Task Force on the Future of Lake Accotink

The Task Force on the Future of Lake Accotink was convened in the spring of 2023 to review and consider Fairfax County staff’s recommendation that the lake not be dredged.


Facilities and activities vary with the season and include bike rentals, canoe and pedal boat rentals, boat launch, fishing, nine-green double-holed miniature golf course, antique carousel, snack bar, pavilion shelters and picnic areas with grills (some areas may be reserved, call 703-324-8732), restrooms, playground, sand volleyball court and basketball court. Situated along the Cross County Trail, the park has a four-mile loop, natural-surface hiking/biking trail. Loop trail users please note: The trail section by the dam frequently floods during rain events and there is no bypass.
