The nightly rate is for non-VA resident. A huge state park with 100s of campsites, dozens of hiking and biking trails, lakes with boat rentals, fishing piers, and a water park/pool area. Park was mostly empty during our Nov visit, but I'm sure it fills up quickly during the summer. Our pull-thru spot required some leveling. Back-in spots were spacious with limited shade. Park also has cabins and yurts for rent. Several camp-stores, bath houses, and laundry facilities throughout the park. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Nice larger VA State Park with about 130 sites. We went here on a weekend and it is a popular park. If you reserve a 40' unassigned site come early on Friday to get the best sites. I showed up at 2 pm and had a pretty good selection to choose from but they really started rolling in about 4 pm. There is no early check in fee. We were in site 4 which is a pull through. It was mostly shaded and fairly private. As stated in other reviews all the shade is in the front loop. The back loop is pretty much all sun. One of the features I really like but didn't need this trip was the overflow parking arrangement. In most campground the overflow parking is a bunch of spaces in one location and if you are close good but if not .... This park has numerous overflow parking areas with just a few spots in each site. Makes it much more likely you will be close to one if needed. The camp store is very small but you are not too far from shopping in town. Nice long and narrow lake. There is paddle boat, canoe and kayak rentals. Bait is sold at the boat rental but if you need it get it the night you get there. The boat rental shop does not open until 10. A little late in my opinion. Overall one of my favorite state parks. If you like water sports you will like it too. I forgot to mention that there is a water park with slides. I didn't use it as I spent the weekend in my kayak but entrance is included with your camping fee. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The sites had a lot of space between them, but you're not gonna find any shade on any of the back-in sites. So be prepared to run your AC. Also, for some reason this campground had a lot of ticks. A lot of the sites were level, but many of the pull-thru's seemed to not be that level. We had a back in and had our choice of level sites. Water/electric were very well-positioned. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

We love this park. This is our second time staying here. If you have younger children they have a fantastic aquatic center. A toddler pool, a pool with playground, a very large 3 ft deep pool, a smaller 5 ft deep pool, a splash park, and 2 water slides. We came here at the request of our 7 year old because he had so much fun last year. The aquatic center is free with camping and definitely worth it. My only concern is that they do not offer reserved sites. You are guaranteed a spot but it is first come first serve. I came in on a Saturday so as you can imagine the park was very full. I believe there were only three spots to choose from. the spot we ended up in had good shade but was very unlevel and the spot next door was very close. The neighbors left Sunday and no one else moved in before we left so it was not a big deal. We of course enjoyed the water park every day save one. We also were able to visit the Petersburg Civil War battle site, Blandford cemetery, Poplar Grove National Cemetery, City Point National Cemetery, Tuckahoe Plantation, and several area breweries. It is only a short drive to Richmond where there is a lot more places to explore. We have already been informed by the boy that he wants to come here every year. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very large and well-manicured state park. The terrain is rolling. The back-in 30amp sites are less shaded than others and a satellite signal from a roof mounted dish is obtainable from many of them. Verizon signal okay. Sites are well spaced with privacy from tall trees and shrubs. The dump station was well maintained Gate and check-in staff offered a pleasant greeting. Rate above includes $35 non-resident Virginian for w&e and $5 for reservation fee (even if a site is obtained same day at the park). There is also sales tax. A nice getaway. Want to visit the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum in the park on my next visit. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed on a buddy site with two other family members. This was the first time we saw this type of setup and loved it! We all have motor homes and loved the layout. The campground was nicely laid out although it's a bit confusing to find your way around. There were picnic tables and firepits available. The laundry was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The utilities were reasonably placed for ease of use. The sites were a bit unlevel but not bad. The park is off the beaten path, and the roads leading to it are quite narrow. A friend nearly flipped their RV into the ditch on the rainy dark roads. We didn't use the bathrooms but the swimming area was very nice. We would definitely come back again because it's within easy reach of everything while still being off the beaten path. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

Sites not assigned and the later you get there the less choice you have. They will tell you that all sites can handle rigs to 40' but that does not mean you'll be level. We got there on a Sat at 2 and found 1 spot we could use. There are a number of loops but the sites above 69 are in a loop that seems to be more popular with people with kids. There are kids riding all over on bikes. By Sunday afternoon the park was almost empty and the host told us that only in summer and school holidays is it busy all week. Access is very easy to the campground and the sites. Epic and water on soye-dump station on the way out. There are garbage bins throughout the part and a recycling bin at the dump station however Chesterfield Co sorts all their garbage and recyclables in the trash will be sorted out. Showers are clean and OK. It was quiet at night but the camp host told me it can be very noisy on summer holiday weekends and if you have any problems with noise the ranger should be called. Check in is easy and the rangers are helpful. There is a small gift store where you check in and a campsite in the campground-but I did not visit it. Supposedly there is Wifi but my phone did not find it. We had 2 bars of AT&T unboosted but 4 with the booster. There is a Food Lion grocery store about 4 miles from the campground. Also, since we had a small medical issue while there I can say that there is a Bettermed urgent care facility about 20 minutes away that is EXCELLENT as is the Bon Secours Hospital ER in Midlothian (20 min also) There is also supposedly a laundry on site but I neither saw nor used it. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

Really a nice campground for a state park. Our site had plenty of room and privacy. Easy to get in and out of both the site and campground. Rest rooms close by as well as the camp store. We did have a reservation but were not assigned a specific site, you select what is available within the category of sites you reserved. There were only 3 available sites for us when we arrive later in the day. Plenty of OTA channels. Only down side was the lack of sewers, have to use the dump station for longer stays. There was speeding cars in the campground despite a 15 mph speed limit - but few follow it. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Like most state park campgrounds Pocahontas offers large sites. The entire park could be explored with many hiking trails and watercraft. Unfortunately the CCC museum is closed on weekdays at this time of year so we missed that feature. We were able to hike on some of the trails. It's an excellent state park. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

My family has tent camped at this park many times, and this was the first outing with our new-to-us hybrid travel trailer. We picked a pull-through site to avoid the stress of backing in, but plenty of the non-pull-through sites would work for different size travel trailers. Keep in mind that at this park (and most VA state parks) you reserve a TYPE of site, and then pick the site when you get there from what is available. We picked site #10, and loved it.

It's a wonderful and quiet park with mature trees all around. Our site was more or less level, and was in good shape. There's plenty to do at the park. Swift Creek is great for canoeing or fishing, and the water park is good if you have young kids. Unfortunately, though, many of the locals use it as their public pool, so you will encounter some sketchy individuals at times. We prefer to camp here in the spring or fall, when the pool isn't open. This will definitely be our go-to park for a quick weekend getaway. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here before while visiting family in Richmond. It's not necessarily the most convenient to our family but it feels safe and for the most part quiet. It is much nicer than any of the privately owned RV parks - of which there are very few anyway. We stayed in one of the pull thrus in the back section with 50 amp service and water. There is a dump available on site near the front. The site was fairly long and level. We had enough room for our 45 foot motorhome and the car if we parked it at an angle. It's a bit pricey for water and electric but we will return again. BTW - there is a Virginia State club you can join for free. You can earn free nights at all state campgrounds. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

Love this park. Well maintained, clean. There are two sections to the park- an older and a newer section. Newer section more accommodating for big rigs. Lots of space between campsites, giving you some privacy Playground for children but it is located in direct sunlight so mostly used in late afternoon or evening. Lots of trails for hiking and biking. They needed a little mowing while we were there. Office staff very nice. Camp Hosts extremely helpful and friendly, and they kept the park very clean. Amphitheater where they had a free concert. Children's splash park, and pool. Boats to rent. Some shade in the newer section. The older section is very well shaded. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My stay here was more of a stop over than a destination visit. I am traveling the central east coast this summer and booked my stay in advance to insure a place to park my fifth wheel during the holiday weekend. The park was full with mostly family's enjoying the holiday.

I found the park to be very nice with privacy and loss of trees, which I enjoy. There is a laundry room here with three washers and dryers, a plus for s state park, and they were in good condition. Also the park has a pool and kayak rentals available for campers. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
