  • Picnic tables, firepits, and grills
  • Freshwater fishing
  • Surfing and swimming at Sandbridge Beach

Davis Lakes & Campgrounds

If your family is more into RV camping, then your best bet is probably Davis Lakes and Campground in Suffolk. The campgrounds rest on three lakes, which are definitely the biggest draw. Parking the RV here for a weekend camping trip of lake swimming, cookouts, and games is always a great summer family trip.

We love taking part in the following activities at Davis Lakes and Campgrounds:

  • Boating
  • Cornhole
  • Outdoor games
  • AquaGlide (seasonal)

Little Creek JEB Campground

If you’re looking for a rustic campground near Virginia Beach, we think Little Creek JEB Campground is a good choice. They have RV pads with full hookups for running water, sewer, electricity, and cable. Other highlights include trees, a bathhouse, a laundry facility, a picnic pavilion, and a large firepit.
