This historic park is Virginia's most visited state park. There is a beach within the park's borders where visitors can swim, launch boats, fish, or rent kayaks on Chesapeake Bay. Swim at your own risk as there are no lifeguards on duty. In addition to beach activities, park visitors can also enjoy hiking, camping, picnicking, cycling, and discovering the many plant and animal species. There is also an educational center where visitors can learn about the history of the park. English settlers first landed here in 1607.
