Pohick Bay Regional Park, Lorton, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $7.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely suburban park about 5 miles from the Springfield, Virginia, metro station that takes you into Washington, DC. We tent camped with a group in an overflow camping area on a weekend in late October. The park was pretty full, but thinned out Sunday night. Very clean and modern restrooms and laundry facilities. Cabins available to rent. Playground for the kids. Also a water park that is open during the summer season. Well-stocked camp store on site. Easy hiking trails, including one that takes you about half a mile to Gunston Hall, home of George Mason, one of the Founding Fathers whose Virginia Declaration of Rights served as a basis for the Bill of Rights. RV spaces have full hook-ups or electricity only, are heavily shaded, have easy access even for big rigs, and provide enough room for privacy and quiet. Dump station on site. Picnic tables in overflow tent camping were pretty worn so a tablecloth is recommended. Beautiful area, but because of its proximity to the suburbs you won't see a lot of wildlife. Also, being only about 3 miles from a busy highway you could occasionally hear sirens at night. Still, a great option when visiting the Nation's Capital. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Tent.
