Chippokes State Park

There was a time when the James River in Virginia was lined with plantation homes and farms. While the plantation lifestyle is a thing of the past, Chippokes State Park gives visitors a chance to step back in time.

Kiptopeke State Park

Kiptopeke State Park is located just a few miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel on the state’s gorgeous Eastern Shore. It has everything that you’d expect from a park located so close to the sea: great fishing, boating and breathtaking views.
