Kiptopeke State Park located at the southern end of Virginia’s Eastern Shore and just a few miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. Virginia is not just for lovers, it has some pretty lovely beaches, too. The 375-acre Virginia State Park offers nearly 4300-feet of beach that’s perfect for swimming, surf fishing, or taking leisurely sunset walks.
The campsites are set away from the beach with sand dunes in between; and each campsite offers a picnic table, fire ring and a pole to hang your camping lantern. The state park’s campgrounds include a total of 147 campsites. 86 campsites are open to RVs up to 40 feet in length. There are tents sites and pop-up sites. However, there are no electricity hook-ups.
Before you run away, read about their 5 new lodges built just this year (2007).
The lodges are open year-round and are very popular. The amenities listed on the website for each lodge doesn’t sound much different from the room amenities list at Holiday Inn.
- Kitchen comes with refrigerator, coffeemaker, stove, dishes, silverware, even dish towels.
- The bedrooms come with linens (but no room maid to change them daily). You may wish to bring your own pillow as well as a comforter for chilly nights.
- Each lodge has six bedrooms and sleep 16 total. Great for family reunions.
- Porches, heat, air-conditioning, fireplace gas logs make for a very comfortable camping experience, if you still want to call it camping.
