This is my favorite place to go on a nice day. The trails along the river and through the woods are filled with all manner of wild life. The picnic area is a clean and happy place for a family gathering or just a quiet...More

I enjoyed paddling here on a recent Saturday. There’s a nice floating dock for kayaks (bring your own on car top) at Bushey Point. Saw plenty of ospreys and other birds, and the railroad bridge over the water is cool. Also noticed the fishing pier,...More

This is a stunningly beautiful park situated on the banks of the Potomac River, just a short distance from D.C. This park has lots to offer aside from its natural beauty. Plenty of water sports available. Boating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and more. We took a...More

There is a reason this is the #1 state park in Virginia. I went for a hike this weekend and besides finding excellent trails and clean bathrooms, there were also paw paws there.

Nice park, close by to where I live. There are nice beach areas (if you dare to get into the Potomac). Also, typically can see turtles in a pond.

Beautiful scenic views. Walking and bike trails allow to enjoy the Potomac river view. It has plenty of picnic areas, play ground for young kids, which sometimes play in the river. Restrooms are not very clean, but not as bad as other parks I’ve been....More

Perfect location to get away from the constant rush in Northern Virginia. Close to homes in the community but away from it all. Extremely well maintained and has something for everyone

Great place under a pavilion to have a company picnic! We used the grills next to the pavilion and the bathrooms were not far. Also plenty of parking and a great view of the river.

This is large park for many activities including swimming. But mostly for boaters, with two large boat ramps and tow huge parking lots, you will see many boaters. Offer gas, dump station, offer rental of kayak, canoe, SUP, snacks.

It is not safe for swimming. The cleanliness of the water is in question, there are some undercurrents that are dangerous, and there is underwater vegetation that has been known to ensnare waders and swimmers. There are no... More
