Things to do

We are going to be spending a few days at a lake house in Clarksville, VA this week. I was just wondering what kind of things there are to do in the area. We have two teenage sons. One likes to fish, etc. the other doesn't. Thanks in advance for your ideas.

What kind of interests do they have?

There's a lot more to do in the area than people realise.

South Boston Speedway has a racing schedule if they are into races, but I cannot access it from where I am.

Google it and you'll find it.

And you can see reviews here on TA https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie…

We have a lot of history in Southside Virginia, but you have to drive a little to get from place to place.

There are a number of great state parks in the area.

Oconeechee state park …virginia.gov/state-parks/occoneechee#genera…

And Staunton River state park is a designated Dark Sky location for starwatching. …virginia.gov/state-parks/staunton-river#gen…

Both parks are on the lakes and have programs.

Just as a reminder, some local schools start this week, so there will be a change in schedule at the pool at Staunton River state park, and their concessions won't be keeping their same schedule either.

Oconeechee is in a different county, and they have no pool, so that won't be an issue there, as they start school the following week.


Rainy day activities:

You are only 19 miles from the World of Sports, https://goo.gl/maps/HmpKh3o3kM22

19 miles is nothing here, we have no traffic snarls or backups, and it's a 4 lane divided highway to get to the WoS.

World of Sports has bowling, movies, indoor go karts and laser tag


It's starting off hot this week and I hope the fish'll bite for y'all.

Enjoy your visit!
