campground. I took my dog there several times, and it took me awhile to find the trail, which is not clearly marked. When I found it, it ended behind the campground area, and in order to get back to where I parked, I had to either back track on the trail or walk through the campground to the parking area down this walkway than back to my car. It's not a place for serious hiking.

“Our favourite local get away.”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

There is a strange tranquility in this place. Its our favourite spot to go spend a few hours. Great for our son to ride his bike or just enjoy the walk. There are pedal boats that you can rent. We managed to have the picnic areas more than once and enjoyed a nice lunch. I have noticed that it is not as clean as it used to be. Been visiting this park for few years now...but this year it has been bad so far. There are a lot of picnic tables and grills but gets occupied fast in summer.

“Suburban DC Jewel”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Trails for mountain biking, horses, hiking/running/walking. A dozen fields for soccer, softball, football, field hockey, and lacrosse. Dedicated area for cricket games. Lake for fishing. Water mine water park (admission fee). Playgrounds. Picnic areas with grills (very popular on weekends). Huge campground within 17 miles of DC. What doesn't Lake Fairfax have?
