  • Great park! Spent 4 days mountain biking and camping in late September. Trails were in great shape, rides are of varying difficulty - lots of tough climbs. Camping facilities were great, some of the best camping showers I've seen. Definitely going back!
  • It's amazing how big this relatively small state park feels. More than 40 miles of trail are the main attraction. Great fun for trail runners, and the network of trails is well marked and blazed. The trails have enough interconnectivity to allow you to plan trail runs or hikes of a wide variety of lengths. And most of the trails are fine for mountain bikers too. The small lake has a tiny but clean, family friendly beach. And the rangers are helpful and friendly, too.
  • Great state park with a superb lake and hiking/mountain biking trails throughout. I came here for the Odyssey Trail Running Rampage race and had a blast. The campsites are nice (but very close packed, so you hear every noise). We had some young kids next to us and there was lots of crying, which got a little annoying after a while. Tent site reservation costs were a little steep too...
  • Douthat is a wonderful park, located in a beautiful setting. I went at the end of October, it was peak leaf color season and the park was nearly empty! I had cabin 22 which has water running in front of it, and woods to the back and the right side, so its very private. As is the case with all VA state parks, my two golden girls are allowed to come and we hiked all over the place and had a marvelous time. The cabins are rustic, and wonderful. This park is just beautiful, and a wonderful place to unwind---meaning, stop whining about no tv or internet and take some hikes and take in God's beauty.
  • The lake is simply as good as an actual beach! Take it from me, I've lived in Virginia Beach for many years. Very pretty place, and it's great for both swimming, and boating/kayaking/paddle boarding. You're guaranteed to have a good time!
