7 Parks near Haymarket, Virginia
Jul 2016 - $50.00
This is our second time staying at Hillwood, the first was a 3 year stay, and then this 2 night stay. The camping park is great. It's beautiful, green, and quiet from the minute you drive inside. Trees, a beautiful pond, and flowers make it feel so secluded despite being in the city. The camping park is so reasonably priced for the area. They provide a laundry room, bath house, and mail services. - skisqueen

This camping park is a blessing. It has the best staff, a beautiful location, and amazing prices!!! It caters to long-term tenants, which I love, no constant in and out. It doesn't have certain perks, pool or playground, but the surrounding area makes up for it! There is a water fountain, a water park, tons of playgrounds, bounce houses, tons for families to do! The sites are well maintained, considering the high level or rain and snow that falls there. The laundry facility does its job, cheap washers and dryers! The bath/shower house isn't perfect, but long-term residents don't need it to be, our campers provide it. There is no problem with security here, as a resident of 3 years, there was 1 incident. I recommend this park to the fullest, I couldn't have been happier anywhere. - skisqueen

This park needs lots of improvement. First off this is not a tourist park, it is mostly long-term campers who are here on contract jobs from out of town. There is no maintenance or upkeep of the park, all the sites are nothing but grass which turns to mud every time it rains or snows. Sites are not level either. If it snows, trees fall on your camper and destroy it, two campers completely destroyed during our stay. There are two maintenance workers on-site, but only one of them actually cares and will help you if you need something. The restrooms, showers and laundry are very rustic, old and filthy. While we were there, a camper had his back window broken out and everything was stolen out of the camper, so this place is not safe, nor does it supply any security. There were some reports of campers having their LP tanks stolen too. Be careful what you say to the lady that works in the office, she will tell everyone your business. The owner is very indifferent, unfortunately they are the only long-term camping park in the area and they know it, so complaining about anything in the office is not worth your trouble, basically the attitude is, you’re more than welcome to leave or find someplace better. So bottom line, if you are a tourist, I recommend you stay away and find another campground. If you are here on a long-term job, it is the only game in town, but you have been warned. Too bad too, this could be a nice park if the owner cared for it. - smackj

This really isn't a bad park, but the drive into it is pretty bad. It is asphalt but has lots of potholes in it. It was very rough. Views from the pull-thru site we were in were great! Hills and trees. The utilities worked fine. The sites are close but not too close to each other. I'm hoping it was just because there was so much rain, but the grass was at least 6" tall. We were disappointed to come back one day and it hadn't been mowed. They did mow a couple of days later. The sites are definitely not level. There are also lots of ticks. That may have been due to the tall grass, or just because it is a very wooded area. This is a great location for visiting Washington DC. We would probably stay here again. - jacknpeg

This was our 3rd stay at Greenville FF CG. We stay in the open area, flat, level, gravel site. Very close to Dulles, Air and Space Museum and the Metro. CG is clean, well maintained. No real amenities/activities at this CG but at out age, we don't need/want it. Pool and store were closed for the season. Didn't use bath house. Very quiet CG on a working farm. - Nomad61

We stayed here in March before the shower/bathrooms were open. A few others around. Convenient to Mannassas Park. Nice area - a farm - with lots of area to walk dogs. Lot spacing was nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel. - FrankRogers

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. - Tim101

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. - FireFlyer

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. - Frisco Wolffman

This is a beautiful 18,000 acre park operated by the National Park Service. The web site indicates RV's are restricted to 32 ft, but this is not true. Larger units can be accommodated. All sites are heavily wooded and the campground is 7 miles from the entrance to the park. The staff and campground host are very helpful and friendly. This is a campground for people who want to be close to nature. If you desire swimming pools, etc., this park is not for you. It is within a 1/2 mile of I-95 located just 30 miles south of Washington D.C. - geodrake

This is a National Park facility, 18,000 acre forest with 100 camp sites carved out of the forest. Reservations are available, but not necessary. All sites have paved parking. Many miles of hiking trails. A concession operated RV park with full hook-ups is available, but does not provide access to the park. - geodrake

We stayed here 18 months ago and gave it a lower rating, likely because it was our first experience without water and sewer. Now that we're much more experienced (and know what we like), we're much happier with Lake Fairfax Park. Since there's no water and sewer, the bathrooms and showers are very important: they're new and are some of the best we've used... huge, private, and heated. The campground is very pretty, with good-sized sites (important to us) and mature trees interspersed throughout. It's not heavily wooded, so you will see your neighbors. The price sounds high for an electric-only campground, but it's appropriate for the region, and is half the price of the only commercial RV park in the area (where your awning almost touches your neighbor's rig). There are miles of hiking/biking trails in the woods, but watch out for ticks on you and your dogs (the campground is very dog-friendly). The skateboard park was very busy (but closed at dusk while we were there), so I suggest getting a campsite on the other side of the campground. One oddity at the dump station was that the potable water spigot was right next to the sewer dump, while the non-potable (for rinsing sewer hoses, etc.) was further away. I'm not a fan of seeing the potable spigot one foot away from the sewer at a dump station. Due to the excellent location in Northern Virginia, the large sites, and the new bath/shower house, we really enjoyed our stay, and will be back again. - LifeRebooted

This park could be a 10 but no water or sewer or wi- fi at any sites. No pull thru either yet there is a water park on the grounds. Long drive to camping area and twisty hills for a motor home towing. $40 with senior discount but close to where we had to be and Cherry Hill is just too far and must use I-495 which is always bad. - lesashubby

We stayed for 10 nights while a major new sewer line was being installed by the Fairfax County construction team. This is designed to ensure the blockages referred to in a recent post are a thing of the past. The only major drawback with this park is the lack of water at each site. However we conserve water by showering at the individual bathrooms which are new, large, warm and of the highest quality. The park is busy on Friday afternoon through to Sunday morning. The lack of water at the sites, no full hook-ups and lack of seasonals, means the park is relatively quiet during the week. Most campers are either visiting family in the area or using the park as a base to visit Washington DC. - R and M

We really liked this place - in spite of the fact that it didn't have cable, and that it was a good 20 min.+ from the nearest Metro! Our site was level, shaded, peaceful, and the staff, when we did see her, was super nice. I just wish we could have stayed longer - but they were already booked! Nice place. I did notice other site had some rough spots that could make for some leveling problems, so it might depend on where you got assigned, I guess. Oh, and the WiFi pole was right next to us, so reception was great!! - MarieB

Price is good for the area. Greatly enjoyed our 6 night stay. Sites: Yes, sites are tight, and really long RV's may find some sites too short (our 32' MH (2 slides)was fine, but toad had to be separated.) All sites seemed level. Table, wrapped water (for winter use) and 50 amp electric + sewer fine. Paved interior roads, hard gravel sites. Employees are very friendly and helpful. Pool was exceptionally clean and large enough for all. WiFi was weak (as usual for campgrounds). Our Site (D7) good for Sat TV, but many others iffy. Bathhouses immaculate and shower stalls large! Campfires only allowed in raised fire rings. They had them for rent $6/night. Could only us their firewood (local and state regulations). Good Sam park. - pamhyatt1

We stayed 4 nights to see the area as there isn't much to choose from in the area.
The park has easy access to & from Interstate 95.
The campground is on NPS land. It was built on hill so there might be a hand full of sites that are close to being level. The vast majority of the sites have a 2 directional slope making it difficult to get level including the new 80' back in sites for big rigs. Only F16 & F17 are close to being level.
The interior roads are paved but very narrow with tree encroachment from above and sides. A lot of the trees could use some trimming but being on NPS land that probably won't happen. The sites are a mixture of pavement and gravel. There isn't much privacy between the sites because they are very close to each other.
The tree canopy made satellite reception difficult to impossible. A few sites could get reception by setting up the dish outside of their sites with long runs of cable across the roads. A few sites in the center of the CG around the pool in the "C" row had the best chance to get satellite reception but they seem to be water & 30 AMP electric only. Was told that site F17 had gotten satellite reception in the past. That is no longer a possibility. It seems that none of the new 80' back in sites (F12 to F18) had any chance of getting satellite reception.
The broadcast channels did not include any of the major networks with sufficient reception for a satisfactory picture.
WiFi reception was surprisingly good except in the rain.
The designated fenced pet area was adequate. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. There was a bag dispenser next to the fenced dog area to pick up waste and a can to dispose of waste.
A couple of dumpsters available around the campground.
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.
Would not stay here again. - bsb814
