Bull Run Regional Park is a good place for a family weekend even in late winter, early spring; but be aware of park restrictions and costs! We were very lucky that the park was open to camping during this time of year, as many campgrounds in the surrounding areas are still closed until late March - early April. This was... More

The Holiday Light Show at Bull Run is fun way to get in the Christmas Spirit with family. Unlike other holiday light shows this is one you get to drive through which makes it accessible even on freezing cold nights. It is a little pricey but worth checking out especially if you have family or friends visiting from out of... More

I have been to this place mostly for picnics and it always turns out to be a good place to spend some quality hours with friends and family. There is a decent size play area and apart from that they have open grounds where one can play Frisbee. Apart from this they do have winter lights during the Christmas time... More

Stepped outside yesterday and immediately gave up on all plans to be productive and chose Bull Run as a great way to spend the rest of the day in the sun. The park has some very nice wide open spaces and a few pavilions that are available for reservation for things like family gatherings, birthdays, picnics, etc. There is at... More

Stayed here for the final night of an 8-day road trip from the Great Smoky mountains to Manassas in a rental RV (we had to take it back to a depot there the following morning). Huge campground, quite a drive from the main highway; also the park itself seems to be very poorly signposted if you are from out-of-town. But... More

The park is huge with a lots of places to schedule activities for. It is just nice open space. Cost nothing for Fairfax County residents and a small fee for non Fairfax County-residents.

This park is geared mostly towards families needing space to run and play. There are significant barriers to exploring the woods though, and after a recent visit I determined that for a Natural experience you are better off at another Park in the area.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Bull Run. I value reviews and most of these are spot on with this campground. Yes, every site seems to have a different hook up. We were on #114, full hookup, pull thru, with location of utilities at the roadside (which we preferred). There are many primitive and electric only sites so... More

Many thanks to our Fairfax County Parks Authority for taking care of our beloved parks. Taxpayers' money well-spent. Love this park and its history! There is also the Atlantis Water Park that is a hidden treasure during the summer for family and friends to enjoy. Let us all appreciate this vast land - land of the free, home of the... More

We attended a large gathering of Bichon Frise's and their owners at the Barn Pavilion. The volunteers from our Bichon Rescue group was allowed to apply a temporary fencing to the split rail fencing so our Bichons could run free during our event. The grounds were immaculate, the picnic table and pavilion were all in good condition. It was a... More
