Quiet, peaceful place on the Potomac River. Picnic tables and a decent beach, very shady; not too many folks here on a weekday. A very nice marina is right there, and the facilities were awesome. Just the break we needed on our trip to DC.

Leesylvania State Park is my favorite place to "cool out" by the river watching all types of boats, or get my exercise on by walking or riding my bike. Sometimes I even fish. When I have friends coming for the weekend, we spend one day...More

Hidden secret that we have a beach in nova. But there is an admission fee. This is a pain, but also keeps the beach clean and less crowded. So I have mixed feeling about it. Awesome walking trails with intermittent exercise stations along the way....More
