15 RV Parks near Lorton, Virginia

Nice little "transit" campground. There were a few campers but this seemed more of an overnight drop and go. Other than that...on Friday this place turned into tent haven. Tons of tents, kids etc. Very loud campground surprisingly. The RV sites were great. Big and flat. Lots of room between campers. To me 60-71 were the best sites. I had 71 which to me was the best site in the campground. Only issue is that there is a kids field behind these sites and there is no clear exit so you have kids walking through your site to get to the road. The campground should provide a few clearly marked exits to avoid this for campers. Other than that there are hiking trails right at the campground. Ranges from .5 mile hikes to 4 mile. Great look hikes. There's a great lake with fishing opportunities. Boat rentals of all sorts there. We enjoyed it. Full hookup was great. - hulkonline

A very nice place to stay, especially if visiting DC. Bathrooms and heated showers were in tolerably good shape, but always seemed a bit muddy from people tracking in dirt. Never saw them "spotless", but they were clean enough to use. Woodsy feel and sites are reasonably separated. 2 each washers and dryers at each bathroom, in good working condition. Good access to DC by driving to Franconia-Springfield station, an easy 20-30 minutes in an RV. Parking for RVs is either in the nearby mall (free) and risk towing, or in an uncovered, metered lot which costs $1 per hour, for up to 12 hours. Metro claims there are two "RV" stalls, but there are no spots marked for RVs. Six bus-sized stalls, unmetered, are marked "HOV" for 12+ passenger vehicles. In two of the stalls marked for car width it's possible to park a little outside the lines without obstructing another parking stall. - OlderGoat

This campground is located in the woods, however, the roads are paved. Sites are gravel, and un-level, ours was back-in and we had 30 amp hook-up and water no sewer. We could't get satellite because of the trees though we could easily pickup local channels on antenna The bath houses had laundry areas, and they were spotless. If they have wifi it would better if you called it nofi. There are many activities, if you go in season, Frisbee golf, miniature golf, and real golf on a very nice course. They also have a swimming pool and water park. - Maryland Traveler

Clean. Pricey. Wifi internet is atrocious. Make sure you have good cell internet as the camp wifi internet is really bad. - Zybane

We stayed 4 nights at Ft. Belvoir Travel Camp. Very well maintained, all sites were paved, easy in and out. The view was lovely and waterfront. Nice and quiet and easy to get to the Metro station at Franconia-Springfield to travel into DC for sight seeing. We highly recommend utilizing your military/DOD benefits to utilize this lovely Travel Camp. - landsmitchell

Stayed here for about a month. Good spacing between sites, but relatively no shade on any of the sites. Hookups were a little different, water/electric/cable towards the very front of the site, sewer at the back. A bit of a challenge if your electric is in the back etc. Sites are not as level as you would hope for in a newer RV park. The challenge was not just side to side, but front to back too. Some semi-permanent residents that "shuffle" from site to site, but still a nice place. - RobT

This is a nice, small, primarily tent campground that is well maintained by the park authority. We spent one night during Labor Day weekend and there were plenty of sites available. Everyone was tent camping. Smaller trailers could back into some campsites witout too much trouble. All sites are under trees. There are only a few lake side campsites with limited views of the lake. There's a small playground and grassy field. There are 3 fairly clean bathhouses which is plenty for this size campground. A camp store and dump station are at the cg entrance. The main park which is on the other side of the lake has Par 3 golf, mini-golf, frisbee golf, fishing, rowboat rentals, ice cream parlor, carrousel, small train rides, and a good hiking/biking/fitness trail. Private canoes and kayaks are allowed, but no rentals. There is no swimming. You can get to the main park by using the trail. I was the only one who noticed a lot of night road noise from a road outside of the park. Otherwise, the campground was quiet. I'm sure we will return for a full weekend stay. - crazy4sailin

Very clean, easily accessible with excellent service and convenient to I-95. - Charles and Joyce Dixon
Aug 2016 - $54.00
For what you get, it sure is very high. I don't usually complain about price, but there is nothing to offer. Electric was so, so when the AC's were on. Sewer connection was not very convenient. It was at the end of site. - xflyhighx

This campground was a total disappointment and is overpriced. It is not being maintained well. Roads have deteriorated. Sites are unbelievably short. There are issues with adequate and intermittent power. In desperate need of rehabilitation and redesign to accommodate modern rigs. Short RV's may find it adequate. We will not be back to this facility. - americanrascal

This is a little known gem in the Maryland State Park system. Very quiet and shady sites. Extremely clean. Easy access to dump station on way out of campground. All sites had a fire ring, picnic table, and large "patio" area adjacent to the site. Most sites are wide without trees obstructing back-in access, though there is PLENTY of shade. Multiple overflow parking areas available if needed, but we were able to fit camper, meg-cab dually and a 2nd vehicle within our site. Reservation website lists 30' max, but we found 8 sites we could easily fit our 43' triple axle triple slide 13'6" tall 5th wheel on. We were also able to maneuver on interior roads without issue. Short walk to the marina, historical museum, fantastic playground and new nature center. Wonderful shaded walking/hiking paths. Easy access to DC for those wanting to see the sights in the Capital. - User3193

This is a really nice park with plenty to do and see. Maybe a little too "woodsy". Sites are a little small but there is plenty of space between them. For a state park, I would have expected better trails. With the river so close, fishing and boating is very popular here. There is even a museum in the park. - tonymaldonado

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

This county park in Northern Virginia right off of Route 66 is a great place to stay near Washington DC. It's a good size with many spots, picnic tables, and few short hiking trails. Everyone was friendly and the park is in good shape. The men's bathroom was clean but the women's bathroom had some drainage problems (a giant puddle). As others have said, there is a shooting range nearby that you can hear in the distance. It's not too bad, and we actually went to it. For $35, we took a class on how to use a shotgun and got to fire about 20 rounds at clay skeets. There were no programs in early May, but they do have special weekend events all summer long. The pool looks great for kids, but it doesn't open until Memorial Day weekend. - The Bees

We just love this park! This is our second stay and we reserved the first two weeks of April 2017 hoping to see the Blue Bells. The park is convenient to the highway and to public transit into Washington DC.
Park roads are good to excellent with just a few potholes.
Full hookup sites are all on one road. NOTE: The hookups for some sites are on the wrong side or at the rear of the site. Suggest you call ahead and discuss if this is important to you.
The park is perfect for those who enjoy nature. Woods, flowers, trails, trees, wildlife. What's not to love!? Sites are spacious and the park is enjoyed by those in RVs of all sizes as well as tents.
We saw deer several times in the park and on the trails. We were also ther as Paw Paws ripened and were able to enjoy them as a snack during our hike.
Please beware of Rocky Raccoon. This masked bandit removed our suet feeder and hanger from a tree and hauled it off to his own home. Rocky returned two days later hoping for an encore but, on encountering humans, fled up a tree. - Moe and Flo are on the go

This is a large community park just off I-66 about ½ hour west of Washington, DC. The park has huge open areas, picnic pavilions and a water park. The campground is wooded with nice sized site pads. The driveways are asphalt in good condition and the site pads are gravel. We had a large "pull along" site with 50 amp electric plus water. A dump station is available. The bathrooms are nice and super clean. We paid $44.76 per night. - Coopsecondact

Do not take Credit Cards, wanted cash. Small Narrow roads with many tree branches that scraped along side our 37 foot 5th wheel. No sewer hook ups, but water and electric were good. 30 Amp only. Tiny sites, only decent level ones for our 37 footer were 24 and 25. Price is right, but the traffic and crummy roads in and out of here in Clinton MD, were not worth the trip. - Scuba Rock

We stayed in the park while visiting Washington DC. It has only 23 sites, but was mostly empty when we were there. We arrived on Friday Veterans Day and the office was closed until Monday. But we found a spot and went to the office to check in Monday morning which is the accepted practice. This is a great place to stay. The price is amazing with water and electricity. The sites are well spaced. Each site has it's own garbage can. The public restroom and showers are not so great, but we are self contained. Branch Avenue Metro stop is about 6 miles away. Very convenient. The park outside the campground is very nice as well. - The Davies

The campground only has about 25 sites, and they vary greatly from large pull-throughs to walk-ins, some much more level than others. Few were taken when we arrived, so we had many to choose from, but I wouldn't have been very happy getting stuck with one of the less level sites. The sites are not very consistently laid out, so tables and fire pits may or may not be close to one another or near/aligned with an RV. Each site has its own trash can that was emptied each morning of our stay. The loop is narrow and winding, and while we certainly had no problem in our 24', we were amazed to see a couple of very large rigs. (The terrain slopes sharply from the pavement in some areas, so a tire on the shoulder could be problematic.) The park office was a challenge to find, as it is across the street in the main Regional Park grounds, which are absolutely fabulous, by the way. (The park itself gets 5 stars!) We got the senior rate of $13, which for both power and water is amazing! The campground is pretty much surrounded by suburbia, so expect to occasionally hear sirens, helicopters, airplanes, etc. There really isn't anything super special about the place - it's a campground in the woods - but for $13/night, it's fantastic. We will definitely stay here again if we pass through the area. - Libre RV

This campground advertises that it has its own brewery (Wild Run) and is based heavily on that type of experience, right down to offering a ton of brewing materials in the camp store. Unfortunately, the brewery is now closed due to a zoning issue. I didn't find out until I got there. If I hadn't been disappointed about that, I would have enjoyed myself thoroughly. This is a nice little campground in a good location. The 30-amp sites, like the one we used, are a bit tight due to the amount of trees, and the roads can be a little scary, but it's a clean and quiet place. My only other complaints, other than the brewery, were the lack of fire pits at individual sites (there is a community fire pit), and the mini-golf course that is shown on their website map but no longer exists. We were in town for my son's soccer tournament, which we go to every year, and I think we'll definitely come back here next year. It's a good spot for a stopover, or for exploring the tourist attractions in the area. Side note -- there are many conflicting reviews on here mentioning the owner of the property. I found him to be a bit blunt and perhaps a little offputting, but after dealing with him several times, found that he's a very nice guy. - SteveMM

The park was clean, the staff was friendly and I had a nice stay. The only issue with this park is that it sits between I95 and US1 in northern Virginia. So traffic is bad getting to the park and once there, you can see and hear traffic on both roads. This is a good stopover while traveling to a destination. - User3064

This is not the place to go for friendly, clean service. From the very beginning we felt like we were an inconvenience and intruding on their beer brewing business. Check in was not fast enough and we should have just left then but didn't. Water pressure sucks. Getting in and out was way too difficult and no one helped us. We went to the office to talk about moving to another site but the person in the store was not friendly and wouldn't even address our issues. After a few hours we decided to hook back up and we drove 30 minutes south to another campground. Don't EVER go here. I don't see them staying in business much longer. the only people staying there are permanent residents who would fall under the category of trailer trash. - Moore_RVERs

We camped here for 13 days as we transitioned from our home to our RV, where we now live full time. Unfortunately, when I first made the reservation, whoever I talked to didn't write the reservation down in the right place, so by the time we arrived, someone else had booked our chosen site for several days - meaning we had to move to a different site in the middle of our visit and then come back. That did not make us very happy, but the folks in the office were very apologetic and comped us a night, which I thought was fair.
The campground is very well kept, clean, quiet and convenient for staying in the Metro DC area. During our stay, the last two weeks of July, it was more than half empty, which was awesome. Our biggest complaint is just the price. For $45 per night, most people expect full hook ups, or at least water and electric. Lake Fairfax only has electric. It's just a lot of money for limited connections. That being said, the sites themselves are quite nice, the water and dump are centrally located, and the larger park is very pretty.
In order to save our tanks, we utilized the showers and they were great - large individual rooms with a shower, toilet and sink.
When visiting the DC area, we will definitely stay here again. - LGRV

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
