Lake Accotink Boat Race


Lake Accotink served as a water supply for Fort Belvoir until 1963 when the Fairfax County Park Authority opened recreational facilties there, purchasing it from the government in 1965 for $88,250.

A cardboard boat regatta is among park community activities. The Park staff teaches a workshop on constructing a cardboard boat that can be paddled.
