We usually just take some food and find a picnic table and after taking our dog for a walk, have some lunch and enjoy watching the squirrels and deer around the area.

Lots of nice hiking trails, rental canoes and paddle boats and sooooooo much more. Reserve a sight for a family picnic or a large site for your group.

You can do many activities in this huge park and it has bridges, dense forest, marshland, a lake, and playgrounds.

A fun time with the family. We walked the trails and the kids had fun playing on the playgrounds. Recommend the playgrounds if you have small children.

Best to visit in Fall and Spring as Winter can be bleak. Summer is just too crowded and many bugs. Shelter #3 has a terrific view of the lake and it can be very tranquil

I love Newport News Park! It's a great place to camp with an RV. We enjoyed being on the water, hiking, and just relaxing in a serene environment.

lots of trails for running or walking, with some nice historical plaques sprinkled around the park. They also have a disc-golf and golf course too

You cannot launch your boat at the park. They have paddle boats and canoes for you to rent.
