“Check Out the Shooting Range”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Bull Run offers a shotgun range that includes Wobble Trap, Trap, Skeet, 5-Stand, and 14 stations of sporting clays. Shotguns are available for rental and they sell ammo. The cost is very reasonable. Private or group shooting lessons are available on the weekends. The staff is knowlegible and very accommodating. This is a unique facility that offers unparalleled ways to have fun shooting clays!

“A walk in the Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

A large county park along Bull Run stream, and now offers lots of attractions, including large water park and used to have largest swimming pool on east coast.
Playground for kids, picnic tables along stream, and a great walk as main roads are level and easy to walk on.
Just about 30 miles to Washington, D. C. and you feel as if you are really in the woods and a real nice quiet place to relax and have a good time. Bring the hold family as everyone will have a good time.

“Bull Run Regional Campground”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Sites were very nice and big. Restrooms were very clean. We were there the 14th and 15th of Sept.2012. Enjoyed our stay. It was our 1st visit and I would recommend it highly. There are some full hookup sites where the water, electric and sewage are too far apart but if you have a long sewage hose you will be fine.

“Great regional park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Wonderful get-away with plenty of trails, fields, picnic areas, and out-in-the-country feeling. Maybe a bit hard to find for the out-of-towner but following the signs should get you there fine.

“A great park with many activities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We had been to the Bull Run regional park - a Fairfax County operation that is free for residents of the county but has a ten dollar charge for outsiders. We walked along the Bull Run - Ocoquan trail that goes along the Bull Run Creek. Forested thickly with trees and the sound of wildlife everywhere - with all sorts of plants, insects and animals - all within 25 miles of the nation's capital! The trees form a natural canopy that keeps the summer sun out and the sound of running water creates a sense of peace and tranquillity. The trail was thinly peopled when we went on a Sunday morning at 9:00 am.

There is a water park and plenty of campsites and picnic grounds. We were interested in a long interesting nature walk and did not sample these. The park itself is huge and the only thing (for us) that detracted from the piece and quiet was a shooting range which also was open at the same time and the sounds of wildlife were punctuated with the sound of the occasional gunshot - reminders of Virginia's love affair with the firearm.

Bull Run park is easily approached from US Highway 29/Lee highway in Centerville. The admission was free and there was plenty of parking. The roads inside the park form a extensive network that is great for biking. In winter we have seen Bull Run park turn into a wonderland of lights with snow on the ground and pitch darkeness everywhere else.
