Camping Recommendations - 8 year old and dog included

Looking for some camping recommendations... We are hoping to go camping in August in Virginia. This will be our son's first camping trip; he's 8 years old. And I hope to bring our dog along. Looking for some camp areas where kid- and dog-friendly trails are nearby. Ideas?


Re: Camping Recommendations - 8 year old and dog included

@crispy , I used to live in Virginia and found several amazing places to camp, including Pocahontas State Park. One of my personal favorites is Westmoreland State Park and think it would be a fun place for you all to camp. There some great dog and kid-friendly hikes, beautiful views of the Potomac River, and even a beach with canoe/kayak rentals. It's been a few years since I've been there but at the time there were bald eagles that nested nearby and were fun to spot. https://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/westmoreland
