Lake Anna Facts
- In 1968 Virginia Power & Electric Company began purchasing more than 18,000 acres in the counties of Louisa, Orange and Spotsylvania near the North Anna and Pamunkey Rivers which would be used to create Lake Anna
- In 1972 the lake area was cleared and Hurricane Agnes provided unanticipated rainfall to the area, filling the lake in only 11 months, originally projected to take three years
- Lake Anna is divided into two sections, impassible by water; the cold/public side has public marinas allowing for access but the warm/private side has no public access and the water temperature is slightly higher
- The cold/public side covers approximately 9,600 surface acres and the warm/private side covers around 3,400 acres
- Lake Anna is one of Virginia’s largest and cleanest freshwater lakes
- Lake Anna is 17 miles long, up to 1 ½ miles wide, has more than 200 miles of shoreline, and covers at least 13,000 acres

Most other waterfront and water oriented properties are a 3 - 4 hour drive, making this prohibitive.
