What you need to know about camping in Virginia

Reservations

Campers are encouraged to make reservations in advance of their check-in date.  Campgrounds cannot guarantee that a site will be available without a reservation.  Remember, holiday weekends, race weekends, and special events and festivals are busy periods for campgrounds.  If you want a site during a popular weekend, call to make a reservation as soon as you possibly can.

Seasonal Campsites

Many campgrounds in Virginia offer seasonal campsites for RVs and park models.  Seasonal camping means that you are setting up your RV for an extended period of time and using your camper as a vacation home. Seasonal camping is not the same as monthly camping or extended stays.  Each campground that allows seasonal camping will have different prices, amenities, rules and regulations regarding your stay.  Please contact each campground directly for more information concerning seasonal camping.

Monthly Camping & Extended Stays

Some campgrounds in Virginia allow campers to stay on a site for a long term basis.  Each campground that allows extended stays will have different prices and rules regarding your stay.  Please contact each campground directly for more information concerning monthly camping.

Winter Camping

Many campgrounds in Virginia, especially those located among major interstate highways and in popular tourism and vacation areas remain open all year round.  However, due to the weather, many campgrounds have limited facilities or close down completely for the winter.  If you are planning a camping trip in Virginia between the months of November and March, it is a good idea to check with the campgrounds in which you are looking to stay to be sure they are open.
