68 Reviews of First Landing
First Landing is a gem.

This park is a dog friendly, peaceful gem where you can choose to hike just in the woods or even hike to the beach. The camp grounds are nice and kept well. Campers are typically laid back and fun. Fantastic park and one of our favorite places to go for some quality family time.

Great location for a weekend getaway

First Landing is a great, family friendly campground for all to enjoy. Access to the beach is a plus, the park rangerd do their job well, and many great amenities are available. Highly recommend!

Our favorite State Park

FLSP is a real Gem in the midst of a very busy Virginia Beach. The campsites range from tenting with no hookups to 20, 30, and 50 foot sites with water and electric. There are also about 20 cabins on the Trail side. The only sewer hookups are for the three Camp Host sites located throughout the Park. There are nice clean showers located around the campground. There are beaches with boardwalk access over preserved dunes. There are no lifeguards. Across the road from the campground are fabulous hiking trails, a bike trail, and another beach area on a tidal lake. The variety of activities within the Park, including Ranger led activities, along with easy access to the Virginia Beach boardwalk via the local bus system, biking, or personal vehicle, make this State Park the only place we stay in VaBeach. We love this Park so much we have volunteered as Camp Hosts for eleven years❤️

Water front camp group

This camp ground is right on the Bay ( Chesapeake) and has nice say dunes all around. You get to witness the Navy working near by as well, which is cool.

A hidden getaway

I stayed here in my hammock for a night while I was down in VA beach. Has some awesome trails of quite varying lengths (0.2-6.5 mi if I'm remembering properly) it will cost you to get on the property but the park pass for the day includes the beach across the highway as well. Both are dog friendly as long as your pup is on a leash


If you want to just lay back and fish this is the place for you

But, the BUGS!!!!!

We loved our campsite, and its proximity to the beach boardwalk, but were overrun with biting flies and mosquitoes. I have never had so many bites in my whole life. Seems to be a consistent issue with the summer months - great location, but too many bugs. We won't be back.

Great place

Always good, to camp first landing… long boardwalk, peaceful beach and calm water

Swampy site, pretty campground

We arrived here on a wim. We had heard great things about this campground. It's being kind of secluded but still on Virginia Beach. We heard this part of Virginia Beach was beautiful and not over crowded. So we gave it a shot.

It's a beautiful camp ground with tent and RV sites. Some of the sites sit perfectly nestled in trees protected by the elements while others are directly along swampy bug infested areas. We arrived later and our choice on sites just wasn't looking to good. We found what we thought would be a great site and all and all it was but when the sun went down the bugs came out. Excellent facilities here. Very very clean bathrooms and sites. There hiking, biking, swimming and fishing here. Long story short get here early and get yourself a good spot preferably not by the swamp.


Ground Zero

Hot. Came in mid August. But so many trees blocked all wind from ocean. If you do not book early could be stuck in one of the many sites sitting directly next to swampy waters. Or looking at fence for military base undergoing construction. Be prepared for bugels and national anthem every morning at 0 800 hours. The beating blades of helicopters at 11pm adds a nice ambiance with the million frogs as well when in deep slumber. I give it 2 stars as the nature center is very nice and has great shows for kiddos. Showers and bathrooms very clean and water is hot. Beach area very nice and peaceful but could be long hike if you get outer site. Have something to haul your gear and kids. Overall, if you are lucky to get one of the very few good sites available would look elsewhere. Maybe off season and when military base moves…..
