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

Love this park. Well maintained, clean. There are two sections to the park- an older and a newer section. Newer section more accommodating for big rigs. Lots of space between campsites, giving you some privacy Playground for children but it is located in direct sunlight so mostly used in late afternoon or evening. Lots of trails for hiking and biking. They needed a little mowing while we were there. Office staff very nice. Camp Hosts extremely helpful and friendly, and they kept the park very clean. Amphitheater where they had a free concert. Children's splash park, and pool. Boats to rent. Some shade in the newer section. The older section is very well shaded. - Campn42

Stayed in a gravel back in spot with lots of room. Had electric and water but no sewer. This was OK for we were only staying a couple of nights. Staff was friendly and helpful and helped me park. - BobsFixIt

Several long level paved pull through sites for the traveler. Park is mostly long term combination of workers and local military. Mostly well kept. Immaculate bathhouse. Pool looked inviting, but we did not use. Small fishing lake, where our Golden Retriever enjoyed a swim. Convenient to I85, just south of Petersburg. Worked well for us for an overnight, we would probably return. - 2hams

Our first visit and an unexpected pleasure. Was a bit concerned as no reservation confirmation was received (later learned that was their norm), but from our arrival all concerns were put to rest. Again, this was an overnight stop for us, but it had everything a family with children would want. Nice large pool, fishing pond, large grass play space and a playground for the younger set. Our pull-thru site was long, level and paved. Office featured a well stocked store and very friendly and helpful staff. Great find. - Dunwoodyradio

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

This a small self-contained only park is on the front end of a mobile home park screened by trees. The office has a night registration board, mail slot was hidden behind the board, no way to tell if an empty site was reserved. Other than a small playground, there are no amenities here other than site hookups. There is road noise from Rt 1 but it quiets down at night and the very bright security light would make those staying closest to the office think that a UFO is about to beam them up. No cable, but local OTA channels are good with the standard antenna. Most sites have clear satellite access. Most are level pull throughs. The voltage may drop on a warm sunny day when they have a full house. Good place to stay for a few nights if visiting the area. - Trailbuddy

We had a pull-through, but found that the sewer connection was at the back of the site. It was either go buy more sewer house or unhook the toad, so we unhooked the toad. No problems hooking up the water or electric. The road and sites were gravel and with all the rain that day, there were puddles, especially around the sewer connection. The site was level. There was no cable TV, but antenna and satellite worked fine. The Wi-Fi was spotty, even using a booster. There is no one in the office over the weekend, and you register on the weekends under the porch, near the office door. - Bbtj

The staff here is always very friendly and helpful.
Out pull-thru site (full hook-ups) was almost perfectly level so we didn't bother leveling for a one-night stay (although we stayed a second night because of the hurricane).
A free waffle breakfast is offered every day but Thursday, when a free dinner of hot dogs,beans, etc is offered.
Cable TV was fine as was the WI-FI.
I-95 is very close but we just ran our floor fan at night to cover outside noise. - dhaney1944

My price included tax and discount. A very popular place with extensive amenities. Upon entry I was greeted by friendly staff, and escorted to my back-in site. Main roads paved, gravel, level sites. Offered free Bingo, and waffles in the morning. This is a great place for transients, and those who may want to visit Richmond. I just stayed 1 night and did not check everything they offer. Sites are fairly close together, but not cramped. Air Park Road is being realigned, but GPS will get you to the entrance. Park is close to I-95, and there is highway noise outside. I did not find this a problem in my coach. Definitely will stay here again. - John_SC

This was the second time we have stayed here while in the Richmond area. It is very convenient to downtown Richmond as well as surrounding stores and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again, and have always found it to be clean and well-maintained. They sell propane on the premises. - Edistobob

South 40 RV Park is a nice place to stay for someone traveling through or even for a week or so. It is close to I-95, and easy to get to from exit 41. There is Civil War stuff to see not too far away. Just up Rt. 301 is shopping, and many restaurants. The facilities are old, but, clean and well kept. The water is good. It is fairly quiet, and peaceful. I heard a train far away, and some traffic noise at night, but it was not disturbing at all. - Jimal

This is a decent RV park. They do have shaded lots, which is a huge plus. They have ample laundry facilities and a nice pool. There is no pavement, which makes it hard to walk your dog after a rain and them not get dirty. It's in a decent location (about 15 minutes from shopping and the gym). We chose to stay there because it's close to where my husband was working. There is an awesome Mexican restaurant a few exits up (towards Colonial Heights) which is fantastic! The speed limit is strictly enforced - 5 mph. The only thing I didn't like was the low water pressure and the WiFi signal wasn't strong even with a range extender. Other than that it's a quiet RV park in a safe area. - Erin G

We were looking for a quick 2-night stop near Richmond as we traveled through the area. Based on other reviews, we had prepared ourselves for the worst. In fact, it's those reviews that encourage me to write this review. This place isn't as bad as it's made out to be- in fact, I kind of like it here. Staff can make or break a place; the staff here has been super friendly and welcoming.
We are in A-8 which is the first row in the park. It's a 50-amp spot and a 70' pull-through site. We have a beautiful shade tree (which is trimmed nicely back so that it doesn't brush our camper). Side to side, the site is fairly level. Front to back is sloped pretty heavily to the rear- we can manage it in a trailer (42' fifth wheel), but I could see this being an issue with some motorhomes. Though, we have had motorhome neighbors on either side of us coming and going. My other complaint for the campsite, is the number of ant hills around it. We carry and sprayed bug killer as we setup and haven't had issues (thanks FL for that lesson). Our picnic table seemed to be freshly painted and was in good repair. Their wifi worked, but was slow. Verizon and AT&T service are good. We hear some highway noise when outside, but not bad. There have been little flashes of power going off; just for a moment each time (resets clocks). Water pressure is good.
These front sites are well kept, mowed, and utilities are about midway. The lake IS overgrown with lily pads, but it looks pretty. The back sites seem pretty cozy and are mostly filled with seasonal/annual residents but they're generally well kept. There are a set of sites under the trees that could be really nice. Part of it is storage with some very dilapidated units. And then there seem to be some not so well marked sites. There are a few cabins that looked well-kept from the outside.
Each day that we've been here, we have noticed them doing something. The last couple of days, it has been painting picnic tables and office. - LearnToRV
