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

Was a very quiet campground even though there was a lot of traveling workers. Owners and staff very helpful. Had and issue with my camper and they stayed open late to make sure I had everything needed to get set up. The only downfall is there wasn't any fish in the ponds. - Trukguy

I wanted to share important information to anyone considering this campground. As a positive, the sites are a good size, the views are nice, and the playground is shaded. It's important to remember that the WiFi that they say they have is only available inside the camping store which is away from any actual site. So you might as well say there is no WiFi. The pool is nice and even partly shaded in the afternoons, but expect to carry your camping chairs with you, as there is not a single chair available to sit in by the pool, which I thought was very odd. The bathhouse has 2 toilets and two showers, which were clean but no normal sized human can fit in the toilet stall with the door closed, so be willing to use it with the door open for people to see you. Our site had a brick pad so there was no need for our rug which was nice, but there was quite a bit of mud on one side and I noticed that most all of the sites had the same run off problem. I think they could very easily make some changes that would better please their customers in the future, so I hope they will. - FFJEN32

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

Nice larger VA State Park with about 130 sites. We went here on a weekend and it is a popular park. If you reserve a 40' unassigned site come early on Friday to get the best sites. I showed up at 2 pm and had a pretty good selection to choose from but they really started rolling in about 4 pm. There is no early check in fee. We were in site 4 which is a pull through. It was mostly shaded and fairly private. As stated in other reviews all the shade is in the front loop. The back loop is pretty much all sun. One of the features I really like but didn't need this trip was the overflow parking arrangement. In most campground the overflow parking is a bunch of spaces in one location and if you are close good but if not .... This park has numerous overflow parking areas with just a few spots in each site. Makes it much more likely you will be close to one if needed. The camp store is very small but you are not too far from shopping in town. Nice long and narrow lake. There is paddle boat, canoe and kayak rentals. Bait is sold at the boat rental but if you need it get it the night you get there. The boat rental shop does not open until 10. A little late in my opinion. Overall one of my favorite state parks. If you like water sports you will like it too. I forgot to mention that there is a water park with slides. I didn't use it as I spent the weekend in my kayak but entrance is included with your camping fee. - Joe J

This is a very large and well-manicured state park. The terrain is rolling. The back-in 30amp sites are less shaded than others and a satellite signal from a roof mounted dish is obtainable from many of them. Verizon signal okay. Sites are well spaced with privacy from tall trees and shrubs. The dump station was well maintained Gate and check-in staff offered a pleasant greeting. Rate above includes $35 non-resident Virginian for w&e and $5 for reservation fee (even if a site is obtained same day at the park). There is also sales tax. A nice getaway. Want to visit the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum in the park on my next visit. - SunStar203

Powhatan State Park is relatively new, and as a result is a very nice place to camp. Literally, everything is new: New picnic table, new fire pit, new landscape timbers framing the driveway, new bathrooms, etc. It is pretty and in an area of forest. Most sites have a lot of trees, but there are a few that are mostly open. There were a lot of sites available when we visited. They let you choose your site, even if you made a reservation which we liked. The loop road is fresh asphalt and the sites are crushed gravel. There are several stairways down to the river with wooden chutes for sliding your canoe or kayak down to the water. Unfortunately, the banks of the river are very steep so the only place to access the river from the state park is on the stairs. This means no places for fishing, unless of course you do so from your canoe or kayak. We had good cell service and were able to get satellite reception from our roof mounted unit. There are some hiking trails, but the area is not too exciting for hiking really. Nice place to stay, fresh clean and new. Nice dump station. No sewer connections. - Stax

This is a wonderful small campground surrounded by the Cumberland State Forest. Because it's surrounded by a state forest, it's very secluded. The only place to go if you've forgotten something is a small gas station/convenience store that's five or so minutes away. They have a great small lake with boats that can be rented, plus an archery range. The sites are rather small and tight. Most were clearly originally designed for tent campers. There are only a handful that are suitable for travel trailers, and only a few that can handle a larger rig. Also, I would never try to get a larger rig into this campground because the turns are very, very tight. Our campsite was the only one in the park that was paved. All of the rest are a mix of dirt and gravel. The bathrooms were clean enough, but not as clean as other state parks we've visited. Our only major complaint about the campground were our extremely loud neighbors (barking dog, ridiculously loud music, etc.) but rude visitors aren't the fault of the campground, and the camp host did try to control them as best he could. You can't fully control rude people except to remove them, and I didn't expect that. We would definitely come back here, as we know that 99% of our fellow campers are good and respectful people. - SteveMM

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

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
