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

Great campground! Level gravel sites, well spaced, and an incredible value. We stayed in B loop, which had electric (for an additional $5/night), but no water. Big fire pits with swing grills and even hanging arm for pots or kettle. Each site has a bear-proof food storage locker, which seems to have successfully deterred bears from bothering to come around. Camp hosts rake each site after departure, so new arriving campers are welcomed to a very neat, evenly raked gravel site. A loop is more hilly and woodsy, but mostly tents and the smallest of RVs. C loop is reservation only, and is the most wide open and treeless. B loop FCFS. Absolutely no Verizon signal. Park rangers make very frequent "compliance runs", so don't even think about breaking any rules. (They are extremely friendly and helpful, however.) The "alcohol prohibited" signs were not notices, but were posted as "warnings". Very strict and intimidating for those of us who enjoy a cold beer after a hike or glass of wine with dinner. (But that is a statewide park rule, not just here). We will definitely return to this lovely campground. - Libre RV

This is a wonderful National Forest Campground in a little valley deep in the mountains. The campsites are level and well kept up. There is 50 amp electric service, but no water or sewer hookups. Some campsites are in the open, and in these satellite TV is available. There is a nice fireplace and picnic table at each site. There is fishing in the two lakes in the campground, as well as swimming in one of the lakes. The campground is a few miles from any sizable town, so be sure to take enough groceries to last during your stay. - hoppytoad

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

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. - Rob&Terri

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! - scoby75

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

This is another example of the high quality of Virginia State Parks. The Park is clean and well maintained. The park host was friendly and very helpful coordinating a quick repair to the site 50 amp breaker with park maintenance. The bathrooms were spotless with modern toilet facilities including a laundromat. There is a new visitor center with daily activities. Pull through sites and back-in sites with 50/30/20 amp service are available. Dump station is located at the park entrance with easy access. We had no problem navigating our 38 foot MH through the access roads and park roads. There is no WiFI, no TV reception and could not get satellite reception. Verizon had 2 bars. The main attraction is James River access that offers fishing, kayaking and boating. The park has excellent access with boat ramp. - Russ60

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

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

This campground is basically an open lot beside the road. There are a few trees but not many. The sites are level and big enough for comfort. Lots of worker type seasonal residents. Pretty significant road noise. Very convenient to the town of Appomattox and the Confederate Museum. - mary mcmoo
