1 Park near Lorton, Virginia
Oct 2015 - $44.00
This park is heavily wooded off the Pohick Bay which is part of the Occoquan River Water Trail, connecting Occoquan Regional Park and the wildlife refuges of the Potomac River. We were there at a bad time, after some heavy rains with lingering showers. It made the air damp, the ground was wet but the site was not muddy. Our biggest problem was backing into the site with our 37' trailer. It took several attempts. Luckily no one was in the two sites across the street from ours so we were able to maneuver easier. The site was fairly level. There are two great reasons to choose this campground. The water sports are great for family fun plus you are within 35-40 minutes of the center of Washington DC. We were using it as an overnight spot, heading for western New York's Finger Lakes and New England to enjoy the fall foliage. - Lucy's Friend

Pohick Bay is close to a family member so it is always our campground of choice when we are in the area. For the first time we used their full hook up service.
50 amp electricity is not always reliable so we had to carefully monitor our usage. The sewer connection was about a foot out of the ground so it was a challenge to get our sewer hose to have enough slant to really work. We had to change sites in the middle of our stay and the second site was a challenge to try to get level. There were some other similar sites with the front tires off the ground. We choose to keep ours on the ground and never got completely level.
After saying all that, we do enjoy being at Pohick Bay. When the grandkids are with us they really enjoy the playground. They enjoy the woodsy feeling of the campground. Pirates Cove swimming pool is nearby. (There was a drowning the day before we used the pool, though.) The trails are fun to follow and lead you all the way down to the Potomac River, where there is another great playground. - Pennimanman

This is a very pretty park with lots of walking trails, right on the bay, and obviously in the season has lots of water activities on offer. We stayed here for a week using this campground as a base to visit Washington DC. The park is about 15 minutes drive from the metro railway station which made it nice and easy to get into the city. It is obvious that a lot of the sites are permanently booked out by people living in the area as the park really filled up on the weekend. This resulted in us being allocated a site (number 52) which is probably the worst and most difficult to get into. All the sites are back in but this one was up a rather steep incline and was the most uneven site we have ever had in our entire 18 months of RVing. We had to use every leveling block and plank of timber we owned. In addition to that the sewer hookup was higher than the outlet on our 5th wheel, so every time we needed to dump it was a two person job having to lift the sewer pipe up to get it to drain. When we checked out we used the dump station at the front gate - thankfully there was a good hose fitting and the sewer outlet was on a downward angle. We also had to fill our on board fresh water tank and use that as the water pressure was so low it trickled out of the tap. The staff were friendly and helpful but we wouldn't stay here again unless we were able to secure a better site. - Aussie Gap Year
