We had fun . Wish we could have stayed a week instead of a weekend . Our family had just bought a camper trailer. Got a good sunburn. The beach so quiet and friendly. Stayed out there all day. Our camping neighbors came to our site and invited us to eat dinner. Then at 10 o'clock some gruff rangers came... More

We love to go hiking here. There are animal friendly tails and trails for biking. Very clean and well taken care of. Great place for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to do some easy hikes.

Surprised to see this vegetation in Virginia. It looks like South Carolina. This is a great park to walk or mountain bike through. Visitors center, information available, plenty of parking. Relatively flat area. Looks like a nice place for kids.

My boyfriend and I spent the good part of our afternoon exploring trails and getting a little lost. Such a beautiful and well kept area! Great trails that could occupy you for the whole day and more!

The VIsitor's Center on Shore Drive has free history exhibits and beautiful coastline to explore at no cost. Drive up the 64th Street entrance and enjoy the closeness of nature and walk/cycle the easy accessibility trails or simply enjoy nature from your car. This is one of the best kept secrets of Virginia Beach. You can be in the wilds,... More

Clean, affordable way to stay at the beach for a few days. Some camping spots are definitely better than others so be sure to take a look at their map. The closer to the beach, the better.

We had a good walk in the woods and went geocaching with my 7 year old son. Fun family activity. The park rangers there were very helpful and informative.

We went here for a bit of exercise and came back with an education on the flora and fauna of the area. We never expected that this was a pirate area nor that it is the most northern area where there is Spanish moss hanging fro the trees. Lots to see and learn and great for the kids.
