We stayed at Lake Fairfax Park while visiting relatives who live nearby. The RV camping area was not fancy, but it was a great location for us. The Skatepark looked pretty cool and was not especially busy while we were there. The lakefront was busier,...More

I have not visited this park for a very long time, like at least 4 years, so I cannot give an up to date review. However, the location is great with many lake view spots to enjoy

We went to the park to go to the Watermine and drove around the park. It has a pavilion with BBQ grills, a lake where you can go fishing(get a license first!), picnic grounds and lots of open space for playing. A very nice day.

Lake Fairfax is a nice place to take a trail walk in the woods. Trying to picnic here was difficult because of all the bees. It is a great place to attend dog agility.

It is nice to have a nearby park for walking and just enjoying nature this time of year. We are constantly amazed that so close to the hustle I'd D.C. That we can find some places to just relax and see others doing the same.

The most obvious thing in Lake Fairfax is the Water Mine water park. This review isn't ov that as I've only seen it from the outside. Lake Fairfax park is a great recreation spot. There are fishing, camping, soccer fields and a cricket field, but...More

Love to come here and meet up with my riding group. We ride the trails with a stop for a picnic lunch. These trails join others that lead into the Cross county Trails and even across Rt. 7 into Great Falls Park.

Lake Fairfax is fairly urban so nix the axe. Don't forget the sunscreen!
