Twin Lakes State Park is a state park in
Virginia. It is located in Central Virginia in Prince Edward
Twin Lakes State Park, centrally located in
Virginia's Piedmont region, provides visitors from all over the
Commonwealth with a variety of lakefront activities in a secluded
setting. Swimming, camping, fishing, biking, canoeing and hiking
are popular activities. The park is home to Cedar Crest Conference
Center, a perfect facility for group meetings, family reunions,
wedding receptions and company picnics.
The land for Twin Lakes State Park was
initially bought from struggling farmers by the federal government
during the Great Depression. Two parks, Goodwin Lake and Prince
Edward Lake, were founded in 1939 and until the early 1960s were
run as two racially segregated parks. The parks merged in 1976 and
became Twin Lakes State Park in 1986.

Reservation Center at 1-800-933-PARK (7275). In addition to
shelter rental fee, a daily parking fee per vehicle is enforced.
