It's getting more and more difficult to find the time and place to concentrate on what is right in front of us and to interact in a meaningful way with each other and with nature. Westmoreland State Park is a place where you can find that experience. It is a lovely, well managed facility in a beautiful natural setting. We... More

We stopped here for the night and enjoyed it so much, decided to stay longer. We were here for the beautiful fall colors which added to the beauty of this park. It is extremely well kept and the Rangers were all very pleasant and helpful. It has a nice beach area down on the Potomac River and miles of trails... More

I have been coming to Westmoreland State Park for many years now. I have tent camped and also rented various cabins several winters. Some cabins are more rustic then others. Our last visit here I thought the cabin price was a bit high but once we got there I realized what a great value it was. The place was spotless.... More

Been here 5 times in the last 2 years enjoy the beautiful scenery and the peace and quiet. Plan to come back again in the spring. Great atmosphere for a couple or families. Very reasonable price for the campground.

Dropping by in October to enjoy the colors and great weather. Westmoreland is a beautiful place. Great trails! Discovery Center is a hoot. Staff was great. Staying in the cabins and kayaking on the Potomac remains on our bucket list. A bargain!

Lovely park, with some great trails heading down to the river shore. We only had time to hit two trails, but enjoyed each. Park also features a visitors and small nature center. Perfect romantic spot for couples, and a place to bring the kids.

It was our first trip to a Virginia State Park. We were attracted by the option of staying in a climate controlled cabin. We stayed for my 50th birthday retreat. I will be back. Our cabin was number 32. Enchanting, rustic, romantic are just a few words to describe it. The cabin is listed as a 1 room efficiency. It... More

I found a bunch of beautiful fossils on this beach. The hike to the beach is a little steep but very pretty. I like to dig along the shore line.

Our friends invited us camping and recommended this State Park 3 years ago. We gave it a try and now we go every year for July 4th weekend. We love the fact that there are spacious campsites, great hiking and biking options, and a nice pool and beach area.
