Park slightly rundown. Nice store. Near state park and convenient to I-64. Staff was nice. Lot spacing was nearby with some shade. Site surface was gravel. - FrankRogers

Still a good stopping point after traversing WV on I64. Power was good, we didn't use the water or sewer ,as it was a short stop. Store is well stocked and restrooms clean during our visit. They had a free country music concert the night we were there. Rate given reflects the Escapees RV Club 15% discount. - Teacher's Pet

Rate shown includes 15% Escapees RV Club discount. Nice wooded campground with a small well stocked store and small restaurant. Cable, water, and power are very good. Easy access from I-64 on route to state park. - Teacher's Pet

Great park, Whispering Pines, lower campground, is big rig friendly, only drawback is no sewer hookups and cell coverage is terrible otherwise rate would be all 10. - Don45

We stayed in Whispering Pines campground. The sites are gravel bordered by wood, and all back-in. The park was immaculate and the campground host was friendly and helpful. All of the staff members we encountered at registration and at the lake were friendly and helpful. We had fun kayaking at the lake and enjoyed our stay. We have already made our reservation for our next stay. - erabbit

We stayed in Whispering Pines, campground D. This is a new loop with large level, gravel back in sites (at an angle) and a new very nice very clean bathhouse. Sites are water and electric along Wilson Creek. There is no over the air TV. We had Verizon cell. This campground is about 3 miles from the interstate, and another 3 or 4 miles to the park office. The park itself has a beautiful lake and great walking trails. With a reservation you don't have to drive all the way to the office. Although expensive for one night (because of the $5 reservation fee, even for walk in), it is a nice place to stop. Our rate was with the reservation fee, not paying for any pets ($5 each/night), and with a VA State Park pass 10% discount. This campground used to be a private park, which was purchased by the state, leveled and made into very nice sites. We would stay here again. You most likely would need a reservation on the weekend. - 2hams

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

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

If you want an escape from phone, TV, etc then this is the place. Only one radio station available. It was difficult to find a site that I could level out. Had it been during the busy season I would not have been able to change my spot. This was definitely off season with less than 5 campers there. Only one campground open. Hunting season open and Forest Service employee recommended to not go into woods without bright reflective clothing. Lake level is down almost 20 feet but there were some boats out there. I felt too isolated after 4 nights and left one day early. Nice facility but because of isolation I will probably not return. - obxblond

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

A forested CG in high demand. Was difficult getting a weekend visit. Friendly and supportive staff. Internal roads are tree-lined, asphalt and gravel, narrow with sharp turns - a challenge for long rigs. Tree limbs are trimmed so no height issues. Sites are mostly gravel, level, minimal landscaping, nearby to neighbors with mid-rig pedestals. Good water pressure and taste. Fire rings with fire wood available for purchase. Well-stocked office store with groceries, RV accessories, snacks, and souvenirs. Immaculate and modern restrooms and showers. Propane is available at $3.89/gallon. Two playgrounds, nice pool, no spa, coin operated game room. - StephenK

We stayed in this park for one night during our trip to New York. Overall the park was acceptable although the site was very tight. The addition of a wooden deck in an already tight spot did not allow our steps to fully extend. The roads were wide enough for our 36' class A. The park was clean and the staff was very friendly. The store, albeit small, contained most needed supplies. - Rdhjr

Stayed one night at this park on our way home from PA. Nice park, easy check in with friendly helpful staff. Escorted to site. Restrooms very clean. Sites are close together and very little or no ground cover between them for privacy but enough trees for shade. Would have rated this park higher but our site was so unlevel that I used all my blocks and still couldn't get completely level. Even needed blocks to get sewer hose supported and at the correct angle. Would camp here again as a one night stopover on our way to and from PA as it is convenient to I81, just not in that site. - 21fbrs

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

Not a friendly campground for big rigs. We use to go to this one when we had a pop-up camper and it was okay. The owners before the campground changed ownership were very nice. We went from a pop-up to a 32ft travel trailer and almost got it stuck trying to come out of the campground. The new owners were not very friendly at all. They could care less if you were having problems getting in and out of their campground. - cucampn

The campground differed so much from the ad in Woodall's I'm not sure the reviewers were in the right place. The facilities were dirty and run down. The roads and sites are in very poor shape. The fishing pond advertised dried up years ago. The dump station was right next to the swimmimg pool. The park was occupied mostly by full time residents, this appeared to be their last stop before being completely homeless. - jmitch1965

We called ahead and were told we would have a reservation. When we arrived no one was at the office. Called the number on the door and was told to go ahead and park even though no written reservation had been left for us. When we left in the morning no one was in the office. A bit rustic. We didn't take advantage of the campsite entertainment facilities as we were on a schedule. Would visit again. - SD-DC-Emma-Scottie

I have been here in the past and found this park to be in a nice setting. The park has some great views and the drive here is very pleasant. The full service hookups all work well and in proper working order. The staff is always nice and ready to answer all questions and assist you as necessary. I will be back. - ray wyatt

This is a destination resort for families. It has organized activities, a pool, a swim lake, water front on the James River, tube/kayak rentals. Were it not convenient to places we wanted to visit, we probably would not have stayed here as we had no use of the amenities. That stated, this is a great place for families wanting a weekend or longer retreat. The weekend was very busy with kids on bicycles and people in golf carts scooting from one area to another. We had live entertainment on Saturday evening. The band was good and finished before 10PM.
Our site we had was in the upper area, unshaded per our request (satellite). Sites and roads are gravel. Farther up, sites were well shaded and cabins are mixed in with RV sites. Pricier sites are available along the river.
Unfortunately, several of the units in the laundry were out of order, as were some of the game in the game room. - ramblingsavage
