Amazing !

My family used to get day passes during the summer we where unable last year because of covid but it’s an amazing family friendly spot

Can’t Wait To Go Back

Went in October 2020. We stayed in a small but nice and cozy site #170 (had water and 30A electric). This place is perfect to unwind and not be too far from civilization. We took the kiddos to the beach and just sat back and relaxed. We were able to maintain a safe distance since the camper access to the beach is separate. Overall loved it and would definitely recommend to all.

It was ok

It was ok, it looks like they were doing some upgrades to the area (adding sites) but a lot of it seemed dated. Staff were very nice but it was not for us. We will probably not be going back.

Unimpressed

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.

Winter break fun!

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.

Great Campground

One of my favorite campgrounds in the Mid-Atlantic region!

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. 

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!
