If you like to run, perfect place...More
Quick weekend trip to visit friends, and we camped out at the State Park. There were lots of people there, but we found that the place was quite quiet and relaxing. Went to the beach and caught some crabs as well.
My husband and I enjoy hiking and decided to visit the park while we vacationed at Virginia Beach. It's about a 15 minute drive from the resort area and what a difference in area those few minutes make! You leave the busy-ness of the resort...More
This is a wonderful state park beaches are quiet and to collects shells and sea stones it is a nice stroll on the beach. The view of Military training taking place on the water while you are basking in the sun listening to the waves...More
The beach is great, off the Chesapeake Bay and a great place to take the family for a day of sun and fun. One thing, there are not trashcans on the beach, so take a bag to store your trash. At the end of the...More
There are three entrances with three personalities. The 64th street entrance is hard to find. It has a really cool small beach area for swimming, boating, fishing, etc. Another entrance has some nice trails to hike and the other entrance is more for camping.
This is a great place to stop for the historical significance alone. It has a lovely beach area with a view of the engineering marvel, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (and, unfortunately, high-rise apartments). The currents are much calmer here than nearby Virginia Beach, a...More
This is a great place to come and be away for the crowds. Near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay there is clean sand and calm surf, making it great for families with children. This is also a great place to tent camp and provides...More

Yes you may fish and crab from the park. Be sure you have a saltwater fishing license and register for the Virginia Fisherman identification program. Check the crabbing rules as well. Unfortunately Trip Advisor doesn't allow me to post links so you will have to look up the Virginia Marine Resources Commission on the web.
If you are an overnight guest, there is no separate parking fee. Day users have to pay the parking fee daily (can't pay for 2 days at once).

The beach is perfect for your children!! The waves on the bay beach are calm and nice compared to the beach at the ocean. Great for swimming and playing in the sand. Definitely bring a beach umbrella. There are not restaurants within the park. The beach store has great snacks but not meal food. You’ll have to buy a day pass to the park so you could always leave and go back. There is another small beach on the side of the park with bike and walking trails. There was a trail center over there that may have activities for your girls to check out too.
Hope you have a great trip!
