Lake Airfield is located in Sussex and Southampton Counties, about eight miles south of Wakefield on Route 628. It is partially owned by VDGIF. It is surrounded by mixed pine and hardwood forest, with numerous cypress and tupelo trees along the shoreline. Water lilies are abundant in the shallow water and add some beauty to the lake. Those who discover its secrets know they’ll be rewarded with some nice fish.
