RV Camping at Lake Fairfax

Lake Fairfax has a little something for everyone. Spend the day fishing. Enjoy a hike or bike ride along the park's outstanding trail system, which connects to the Washington and Old Dominion trail for longer excursions. You can also leave the RV behind and visit a wide range of historical sights and local attractions, including a visit to Washington, D.C. on Metro’s Silver Line from the nearby Wiehle-Reston East station. 

RV Camping at Lake Fairfax is open all year long. RV sites are electric only; however, there is a fill/dump station on the side of the bath house. Electric sites have a maximum electrical output of 50 amp or 30 amp, depending on the site; and do not have water, sewer or cable hook ups. Reserve your site at the Lake Fairfax Campground webpage, over the phone at 703-471-5415, or in person at the camp office. Advanced reservations are preferred to guarantee your site.

Lake Fairfax Park is located at 1400 Lake Fairfax Drive in Reston. For more information, visit Lake Fairfax Park or call 703-471-5415.

Farmers Market Vendors Sought for 2023 Season

Vendor Interest Meeting held on Jan. 20, 2023.

The Fairfax County Park Authority is beginning the Vendor Application process for the 2023 farmers market season. FCPA operates 10 farmers markets across Fairfax County to provide residents access to locally grown products and create market opportunities for area farmers and food producers. FCPA is seeking producers of food and agricultural products such as milk, cheese, certified organic produce, prepared foods, meats and seafood. All local farmers and food producers are invited to apply.

All farmers and producers must come from within a 125-mile radius of Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, Virginia, with a few exceptions for hard-to-find products, such as dairy and organic produce. Markets are strictly producer-only, meaning that all farmers and producers may only sell what they raise on their farms or make from scratch. Vendors are encouraged to source ingredients from local farmers and producers as much as possible.

The New Vendor Interest Meeting will be held on Jan. 20, 2023, and applications will be open on from Jan. 20 to Feb. 10, 2023. A $50 application fee is required before vendors will be considered. Fill out the Interest Form on the Farmers Market website to receive an invitation to the Interest Meeting and updates on the application process.

Questions can be directed to the Farmers Market Coordinator Caroline Hockenberry at
