I have to say this one of the prettiest state parks that I have traveled. It ranks as one of my favorites from this point. We stayed in Campground A, site 6. We have a 28 foot travel trailer and a Dodge 3500 crew cab, 8ft bed. At first I was not crazy about the roadside pull-through sites, but it... More

I love this place. I come by as often as I can to visit their pool and do some grilling on the beach. This is definitely one of the nicest state parks that I personally know of. They have an Olympic swimming pool which is outdoors and right next to a beach. They also have small boat rentals like paddle... More

Loved the private, woodsy sites they offer. Very private and well kept. Everyone was pleasant from making my reservation to the helpful one at the gate that checked us in. We chose our site and actually rode around until we found one that we would enjoy.

Fantastic state park!! Very clean and a lot to do. Camping, cabins and sites all for rent. The pool is clean...the beach area was lovely. All in all, I think this is the most beautiful park I've seen in sometime!! Lot's of canoes to rent!

We're camping at this park again this weekend, we were lucky to find a cancellation! We used to be able to get into the campground at a moment's notice, but not anymore. Word is out, and the campgrounds are usually booked every weekend (unless you're staying in a tent, then you can still find sites). We wanted this weekend specifically... More

This was our first visit to the park and we were pleasantly surprised. We had a couple sites with large families and everything went great! Due to the heavy tree cover around the camp sites though, the sites did feel a little small. But this made it feel much more comfortable with adjacent sites since you seemed almost removed from...

We actually went the weekend after Memorial Day and the park is beautiful! The camp sites were clean and facilities were well maintained. By far Virginia has THE best parks I have ever seen or stayed at!!! This park is a shining example with it's sites and cabins. We went on a guided kayaking trip in the morning and had... More

I admit our family went for the fossils and crabs, but we definitely got much more than that. Yes, it took 4 of us longer to find shark teeth this time, 8 of them, during our 3 trips to the fossil beach, but we can't complain, it was beautiful. There were a lot of birds, and big and beautiful butterflies... More

This park, which is located on the Potomac River is beautiful! It has many hiking trails, a few beaches, an Olympic sized swimming pool and much more! Everyone should visit this park if they are in the area! I recommend camping in the A loop if you visit!
