Campground Review: Pohick Bay Regional Park Campground in Lorton, VA
This is a very nice campground if you want to explore Washington DC area history. It is just a few minutes off of I95 south of the Washington DC beltway in Lorton, Virginia. We have been to this campground a few times (it is very close to home) and like it very much.

Short paddle into Pohick Bay and up Pohick Creek. Went a little further than a couple weeks ago when I forgot to put a card in the Go Pro.
Pohick Bay Regional Park 08-09-15 - Part 1 of 4
Went to Pohick Bay Regional Park with Joyce today. Very hydrilla infested back in Pohick Creek, but navigable. The water lillies had taken over sealing off some of the channels in the wetlands. plenty of high tide water which helped getting around a lot. (9:00) I check out one of the many duck blinds in Pohick Bay. Some have Ospreys nesting on top them.
Camping at Pohick Bay Regional Park and National Zoo in Washington DC
This weekend, we decided to take a mother's day camping trip and visit with family. We decided to take a day trip into DC and go to the National Zoo, which is fantastic by the way.
We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park, which is 7 miles from the metro station. This park also has a waterpark (which wasn't open). While there we scoped out spots and made a list of ones to avoid (check out our website).

Mason Neck State Park Lorton Virginia
Sorry if this video is a little choppy. The camera was in HD mode and it didn't render properly when I made the movie. And it is Belmont Bay we are next to, not the Potomac river as I previously thought. A very nice state park. This is a very good bird watching park and there are bald eagles that can be seen at times. :-) The tree with the big hole in it looks like it has a face on the side of it. My daughter did NOT want to go inside the tree because the last time she told me she was in the redwood forest she did that and spiders were inside the tree and scared her!

Pohick Bay Regional Park 05-03-15 - Part 1 of 3
First paddle of year. Water level was higher than normal due to Spring runoff. I was able to get to some areas in the Pohick Creek wetlands that I hadn't been able to access due to low water. Saw a bald eagle (maybe two or the first one twice), an Osprey and some Canada Geese. The latter being rather vocal about my presence. I take advantage of the higher water level cut across into the Pohick Bay wetlands. Normally I would get stuck and end up treading mucky mud. (2:20) I pass some other kayakers heading back in and some more at (3:10). At (12:40) I pass a fisherman in a canoe or similar type boat. (15:35) I head into one of the channels of the wetlands.
Back to Bull Run Park
We gave some freinds a weekend without kids! The young 'uns really like our camper. They were after all of us to go camping! So we brought them to Bull Run!
This is the closest best camp ground to Culpeper. The Park is huge! We were camp hosts here about 10 years ago. We know the park very well!
This is the drive in. In all the rush to get the kids in the truck, I left my gimbal at home! And we only spent a weekend here. We hope you enjoy it!

Camping inside the Washington DC Beltway
The Greenbelt campground is now $20 a night. There is no longer an iron ranger to pay, reservations ($10 one time fee) and payments must be made online.
May is one of my favorite months for Washington DC. I can't make it but maybe you can. This campground gets lost in the National Capital Parks-East properties, it's just 12 miles from the White House and only $16!

Day 23-7 Newport News Park Camping June 7, 2018
This is a very large municipal campground. The bathrooms are very minimally outfitted but is extremely clean. It is very close to the major attractions in the area - Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown.

First Landing State Park, Virginia Beach Review- Episode 91
If you get a chance, RVing at the First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach is well worth the time.
It is amazingly diverse with Cypress swamps, Spanish Moss, wildlife, miles and miles of walking and bike trails. But making it unique is the RV camping sites are right by the beach on Chesapeake Bay, adjacent to home of the US Joint Expeditionary Force training base. The beach is wide and clean and fantastic. Swim, kite surf, or just sit and watch all the Naval ships and amphibious training that seemed to go on every day.
This has to be one of the most diverse State Parks in the country. You feel like being in wilderness, yet are only minutes from major shopping areas in Virginia Beach.
Give it a try and leave a comment with your thoughts.
Pohick Bay Regional Park-Accotink Creek 06-29-14 Part 2 of 4
At a fork in the creek. I go right. (1:15) I pass some fishermen who notice my GoPro. I head deeper into the right fork, poke around and find it's a dead end. I go back and take the left fork. This one winds on around to intersect the main route into Accotink Creek. (12:40) I pass another duck blind and another branch into the wetlands. The terrain starts getting more woodsy with fallen trees overhanging the creek. (19:45) I get to the foot bridge I'd heard about. I paddle a little ways past it and see the creek blocked with fallen trees.
