Friends of Occoneechee State Park

The Friends of Occoneechee State Park are citizen volunteers from Virginia’s Southside region that enjoy supporting the park’s mission and operation. We are dedicated to furthering the development of educational and entertaining programs for all ages and to spreading the word about the beautiful park we have right here in our backyard.

Occoneechee State Park is located on the shores of Kerr Reservoir/Buggs Island Lake just outside of Clarksville, Virginia. Facilities include cabins, campsites, an equestrian campground, picnic shelters, an amphitheater, a Splash Pad, a playground, boat ramps, and a private concession offering boat rentals and snacks. The park also has 20 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The visitor center and museum introduce visitors to Native American history and the indigenous Occoneechee people for whom the park is named.

Annual membership dues for the Friends of Occoneechee State Park are only $10. Volunteers can earn awards as a Thank You for your volunteer hours at the park. Benefits are awarded according to hours accumulated and range from annual park passes to camping and cabin privileges.
