The facility is huge. The staff was very nice. Spent a week here in the off season. The site was half gravel and half grass. The grading wasn’t great and the gravel was thin. Lots of water puddles and the grass was swampy. I spent more time vacuuming than I should have.
The roads around the campground could use repair.
The main playground was a mud pit. No mulch or sand to absorb the water. The other playgrounds were small and/or run down. The mini golf course is run down - missing bricks and flooded ball holes.
The laundry facility was clean and in working order.
There also isn’t much diversity in this area.
We don’t plan to return.
Good little spot for last minute camping in town. There is a lake for fishing with boat rentals available. Not very quite as it’s located near a busy road. (Saunders road). You can hear cars ambulance etc. all night. You must reserve your spot in advance. RV, tent, hammock, and fire friendly.
This was our maiden voyage for the family RV--we decided on this destination kind of on a whim and were happy with our decision. We've been tent campers forever and were excited to see what RV camping was all about.
This is a HUGE complex with various "levels" of sites. From basic to fancy, crowded to sparse. I think we would've felt a little claustrophobic if it were the summer, but this was great for us in the off season. Our loop was packed and gravelly, but others open during the off season were a little more roomy and "polished."
We enjoyed biking all over the place (including a family-friendly bike trail to the VB boardwalk), playing on the many small playgrounds, swimming in the dome-covered pool (there are three more of them for warm weather), playing mini-golf, and enjoying our time.
Bathroom/shower houses were clean and well-positioned close to all of the camping loops.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
