Date of Stay: August, 2009
We have just returned from a weekend camp with 4 other travel trailers in our group. We found the campground to be immaculate and very well cared for. The owners/hosts were very friendly and helpful. All the sites are set for 50 amp service, but the owners have adapters to change to 30 amp which they will let you use at no cost. There is a large stocked fishing pond in the center of the campground and a river running along on side. Most of the sites on the river side were taken by seasonal campers, but because they were not allowed to put up permanent structures on the sites they didn't appear to be seasonal and everyone's site was very well kept. There is a small playground for younger kids and the river is great for tubing and fly fishing. Most of the sites have a concrete patio. The sites are gravel filled and level. Next to the fishing pond there is a small pavilion with a kitchen, laundry room, and library. There is also a community campfire ring that is lit at 7:00 pm each night. Because some of our group were not in adjacent sites, we asked if we could have the use of the pavilion for our Saturday night group dinner and the owners/hosts agreed to allow this at no extra charge and even allowed the use of a couple of the tables. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway, not far off the beaten path, but where you still have that woodsy feel this would be a great campground for you. Our camping group the VA Vagabonds have voted to return to this campground (something that happens very infrequently in our group) in the future.

4Paws Kingdom is a very lovely campground. Sites are graveled and very level!! The hosts are excellent. The camp is geared for campers with pets (mainly dogs) but, they do not mind if you come without a pet as we did. The park boasts 2 off leash dog parks, one for the little ones and one for the big ones. Each off leash area is equipped with a doggy cooling off pool, drinking spots and lots of toys. There are areas for the owners to sit and chat while Fido and Spot socialize. The camp also has an agility park, rally park and a swimming pond complete with ducks. For the fisherman in the family (human of course), there is a stocked fishing pond filled with 5 different kinds of fish. One cg host is an artist and has used her talent to decorate the campground so that it is downright welcoming and homey. The camp sites have even been named. There are different activities scheduled on the weekend throughout the year. The weekend we went they had a chili cookoff. Everyone brought in their best chili and we sampled, judged them, and the winner was awarded a lovely prize. Then everybody pigged out on the rest of the chilis until there was none left. Even though we did not need to use the bath house everything else was spotless in the camp that I would be safe to say that it was too. The only thing that I missed having was a fire ring at our site. There was a communal fire ring down in the tenting area, but I don't think that anyone used it while we were there. If you think that since the camp is meant for campers with dogs that it will be noisy and filled with barking canines, you'd be wrong. This was actually one of the quietest campgrounds we've been too. All the dogs were very well behaved and I'm guessing because they had nice areas to run and play they were too tuckered to bark when left in the trailers. If you get a chance to visit this campground, I encourage you to do so. I know that I will return!!
