This is one of those CGs that has so much to do, you could stay for a week and not leave the CG. Kids have loads to do. Nice, level (but narrow sites unless you are in the deluxe sites). Proof of the freedom of our nation jet noise can be bothersome to some but I LOVED it!! Free parking near the beach for guests. Overall I rated it a 10 because it deserved it. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice CG stretched along mouth of Chesapeake Bay. Variety of sites: on the dunes or in the woods. Campground roads are narrow and not well pruned back in places. Has multiple boardwalks over the dunes to the huge beach. Bathhouses are not fancy but quite functional. Has a good camp store. Free WiFi (at camp store). Has a good laundry. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location right on the dunes. Some spots have tree cover but we chose beachfront. There is road noise but otherwise this is an ideal park. Great running/biking trails. Showers, which are free, include steaming hot water and there are sinks for cleaning dishes and such. Currently the eastern half of the park is flooded so only the H campsites, located to the west of the park office on the map, are open. We stayed three nights in site 15H and found it private and lovely. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We are locals to Virginia Beach, so this weekend visit was two-fold: (1) I wouldn't be caught dead here during high tourist season and (2) we just got our new Bullet, so this was our "shakedown" cruise. Stayed in "H", like the previous campers and with good reason...Nor'easter are nothing more than winter hurricanes. The one we had here in Nov. '09 has effectively shut off 80% of the available sites (A,B,C,D,E &G). If you have camped here in years past, please keep this in mind. There are only a few sites that will accommodate large rigs and its first come, first serve. We sneaked a peek at "F", hoping that maybe it would be ready soon. Those sites will be on the Bay side as well. And while things were still closed up at the gatehouse, the camp store is now open, still run by the same wonderful people. If you do camp here, please do one cool thing: take two bags to the beach. One to fill with shells and one to fill with trash. The storms have hit us pretty hard, but if we can all fill just one bag, First Landing will continue to be the natural beauty it has always been. Have a great summer! We camped at First Landing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a treasure. We got a spot in the open (hot), but with an outstanding view of the dunes and the bay. It was a short walk to a beautiful stretch of beach that was always empty and clean. We would do this one again, even though it was more primitive than we normally like. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was a surprise, not at all what I had expected. The sites are large and remote. The sites for larger RV's are isolated so you feel that you are alone in the park. Our site was were along the edge of the ocean but not on the ocean. You have to take a walkway to get over the dunes to get to the beach. This is a very different kind of park, one that is worth seeing at least once. Very nice. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fun campground in that is is directly connected to the beach. Some sites were pretty small, and not many with electric. Well maintained however. More shower/restroom facilities are need as they are few and far between. Some upgrades are needed to the some of the older shower houses as well as sewer gas smell is strong. Additional beach access would also be beneficial. You don't get to choose your site ahead of time here, but you do so when you check in. We ended up with a great site, but there were plenty of sites I would not have been happy with. Is a great campground overall! We camped at First Landing State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Nice shady site, has great large sites, spacious, and away from other neighbors. Some sites are close and within walking distance to beach. Ours was near a bathhouse. Has a nice nature center. Has a very nice, private beach. Like the fact that this campground is gated. Has a nice, shady playground, and nice campstore. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Tent.

We could not get reservations on-line for Friday or Saturday so we made plans for arrival on Monday and departing on Friday morning. Upon arrival at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, there was no one staffing the front gate. We noted that 1/2 of the park was closed as we drove through the open sections looking for a sight. We have a 32 foot trailer and only found 2 sights available. We stopped by the front gate house on Tuesday and again on Wednesday and never found it open. It must be to early in the season. The rate of $30 plus tax was about $10 too high for the off season. We still love to see the bay and spend time in the area. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

After having a difficult time with the on-line reservation system, we managed to get one. Full prepayment was required, two months before arrival. When we arrived at the campground, we found out what the problem was: over half the campground was closed off (early season? budget issues?). There were only 4 or 5 sites open for 35-50 foot RVs, and you have to drive around and pick one after arriving. The park is divided up by length of sites, and a reservation for one size does not translate to a different size site. We were lucky to get site G6, the best in the park with a view of Chesapeake Bay and the bridge-tunnel. Most sites were not level. This park is much better suited to tent and pop-up campers and there were plenty of them over a hot weekend. Note that each pet (dog, cat, whatever) is $5 more per night. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, so no report on them. You can't beat the location for visiting in Virginia Beach, so we would stay again if the need arose. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a tough park to come up with a rating for. It is an older park and was designed for small trailers and tents. There are limited sites for larger units, and the access to some of those sites is difficult due to road design, trees and limbs. I also would not want to try and get into the park after dark for a first time stay: very tight roads. Registration does not allow you to pre-select your site. So there is no telling what you will get when you arrive. And you have to take the tour through the narrow roads to find an open site. We stayed off season, arriving on a weekend, and there were no registration people on duty all weekend. A real mess when, after we got setup on our site, we were eventually told that we would have to move at the end of the week as they were closing that loop. Not real people friendly, although they did right by us after some discussion. Having said all that, we were on site G-6. Had to work to get a 32' fifth wheel into it, but once into it, it was a great site: very large, very private and a view of the Chesapeake out the back window. Good water and 50 amp service. Bath houses are newer and nice. We wouldn't go back, but if you were tenting or in a smaller rig, this might be a good spot for you. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an old campground carved out of the dunes many years ago. The buildings and hookups however are modern and worked great. There are so many sites you can surely find what you're looking for. We made a reservation online so our check in was less than 5 minutes. It's very close to the Edgar Cayce center and about 10 minutes from the Boardwalk. We'd certainly stay here again.

Back camping at our favorite local campground. Nice big site at B28 - the bath house was new and very nice. As always the beach was great with our site being near the dune crossover. The checkin process was VERY LONG this time, the staff did not seem very together or organized. It was an annoying way to start, but once we got through that, everything was great. We'll be back. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Tent.

Sites were good size, easy to setup, and divided by trees/shrubbery for privacy. Easy access to the Chesapeake Bay beach area - just over the dunes. We were here in mid-April and the water was actually warm enough to go in! The bathrooms were clean - though we didn't use them much so can't speak for the showers, etc. Reserved online so quick check-in, easy access dump station, nice camp host. Nice, quiet, family park. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the best camping deal in Virginia Beach. If you are beach lovers this is the perfect spot for you. Many sites within short walk over the dunes to the beach. Some with Bay/Ocean views. Clear view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Next to the military base. There is always something to keep your attention there. Be sure to bring binoculars to watch the military maneuvers as well as the many different boats in and out of the bay. This beach is clean and pet friendly. Lots of shade for tenters. Access is tight for RVs. Some of the restrooms are updated, However, even the older restrooms are cleaned multiple times a day. Park rangers patrol often. Making for a safe, fun destination. I would highly recommend this campground. Best deal on the beach! We camped at First Landing State Park in a Motorhome.
