Twin Lakes State Park RV & Campground Guide


Twin Lakes sits in the central part of Virginia, providing many cultural and lakefront activities for RV vacationers, water enthusiasts, and outdoorsmen. The land was purchased from struggling farmers during the Great Depression by the federal government; it eventually became two parks — Goodwin Lake Recreational Area and Prince Edward Lake — in 1939. The two lake parks merged in 1976, and then about 10 years later, the area was renamed Twin Lakes State Park. This 548-acre historic park now has two beautiful lakes, a hardwood forest, and plenty of acres to explore. The beach area has an environmental education center where visitors can learn and be part of its hands-on nature program. Three cities nearby are Green Bay, Crewe, and Farmville, Virginia.
