Have biked here before where traffic was blocked off part of the circular roadway, but our favorite thing to do is hike on one of the diverse trails - flat or hilly, meadow or creekside, spring through autumn. Nice ranger station/nature center near entrance. This is a National Park, so free to any senior citizen who has purchased a lifetime... More

Did about 5 hours of hiking and exploring on a few of the many trails in the park. It if a fantastic place to hike or run or bike trails. Clean. Well maintained and quite. Camp sites are very good and there are several individual, family, and large group cabins.

We went here on labor day for an 8 mile trek as a group of friends- we arrived at 10 and managed to do the complete loop passing only a couple of people! It was fantastic. The bathrooms were also better than most DC restaurant toilets. Great place to escape to as so close to DC. Definitely heading back in... More

A group of 4 of us booked two weekend nights here the last weekend in August. We were looking for a) something close to DC b) camp sites that have a bit of privacy and c) a good rate. We got all three! It was super easy to get here from DC, even in rush hour on a Friday. The... More

I give this 3 stars since it does not have the scenery of some parks or the attractions. It is a nice, quiet park with trails and an excellent seven mile or so loop for cycling. But be warned it is very hilly. Flatlanders will get a workout.

Went on a 8-mile hike and hardly saw a soul, even though the park is in between two well populated counties. The woods and trails are well maintained, and the scenery is beautiful. The park fee of $7 is well worth the price, and good for 7 days, We walked by streams, a small lake, many wooded meadows and had... More

Prince William Park is a National Park Service Unit comprising 19,000 acres of forest adjacent to Quantico Marine Corps Base and just outside Washington DC. It's right off I-95 at exit 150 and a great place to stop and stretch your legs if traveling the 95 corridor. I was heading home from Baltimore to Raleigh and stopped here to break... More

We stayed at the KOA Prince William Campground on Rt. 234 off of Exit 152B on Interstate 95 in Virginia. The staff member, Joan, was very congenial and helpful during our stay. The showers were equipped with a small area for changing; and there was a separate restroom and sink area. These facilities were always very clean and fully stocked.... More

I go biking here all the time - they paved the roads a few years ago and the pavement is still super smooth. They have a dedicated bike lane for a large portion of the park. The best part of this park is that its rarely full (except on major holidays) and I would say the second best part if... More
