We loved our stay at Westmoreland State Park and have already booked a cabin to go again! We went in the off season, so did not swim in the large pool or the beach along the Potomac, but we did have a blast on the trails, at fossil beach and birdwatching. The cabins are cinderblock design and not modern. They... More

We stayed in two different cabins in the past year and had a great time, hiking, looking for shark teeth, cooking out. But both times one bedroom of the cabin (two different cabins on two different months) smelled like someone had just pee'd onto the wall behind the dresser. It smelled so bad that the bedroom could not be used.... More

The guest admits they did not contact us about the smell problem in either cabin nor do they provide a time frame so it is difficult to respond. We can assure you that staff were not responsible for causing the problem and in a cabin that allows pets it is strange that would be their conclusion. Our staff have since... More

Westmoreland State Park is located in the Northern Neck of Virginia. During our visit, we walked the Fossil Beach trail (about .45 miles one way) to pan for fossils. We did not find any but the ice covered sticks in the Potomac River gave the illusion of water fowl. It was high tide so not much beach walking could be... More

Our official web page emphasizes that reservations are required for cabins. On extremely rare occasions someone may come to a park and we will have a cabin clean and ready to go but it is unusual and we would never encourage a customer to drive to the park and take that chance. In fact, prospective customers can call our Customer... More

It is a state park so I expected to find things dated and kind of run down. I was pleasantly surprised! I am not a camper so I didnt sleep in the cabins. But I browsed. They are better than summer camp in the Pocono Mountains. That is all I know about camping. But...the trails are wonderful. The riverfront is... More

Westmoreland State Park is Virginia's gem! It is the very best, and their staff are among the most attentive and helpful I have seen in the Commonwealth's state park system.

It had all the amenities to accommodate any group or family, was well kept and very clean. I cant wait to plan a weekend trip camping at ither one... More

My wife and I took the half mile hike to Fossil Beach. The trail is well maintained. The beach was not crowed for a Sunday. We spent about an hour and left with several good pictures of the Potomac River and three shark teeth. The park is clean and the staff was very helpful.
