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.

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!

Quiet-secluded sites right on the beach!

Pros-

Quiet location 

Beach trails

Beach Access close by overlooking the Chesapeake Bay

Lots of food and stores near by

Dump station

Little Aquarium

Boardwalk

Cons-

Very tight spots and roads leading in (we are 37ft)

No sewer at sites

Never disappoints

We have been coming to this campground since we 1st started camping about 3 years ago and we ALWAYS have a good time! The sites are always clean with the grass cut. The staff is always friendly and they all work hard to make sure you enjoy your time. Weve stayed all over the park; full hookup, water and electric only, super sites…they are all fantastic! If your looking for a great family trip Holiday Travel park is your place!

Don’t consider going if your going to use a trolling motor

After seeing some of the pictures I decided to call them ask how bad all the algae and overgrowth was and was told it was pretty clear. That was not the case, if you don’t plan on paddling with a kayak or maybe a canoe don’t risk it. I was going to take a Jon boat with a trolling motor and there are countless limbs and the overgrowth is terrible you will not make it through. Not the place to consider going if you want to camp out and fish

Best place ever!

Stayed for 3 nights. Absolutely amazing place. Cozy, most sites have privacy, quiet (minus the air force base next door), easy access to beach. Bathrooms are nothing special. Big park. Nice entrance with dump stations, water, free air for tires. Store is big and normally has an awesome snack bar but Covid :/. Very close to all the sites and attractions of Virginia Beach. Would highly recommend. Stayed at site 194. 5 out of 5.

RVs Only / Strict & unwelcoming

Mostly full time RVs, in a tight knit, very small/super quiet community. Its an RV community (nice RVS only) not a campground. We felt like outsiders on our own site. Strict management, always watching you, it was really an unenjoyable stay. Our site was pretty on the pond, thats why im giving 2 stars. No fires allowed. No tents allowed, and don't touch the grass! They are watching. The management had a problem with our camp van. Really can't express enough how rude management was. VERY judgemental and controlling, and if you don't fit in, they let you know. I was googling other campgrounds in the area within 5 minutes of being there. (Outer banks Campground is where we are trying next)

OK

It's OK, typical RV park, sites close together. They don't want older RVs.

DICUSSED

This campground is full of bugs. It also lacks the basic cleaning of bathhouses. They are full of bugs and dirt in both the outside and inside showers and management does nothing to change it.  When I complained I was given excuses. Would I stay there again NEVER.
