    Camping: An American Pastime

    by Casey | Posted on June 4th, 2010

    Did you ever go camping as a kid? I did. In anything from tents and slide-in pick-up truck units to pop-ups and tag-alongs. We enjoyed our summers along the north fork of the Shenandoah River in the Shenandoah Valley. It was always a carefree adventure and time seemed to stop. Having such fond memories, I’ve decided that camping is something I want my kids to experience, too.

    Bear Creek Lake State Park CampingI have not researched every Virginia campground to give you an honest “where’s the best place to camp” schpiel, but someone else has picked a few for your consideration.

    Today ReserveAmerica tapped their picks for the Top 100 Family Campgrounds and 12 Virginia sites made the cut. Not suprisingly (at least not to me), they’re all Virginia State Parks (insert shameless plug about being “America’s Best“)!

    #5: First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach
    #13: Claytor Lake State Park in Dublin
    #14: Douthat State Park in Millboro
    #16: Kiptopeke State Park in Cape Charles
    #24: Westmoreland State Park in Montross
    #39: Smith Mountain Lake State Park in Huddleston
    #40: James River State Park in Gladstone
    #43: Fairy Stone State Park in Stuart
    #57: Occoneechee State Park in Clarksville
    #62: Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry
    #80: Staunton River State Park in Scottsburg
    #93: New River Trail State Park in Foster Falls

    For other Virginia campgrounds, see our Go Camping and RVing feature article. There you’ll find information on KOA’s, Jellystone’s, National Parks, and many others. Plan your family getaway at Virginia.org or call 1-800-Visit-VA to request a free Virginia is for Lovers® Travel Guide.
