This is a great campground on the Eastern Shore of VA. As with most VA state parks, it's popular with RV's and campers, but it was great for tent camping as well. There are numerous trails and water/beach access points throughout the park. The sites are spacious, and even though it has a lot of sites, they are spread out throughout different loops so it doesn't feel crowded. As with most campgrounds near sea level, it is prone to flooding if there's a lot of rain.
There's also a nice little store where you can purchase camping essentials and souvenirs.
Definitely loved the view of the water at the beach and the drinks at Jackspot. You can order them online and go pick them up - which we loved. Many options including smoothies for kids!
The spots were pretty tight, but we assumed as much. The bathhouse was superb! So clean and bright/airy. The playground was just enough to keep my kids entertained. The pool area looked nice, but of course was closed as we visited in April.
Check-in was a little congested with everyone and their rigs, but the process itself was a breeze. Love the gym and arcade in the store - was unable to access due to covid.
Stayed here for a few nights. The sites vary widely in size and access so make sure you know where you are staying. We had great dune side site right next to a boardwalk to get out to the beach. Be careful of the tent sites, while many were under the cool and unique trees, others were partially flooded due to rain and time of year. The trail system across the road that is also part of the park is extensive and offers lots to do. Be mindful that if your site is not on the road that runs along the beach side you will likely have a good amount of road noise. You want to be picky about your site.
With plenty of hiking, kayaking, fishing, wildlife viewing, and other outdoor opportunities, Kiptopeke State Park is a perfect base camp location!
The actual campsites are small and close together, with little privacy. The bathrooms had running water, but only cold. The camp store was small but sufficient.
The beaches were awesome and the trails were well groomed and provided some great hikes for a family or couple just looking to get out.
We will return to Kiptopeke to camp so we can kayak around the bay and near the concrete ships in the harbor.
First site we’ve stayed at since getting our travel trailer. Good experience; we didn’t use the facilities aside from a stop in the market and playground for the kiddo, but it’s apparent it’s all well maintained and plenty to keep kids of all ages busy. The beach is larger than expected, and hours of the market and restaurant are great. We were pleased that even with a lot of kids and some larger groups, overall it stayed pretty quiet. We did notice for some of the sites the hook ups for one site are essentially in the outdoor living/camping area for the next site. Though we lucked out being on an end site, we intentionally did not hook up our sewer until ready to dump before leaving so it wasn’t run in our neighbor’s site.
Nice campground, our 17’ tt on lot #283 a short site we fit fine, full hook up our sight was crowned and stone. Oceana air base is near, fighters flying by and over all the time, so loud so cool, wow! Free parking lot, down on Pacific and 9th at beach area, curtesy of campground. Huge camp store kids will love lots for all. A heated covered pool, putt putt, much more.
