Stayed here Memorial Day weekend with several families. The campground is clean, sites are big and private- easy to get into for large campers and trailers, and the bath house is clean. There is lots to do here including picnicking, kayaking, canoeing, biking, boating, hiking, spending the day on the beach. There is a bathhouse at the beach/picnic area, but no shower or outside spigot for rinsing off sand. Although located in a rural area, there ome very cute towns closeby to visit. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Closest Wal-Mart is in the town of Kilmarnock, about 20 minutes away. If looking for a church, go to Church St. in Kilmarnock, several varieties of churches available.

We stayed at Belle Isle State Park over Memorial Day weekend. We snagged a spot at the last minute! The park itself is on the Rappahannock river but the campground is not. It is a small campground and the sites are basically off one loop. There are some long pull thrus, and the rest of the sites are back-in. All the sites have plenty of space and trees between sites so you have privacy. There is 30/50 amp electric and water. A dump is available as well. Even though the campground was full, it was pretty darn quiet. Most of the activities take place around the park which is huge. There is a small beach, playground and two places to put in boats. One for larger boats and one for smaller ones. It's a great place for bike riding, walking or jogging as the park roads are quiet. We would definitely stay here again. We stayed here in a motorhome. The rate listed is a little deceiving as we received a night free from a Virginia State Park rewards program. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Within a short drive, there are wineries and restaurants. We had some excellent fried oyster tacos and raw oysters at The Dog and Oyster winery in Irvington, Va. Also, make sure and have and/or pickup some fresh Chesapeake Bay crabmeat. It is the best!

Very nice and flat park. Great for short bike rides and canoeing/kayaking. Sites are huge, bathrooms new/clean, nice store, and dump station is nice. Very laid back area and campground was quieter than other VA parks. Water views are awesome. You can rent kayaks and canoes as well as bikes. Cons: lots of bugs due to water proximity, visitor center is empty, not a big park, and not challenging hiking (could be a plus for some). We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

$30 for 50 amp and water and super huge level sites is a great deal. Wi-Fi available at camp store. All the sites are great and level. There is a beach for swimming, dogs can swim in it too. AT&T cell and data service two bars. Middle of nowhere, Walmart and Food Lion are 17 miles away, 30 minutes away, so bring all your food in. 3 motorboats available for rent but must have basic boaters safety license, and they sell out, so reserve boats ahead of time too. Canoe and kayaks available to all. Bike rentals too. Very rural, farm, swamp, and ocean like environment all in the same park. Laundromat at camp. Two dump stations. Super quiet. Highly recommended. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely State park and campground. The campground has pull-through and back-in sites with trees and foliage between the sites. Electric and water pressure were good (no sewer hookups). There is a nice lake where my grandson and I rented a kayak for half a day. We had a blast, especially when we saw a couple Bald Eagles. The park staff were friendly and the campground was clean and level. We will return here again. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is the nicest, cleanest State Park campground we have ever stayed in. Had we known how nice it was we would have stayed longer! We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a very nice campground with very large sites. There were a number of pull throughs and we were in one. It seemed the sites were all separated by some form of foilage so you couldnt see each other. There were several sites that were next to each other that would have been great to share with a friend. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean and well take care of. We took our bikes and rode the various easy trails they have. The camp host and workers in the park were all very friendly too. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beautifully maintained and manicured park. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Staff was friendly. Would definitely come back; just wish it was closer to home. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Truck Camper.

Very nice campground in a VERY underused (it appears) Virginia State Park. As mentioned previously, there are lots of trails to bike, hike and ride horses on, you can kayak/canoe/boat from the park, and there is a variety of wildlife to see. Even after Memorial Day, the Camp Store hours are limited (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). The contact station at the entrance to the park will alert campers as to where to register. There are no designated swimming areas at this park, which may be keeping some people away from the park. Nonetheless, we found our time here to be very pleasant and relaxing. We would definitely return. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Like most of Virginia's State Parks, this one is great. The campground is about five years old and was very well laid out with easy to access level sites. Lots of eagles and wildlife to enjoy, miles of hiking and biking trails. The staff is very attentive and interested in making your park visit enjoyable. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Just returned from camping at this wonderful gem with my family. Wow! What a great park and location. DO NOT go here if you are looking for cable TV, internet, game rooms, and the ability to stare at the back of your neighbors RV when you walk out of yours. Sites are very spacious, level and provide privacy. Electric and water seemed very reliable and sufficient. Bathhouse and bathrooms were very nice, clean and sufficient. While the sites DO NOT provide septic, the park does offer a site with two dump stations in the general area of the campground. The dump stations are roomy and pull through, which makes cleaning out a breeze. Water hookup is provided at the dump station, so a good clean out can be obtained with no issues. Take your bikes! Our kids loved the myriad of riding trails that were available throughout the park. Park offers a nice boat ramp with plenty of parking. In addition, several nice parking spaces are available within the camp area for people with trailers. There is also an additional kayak/canoe only launch area that seemed easy to get in and out of. In our bike and hiking adventures, we noticed several areas established for having a cookout/picnic along the river. We participated in a park sponsored educational presentation on bats in the area. The Ranger who presented this was very knowledgeable and great with the kids. I really have nothing bad to say about this place. It's camping and state preservation at it's best! My kids were occupied with bike rides, hiking and playing games in our spacious camp area. We left this park feeling refreshed and relaxed and that's all I can ask for We will be going back! We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground for a getaway from the busier VA state parks. The trip out to the northern neck is worth the effort. There are some 2-lane roads coming from I-95, but no low overpasses or narrow bridges to worry about. The campground was spotless and well maintained as are most VA state parks. It consists of 30 sites plus a group cabin. Most sites were pretty level with packed gravel driveways and loose gravel tent pads. The park has seven large pull-thru sites, though most of the sites appeared capable of handling even the largest equipment. Bathhouse was clean and well-stocked, and the individual shower rooms, laundry and dish washing sink were very nice. It was obvious that the friendly volunteer hosts worked very hard to keep the place nice and inviting. The camp store has standard oops-I-forgot-that items and also rents various kinds equipment. Firewood is available and stocked in the campground with an honor system. This is a nice, quiet park for a few days' stay and we will definitely return.

We stayed here 4 nights, and so far out of the many Virginia state parks we have camped in, this is our favorite. We are "empty-nesters" and we loved the laid-back, easy going feel of this campground. No big playgrounds, no lake for swimming, just beautiful forests, wetlands, Bald Eagles soaring overhead along with Ospreys. We loved the solitude. We go camping for relaxation and that is what this park offers. We rented bikes and did some trails out to Brewer's Point and Watch House. Lovely double-track trails on flat ground. Didn't get a chance to fish but next time we will. The sites were wonderfully roomy and private. The bathrooms were pristine, the shower rooms were also pristine. The staff is wonderfully helpful and friendly. We had no trouble with insects except in the woods at Brewer's Point and we just stayed in the clearing and no bother. This park is only 2 years old and we can't wait to return. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As always - this is a nice, clean VA state park. The sites were good size, easy to setup, and adequately spread from nearby sites. We liked this park but found there wasn't much to do. There were 2 miles of biking/hiking trails but the bugs were horrible. They have kayaks and canoes for rent and use on the lake. The park is beautiful (I've heard lots of people speak about weddings they've attended there). Don't think we'll return - not because of the conditions, but because of the lack of activities. We camped at Belle Isle State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.
