The large Westmoreland State Park offers numerous trails, campgrounds and cabins, as well as a camp store, visitor center and event center. Plus, spectacular views of and across the Potomac River are thrown in. The facilities are attractive and well maintained. A $5 "parking" fee is charged for entry by automobile.

After Labor Day, not crowded. Site are very nice and clean. Bath house is not clean and very small for the camp ground size.

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.

My family and I visited Westmoreland State Park where we camped for a week. The experience was wonderful for all of us: mom, dad, our 10 year old son and 6 year old daughter. Located on the Potomac River and surrounded by lush green trees we set up our tent on a site we choose upon arrival. The sites were... More

This very affordable campground has a lot to offer...hiking, birding, swimming, but best of all is the fossil hunting on Fossil Beach. Other reviewers found this park 'old' and complained about the lack of wi-fi. I don't know about you, but getting my kids off the grid for a few days is a positive experience, not one I'd complain about.... More

We loved our week here. The cabin was rustic, but very clean, no bugs inside, and had everything we needed, AC, bathroom and kitchen. There was a grill and a fire pit for cooking that we used every night. And an indoor fireplace that would be lovely in the winter months! We stayed in cabin 12, which I highly recommend.... More

After reading the positive reviews, I added this to our family vacation itinerary and am so glad I did! We wanted to include some beach access into our Virginia vacation, but being that we were staying centered in Fredericksburg and Luray, we didn't want to add the additional driving required to oceanside, so we elected for a Potomac-river-side daytrip that...

When experiencing your life-long desire to go camping, you not only hope you don't experience equipment failure, that you have the right stuff to take out into the forrest, take enough supplies and eats, not to mention somewhat know what you're doing - but also choosing the right location. You hope to have beautiful landscape, incredible geography, great fauna and... More

My family with 4 younger kids really enjoyed the view from the visitor's center, the short hike to the beach and exploring the beach for shells & fossils. The views were outstanding, the beaches clean & soft and the water warm.
