We parked for $7, short walk to beach. Beach allows dogs. Hiking also in park in case other members of party don’t want to go to beach. No place to rent umbrellas or chairs nearby so bring them if you want them. Place to shower off sand right near parking lot. Would recommend as a place to bring dogs. Would coke again!

Located on the north side of Va Beach, this is just a short drive to get to. There is a small nature center here with rangers to answer any questions but is primarily a place to go hiking. There were' half a dozen hiking trails of different lengths and levels of difficulties. Trails were clearly marked. I think there was a small charge to get in but well worth it.

Nice park with many sites that are quite private, and back off the park road. The staff here is very friendly and helpful.

The park is on par with what you would expect in a Virginia state park. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The vistors center is really nice as well.
When you turn into the campground off of shore drive the vistors center is on the left about 100 yards from the small security building (there was no one in the building when I arrived at 2pm). Check in for the campground is 4pm. I had a reserved site so I drove directly to the site and set up camp. Oops, remember to check in first.
If you are making reservations on the internet there are pictures and a good descriptions of the sites. It is a long walk to the beach so either pack lite or bring a cart for your stuff. Dogs are allowed on the beach on leash. The park does not follow the same rules as the public beach at the oceanfront. The bathhouses were clean and outdoorsy.
If you are in a motorhome and plan on driving it to the oceanfront resort area plan you parking. Street parking is generally not easy to find.

There are plenty of hiking trails to choose from, but we did a sunny stroll along the Chesapeake Bay instead. Useful visitors station with lots of area maps and brochures. Hot Tuna a perfect choice for dinner from there, see my separate review.
