This park is a hidden gem. We would never have expected to find a place like this in the DC metro area. It is a public/regional park that includes a huge day-use area, a water park, a shooting range, an events center, and a campground. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. A mix of back in and pull-through sites. The pull-throughs are loop sites. Sites have picnic tables, fire ring (wood available at campground store) and all utilities except cable. Utilities were modern and worked well. Some are in funny places related to the rest of the site. All sites back into or face into wooded area with squirrels, foxes, and deer. The shooting range is nearby and active during the day, but is done by nightfall. You are under the approaches for Dulles Airport, but airplane noise was minimal. No cable, satellite is unlikely due to trees, but there are a ton of over the air channels available in the DC area. Staff were friendly. Park was quiet and clean. We will definitely return here on our next visit to the DC area. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great Park as a homebase to view the battlefield and the DC area. Beware, traffic into DC is CrAzY. Each spot has shade or partial shade AND there is ample pull through parking. I liked everything about this park EXCEPT there is a public gun range a few miles away so you will get the occasional bang, bang, bang. You will be satisfied with your experience at this park. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a State Park which is indifferent to service, and overcharges at $43 with no cable, and no WiFi.

Rang four times to ensure we were good for a booking for a 53' rig and spoke with two people. Arrived, and was told that max length was 38' and all the larger sites are closed for holiday season light show.

Staff were completely indifferent to any form of service and did not care. Could not use dump site either.

Any commercial facility would not tolerate such poor staffing or indifference to service.

Won't bother visiting next time even when it's open.

Booked a nearby park with Cable, WiFi, full hookup long pull through which cost less. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We love staying in national, state, and regional parks. We always look for them first because we love the outdoors. We were not disappointed with Bull Run. The sites were very wooded and huge. Even though we had neighbors we didn't feel like we had to be quiet in every moment so as not to disturb anyone. My boys loved running through the woods and acting out battles. My wife and I loved being able to take our dogs on long walks on the roads and enjoy the beauty around us.

Our site was not level and required a few blocks to get us leveled up but, in my opinion, that is to be expected at a park. We did think that the price was a little high but we would definitely stay here again simply for the beauty factor. The gun range did get a little annoying at times but we got used to it. The wireless signal was strong so we had no issues with our cellular wifi hotspot.

We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the tips that they gave us for traveling into DC. We found it close enough that we drove in on weekends but because of parking we took the metro system on weekdays.

We stayed here for the maximum of 14 days and still didn't get to do everything that we wanted too do. We will definitely be back to finish up our site seeing. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We went to the Pentagon 9-11 memorial one night after a long day in DC. The memorial is heart wrenching and beautiful at night. We got to talk with a security officer that was there during the attack and loved learning from him what really went on that day. Definitely do not miss this memorial!

This is a beautiful, large campground with large sites and lots of privacy. It's unusual to have full hookups at a county park, so that was a big plus. The RV pull-through sites in the full hookup area are along the side of the roads (I refer to them as "C-shaped" pull-throughs). This provides a lot of privacy and a large camping area which we love, but ours (#127) was very unlevel (sloped away from the road), and even though it's a pull-through we had to back out due to low branches in the front of the site. While the roads inside the campground are wide and paved, the very long residential roads (e.g. Bull Run Post Office Rd) you have to take to get there are narrow, winding, and uneven. Even though the campground is physically very close to I-66 and stores/restaurants, it takes a good 10+ minutes just to wind your way out of the campground and back to a main roads to get anywhere. The other big drawback for us was the park's outdoor shooting range, which was active every day (9am-8pm), especially on weekends (9am-5pm). Personally, we don't find the sound of nearby gunfire all day long to be a relaxing camping experience. Being a county park there were plenty of places to walk our dog, though we did find a couple of deer ticks after our walks (very common in Virginia). The campground and sites are heavily wooded, so in the summer you should have plenty of shade. In October it was a bit dark for our tastes. There aren't a lot of campground options in the DC suburbs, especially with full hookups, so while Bull Run is not our favorite in the area, we may return if needed (e.g. if we hit the 14 day limit at the other nearby county park). We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here because it's close to family. Both times we've said we will not return but next time we will definitely stay in a different park even though we'll have to drive longer so see family. The pull through sites are sideways, but the hookups are poorly lined up and not even, which makes pulling in difficult. Our site was not level. We had to use 2 pieces of wood to level and not have our tires off the ground. Sites are a little bit of gravel but mostly dirt. Water pressure was terrible. We couldn't pull through to leave because of the trees and side drop offs. We arrived just after noon and were charged a $5 early registration fee - registration starts at 1:00. Never had this happen before! No cable, no WiFi, no satellite, just noise from the gun range and airport. This was not a pleasant experience. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Be careful of GPS directions in this location. Thankful I called the office and asked about directions. She told us not to take Compton Rd. We rode it in the car later and it is horrible. We turned on Bull Run Post Office Rd off of Hwy 29 and it isn't any fun in a large RV but doable. Main problem is it's very narrow. Once you get into the park, the roads are fine. We loved the campground. Sites are private and shaded. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This park is well maintained. Beautiful in spring. Our site had no water or sewer hook ups, which we were a little apprehensive about upon booking. They have a potable water and dump station at the entrance of the campground, so it worked out perfectly for our 2 night stay. Sites are pull off, meaning that your door will face the woods. We really enjoyed this set up. The sites were adequately spaced, but having the pull off set up made it feel extremely spacious and private. Again, we love this configuration. We camped on Memorial Day weekend, so the park was completely full but it was still quiet and pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful during check in/out process. We found the roads easy to maneuver our 36'. No issues there for us. We did hit the water park for a few hours and our 4 year old had a blast! It was smaller than I originally expected, but it was an amazing value with the camping discount (only $4 entrance fee for the water park). Kids also enjoyed the playground. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, so can't speak to that. Overall, great weekend retreat if you prefer a campground close to nature. We would probably stay longer next time if we were able to get a full hook up site. We would gladly camp here again. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here a few times and enjoy it primarily because of the spacing and relative privacy of the sites. It can take an hour with traffic, but we use Bull Run as a base for D.C. sightseeing. We have never stayed here when the park was full, and most recently in April 2015 it was almost empty, except every site on the full-hookup loop was occupied so we had an electric-only site and used the dump/fill station at the front of the park. Several of the sites were closed for reconstruction at this time. As others have mentioned, the hook-up pedestals are not in uniform locations but we have never been stuck needing additional cords/hoses than what we had already. The rental cabins are a recent addition and look brand new. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
