Sleeter Lake Park is a hidden gem located in Round Hill, VA. This beautiful 21-acre park offers something for everyone, from fishing and kayaking to hiking and picnicking. The centerpiece of the park is the 100-acre lake, which is home to a variety of fish, including bass, catfish, and sunfish. Whether you’re an experienced angler or just looking for a relaxing day on the water, Sleeter Lake is a great spot for fishing.
In addition to fishing, the park offers a network of hiking trails that wind through the woods and around the lake. The trails range in difficulty from easy to moderate and offer stunning views of the lake and surrounding hills. The park also has a picnic pavilion and several picnic tables, making it a great spot for a family outing or a group gathering.
Army Colonel Frank Sleeter, the original owner of Hill High Orchards, created Sleeter Lake in the late 1960s when he built a dam along a local creek to irrigate his peach and apple orchards.
Be sure to check it out and experience all it has to offer.

Is Sleeter Lake open to the public?
I had seen information that it was to be open to the public in May 2018. But, when I went there after that date, there was no access available.
Sleeter Lake Park closed down for the winter. The last I heard a couple weeks ago, they were working on a date to re-open it this spring. (It was definitely open for the second half of last summer.)
