Lake Anna’s #1 Gift Shop

If you are looking for a souvenir, special gift or lake life style apparel, our shop is where you’ll want to visit while you at Lake Anna. We sell LKA™ Wear as well as Unsalted Coast apparel, with dozens of tees, long sleeves, hoodies, caps, visors and more to shop. Our decorative items include Go Jump signs, porch boards, maps, locally produced artwork and a special Oaksby Design Collection that includes everything from scented candles to drinkware, towels to mugs. Children will love trying to find the Lake Anna Monsters hidden in the shop and will probably want a Lake Anna Monster tooth necklace or a sticker! Don’t worry our kid’s items are affordable, too! No trip to Lake Anna is complete without a visit to Lake Anna Outfitters.

Paddling Season Underway

The lake is warming up to 70+ degrees and our paddling season has begun. We are renting single sit-on-tops, tandem sit-on-tops, SUPs, canoes and pedal boats for half, full and multi-day adventures. We have instituted an online reservation/booking system accessed by clicking the PEEK PRO button on this site to make booking your rental fast and easy! If you are booking last minute, you can always give us a call, too at 540.894.3540. When planning your visit keep in mind we are just a half mile away from Fisherman’s Point, part of Lake Anna State Park, where you’ll find undeveloped shoreline with coves and beaches to enjoy. Yes, you can swim and picnic there as it’s public land! We are also only a quarter mile paddle from Lake Anna Taphouse and many of our visitors enjoy that paddle route along with an adult beverage and lunch/dinner. The Taphouse is family friendly with firepits and outdoor games. We hope to see you this spring!

Lake Anna Taphouse is just across the lake from our location!

Winter 2021

We have held our most successful Christmas Open House campaign yet and will wrap up this weekend (December 19-20). Thank you to everyone that shopped with us! If you’ve been to the shop before you noticed all our exterior and interior renovations plus dozens of new items – everything from Campfire Colors to Roasting Forks, Lake Anna Monster tees to Unsalted Coast hoodies, we really upped our apparel and gift game. If you were one of our many new customers, we hope you’ll come back often! We’re expecting a load of Free Free and Big Fish kayaks the second week of January and planning a big Mid-Winter Sale around Valentine’s Day. See our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/lakeannaoutfitters for a list of the new kayak inventory and call if you’d like to purchase anything as they won’t last long and we won’t get more until April. We also have a good inventory of Tahe Tough Tech SUPs and YOLO sups.

PFDs and paddles are included with your rental fee. Seat backs are provided with the tandem kayaks.

Reservations are recommended if you are planning on paddling with us on a weekend.
