This place was beautiful! The trails are very well marked. I talked to the ranger at the trailhead. I was pointed in the direction of a good hike for the amount of time I had to kill. For $4 is is worth a visit. There were a ton of people on the trails. It is a well used and maintained... More

My son and his friend came here before 9am for birding. I was there taxi service. I was not aware of the historic significance and that it was Captain John Smith's first landing. I enjoyed the drive through the park and the walk along the beach. Would love to have spent more than our hour and a half.

We camped here for a week while visiting our son who's in the Navy. It's conveniently located around lots of tourist stuff. There are restaurants and grocery stores within a mile. Showers are spacious and have hot water. There is only one section open this time of year (November) so I'd recommend reservations. Staff are not really around and there's... More

Camp sites were reasonably sized and facilities were clean. We stayed at a tent site- most other campers were in RVs. Ask for a spot not adjacent to Shore Dr. Beach is beautiful with wooden walkways over the dunes. Great for photos.

I hate the commercial environment on the Boardwalk, so this was the perfect place. My family enjoyed the beach and watched as dolphins jumped in and out of the water. It is very natural and no one is close or on top of each other. We walked about a mile out from our initial spot before we even saw another... More

This is a beautiful, clean and secluded park that is a surprise when you find it. There are walking paths and tide pools.

We went up to First Landing State Park for a quick weekend camping trip. Its only an hour away from home so its an easy trip. What we didn't know at the time was only one section is open due to on-going flooding from Hurricane Matthew! The state website is not quick on the update and nothing was there when... More

Nice well kept trails with a pretty campground. Beach area is a plus! Guests in from Ohio loved the hike we took. My husband and I come here often, it's a beautiful park!
