Breath Taking!

We did a very primitive trip here; riding motorbikes from LA up to Yosemite.

Toured with Wilderness Collective. AMAZING people based out of LA.

The trails are honestly some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen.

There were some bears nearby - prepare for that! Oh & it was pretty chilly in the fall.

Bring what you need. And ready yourself to be humbled by the majesty of your surroundings

So many memories

My wife has camped here for the last 26 years. It is a yearly tradition. The lake is beautiful, bathrooms are always clean, the campsites are so beautifully wooded. She says loop B is her favorite, but loop A is very convenient if you have little ones. The path to the lake is a great adventure. You can jump on the Appalachian Trail for a hike. Some of the family is still going every year. They also have fishing, paddle boats, and a snack bar at the lake.

Lakeside Fun!

Great spot right on Lake Gaston. The little marina is awesome. Everyone is super helpful. There is a great snack bar & store.

We rented a cabin & although it was small, the kids had a blast.

I highly recommend this spot.

Look at that view!

Such a lovely spot! You can just roll in, set up & hit the most amazing trails!! Wonderful view of Seneca Rocks.

We did a little climbing & bouldering over the weekend.

Definitely want to go back!

Super clean facilities


Great place to get away!! No Cell Signal… Lots of trails around. Wonderful views all around! I love to go early spring & fall.

Look at all those stars!

The beat place for star gazing! Just ask for a telescope (free at the store) and stare up at the sky for hours!

We loved this spot!

The store was awesome.

The gift shop was amazing & the park rangers were very helpful.

My 4 yr old spent hours playing with all the little animals the ranger station had.

The pool was PACKED in July and it got SUPER HOT!

Would have been better to bring a trailer or RV at that time of year.

The sites were awesome & the bath house was very clean


It is a great location with tons of amenities!

Best for RV camping but I have also tent camped here many times

A little slice of paradise!

Such a gorgeous place (if you go at the right time of year).

It can get super hot in July/Aug.

The beach is wonderful, the store has all you will need & the ”snack bar” is so much more than that!!!

I love this place for Tent/RV/Cabin trips.

The sites are legit! Lots of privacy.

Bring bikes because there is so much to explore

My Kids Want To Go Back ASAP

My family had a blast! There is a TON of stuff for the kids. The game room, snack bar, store made life easy. The pool and water activities were PERFECT!

This is a good spot of you are looking to get away for a week or two & just not have to worry about the kids.

We brought bikes & they just took off had a blast!!!

Nice local spot to get away to

Nice spot to get away for a few nights. Everyone was super chill & helpful.

If you dont have tons of gear & are just looking to get away, this is a solid choice.

Sometimes you just meed to get under the open sky for a bit. This location is great for that.

Great Spot For Large Groups

This is a great choice for large groups. The store has everything you need & the kids love the snack bar.

We enjoyed the pool, kayaking & the activities.

If you have a small boat or jet skiis, you are guaranteed to have a blast!

Simply Wonderful

This is one of Virginia’s best kept secrets for Cabins, RV or Tent camping.

The location is awesome; close to some great hiking spots, very accessible & well laid out.

The kids are guaranteed to catch something in the fishing hole & the camp store has EVERYTHING!!

Love this place! It is a great spot to go tent camping.

Call and speak with the staff about the best dates to go. They helped is pick a day when there were NO other people there.

Such a great spot.

So Many Options!

There are so many options available here. Shuttle run to assist with transportation (great if you are in a motorhome) and there are lots of activities.

Its super clean & the staff is amazing!

Rent bikes, go to the beach, ride the zip line… There is always something to do.


Close to the oceanfront, nice pool, snack bar & activities for the kiddos. Ocean Breeze Fun Park, Motor World & The VA Aquarium are all super close. Pretty solid choice for a family looking to entertain a bunch of kids

Simple and Sweet

It is super accessible, has a great beach, snack shop/store and facilities. We live IN Virginia Beach but still crash here every so often just to get outside for the night. Its a great spot for a family w/ kids. They can ride their bikes around safely.

GREAT spot to bring a boat/kayaks etc…
