Getting Outdoors

A few pathways hikers can explore while here include the Beaver Trail, Black Bear Run Trail, Powhatan Forks Trail, and Woodstock Pond Trail, most of which are loop trails.

Visitors to the park can also go fishing. Because of its unique location near the Chesapeake Bay, you’ll find quite a few different species swimming around here.

Our kids beg to go here. There is so much to do and they ask us to do this for their birthdays in lieu of a party. Price seems kinda high, but so much to do that it's worth it!
