1 Park near Lorton, Virginia
Jun 2015 - $48.00
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

We enjoyed our time at Pohick. Campground includes many amenities; hiking trails, frisbee golf, boat ramp, fishing, picnic areas and much more. We utilized this campground to visit Washington DC, taking the local train which was only 15mins from the park. Only a couple sites offer direct sight of the sky for satellite TV. Since we didn't have a roof mounted satellite, we were able to move our dish through the trees. Our site included picnic table, fire pit and bbq. Our site was level and as many sites, surrounded by trees. Our Verizon phones were able to get a 4g signal from our site. No pull through sites, and some sites are not big rig friendly maneuvering in and out of. Campground within few miles of gas stations, restaurants, mall, movie theater, freeway access and grocery stores. This state park provides a few full service sites. - HappyCampers227
