Visiting Virginia's Eastern Shore

Virginia’s Eastern Shore is the portion of Virginia located on the Delmarva peninsula. (Delaware, Maryland and VA (Virginia). It includes those parts of Virginia that are bordered to the West by the Chesapeake Bay and to the East by the Atlantic Ocean. Click here for a map. Though it is not shown on the map, access from the South is via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, starting in Virginia Beach, VA. (Think Norfolk for approximate location of Virginia Beach.)

Camping on the Eastern Shore, that’s what Virginians call it, is a pricy proposition. This is simply a matter of location. They have it and they know it! Be sure to make reservations way in advance. Click here for a listing of campgrounds. Most have websites.

All links on this page are from this site. Be sure to explore the site in depth as it contains a wealth of information. While the site lists many places to explore and things to do, I suggest you might want to consider seeing or doing the following. Details about all attractions are on the site.

1)Chincoteague – The home of Misty.
2)Tangier Island - See Attractions/Events – Cruises.
3)Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel One of the engineering marvels of the world! Caution: Towed RVs and Motorhomes may be banned under high wind conditions. There is a stopping point half way across but I suspect no parking sites for large vehicles. I would suggest driving your TV or toad from your campsite.
4)Wallops Island NASA Visitor Center. Located near Chincoteague.

Things they don’t tell you.

There are mosquitoes in many places. Let me say that again – there are mosquitoes.

Nearby Day Trips

If you are camping at the Southern end of the peninsula, then Norfolk and Virginia Beach, both located at the southern end of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, may provide you with an interesting day tour.

Norfolk - all the other attractions, be sure to check out the Navy bases. Some have dynamite conducted tours. Check out these Navy links -

Virginia Beach - If you are into the beach, golf and fishing charter things… But remember, it tends to be packed with tourists during the summer.
Happy Camping! ///// Richard D.

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.
