Pro Tip: Arrive by 8am. Too many will try to enter the park between 830 and 9 and the park entrance will get backed up. It is a one lane road and every car has to stop at the parking station.
State Park charges $7 parking per carload. If you have a VA state park permit, please have it on your mirror/dash (they also accept REI receipts for payment) otherwise have $7 handy for quick entry into the park. Once you enter the park you will continue straight on State Park Rd for 1 1/2 miles. You will run into the parking lot. Race morning packet pickup will take place under shelter #2 which is located on the right side of the back of the parking lot.
Bathrooms: There are two indoor options. One is 1/2 way into the parking lot on the right. You will see soda machines out front. The other is near shelter #2 beyond the rear of the lot.
