Culpeper County Parks & Recreation would like to inform all residents that the County of Culpeper has officially taken ownership of the grounds at Mountain Run Lake Park and its amenities including the playgrounds, dog park, four (4) shelters, and common area.
As a Department, we are extremely excited about having this unique opportunity to install/construct various recreational amenities in order to provide leisure opportunities for the residents of Culpeper County - MORE ANNOUNCEMENTS TO COME SOON!!  

Adjacent to Mountain Run Lake, this park, set in the rolling countryside of western Culpeper County, offers stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Birds, waterfowl and wildlife are abundant and can readily be viewed throughout the year. Only 15 minutes from Downtown Culpeper, this is one of the nicest places to go for a picnic, either under one of the four covered shelters or many other picnic tables. Play areas are provided for children.

  • Four (4) picnic shelters that seat between 12-60 people
    • Shelters are first come first served UNLESS they are already reserved.  For details on reservations, click here.
  • Stand alone Restrooms
  • Charcoal grills at shelters
  • Playgrounds for ages 2-12
  • Dog Park 
  • Boat launch

Future Projects
