6 RV Parks near Gladstone, Virginia
Jul 2017 - $30.00
The only possible improvement might be a pool (and sewer on sites), but sites are large, private and fairly level, Park staff are friendly and knowledgeable, other campers were for the most part considerate. Rangers patrol frequently (which I like). We're absolutely going back! - Central Virginia

Peaceful campground on the James River. We spent a weekend to go hiking and rent a canoe for a 6 mile trip down the James River. This park offers a lot of trails for hiking, 3 ponds for fishing and canoe, kayak, tube rentals. For camping it has 2 primitive campgrounds (one on a pond the other on the river), 1 RV campground (water and electric only) were we stayed and a horse campground.
Our site was mostly shaded and most all the sites were separated and private. Thin woods between each site. We had a great time and will go back again. - Joe J

We stay here at least two times per year-the first trip of the season and the last with sometimes a couple thrown in during the summer. It is a great campground with roomy wooded sites and excellent restrooms/showers. - pinesman

This is a no frills RV Park. It is right off of Hwy 460 so easy to get to. All sites are pull through so perfect for an overnight stop without having to unhook a tow vehicle. Check in was fast and friendly. Sites are gravel and a little unlevel, with a wider than normal strip of grass. No picnic table or fire ring.50amp and good water pressure. No amenities other than WiFi that worked well and our Verizon signal was strong. Road noise was not bad at night. We paid $40 a night with no discounts offered. We stayed May 25 -29, 2017. You are only minutes from the Appomattox Court House National Park and other historical places. - BarrettsHappyTrails
Jul 2016 - $36.00
Like the name says, it is a RV Park not a resort or campground, paved roads and 30 paved level sites with grass and good utilities. No pool, no showers, no RR, no store, no laundry or playground. Close to Confederate Museum and historical Appomattox Courthouse National Park. All sites open sky for satellite. Good cell, strong free wi fi in site C-11. Good base to visit area but not a good value. Park three fourths empty in late July weekend. Recommend staying 2 nites to visit Nat'l park and museum in one full day. One mile to town and Walmart. Don't stay in site 1 thru 10 as on busy entrance road to MHP. Staff helpful and friendly. - Pepper Dan

This is an Escapees Park; they do not allow discounts the week before or of a holiday. We were here the week of the 4th of July. The value of this park is bad. No pool, no cable. It even lacks a picnic table. They claim to have wifi, we hooked up but that was it. We were here four night and could not use the wifi. The wifi is non-existent. Being close to the freeway, there was some highway noise. All sites are pull-through; some are shaded. There are some residents in the park. For the most part, they are well-maintained. The park is close to the National Park; the Museum of the Confederacy is right across the street. We were here in a 40' fifth-wheel. - oldbluejay

Exceptional campground. Clean showers, clean flush toilets and a clean site. Full electrical. No Verizon. Water is also not at the campsite but is available between the two large parking areas. (Or, if you're there for a long stay, you may need to disconnect to refill water, as you would if you need to dump.) Only C loop is reservable (17 sites and one for a host). This is relatively open with few trees, and sites are level. B Loop has 12 first come, first serve sites with electrical. Similar to C, but a few more trees. A loop is non-reservable, non-electric, and posted for no RVs over 28 feet. Less level and many tight turns and short sites. Clearly designed for tents, small trailers, camper vans, etc. This is clearly a very popular site with locals. Mid week early April in cold weather the C loop was fully booked, and only a few sites were available in the nonreservable B loop. - OlderGoat

As always this jewel is clean, well maintained, with clean bathrooms & showers.
C loop has electric hookups only, but there is a water fill, & dump station.
A & B loops are first come first served, but A loop is for tents & small units like pop ups. There are two lakes for fishing & swimming, with a nice beach area, and a playground. - bukhrn

Great campground! Level gravel sites, well spaced, and an incredible value. We stayed in B loop, which had electric (for an additional $5/night), but no water. Big fire pits with swing grills and even hanging arm for pots or kettle. Each site has a bear-proof food storage locker, which seems to have successfully deterred bears from bothering to come around. Camp hosts rake each site after departure, so new arriving campers are welcomed to a very neat, evenly raked gravel site. A loop is more hilly and woodsy, but mostly tents and the smallest of RVs. C loop is reservation only, and is the most wide open and treeless. B loop FCFS. Absolutely no Verizon signal. Park rangers make very frequent "compliance runs", so don't even think about breaking any rules. (They are extremely friendly and helpful, however.) The "alcohol prohibited" signs were not notices, but were posted as "warnings". Very strict and intimidating for those of us who enjoy a cold beer after a hike or glass of wine with dinner. (But that is a statewide park rule, not just here). We will definitely return to this lovely campground. - Libre RV

Great location to camp for visiting Appomattox National Park Civil War sites. Couldn't reach park by phone, so just took a chance that sites were available. Registration after hours was on the honor system. Park was located about 6 miles from Hwy. 24 main road and 13 miles from the National Park, though it seemed much longer while traveling through the national forest to reach the campground. Very quiet, relaxing and secluded with only one other camper in sight. Site was fairly level with table and fire ring. Firewood was most reasonable price we've seen (also on honor system), but weather was way too warm for a campfire or to enjoy the outdoors. Restrooms and showers were convenient and looked clean though we did not use them. No cell service in the park, except on a hill close to the office if you are lucky. No cable, and too many surrounding trees to get satellite. Swimming in the lake was available and seemed to be a popular place. Would camp here again if in the area. It would be beautiful in the Spring with the Red Buds blooming. - Texas E-S

This park is located about 5 miles off of Rt 24 down some very narrow roads through the state forest. Just have to take it slow when traffic is coming toward you. Fortunately there isn't much traffic. The campground area is on rolling land and there was little effort to level the sites when they were paved which makes it difficult to level the RV. Our site (#25) was one of the leveler ones but still required us to use several leveling blocks on the rear. One plus is all the trees that provide wondeful shade. The bath house was clean but could use a little touching up with some paint. There is a nice lake for swimming, non-power boating and fishing. - MarkandMarty

Huge lake almost circles this state Park. There are 2 campgrounds, well in the trees. Because of the land topography, some are just not level...but many pretty good. After March 17, 2017, the smaller campground will take reservations per spot. You cannot see the lake from the camping spots, but it is very close. We kayaked the day away. There were some small boats with trolling motors with people fishing. There is a beach...kid friendly. Wal-Mart about 15 minutes away...easy to stop and enjoy some history along the way. - YFF

Great staff and excellent facilities. Gravel site was sloped and difficult to level. Beautiful, well maintained grounds. We'll be back. - DDaniel38

Just enough trees by the campsites to break up the heat of the sun, and not so many as to be in the way. The office is about centrally located in the campground, where there is a large pond that is open for swimming, with a water slide and a fountain out in the pond. Not far from the office is a swimming pool. Some of the many sites are more level than others, all are gravel. Most look like they are pretty good side to side, and front to back is easily corrected. All have fire rings and picnic tables. There is a large pavilion, and several smaller ones. The grounds are surrounded by woods. On summer nights there are fireflys everywhere. It's a very quiet and peaceful place at night. The train track is an active one and we can hear the whistles at night, but, it's not really loud.
Nice place, we hated to leave. - Jimal

We chose this campground as it was close by to a wedding we were attending. Road from Hwy 460 to campground is very rough and patched with loose gravel. We tow with a dolly and the ramps scraped the road when going over the railroad tracks.
Upon registering at the office, which is pretty far down in the campground, we were given site #9 and were told we would have to go totally around the park back close to the entrance, go around the very back row of a section in order to pull straight into our site -- they said the turns were too close for a camper to get into the site any other way. Upon following their directions to the campsite, the tree branches on the back row were so very low, they severely scraped the roof of our motorhome to the point we were afraid we would be missing air conditioners, antennas, etc. Hubby climbed up the ladder on the back of the MH and did not find any obvious damage, but I'm still not so sure that there isn't something wrong up there.
The campground is filled with permanent campers and we have no real problem with that as long as it wasn't loud. Our site was close to the entrance/exit so we were far away from the bulk of the permanent rv's. - gegllwy

We enjoyed our stay at this campground-twice. This campground is a smaller campground located in woods. The road to get there is very winding and hilly. After checking in at a store that had very good inventory, parking, and even hot food available, we found that the level sites were a bit rougher than other campgrounds and although we had a 28ft. fifth-wheel, there was only one or two sites that could accommodate that size. Most were smaller campers. The sites were neither graveled nor paved, but each had a fire ring. Electrical hookups were 30-amp. There were a few pull-throughs. It was a very quiet campground with one clean bathhouse as well as an outdoor field hydrant-useful for cleaning feet or fish. One of the best features was a large pond/lake good for kayaking or canoeing. There is also a separate pond for fishing. The campground is close to Crabtree Falls, which is a wonderful nearby hike to beautiful waterfalls. Management was most helpful and a friendly camp host came by each day to make sure all was well and to help anyone needing it, as well as pick up trash. Our camping friends liked it and would go back again. - notahappycamper-1

Killer drive 12 miles up a steep mountain, and killer drive down (we had to stop to let our brakes cool). Our MH is a mini so not too heavy. It was also raining so it was dark when we finally got here. Only one other site occupied. Beautiful right beside the river with lots of trees. Best for outdoors types. Too far off highway for overnight. - MovableBookLady

Beautiful location and very close to the trail head for Crabtree Falls. We arrived Thursday night and were the only campers. By Friday afternoon, the campground was full. Sites are narrow and not level. The two travel trailers next to us had a lot of trouble getting into their sites. The river-front tent sites are beautiful. There is a small playground and a run-down, indoor arcade with some children's toys. The staff is very friendly. The bathrooms were cleaned daily, but had lots of bugs and cobwebs. - CampSmithVA
