  • It costs $5.00 for a daily "parking" permit. Since we didn't plan to park, we didn't leave any money. Good thing. Five minutes (maybe less) is all we needed. Unless you are camping or fishing, this St...  more »

  • Lovely park. Was there to tent camp to explore the area and fish. Did some trail walking and some fishing. Campsites were clean and the staff at the office was very friendly and helpful. The pier is really cool too check out and had good fishing and crabbing. Will be coming back again to stay and fish in the spring hopefully for years to come
  • State parks in Virginia are the best place to have fun with your family. We happened along one state park by accident 4 years ago and now have been to everyone and Virginia. Very secure very safe and very beautiful.
  • Wow! We camped here in an RV and the campground itself was ok, you are pretty close to your neighbors without too much privacy, but none of that matters once you take the kayaks out to the “Ghost Ships.” That was an experience unlike any other. It was our first time kayaking in the ocean and the waves were a little rough, but once we got out to the old abandoned concrete ships, it was worth it! Pelicans have made their homes there and were flying over head. The ships were massive, pictures do not do them justice! That is definitely the highlight of the park, but there are also some very nice hiking trails and a beach area that we were able to take the dogs to. Wonderful state park!
  • Love this place. Great camping. I'm local and have spent many of times here with my children.
  • Great place, clean and updated cabins. Campsites looked well maintened. Trails were clear and had great views. Wonderful state park.
