Beaverdam Park Camping/Workdays, Gloucester, Virginia

What - Michael Horrell will be leading a two-day work/camping trip at Beaverdam Park in Gloucester, County.

Where - Beaverdam Park is at 8687 Roaring Springs Rd. near Gloucester Courthouse. 

When - the dates for the work/camping weekend are April 22-23, 2023. 

The work includes installing trail blaze markers on the hiking and multiuse trails. The hiking trail is approximately 3 miles from the trail head/Ranger Station to the campground. The multiuse trail is approximately 6.5 miles from the campground to the Route 606 trailhead.

Overnight camping is planned so this could be a nice overnight trip with a loop hike. The plan is to meet at the Roaring Springs entrance at 9:30 AM on Saturday, April 22. Your camping gear will be transported across the lake to the campground by Park Rangers so you will only need to carry a day pack. 6 to 8 volunteers are needed to complete the trail blazing. On Saturday, the group will break into two teams to hike the parallel 3.0-mile hiking and multiuse trails, installing trail blaze markers along the way. On Sunday, Rangers will transport your gear back across the lake to the Ranger Station while the entire group hikes out to the Route 606 trailhead, installing trail blazes along that trail. After reaching the Route 606 trailhead, the Rangers will transport everyone back to the Ranger Station where you parked your car. You will pick up your camping gear at the Ranger Station. Michael says there is a great ice cream store (Shortlane Ice Cream Shop) on Route 17 just south of the Gloucester Courthouse.

Interested members should contact Michael at and let him know you plan to attend. Check out the park’s website by searching for Beaverdam Park in Gloucester, VA. From there you can access the Park’s website and view a trail map.

In addition to your personal overnight camping equipment and food, the only tools needed are hammers to install trail blazes on trees along the trails. Dress for the weather and enjoy the outdoors on Earth Day weekend!
