50 amp FHU which is nice for a state park. It's in a quiet and peaceful area with not much around. To get to shopping you have to cross a toll bridge/tunnel that will cost you $18/trip. The sites are pretty close together. The ones that back along the road (like we had) were a little more private and had some shade. The ones in the middle were in full sun and you had people in front of you or behind you as well as to your sides. The hiking/biking trails were a nice perk and the swimming beach was nice. The non swimming beach (where dogs are allowed) had multiple dead fishes, birds etc which made it not really a good place to walk. I know this is nature and dead animals will happen but this was excessive and I've never seen anything like it before. Sites are pretty unlevel so choose wisely. Ours was impossible to level w/out blocks but not as bad as other sites we saw. The sites are also grass so it's going to get muddy during rain. The only trash dumpsters were by check in which was a good .25 mile walk from the campground and not convenient at all. The bathrooms were nice and very clean. I didn't check out the showers. OTA channels were plentiful and Verizon was 22 d/l and ATT was 31 d/l unboosted. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park located near the Bay Bridge Tunnel so can access Virginia Beach and Norfolk easily. Huge sites- not all level but can choose your own out of available sites. Fairly busy but quiet and very clean. Rangers are extremely nice. Would absolutely return. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

Not much in immediate area. Bridge Tunnel is pricey. Use EZ pass for discount.

A very nice, large park. We were able to pick out our own site out of 3 loops that are mostly full service. A few are just electric and water. The sites appear not to be very level but if you pull up far enough, they level off. That is - the land rises up away from the road, so you have to pull back far enough to get to the level spots. This is a beautiful location with lots of trails and water access. It is right over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel heading north. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Bathrooms were very clean and there is a laundry facility provided as well. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

We were fortunate to camp here during off season. We had a reservation but were able to pick any site we wanted. All sites are back in and I can imagine during the high season it can be very crowded but for us, during the third week of November, it was perfect. The hiking trails and the beaches in the area were nice with our dogs. We had a water heating issue so we used the showers on site. They were dated but served the purpose with warm to hot water. The Camp Host came to visit and was incredibly nice chatting with my husband. The park itself is just tremendous and we will most certainly come back again during the off season. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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 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.

This was a nice campground, sites were large and level all grass. We were at site 76, had good satellite reception. There is a pet charge of $5 per night. There was NO trash bins close by, had to take it to park entrance, a long walk. There was a fishing pier and swimming and a small camp store with limited items. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

Just returned from another wonderful weekend at Kiptopeke State Park! Great place to get away, but there are a few things to know before you go. First, you cannot reserve a specific site. This may not be of a huge concern unless, like us you have a large (>35') unit. I recommend getting there on Thursday, if you are a weekender. Some of the sites (esp even numbered sites 2 thru about 30) are quite short and not level. These are great for truck campers, pop-ups or tent camping. Most sites are level and out in the open, typically with a good breeze. About 1/3 are shaded, nice too. The beach is a GOOD 5-8 minute walk down hill, but is a fairly short bike ride or even shorter drive (with close parking). The playground is across the access road from the campground itself and we found that adult supervision or an older kid was necessary for our comfort. Bathrooms are generally clean - depending on the clientele. The campers are typically extremely friendly and respectful, the opposite is definitely the exception. We will of course return given the proximity. New for this year is free Wi-Fi - only available on the camp store deck. The store is small and has the basics - bait, tackle, ice-cream, snacks, and very basic camping supplies (fyi - no milk or bread, or other groceries). Overall, another great weekend at this wonderful park! We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is a solid 8. $35 plus tax and a $5 reservation fee for a nice big 50 amp, water, sewer and limited cable TV site is a good rate when compared to the commercial parks along the Delmarva coast. We do not boat or fish, but there are some excellent walking trails here, a butterfly garden and lots of bird watching opportunities here. Also, there's about a mile of coast just inside the mouth of the bay. The bay bridge can be seen from the coast. We would come back. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.
