How large is the lake? What was here before the lake? Ride with a ranger on our pontoon boat as we learn the history of how the lake was created and the origin of the park. How did the Virginia State Parks get their start? Learn the fascinating history of our park system and of the area around the lake. We will make stops to take in the scenery and for photo opportunities. Life vests will be provided by the park and must be worn at all times. Water and sunscreen are recommended.
You must be present for the safety briefing 15 minutes before the start time in order to board the vessel. Space is limited: pre-registration required at the Main Office/Visitor Center. Unfortunately we cannot take pets aboard the boat. The event is free. Regular parking fees apply. For more information, please call our Main Office at (540) 297-6066 between 8 am and 4:30 pm.
