What is there to do?

Nature is so wonderful to spend time with the family in. Kids can run around, spot wildlife, breathe in that fresh air and have a great time!

That's why Northwest River Park and Campground is so popular with families! This 763 acre park in Chesapeake is filled with year round activities, and natural beauty.

The park itself has great adventures for those active families. You can spend time out on the water, enjoying hours of boating, or you can enjoy those stocked fishing lakes. A relaxing option for the day!

Those who love hitting the trails will love the hiking in the region. Kids can explore those crunching leaves, or try and spot the local wildlife. 

And they are just the beginning! Northwest River Park and Campground has it's own putt putt course, which is great for that friendly competition with the family, or you can challenge each other to the horseshoes or the volleyball nets!

Kids - you won't want to miss the playgrounds either!

Don't forget about the campground! Open from April to November, the Northwest River Park Campground has 66 campsites, as well as 2 rental cabins. So if you want to extend your family day out to something a little more special - why not spend the weekend there!

A beautiful part of Virginia to explore, so why not grab those active kids and make a day of it....or more!
