First Landing State Park

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, First Landing State Park is located by the Chesapeake Bay. The park, which is Virginia's most visited state park, is nestled in Virginia Beach. First Landing offers boating, swimming, nature and history programs, hiking, biking, picnicking, a boat launch, cabins and 20 miles of trails on 2,888 acres. It also has campsites with water and electric hook-ups and nearby access to restrooms and showers.

The park's name was changed in 1997 from Seashore State Park to First Landing State Park to reflect its heritage as the first place where members of the Virginia Company landed. They went on to settle Jamestown.

First Landing is near the Little Creek-Fort Story Joint Expeditionary Base. The base is a military training facility that operates year-round, in all weather conditions and during various times of day. Guests may see and hear training exercises while at the park. Night training usually ends by 10 p.m. but sometimes occurs later. These activities pose no risk to park guests.
