Staunton River State Park

Staunton River State Park

neatly into the heart of Virginia, about 25 miles from the North Carolina
border, Staunton River offers much to families and outdoor enthusiasts. The
2,400-acre park offers woodlands, meadows and shoreline along the Dan and
Staunton rivers. Cabins built in the 1930s by the CCC and a campground offer
overnight lodging. The equestrian campground offers large campsites and horse
stalls. Access to Virginia's largest lake, Buggs Island Lake, offers freshwater
fishing and boating, along with water skiing and many other aquatic activities.
The park also offers picnic shelters, playgrounds, tennis and volleyball
courts, boat launches, a 9 hole disc golf course, observation field for
astronomy lovers, and more than 17 miles of multi-use trails. This park is the first state park in Virginia to be designated
an International Dark Sky Park
 and is ideal for stargazing!
