We were visiting family in the area and needed a place to stay. This was the only campground we could find nearby that was open. When we arrived around 1 in the afternoon, there was a note on the office door that no one was available to call a phone number. We called the number and were told to pick a site that the owner would return after 4 in the afternoon. We drove around the campground where there were large trees and could not figure out where each campsite began and ended or the amenities at the site. We finally parked by the office and walked around to find a campsite. We discovered that they had a paved area where we could park for the night. We pulled into one of the sites, unhooked the RV, and started setting up. The electrical did not work. We had to hook everything up again and try and different site. The second site did have electric, water, and sewer. These sites were in an open parking lot with no trees. When the owner finally came by, she did not have change for cash so she only charged us $30 instead of the usual $35. She told us her husband died in 2008 and she was trying to run the campground alone. It appears that there has been very little maintenance in many years.
We will NOT stay here again. - Athens4me

Older park not in great shape, but only one in the area open all year. They have seasonals on the wooded sites; we were there only for a night, so they put is in the big gravel lot where you park bumper to bumper with other units and there is very little space in between. But it was winter & wet and we did not get stuck! We would have been more disappointed if we had not read the reviews first, but very little choice in the area for winter! - chasing60

I was not informed over the phone that cell phones do not work anywhere in the area nor is there a public payphone or internet. There is a lot of alcohol present. The facilities are dirty and in disrepair. The showers clog up. People are charged for use of things including pool which is dirty and is only a plastic lined pool. The sewage hook ups do not properly work and you are charged to dump at dumping station. There are long term campers that are loud 24 hours a day. Refunds are not given. - Dawn-Michelle

We had an extended stay at Cozy Acres while moving between Blacksburg and Chesterfield. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. No loud parties or no rude neighbors, everyone we met were friendly. At 10:00 PM the place was quiet and peaceful. The only downside was the Wi-Fi service, which was only available near the office. - Bburgbrewer

We drove all day from Pennsylvania to get to this place west of Richmond, VA because the comments were good on various websites. We don't select RV parks based on amenities like fishing, swimming, and photos of kids eating ice cream. Our most important criteria is the condition and positioning of the pad we request and are assigned. Here we requested a site clear of trees so our satellite dish would work and were assured from the site we were assigned that it would. Not so. The trees were too dense and too tall. Perhaps once upon a time when the trees were smaller satellite reception was possible, but not now. There were plenty of open pads and I suppose we could of have moved around until we found one with a clear view to the SW, but it had been a long day.
The roads are all dusty gravel and the pads dirt. The pads once had gravel but it is long gone, and all pads we saw would be gooey mud in rain or even days after rain. Our pad was dry, but there was evidence that it had flooded recently.
On the positive, the staff was friendly and the place clean and green. We intended to stay 2-3 days, but given the condition of the park we left the next morning. - Joe67

We were really looking for a site in Shenandoah National Park but everything was full. This was the only site we could find anywhere around for Memorial Day weekend. It seemed that there were a lot of groups here and we were just a single family. I guess if you were in one of the "groups" it would be great. - pinesman

My family has tent camped at this park many times, and this was the first outing with our new-to-us hybrid travel trailer. We picked a pull-through site to avoid the stress of backing in, but plenty of the non-pull-through sites would work for different size travel trailers. Keep in mind that at this park (and most VA state parks) you reserve a TYPE of site, and then pick the site when you get there from what is available. We picked site #10, and loved it.
It's a wonderful and quiet park with mature trees all around. Our site was more or less level, and was in good shape. There's plenty to do at the park. Swift Creek is great for canoeing or fishing, and the water park is good if you have young kids. Unfortunately, though, many of the locals use it as their public pool, so you will encounter some sketchy individuals at times. We prefer to camp here in the spring or fall, when the pool isn't open. This will definitely be our go-to park for a quick weekend getaway. - SteveMM

Like most state park campgrounds Pocahontas offers large sites. The entire park could be explored with many hiking trails and watercraft. Unfortunately the CCC museum is closed on weekdays at this time of year so we missed that feature. We were able to hike on some of the trails. It's an excellent state park. - rvrose

Very nice state park near Richmond and Petersburg. The park was full so reservations are recommended. Long pull-throughs were easy to manage. A very popular place to camp. - slay

Very friendly staff. Unfortunately it was a very tight campground. Each campground there seemed to be designed by someone who was afraid to use space. Lots of sites were not long enough for your truck and camper...and we just have a 16'. Water and electrical hook ups were at the head of the site. Difficult when you have very little length to start with. Very, very few pull throughs. If you are in to tent camping, it would be very easy. Although your neighbors are close, regardless. The lake was beautiful and the fishing seemed to be good. The boat launch site/parking was once again...tight. There are good, easy hiking trails and we saw some beautiful cabins. Cabins might be the way to go! - YFF

This is a nice small park inside of the Cumberland State Forest. The spots are small and the 35 foot limit includes any tow vehicles. The spots we had were not too level, but OK. Electric and Water but no Sewer.
Everything was clean and well maintained. The rangers were nice and the roads are good.
The trails are great for walking around the park. They go all the way around the lake and then some.
There is a swimming "beach" on the lake that we did not use, and an archery range that we did not use too. - The Bees

Pleasant small park on a small to medium lake. They have many more options for tent campers than for RVs. There are only 9 sites available for RVs and they are only 35 foot long. We camped in a 24 travel trailer and had no problem but it may have been a bit tight in a larger RV. There are a few pull through sites that had larger 5th wheels in them. The lake is beautiful and they have a guarded swimming area. There is fishing sites and trails most of the way around the lake. Paddle boat, canoe and kayak rentals are available. Park is set in the middle of Cumberland State Forest with lots of trails to hike. - Joe J

First time at Twin Lakes State Park. Check in was nice, go pick your site and let them know the number. It's slightly annoying, though, how the check in procedures vary from state park, to state park. This one wanted both vehicles license plate numbers, and one of the vehicles was not there yet. Just was at First Landing SP, and they could care less. Anyhoo.. This campground is very much suited to trailers, as the sites are very well maintained gravel. Very tight, though, so watch out if you are on the larger scale. We did have a tent, and choose E/W, so it was a bit difficult with the tent stakes and the gravel, but there is a separate tent area if you want. Sites were a decent size, but seemed close together with no foliage between. Bath house was probably the cleanest I have ever seen, maybe better than Disney. The beach sand area was raked and and cleaned nightly. There is a seasonal concessions, again clean and friendly. Paddle boats and canoes for rent. All in all, a very enjoyable three days. If we are in the area again, we'll be back! - laurafergie

Agree with previous posts, This is a very tight campground with only a few big rig sites, I would say only 4 can fit 35 and larger. Site 26 is the biggest and has a view of the lake. The dump station is in a strange place, you have to circle around to get to it, but I was able to swing wide enough to make the turn. Some of the sites are only big enough for a tent and 1 vehicle. All in all this is a very nice campground, nice and quiet. - kenn209

This is a small but good State Park Campground. It is tight, but with care a good driver will be able to get around. The park has designated "Big Rig" sites. The sites are level gravel and it very good condition. We used site 26 for our 37 foot 5th wheel. Got in with no problem. The facilities are good and the recreation opportunities are great. They have a nice beach and lots of hiking trails. - Paul M. Kitchen
