6 Parks near Chesterfield, Virginia
Oct 2016 - $37.00
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

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

We really appreciate the Americamps. We have stayed there many times when visiting family in Richmond. Now that we live in Richmond we use them to prep the coach prior to our long trips. We move the coach from our storage location to Americamps for a couple of days to get it ready for travel. They are just so nice and accommodating. The RV park is convenient for I-95 travelers, clean and well maintained. It is a bit pricey but it is really the only nice alternative in the immediate area. - Allure470

We have stayed here on many occasions, generally for the first night out and last night before returning home on north/south trips. The staff is friendly, campground clean and convenient to I-95. We were pleasantly surprised on arriving to discover they were hosting a "Spanish" New Year's Eve dinner. Also, love the morning Pancake/waffle breakfasts! We will continue to return. - dandd

This was just an overnight stay for us. Sites are quite close but a pull through site accommodated our 40 foot RV with toad. Restrooms and showers are very clean. Nice dog park.
Easy access from main highway but traffic noise at night could be an issue.
The office and community buildings were spotless! Staff pleasant and eager to provide assistance.
The free waffle breakfast is fantastic! Juice, Keurig coffee cups, tea, hot cocoa and fruit cocktail complement the fresh-made Belgian-style waffles.
Grounds are well groomed. - Lab Lovers

We actually left the rv here for 3 weeks while we went on vacation. The staff looked after everything and we had a very good experience before we left and when we returned. This is the second time we stayed at this facility and have been very happy. - Al and Anne-Marie

We stayed here in a 36' 5th wheel w/3 slides and a F-350 DRW truck. Gravel, FHU, pull-thru site was adequate size for both vehicles with good space between campsites. Interior roads are dirt and somewhat narrow but we were able to navigate and park with no problems. Picnic table and fire ring at sites. Did not use the restrooms/showers but the ladies room appeared clean. Decent laundry room. Most sites are heavily wooded. Our site (#A-9) had good reception for DirecTV roof mounted satellite and Verizon WiFi and cell phone. Did not use park cable or WiFi. Close to I-95; park was quiet with very little traffic noise. We would stay here again when in the area. - Moneypenny

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
