I tried the search function, but found nothing. Any help will be appreciated.
AlabamaLT, we have kids in Chesapeake and camphost at First landing State Park in Virginia Beach. Its a very nice Park but some areas of it are right on a very busy highway (not an Interstate). When you reserve they don't assign you a site but its done basically by size of site with elect and water or basic. no sewer hookups at all. You can reserve whatever size site you want such as, if you own a tent, popup, or small travel trailer you can still purchase a larger site. When you get there they will assign you a loop with a colored card which matches the size you reserved with each site post having its number in your color, you drive through the assigned loop and pick your site according to the color of your ticket. We hosted in the "H" loop and "D" and "G" loop and the best site in "H" are 8-15 which are on a road that parallels the beach, once you get past 15 you loop around towards the paralleled highway which are mixed size sites. In "G" loop most are on a beach road with the bigger and best sites on the beach side of the road. "D" loop is somewhat of a small "G" loop. Now keep in mind that none of the park sites are beach sites as far as camping right on the beach. There is a large dune that runs full length of the beach with a wooden boardwalk in each loop to get you over on the beach. Hope this helps some, I know it is confusing. any questions just pm me
