While Fairy Stone State Park might be famous for being home to the legendary stones after which it is named, there's much more for campers to enjoy in this beautiful area than just staurolite.
Located 20 minutes northeast of Stuart in southern Virginia, this 4,700-acre park also boasts excellent swimming, fishing, boating, and hunting opportunities, as well as a scenic ten-mile trail network. If you like relaxing or getting active in the great outdoors, you'll find plenty to enjoy during your stay here.
And with plenty of RV-friendly campsites to choose from, Fairy Stone State Park is the ideal spot for a magical RV camping getaway.
The unique cross-like stones found in the area of Fairy Stone State Park have been attracting visitors to this part of southern Virginia for many years. However, campers who visit the park today have plenty of other reasons for wanting to spend a few nights here.
For many, the highlight is the 168-acre Fairy Stone Lake that adjoins Philpott Reservoir, offering an abundance of recreational opportunities. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, guarded swimming is available from the lake's sandy beach for an additional fee. There's nothing quite as refreshing as a dip in the lake on a hot summer's day, and a bathhouse, concession area, and water toys are all available.
The lake is also a hugely popular spot for boating. For some, that means using the boat launching area to get out on the water. Kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, rowboats, and paddleboats are all available for rent in season. The sheer size of the lake, combined with a ban on gas motors, means there's plenty of serene territory to explore.
While you're out on the water, you might like to try your luck at a spot of fishing. Largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, trout, and more can all be caught here, and there's also an accessible fishing area for people with disabilities. However, you'll need a valid Virginia fishing license before you wet a line.
Another great way to enjoy Fairy Stone State Park is to explore its 12-mile Little Mountain Falls Trail System. This multi-use trail network is open to hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders, with trails available to suit a variety of fitness levels. The Lakeshore Trail is a short, scenic trek that offers beautiful lake views along the way. The three-mile Little Mountain Falls Trail leads you up a steep incline and alongside a meandering stream to a pretty waterfall.
Four miles of hiking trails are available in the Stuart's Knob System on the northern side of the lake, so hikers will find a variety of trails to enjoy in the park.
If you want to set up camp in Fairy Stone State Park and stay a few nights or more, book an RV in Patrick County and then reserve a spot in the park's peaceful campground. Fifty sites are available, 42 of which welcome RVs up to 30 feet long as well as pop-up campers and tents. The remaining eight sites also welcome pop-ups and campervans up to 30 feet long; tents aren't permitted.
All of these sites feature electrical and water hookups, but sewer hookups aren't available. A dump station is also provided and most sites enjoy decent shade, which is very welcome in the summer heat. Leashed and well-behaved pets are welcome in the campground, but you'll need to make sure your pet is attended at all times and clean up after them whenever necessary.
