If you get site 12, a pull through, this is a great option for a overnight stay. We were going between southwest Ohio and the beaches of Virginia and this worked out for us as we do not like to pull for more then 6 hours. This is a very, very small campground. It probably has one handful of sites and one pull through (site 12) that are available on a regular basis. Site 12 is mostly level and easy to get in and get out. NO complaints at all. Restrooms are clean and functional. It is about an easy 1-2 miles from expressway and easy to check in and staff are friendly. The rating I give is for the location, ease of getting in this one pull through site. Just ask them if they have a pull through available and you will know if it will work for you. The other back ins I would not want to do for a quick in and out and a large camper as we had. - trilliumhills

Stayed at the campground on two consecutive Saturday nights on trip to and return from Kitty Hawk, NC. It was the halfway point. This is an old outdated CG that meets minimum requirements for overnight stops. Site 6 was so narrow, unable to open slide on roadside. Good ice cream at the CG store and the restored down town Opera House show are pluses. - Kytravl

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

We were met by the camp host as we were unhooking our towed and he was very friendly and helpful. Our site in the Whispering Pines campground was level and roomy with good water and electric. Dump stations are clean and convenient. We have camped here many times and are always pleased. - MarkandMarty

The park is beautiful and our site (#23 in White Oak) was one of the best we've ever had. We had tons of room and our site looked over a creek that babbled below us. Our neighbors were all very respectful and quiet, and the camp host was helpful.
One issue that kept me from rating the park higher was that the customer service was not the greatest. We experienced several park employees who seemed less than thrilled to be doing their job. We've never had that issue in a Virginia State Park, and it really surprised us. Also, the waterfront didn't seem to be run very well. They couldn't open the deeper area of the lake with the diving platform until 3pm, and it was Saturday in July.
One thing you should know is that there is ZERO cell service anywhere in the White Oak campground. If you or your kids need to stay connected, this may create a problem. Overall, we did enjoy our stay, but we can't rank it as our favorite in Virginia. - SteveMM

We had no difficulty finding a space in White Oak campground. There were only a handful of other campers there but nearby Whispering Pines was nearly full. The sites are all really long with a crushed rock base. The roads to get to the sites could be kind of cramped with a really large rig but we had no problem. There's a scary little cement bridge to go over to get to the campground. We chose a site that backed to the stream so we heard running water when we had the windows open. All sites have a fire ring, picnic table, water and electric. There's a dump station by the well-kept (and newer looking) restrooms. When we emptied, there was a hose with sprayer to clean the system. Bundled firewood is available; pay through honor system. We took advantage of the many hiking trails. The map for the trails isn't the best but is readable. The trails are really well marked. There are a lot of things to do that we didn't take advantage of such as canoe rentals, fishing, a restaurant. - lkc4052

This is the place to come to disconnect. Electric site only, water and dump station were a disconnect away. Bathrooms were clean, though we only used the composting toilet. Nice walk around the campground. Hosts were great, but they weren't supplied regularly with firewood and the reservation system is antiquated making it difficult to extend a stay. ***WARNING: I didn't read other commenters posts about only arriving via Route 39 and NOT USING GPS, but you really should!!! The sign "RV's and towing Not Recommended" coming from the other direction is terribly understated. The road is tortuous and tight with cliff on one side and a drop off on the other. We came face to face with a truck hauling a boat coming the other way and had 6 inches before we went off of the cliff.*** - Sawbonz

Bolar Mountain is off the beaten path in a great way! Very nice campground with paved roads and sites on the lake. As with anything in the VA/WV mountains, take your time on lots of twisty roads, but it's worth it. Don't expect to use electronic communications, no cell, tv, or even radio. You are down in a valley between two ridges and nothing gets in but sunshine! On a clear night the stars are endless however. - Dale-from-NC

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

The park was easy to find and the road to the park is in good condition. The internal park road are poor as are the individual camp sites. There isn't enough water pressure to take a shower. The site are mostly grass mixed with a little rock and they are not level. Pets run loose. The surroundings look like the area is depress as does the camp ground. Several sites had permanent residents. The attendant was friendly and helpful but I would not recommend nor would I stay here again. - flrop

To be honest, we were forewarned that this was not a destination campground. It is just a parking spot for people visiting the area. So in that respect it fit the bill, we were there for a Med. School graduation in Lewisburg. We were literally 15-20' from the road, so we felt every vehicle go by, luckily it was not a real busy road. A office was being installed by the friendly working manager & I think he stated it will include restrooms, had none when we were there. Wi-Fi did work & I think there was cable. There are two entrances, but our 32' travel trailer partially blocked one & had to park our long bed CC pick-up next to the fence between the entrances. Had room to load & unload motorcycle & park it next to our camper, not sure if awning could have been fully extended, next trailer was fairly close. Basically gravel RV spots are level, short & narrow, slide was a few feet from stockade fence next to road. It is stated that private land is nearby to ATV. No gate or security, probably not required in this area. - foor

This is a US forest Service campground, so its pretty bare bones. There is one electric site and one "Double" Electric Site. All others are no hookups. They also do not have a dump station. The bath house is nice and clean, Showers are individual room type showers, With super nice shower heads that are adjustable to 4 different spray patterns. The bathrooms are normal group style bathrooms with mirrors and hot and cold water, flush toilets. The campsites are all within sight of the Anthony Creek, there is a swimming area on the creek that is like a spa pool built out of stone walls from the CCC. I suspect the water is very refreshing !

Beautiful area, park focus is on forest management with camping a second thought, but all camp sites were good to excellent for what was offered. Water hook-up would have been nice, but bath house is available with hot water (and outside sink for dishes). There is a central potable water spot to fill up and all public water is tested daily by the state. There is not a dump site. - Rivers_Riders

Smaller camp site with only about 20 spots, mostly empty for my visit. Most sites electric (30amp) only. Forested but no undergrowth so still feels "open". Grey water disposal and trash receptacle each site. Dish washing station at bathrooms. All sites have at least 1 picnic table (mine had 2) and fire pit with built in grill. Other activities available (hiking, frisbee golf, pool) as part of State Forest facilities. Must go through single lane tunnel 14' 2" high to enter park. Small camp office with souvenirs and firewood. Very friendly and helpful staff. Brochures and guidebooks left in bathrooms were a nice touch. Sites pretty level with hard packed gravel. No flooding issues even with some heavy rains. Mix of pull through and back in sites. Only a couple miles off I-64 so easy to access but quiet. Campsite a little pricey at $29/night with no water or sewer, but other amenities made up for it. - DawgDen

We selected this park because it is a state park and we have a certain expectation regarding them. What a wonderful find! There are only 16 sites and all of them are wooded. We stayed in #15 which is a pull through. It is pretty level which is not the case for some of them but most look good. I was concerned since the newest review I saw was several years old but every thing I read in the previous reviews holds true. The camp host was very friendly and helpful. The location is a few miles off of I-64. The roads are a little curvy and narrow and there is a tunnel you have to go through. I don't think many motor homes could make it. If you have questions, call them. - JBE2016

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

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 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
