This is a great place to come as a beach goer, hiker, runner or biker. You have your choice! Miles of running trails, bike trails, beautiful bay beach across the street and even a little shop you can get snacks at. We come here throughout the year and it is wonderful and costs pennies to come into.

We used to live in VB and visit First Landing State Park frequently. We knew it when it used to be "Seashore State Park", which we still refer to it as! Whenever we return to VB, we always make it a point to stop in and get a good work out in on one of the trails.

I grew up loving what was then called Seashore State Park, with camping, cabins, swamp, and wilderness in the largest urban area in Virginia. What many don't know is that it is linked by bicycle trails with the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Museum, the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, and a bike path that goes along a creek in a residential...

We love going to First Landing State park. This park has 2 entrances one on Shore Dr. the second is at 64th St. We like to go to the 64th St part of the park. There are good trials to hike or bike. The beach is clean. It is one of the few places you can bring your dog(s) and... More

This state campground is less than an 1/2 hour from home in Portsmouth. The convenience is obvious. You'll find the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. There are a variety of sites to choose from primitive to water/electric. You can select wide open exposure or seclusion under canopies of weathered oaks. RV owners will find the roads maneuverable. There... More

Bring all my visitors here on their first trip to Virginia Beach. The little museum in the visitor centre is a great, easy to read, intro to the history of the area (and America). Pick up leaflets then go to the beach (as snack shop could be greatly improved!). Lots of great trails for biking/walking over the road and the... More

This is a wonderful park. It is an excellent place to go alone or with family and friends. There is a small, nicely done museum in the visitors center. Trails of various lengths, for walking, running, and biking, lead to a beautiful bay. A picnic area near the visitor center provides a convenient place to enjoy a meal. The park... More

We love First Landing State Park! It's beautiful, relaxing and very well kept. It's a great family place, but I also like going and sitting on the beach by myself to relax and 'regroup' now and then.
