I did the 2mile hike a few weeks ago. Gorgeous birds eye view of the Potomac River. Lots of historic ruins and markers. We got to see some bald eagles and deer. Yesterday I went fishing with my son. Unfortunately it was extremely windy and our free time was short. Some others still were lucky enough to catch some large... More

Best freshwater fishing with a boat! If you own your own craft, pull up to the boat ramp and drop it off, tie off, park and go! The locals are very friendly and helpful, fishing is great and the price is good for a season pass. Single day is $10. Recommend to anyone who likes fishing.

My son (2 1/2 yo) and I came here as part of Virginia State Park's "First Day Hike" event. Parking was free, but normally there is an entrance fee. We drove to the main area of the park not realizing there are actually quite a few hiking trails before reaching the end of the road. The park is well maintained,... More

There are great trails in Leesylvania. Some are in the popular area by the pier but the best are on the other side of the park by the entrance. Our favorite is the trail from Neabsco Road to Powell's Creek. Lots of ups and downs with beautiful views.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon expecting it to be crowded but it wasn't. This place is a must visit for toddlers and babies who appreciate playing in water. There were only a couple of folks relaxing near the beach and we had so much fun playing in the sand and making castles. Considering the distance from DC and entry fee... More

My family decided to spend the Fourth of July weekend together at the park. We were blessed to find the last grill available. We grilled and splashed around in the river. The kids love going to Leeslyvania.

I am glad you were able to find a grill. Leesylvania is really busy weekends in the summer and Fourth of July must have been packed so it is good to hear you still had so much fun. Thanks for writing a review. More

This park has a little bit of everything. I love the historic hiking trails, with markers explaining what the different areas were during colonial times. A small museum, boat ramp, picnic areas, all on the shores of the Potomac River. Drive slow so you can take in the wildlife as you move to your desired area, Great family fun!

I thought it was very pretty , reminded me of the ocean . On the day we went ther were a lot of white caps. It wasn't crowded as some of the other reviewers have stated, but we went on a sunday in October. The visitors center sold candy , even swiss chocolate--so right away I give a 5 star... More

I am glad you enjoyed your visit to Leesylvania State Park. You discovered that the park is not always busy. Generally we are packed on weekends during the summer. Between picnic shelters and boaters, it doesn't take long to have all the parking spaces used. But in the shoulder seasons and week days, it will be much like you found... More
