Campgrounds: Convenient to Washington, D.C.

Paddling Paradise Burke Lake Park Campgrounds and Lake Fairfax Park Campgrounds are located in northern Virginia. You camp in the peace and quiet of beautiful park settings surrounded by acres of forest, yet have the convenience of easy access to metrorail that can put you at the museums, memorials, galleries and other attractions of Washington D.C. in just minutes, giving you the best of both worlds.


Fish are jumping

The campgrounds at Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, Virginia, have 100 wooded campsites (no electric or water hookups), a bathhouse with sinks, showers and toilets, a dump station, public phones, a camp store, ice, picnic tables, grills and fire rings. The campgrounds are open Mid April to late October.

The park's centerpiece is a 218-acre lake with a phenonmenal largemouth bass population that makes it one of Virginia's most popular fishing holes. Bait and tackle sales, row boat rentals and a boat launch are also available.
