Occoneechee State Park, Clarksville, VA

On the peaceful shore of beautiful John H. Kerr Reservoir, more commonly known as Buggs Island Lake, Occoneechee State Park is great for outdoor fun and relaxation.

The park has more than 18 miles of trails that meander through the forest and along the lake’s shore. The park has 800 miles of wooded, cove-studded shoreline.

We visited the park's visitor center to learn about the Native Americans who once lived in the area. The park takes its name from those natives.

We strolled on land that was once part of Occonneechee Plantation, complete with terrace gardens, learning more about the land as it was in the 19th century.

I wrote a lot about the history of the place in the photo album.  View Photo Album of Occoneechee State Park.
