Lake Barcroft is community of over a thousand homes on a beautiful wooded lake in Falls Church, Virginia. The lake has five private beaches, staffed by lifeguards in the summer, and allows electric powered pontoons, sailboats and self-propelled boats. Lake Barcroft has a real sense of community, bound by the beautiful lake and all its wildlife, and prides itself on many annual events including parades, Fourth of July fireworks, and organized and informal social gatherings held at its beaches.

Lake Barcroft itself and its beaches are privately owned for use by dues paying residents. Those nonmembers found on a beach or the water, who are not accompanied by a resident, are deemed to be trespassing and will be cited by Fairfax County police who regularly patrol the area.
