If you're searching for a beautiful camping destination that's easily accessible from Washington D.C., Richmond, and a host of other major centers, look no further than Lake Anna State Park.

Located around 40 minutes southwest of Fredericksburg and just over a couple of hours from the national capital, this pristine park is home to one of the most popular lakes in Virginia. Swimming, fishing, and boating are all popular pastimes in the park, while there are also some 15 miles of trails to keep hikers and nature lovers entertained.

And with a 46-site campground that can accommodate motorhomes of up to 60 feet, Lake Anna State Park is made for RV camping vacations. Let's take a closer look at the activities you can enjoy in the park during your visit.

Getting Outdoors

As you'd expect based on the park's name, much of the activity in Lake Anna State Park centers on the lake itself. The pretty lake is a popular attraction all year round, but especially during the summer months when swimmers flock to the area.

From Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day, guarded beach swimming is available at Lake Anna's scenic, sandy beach. It's the perfect way to cool off at the height of summer, but please note that a fee applies if you want to swim in the gated area. It can also get quite busy on the hottest days of the year, so don't expect to have the beach all to yourself.

If you'd prefer to be on rather than in the water, Lake Anna is also an excellent fishing spot. Bream, crappie, largemouth bass, and several other freshwater species can be caught in its waters, and a public boat launching ramp is provided.

If you don't have a boat, there are plenty of spots where you can fish from the bank. Or, you might like to let your kids cast a line in the two-acre fishing pond located near the park's visitors' center.

The other main way to spend your time in Lake Anna State Park is to take a hike. Eleven trails wind their way through the park, providing some 15 miles of hiking to enjoy. The one-mile Fisherman's Trail offers an easy stroll for any angler looking for a good fishing spot, while those looking for something more strenuous might like to tackle the three-mile Gold Hill Trail.

Speaking of gold, the Lake Anna area was once the site of a prosperous gold mine, following the discovery of the precious metal there in the 1800s. Today, you can trace the history of gold mining in the region at the visitors' center, while guided tours of the Goodwin Gold Mine are also available.

Camping at Lake Anna State Park

If you want to camp in Lake Anna State Park, search for an RV in Spotsylvania County and then find yourself a site in the park's campground. There are 46 sites to choose from, including:

  • 23 standard sites. These sites have no hookups but can accommodate RVs of up to 60 feet. Modern restrooms and hot showers are nearby, while picnic tables, steel fire rings, and lantern holders are all provided.
  • 23 electric and water sites. These sites offer water and electrical (20-, 30-, and 50-amp) hookups and can accommodate RVs of up to 60 feet. They also offer easy access to restrooms and showers, with picnic tables, steel fire rings, and lantern holders provided as well.

Half of the sites in the Lake Anna State Park campground can be reserved in advance, while the remaining sites are first-come, first-served. If you're keen to get a campfire going, you can purchase firewood from the park office.

If you're traveling with friends or family who don't have an RV rental, they might want to spend the night in the other accommodation options available in the park. These include cabins, camping lodges, and yurts.

Exploring the Area

When you're ready to call time on your Lake Anna State Park RV camping adventure, you don't have to head home straight away. In fact, you'll find plenty of other great destinations within easy reach of this wonderful state park.

If you're fascinated by Civil War history, head northeast to Fredericksburg to explore the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park. If you'd prefer to get back to nature, the breathtaking wilderness of Shenandoah National Park is less than an hour to the west.

Alternatively, you might like to head to a major center, in which case Richmond is around an hour's drive away. While you're there, be sure to tour the excellent Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and take a stroll around the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.

When you rent a camper near Lake Anna State Park, you won't have to go far to find attractions and experiences worth enjoying. Whatever type of vacation you're planning, you'll find plenty to see and do in this beautiful part of Virginia.
