Once the Leesylvania Plantation in colonial America and the birthplace of Henry Lee III, the Leesylvania State Park now has a wide range of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. Lying along the fresh water of the Potomac River and the Neabsco and Powell's creeks, it offers sport fishing (ideal for large mouth bass), boating, picnicking and delving into nature. The park opened in 1992.
