Newport News Park
One of the largest municipal parks in the country, this 8,000 acre oasis offers a variety of amenities on site including a 188 site campground, 30 miles of hiking and biking trails, an arboretum, bicycle rentals, 20 picnic shelters, children's playgrounds, a 30 acre aeromodel flying field, an all-terrain mountain bike trail, a five star archery range, regularly scheduled nature and living history programs, a discovery center, two of the best public golf courses in Virginia, and an 18 hole disc golf course.
A well mantained, safe, state park to camp. They offer a lot of things to do, such as biking, hiking, fishing, canoeing etc....
The sites are mostly shady, and most are roomy. If you call the reservation desk, and tell them that you need a recommendation for a site, they are happy to give recommendations. Some sites are almost triangular shaped because of curves in the road, so keep that in mind if you need a lot of space.
The shower facilities are typical for a state park. Not awful, but not like at home. Bring your flipflops.
There is a very nice bike trail that starts and ends at the campground store. It is a novice trail and perfect for adults and children. You can rent bikes at the store, but keep in mind these bikes are older, adult sized, and some needed work on them (air in tires, chains replaced.) Still, we rented four bikes and had a very nice ride.
Laundry room is also available.
Picnic table and Grill at each site, but no fire pit. You can make your own fire area, which is nice - you get to pick where the best spot is for your S'Mores.
The prices are very good, there is a lot of security patroling the sites, and everyone was friendly. Will be returning again next month for a second visit.
Virginia Beach was an easy 1 - 1 1/2 hr drive depending on traffic. Water park and Busch Gardens are 10 minutes away. Really a perfect spot for a camping vacation.
Bring bug spray for mosquitoes and ticks.
The Newport News Park is so peaceful, i look forward to the trails when I get off of work. Miles of hiking, walking, and biking trails, tons of playgrounds for the kids. Discovery center, geese to feed and history to explore. A must see place!
This park is a wonderful place for adults and children alike. You can eat, row, hike, bike or just sit under the trees and read a book. What a refreshing place to be after a hard day at work or just to take your children on the weekend to learn more about the trees, water and little squirrels, which are plentiful. I would recommend this park to everyone who likes the outdoors and I have been there many times in the past with my children and continue today with my grandchildren.
