Campsites are shaded. Our site was very level but some are not. Some sites also have hook-ups in strange locations. The water park is very nice and the playground area is great for children. This place is very close to lots of other area activities.
Sites are very narrow – comments before about fire rings being close to neighbors is very true. Nice shade though. Every other day there are activities at the campground. Shuttle bus to Hershey Park is great.
We only stayed here for one night – price was a little costly but no weekend minimal stay required –if we ever have a need to be in the area again we’d gladly stay again. The entrance is very narrow and the sites are smaller than we usually like but all appeared to be level. The campground is very clean – tons of flowers planted everywhere and a community garden too. Kids enjoyed the scheduled activities, pool & game room.
I’d venture to say that 75% or more of the campers here were permanents/seasonals/regulars. The grass on many sites was not cut – saw lots of push mowers on live-ins’ sites so not sure if it’s regularly maintained or the responsibility of the camper. We were in a water/electric site which was quite wide but not very deep (no full hook ups available but these appeared to be much smaller - not as wide and just as shallow) Kids enjoyed the scheduled activities – there were 3 day. Mini golf was a lot of fun and you can borrow board games from the arcade. Pool area was OK – baby pool was closed each time we visited and I wasn’t comfortable with 2 toddlers in the larger pools but oldest son enjoyed the slides (you have to pass a swim test to use these). Beach area was nice – roped off area to keep out jellyfish. Dump station appeared to be clean but unlike any we’d used before – no fitting from hose to sewer connection – you just sit your hose in the open pit/hole – and that’s if you even use a hose which we saw some people did not – apparently this is OK here – ewwww!
Great campground. We were in the upper section – site 101 and friends in 102 – loved having the large open field area between our campers – was great for the kids. Lots of scheduled activities run by friendly staff. Kids enjoyed all the water features – spray ground, slides, pool and swimming pond/beach area.
We visited here for a weekend. What a nice little gem so close to DC (we stayed here to visit the regional park not DC but if we didn’t live so close it would be a great place to stay while visiting the DC sites). The sites appeared to be spaced nicely although some tree placement made for some maneuvering when trying to back in – it wasn’t impossible by any means. The park was clean and there was lots of security presence, though we never saw anything to warrant concern. The water park was a nice little treat for the kids and the mini-golf was fun – very dated but fun just the same. We were in site number 65 and loved how it backed up to the play field/playground/open area.
Great state park close to home. Camped in the tulip loop – very nice but no bath house – all sites in this loop are full hook-up. Sites are large, level and easy to back into. Fire rings appear to be nicely placed – away from camper/awning. All sites have lots of privacy. Lots of hiking trails, nature center and fishing. Lighthouse is open first Saturday of the month April – November.
We stayed in the North East loop with full hook ups. The sites for the most part were nicely laid out (few had hills to back up or down but out site was perfectly level. Great campground with lots of amenities – camp store nicely stocked and even had a small eatery. The bathrooms were not modern but were clean. The walk to the lighthouse was nice and it was nice to be able to climb the lighthouse to the top.
Nice campground, very close to DC and also Manassas Battlefield. 10 minutes to get to Camping World and other stores. Restrooms cleaned daily. Nice playground for children in camping area (other playground near front of the park where sport grounds are located). Noticed a lot of sites were not level, and electric/water/sewer hook-ups were placed in strange locations (sewer uphill from site, and electric back in woods while water and sewer on road side of sites). Although there were a lot of pull through sites some looked to be tight or tree location could cause problems. Shooting range within park – noise can be heard but not bothersome. We'll return again in a warmer month to try out the pool area.
Very clean and friendly campground. Lots of great scheduled activities – loved all the Halloween themed games and events. Close location to Natural Bridge and Virginia Safari Park. Can’t wait to visit again. (Rate is full hookup pull-thru with charge for 2 additional people & good sam discount)
We stayed at the Houck area in the Addison Run Loop at an electric site. We were right next to a water spigot which was very convenient, there appeared to be plenty of them spaced out for group use. The restrooms were very nice and clean, there were paths from every inside loop campsite to the restroom area which was nice. All the campsites appeared to be level and were fairly easy to back into. Security patrolled regularly but we never saw anything questionable: the campground is in a gated area of the state park. We saw signs warning of black bear and rattle snakes but the only wild animals we saw were chipmunks, and maybe the kids we had bought with us. We hiked the campground & cliff trails to the falls, a little more difficult than we were expecting them to be since we hadn’t read the trail descriptions before heading out but definitely do-able even with small children. We can’t wait to return here to camp again.
Nice state park. We stayed at the Hollofield area – the campground is at the top of a mountain. Near the main entrance there was a hiking trail down a mountain, along the river edge and to a train tunnel. We didn’t visit the other hiking areas this trip but plan to return sometime to see the entire park. There was a dated playground near the camping loop but a nicer play area for the kids down by the main entrance. Saturday night we enjoyed the Scales & Tails program at the campfire area. Some sites looked to be tight for larger rigs but we didn't have any problems, all sites are back in. There is electricity available at some sites but all share a central water spigot located inside the main camping loop near the restrooms. There was a dump station that was also located inside the main loop on the other side of the restrooms. The restrooms were dated but very clean. We didn’t bring any but there were signs posted near the restroom asking people to not bring their own firewood ~ both camp hosts sites had some for sale.
Large spaces – easy to maneuver. Beautiful state park – huge 40 minutes to drive from north to south entrances. Nice pool within park – 15 minute drive from campground. Convenient water spigot locations.
Nice county park campground. Most sites level. Bathrooms dated but clean – scalding water in shower when toilets are flushed. Water Park was nice - $9 discounted camper fee per person includes rides on carousal.
Nice campground. Great pool and playground area. Sites tight to back into (we have a 27’ trailer). Bathrooms were dated but very clean. We stayed in the electric hook up loop and even though there isn’t water at every site, spigots are spaced appropriately.
Great state park. Large sites, each site has an attached pad which includes a fire ring/grill and picnic table. Sites are separated by trees. Lots to do with hiking trails, fossil cliffs, beach, picnic areas, paddle boats, pool and playground.
Great campground with lots of scheduled activities. We stayed during an amenity free weekend (could get expensive once other fee/charges are added at other times). All restrooms were clean and the campground was well patrolled.
We enjoyed another great visit with the bears. All of the planned activities are great; the kids had a lot of fun. Thanks to the rain on Friday we received a $10 off coupon for our next visit. The water park does not look to be anywhere near completion (glad we visited on the amenity free weekend). The roads need improvement (because of all of the construction) but since we just have a tent they weren't a problem to us. Our rate includes the Club Yogi Discount.
