As usual, Virginia State Parks are the best! So many things to do here - swim at the lake, hike the trails, Geocache, picnic, Ranger programs or just relax.
We did not have a site-specific reservation, so we had to pick one of the few remaining...
This park is a little bit dated and cramped for our tastes. We got an outer loop spot which was a lot more private than inside the loop. There was a bit of trash around the site - especially in the fire pit.
The showers were very nice and the...
We were thrilled with site #33 as it's right on the water and fairly secluded. There was a family of ducks that would come out of the water and walk up to our site :)
We had to switch to site 18 after two days and it was a bit of a let down...
This is a city park that does not take online reservations. We pulled up to the ranger station and paid $20 when we got there. The roads to the sites are very narrow despite being two way roads.
We found one of the better sites even though...
We love Virginia State Parks, but we weren't thrilled with campground B. It's smaller and has no hookups, which is fine. It had very little privacy though unfortunately (at least by VA State Park standards).
We had trouble getting to our site...

1) Ranger led programs every day.
2) A beach to swim at (James River)
3) Shark teeth hunting on the beach.
4) Kayaking/Canoeing on the James river.
5) An old plantation that had several...
This is a large park that's broken into several different areas. We were in the Deer run area which was fairly basic with a bit of privacy. This is a nice state park with a boating/kayaking area and other nice amenities.
It's not too far...
We went here after going to the Delaware beaches. It's not too far of a drive, and the next day we took another short drive to Ocean City Maryland.
It's a nice rustic park that you can kayak on the lake. The sites are a bit close...
The highlight of our stay was biking 6 miles south to Rehoboth Beach. The trail was beautiful as it meandered through woods and marshlands. Instead of trying to find RV parking at the beach, we just locked up our bikes there :)
The beach at...
This park is not far from NYC and reasonably priced. It has a very large beach on a lake and several excellent trails to hike. It's large, so you have to drive to get to the lake or nature center.
