Date of Stay: July, 2006
We have been to Pocahontas several times, as my son lives only 5 miles away. The sites are large and all have a fire ring and a place to pitch a tent. We stayed in the new section, as they more than doubled the size of the campground in the last year. They have a waterpark in the park, and the price of admission is included in your camping fee each day. Needless to say, the three grandkids we had with us loved it. The water park is about 2 miles from the campground so you might want to drive there. (this is a very hilly area). The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10 is that there is no cable or wifi. Even though this was a couple of days after the 4th of July, there were stll sites empty on Sat. & Sunday. We definitely will be back. Also, there is fishing, canoeing, hiking, bike riding and more to do there.

Very nice park, with few amenities. The sites are all wooded and shaded in the electric loop. There is no water. The lake has many different varieties of fish to catch. To get to the lake, you have to walk about 15 minutes through the woods on the lake trail. Note: There is poison ivy everywhere! Overall, a nice place to spend a quiet vacation.
Date of Stay: January, 2006
This is a very nice park, with a lot to do for the seniors. We were here in January, and there were a lot of snowbirds here. The park was clean and the pool was open, they offer everything from bingo to Bocce to Bible study. The sites were grassy and not too small. They take you to your site and help you back in. The minor drawback that the entrance road needs to be repaved. It is a Passport America park and we paid a great price for each night. The staff was friendly and helpful. A minor pain was that if you wanted to use the washer/dryer, you had to have get a smart card and put money on it to use them. In all, we will definitely go back there.
