RV camping near Virginia Beach with campfires guide

Overview

Steeped in US history and storied landscapes, Virginia is as patriotic as it is outdoorsy. This state boasts thousands of miles of Atlantic coastline, 22 national parks, 41 Virginia state parks, and more miles of the Appalachian Trail than any other state. Plus, you can tour Civil War battlefields, walk in the footsteps of former presidents, and hop over to Washington DC on a day trip. Virginia’s mild climate is ideal for a camping trip, whether it’s a beachside getaway, fall foliage walks in the Blue Ridge Mountains, or booking a cozy cabin to hit the ski slopes in winter. 

Where to go

Central Virginia

The state capital, Richmond, is the gateway to the central Piedmont region, where pine-clad foothills tumble down to the James River. Historic sites and Civil War trails dot Richmond and Petersburg, while Pocahontas State Park has miles of trails as well as kayak and paddleboat rentals on the lake. Some of the area’s best camping spots are in Bear Creek Lake State Park and James River State Park, where you can choose from tent camping, RV sites with electric hookups, and camper cabins. 

Atlantic Coast & Chesapeake Bay 

With its golden beaches, coastal towns, and George Washington Birthplace National Monument, Chesapeake Bay is top of the list for travelers touring Virginia. Explore the Historic Triangle of Williamsburg, Jamestowne, and Yorktown, then head to First Landing State Park, just north of Virginia Beach, for a beach camping experience. To escape the crowds, there’s primitive beach camping at False Cape State Park, or you can drive the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel to the Eastern Shore’s family camp resorts.

Shenandoah Valley & The North

Sloping woodlands stretch down through the Shenandoah Valley, providing spectacular views for road-trippers along Skyline Drive, part of the famous Blue Ridge Parkway. The headline act is Shenandoah National Park, where you’ll find the region’s best hiking, biking, and horseback riding, as well as great backcountry camping. Inland, Lake Anna State Park, just outside of Charlottesville, and Douthat State Park, near Lexington, both have popular park campgrounds. 

Appalachian & Blue Ridge Mountains

The mighty Appalachian Mountains hug the borders of southwestern Virginia, giving way to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Some of Virginia’s most scenic hiking trails are found here, including a portion of the Appalachian Trail, and the state’s highest peak, Mount Rogers. Nearby, Grayson Highlands State Park has developed and primitive campgrounds, plus yurts and cabins, while New River Trail State Park is a hot spot for kayaking, canoeing, and tubing.
