8 Parks near Doswell, Virginia
Jul 2016 - $65.00
Stayed here while visiting the amusement park on the way back from Myrtle Beach. Wife, 2 girls (8 and 13), and the dog.
Good check in experience: very welcoming and helpful. They did send us down the entry road the wrong way, however so we had to work our way around so we could approach our site correctly to back in. Had to go back to ask for a branch to be cut to accommodate my rig. They sent someone over right away and we took care of it. Very responsive.
Nice grounds. Lots of trees, but also sites without. Good roads. Odd set-up at some sites where rigs are facing each other: so you are kind of camping with your neighbors. Had not seen that before. Some hookups on the opposite side of the camper. Not sure if we would have reached. Had not heard anything negative about it however. Rained hard while we were here at night. Some sites have poor drainage and water was there for quite a while. Others drained better. Ours was OKish, the one next to ours at the end was really bad.
Not many people here during the week, weekends busier. Wifi was excellent. Bathrooms/showers very nice. There is really only one location, so if the park was full (and had a lot of tenters), I would think this would be a challenge with capacity. We did not have that issue.
Transportation supplied to the park if desired. We did not use since I had to go back/forth numerous times for our dog.
Overall a nice campground. Good facilities. Helpful staff. Perfect for a few days to head to the park. Did not explore surrounding area much. Did not use the pool but one is here. - T.Butter

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 a small self-contained only park is on the front end of a mobile home park screened by trees. The office has a night registration board, mail slot was hidden behind the board, no way to tell if an empty site was reserved. Other than a small playground, there are no amenities here other than site hookups. There is road noise from Rt 1 but it quiets down at night and the very bright security light would make those staying closest to the office think that a UFO is about to beam them up. No cable, but local OTA channels are good with the standard antenna. Most sites have clear satellite access. Most are level pull throughs. The voltage may drop on a warm sunny day when they have a full house. Good place to stay for a few nights if visiting the area. - Trailbuddy

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

This was just an overnight stay for us. Sites are quite close but a pull through site accommodated our 40 foot RV with toad. Restrooms and showers are very clean. Nice dog park.
Easy access from main highway but traffic noise at night could be an issue.
The office and community buildings were spotless! Staff pleasant and eager to provide assistance.
The free waffle breakfast is fantastic! Juice, Keurig coffee cups, tea, hot cocoa and fruit cocktail complement the fresh-made Belgian-style waffles.
Grounds are well groomed. - Lab Lovers

The staff here is always very friendly and helpful.
Out pull-thru site (full hook-ups) was almost perfectly level so we didn't bother leveling for a one-night stay (although we stayed a second night because of the hurricane).
A free waffle breakfast is offered every day but Thursday, when a free dinner of hot dogs,beans, etc is offered.
Cable TV was fine as was the WI-FI.
I-95 is very close but we just ran our floor fan at night to cover outside noise. - dhaney1944

My price included tax and discount. A very popular place with extensive amenities. Upon entry I was greeted by friendly staff, and escorted to my back-in site. Main roads paved, gravel, level sites. Offered free Bingo, and waffles in the morning. This is a great place for transients, and those who may want to visit Richmond. I just stayed 1 night and did not check everything they offer. Sites are fairly close together, but not cramped. Air Park Road is being realigned, but GPS will get you to the entrance. Park is close to I-95, and there is highway noise outside. I did not find this a problem in my coach. Definitely will stay here again. - John_SC

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 have been here for several months. This little park is a real gem! Nothing fancy, but big trees, shade, grass, big sites, owners live on site and very helpful, constantly working to keep it clean, quiet, and well maintained. The directions are a little daunting, but it is located on a Virginia Scenic Byway, so the drive is beautiful! 45 minutes from Fredericksburg or Richmond, 25 minutes to Kings Dominion amusement park, 10 minutes to charming, historic Bowling Green with gas, grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants. Small store with very basic supplies on site. Decent, frequently graded gravel roads, and level sites. Above ground pool. Bathrooms are very clean, with multiple toilets and showers, and there are laundry facilities. A few cabins, large tent camping area, some trailers for rent, some long pull throughs, most sites are back-ins. There are a number of long term residents, mostly retirees, some contract workers, and the owners are strict about site maintenance. There is one nice area where three or four RVs can park in a circle with a large tent covered picnic table area for small group gatherings. I was prompted to write this review after a recent experience with our refrigerator breaking down, when one of the owners spent about two hours diagnosing and fixing the problem (he has 30+ years HVAC experience and 10+ years with RVs), and refusing any payment! We have been full-timing for 3 years now, and have rarely found a nicer place! And never found a better value for the price! We were able to get some Dish satellite signal here, but there are only a few sites with the view of the Southern sky and one of the three satellites is very close to the Western horizon. - dixiet

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

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

Terrific staff and a very nice park. Access roads were easy to negotiate and signage was good. Site was level and comfortably sized. Nice walking areas, dog park and pool. - Bandguy

We pulled in to this campground with 20 minutes notice that we were coming. The temperature was HOT! They gave us a beautiful large pull-thru site with lots of shade! The only time the sun hit our site was for 10 minutes in the morning! Most other sites were similar. Everyone was friendly and the grounds were kept very neat. We will go back again! - Sherri Christensen

I am not a huge KOA fan, I would rather boon dock. I travel nationally, so end up staying at a lot of them for one night to get water, dump, etc. This was an outstanding campground. Not too many sites, nicely wooded, great store, quiet, well maintained with a cute little pond and decent pool. The staff was outstanding. I was getting a new trailer at a local rv place so had to stay there, the transaction was a disaster and took two days. Still, this park made me smile! I would go out of my way the next time passing trough the area to stay with them. - Robi

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
