Want to hunt in a Virginia state park?

Each year Virginia’s State Parks, managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, offer a wide variety of hunting opportunities.

Managed deer hunts are key to handling the park’s overall deer management program. Participating hunters are asked to support this effort by following harvest guidelines associated with each hunt. 

Safety is an important factor in hunting, so all terms and conditions must be followed, especially when hunting at a Virginia State Park. Terms and conditions address weapon types that permitted to be used, the clothes hunters wear and a required safety course. Find more information, include terms and conditions and hunt maps on the website:

Virginia State Parks Hunting Terms and Conditions:

•      Hunting and camping are permitted only in designated areas.

•      Virginia game laws apply in all designated hunting areas.

All state park hunts require proof of completion of a hunter safety course. This is beyond the requirements of State Hunting Regulations.
Hunters are required to wear a Blaze Color (Blaze Orange or Blaze Pink) hat and vest while hunting in any park. This is beyond the requirements of State Hunting Regulations.
To make a reservation, visit  to participate. All reservation hunts have a $15 reservation fee. Hunters must have an email and create an account in order to reserve a hunting date and location. It is encouraged that you do this well in advance before the reservation period opens, as it can take some time for the account information to process.

All hunts will have a go-live day in September and the sales begin at 9 a.m. so be sure to review this grid for more details on hunt locations and dates. All hunts have special regulations.

Hunting opportunities range from open hunting in designated areas to managed deer hunts. Hunters can also reserve stands or zones on a first-come, first-served basis using the online system.
