Twin Lakes State Park

Prince Edward and Goodwin are two Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation lakes that are the main features of Twin Lake State Park located in Prince Edward County. The park offers campgrounds, cabins, boat ramps, rentals, and swimming. Some fish structures have been built in an effort to concentrate fish for anglers. Grass carp have been stocked to control aquatic vegetation. Both lakes have sunfish, largemouth bass, crappie, and channel catfish. The area is excellent for family outings. Sampling indicates that largemouth bass sizes are small and numbers relatively high. This population structure lends itself well to anglers who are interested in catching high numbers of bass as opposed to a few larger fish. The largemouth bass population in both lakes is being managed with a 12-16 inch slot limit to try to increase the numbers of quality bass in the lake.
