First Landing State Park
First Landing State Park is the first planned state park in Virginia. It features 4.5 square miles of marsh, beaches, and maritime forests. This park is aptly named because it was the first place where people from the Virginia Company landed in 1607. This park is open from 8 a.m.-dusk. It’s rich in history and legend has it that Blackbeard even hid in some of the water passageways.
Whether you’re into hiking, history, wildlife viewing, or beach combing, this park has something to offer everyone. And with tons of camping space it’s easy to park your RV and explore.
