The State Forests of Virginia are self-supporting and receive no taxpayer funds for operations. Operating funds are generated from the sale of forest products, demonstrating the value of good forestry practices. The forest is also used for applied research on best forest management practices. The forest contains over a hundred acres of seed orchards. These are used for the production of improved pine seed for the Department of Forestry's tree nurseries.
Twenty-five percent (25%) of the revenue received from the sale of forest products is returned to the counties in which a forest is located.
Holliday Lake State Park, operated by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, is located within the Forest. The park offers camping, picnicking, swimming, boating, and hiking. Permanent campsites are installed inside the park.
