Places to Picnic

One picnic shelter can be rented from 9 a.m. to dusk (all day). It is a large shelter and is available weekends only from April 1 to June 15 and Sept. 15 to Nov. 15. The shelter is available seven days a week during the rest of the year.

Hiking, bicycle trails and self-guided historical and nature trails available.

A new 3,800-square-foot visitor center was opened in 1995 as a result of a unique partnership between Virginia State Parks, Virginia Power, Old Dominion Electric Cooperative and the Historic Staunton River Foundation. Displays on the history of the area and exhibits on electric energy cover about half the center's floor space.
