  • Can't wait to return! Great campground, nice bathhouse. One of the few places you can get sewer hookup without being in a RV park. Still surrounded with woods.
  • great regional park. Maintenance mgr. was really helpful.
  • Love this park. Has everything from hiking trails to Pirates cove water park and putt putt. Great place for the kids to get outside and try different things.
  • Had a great time hiking with the family. The trails are well-marked, and easy to follow. The comfort stations could use some deodorizer, though.
  • Pohick is okay. The disc golf course here is my favorite in the surrounding area. I don't appreciate having to pay an extra $2 fee after already paying to enter the park, however, and most people don't pay it because of this. In fact I dont think any other park charges an extra fee, but asks for donations instead. Once my group was rushed off the course, even though the course was empty. I am aware of a certain disc golfer that maintains the course since the park doesn't seem to take care of it. Next to the disc golf course is a putt-putt course. You can pay another fee to rent balls and putters. There are bathrooms down a trail across the street from this parking lot, but they aren't always open. Drive beyond this parking lot and you will find a decent playground, boat launch, rentals, trails, a picnic area, and bathrooms (that are open about half the time you need to use them). There is also RV storage, camping, and a water park here, though I can't comment on that. Pohick has a sister park called Bull Run out in the Manassas area, and the seasonal pass works there too. All in all, it's an okay place. It's not my first choice for the kids, but it's great for disc golf.
