Julian Price Memorial State Park
Price Park is a great place right off of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  You can hike a few different type of trails at this park along with other great activities.  You can camp at the Price Park Campground or request a permit to camp at the only back-country site, it is free to camp at the back-country site.  There is a place to rent canoes or kayaks at Price Lake and plenty of fishing opportunities at Price Lake, Sims Pond, or the South Fork River.  There is a picnic and recreation area before you reach the campground with plenty of picnic tables and fields to play in.  All in all this is a wonderful place to spend a nice summer afternoon at.
