We really loved the proximity to I-64 which made it really easy to get to the attractions that we wanted to see. The staff at the park was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They also responded very quickly to problems (latch on the dog run was broken and was repaired within a couple of hours). The kids enjoyed the pool (although there's no kiddie pool) and the mini-golf. I didn't have any major complaints, however I did find it difficult getting into my assigned site (#61). First off, I was told to enter the row the wrong way to back into the site (this row has sites angled both ways). This campground has concrete pads which make leveling very easy, however some sites have a steeper approach than others. The site I was assigned had a steep enough approach that I needed to use 4WD to back the trailer up onto the pad. We were told that 1 vehicle could park at the site, however with our 32' trailer we could only park parallel to the road. Overall we had a great time here, however next time we will request a different site.

This is one of the places that I love to go to get away. My kids love the swim beach and there is another beach where I can take my dogs for a walk. I knocked off points for the pet fee ($5/pet per night), the additional charge for fishing (was free with camping last time I was here), and the bath house was filthy during our entire stay. There is also an additional $5 administrative fee added. Overall, our experience was great and we plan to return.

This is a local park for me and is a great getaway for the weekend without traveling far. We stay in the newer section where the sites are more level, however they don't tend to have as many trees as the older section. The bath house does get hot (the temp was near 100 while we were there), however it is cleaned regularly. There is a playground for the younger kids to play on and a small camp store with laundry facilities. There are many other activities that the park offers for free or low cost such as: guided hikes, a nature center, kayak rentals, as well as the pool that is a .75 mile hike. The only reason for a deduction is due to the pet fee that VA State Parks charge. We had a great time and will return.
