1 Park near Lorton, Virginia
Jan 2016 - $45.00
Pohick Bay Regional Park is located in a wooded area. Roads are paved.
Sites are dirt, but they were putting gravel down. Our site also had timbers placed around it to help contain gravel. It was the only one with the timbers.
There are only 10 sites with full hookups. Other sites have water and electric or shared water at some tent sites.
There are two bath houses with laundry areas, but only one was open as we were here out of season.
The office has wifi. We were able to get a weak signal from it with our Jefatech repeater using an outside antenna. Later in the week, we moved to a second site and could not pickup the wifi, so the coverage is spotty away from the office.
There was a loop with some small rustic cabins. Also, there were a couple new cabins build recently in another area overlooking the river. These appeared to have central AC or heat. - B D HOWie

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
