  • I love this place. It's one of our favorite places to camp. There is a lot to do in the park and it's very convenient for day trips to Cape Charles or Virginia Beach. The sun sets are beautiful.  more »
  • My wife and I did a 10km walk here, as part of a walking weekend with a local walking club. The trails are very well marked and maintained. We were on a number of them and enjoyed the viewpoints on th...  more »
  • The park is wonderful, with many trails and a variety of habitat areas to explore. Dog friendly (except for the swimming beach), quiet trails, stunning views of the Chesapeake Bay. I camp in Virginia ...  more »

  • There's a little bit of everything at Kiptopeke. Camp sites, yurts, nice air-conditioned lodges. There's a beach on the Chesapeake Bay where the water is nice and shallow, with no waves. Great for young kids! Hiking trails, biking trails, canoes and kayak rentals. We love it there!
  • Lets start with the bathhouse because I don't think those get reviewed enough... the showers are nicer than mine at home! Huge and tiled. Everything is very clean and new. Moving on... the tent campsites are wonderful. Specifically, ours was large (we have an 8 person tent) and we could have fit 2 more if we wanted too and still have room for cooking and hanging out. The tent sites are completely shaded and have pretty good privacy. Watch out for falling pine cones... my poor dog got one right to the head. The staff was SO friendly. The gentleman in the camp store couldn't have been any sweeter and when they ran out of firewood a ranger carted in a truck full in less than 5 minutes. They also have a golf cart that goes around in the afternoon with firewood so that you don't have to get more from the store. We went to another campground in the area for a site tour just to see if it could be a future camping site... the staff was completely different. It must be the difference between a state park and a private business because the mood was very different. The hiking trails are wonderful! You can spend hours hiking and the views are insane. 10 out of 10, would recommend!
  • Great Camping area, the cabins are wonderful too. The park rangers we spoke to are helpful and knowledgeable. Lots of walks and exploring to do if the beach ever gets boring to ya! We will be back.
  • What a nice surprise! The cabins were huge, definitely would love to rent one. Camping area is very nice and the fishing pier was huge. Definitely need to go back soon!
  • Great fishing at the pier, clean and well maintained campsites. Beautiful location! Can't wait to come back.
