Wonderful park in beautiful setting. The park was nearly empty during our 3 day stay with only about 5 campsites occupied overall. Very quiet, great hosts and fairly level sites. Don't count on any Internet or cell access during your stay. Depending upon where we walked we had up to 1 bar on both Verizon and AT&T. Using our rooftop antenna we were able to get a perfect HD picture on the local NBC station and one other. The roadway into the park is narrow and we had to move over for an oncoming car to pass. I wondered how 2 RVs would manage to pass each other. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are big fans of VA State Parks in general. We loved Holliday Lake. Very quiet. Paved roads. Well kept. Clean bathrooms/shower houses. Beach area clean. The kids loved swimming in the lake. Lots of activities--boat rentals, fishing, hiking, interpretive events. We will return! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is new or recently redone. For state parks, this is the best of the best. Roads are good to and in the park. Laurel Ridge area is for large rigs. Sites are gravel and level, but not many of them. We were here in early April and there was only one other site occupied. Bathhouses were the best. No laundry facilities so if your neighbor is wearing dirty clothes you know why. The main attraction is the dump station. Easy access in either direction. This one is by far the best I've ever used. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first visit to Holliday Lake State Park and we really enjoyed our visit. This park is very clean and maintained along with the restrooms/showers. It's 10 minutes from the 4-H Education center where my oldest girl went to fishing camp while we were here for the weekend. We camped in the new section "Laurel Ridge Campground" and we've noticed that this is for the bigger rigs ( up to 38' ) where the tent campers are in the other loops. All the roads are paved and the sites are very level. They have a double stall dump station is was very NICE with a water faucet at each stall. Nice to see this feature. The dump station is very convenient to the newer section. They don't lock the gate so you can come and go as you please. This park is located 15 to 20 minutes from Appomattox NHP and downtown Appomattox. We'll be coming back to this park again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another great Virginia State Park. There's so much to do in the summer and so many great family activities. Check out the owl calling on Saturday night and the group campfire on Friday night. The lake is great to swim in and the beach is kept up. We stayed over Labor Day weekend and the campground was packed and at maximum capacity. It isn't a huge campground and was very nice. The staff was helpful and the bathrooms/showers were kept very clean. I saw a crew come in and clean them at least 3 times each day. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park is in Appomattox and only 12 miles away from Appomattox Court House Historic Site. The park is huge with over 20,000 acres of National Forest surrounding it and that is why you can’t get cell phone service at this park. It is a pretty park, but it is not big rig friendly. We camped here with a RV just 25 feet and we could fit in about half the sites, but many are not level and a big rig would have problems driving around some of the campground roads. We stopped for just one night and you did not need reservations midweek even if you wanted one of their water and electric sites. The manager of the park stopped to talk to us as he was checking on the campers later in the evening and told us that they are quite busy on weekends and that they are developing a big rig friendly campground just up the road from this one. The new park will only have about 10 -20 campsites for big rigs with 3 way hookups and a new bathhouse. He was very friendly and informative. There are Interpretive Events happening every Sat night in this park and on Memorial Weekend they have a big campfire with stories on Friday night, canoe tour and owl call on Sat where they go out in the canoes and call to the owls at night to fly over, and finally on Sunday night a Civil War slide show plus guided hikes and educational programs throughout the weekend. The bathrooms are old but very clean and it was peaceful. There are hiking trails right from the campground down to the lake and around the lake which are very nice. The lake is huge over 150 acres. Just down the road (.1) there is a swimming beach, boat dock, playground and off shore fishing. Gasoline power boats are not allowed on the lake. The tricky part is getting into the campground. We saw signs but the drive in is about 5 miles going up and going down There are trails for horses as well as bike trails and during the weekends and in the summer there are historical and educational programs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only stayed one night after driving all day to buy our used pop-up camper. We had some difficulty leveling our camper on the site but that could be attributed to driving all day and never setting up that camper before. The area was just lovely and clean. The staff was very helpful as well. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Great park. Beautiful lake with great swimming. Numerous Life Guards keep rules enforced. Rangers patrol the park regularly, and do a nightly walk around to ensure that quiet is maintained. Well off the beaten path, so bring what you need! Would have given it a 10 except for the condition of the bathrooms. They were not disgusting, and were not clean by any means. One toilet in mens' room was clogged. I also took off for the unlevel sites, though we were prepared with "Lynnx Levelers", and it took 6 on one side. We loved the park and will go back, just hope bathrooms are in better shape. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our Favorite state park. It has a great lake swimming beach with life guards and a kids swimming area. Hiking trails are well kept and the rangers are very nice. Campground is small at 30 sites. The sites are not very level, it took me 4" to get level. All sites are paved and clean. All things considered we like small quaint parks that arent crowded. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful park and well-kept. No swimming pool but there is a swimming beach. Our only problem was the sites were not level and that was a shame as they were paved and large. A major concern was the entrance road which was 7 miles of narrow road. I have no idea what would have happened had we met another TT entering the park. Would return here anytime if the road had been wider. We camped here in a 30' TT. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small campground with only a handful of sites big enough for our 30 ft class A and many rather sloped but the park is very neat and pretty. Close to Appomattox Courthouse National Historic Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed this park. It is quiet and clean with only a short walk to the beach area. The swimming area has a snack bar, playground, bath house, pavilion and canoe rentals. You can also fish from the bank or small dock area. Our two small kids liked it as well. We are looking forward to going back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Relatively small, very nice. Good separation of campsites -- we find that typical of Virginia State Parks and prefer that to what seems to be, from our admittedly limited camping experience, a tendancy for private CGs to cram as many sites as possible into their acreage. Clean bathhouses, hot water, helpful staff, secure, lake nearby. The only reason we didn't rate it a 10: Several sites are less than level. We had to hunt around a little to find one that was level and the right size for a small popup. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice park with lake activities including swimming, boat rental and launch (no gas motors), great fishing from bank, well groomed hiking trails and clean picinic areas. Sites are paved and are semi level. Park is well guarded and supervised. Great family vacation spot with Appomattox Battle Fields within 20 minute drive. We camped here in a camper.
I'm afraid I wasn't thinking "paradise" when we arrived at this park, nor during our stay. This is basically an older trailer park with some spots for transient RV's. My opinion is that several of the former reviewers were generous with their ratings. The park is fairly quiet, being off any main roads. Access is over a "pothole-a-plenty" paved road, and I had to contend with low tree branches scratching my motorhome. This is an item that really bothers me because it can be handled via inexpensive maintenance. So, this issue and several others confirmed that maintenance was sadly lacking here. I was able to get fairly level at my site, but many others were not close to level. Although I had a 50 amp hookup, my meter showed a fluctuating 108 volts, not enough to run my AC. Water pressure was less than 30 psi. The bathrooms and showers were adequate and cleaned daily. The pool and lake access look like they would be fun for kids. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit. This place may be suitable for folks in trailers wanting to visit for short periods, but not for larger units needing decent utilities and site access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is set back about a mile from the main highway. The road from the main highway is in poor condition with many potholes. When arriving at the entrance, there is an unmanned booth and no security gates. The office/store is located halfway around the main CG road. We arrived late, drove around to the office, which was closed, as we expected, to get our site info which they said they would leave for us, and then discovered that our site was located back near the entrance. Our site was level. In the morning, I noticed that although the CG was practically empty, our site was located adjacent to their storage area where 4 or 5 old dirty trailers sat in weeds (not a pretty sight). I went over the office at 9am and the store was closed and had no posted hours. After lunch, we left for a few hours and while we were out, I received an email welcoming us to the CG and to “come down to the office to check in as soon as possible and pay your remaining balance.” Sometime during the late afternoon, I did just that, but the office was once again closed. I returned at 5:45pm and this time was greeted by a CG employee. I was not impressed with customer service after receiving that email. The public restrooms are clean but very dated. Had to hold shower valve open for shower. There is a lake with a swimming area on the property and the beach has several covered picnic tables. There are a couple of pavilions on the property, a volleyball court, softball field and game room. There is also a “barn” on the property. At least that’s what it’s called on the CG map. The barn is a small 2 story building that is located in the middle of a row of campsites. It really should be torn down because it’s about to fall down. It appears to me that this property may double as a swim club in the summer months (or did at some point in time). If we return here, it is only because we have family in the area and this most accessible CG to them. The campground as a whole seemed to need much cleanup and work. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
No reliable internet at site. Water connection tight. Electric good. 1 bar ATT. Level site. Moderate shower pressure. Very clean pool. Nice concrete pad at each site for camper entrance. This is a family destination camp with substantial lake waterfront and kid oriented stuff. Very quiet. Very pleasant bird and animal noises and good place to have a campfire and listen to and watch birds. We will return. From 10, -1 Internet, -1 shower pressure, -1 bath house needs update, -1 potholed entrance road. +1 bird songs, +1 camper entrance pad. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park is in a beautiful natural area and the nearest one to Lynchburg. Other than this there is not much to recommend. Facilities are old and in need of repair. Management is almost non-existent. At entry to park is a unmanned guardhouse with a sign saying you must go to office to register; however, there is nothing anyplace to tell you where the office is located. We encountered four others who suffered the same confusion. In the three days we were there, the office was open only for a few hours one day. The men's restroom had no tissue the first day and no heat on even with the temperature at 34 degrees one morning. Sites are level, but with only a little gravel, very spotted grass and a lot of red dirt. It rained for two days so, with two dogs, we were constantly cleaning red mud out of our trailer. The rate is very high considering the facilities. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We used this CG as an overnight while visiting the Appomattox National Park. I could not get the GPS to find the address and the entrance is poorly marked, just a double sided sign. The entrance is over a very high RR crossing (so high it caught and bent one of our stabilizers) so exercise caution. The entrance road is full of potholes so drive slowly. The transient area is ok, nice pull throughs with convenient hookups and as we were here during the week it was quiet. Rate shown is PPA good for one night only. CG is ok for a overnight stop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I should have known from the other reviews, but I was hoping since the last was posted in 2009, things had changed. I was wrong. The only reason I stayed was lack of other cg's in the area. There are so many things I would list as bad, I'll just say what was good. The pool. It was nice and clean, but was certainly the exception to the overall quality and cleanliness of cg. It should be called Paradise Pond as the "lake" is really no more than a farm pond with stale green water and an awful bug (mosquitos, gnats, etc.) problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an ok park for an overnight stay, pull through & back-in sites were crowned, had to use all our levelers. Bathrooms clean, but dated. We assumed they were closing since the deck chairs & tables were filthy with tons of leaves on the deck deck, boats were full of water after a rain 1 week prior. I still don't understand why these parks advertise Wi-Fi when it is only available at the office. The surrounding national park and town were just beautiful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff and seasonals/long-timers are all very friendly. Most of the short-term sites have at least some shade and a not too far off level. The pool and small lake are nice. The electric system needs upgrading. In our "50-amp" site, voltage dropped to a bare 110v during the hot afternoon running only one A/C. There appear to be only 3 50-amp sites for short-timers, all the rest are 30-amp. We also noticed that there is a tendency for the sewer hookups to be run over and damaged. Wi-Fi is only available close to the office. Overall a nice campground for a "kick back and relax" stay or to visit Appomatix, Lynchburg and surrounding areas, but short on organized activities. We've camped here 5 times this year, and have another stay scheduled. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Site was not level and I had the rear tires off the ground to get close to level. Access and interior roads were pretty poor. The Wi-Fi was only available at office when they are open. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was very nice. Sites were fairly level and there was shade available at most every camp site. The road into the park was fairly rough with lots of potholes. Very clean and quiet, even with quite a few seasonal campers. Lots of things for the kids to do including the lake, newly built pool, basketball and playground. The only negative thing about this park is the electrical connection. If you go, be sure to have a tester. Our site and several nearby only had 108 volts during the middle of the day. The voltage came up at night to 120, but worried us during the day. The kids really loved it though, so we will probably return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was very clean, but I would only return in warm weather and only if I am in the area. We just so happened to go here during this weird cold blast around Easter. The kids were bored because the recreation room was being built, and it was too cold to ride bikes or play in the playground. We didn't see any miniature golf as the website promotes, but maybe we just missed it. The bathhouses were very clean. The wi-fi is free, but only at the store and only when someone is in the office, which in April is not a set time. Our site had no phone hook up. I failed to ask when I called if the wi-fi worked at the sites or I would not have stayed here because we needed internet access. Oh yeah, if it is your first time here make sure you go towards the lake to the store to register. The little booth fooled us and some other first timers. The road to the campground has lots of potholes. The sites are mostly level and not too close. The lake is at the bottom of a hill, so most sites can't even see it. Leave your bikes at home because the downslope grade of the campground is not worth trying to ride. I can't give it a 10 like others because my experience was not as good, but maybe in the summer time it could be better. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have camped at many campgrounds through the years but have yet found one that was as clean as this one. While we were there, we noticed that they were putting in a new 22 X 44 swimming pool and building a brand new recreation room. Also, the owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this one and will be returning. We camped here in a Tent.

I was just there with my good sam group we had 12 rigs there --it was a wonderful weekend and we all enjoyed it there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. We spent a weekend there and the kids had a blast. Lake to swim and fish. Had free hot dogs and smores on Friday night. Played candy bar Bingo on Saturday night. The facilities are a little old, but the staff was great and everything worked. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall a pretty decent park. The saving grace of this place is the "work campers," older folks that are retired, working at the campground. They were very friendly, helpful, and seemed to go the extra mile to help out guests. Also liked that they had a night watchman. Employees picked up trash at your sight each morning. I've never seen that before! Campground is neat and clean. Lots of activities for children. The only drawback was the site was not very level. I would've been okay in a trailer with a tongue jack, but in a motorhome it was a little more difficult. I'd camp here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is an older campground. It has been around for years and it has a lot of repeat business. It is open to day guests because of it's lake. The lake is open to anyone who pays the entrance fees. Not a bad crowd just a large crowd when compared to the campground guests. The bathrooms and bathhouses were always clean and in great shape. The store was a little spartan but it worked. It had a nice little Ice Cream Shop, if you could get waited on. Our sites were the 50amp sites as this was a last minute trip. They were not too level from front to back, but we were told that on the phone. The sites on the other side of the campground were in much better shape as far as shade and levelness. Overall not a bad campground but if I could not find any other place to camp I would return. The staff was extra friendly. Just not my type of campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground was very clean and neat. The employees were very kind and helpful. Stayed here in 2002. I was not as happy then because of the noise from the seasonal campers. Looks like new management took care of that. Not as many seasonal
campers this time. The bathrooms looked great. Nice clean lake to take a swim. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 10 / 10 ]
This is a great family campground. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Most sites are level and shady. The General Store is small, but adequate and it has a food grill. They have lots of things for kids to do. There is a train ride, paddle boats and a real nice lake for swimming with life guards on duty. The showers and restrooms were very clean and the trash was picked up every morning. This is by far one of the nicest family campgrounds that we have stayed at. When it was time to leave, our grandkids wanted to move here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 2 / 10 ]
Bath houses are disgusting. Laundry facilities are pathetic "barely there". Management
could care less about the seasonal campers; been trying to run them "out of dodge". To have a lease as a seasonal means nothing. They will at any time, violate your rights as an American citizen. As a sesaonal camper with a lease; don't think for a minute that what is your's is your's... they will enter your camper and tow your camper away if they feel like it. The management is out of control and must be stopped. Don't waste your time... the camping experience is not very family oriented. There are too many transients there. Go to another campground. A modern day campground this is not: they live by the motto "we are grand-fathered and don't have to meet current campground standards!" Police people run this place and have no respect for the rights of everyday people. Not much of a family atmosphere left. Camp at your own risk! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We visited this campground in May of 2003 and thought it was a great family oriented
place. They have nice sites with a small lake to swim and very clean. The Seasonal campsights were well taken care of and the people friendly. They had nice decks,
flower beds, and maintained campers. We decided to stop there overnight on the way back from Blue ridge in Late September and it looks like a war zone, the
camp is dirty, the Seasonal campers are all pulling out. I was told there was a large dissagreement between the owners and the Seasonal campers. I would not recomend it, there is some serious friction. We decided not to stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 1 / 10 ]
The road going to the campground is like a mine field . Also you can't swim unless your a
alligator. The restroom's are so nasty I would rather go in the woods. The washer & dryer don't work well at all. I would not recommand this place to anybody
that camps. I would rather camp at a truck stop. This is one camping family that will never camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 1 / 10 ]
Next time you visit this place, just ask them one question: Why did they have at least 15 SEASONAL campers pull out at the end of this season? Some of these people have been there for 20-plus years. When I see a change of such size in one year makes me wonder what is wrong with this picture. POOR MANAGEMENT and LACK OF RESPECT for their campers. There is nothing for kids to do after 6 o'clock. There are no activities for the family on the weekend except swimming. Things have taken a drastic turn for the worse in the last 2 years I have visited here. I would not recommend this place for a family outing. If you want somewhere to sleep and play dead, then this is for you. Also, labeling your seasonals as "transiants" is not a good thing either. These are the people that gaurantee your start up money for next year. Campers beware!! If you want a place with an attitude, this place is for you. If you want a family atmosphere, find somewhere else. I have dealt with this place for at least 7 years myself. The last 2 have been something to recon with. I am one of those people moving on. I am one of the so called Transiants pullin my camper back home. You see, I do not need the disrespect and attitude. There is something else out there bigger and better for my family. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Bottom Line: It's a dump, and nasty workers and nasty construction worker tenants, some need their mouths washed out! We camped here in a camper.
The park is conveniently located if you are enjoying the surrounding activities of Appomattox and the Museum of the Confederacy. However, the RV park is a no-frills park. There are no bathroom facilities or anything else for that matter. The park is very simple with three rows of 10 sites each that are all very level. We stayed here for several nights enjoying the local activities and visiting our daughter in school in Lynchburg. The RV Park was only half full and the owners allowed us to park a separate vehicle and pull behind trailer on the site next to ours. My only concern with the RV Park is that it is not fenced and while there were no security issues of any kind, I felt somewhat uncomfortable as I travel with four children. Also, there is some road noise from the nearby highway, but not as much as my children make. We paid extra for 2 people above the standard rate of 4. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is near the highway and easily accessed but plagued by road noise. Interior roads and sites are paved. Sites are generously sized, pull-through and level with grassy areas between sites. There is only minor shade, no landscaping and no privacy between sites. Basic utilities were good, wi-fi was reliable, AT&T phone reception was good but AT&T data was very weak. This works well as a stopover but no activities are available on site. The price reflects the Escapees discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We planned to visit the civil war museum and Appomattox Courthouse sites on our way to Virginia Beach and decided to try this location based on previous reviews. The sites are very open and level, and access into and out of the park was easy. There was quite a bit of road noise as VA Rt.24 was very close. This is not a monitored facility, so if you need help with your camp site you have to rely on cell phone contact. This also seems to be operated on the 'honor system' if you arrive after hours as far as payment is concerned. There are no facilities or recreational activities - it's a campground and nothing more. The owner only accepts cash or check - no credit cards are accepted. They do recognize Good Sam and other clubs so be sure to ask when you call for reservations. We will probably use this place again on our return trip home, and any other trip in this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is in a great location for visiting Appomattox and the area. The staff are very friendly. Spaces are level, wide, paved, and very long. I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Centrally located for exploring the rich heritage of the area. Plenty to do for history buffs. All pull through sites, full hook ups. Cable available for an extra charge in one of the four rows of sites. A fair amount of traffic going to and from the trailer court located behind the campground. No shower or bath facilities. If you need a base of operations while exploring and are self contained, I would recommend this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects nightly cost on a monthly rate. Nice park with great owners. Wide open access from highway and easy maneuvering once in park. All pull throughs, very level & paved. Each site has residential trash bin. This park is completely separate from the MHP at rear of property. No bath house or recreation of any kind on site, however, their location is excellent. Across the street from the new Museum of the Confederacy, and this RV Park's property borders the Appomattox Courthouse National Park. Great stay and would definitely return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is basically an open field next to an mobile home park. The sites are some what level and has paved pads. Plenty of room between sites. Wi-Fi was good. There is no store or facilities. We came here from DC to avoid Hurricane Sandy. Perfect place, no trees. This ia a good location to tour Lynchburg, Appomattox and surrounding areas. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very clean park with all long pull throughs and 50 amp service. It is a Passport America park, but they only allow discount for one day. It is the nearest RV park to the Appomattox Battlefield Park which starts about a mile down the road. The sites are very level hard gravel sites. There are no other facilities, but we camped there in a motorhome and did not need them. There are a few small trees, but for those of us with satellite dish's, that is a good thing. The lady in the office was very friendly and stayed until after 6:00 PM to check us in. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First off, don't let the name fool you: this is a real campground! The RV section IS NOT within the trailer park, but they are run by the same office. Even though this is a bare-bones, no amenities park, (not even bathrooms! Self-contained units only.) it is clean and easy to use. We didn't need a swimming pool, playgrounds, etc! That simplicity makes it cheaper than others in the area, we found it a nice place to stay for a few days. The place is well marked, easy to find, very easy entrance with paved roads through-out. Large pull-through sites with correctly located hook-ups. Good water pressure and power. Easy sat. TV reception: open field, no trees. Every site has it's own LARGE trash container on wheels. No problems. It is sort of next door and in front of the mobile home park, and alongside the highway, but we were not bothered at all by either one. Great location just down the road from Appomattox National Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park with friendly staff. Essentially the campground is a very large parking lot surrounded by large grassy area. Wi-Fi, cable TV, and full hookup were very satisfactory, and pull-through access very easy. The park's primary appeal is price (many discounts available) and proximity to this historic and lovely part of Virginia. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice place with level spots and full hook ups. It is completely separate from the Mobile Home Park and is right across the street from the new "Museum of the Confederacy". Rates are $33/night with $2 for cable and they offer discounts for Passport America, Good Sam & Escapees. No laundry facility, but friendly staff and convenient to historical sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has large pull through, gravel leveled sites with full hook ups. Nothing for additional amenities but the park is well maintained, offers close by shopping and sight seeing of the surrounding Appomattox historical area. Quiet and peaceful park. Would recommend and come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wide open pull through sites on soft blacktop. Somewhat level. No shade but lots of room. It's a couple miles drive to the Courthouse so we stopped before we camped. They will park you on the grass if you have an RV. Nothing fancy here just the basic FHU and very few RV's when we were here. We would stay here again if in the area. Rate reflects PA discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate included cable. Wi-Fi and cable were great. Level sites - little shade. Right on highway. Trailer park next to site had lots of traffic in and out. Didn't feel like a typical campground. We were going to stay two nights, but decided not to. Only good for a night's stop rather than a place you want to stay for awhile. You can't see the historic park from here, so don't know why the name. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Basic park with few amenities but REALLY GOOD WiFI! Passport America rate for first night. $32 per after that. We ended up staying four nights waiting for parts for a trailer repair. Lots to see and do in the area where we had only planned on spending one night: mostly Civil War history stuff. Convenient to Appomattox Court House National Park. Close to highway, but quiet. A fair number of long term residents in new looking trailers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a basic, self-service, RV park that has large easy access sites with full hook-ups. There are no trees so satellite service is easy to receive. The sites are gravel and they offer plenty of width for slide-outs and awnings. The park is conveniently located just a few miles down the road from Appomattox National Historical Park. As mentioned by others, there are no amenities at all. No bathrooms, nothing. There is WI-FI, but with no one around, you cannot get the password for the secured network. This was not posted where you check in so for reference just consider this a no WI-FI park. This in itself is not bad, but for a very basic, self service, park I felt it was somewhat overpriced for this area. Can't comment on the friendliness of the staff since there was nobody around. There was a slot to drop the envelope in with your money. I would stay here again if all of the other parks in the area were full. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little campground right off US460 in Appomattox. No amenities except full hookups but a very convenient place to stay to tour the historic area. Easy in – easy out sites. Cable is available only in the front row and is $2 extra. Mostly seasonals but no problems. Grass could have used some cutting. We would recommend this campground to those who don’t need all the frills. $17 is the Passport America rate with cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is just as advertised by other reviews. Since we are self contained, the lack of showers and restrooms was not an issue. Nice quiet park. Management was very helpful as we found out we had a reservation with the EXACT same name, but in West Texas. The manager of this park actually called the number we had to verify the discrepancy. She was very helpful. Since this was the 4th of July weekend, I was worried that we would not have a spot. The park here accommodated us. I would highly recommend this park for that reason. Only negative is that the voltage in the park is around 110 at the 3 sites I checked. I have a voltage booster, so it was not a problem for me. Mostly 5th wheels are here that look like they are fairly permanent residents. Great place for staying for a few days to visit the surrender place for the civil war. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park rates 10 in friendliness, cleanliness, vehicle maneuverability, and space in and between campsites. The rating is lowered because of a lack of amenities (no store, bathroom, playground, etc,) and an almost useless Wi-Fi. This is one of the best laid-out campgrounds we’ve seen. Easy access from highway and easy to enter and exit campsites. No obstacles such as trees and sign posts to maneuver around. It’s an open field with wide paved driving lanes, paved parking sites with plenty of space for toads or tow vehicles, and plenty of space between sites. Lamp posts at each site for light after dark. Front row has cable TV hookups. Some highway truck noise, but for us it was tolerable. We were parked close to the office and the Wi-Fi was almost always unusable. When available, the signal strength and speed varied widely and frequently and the connection frequently broke. We stayed 9 nights and would definitely come again. It’s a central location from which to visit historic and scenic sights, although some are about an hour’s drive away (Appomattox Court House National Historic Park [10-minute drive], Patrick Henry’s home, Thomas Jefferson’s second home [Poplar Forest], Natural Bridge, Peaks of Otter, etc.). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good place to stay if you are visiting the Appomattox Civil War site, but other than that, it is only suitable for an overnight stay. Price is right, but there are absolutely no amenities. In addition, they advertise that they have Wi-Fi service, but even though it is there, the bandwidth is so low that you cannot connect to the internet at all. If you really have to get on the internet, the visitor center in town has a free Wi-Fi connection that you can use inside or out in the parking lot. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is in an open field with the camp sites well away from the mobile homes. The roads and sites are paved and level. It is next to the Appomattox Courthouse historic military park. We were not bothered by the road noise but it is present. It is a good 1 or 2 day place to stay while visiting the tourist areas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a great no frills overnight stopping place. There are no restrooms, but the park is clean and has reasonable rates. $22/night with an additional $2/night discount for Good Sam members. Passport America members can stay for one night at a rate of $11/night and then must pay full rate for additional nights. Cable TV is available on the first row of sites and is $2/night extra. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good over night park. Rate is a Passport America rate. Only 1 mile from Appomattox Court House Civil War site. Long pull-thru with adequate space between sites. Very clean. Our site was very level. No rest rooms or showers. No WiFi. Very clean and neat with east access from highway. Close to town and services. A little highway noise but not bad. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We full-time. Our order of importance is: internet satellite ability; site large enough for 40' rig & toad; cellphone coverage. This place met them all. There is a nice mobile home park at the back of the property. The owner is a former motorhomer who had to give it up because of age, but still has the gleam in his eye. Nice people. There are no amenities - no swimming, no restroom, no clubhouse, no extended office hours, no gift shop, etc. The highway traffic noise is noticeable, but the location and open space made up for it. Apparently the Lynchburg area doesn't believe in RV parks! We've stayed at nearby Paradise Lake park back in 2000 - 2002 and had no problems (the reviews aren't great in here. We drove thru it just to see & it looked okay. We'd stay again, but they have too many trees. ) But these are the only parks within visiting distance to Lynchburg that we could find. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was hesitant about this park prior to arriving because normally an RV park located in a mobile home park usually leaves something to be desired, however this is the exception, it is 1 mile from the Appomattox Court House National Park entrance, the RV sites are located away from the mobile home sites (which are very neat, well laid out, paved streed, street lights, etc) the RV sites are FHU, plenty of space, are very neat and the owners are really good to work with, they keep a personal hands on approach to everything, the owner gives you his cell phone number in case you need
any help. We spent 3 days here in a 5th wheel in 2003, (In overflow because the 10 regular sites were full) Overflow had FHU, but located away from the other sites. No rest rooms or showers, Would come back We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
