From Washington, D.C., or Richmond, Virginia, take Interstate 95 to the Thornburg Exit (Exit 118). Go west on State Route 208 and follow signs to Lake Anna State Park. Drive, about 11 miles on SR 208. After passing a high school on your left, the road takes a sharp left turn. You will see a pretty white farm house on the corner and a sign for the state park indicating you should follow SR 208 and bear left. Go approximately 7 more miles and turn right onto SR 601. Travel 3.3 miles and turn left into Lake Anna State Park.
Shortly after the park entrance, you will have to pay a park entrance fee. Continue following the main entrance road until it ends at the beach and main parking area. At the back of the parking lot, you will see the Lake Anna State Park Visitor Center (open Memorial Day to Labor Day). Follow the sidewalk past the visitor center and boat-rental area to the trailhead.
