Activities at Westmoreland State Park

Beaches & Recreation on the Potomac River


A historic state park in central Virginia, Westmoreland State Park was established in 1936 on the Northern Neck of the Potomac River. One of the six original state parks, Westmoreland was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s.

An hour drive east of Fredericksburg, the 1,311-acre Westmoreland State Park is the perfect beach fro the outdoor enthusiast. Check out the beachfront along the Potomac River, best explored by the popular Beach Trail – where the kids can search for shark’s teeth.

Boating and fishing are also encouraged – so be sure to set up shop on the Westmoreland fishing pier and catch some striped bass, spot and bluefish in the Potomac River, or catfish, bream, bass and crappie from Rock Spring Pond.

Westmoreland State Park also features hiking trails, picnic shelters and visitor centers. Choose from seven hiking trails, totaling six miles of pathway, and be sure to trek to the top of the Horsehead Cliffs for an amazing view of eastern Virginia and beyond. During your time at the park, be sure to keep an eye out for ospreys, kingfishers, great blue herons, and even American bald eagles.
