RECREATION PLANNING

State Park Beaches

Water access is one of the priorities for Virginia State Parks. Many park beaches provide swimming, boating, fishing and sunbathing. State parks with beaches and water access include:

Douthat State Park
Hungry Mother State Park
Bear Creek Lake State Park
Twin Lakes State Park
Fairy Stone State Park
Kiptopeke State Park
Smith Mountain Lake State Park
Lake Anna State Park
Breaks Interstate Park
Holliday Lake State Park
Westmoreland State Park
First Landing State Park

Chippokes Plantation State Park, Hughlett Pointand William B. Trower Bayshore natural area preserves, and Parkers Marsh Natural Area also have beaches; however, recreational use is not encouraged at these sites because of the sensitivity of the beach environments.
