Camping in Colonial Beach

Camping is a great alternative if you're a fan of the outdoors or you're not into the B&B or the hotel and motel or beach house rental type accommodations. Just bring your tent or RV to one of these great places in or near Colonial Beach!

Amenities: Basketball Court, Boat Storage, Fishing, Horseshoes, Mini-Golf, Picnic Areas, Playground, Recreation Center, Swimming Pool, Kiddie Pool, Volleyball, wireless internet

I'm partial to this place because it's right down the street from my house. It is close to Mattox Creek, so there's water nearby. Plus, there's a marina right next door. It's a nice, scenic drive to get to Harbor View, past farms and fields. The terrain is level and easy to navigate. (Lucky for me, because I ride my bike around here a lot!) Nearby there's a restaurant (Bobby K's), hardware store and a thrift/gift shop. You're only about nine miles outside of the actual town part of Colonial Beach, so it's an easy drive to get to all the attractions the area has to offer.

Amenities: Olympic-sized pool, beach (no swimming), hiking and bike trails, boat ramp, pier fishing, kayak tours, fossil beach. My dogs and I loved to hike here. It's such a beautiful state park and there's so much to see. The ultra-tall Horsehead Cliffs are just breathtaking. The Potomac River views are spectacular. It's not all that far away from Colonial Beach, either. It's straight down Route 3 and the entrance will be on your left.
