Park It!

Virginia is the only state in the country to have opened its entire state park system at one time. On June 15, 1936, the Virginia State Park System opened to the public with six parks covering 19,000 acres. There are now 36 State Parks in Virginia totaling more than 120,000 acres. The largest is Pocahontas at 7604 acres, and the smallest is the Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park at 1.5 acres. Long name for a small park. What is your favorite state park?
