Pocahontas State Park, Chesterfield, Virginia

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

We love this park. This is our second time staying here. If you have younger children they have a fantastic aquatic center. A toddler pool, a pool with playground, a very large 3 ft deep pool, a smaller 5 ft deep pool, a splash park, and 2 water slides. We came here at the request of our 7 year old because he had so much fun last year. The aquatic center is free with camping and definitely worth it. My only concern is that they do not offer reserved sites. You are guaranteed a spot but it is first come first serve. I came in on a Saturday so as you can imagine the park was very full. I believe there were only three spots to choose from. the spot we ended up in had good shade but was very unlevel and the spot next door was very close. The neighbors left Sunday and no one else moved in before we left so it was not a big deal. We of course enjoyed the water park every day save one. We also were able to visit the Petersburg Civil War battle site, Blandford cemetery, Poplar Grove National Cemetery, City Point National Cemetery, Tuckahoe Plantation, and several area breweries. It is only a short drive to Richmond where there is a lot more places to explore. We have already been informed by the boy that he wants to come here every year. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

Jordan Lake SRA / Poplar Point Campground, Apex, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We picked the best time of year to go to this state park (mid September). We were the only camper in our entire section the whole time we were there. It was less than 100 feet walk to the water to go fishing. This is not on the main part of the lake so there are not a bunch of powerboats/jet-skis flying by at full throttle. Sites were well shaded and had picnic tables/fire rings. Having walked around some I would highly recommend sites B77- B82 or B15-16. One problem with our site was a permanent lantern pole that prevented our awning from being extended. Since the site was so well shaded this was not really a big deal. The other thing is that the gates close at 8 pm, so you have to be back before then or you are locked out. We camped at Jordan Lake SRA / Poplar Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Honey Bear Campground, Boone, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Very quiet campground. We stayed here while visiting local attractions like Tweetsie Railroad and Blowing Rock. Campground was clean and well kept. They had video games and movies on Friday/Saturday. They were also giving out free root beer floats and vanilla lattes. The only issues we had was that our site was not exactly level and narrower than expected. They had a ton of magnolia trees providing lots of shade. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

Moonshine Creek Campground, Balsam, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We absolutely loved this place. Our site was right on the creek and it was very relaxing to fall asleep to the sound of the running water. The campground itself was clean and well kept. Wi-Fi was very weak unless next to the office and even then if too many people got on the whole thing would reset. The only issue we had were some complaints about our dog (barking when we were out) but even then the owners were very accommodating in working with us to come up with a solution. We would definitely come here again. We camped at Moonshine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Pipestem Resort State Park, Pipestem, West Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first time staying in West Virginia and we could not have picked a better place. Aside from the endless list of amenities the campground was well maintained and clean. Check out the website for all of the stuff they have. We enjoyed riding the aerial tram, the nature center, and I was able to get a couple of rounds of golf in. We would stay here again. Probably not ideal for an overnight stay because it is approximately 15 miles from the interstate. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

Dan Nicholas Park, Salisbury, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second time staying here, and it was a great weekend once again. The sites are fairly level and well shaded. Each one had a fire ring and picnic table. The biggest attraction to coming here is the family friendly park just a short walk from the campground. They have a small zoo, petting zoo, miniature train ride, carousel, mini golf, paddle boats, fishing, and a playground. Everything is very economically priced. If you have kids under 10 this would be a great place to stay for a weekend. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Motorhome.
