Virginia Beach Camping in Tents, RV's or Campers

Virginia Beach Camping is an experience you don't want to miss!

Many people enjoy camping on vacation. The cost often is much less than when staying at a resort, hotel or even motel. It also can be more community oriented – it’s much easier to make new friends when camped next to another family: kids can go cycling together. You can pool resources for a great weenie and s’mores roast. And so on.

There are plenty of opportunities to pitch a tent or park your recreational vehicle/camper in Virginia Beach.

Read below for some ideas:

If you’d like to pitch your quite close to the Atlantic Ocean, Virginia Beach delivers. There are several campsites available either near the shore of the Atlantic on the area’s barrier islands or on the shore of Back Back Bay/Shipp’s Bay.

Campsites run the gamut from climate-controlled cabins, to primitive sites (some open all year round), to tent or trailer sites with electric and water hookups (perfect for smaller RVs and campers).

Those with large recreational vehicles or larger campers also have plenty of choices when it comes to setting up camp. The area just a few miles south of Virginia Beach proper has many campsites that can accommodate large RVs. Several, in fact, are located along the Intra-coastal Waterway.

To complete your Virginia Beach camping experience, go water skiing, ride an inner tube, take a spin on a knee board, paddle a canoe or kayak. Outdoor activities are prevalent and accommodate all skill levels.
