Spend the weekend camping or RVing at Greenville Farm in Haymarket, and experience a 200-acre working farm in action. You can also spend an evening under the stars at Prince William Forest National Park, which offers tent, RV and cabin sites, as well as 35+ miles of hiking and biking trails. Hikers should also explore the scenic Bull Run Mountain trails. After, spend the day shopping local in the historic Town of Haymarket.
At Locust Shade Park in Triangle or Lake Ridge Park, rent a paddle boat, go fishing or play a round of mini golf. Locust Shade even has batting cages. If you’ve graduated beyond mini golf, Golf Styles ranked Prince William as one
of the Top 100 places to play golf.
