“Beach is so close”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed in Nov. and it was pretty quiet, very few other folks around. The camp store and laundromat were closed. We had a pull through site, which was great because we were staying in our RV for the first time and were nervous about backing in or out. We were a couple sites from the closest bathhouse and boardwalk to the ocean. I ... more

“If you like the beach, this one's for you”

Reviewed Oct 16, 2018

Overall Rating

My planned 2 night stay at VA Beach coincided with Hurricane Michael's pass over the area. I experienced high wind gusts and lots of rain overnight my first night. The rangers were very good about warning campers about the risks and the options. The park even offered a full refund if I chose to cancel. My site felt safe to me. I was bl... more

“Beautiful campground next to the beach”

Reviewed Jun 18, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful campground with quick access to the beach. Site 178 was pretty tight to back our rig in and we would not pick this site again. However, there are plenty of better sites we would choose from next time. The sites have a lot of privacy due to the trees and vegetation that separate them. We did not use the bath houses s... more

“Excellent state park with direct access to the beach ”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2018

Overall Rating

We planned to stay for 2 nights, but ended up staying 5 - having to move twice due to tight availability. There are two basic types of sites - with water / electricity book up and without. Big RVs may have very hard time fitting in unless you know and reserve the right site, but smaller RVs will have little issue. Sites are very uneve... more

“Not a bad campground but could be better”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2018

Overall Rating

First, the reservation system for this park was clunky. If you are familiar with the park and the sites, it might be fine but we were not so we reserved a non-specific site. This was a mistake as most (and the only ones left when we arrived) backed right up against a busy road! We were able to select a site specific site for a nominal ... more

“Ok sites, great beach”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2017

Overall Rating

Our campsite at First Landing State Park was on the bay side. It was sandy and un-level but was one of the bigger sites that easily fit our 27' Airstream and F-250. The best part about this site was the short walk out to the beach. The downside was that it had some sort of goat head prickers in the sand that got on my socks and pants ... more

“Great hiking”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2017

Overall Rating

The first thing you notice here is that the RV sites are very close to the beach. But we enjoyed the hiking trails here more. They are on the south side of the park and include the "Bald Cyprus Nature Trail". That goes thorough lagoons filled with Bald Cypress and Spanish Moss. We joined a ranger led trail on it and it was excelle... more

“Awesome beach side campground with large sites & forest trails”

Reviewed May 18, 2015

Overall Rating

Loved this campground! If you want to camp in the dunes only minutes from the beach with easy access to miles of forested trails, this is the place to come. We spent a week here enjoying our site, long walks on the beach, and some great hiking and biking trails. The campground has a lot of sites, but be warned that the magority are on ... more

“If you want to camp and walk to the beach, this is the place”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2015

Overall Rating

I've stayed here three times now, and enjoyed all three visits. As with all the beaches on the Atlantic seaboard, there are dunes which basically prevent you from actually SEEING the beach from any campsite unless you're really high (like on top of your RV) but most of the sites are literally a five minute walk over a crossing point fr... more
