My husband and I have walked a short portion of the Bull Run Trail on several occasions. Usually we go in late afternoon, starting at the park store, and rarely run into more than a handful of other people. The path winds through forest and, depending on the season, can be muddy, but there is a boardwalk that keeps your... More

We went for a wedding and as we were driving back we went by the battlefield and made the decision to get up early and walk the battlefield. It was very reminiscent of Gettysburg as they have maintained the site impeccably well. The house was fantastic and the staff extremely knowledgeable. If you get a chance go to the visitors... More

The park is very large has several hiking trails to choose from. There are picnic tables and large empty spaces to have the kids run around and burn some energy. The trail is maintained and there's a river and park benches to rest and admire nature. Bike bells everywhere during spring time.

This is a really nice place to stay when you're in the area. The staff is amazing and try their best to help you in anyway possible. We had some issues leveling our RV, finally decided to just go to another site that was level. Most of the full hookup sites will take some work if you like your unit... More

Bull Run Regional Park is a good place for a family weekend even in late winter, early spring; but be aware of park restrictions and costs! We were very lucky that the park was open to camping during this time of year, as many campgrounds in the surrounding areas are still closed until late March - early April. This was... More

The Holiday Light Show at Bull Run is fun way to get in the Christmas Spirit with family. Unlike other holiday light shows this is one you get to drive through which makes it accessible even on freezing cold nights. It is a little pricey but worth checking out especially if you have family or friends visiting from out of... More

I have been to this place mostly for picnics and it always turns out to be a good place to spend some quality hours with friends and family. There is a decent size play area and apart from that they have open grounds where one can play Frisbee. Apart from this they do have winter lights during the Christmas time... More

Stepped outside yesterday and immediately gave up on all plans to be productive and chose Bull Run as a great way to spend the rest of the day in the sun. The park has some very nice wide open spaces and a few pavilions that are available for reservation for things like family gatherings, birthdays, picnics, etc. There is at... More

Stayed here for the final night of an 8-day road trip from the Great Smoky mountains to Manassas in a rental RV (we had to take it back to a depot there the following morning). Huge campground, quite a drive from the main highway; also the park itself seems to be very poorly signposted if you are from out-of-town. But... More

The park is huge with a lots of places to schedule activities for. It is just nice open space. Cost nothing for Fairfax County residents and a small fee for non Fairfax County-residents.
