Explore Twin Lakes State Park!

Twin Lakes State Park is a state park in Virginia. It is located in Central Virginia in Prince Edward County.

Twin Lakes State Park, centrally located in Virginia's Piedmont region, provides visitors from all over the Commonwealth with a variety of lakefront activities in a secluded setting. Swimming, camping, fishing, biking, canoeing and hiking are popular activities. The park is home to Cedar Crest Conference Center, a perfect facility for group meetings, family reunions, wedding receptions and company picnics.

The land for Twin Lakes State Park was initially bought from struggling farmers by the federal government during the Great Depression. Two parks, Goodwin Lake and Prince Edward Lake, were founded in 1939 and until the early 1960s were run as two racially segregated parks. The parks merged in 1976 and became Twin Lakes State Park in 1986.

Picnic shelters are available for rental by calling the Reservation Center at 1-800-933-PARK (7275). In addition to shelter rental fee, a daily parking fee per vehicle is enforced. Swimming, boat rental and boat-launching fees are also additional.
