I have Stayed in an RV and the facility is clean and with tons of things to do from fishing, hiking, s’mores, hanging on the sandy beach and canoeing. I highly recommend you take a trip to Lake Anna VA.

There's a nice boat launch from the state park. Excellent fishing for bass and stripers! Weekends can be kinda crazy with the jet skis. But there are lots of coves to try to land the big one.

Dogs are not allowed on the designated beach area. I believe they are allowed on other parts of the beach passed the ropes.
