Virginia's Goose Point Campground features boating, swimming, and strenuous day hiking among its recreational options.
There are several miles of hiking trails that wind their way in and around Goose Point and the surrounding parklands. These paths offer several glimpses of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains and provide access to the nearby Philpott Lake. The hiking trails around Goose Point vary in difficulty and are managed by the local park service, so make sure to check out the maps available online before planning an expedition on foot. If you're planning a day trip with your canine companion, it's essential to clean up any messes they leave behind to avoid bothering any future guests. May sure they stay on leash throughout your hike.
Overnight guests have 63 different sites to choose from inside of Goose Point. 53 of these sites provide electrical hookups and plumbing for guests who've come in either a pop-up camper or recreational vehicle and run $25 per evening. A dump station for RVs is centrally located here as well, in case you're a long-term camper. Group electric sites are available for parties of up to 15, for $25 an evening. Guests with dogs should keep their canines indoors throughout the night while keeping them clear of public structures. Note that the campground's roads are narrow and difficult to navigate, so keep this in mind if you have a large vehicle.
Anglers can try their luck in Philpott Lake, provided they've brought all the necessary equipment. Commonly seen species are bluegill, crappie, and catfish among others. Undeveloped shorelines are fine for your canine to hang out on, provided they're restrained and not bothering other guests.
