Lake Accotink Park

Lake Accotink - Experience solitude

It’s hard to believe that the beltway is less than a mile away when you’re standing on the tranquil and quiet shores of Lake Accotink Park. 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.

Under ConstructionNOTICE:

Trail users will not be able to circumnavigate the Lake Accotink Loop trail due to construction. A section of trail near the dam and in front of the spillway will be closed from June 6, 2022 through Spring 2023. The trail closure is due to the construction of a new bridge over Accotink Creek just below the spillway. The construction will result in trail users being unable to cross the creek or complete a full loop around the lake. The Cross County Trail is unaffected by this construction and will remain open.

Alternate Routes

Thank you for your patience.

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.

Loop trail users please note: The trail section by the dam frequently floods during rain events and there is no bypass.
