On the Potomac River’s Northern Neck, this park offers many opportunities for family fun – an Olympic-sized swimming pool and adjacent bathhouse, meeting area, snack bar, camp store, launching ramp for power boats, visitor center, campgrounds, camping cabins, cabins, fishing pier, boat rentals and six miles of trails. Fossil collectors enjoy hunting for shark teeth on the Potomac, and birding enthusiasts find the park an excellent site for spotting American bald eagles, ospreys, kingfishers, great blue herons, common terns, green herons and gulls, as well as wintering waterfowl.

The Potomac River Retreat is an overnight center suitable for extended family reunions and other gatherings of up to 16. Its waterfront location provides docking space at a boathouse. Murphy Hall, atop Horse Head Cliffs, offers fine vistas of the Potomac.
