1 Park near Centreville, Virginia
Dec 2014 - $46.00
Level, narrow, winding roads to get to the park. Nice level, narrow interior roads. Trees were trimmed so we didn't hit any limbs. Many full-hookup sites are gravel pull-thrus and parallel to the road (like you're pulling off to the side of the road). Your front door will face the woods. We had a spacious shady site. Hookups were in the middle. No wifi or cable. No off leash dog park but plenty of space to walk dogs. There's a pool, waterpark, playground, trails, all great for the warmer months. Office staff were nice, helpful with directions and available during regular hours including weekends. We were there over the Christmas season during the Festival of Lights so all campers had to take a different route to the campsite after 5pm every single day. Otherwise, you'll get stuck in horrendous Festival traffic. The park's Christmas decorations are nice, though. We plan to come back next month and again next fall and winter to visit family. They gave me a Good Sam discount but I had to ask for it. This park also has a shooting range nearby and on weekends, the shooting starts at 7am. It's loud and constant all day long until sunset. If this bothers you, this isn't the park for you. There's a 14 day limit, then you have to be out for 4 days before you can stay another 14 days. During the holidays, this policy didn't seem to be followed. - Flippitti

Bare bones minimum state park, but it did have sewer hookups, which made it better than average for a state park. The staff in the office were typical government workers. They did their job but were not especially friendly or helpful. But for the Washington DC area, the price was very reasonable. This was our second time at this park. The last time we were chased out by the possibility of Hurricane Sandy hitting the DC area. Closest rail station is the end of the line at Vienna Station, about 17 miles away. Parking there is $5/day and if over 65, be sure to get a senior pass to get 1/2 price transit fares. - travelinggramma63

All the trees had me worried about getting into and out of this park in our 42' motorhome, but it was no problem because the trees were all trimmed up high enough not to bother our rig. Our site was roomy, shaded, and had woods nearly all around so more privacy than most campgrounds. The Shooting Center has been mentioned before, but bears repeating. We were away visiting relatives most of the time, but if we had been sitting outside we would've felt like we were in a war zone. Planes from Dulles flew overhead intermittently during the times we were actually in the campground. Every campground has its pluses and minuses--noise is the minus here but the up side is so good we'll stay here again for sure! - Pamela R.
