Be a part of the celebration. Head on over to the park to meet Ranger Parker Redfox, the Virginia State Parks mascot. Parker is our newest ambassador with a mission to help reconnect children with the outdoors. He will help children understand the connections between the importance of forest habitats, recreational fun in parks, and diversity of species in the outdoors. Stop by, meet Parker, and take a picture with him. There were six original Virginia State Parks which all opened June 15, 1936. Do you know which ones they were? Do you know how many Virginia State Parks there are today? Discover the answers here at Smith Mountain Lake.
