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 476-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.
