Romance/Getaway Series - Bear Creek Lake State Park

Less than an hour west of Richmond and nestled in the heart of Cumberland State Forest, Bear Creek Lake is the perfect getaway for the outdoor enthusiast. Activities center on the park's 40-acre lake complete with a boat launch, fishing pier, boat rentals and swimming beach. The park offers camping, cabins, a meeting facility, an archery range, lakeside picnicing, playgrounds, hiking and access to a 14-mile multi-use trail in the state forest.

The park is surrounded by the 16,000-acre Cumberland State Forest, which provides opportunities for a wide range of outdoor activities. Four small lakes in the state forest are managed by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries for recreational fishing. A network of forest roads with and without gates enables great hiking, mountain biking and nature observation.

My Thoughts:
When searching for romantic getaways in Virginia I came across a list of state parks in Virginia that offer cabins, and I thought this was the perfect place for a quiet getaway. It's secluded, peaceful, surrounded by nature, located near water, has private decks and fireplaces. What could be more perfect for a nature loving couple? ...And the cabins have kitchens equipped with the basics (dishes, utensils, pots/pans etc.) so you can save money while getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

1. Peaceful and Quiet
2. Plenty of activity options - boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, archery, grilling and more
3. Economical - Fully equipped cabin and kitchen allowing couples or families to save money on meals

1. No Internet/TV/cell phone service, so if you absolutely need to be connected to the outside world, this is probably not the place for you
2. Bugs/Wildlife - As you would find in any wooded area, there are bugs and wildlife to be aware of, and come prepared with bug spray
