The Naval flights have been discussed and can be pretty loud at times. We had a supersite, and it was very nice, level, and clean. The staff was very polite and helpful. The dog park is huge and clean, however, our German Shepard escaped when we weren't looking. My wife was reading while the dogs exercised, and we think the Shepard opened a gate with her nose. The staff was very helpful catching her and getting her back to us. Overall, a nice place.

This park is one of the original CCC parks in Virginia. It is quite large and has three CGs. CGs "B" and "C" are better suited to tenters, pop-ups, and small campers. There are W/E sites in each CG but also many primitive sites. CG "A" is where you should go if you have a larger rig. Even this CG is very tight to get around and some of the sites are very difficult to enter or leave. While we were there, the inch worms were in season and they were very aggravating so beware in early May. It was very quiet and the CG was almost deserted during the week. As with most Virginia state parks this one is nice and the staff is great.

Very nice park with a great staff. It was early in the season, so many of the sites were closed. There are not very many sites that will handle big rigs, so get there early to get the best sites. The Orange sites are waterfront on the lake and several have excellent views. There is not much in the surrounding area, but this is a great park if you are a boater. There are two boat ramps and a concession that rents pontoon boats. While we did not use a cottage, they appear to be very nice.

I stayed here for two months so the rate is the monthly rate. As noted the sites are a little tight but long and most are level. Occasionally you get a slight sewer smell if the wind is from the north but not very often. Nice heated pool, two laundries, very nice club house with individual bath rooms. The weekend dinners and entertainment are very nice at a reasonable price. Mostly snowbirds that were very friendly. Enjoyed our stay.

I had the good fortune to get one of the best sites in the park (#42), a level, long pull through with plenty of room. It does appear most of the sites are close together and tight to access. The CG is a long distance from the road so noise was not an issue. Beautiful lake and a clean CG. The staff was super nice and accommodating.

Date of Stay:

As noted the 30 amp pull throughs were level side to side but required unhooking to level front to back. The road in and out requires some attention particularly in the dark as you appear to be heading down the entrance ramp to the interstate. OK for an overnight.

We haven't been here for several years. They have added some paving on some of the steep grades. The owners are great and very much involved. I had one of the best sites in the park. This a good park for stopovers and short stays.

Not much I can add. The place was neat and clean, the folks in the office were very nice and helpful, easy access to the interstate. We planned to stay two nights and liked the campground so much we stayed two extra nights. Nice place.

A nice state park with a great fishing pier, a nice swim beach, good trails and a competent, pleasant staff. The campground is one of very few and may be the only VA state park with sewer hookups and cable TV. Unlike many Virginia State Parks, the camp sites for RVs are close together and not very private and there is almost no shade. The tent area is much better shaded although the sites are still close together. There is a lot to do in the park but not much close by outside the park. Because it attracts a lot of boaters and fishermen make reservations particularly on the weekends.

A very nice state park with spacious sites and a state of the art bath house. Verizon cell service is non-existent and the roads into the CG are very steep and winding. The staff was friendly and helpful. Sites are fairly level and well laid out but there is very little shade as most of the trees were removed during construction of the CG.

This place has great customer service. When I called with questions the lady on the phone spent all the time I needed to get information. When I arrived check-in was quick and easy. Unfortunately I had to leave early due to a death in the family and when we went in to inform the office they refunded the unused portion of our money...something just about unheard of. The sites are decent size, the indoor pool was very nice and the staff was great.

Been a while since we have been here and they have added a few things, like a waterpark and waterslides. We had a FHU site (U113) on the hill, basically a semi-graveled spot in a field with hookups. For what we got the price is very high. In addition there is an additional charge for just about everything you do except breathe. With three grandsons along it cost $160 for two nights. We had a nice time, the young people at the desk were very nice and helpful, but the price will probably keep us from coming again.

Stopped here while taking the scenic route through central PA. The CG is pretty tight with lots of seasonals parking partly in the roads. Pool was good, our site (77) was grass, fairly wide and deep and didn't take too much to level. Train tracks about 400 yards away. Route into the CG is through an older town with narrow streets. It was OK for an overnight but doubt we would return.

The park is very convenient to I-190 and Niagara Falls. Sites are level, a reasonable distance apart and easy to access with a gravel pad, a fire ring, and a picnic table. The dump station is easy to access as you leave. There is a nice pool, a lake with two zip lines (which were a big hit with the grandchildren), and kayak and canoe rentals. The price is reasonable considering the proximity to the Falls. We found the staff to be very nice. This is a nice, almost new park so the amenities were in great condition.

As noted previously, A Loop is better suited for smaller rigs, tents, and PUPs. B Loop has very long, level (at least side to side), paved sites with extra large tent pads. The loop was very easy to get around and there is a very nice bath house near the back side of the loop. The swimming pool is huge with plenty of benchs for tanning. The camp store has basic food stuffs and tourist items. Like most Virginia State Parks, this one won't disappoint. The rate includes a $5 pet fee.
