To ensure the safety of our residents and visitors, many attractions and events have been impacted, and in most cases, cancelled or closed. As many of us stay home during these unprecedented times, Fairfax County is offering ways to serve you, feed you, and keep you entertained. Learn More
Fairfax County offers quite a few options for camping in the peaceful setting of nature. You'll be surrounded by acres and acres of forest in a beautiful park setting. What makes this area so unique, too, is that you don't have to give up the convenience of quick access to a major metropolitan city - Washington, DC is only a couple of miles away.
Many of our Fairfax County campgrounds offer bath houses, hot showers and toilets, potable water, fire rings, and picnic tables. Some, like Lake Fairfax and Bull Run Regional Park are home to water parks or close to major attractions, like Great Falls National Park. (Great Falls is a day-use only park; overnight camping is prohibited.)
