State Park: Fish, Hike, Picnic, Walk, Water Sports
On a peninsula where Aquia Creek and the Potomac River meet, Widewater provides access to both bodies of water. The park lies on non-contiguous parcels surrounded by private property. Two parcels are open for access. The park has a visitor center, picnic shelters, playgrounds, restrooms, canoe-kayak launches and a hiking trail. There are no designated swimming areas. Swimming is hazardous because of swift currents, sudden drop-offs and unseen obstructions. Hours: 8 a.m. to dusk.
