Too many year long residents and most of the trailers were vacant. Staff is awesome, which is why this place receives excellent reviews for services and staff. Common area unfortunately has many piles of dog droppings. Very small campground, spaces are a little tight. Could be an awesome park if they clean it up and remove all the old trailers and year long residents. Great cable, hot and cold WiFi, close to the interstate and right outside the entrance to Douthat State park. - Wacker

This really is just a small, basic campground with a country store as the office, but it met all of our needs, was clean, quiet and spacious. If truth be told, this is the kind of overnight stay that pleases us the most. It was $ reasonable with a level pull through site and plenty of room to walk the dogs. The full timers were friendly and quiet. Can't think of any negatives. Would definitely stay again. Not a destination campground, but great for a night or 2. - villager04

What a nice place. Staff was great and the camp kitty (Timmy) is a hoot. We would camp here again. - Art n Jackie

Stayed at Beaver Dam Equestrian campground about a mile past the campground store. All sites there are 30amp W/E. Most were pretty level and fairly spacious. Very nice and quiet, especially since there is no chance to get any OTA TV channels or Verizon signal for phone/computer. Camp store and office have wifi access, at least. The lake is close to half a mile away (either by walking to Lakeside camp loop, which has no hookups but is the only camp loop right on the lake, or by walking to the boat ramp). You have to walk on the road, which doesn't have much of a shoulder in spots. Like other VA state parks, the downside is the price. Add in the transaction fee (even for walk-ins), non-residency fee, and taxes, and you are paying around $40 for E/W. - aowcarol

We had a beautiful roomy lot, that was a back-in with plenty of room to maneuver. We had water and electric only. The lots were all level. The only real draw back was the fact you had a long drive past the campground to register. I thought the price was a bit high. - sammy32

Douthat has an amazing lake with a very nice large beach area, swimming, including two lifeguards, a floating diving platform, fishing, kayaking, paddleboat and row boats for rent or you can bring your own. Lots of hiking, horse trails and a very good restaurant open Wed-Sun. The area is beautiful and lots of exploring all the way into WV and the mountains and small towns there. Will definitely plan a trip back. Only reason it gets a 9 instead of a 10 is that the camp site power (like most state parks) fluctuated from 115 to 125 and the breaker would get hot and trip at least once a day. - WayBro

Nice, clean, quiet. Mostly all shaded spacious sites. Only one bath house so on major holidays beware. The county run facility is top notch for county facilities. If you have a pusher style or a monster 5th wheel, you might want to reconsider as the 10 mile trip to the facility is twisty narrow county road. Pool is exceptional and the fishing lake is NICE. - Jim Qbaum

Electric is 30a only. Water pressure is 10psi. Hardly enough to was dishes let alone take a shower. Water pressure in the bathhouses is strong. No Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone is very weak.
AT&T Air Card low data signal strength. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card surprising good signal Strength. No Cable. Roads getting to the park is a bit difficult. Narrow and windy. Not signed enough to make it easy. Sites are grass or gravel but not level. Stacked two 2x8 to get close to level. Site length of site 56 is long and plenty of room around for awnings and slides. Getting to some sites is confusing due to the way the site markings and interior roads are laid out. Restrooms old but look clean. Didn't see a Laundry.
No Long term tenants. Park was almost empty. DirecTV Satellite is accusable in many but not all places. 50% Discount for Golden Age Passport. Payment is with check or cash only. I would stay here again if in the area, but water pressure was so low making it unpleasant. Water comes in from the water reservoir behind the campground and is only gravity fed. Pressure in smaller sites is much higher. - TXBobcat

We stayed 4 days at Lake Robertson campground. To make reservations, you must call, then send 1 night's deposit by check. No credit cards accepted at the park. It is an attractive campground that is clean and well kept. The bathhouse was clean with plenty of hot water. There is also a laundry room with deep sink. The rangers and camp host were very friendly and helpful. The gravel roads are well kept and the pads are about as level as I've seen. There is a large swimming pool, and lots of trails throughout the park, most around a mile long. There is one that goes around the edge of the lake with benches at fishing areas and lots of trash cans that keeps things clean. The lake has fishing and boats can be rented (no motors). The biggest problem I have with the park is the condition of the lake. The lake is spring fed and crystal clear, but with large algae blooms and lots of submerged plants that extend from the lake bottom to the surface from about the 10’ depth to the shore. With all of the plants, there is no way to fish from the shore. You must rent a boat to go into the middle of the lake if you hope to catch anything. Received no OTA TV signals. Phone service was OK with only 2 bars on Verizon data service. - jebgg

This is an update to a review I posted a couple of years ago. Since that time the campgrounds management has been turned over to a new contractor (Royal Elk) and from what we saw they aren't doing such a hot job of hiring campground host's. We arrived in in loop 3 at 4PM and the Host showed up at my trailer at 9PM to finally check us in, and didn't know if she had already checked us in!! We were camped there for 4 days and saw the Host's twice during that time and no one cleaned the showers or rest rooms during that time. The men's room is down to one toilet and one sink as the other 2 are broken. Fortunately there were very few campers so things didn't get too bad in the restrooms. Additionally, in my earlier review I suggested taking a short cut via Jackson River Turnpike and Richardson Gorge Road. DO NOT GO THIS ROUTE if you are towing or driving an RV. There is a section where part of the road has washed out and there is a tree down blocking part of the road. Going this way was never for the faint of heart as it is dirt and very narrow most of the way and if you meet someone it can be nerve wracking. - scjenk

Most sites are fairly level, and sites are large, with a base of fine gravel that drains water well. Water sites do not have electricity. Sites are a little tight together, except the water sites (which also have the best view). Most water sites are fairly low to the water and have a trail to the water for access to kayaks/canoes and boats. saw lots of folks fishing, but did not see any catching!
This CG is being operated by a contractor; they were very hospitable and did a good job.
The loop 2 bath house is nice and has private rooms for both bathrooms and shower facilities. I think the other loops have conventional shower stalls.
This is a pretty mountain lake, ideal for the "rustic" camper with an old growth forest and lots of wildlife. Seems like there were always birds chirping, squirrels barking and other wildlife sounds.
If a remote camping experience is what you seek, this CG is for you; if not, go somewhere else. There is no TV reception, very limited radio reception, no cell phone service except maybe text capabilities in one or two areas in the CG, and no weather radio reception. Satellite is very spotty because of a heavy canopy of trees.
I would rate this CG higher than "average" if it were not for the long difficult access roads. The roads are adequate for a camping unit of moderate length. But, for a class A or long fifth wheel unit, the route in is just not pleasant. Between the fairly narrow roads, hills, tight turns, fast logging trucks, low hanging limbs and rain at the time, it was not a very enjoyable trip in for us. If you do go, follow the directions on the website to find the CG signs. Do not use a GPS exclusively. - Bama Camper

This is a US Forest Service campground on Lake Moomaw in Virginia. We stayed in Loop #1 site 19 which has 30 amp electric but no water or serwer. The drinking water tap is only about 100' from the site so I was able to hook up a hose to refill my water tank. The site is relatively level, I needed about 2" of lift on the curb side. Everything in this loop was clean and neat and very quiet (we were there during the week), the restrooms were clean as were the showers. You can't see the lake from the upper loop, but if you want to really rough it (no electric) the lower loop sites are all waterfront. The lake and surrounding area are absolutely beautiful, with mountains totally surrounding the lake. There is a beautiful sandy beach, about a mile away, (no life gaurds) and the water is clean, sandy bottomed and warm. There is a marina where you can launch and retrieve boats, but no gas is available. There is no additional charge for the use of these facilities if you are a camper.
We went by way of I64 to 252 which turns into Rt 42 which takes you to Millboro where you get RT 39 to Warm Springs and the Rt 39 and Rt 220 intersection. Route 42 had only one stretch of fairly steep twisty road (5-10 miles) but the rest was pretty easy. Route 39 (after the 220 intersection) on the other hand has a very steep, up and down, and very twisty (multiple hairpins) stretch to the Rt 600 intersetion. I suggest taking Rt. 687 (Jackson River Turnpike) which avoids the climb and descent. It will turn to dirt for about 3 miles but the road is in good shape. It has no guard rails and there are some pretty good drop offs and narrow spots. Decide for yourself which is best for you.
When you get to the camprground there is nobody in the booth at the entrance, just go to your site and the campground "host" will come to your site and check you in. - scjenk

Small campground with no amenities except a dump station that is not accessible by big rigs. Note: NO water except a hand pump, so come with full tank. A shallow river runs directly behind sites. Supposed to be good fishing, kids love to play in it.
Site 2 was all grass, no shade, huge, and level. It would be a problem for big rigs if the ground was wet. Sites 1-9 work for big rigs, site 9 has best shade but is across from the only pit toilet. No smell, just high traffic. Most sites might be a challenge to level.
Absolutely beautiful area. Green, green and more green. Pretty intense driving, narrow roads, no shoulders, logging trucks. No AT&T or Verizon at all. - bobcovey

This is one of many primitive campgrounds located in the George Washington National Forest. A one-lane gravel loop with thirty back-in sites with mostly level gravel parking pads. Self registration, no hookups, no showers, vault toilets, heavy woods, most campers seemed to be locals, very quiet and rustic. There is a dump station located near the exit. A number of water faucets are located around the loop but you may hold up the minimal traffic here as you fill your water tank. Water was brown and a notice said it was borderline safe for consumption. We used this place for an overnight stop although it is a forty-five minute drive north from I-64 over narrow and steep winding roads. Best to stay a while and enjoy the hiking and fishing in the area. I would have given a higher rating if the water quality had been better. - CDB

Stayed here just 1 night during our trip south. Friendly and helpful staff. Sites are close together but still seem private. KOA very family-friendly and was having Halloween-themed events with lots of children in attendance. Was surprisingly quiet and we had a good night. Clean showers with good water pressure. - The Places in Between

This is the second overnight we have done at this campground, and we have been impressed both times. A great office staff and a clean campground. Very close to Natural Bridge State Park. - Lucy7513

Very old KOA with very narrow roads and very unlevel sites. Site we was in could use some gravel as it was mostly dirt. Needed two sewer hoses to hook up sewer. It appears that they are trying to make some improvement but still has a long way to go. Will not recommend or come back for the price. - Biggyrat

It's a great place to stay when your showing your horse. It's nice to also stop here overnight. Parking on the property makes it convenient to be there for your horse when you show on the grounds. There are 5 different areas to park for the night. In the corner of the North camping area is the dump station. - kimme

My wife says this is the worst campground we have ever stayed at and I think it is certainly one of the worst. It is mostly a trailer park with about six pull-through sites. The road coming in is a disaster and you wonder if you are going to be able to get out. They do have full hookups and they say they have Wi-Fi, but I was not able to get on line. There is a much nicer city park in Buena Vista (Maury Park) nearby which does not have 50 amp or sewer on some sites, but next time we will stay there. - bobbyg

Nice office staff, interior roads had ruts apparently from rains, a step grade to pull out of park, OK for an overnight stay in dry weather' This is a mobile home park with several RV sites. - ljofwin

This park was definitely only for an overnight stop. The people were very friendly, but we had to go around twice to get into the last of four pull-through sites to even remotely level our rig. We ended up not being able to open the steps while the driver's tire was off the ground on the other side. The grass on our site was at least 6 inches high. We didn't get a cable signal so someone from the park attached us to a site several sites over to get cable. I didn't see any pool although the Passport book said it would be open in 2009. I asked about the pool and was told there was none. - RVerMJ

We used this campground as a one night stop on our way north on I-81. We prefer camping in natural settings whenever possible and this campground fit our needs. It is a "classic" National Forest Campground built by the CCC. We used one of two pull through sites for our 30' trailer. It was level so we did not even have to unhook. The campground is beautiful and very wooded. The campground road has two narrow bridges that may cause issues for longer units. Sites are nicely spaced and offer a wide variety. Area is well maintained and two or three campground hosts do a great job. If you can survive without hookups for a few nights, this is a great stop! - linnemj

A great little forest service campground not far from Natural Bridge VA. They have a small lake with a sandy beach area and the whole park is quiet and kept very clean. Lots of fun stuff in the area for family"s to do. The Natural Bridge Safari is a must stop. The caverns are a nice stop too. - GDM

Cave Mountain Lake Family Camp, 802 Cave Mountain Lake Road, Natural Bridge Station VA 24579. We needed a campground in the Natural Bridge area, found Cave Mountain Lake in the 2010 Trailer Life Directory describing forty two 12 X 22 foot back-ins, no slide-outs, and no reservations. We called 540 291 2188; yes, there are vacancies and yes, can accommodate our 30 foot fiver. This is a gorgeous Forest Service campground designed and built by the CCC in 1935. There is a beautiful stream running the length of the campground, and just below the campground there is a dam and a 7 acre lake and beach. Distinctive CCC stonework. There are 42 mostly heavily shaded sites occupied mostly by local families with tents or tent trailers; sites 28 to 40 are non-reservable. About half of the sites would accommodate the 30 foot fiver with easy back-in; sites are long and wide and will easily allow slide-outs AND awnings. Sites 2, 18, 20, 24, 27, 28, 39, 41 & 42 (a double site) appear to have enough sun to partially power solar panels. Sites 36, 37, and 38 are lovely,widely separated walk-in tent sites along the creek. Sites 32 to 35 are limited to 12 foot trailers. Each site has a table and a fire ring. 21 day limit. Reservations: 877 444 6777 or www.recreation.gov Daily fee: $15. There are no hookups of any kind. The only “luxuries” are showers, flush toilets, and 9 un-threaded water spigots. ADVANTAGES: No TV reception; we weren’t able to WATCH the Awful News. No radio reception: we weren’t able to LISTEN to the Awful News. No Verizon service; we weren’t able to RECEIVE any awful news. All we could do was enjoy the natural beauty, the sound of the creek, the campfire, and the bird songs. RATING: We rate parks according to what they are (in this case a basic, no frills, glorious Forest Service Campground), not by the number of “resort luxuries”. According to our rating system, this park is a solid 10. - meanderingman
