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:

Accotink Playground Temporarily Closed: Due to safety concerns we have closed the playground until it can be repaired. Unfortunately, supply chain issues prevent us with knowing a reopening date.

Accotink Trail Temporarily Closed: A section of trail near the dam and in front of the spillway will be closed through Spring 2023 as we construct a new bridge. Click the link below to learn about alternate routes to circumnavigate 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. 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.
