Douthat State Park, Clifton Forge, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2005 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here right before the July 4th weekend and had a great time in spite of the rain (every afternoon)! We stayed in the White Oak loop - by far the nicest if you are in a MH. Most sites were occupied by tents or popups, with a few travel trailers. We only saw one other MH. We looked at the sites on the lake. They are small, packed together, and no hookups, but if you have a conoe or want to fish, it is a great location. We also looked at sites at the Beaver Falls CG. It has a little less shade than White Oak, and more crowded. The entrance to White Oak CG is over a narrow, low water bridge. We did not drag as we pulled out of the bridge and up the slope, but it is obvious from the asphalt that lots of people do scrape as they enter. Our site was level, shaded, and backed up to a steep slope with the creek down below. Our son enjoyed going up and down the slope and playing in the creek. The park is dog and bike friendly. There is a fee for dogs and there are bikes for rent if you don't bring your own. We were there for three nights and could have stayed many more before we felt we had truly explored the park. We plan to go again in the fall! We camped at Douthat State Park in a Motorhome.
