Fantastic campground with a unique experience

Fantastic campground. Very basic, yet had a great appeal. It was minutes to walk to the bay, and only minutes to drive to Virginia Beach center. Each site was open, yet surrounded by trees, so you still felt somewhat secluded. It was so relaxing to sit in a tube and float on the bay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the facilities were very clean. Be forewarned, it is directly next to the army base. We have stayed here twice. When we stayed to the left, closer to the camp store, we heard nothing. It was very quiet. Our 2nd trip, we stayed to the right. We could throw a stick and hit the government fences. Every night, we heard aerial training, saw fighter planes flying overhead, even had a helicopter nearly put out our fire. One night, we woke up at 2am to m80s going off in our ears. It is all training and there was no danger at all, but it was quite noisy for my comfort. Was pretty cool to hear the star spangled banner play every morning at 9am. It was definitely an experience I will never forget! I will definitely be visiting again, but choosing to stay closer to the store next time!

One of the most scenic and peaceful

One of the most scenic and peaceful campgrounds in the state of Virginia, you are right by the water (it’s almost like an island), 2 minutes walking distance from a secluded beach, add two more minutes to that and there is Paradise Ocean club. Fresh ocean air! The beautiful trees! Serenity. Pricey in the summer time, but they have a monthly winter rate $756 (not proratable) from October 1 thru April 30. Staff is awesome, we stayed here on and off for two years in a row before traveling. 

On the bay

Too crammed for our liking. Know lots of people that stay here and love it, seems like more of a party campground. Beautiful grounds.

Meh

Not a bad campground, nice area. LOTS of overhead noise from jets (you do get use to it).

Some people in the campground started BLARING music at 2am and just partying hard. Tried to contact ANYONE to make it stop, but no one ever answered phones or contacted us back (or said anything to the obnoxious people). Said something to staff the next day and they didn't seem to care. Won't be back.

Love VA State Parks!

Great campground! Right on the water (just walk over the dune!). Sites are not as spacious as other VA State Parks, but you're still not crammed on top of each other.

GREAT walking/hiking area across the road from campground. LOTS of trails to spend the day on!

Outstanding campground with easy access to the beach!

We were very pleased with our camping experience at First Landing State Park.  The campground is well maintained and has a knowledgable and friendly staff.

The drive thru campsite we chose was clean, level, and came equipped with a fantastic fire ring and picnic table.  There was lots of room on the site, and we could have set up a couple of tents toward the back if needed.

Access to the beach and surrounding hiking/biking trails was the real strength of this location!  It is certainly not wilderness camping, but with water and electric hook ups, we set up a successful basecamp for exploring the region.

The weather was great for late October, and the crowds were minimal.  We will likely make this an annual trip.

Eastern Shore gem

Nice park. 1st two rows of sites have almost ZERO tree cover. 1st row not very level sites. Not quite as spacious/spread out sites as other state parks, but it's on the bay! Tent sites are wooded, no rvs allowed.

Very ordealy

Not a bad spot. More for military families but you can still enjoy yourself.

Nice wooded spots

Really liked the site spots here. Most are pretty big, set back from where you pull your car in. We have a rooftop tent so just be mindful that some parking spots are at a heavy slant and you cannot cross the barricade to drive in further. Therefore, make sure you look at the picture of the exact spot you reserve ahead of time, which is also a great feature on the site.

Awesome park - great location!
