Visit False Cape State Park

Sponsored By: Virginia State Parks

Quincy is excited to check out False Cape State Park. This park is only accessible via bicycle or hiking, so he strapped on his hiking boots and set out.

Located at the southern eastern point of Virginia, False Cape State Park is where the Outer Banks begin.

Because this park so remote, visitors must be prepared before embarking on their 4 mile hike or bike ride.

This means having plenty of water and snacks as well as sun screen and bug repellant. But make sure to hold on to any empty bottles or packaging, as you should “leave no trace” to help preserve the wildlife and flora.

New call-to-action

You will likely see some of the various wildlife as you hike through the park. This may include venomous snakes, so be sure to stay on the marked path.

If you are a history buff you can visit what remains of the Wash Wood’s Method Church, including a cemetery that dates back to the 1800’s. There truly is something for everyone.

One of the best features of False Cape State Park are the campsites. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance in order to enjoy one of their primitive campsites.

If you’re lucky, you may even be able to score one of their sites on one of the last undisturbed coastlines. How amazing would that be?

So if you are looking for a nice hike, want to learn a little history or have a fantastic camping experience, make sure to visit False Cape State Park.
