We never use this place enough! The staff at Algonkian Park does a great job of keeping the park clean and looking amazing. The fields, golf course, picnic tables and etc are wonderful here. I need to use this park more! Great stuff!

We regularly use Algonkian's boat launch area for kayaking. It has plentiful parking for trailers. While there are services available all around the park, there are no services at the boat launch area. There are no boats available for rental. For that, you'll need to go to Riverbend Park.

We have a standard poodle who loves this park as we do. Many trails to hike or just walk along the Potomac. Deer are everywhere. Although we don't play golf the course looks nice. Many families enjoy this park on weekends and it's great to see.

This park is popular in warm weather, drawing many picnic fans and fishermen. It offers a boat ramp to the Potomac, picnic tables, pavillions for rental, golf, mini-golf, cottages for rental, and a pool. It can be very busy during warm weather, but it is a nice respite from the congestion of Northern Virginia. My biggest complaint is jet skiers... More

The kids had a great time at this park. Lots of animals to see,beautiful water views, good trails,and lots of picnic tables. One major drawback however- the bathrooms were awful!!! My kids wouldn't go in them!

We barbecue here at least 3 times a year with friends and family, love it! If you go early you can get a spot with a grill or reserve one for $50-$150 for special occasions (covered area). They have an awesome park with equipment for all ages including baby swings. There are soccer fields and baseball fields where we play... More

Great for quick or long walks, picnicking. The river is a must see any time of the year and any time of the day. May encounter deer, owls, blue herons, etc. on early morning walks on trails or along the river. Sunsets are simply amazing! Bonus for you if you have a kayak or canoe to launch!

From golf to boating, from cabins to pavilions there is a ton of things to do at Algonkian Park. Memories of Girl Scout events, church picnics, graduation parties, a homecoming pictures and long walks will always be cherished when thinking of Algonkian. The sunsets are beautiful there as well.
