Some good news for those of us already looking for fun and inexpensive close to home weekend trips this fall.
Lake Anna State Park in Spotsylvania is expanding and adding new six bedroom cabin. At Caledon in King George there will be new rustic tent-camping sites and two more large cabins to join the 10 others. An active gem mine is also open at the Spotsy park where you buy bags of sand for $5 to $20 and use the nearby stream to search them for fossils and other gems.
