Sky Meadows State Park

Delaplane, VA - Park

Sky Meadows State Park is beautiful! We had a wonderful day completely disconnecting (low to no cell service!) and enjoying nature. Below are my tips for specifically visiting with kids: 1️⃣ - Enter through the main entrance on State Route 710. Its address is 11012 Edmonds Lane, Delaplane, VA 20144. Once you pay the $7 per car fee, make your first right towards the "Picnic Area/Children's Discovery Area." Its a MUCH less busy area with parking and only a couple families vs. the historic home area which had overflow parking. 2️⃣ - Love the views from on top of the Picnic Area. You will also find permanent restrooms here, the Sensory Explorer's Trail (perfect for younger kiddos!) and of course the best part for us the Children's Discovery Area.⁣ 3️⃣ - After we explore the first area for a couple hours, we drove to the main area and explored a bit. It was much busier with maybe 50 cars verses the 1st area which only had 3-5! ⁣ 4️⃣ - Bring a thermos of hot water to warm up with hot chocolate!⁣
