8 Parks near Doswell, Virginia

Very nice and clean park. We stayed in July during the week (5 days) and the campground was less than 1/2 full. We had a premium pull through site with a concrete pad so the site was top notch and level. Showers house had a/c and was always clean. Very quiet and peaceful during our stay. Although the staff is very friendly, they don't understand the way an RV turns so they gave us less than ideal directions to our site forcing us to make a tight turn that could have easily been avoided by sending us down the correct road. Lots of shade/trees throughout the campground. Some of the streets are tight especially in the "older" (never updated section) designated for tents and small units (so avoid those roads with larger rigs). Overall a great campground when on a site that matches your rig/needs. A little pricey, but you are paying for the convenience to be next door to Kings Dominion with shuttle service. - IBpraisingGod

This is a true 'campground' for those who love to be close to their neighbors. While there are some 'rv park' type sites for longer motorcoach vehicles, with pull thrus, most of the sites are for tenting, pop-ups, and shorter back-ins. Trees shade most of the park, which is nice during the hot summer months for most campers. It's pricey, but convenient to Kings Dominion, and a free shuttle runs every few minutes. While other parks might be a lower cost, and less folks close by, the convenience of leaving the car at the campground trumped. The shuttle also allowed us to let the teens come and go to the rides when they so chose, not something that we could have done at a park 10 miles away.
Our site was short, but my 17 wheelbase made it acceptable, though it was wet and muddy right outside our door because of recent rains. The site on our driver side was never used, which was actually nice for us, since it was so muddy on the door side that no one would accept it for the money they were being charged.
Wifi was easy to attach to, but was only clocked at 1 to 1 1/2 mbps, not so great, but doable.
While the main 'streets' are mostly asphalt, ours had a severe turn near the end, and many trees had limbs encroaching the height of a class a or fifth wheel.
During the summer months, especially weekends, this place is packed - kids and parents walking and biking all over, dogs being walked constantly, and RVs of all sorts coming and going. This is not an 'rv park' for those of us who are looking for an overnight stay.
The facilities, overall, are acceptable, and probably fun for those weekenders and vacationers looking for that 'camping' experience with their neighbors. - hturnerfamily

This campground is what you should expect from a major entertainment park. Very clean on neat. We visited late in the season so the campground was pretty slow which was great. We didn't spend much time in the campground but while we were there it was very nice. We would stay again if we are in the Richmond area. - John Borajkiewicz

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

Good location for sightseeing in the area. There are no amenities, which wasn't a problem for us in a motorhome. The site we had was not very level and it was short. The highway noise was bad all five nights we were there. It was not very conducive to walking our dog as the camping area is very small and the mobile home park attached had a lot of dogs that didn't like us! We'd probably find another park if in the area again. - Tony Connie and Rusty

This is a no-frills park with no rest rooms. Water pressure is low as others have mentioned, but nothing that cant be dealt with. Wi-Fi worked fine and was strong enough for us. The park is quiet, and there is little noise from the highway. Our daily rate reflected being a member of the Kosmo Club, which involves a one-time fee of $15, and allows one to stay at the reduced rate for 2 weeks every year. We have stayed here before, and would certainly stay here again, as this is a convenient location for visiting people in Glen Allen. - hoppytoad

This was the second time we have stayed here while in the Richmond area. It is very convenient to downtown Richmond as well as surrounding stores and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again, and have always found it to be clean and well-maintained. They sell propane on the premises. - Edistobob

Nice park over all, there are a few places towards the rear that have workers staying and it gets a little junky looking. We were in the F row on the way north and in the E row on the way south which was much nicer. Friendly staff and the escort you to your site to make sure you get in and hook ups are to your satisfaction. - delacamper

We have a big rig, and the sites were just large enough for our rig, & had to park the truck in another site. Sites were clean & level, not too wide though. Power & water supply adequate. Turns in the park were tight as there is a ton of trees. Rain made for numerous pot holes & puddles. We did have a satellite friendly site. Staff was extremely friendly. WiFi we did not use. Park needs some TLC. You will hear the interstate road noise. A lot of full time residents in the back. If needed we would consider returning here. - Field Trip

No soap, towels in restroom. Bugs, cobwebs in restroom and showers.
Laundry room looked like it had not been cleaned for months.
Will not stay here again. - Rlcjw

Rather of stayed at the near gas station. Pool was green - so bad couldn't even see a foot deep and tiles were stained with black stuff, what tiles were still on. Bathrooms did not have toilet paper most of the time and very dirty, toilets had rings in them. Grass was allowed to grow up to your knees. Complained about your pets a lot. NOT PET FRIENDLY. Electric for the site ran almost $4.00 a day for a 29ft camper. Sites are narrow and dirty. And no such thing as quiet time when dark. Will not stay again. - campordie

We arrived after dark. Our reservation was left taped to the door. Our site was marked, but not very easy to see. Once we found it, we had a slight problem. At one end it was muddy. All of the hook ups except the sewer was hidden in large evergreen bushes, with the sewer connection 10' forward of them. A very narrow site, we could not use our awning. The camp store is small. The staff is nice. The bathhouse/showers were ok. One had no TP, no handles on the sink to use the water, and no power. At least there was hot water. The other shower did not work at all. But the lights in that one did. We will not be going back. - stormer41

We were appreciative of the shaded pull-through site with 50 amp service. Temps were in the high 90s so glad to pull off into the shade. The WiFi is only for overnighters and was a bit of a struggle to get the pass code to use it but staff brought it out and was very friendly. We were escorted to our site and it is nice and long. We got no instructions for the park itself regarding cable or garbage. They could improve on that for sure. I read something else that said there is a charge to use the above ground pool. So not really an amenity. We actually passed Hidden Acres about 6 miles before we got here. They also have Passport America, pull-throughs, and a pool they probably don't charge for. I chose R&D because they got better reviews but regretted the longer drive. - Djinfl

This is our 4th visit here. There are a lot of full timers, but all sites are clean and appealing. We always get lot 25. It is spacious, level, good power, good water pressure. This CG has DirecTV throughout. This CG is in much better shape than previous visits. Ron and Don (owners) are just awesome and cater to visitors needs. Will certainly visit again. - Nomad61

We only stayed at this campground for one night. It's way out in the country and very quiet. The site looked unlevel, but when we set up the levels we found that it wasn't that bad. We had a 50-amp pull-through with full hook-ups. - mrpeepers

Rate reflects Senior discount from NPS. This place has improved since our last visit. It is in a good location, has easy access, each site is roomy, and comes with table. Check in is "easy" but first go to the office, then they have you pick a site, return to MWR, sign up, then go hookup. Lot's of back and forth. We found a good site close to bath house and were able to pick up WiFi in coach. If we were further away, not sure it would have worked. However, the utilities are still messed up, with a need to share water stanchions, and sewers not always placed conveniently. In addition, they seem to be (according to other campers) always working on water issues and so the quality is questionable. We resorted to bottled water. And when we dumped at our site prior to leaving, we realized the sewer lines were backed up. Told by another camper that this happens every other month or so. So if you can do without WiFi, cable, have long water hoses and two-fers, and are willing to chance the water and sewer, it's not a bad place. But clearly, they need to put some money into the infrastructure. - Too-wow

This is a MILITARY campground on Fort AP Hill, available to military and civilians working for Dept of Defense. It is not difficult to get on and use the park, if you are authorized. Getting a full hook-up site at Champs is almost impossible with all the contractors and civilian employees taking up many of the "good" sites. Plus, they've got 4 of the 30 amp sites tied up with rental trailers. The camp host couple both work on A.P. Hill. The utilities are misplaced and not effectively utilized. Despite all this, the location is excellent. We used it for a shake-down at the start of spring and to help friends who had just purchased an RV (retired military) learn how to set up and use the RV. It is probably not a destination site, unless you want to hunt in the fall or do some fishing. Some LONG term seasonals (over a year!) are taking up the 50amp sites, so your choices are limited. - Too-wow

Very clean campground. We stayed in a cabin and never expected it to be so nice. The beds are sealed in vinyl so you get nobody's cooties and they are easy to clean. Many activities for the family. Lovely swimming pool also. We camped with Cub Scouts but chose to be in a cabin as we brought our dog. The campground is very dog friendly. They are extremely pleasant people. Can't wait to go again. - Joanne62

We stayed in the deluxe rv site with "enhanced fire pit" and patio furniture. The site was nice, but the firewood didn't burn very well. We are a family of 6 and had to pay extra for half of our kids. With the price of the campsite I thought that was overkill. The pool was nice. Playground was fun for the kids, but very outdated. The Gemstone Mining they advertise is you buying a bag of sand/gems for $12 and sifting it in the water. Overall nice little trip with the kids, but felt overpriced. - Lisa H

This park is located off a narrow, winding road. The entrance road could use some patching. The interior roads are dirt. The sites are gravel and somewhat level. The wifi was weak. We were next to the pond and duck poop was everywhere. (Can't stop the ducks from pooping so I'm just saying). We had a rain storm and our site was flooded. Had to stay inside until it drained. - Michael47

We had come in and booked for two nights. Once we were there we realized it was not going to be for us. No level ground, no sewer, place was a mess and had cats running all over the place. We stayed one night because we had family that stayed in tents. We asked for a refund for the second night but they said they dont do refunds only gives rain checks. I will be giving those to someone else because we are not going back. - HeatherRVing

Let's start with the pluses: great people to deal with, easy choice of sites, wonderful tenting areas, right on an arm of Lake Anna, staff quick to help and correct problems (just tell them the restroom is dirty and it's tended), well stocked camp store, great views and good water with mini-beach areas for swimming. We checked out the area before deciding to spend a weekend and are not sorry we did. Met great folks, had relaxing time, and enjoyed ourselves. Now for the minuses: few level sites for RVs, hookups shared with others, dump station on top of hill, road in to campground (and up to dump site) could be improved, some campers let dogs run and leave messes where ever, electric box had no breaker plus boxes were older and loose, a few folks were not observant of quiet hours. In summary, this is a rustic site with many seasonal/permanent trailers (at the back of the property) where they welcome you and you can relax. But do NOT expect state park level sites with well maintained hook-ups. If you are into tenting, this is DEFINITELY a place to consider. If you have a larger RV, you might want to look first. The pictures in the web site are excellent and very representative of what we experienced. We would go back on a non-holiday week or weekend to enjoy the people, the lake and the ambiance. - Too-wow
