Kiptopeke State Park is one worth visiting. It provides a great place to camp, go on short hikes, visit a nice beach, launch a boat and see groups of folks getting away for once last vacation during the summer.
Our time here began on Thursday last week when we left a nice campground in Assateague State Park MD. Driving here was pretty easy and once again, along some good roads and scenery down highway 13 on the Eastern Shore.
I don't remember the last time we stayed at a Virginia State Park but our time here at Kiptopeke has been a good experience and one we will look back on favorably.
We needed 50 amp and had a number of choices. Arriving on Thursday before a long weekend was a good move too. We were all set up and could watch everyone else over the next couple of days get set up. That in itself is interesting.
Here we have a big mix of tents and campers. Most of the campers are trailers with a smaller percentage of motor homes. This campground is noteworthy for its large sites and ample acres of grass--all freshly mowed. This is my idea of a great place!
I was surprised at the wide camp sites and only later realized it was because it allows people with boats to park them along side their trailers at the camp site.
As to the crowd -- it really was a nice mix of people and we saw a number of individuals as wells as large groups camping. Many were in pairs or threesomes with a few like us. As far as we could tell (or guess) there were few full-timers.
Pam and I took advantage of the trails nearby and went on a hike through the woods and onto the beach. The trail we chose was very well maintained and a good walk to see some different areas.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles. Hope you all had/have a great Labor Day and be safe on the roads!
