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. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here before while visiting family in Richmond. It's not necessarily the most convenient to our family but it feels safe and for the most part quiet. It is much nicer than any of the privately owned RV parks - of which there are very few anyway. We stayed in one of the pull thrus in the back section with 50 amp service and water. There is a dump available on site near the front. The site was fairly long and level. We had enough room for our 45 foot motorhome and the car if we parked it at an angle. It's a bit pricey for water and electric but we will return again. BTW - there is a Virginia State club you can join for free. You can earn free nights at all state campgrounds. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My stay here was more of a stop over than a destination visit. I am traveling the central east coast this summer and booked my stay in advance to insure a place to park my fifth wheel during the holiday weekend. The park was full with mostly family's enjoying the holiday.

I found the park to be very nice with privacy and loss of trees, which I enjoy. There is a laundry room here with three washers and dryers, a plus for s state park, and they were in good condition. Also the park has a pool and kayak rentals available for campers. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful State Park. Sites are not assigned ahead of time but on arrival we were given a list of sites that we would be 'allowed' to camp in given our rig size - 40 foot motorhome. Our tag was color coded and we were told to notify the office by phone once we settled in. The sites available to us were all pull thrus. We would have preferred one of the back-ins that were more open and would have worked better with our satellite dish. All that being said, we had a wonderful week here. Site was spacious, 50 amp power worked flawlessly and the park laundry was clean and reasonably priced. Park is convenient to both Richmond and Petersburg which are filled with history. This was a second visit for us and we would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

Great service from park employees, well maintained facilities, very nice water park. The park is in a wooded area with wildlife associated with "the woods." Take precautions regarding insects and mice. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

Virginia has some wonderful state parks but they are way over priced. $42 for a site with just water and electric is way too expensive. No amenities were open while we were there. Maintenance seems to be lacking as the pads for the picnic tables were overgrown with grass. We will now only stay here as a one night stopover. Too bad because we loved Virginia State Parks. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Most sites were shady. We had a site up close to the front which was in the woods. Deer frequently walked through. A level site was rare but we didn't have any trouble. Staff was friendly. Even though near Richmond, we were surprised that the campground was so quiet. Very relaxing. The restrooms were clean. The showers were individual rooms with locks. Many of these locks didn't work so you had to hunt a bit. We would stay in this clean campground again. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a gorgeous park this is! The sites are very well separated from each other and Virginia's system is that you get to choose your site after you check in. The only drawback is that many sites are not level which is more of a concern for motor homes than for trailers. The hiking around the park is excellent. Don't miss the CCC museum and the delightful 85 year old ranger posted there! We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

We were in this park 2 weeks and would have stayed longer if it hadn't been for park policies limiting your stay to 14 days in a 30 day period. The restrooms, showers, and laundry rooms were clean and park hosts friendly. We enjoyed the well maintained bike trails as well. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fabulous campground. Well designed with huge sites nestled among tall trees. Surprisingly, many of the sites have satellite access. No sewer but good dump station at park entrance. You can make a reservation online or by phone. They will not assign you a site until you get there. You check-in and pick out the site you want. We were there for a week and had no trouble getting a nice site because we arrived on Wednesday. The park was full by Friday night. Weekends fill up in summer. So if you want a good site in the summer you might want to make a reservation and get there Friday morning. Will stay here again. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

I really liked this park. It was spacious, has lots of biking/hiking trails and was big rig friendly. My site was 86, level, sites 88, 92 and 95-98 look like nice, private sites as well. There is a dump station (2 can dump at once). They allowed fires when I was there and the staff was quite friendly, helpful. I will come back here again, likely pre-registering as they say it gets busy once the pool was open. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

We were very happy to find this state park! The RV park options in the Richmond area are very limited. We arrived after hours for our first night. We unhooked the tow vehicle and drove around looking at spots. Make sure to check out the front and back sections. The front sections appear older and less level than the ones in the back. We found some long, wide, private pull-throughs in the back. Most sites, if not all, include a small camping area as well. The interior roads are good, and there are no obstacles such as overhanging tree branches. It is, for the most part, very quiet. There seemed to be some kind of event happening every weekend. The front desk staff is helpful and efficient. The downside is no WI-FI. Verizon worked fairly well, and we were able to get satellite. We stayed for 14 days and will most definitely be back. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first time staying at Pocahontas State Park so we decided to try out the park from a Wednesday to Sunday stay (5 days ). We got there at 4pm and was able to pick a site and call the office to let them know which site we chose. We picked site #118, which is a back-in site. I have a 30ft travel trailer and was very easy to back into our spot on the first try. The spot was level and very spacious. The campground is laid out in two sections with both of them having pull-thrus and back-in spots. They offer firewood for $5 a bundle of 6 pieces near the bath house in the second section. They also have a camp store in the same section that has ice and other goodies. This campground is ideal for pop-ups all the way up to motorhomes. This park has two pools with water slides and a separate kiddy splash zone with lifeguards. Staying at the campground gets you free passes to the pool for everyday you camp. Otherwise, it's cost money for the public to use. The park had scheduled events like S'mores campfire and reptiles feeding at the Nature Center with the park staff. The woman at the CCC museum was very interesting to listen to her stories about the area. All in all, we really like this park and we would return without a second thought. It's also very close to I95, so it's an easy off and easy on. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cost includes $5 "transaction" fee. Whatever that is. I agree with the last reviewer though. This is a beautiful park. There is plenty to do for the whole family. The CCC museum was very nice. The bathrooms were clean. The showers were of the newer type with 4 separate units on the end of the building. Unfortunately there isn't any ventilation in them so on hot humid days they get pretty steamy. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Travel Trailer.
