Operating Status

Amusements may close early or be put on hold due to weather conditions. Please call in advance to determine the operational status when inclement weather has occurred or is forecasted to occur.

Enjoy our 18-acre lake, wildlife and beautiful scenery while operating a pedal boat or kayak. Our trained staff will assist you when launching and returning from your boat ride. Pedal boat and kayak rentals include U.S. Coast Guard approved PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices.) Whether skilled or novice on the water, you will enjoy the features offered at Lake Fairfax Park marina.

Want to stay on dry ground? Bring a pole and try your hand at fishing from the shoreline or dock. A Virginia State Fresh Water Fishing License is required for anyone fishing who is 16 years or older. Fishing from rental boats is not permitted. Read more about Fishing in the Parks.
