Widewater State Park

Widewater State Park officially opened up in 2019. It’s a pretty park with nice river views. There are large picnic shelters (at least one handicapped-accessible), a playground, boat launch, and a nice visitor center with restrooms. However, if you’re into hiking, the only trail through the park totals 1 mile.

101 Widewater State Park Rd
Stafford, VA 22554

Parking fee : $7, $10 on the weekends (April-October) and holidays *

*Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day are the holidays charged weekend rates.

Homeschooling Families are not charged parking fees at VA State Parks if they show their ID card or NOI.

Interesting statue on the roadside where we turned for Widewater. I looked it up online and in short it’s the Aquia Crucifix monument commemorating early religious freedom of Catholics and was erected in 1930.
