Occoneechee State Park

On Friday, I visited Occoneechee State Park in Clarksville, Virginia. The park gets it’s name from the Native Americans that called this area home for centuries. While the trails weren’t the most challenging, it was a relaxing hike (for the most part). I did end up cutting my hike short due to some rainy, windy weather. I did just over nine miles total.

This park has several opportunities for camping, including some cabins and an equestrian campground. Horses are allowed on the Pan Handle Multi-Use Trail. This happens to be the trail I did not finish as it was getting too muddy for my boots to handle. I did see several horses that were working their way along with no issue.

Occoneechee hugs Virginia’s largest lake, Buggs Island Lake. The sections of trail I did were close to the water, but I was never able to get a clear view of it.

I hope you enjoy the photos!
