Before heading out, first check with individual sites on the Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail for any COVID-19 policies or closures. This information is typically posted on a site's own website.

Oak Grove Lake makes up about half of the park’s 130 acres. Most of the park’s remainder is composed of forest that includes dense growth pines, maples, and tulip poplars. The sizable lake and mixed woodland provides an attractive habitat for dragonflies, butterflies, and songbirds. A 1.5 mile multi-use and ADA Accessible trail circles the perimeter of the 65-acre lake.
