About Lake Anna, Virginia
The lake has gained in popularity in recent years as a vacation destination and has seen a corresponding rise in retirement and second homes. The manmade lake offers swimming, sailing, boating, fishing, and a range of sponsored events.
Attractions in the lake’s vicinity include vineyards, antique shopping, golf, historic sites, theme parks, and hiking trails. Power boating and sailing are popular among lake visitors and residents, with launching facilities, boats and personal water craft available for rent at several marinas. Sailboating is most popular on the wider southern end of the lake; while water sports enthusiasts tend to congregate in the mid-lake area; and fishermen favor the northern “on Golden Pond” end, fishing for more than 30 species including largemouth bass, striped bass, walleye, catfish, crappie, bluegill, white perch and yellow perch. The lake is served by a number of fishing guide services, and sanctioned tournaments attract competitive fishermen from across the state and mid-Atlantic area.
Lake Anna State Park, offering picnic areas and boat launching ramps, is located directly on the lake’s public side eastern shore. The park has a maintained beach area with snack bar, docks, an exhibit center and several miles of hiking, horse trails and tours including visits to the remains of Goodwin gold mine and gold panning. The state park offers rental cabins for overnight lodging.
