The Park

First Landing State Park is located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The 2,888 acre park is bordered by the Chesapeake Bay and features a number of different terrains and environments including a beach, wooded areas, and marshes. The park features a visitor center, a tent camping area, cabins, picnic shelters, hiking and biking trails, swimming at the beach, and other amenities.

The Cabins

We camped last spring, but have decided to return to the cabins for this year's retreat.

All cabins have AC and heat, a fireplace, a deck, a screened porch, and an outside grill. The kitchen comes equipped with a refrigerator, stove, coffeemaker, a microwave, dishes, and so forth. The bathroom features a shower with hot and cold running water. Each cabin has two bedrooms with one full bed, and two bunk beds.  There's room for at least six people to stay overnight and if we have more, we can always rent cots or make room for sleeping bags.

Campsites

If you'd rather camp, reserve your own cabin, or bring an RV, you are welcome to reserve a cabin directly from First Landing State Park or by calling (800) 933-PARK.

Campsites and RV sites are on the beach side of the park.  Each campsite includes a fire pit / grill and a picnic table.  Two tents and two cars are allowed per campsite.  Some campsites have water and electrical hookups. There are several public restrooms with showers with hot and cold running water throughout the park.

Day Trippers

Day trippers are welcome.  Out of town folks who don't want to stay with us are welcome to reserve their own cabin, campsite, or RV site in the park or stay in a nearby hotel.

Climate

Average temperatures for Virginia Beach in March typically range from 40 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit.
