This was a nice beach area. I came to hike, but saw many, many people swimming in the water and laying out on the beachy area. The water did not seem great for that though. There were many trails to hike and historical markers to check out. The staff at the Visitor Center were very friendly. There was also a cool nature trail with markers for different trees and flowers. I saw a snake on the trail!

It's good place for summer and they also have small beach you gonna enjoy too. They also have playground for kids too. This park is just great for summer to go in it. For parking you have to pay for it but it's not that bad.

Great place for easy trails and kids. I will NOT be returning, though. Totally deceptively run. Nobody at booth, visitor's center was locked (a lady literally stared at me and my 4 year old through the glass doors), yet somehow there was enough staff that I was ticketed for not paying. I can't even find somebody to talk to about this through their website. Very expensive two hour stroll with my kids....

Nice state park. I think a bit over priced compared to prince William Park which has many more trails and activities (at least in winter). Few trails but well marks and easy to follow. Nice historic sites to see while you walk.

We visited from western Maryland and went down to scout out catfishing and kayak spots for later in the year. This place is perfect!. We escaped the wind and cold in the welcome center which is also a meusum with information on colonial Virginia and a small area for native American artifacts too. The other side of the building is a discovery center about native wildlife very kid friendly☺. The ladies in the center were so friendly!! There is also a gift shop with an interesting variety of souvenirs. We will defiantly be back soon with all our adventure gear! 5 stars for Leesylvania state park! 😁
