Claytor Lake State Park is a lovely, well maintained state park along a mountain lake. The RV campground is essentially a large gravel field with a few trees and campsites in rows of diagonal pull through sites. Our site was level and the electricity was convenient. They have water, but it had not been turned yet on when we were there March 6. They were very upfront about the water being turned off for the winter both on-line and over the phone. We had snow the night we were there, so I guess they have a good reason for turning off the water at the sites. The rest rooms were immaculate and heated. There are dirt and paved paths down to the boat and swimming areas along the lake. A very pretty spot. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 nights in Campground D which has electric & water, some pull-through sites & a dump station. We were in a Class B RV, but larger units didn't seem to have any problem maneuvering or setting up; sites were level, shaded, mostly gravel, and pull-through sites were about 33 feet wide. Bathrooms and showers were fine, if not quite as roomy as some other Virginia State Parks. A very nice trail system is connected to campground, and rental boats are available at the marina. There is also a Wi-Fi Hotspot at the Conference Center next to the marina. AT&T cell service was good from the campground, too. Like many Virginia State Parks, there are also camping cabins and lodges available for rent. Firewood was $5 a bundle. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight on our way back from Maine. A nice state park. We were not able to take advantage of the lake and other resort facilities here. Sites were level, but not paved and easy to get around. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful. I could not understand the up charge of $5 for our small dog. We would probably stay here again for an overnight stop We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in this park overnight while traveling on I-81. It is just 3 miles off the interstate. Sites we saw were large, clean, and flat. The fact that the park has its own interstate exit suggests that the park is very popular in warmer weather. There were few others here the night we stayed. We thought the rate of $28.35 a night for water and electric was high for a rural state park. Also, the upcharge for each pet is outrageous, and we avoid staying in Virginia state parks for that reason. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here on a beautiful weekend when the campground was near capacity. We were in Campground D. The site was big and very flat. Hookups were well clear to avoid hitting them. The sites are a bit close to each other. The park provides a brochure on entering of what activities are taking place at the park that weekend...very informative. there is no wi-fi but I was able to pull in 2 bars on AT@T to check email. Did not try the TV. About 1/4 mile down to the lake but there are good hiking paths to get there. Big beach and lots of picnic areas around the beach area. Only drawback is that you cannot reserve a particular spot, you just pick one on arrival; not that there are any scenic views of the lake. They say 4 PM is the check in but when we got there at 4:05 we were told we were the last to check in. Our neighbor checked in at 10:30, so I guess it doesn't matter. Did not check out the showers or restrooms. Really nice dump area for the RV with 2 adjacent dump sites. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This was the first park I have been to where you chose your own sites. The area we were in was little more open than I would have liked. Sort of felt like we were parked in a parking lot. The beach area is great! The kids loved swimming in the lake. Beach was very clean. The area hiking trails were also very nice. We stayed only one night on our way to Nashville. If we were in the area again, I would stay again. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This a very nice state park, clean and well kept with well defined trails, a marina, and a very nice lakefront swimming area. The CG has four sections, three with no hookups and section D, where we stayed with W/E. As noted before, this section is a little "commercial" like than most of Virginia's parks but the sites were a reasonable distance apart, fairly level, clean, and the hookups were conveniently located. If you are planning to stay on a summer weekend I strongly suggest you make reservations. The state of VA insists on charging $5 per night per pet (with a $15 per pet maximum) so our rate reflects the site plus pet charge. Overall, a very nice state park. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park should have received a higher rating except for a couple of problems. The electrical sites are in loop D. We were very fortunate in that we got one of the loop D sites there that were not side-by-side, so we were fine. However, most of the loop D sites look more like a commercial CG than a state park. They were pretty much lined up in row. The other ironic issue is that the last night we were there, there were dogs barking all night. This is ironic because the park charges a big extra charge if you have a pet (we did not). The barking, which we had heard earlier in the day, was coming from housing within the park, presumably a park employee. The park has some nice trails and the lake is beautiful. It is too bad that the cabins are along the lake but the CG is set well back into the woods. You can rent boats to go out on the lake. The park is now charging a 5 dollar fee for making a reservation. This is on top of the fee charged by the reservation service. We would stay there again, but would question the dog issue. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Our idea of a "perfect" park. Large, level, and spacious sites. Trimmed with landscape timbers and filled in with stone dust. Great hiking trails, wonderful lake. Very quiet and tranquil. We are planning on returning soon. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground! Neatly manicured, nicely laid out. Spacious, level sites with fire rings and picnic table at each site. Older but clean bathrooms and showers. Very nice and can't wait to go back and visit again for a longer stay. State of VA does well if all their state parks are this nice. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

You cannot go wrong with Virgina State Parks, award winning. Claytor Lake is more like a Country Club. While big RVers might not get their full hook-up, it is a small sacrifice for the beautiful lake, convenience to I-81, clean bath houses, level sites with nice picnic tables, lantern stands and fire pits. Boat rentals and hiking, the State Park is a great stop! We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was one of the nicest state parks I have camped in. The park has three sections that accommodate different size camping needs. We were in Loop D which was a pull through section. The spots were big and level with water and electric hook-ups. The camp host was very friendly and regularly making rounds. The campground sets back off the lake but is only a short walk via the road or trails. The lake features a swimming area with changing rooms and concession stand. There is a full service marina with boat rentals. Several different coves within walking distance have docks and easy bank acess for fishing. There is a Wal-Mart 10 minutes away in Dublin. This campground has a high dollar feel with a state park price. Will return many times in the future. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice sites no matter where you set up. The camp host was very friendly and helpful as well as all the state park staff. Short walk or drive to the beach access to Claytor Lake. Not the typical VA State Park. Pets are allowed but be ready for a $10 per pet, per night charge for them. So if you have 2 or more dogs the per night charge could get fairly expensive. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love this campground! We visit this campground several times a year and it is always great. The kids can ride their bikes even though there are gravel areas. The hiking trails are nice also. The sites are very level and roomy. The bathrooms are older but clean. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
