Best Places To Kayak In Virginia Beach

Kayak Beaver Creek Lake

This small lake near Charlottesville is my favorite place to kayak, SUP or have a waterside picnic after work. It's a 20-minute drive from downtown.

Camp at Switzer Lake

Right off Interstate 81, on RT 33 heading to West Virginia is a beautiful lake that only the locals know about. Lake Switzer was named so.

Hydaway Outdoor Recreation Center

If you love all things outdoors, Hideaway Outdoor Recreation Center is the place for you! You can do almost any activity you can think of here.

Canoe or Kayak at Carvins Cove

Part of the cove's allure is that you can literally leave work at 5 p.m. and swim in the water long enough to enjoy the sunset.

Upper James River

Place at the Horseshoe Bend Boat Ramp near Buchanan, VA. A pin on the map will take you there. Takeout will be at the Buchanan City Boat Ramp.

Camp at Sherando Lake

Sherando Lake is a beautifully maintained dog/family friendly campground located between two lakes. Upper Sherando Lake is available for fly fishing only.

Camp at Claytor Lake State Park

Claytor Lake is a very well maintained state park in Dublin, VA. There are four campgrounds available. Campgrounds A, B and C mostly without power.

Catch A Sunset At Kiptopeke State Park

This beautiful state park on the Virginia Eastern Shore offers visitors a very secluded beach, even in the summer.

Bike Camp False Cape

It's hard to beat an outdoor adventure that puts you near the ocean's edge. For this destination, getting there is probably the best part. well maintained road.

Camp at Comers Rock Recreation Area

I didn't have any issues putting "Comers Rock Recreation Area" into my phone's GPS (Waze) and arriving exactly where I was supposed to.
