Grew Up Going Here

Beautiful Park. Not much to do. Close to DC, but still far away. In suburbia

Take me home

I love the Shenandoah. Nice escape from city life. Tent sites vary. A couple trails near campsite but you must drive to good ones

Great for families

This isn’t my idea of camping, but I brought my 11 year old nephew. He was able to run around and make friends with his aunt always looking over his shoulder. He had lots of fun at pool, movie night, making s’mores, and jumping on bouncy mound

NIce Place, Nice Price

Picked for price


Enjoyed Blueridge parkway

NIce retreat in SW Virginia

Go Jump In Lake

It was nice to jump in lake on hot July day.  

Cell phone service is nonexistent

People were nice


Lots of trees to protect from hot Virginia sun

Woke up to sounds from gun range.

Favorite of Shenandoah Campgrounds

It is in middle of everything

Great hikes nearby including waterfalls and rock scrambles

Beachfront Living

Can't beat a campsite on the beach surrounded by history.  This is my favorite local campsite.  

Tip:  this is the most northern place to see Spanish Moss

Beautiful in Fall

This is definitely a family campground.  So my activities for kids and places to run around. Pirate's Cove waterpark is definitely a highlight in summer

Boating in summer from kayaks to motorboats

So close to DC but so far away

This campground was so pretty. It is small, but the price and location near DC cannot be beat. It is directly on Potomac River.

Tip: if you want a day pass, just show your REI receipt and you can get in for free

Redwoods and California Coast

You are deep within the magic of Big Sur. Come here to relax and recharge.  This camp is close to nothing - in a good way! Escape your phone.

We enjoyed short hikes to see waterfall and like kilns with no one else on the trail.

The camp sites near the ocean seemed a bit windy in November, but we were cozy in the trees.
