Lunga Camping

Lunga Park offers beautiful camping year round. Campsites are scattered along the eastern shoreline overlooking or on the lake. Deer, raccoon, squirrel, and fox abound in the surrounding forest. Beaver swim the lake building huts at the water edge and a pair of eagles nest at the upper end during the winter. Watch the mist rise off the lake in the morning as the sun comes up and hear the geese honking their way to the south end each evening at sunset.


Tent sites have orange numbers and are first come, first served, and cannot be reserved. Upon arrival at Lunga Park, select a site, pitch your tent, and then come to the General Store to make your payment. After hours procedures are located on the information board outside the store. About the only time tent sites fill up are on holiday weekends.

Improved sites can and should be reserved at the General Store or office in person or by phone, 703.784.5270. Check in at the General Store upon arrival, make your payment, then proceed to your reserved site, which will have a tag with your name on the number post. Please keep in mind this is not an RV park. You may need extra electrical cord, water hose, or sewer connection for these improved sites. Scope out the sewer port before you park, as these are onsite holding tanks that may need to be accessed. Lunga Park starts taking reservations for the summer season in February. There is no long-term camping or monthly rate. April - October stays are limited to 10 days per month. Extensions may be granted in the off season.
