Leesylvania State Park offers canoe tours, guided historic and nature walks, children's fishing tournaments, Junior Ranger day camps, and historical programming. The park participates in Virginia's State Parks: Your Backyard Classrooms, a 40 activity curriculum guide for use by teachers of grades K-12.
The Visitor Center is located off the main road near the picnic area and is accessible by a paved walkway. It includes appreciation markers along with historical and environmental exhibits. In addition, it has a small gift shop. Here you can see historical artifacts such as Light Horse Harry's revolutionary uniform, Native American and Civil War artifacts. Additionally, the Visitor Center has graphical displays of the Lee plantation and taxidermy mounts of native animals and fish.
The amphitheater is located off the main road near the Lee's Woods trail head and is accessible by terraced steps or a hard-packed rock dust trail. Contact the park for reservation and use information.
