Great staff and excellent facilities. Gravel site was sloped and difficult to level. Beautiful, well maintained grounds. We'll be back. - DDaniel38

Just enough trees by the campsites to break up the heat of the sun, and not so many as to be in the way. The office is about centrally located in the campground, where there is a large pond that is open for swimming, with a water slide and a fountain out in the pond. Not far from the office is a swimming pool. Some of the many sites are more level than others, all are gravel. Most look like they are pretty good side to side, and front to back is easily corrected. All have fire rings and picnic tables. There is a large pavilion, and several smaller ones. The grounds are surrounded by woods. On summer nights there are fireflys everywhere. It's a very quiet and peaceful place at night. The train track is an active one and we can hear the whistles at night, but, it's not really loud.
Nice place, we hated to leave. - Jimal

We chose this campground as it was close by to a wedding we were attending. Road from Hwy 460 to campground is very rough and patched with loose gravel. We tow with a dolly and the ramps scraped the road when going over the railroad tracks.
Upon registering at the office, which is pretty far down in the campground, we were given site #9 and were told we would have to go totally around the park back close to the entrance, go around the very back row of a section in order to pull straight into our site -- they said the turns were too close for a camper to get into the site any other way. Upon following their directions to the campsite, the tree branches on the back row were so very low, they severely scraped the roof of our motorhome to the point we were afraid we would be missing air conditioners, antennas, etc. Hubby climbed up the ladder on the back of the MH and did not find any obvious damage, but I'm still not so sure that there isn't something wrong up there.
The campground is filled with permanent campers and we have no real problem with that as long as it wasn't loud. Our site was close to the entrance/exit so we were far away from the bulk of the permanent rv's. - gegllwy

This is a no frills RV Park. It is right off of Hwy 460 so easy to get to. All sites are pull through so perfect for an overnight stop without having to unhook a tow vehicle. Check in was fast and friendly. Sites are gravel and a little unlevel, with a wider than normal strip of grass. No picnic table or fire ring.50amp and good water pressure. No amenities other than WiFi that worked well and our Verizon signal was strong. Road noise was not bad at night. We paid $40 a night with no discounts offered. We stayed May 25 -29, 2017. You are only minutes from the Appomattox Court House National Park and other historical places. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Like the name says, it is a RV Park not a resort or campground, paved roads and 30 paved level sites with grass and good utilities. No pool, no showers, no RR, no store, no laundry or playground. Close to Confederate Museum and historical Appomattox Courthouse National Park. All sites open sky for satellite. Good cell, strong free wi fi in site C-11. Good base to visit area but not a good value. Park three fourths empty in late July weekend. Recommend staying 2 nites to visit Nat'l park and museum in one full day. One mile to town and Walmart. Don't stay in site 1 thru 10 as on busy entrance road to MHP. Staff helpful and friendly. - Pepper Dan

This is an Escapees Park; they do not allow discounts the week before or of a holiday. We were here the week of the 4th of July. The value of this park is bad. No pool, no cable. It even lacks a picnic table. They claim to have wifi, we hooked up but that was it. We were here four night and could not use the wifi. The wifi is non-existent. Being close to the freeway, there was some highway noise. All sites are pull-through; some are shaded. There are some residents in the park. For the most part, they are well-maintained. The park is close to the National Park; the Museum of the Confederacy is right across the street. We were here in a 40' fifth-wheel. - oldbluejay

Great location to camp for visiting Appomattox National Park Civil War sites. Couldn't reach park by phone, so just took a chance that sites were available. Registration after hours was on the honor system. Park was located about 6 miles from Hwy. 24 main road and 13 miles from the National Park, though it seemed much longer while traveling through the national forest to reach the campground. Very quiet, relaxing and secluded with only one other camper in sight. Site was fairly level with table and fire ring. Firewood was most reasonable price we've seen (also on honor system), but weather was way too warm for a campfire or to enjoy the outdoors. Restrooms and showers were convenient and looked clean though we did not use them. No cell service in the park, except on a hill close to the office if you are lucky. No cable, and too many surrounding trees to get satellite. Swimming in the lake was available and seemed to be a popular place. Would camp here again if in the area. It would be beautiful in the Spring with the Red Buds blooming. - Texas E-S

This park is located about 5 miles off of Rt 24 down some very narrow roads through the state forest. Just have to take it slow when traffic is coming toward you. Fortunately there isn't much traffic. The campground area is on rolling land and there was little effort to level the sites when they were paved which makes it difficult to level the RV. Our site (#25) was one of the leveler ones but still required us to use several leveling blocks on the rear. One plus is all the trees that provide wondeful shade. The bath house was clean but could use a little touching up with some paint. There is a nice lake for swimming, non-power boating and fishing. - MarkandMarty

Huge lake almost circles this state Park. There are 2 campgrounds, well in the trees. Because of the land topography, some are just not level...but many pretty good. After March 17, 2017, the smaller campground will take reservations per spot. You cannot see the lake from the camping spots, but it is very close. We kayaked the day away. There were some small boats with trolling motors with people fishing. There is a beach...kid friendly. Wal-Mart about 15 minutes away...easy to stop and enjoy some history along the way. - YFF

Campground was great, as always, but the volunteer hosts were confusing, the one in C Loop wasn't even on site more than a few hours the entire time we were there, driving a company truck, appeared to be a local using the site for some personal reason. Heard several negative comments to do with the volunteers,from other campers who've been coming here for many years. All in all the Campground is still one of our most favorite places. - bukhrn

Exceptional campground. Clean showers, clean flush toilets and a clean site. Full electrical. No Verizon. Water is also not at the campsite but is available between the two large parking areas. (Or, if you're there for a long stay, you may need to disconnect to refill water, as you would if you need to dump.) Only C loop is reservable (17 sites and one for a host). This is relatively open with few trees, and sites are level. B Loop has 12 first come, first serve sites with electrical. Similar to C, but a few more trees. A loop is non-reservable, non-electric, and posted for no RVs over 28 feet. Less level and many tight turns and short sites. Clearly designed for tents, small trailers, camper vans, etc. This is clearly a very popular site with locals. Mid week early April in cold weather the C loop was fully booked, and only a few sites were available in the nonreservable B loop. - OlderGoat

As always this jewel is clean, well maintained, with clean bathrooms & showers.
C loop has electric hookups only, but there is a water fill, & dump station.
A & B loops are first come first served, but A loop is for tents & small units like pop ups. There are two lakes for fishing & swimming, with a nice beach area, and a playground. - bukhrn

First of all, let me say this review in no way reflects the employees at this park, they were exemplary and we saw them working hard in oppressive August heat.
That said, we really wanted to love this park, we've camped there twice and both times had pretty much the same experience. We have a 40ft Fifth wheel that is all-electric and uses 50amp service. We knew going in the park only had 30amp so we were ready to adjust accordingly. However, the 30amp at site 61 was not true "30 amp" Our PMS service would only allow us to run 1 ac and absolutely nothing else, so when checked we were actually running 27 amps. To run the microwave or anything we would have to shut down the ac. In August, unacceptable. We've run 30amp plenty of times and been capable of running more than just an ac.
Thousand Trails has the bones of many beautiful parks in their system if they could see fit to invest in electrical upgrades and road upgrades. Along with the electric, the road was literally a dust bowl, the gravel used evidently crushes to a white powdery substance that even at the 5mph speed limit leaves a cloud of dust and a covering of white over all your equipment. This should not be so. No one wants to have their units and vehicles covered with so much dust you cannot see out of the windshields!
Again, I know no park is perfect, and even with the dust we so want to love this park, it is a beautiful setting, lake, pool..etc. and not that far from many attractions, Lynchburg, Appomatox, etc. We probably will not return due to the electrical issues in the park. Sadly. - buffy

Nice rural park as others have said. Nearly all full hook up sites and all sites are 30 amps only. Sites have gravel and near all look level, plus nearly every site has good shade cover. Nice big pond and walking trails around the pond, all if so wish you can drive around. Plenty of activities over the weekends we were here. Only small problem we had is the ranger seemed to know less than we did when we checked in, and this was our first time at this park. - M5Adventures

This is an older park in a rural setting. The lake is available for swimming but I wouldn't venture into it due to the quality of the water. This lake needs some serious attention. The interior roadways are all gravel and some are rutted due to erosion. The sites are also gravel and not very level. When we were here the store was not open. Other than at check-in we never saw any staff on the grounds. There were no planned activities during the middle of the week and little on the weekend. The pool was well used but again no staff present. There was a hot tub as well. We went sightseeing in the surrounding area and found the location acceptable. Verizon is borderline 4g and there are few sites that had DirecTV access due to the large trees. A number of sites in all the loops had the power boxes covered. We assumed these were inoperative. Unlike most Thousand Trails/Encore parks there is a high percentage of available sites for travelers. - BobWW

The only possible improvement might be a pool (and sewer on sites), but sites are large, private and fairly level, Park staff are friendly and knowledgeable, other campers were for the most part considerate. Rangers patrol frequently (which I like). We're absolutely going back! - Central Virginia

Peaceful campground on the James River. We spent a weekend to go hiking and rent a canoe for a 6 mile trip down the James River. This park offers a lot of trails for hiking, 3 ponds for fishing and canoe, kayak, tube rentals. For camping it has 2 primitive campgrounds (one on a pond the other on the river), 1 RV campground (water and electric only) were we stayed and a horse campground.
Our site was mostly shaded and most all the sites were separated and private. Thin woods between each site. We had a great time and will go back again. - Joe J

We stay here at least two times per year-the first trip of the season and the last with sometimes a couple thrown in during the summer. It is a great campground with roomy wooded sites and excellent restrooms/showers. - pinesman
