Nice campground. Very shady sites, lots of trees throughout the park. sat reception is difficult. Many activities including disc golf, water park, boat rental. Small store at ranger station with firewood for $5. Good location for visiting Metro DC. Can only stay there for two weeks at a time. Then you have to leave for four days before you can come back in. Have stayed there several times and will go back again. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped here twice. Once for 3 days to access DC and the most recent stay as a one night stopover. It was not very busy either time. The park is easy to access and pretty. My kids like the huge grass area and the playground. It's pet friendly too! I was not impressed with the restrooms. I do not like the 11 AM checkout. Overall a nice campground, we will be coming again. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park. Good sized, very shady sites, and lots of trees throughout the park. Miniature golf, disc golf, water park, boat rental (canoes, kayaks & paddle boats) & golf course available, although spread out enough that it's a bit of a hike from one activity to another - might need to drive, especially to the golf course. Small store at ranger station with firewood at 6 pieces for $5. Good location for visiting Mount Vernon, but to do downtown Washington, DC, you'd have to start early, drive ~25 miles & fight the commuters for a parking spot at the METRO station. We were there mid-week and the campground was maybe one-third full; it might be busier on weekends. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Great park with a lovely campground. This is one of a series of Virginia parks along the Potomac and it has everything: water park, marina, camping, hiking trails, disc golf, etc. Perfect for dog walking. Hook-ups all worked ok, but water pressure was poor even with almost no one in park (October). Lots of deer and squirrels and birds and other wildlife. Wonderful place to stay but here is a warning: plan your route and arrival time carefully. Highway 1 in particular and I-95 in general are horrible. Do not drive through DC in rush hour and try to avoid construction if you can. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is for electric-only site. Park location: -- Great for exploring Washington DC (22 miles) and the surrounding area yet very quiet. -- Nice trails from campsites to the Potomac River and pool areas (closed after Labor Day) of the Regional Park. Sites: -- fairly level. Large sites with privacy from your neighbors. -- Most are electric only but there is an easy to get to dump station/water fill. -- Hard to get satellite reception as it is very woodsy. Amenities: -- Mostly paved roads - easily passable for our large Class A. -- Restrooms clean and good water pressure for showers. We would stay again.

Very nice park. It's kept very clean; the bathrooms were small but clean. The showers weren't the best but few campground showers are like home anyway. It has a playground and Frisbee golf and there is a small waterpark mostly suitable for younger kids just 1/4 mile out of the campground (just $4.00 per camper -- $8 if you aren't camping there). We enjoyed the short walk to the bay just down the hill from the campsites at the end. They have kayak and canoe and paddleboat rentals there also. Their rates are for families of 4 -- additional kids are 2 or 3 dollars a night extra. I'd definitely stay here the next time I'm in the area.

Nice state park, rustic setting, attentive staff. Good access roads with relatively level sites. Only a very few full hookup sites with rest having electric only. Sewer hookup risers are about a foot off the ground making dumping difficult. Water pressure low and no Wi-Fi except for sites close to office. In mid-April park was sparsely occupied, but with water park within walking distance park will probably be packed in summer. From our door to Smithsonian exit of the Metro was 90 minutes, doubt you can do better from anywhere. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, good hiking trails. Boat rental in park, WiFi only works near office. No cable but lots of over the air stations. They are in the process of adding full hookup sites. Good CG for kids and grownups alike. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Stunning setting. Beautiful walking trails. Quiet and spacious sites. Be sure to mention if you are in a motorhome as some of the sites are not level. Rate only included electric - no water or sewer. (Fill-up station and dump available.) Friendly staff. Used laundromat - clean and reasonable price. Wi-Fi access at some sites (but not ours). We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice regional park with spacious, well shaded sites and provides a great location from which to tour Mt. Vernon and other Washington D.C. attractions. Our site was somewhat unlevel and we had difficulty hooking up to water due to a broken faucet part on the park's hook-ups. The camp is very quiet at night and frequently patrolled by park staff. Some maintenance and cleaning seemed to be overlooked (trash left behind in some sites, soap dispenser empty over several days). One other nice benefit was the bike trail that connected the campground to Gunston Hall and Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge. Overall, we would definitely stay here again while touring in the area. Our rate reflects $2 per night surcharge because we are not residents of Northern Virginia. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice regional park close to DC and an easy drive to the metro into the Capital. Pohick Bay has plenty to do other that visiting DC. There are walking trails, kayaking and a state park on a migratory bird route. Campsites are wooded and quiet. We had plenty of room for a 37 footer. We will visit again on our way by. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in town visiting family and spent a great fall weekend at Pohick Bay. We had a full hook up site. The site was level with a picnic table and fire ring. The interior roads were paved. A camp store stocked with the basic even in November!! They have a very nice pool (closed when we were there) It seems to be a well run park. The mini golf was closed for the year, but asked at the ranger station and they allowed our kids to play. The park is also close to the Metro. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park, secluded but still close to the D.C. attractions. We had a full hookup site (there are about a dozen). Easy to back in to site and level; showers are typical for state/local parks: not the best. Great playground for kids. Water park close by. Close to D.C. and Metro for local attractions. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice State Park. Showers & bathrooms cleaned 2x/day and generally clean except when rainy and people track in mud. No problems with water pressure, electric, or sewer. Quiet park, mostly families during our 7 day stay. Staff helpful. Firewood expensive and not totally dry. Some sites close together, but many have some spacing between sites. None are what I would consider private with screening. Stayed at site #50 which was convenient to bath/showers and kids playground. Only reasons not rated a 10 were dirty bath/shower houses when raining no Wi-Fi. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Tent Trailer.

Very "remote like," even though it's located in a metropolitan area (Northern Virginia). Excellent 4-mile multi-use trail nearby that ends at another state park. Showers were very clean with good privacy. Very nice for families; well kept playground and hiking trails. Sites were a little close together but there were a few that offered good privacy. We selected an electric-only site, which worked out well because the bathrooms / showers were relatively close. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Motorhome.
