This is a nice State park. There are three campgounds; A, B, C. A & B have electric and water. Campground A has paved roads and sites. Campgound B has gravel roads and sites. We didn't check out campground C (no E/W). You can't reserve a particular site at most Virgina State parks so it's first come, first pick of what's available. We ended up picking B-19, only because the campground was pretty full when we got here on Labor Day weekend. The site was a little small for our 29 foot camper and we had to park our tow vehicle at an angle up close to the camper so we would be within the confines of the site. The water pressure was lower than we like (around 35psi). We will probably give this park another shot, just not on a holiday weekend. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Westmoreland is the first ever state park, so it is old, has no sewer hookups, no 50 amp and no Wi-Fi - BUT it is very clean, the staff is extremely helpful & friendly, and it's absolutely gorgeous! Fees are extremely reasonable and there's nature all around. A really great park to get away from it all and get back to nature. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park. We purposefully went Sun-Tues when empty was an understatement. Of the 40 sites in Loop B we were one of two campers other than the Park host who we only saw early AM and evenings. By the second night we were the only transient camper in the Loop and Loop A only had two. Camp host lived in Loop A and visited daily, cleaning up empty sites prepping for weekend. Rangers patrolled frequently. Check in was painless and consisted of picking a site (even with reservations) and then notifying the visitor’s center where we were. Sites are close together and little ground cover and brush remains. You will get to know your neighbors if the campground starts getting full. Not too many level sites and not all will take the larger rigs so get there early on arrival day. We were in site 13 with a 32 foot MH with no problem. Some pull through sites are available, but without jacks some would be tough to level on just blocks. Water in our site did not work but plenty of empty sites around to pull water from. Bath house was clean and kept up. Loop B bath house appeared in better shape than Loop A. Loop A sites are older and not as friendly to larger rigs with similar leveling issues and a number of reversed services. Visitor Center was open, but all other park amenities other than trails were closed during the week. Park trails are well marked and good hikes. Two are bikeable and they are relatively easy. Road to beach has a steep hill/walk bikes warning and its for real. Ride back up will test a seasoned mountain biker. Few bugs this time of year. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is one of the original CCC parks in Virginia. It is quite large and has three CGs. CGs "B" and "C" are better suited to tenters, pop-ups, and small campers. There are W/E sites in each CG but also many primitive sites. CG "A" is where you should go if you have a larger rig. Even this CG is very tight to get around and some of the sites are very difficult to enter or leave. While we were there, the inch worms were in season and they were very aggravating so beware in early May. It was very quiet and the CG was almost deserted during the week. As with most Virginia state parks this one is nice and the staff is great. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is absolutely gorgeous. The campsites are spread out with lots of privacy. This is a slow time here and therefore you could hear a pin drop. The visitor center is lovely and the staff were very helpful. The trails were wonderful as well and we did see bald eagles every day we were here. The only negative things were the bathrooms in campground A, need lots of attention. The window screens were torn and covered with dirt and bugs. The water pressure is very low. We ended up filling our fresh water tank and used our pump to increase the pressure to take showers. They are working on that problem though. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great State Park! Amazing trails (Beach Trail, Big Meadow Trail, Fossil Beach, Big Meadow, Rock Spring Pond) very well maintained sites (we stayed at 28 AE W/E), fun family activities for families (eagle walk, fossil hike, shark tooth necklace making), friendly camp hosts and park staff as well as fellow campers, awesome soaring Bald Eagles filled the sky each day we were there - can't wait to go back! We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is located along the Potomac River below DC. There are three camping loops in the park two with hookups. The bathrooms are older but clean and the sites look like they were redone a few years ago, with sites for long RV’s and the most of them are level. New Visitor Center this year! There is a pool which campers can use about ¼ mile away near the picnic area and boat area. Hiking trails throughout the park. Sites are well shaded. We stayed here two nights so that we could visit the George Washington Birthplace national Monument 4 miles away and Stratford Hall a mile away. Home of the Lees of Virginia and birthplace of Robert E. Lee. Good stop and we would return to visit some of the other attractions in the area. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Motorhome.

Rustic with several options of camp sites. Sites were everything from large to small, level to not level. Area in general was clean with little in the way of downed branches. The rolling hills and woods around the park were great. This park has a great beach area (dog friendly) with cliffs nearby. We were there when tornado warnings were issued and the rangers came to every site to warn the campers and suggested buildings to go to. The rangers stayed with us and kept us informed of the weather reports until the warning was lifted. This park is located between George Washington's and Robert E. Lee's birthplaces. (approx. 5 miles each way). Shower and restroom were clean but need to be updated. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed the park for a Spring Break getaway. Most of the amenities were closed, but the few people and good weather made it very nice. We stayed in a pull through spot, but still a little tight. The Camp hosts very nice. The bathrooms were clean, but being serviced for a day. The new visitors center nice but bare. Overall a great place to center a vacation or weekend in the Northern Neck. We went to Lowery's in Tappahannock for dinner. It had good seafood, but was a long drive. We will definitely return. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice state park with plenty of activities. The sites were nice, but due to the fact that it is very wooded in the loop where we camped, there wasn't much grass. The hiking and biking trails were nice. All of the rangers were very nice and the new camp office is very nice. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Mostly clean, though there was some trash left on our site from previous residents. Roads were narrow, so the site was very difficult to get into. Many sites have the patio area at the back of the site and your door would open into trees and bushes. Electric was not working correctly, but the ranger fixed it as soon as I told him.

Very nice park; we have camped here on several occasions. Has good interpretative programs for all ages. A hunt for sharks teeth at Fossil Beach. We found a few, so can you. Has a BIG pool and it's well life guarded. Good biking, deer and small animals. Near George Washington's and R.E. Lee's birthplace. Great area. Fee was $28.75 per night, including reservation fee. Camped in B15. No complaints. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed two nights as a "R & R" from home life. The park is very nice, well kept up, and clean. For a state park it has a lot of amenities. Only 30 amp, not 50; but that did not present us with any problems. Water but no sewer. Well maintained dump site that was close to campground. We could not reserve a specific site but we could reserve one with water and electric. Site B17 had the hookups and picnic table on the same side. We noticed other sites set up the same way but not all. Just an inconvenience not a problem. They supplied firewood at a charge of $.50 per piece but I don't think everyone was paying (honor system). They have a nice swimming pool and non-powered boats for rent. Both were closed; we were late in the season. We would stay there again. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Motorhome.

What a pleasant surprise. Very nice State Park with spacious, flat, wooded camp sites. The best thing about this campground is the access to the Potomac. Amazing scenery (stunning!), fun beach, and fishing. There is also a nice pool right on the beach with a gorgeous view of the Potomac. All around a great campground and we'll return here many times.

I would have given this park a 10 but the water pressure and power were a little anemic. There were a ton of ticks but that's a given during this time of year. The campground was very nice and clean. We liked Campground A better than B as it seemed to be laid out better. We were in a 39 Foot RV and they had some nice pull through sites. We loved the trails and walked on all of them. It was pure enjoyment! There was something for all to do and enjoy. We will most definitely go back again. Go prepared with food though. We left home without stocking up thinking there was a Walmart nearby. We never did find one. We were also looking for a place to eat but the only place in town was Angelos and that was mobbed so we drove several miles and found a Food Lion. We didn't see any fast food. It's in a remote area. I am not sure I'm in agreement with the fact that they mention asking for $5 per pet in all VA State parks. If they enforce this, we will not be visiting a VA State Park anytime soon as we have 4 dogs. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Motorhome.
