Lake Accotink - Experience solitude

This 493 acre park provides excellent opportunities to relax, learn, and enjoy the natural resources of both Lake Accotink and Accotink Creek. In addition to trail systems and waterfront activities Lake Accotink Park offers many family-friendly activities including, picnic areas, class, camps, and special events.
