Nice park with lots of tent camping and full hookups all mixed together. We camped over the Labor Day weekend and it was full. But no issues even though a lot of people. Wonderful grass areas - all mowed. Dirt roads in some areas though need attention. No trash bins anywhere near campsites for some reason. Never seen that before but trash is 1/2 mi from the campsite near the front gate. Very odd. Very nice place but $43 a night is way above our budget. We would have to think about it before we camped here again. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

Park is really one big field (except for the lane with the shaded sites) with an enormous width to the sites between the power poles. We could have parked our Itasca Navion three times over! Grass, so no tracking mud inside. All good, except for a lot of privacy. The beach is a comfortable walk away, and Wi-Fi is free at the camp store, about half way there. I really liked the park and will be back. One exception however; our neighbor gave us a bag of crabs (great, thanks neighbor!!) and we wanted to dispose of the shells etc. after dinner.... no trash receptacles.... anywhere! Finally asked the camp host and to my amazement they referred me to the camp entrance over a mile away! At one point they had recycling bins and trash bins, but they did away with them because "people made a mess". Sorry, but taking the trash bins away is not acceptable to me. We always dispose of our trash on the way out, but we were hooked up and didn't have a toad, and a 2 mile walk for crab shells was just too much to ask! We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here in July 2013 in a motorhome. It was my first experience camping in a state park and probably my last as the bathrooms were very dirty. Showers needed to be cleaned badly. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

The electic/water sites are all on one big area. Some places aren't very level but it should be possible to get leveled up. There is one restroom for all of the electric sites, but it's large with plenty of showers. There is also a laundry facility. There are plenty of trails, a nice swimming area, and lots of beach for fishing. It's a long ways down the Delmarva peninsula to the park and the toll to cross the CBBT with a trailer is prohibitive. We will find an alternate route next time. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a great place to stay. The sites are not all that level in some spots but we were able to get level pretty easily. They have some nice trails, beaches, and fishing. They also have my second favorite shower that I've come across in 2.5 yrs of travel. Pretty good pressure, great hot water, and a big shower enclosure. They even had cable TV. We had OK Verizon MiFi reception but it was slow. Roads were paved and sites were sand. We would have stayed longer than 1 day but Hurricane Sandy was head this way so we hit the road.

A nice state park with a great fishing pier, a nice swim beach, good trails and a competent, pleasant staff. The campground is one of very few and may be the only VA state park with sewer hookups and cable TV. Unlike many Virginia State Parks, the camp sites for RVs are close together and not very private and there is almost no shade. The tent area is much better shaded although the sites are still close together. There is a lot to do in the park but not much close by outside the park. Because it attracts a lot of boaters and fishermen make reservations particularly on the weekends. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here one night enroute to the Outer Banks. The office staff was courteous and helpful. We had an electric site which was available on a first come first served basis. The weather was horrible with heavy rain and storms throughout the night, so we did not do any exploring. The wife and kids advised the women's bathroom and shower facilities were dirty. Otherwise, our site was reasonably level and the park looked pretty nice. No issues maneuvering our rig, which is 53 feet long. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park. The site we had was level and large. The pier was very nice. The only complaint are the dryers in the laundry room. I dried one load for an hour and they still were not dry. Would have liked to stay here longer than 14 days. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Big rig friendly, open and very spacious grass sites. Our rate was $35 for FHU, plus $1.50 tax, and $5.00 reservation fee. We did not make a reservation and we only stayed one night so I don't know if that applies each night or just the first night. Once you pay they give you a map and you drive in and pick your site. Very convenient, just off state highway 13. Very nice staff. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

We've been camping at this park for years. Started off tent camping and now camping 2-3 times a year in a popup camper. Camp site was clean and level. The beach area was beautiful and the water was just perfect for our week long visit. The kids loved the daily activities scheduled by the park rangers and AmeriCorps volunteers. We did miss the Kayak tour to the cement ships. (Make your reservations early for that one). You can catch all the crabs you can eat right here next to, or on the pier. We got ourselves a nice bucket full in about 45 minutes. And steamed them back at the campsite. Total cost was $5 for bait. You can't beat that. My only suggestion for this park and for many other parks is to have a camping with pets section. Other than that this is absolutely our favorite park in VA.

The Kiptopeke State Park Campground is basically several large fields with Water, Electricity and Sewer hookups. Sites are poorly marked but it's not a major problem once you realize it relaxes the regimen found in most campgrounds. Swimming in Chesapeake Bay in the park is nice and is an easy walk from the sites. The park is clean and grassy areas are well maintained but the roads are narrow with many potholes. This was the highest cost I've ever paid for a state park and on top of the $41 for the site, there was another $5 for each dog. Although the location directly across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is ideal and the staff very friendly, I won't stay here again. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful Virginia State Park. Electric/water/sewer and cable TV channels 2 through 15. WiFi is available at the campstore. The sites are grassy and fairly large, some are shaded some are not. The sites without shade are grassier. Nice swimming beach on the Chesapeake bay with concrete ships to block a lot of the waves, this is in easy walking distance of campground on a couple of different trails. We will stay here again.

Many times we have passed by this park on our way to the Bay Bridge Tunnel. We always said that someday we would try it out. Well, we have to say, good job state of Virginia. Clean, quiet, well laid out. Good hiking trails. Lots of attention evident to keeping everything immaculate. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was very open camping: full circle of sites are open to every other RV camper. But was a nice place and the beach was nice even this late in the year. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.
