Lake James Loves You

4 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Lake James State Park - Visitor Center

We’re spreading the love at Lake James State Park this Valentine's Day! Drop-in to the Paddy’s Creek Visitors Center between 4-5pm to make a valentine gift out of natural materials with a ranger. Grab a free cup of hot cocoa and stroll down to the Cove Bridge with someone special to watch the sunset.

All ages are welcome. Remember that the park will close at 7pm when planning your visit!
