The New River Trail State Park was named a Millennium Legacy Trail by the White House and now currently features an annual triathlon. Dine at Hungry Mother's The Restaurant, and discover award-winning meals and facilities that accommodate up to 300 people. Historic battlefields and archeological digs play an integral role in preservation of Virginia's lands. Discover the universal access facilities at Lake Anna where all ages and abilities enjoy fishing the stocked waters. From wonderful nature gift shops to wilderness equestrian trails to conference facilities, Virginia State Parks are within an hours drive of every resident and visitor within the Commonwealth.

Climate - Virginia, as a whole, experiences high humidity throughout the year. Summers promise high heat and humidity, which can make rigorous activities uncomfortable and difficult. Spring and fall are the best times to visit the area to avoid the heat. The mountains to the coast receive high rainfall during these seasons, so rain gear is recommended. Winter precipitation levels vary from year to year. The humidity makes temperatures feel colder during the winter as it makes the summer temperatures feel hotter. Weather on the coast is generally more mild than that in the piedmont.

Location - Virginia State Parks are located throughout the Commonwealth stretching into every travel region.
