A hidden gem

A hidden gem. Well kept grounds, clean and welcoming, nice playground, camp style family activities - not a resort feeling - a lovely family campground feel.

This park offers a wide variety of water activities

This park offers a wide variety of water activities: canoeing, kayaking, boating, and fishing. Launch areas that cost $5 to $10 per launch based on residency. The shorelines offer views of many birds, so bring binoculars if you want to zoom in on them.

A superb place to stay

We stayed for 4 nights at the campgrounds in a rustic cabin. The camping area is quiet, clean, and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are security patrols at night. A superb place to stay for a very good price.

Love this park, and the kids do too

Love this park, and the kids do too. Having both kiddy and large pool with water slides and diving boards is great. There are other outdoor experiences as well. Nice day trip for the family.

Pohick Bay Regional Park is the diamond in the rough of Northern Virginia

It has a beautiful shaded campground with plenty of full-service hookups, a nice camp store, clean bathrooms and showers, trails everywhere, a playground in the middle of the campground for kids of all ages, quick access to I-95, and is very close to the Pohick Bay of the Potomac River, which is only a short bike ride away at Mason Neck Park.

Beautiful park

Our 1st of what we hope to be many camping trips to Pohick Bay. Beautiful park. Watching the eagles, osprey & herons along with other wildlife while kayaking in the bay was amazing. Everyone was so nice & helpful. So much to do or great to just relax. Very close to Washington.
