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. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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! We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park close to Shenandoah Valley and Washington, DC. Accessible via I66. Directions from Interstate are not particularly clear however a quick call to the park got us turned in the right direction. The Atlantis Waterpark is inside the park but separate from the campground. Sites are ample for large rigs. Most sites are parallel to the roadway. Sewer hook-ups are elevated higher than most dump valves. All sites are shaded, satellite is sketchy at best. Staff helpful & friendly. Call ahead for reservations as this is a popular park. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Large open areas for day use, and campsites are good. Some campsites are a bit odd with placement of utilities, but can be reached. We had an issue with the electric on our site as our power cord got a little singed at the female end of the cord. There is a shooting range very near the camping area that is open every day except Mondays and Tuesdays. It stays very busy and the gunfire continues until closing at 8 PM, but don't let this stop you from visiting this well maintained park. It is also very convenient to either the park and ride bus or the Metro Train. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Crowded when we got there. Managed to get a pull-thru, 50 amp electric, but no water and no sewer. It had rained a lot before we got there. There were puddles all over the place, but the sites had very good drainage and we had no problem. I really like this campground. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty spot in the woods but close by to everything. Fairly large level sites, some with hookups on the wrong side. Rate was for FHU. No WIFI but good Verizon and AT&T signals. Noise from gun range ends at dusk. Lots of places to walk the dog. Very convenient to visit the battlefield or Air and Space Museum at Dulles. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice big sites with rustic feel, underneath Dulles Airport so the planes can be noisy. We had full hook-ups and they worked well. It is a long way off the major road, but the roads are good. Check is was easy, it is a nice State Park. Close to DC and would stay again. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is a huge park well off the highway with areas for groups to enjoy day outings, a water park and a large RV Park. The road throughout the park is paved with the RV sites gravel. The pull-thru sites are like parallel parking on the side of the road so you want to park so that your patio side is away from the road. The sites have electric only, with a picnic table and a fire pit. They have a dump station with potable water at the entrance to the RV park. There is a Jungle Jim in the park for the kids. It is heavily wooded and there is a walking path so it is quite pleasant. The park is in the center of the famous Bull Run Battle Field of the Civil War and about 35 miles from DC. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Clean, well maintained. Roughly 1 hr drive into DC or 10 minutes to nearest Metro Station. Well controlled with visible ranger presence. Large sites, level, shaded. Would camp here again. Highly recommended. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a convenient location for visiting Manassas Battlefield. It works for getting into DC as well (about 1 to 1.5 hours). We didn't use the restrooms. The sewer connection at our site was too high, but they are not all that way. Our site also wasn't level and pooled water with heavy rain. There are great fields around for soccer, frisbee, or similar activities. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bull Run Regional Park is an excellent campground. All sites appear to be fairly easy to level. Very wooded locations. Lots of pull thru's for big MH. Great kids playground. Bathrooms are outstanding. Clean and in excellent repair. Within the park is a waterpark, putt putt and disc golf. We have a travel trailer and it was easy to back into our spot. We really liked that you often saw someone driving through to check the campground. Our kids are looking forward to staying here again. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is beautiful, well maintained, clean, and quiet, with plenty of green space for our two dogs and biking/hiking. The utilities are not always located in the same area; water and sewage may be on the opposite side of the motorhome from electric hookup. This was not problematic for us, we just used longer/shorter hookups as necessary. We will not hesitate to stay at this park in the future. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed a week here. Nice area for a campground (CG): beautiful open spaces, lots of trees and shade, lots of wildlife, plus a waterpark to boot. BUT we noticed several problems in this park: Hookups for water, sewer, and electric are at times not only far apart, at many spots they are on opposite sides of the site. DO NOT come here {for full hookups} without extension cords suitable for RV electric, plus extra water and sewer hoses. We had a site with electric only, no problems. A very few sites are nearly impossible to level, others 'just' require wood blocks and leveling jacks. Kind of strange because the open areas around the CG are very flat. Saw several MH's with front wheels completely off the ground. Satellite dish very, very questionable, at least 90% of the sites will get zero signal, and no cable TV here, if that's important to you. Over the air TV gets a few channels, but a lot of those are full of static and prone to whiteouts. Spotty cell signal and bring your own Wi-Fi! Our Verizon phone pretty good, Verizon MiFi wireless setup was very marginal (even with outside antenna) which is unusual. AT&T phone was mostly zero signal here. Bathhouses while clean, have nearly zero water pressure. That's not an exaggeration. Low and slow, frustrating. Don't mind showers at a CG if the water pressure is up. Here it is as low as I've ever seen anytime, anywhere, in any CG. Now, to address some good things! Super nice staff, they really know the campground layout and their business. Listen to them, they know what they're talking about. Gov't type park so the sites ARE HUGE, at least 30' wide! The wildlife were many and wonderful. Waterpark very popular with busloads of kids so it must be great. Bull Run is only a little more than 20 miles from DC. And even with no discounts, it is less than half the price of the $60 a night "cherry cg." You can easily drive to catch a metro train if you wish, or go directly to DC via I-66 to the I-495 beltway. Freeways all the way in to the National Mall. That's why, even with all the problems, WE WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Campground is in beautiful wooded area but has lots of problems. Utilities are very poorly laid out and are unusable at many sites (water and sewer at one end, electric at the other, or all three together at the far end of a long pull through). Sewer hookups are so high we couldn't empty our tanks and had to go to the main dump station. Many sites are very hard to get into or get level. If possible it's best to tour the campground to see what sites you might be able to use before reserving one. Noise from I-66 and the nearby shooting range is bad. Shooting goes on all day every day. Be forewarned that park policy now bans having your mail or packages sent to the park so make other arrangements if you need to get your mail. Campgrounds that accommodate big rigs are hard to find around DC so we will stay here again only if we need to work in the area. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.
