Fairy Stone State Park, Stuart, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed for a September weekend. This is the 10th state park in Virginia we have visited. It had to be the most beautiful lake yet. It was so peaceful on the lake (we brought kayaks), that if you stopped paddling, it was actually silent. For summer use, it had a very large beach and play area for the kids. We travel in a 17' travel trailer. The spaces were very tight. There is only one campground unless you are bringing horses, then there is one for that. There were a few larger spaces, but not many. The campground is about 1/2 mile from the beach. Due to hills and smaller roads, it is not bike friendly...even in the campground...and there are warnings about that. None of this should deter you. It is beautiful there and well maintained. The staff were all so friendly. About 3 miles back down the road, you get to search for "fairy stones" on State Park land. We found quite a few. Rangers also lead trips. There really are not any easy stores close by...probably within 20 minutes though...so come with what you need. We would revisit. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hungry Mother State Park, Marion, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in Camp Bureson. It is right outside of the park. A ranger check in station is right there. It has a nice camp store with ice, the usual state park items for sale and ice cream! I would avoid the campground inside the park if you have a camper. The roads within the park itself are a bit scary. Camp Bureson has full hook ups with 50 amp service. It has a very new bathhouse. It even has washers and dryers that are only $1.50 a load. I loved coming home with clean laundry! Camp hosts were great. Very child friendly, easy for the kiddos to bike circles around the site. There is a creek nearby that many children enjoyed. You are a short distance from the dam's waterfall. The only other negative was the state run restaurant near the beach. They were having a REALLY bad night and it was not because it was crowded. We finally elected to leave without eating. There is a Wal-mart nearby and plenty of drug stores. The surrounding towns are fun to explore, and the people we're ever so nice. One half of Camp Bureson has plenty of shade. The other half has young trees. We camped at Hungry Mother State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bear Creek Lake State Park, Cumberland, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Very friendly staff. Unfortunately it was a very tight campground. Each campground there seemed to be designed by someone who was afraid to use space. Lots of sites were not long enough for your truck and camper...and we just have a 16'. Water and electrical hook ups were at the head of the site. Difficult when you have very little length to start with. Very, very few pull throughs. If you are in to tent camping, it would be very easy. Although your neighbors are close, regardless. The lake was beautiful and the fishing seemed to be good. The boat launch site/parking was once again...tight. There are good, easy hiking trails and we saw some beautiful cabins. Cabins might be the way to go! We camped at Bear Creek Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Holliday Lake State Park, Appomattox, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Huge lake almost circles this state Park. There are 2 campgrounds, well in the trees. Because of the land topography, some are just not level...but many pretty good. After March 17, 2017, the smaller campground will take reservations per spot. You cannot see the lake from the camping spots, but it is very close. We kayaked the day away. There were some small boats with trolling motors with people fishing. There is a beach...kid friendly. Wal-Mart about 15 minutes away...easy to stop and enjoy some history along the way. We camped at Holliday Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Douthat State Park, Clifton Forge, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Arrived without reservation...got one of last 3 spots...a drive thru in Beaver Dam Campground. This campground has horse stall facilities for people bringing their own horses. Had easy hook ups with dump station at end of campground. Very clean facilities with very friendly staff. Night time was very quiet with the exception of a horse that wanted everyone to know he was there. Pretty neat, though! Only complaint...camp store did not have any newspapers to enjoy on a Sunday morning! Lots of little kids were having a great time on scooters...and you could still swim...but no lifeguards. Will return. We camped at Douthat State Park in a Travel Trailer.
