Things to do
Start your visit with a day at Lake Anna State Park, which features a fishing area, a boat launch, and swimming. If you'd rather stay dry, hike the park's 15 miles of trails, take a horseback ride, or rent a bike and hit the trails. You can also tour Goodwin Gold Mine to get a feel for the area's mining history.
If you're looking for adventure, make some waves and rent a boat or a jet ski from local companies like Lake Anna Jet Ski or Sturgeon Creek Marina. Three much-loved areas of the lake for boating are The Islands, The Sandbar, and the State Park Cove. Make the most of your getaway and hire a local fishing guide from One More Cast Guide Service or Rockhead Guide Service. For the area's best hunting, head straight for Forest Green Shooting Preserve in nearby Spotsylvania.
