Occoneechee State Park is a state park near Clarksville, Virginia, located along Buggs Island Lake. Occoneechee State Park is 2,698 acres in size. It is named for the Occaneechi Indians, who lived in the area. "Bacon's Rebellion abruptly ended their prominence in 1676. This armed rebellion is considered to be the first to occur in the New World. It began when Nathaniel Bacon’s plantation was raided by Susquehannock Indians, who had been displaced from their home to the north. Bacon asked Virginia Gov. Berkley to raise a militia and retaliate. Berkley denied the request so Bacon raised a militia, in violation of the governor’s wishes."

  • Lovely park with a great number of trails. There are plenty of campsites and picnic sites as well. The visitor center has a mini museum which tells the history of the region. Really enjoyed our time here and looking forward to coming back for a more extended stay maybe for camping!
  • Did a short stop mid afternoon while driving back from a trip. I was not disappointed! If you're a beginner into hiking these trails are manageable. Seeing the views of the water was relaxing. Loved learning so much at the visitor center, with the information and huge teepee!
