8 Parks near Gordonsville, Virginia

This campground, in my opinion, looked like it was once a very nice campground. But now, it looks like it has fallen on hard times. About 60 sites, some have W/E/S. There was trash all over my site. I had to take a black plastic trash bag and filled it half way with trash.
There were two travel trailers on each side of me. Both were dirty, run down, had pieces missing and hoses, cables, trash and insulation strewn all around them. The sewer line at my site appeared to be 'full'. I should have left right then. But I didn't. The 30A connection was on a weathered log, had no front plate, no containment box, no cutoff switch and was exposed to the elements.
The one positive that I will say about this campground are that both of the employees that I dealt with were very nice, though they did not appear to agree with my observations, offer solutions nor apologize for the condition of the park. Unfortunately, I can't go back to this place nor can I recommend it to anyone else. - User3064

Camp is rather rundown and seems to be populated by full-time residents. No real amenities beyond a minimal swing set. Rusty water and filthy bathhouse. However, it was quiet. - guamaniac

This campground is a diamond in the rough. The manager and maintenance man were both very friendly and helpful! This park was built 40+ years ago, with limited improvements but decent maintenance since. Consequently, big rig access is somewhat limited and may take some careful maneuvering. There are a few pull-through sites available, but getting a big rig into them may be a little dicey. The bathroom/shower facilities were clean but definitely show their age. There are a good number of long-termers here, but they were friendly and not rowdy. If you want to just kick back and relax, or want to visit the Culpeper area including any of the numerous wineries, this is a fine place to do it. - DB_Engineer

Very large nice family campground up in the hills. Gravel roads and gravel sites with full hookups or water/electric. Both open sky and wooded sites. Sites level but narrow. OK for big rigs. Stayed in red premium site #9. Nice family pool, playground, bounce pillow, lake with beaches and fishing. On-site laundry. OK cell and over-the-air TV, very good cable and free secured but weak WiFi. Nice clubhouse and small store. Kids activities on weekends. 10 miles to Walmart and restaurants. Staff very helpful and friendly. Passport America discount only during valid weekdays though Passport America web site states no restrictions. Will stay again. - Pepper Dan

The campground is an older campground. The sites are close together. Wifi was ok. Cable TV was a little fuzzy. Kids really enjoyed swimming in the lake. - jrhaze

Our third weekend of camping in a row took us to Small Country Campground. A pig roast for all campers that weekend is what attracted us, but it turned out to be just some BBQ, that was just OK, and a few sides. They actually ran out of food!
People there were friendly, but the campground itself was just OK.
They would only honor Passport America on Thursday night, even though their listing shows no weekend restriction, and then because of that one night discount they wanted to charge us for the "pig roast" at 12 a head. They seemed very confused.
The sites were OK, the one we ended up in was a decent size pull through with good water and electric. Many sites were very, very close together, most were not even close to level. All sites and roads are gravel, very few pull thru, most are back in sites (we were on a corner, it pulled through across the corner).
The bath house was dated but very clean, but showers offered very little hot water. Pool was already open for the season and looked nice, and they had a very nice mini golf course, one of the best I have seen at a campground. I don't know that we would return to this campground. - Cyclonic

Great wooded campground. Loved our stay. Nice clean shower and laundry well maintained. have a stock store and they sell propane. The owners and the staff of work campers are helpful and friendly. Can't wait to come back in June for a two-week stay. We love coming in October for there Halloween Haunt makes for a great weekend lots of good things going on in this campground during year. They have full hookups including cable TV. One of my favorite campgrounds. See you in June. - Jim Daniel

We came in March. We arrived late after office closed, and left the next morning before office opened. (The registration material was left for us.) Very few others in campground, but still had a security gate. Shower okay. Nice area to walk dogs. Lot spacing was spacious and mostly shady. Site surface was gravel. - FrankRogers

We have camped at this campground several times. That is to say their is no other ones around. The staff (owner-female) has been rude at times and comes across as just doing business and comes across as she doesn't care if your their or not. The campground road is in need of repair gravel and paved sections have holes and many puddles and mud collect, causing the rig to sway side to side. The exit loop has several large holes and wash outs on the turns. The sites at in need of some care. Mostly leaves and sticks on the ground. Not tidy for the price. The pool is there, but was not open on our visit. Water/electric/sewer all good. WiFi needs improvement This used to be a KOA. But not any more. - Viking009

Sites were very small and had a severe slope. Dirt sites, no gravel. One shower facility with 3 showers for a 200 campsites. Second bath house had no hot water and was very dirty. No fire ring. I had to go searching for large rocks to make a fire ring. Dump station was overflowing. Dog droppings all over the place. I wouldn't stay here ever again. - GoLittleGuy

Super crowded over memorial day weekend - to be expected - playground very packed all weekend. I met some nice people there though. The boat launch is available for 10 dollars for the whole weekend. They have a small swim area on lake for the kids - crowded, but still okay - fairly safe. Sites for non-seasonal are a little too small for campers longer than 25 or so feet. Our friends could not open their awning and one guy across from us had to stick out in the road to open his slide out. I had a golf cart and since I am handicap and had proof, it was allowed. another fellow was told to put his cart back on his truck without handicap proof. I don't know what their issue is with gold carts. the staff use them and I saw the lady who owns it driving around on one too. My mom had to pay $5 a day to visit, and her truck was hit in the over fill parking lot - of course no one left a note to claim responsibility. We had sewer, but could not hook up to it because of the position of our camper on the site. We had to angle it so we did not stick out in the road. Sites are kind of crappy when it comes to length and width. we do plan to return for labor day because it is a good place to launch our boat, close to my son's home, and we are meeting friends there, but we reserved a spot on a hill in the open so we won't have problems fitting our 40 foot travel trailer in the spot. There are a ton of seasonal sites, some very old campers, but the sites are actually well kept even though campers are old. They had activities like music each holiday weekend night. They had a nice stocked store. I went night fishing; caught a lot of catfish. If you like people, boats, water, kids, nice people, lots of activities, this campground is for you. - Tinkielynn

Gravel sites, not terrible, but be sure to bring lots of lumber for leveling. The sites are pretty doggone tight. The bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean, most of the time. We really liked the little beach area for the grandson. Biggest complaint was the water service. They did some maintenance work while we were there and didn't bother to notify anyone that the water would be turned off. When it was turned back on, it flowed absolutely black for a while. If it was me, I'd let people know. - myway2rv

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

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. The sites are all concrete with outdoor sinks and gas grill. CATV is good. WIFI was spotty. There was hardly anyone in the campground. Very quiet. Free washer and dryers! - jrhaze

Rate is Coast-to-coast Deluxe for an Elite site. The Elite and deluxe sites have concrete pad and huge concrete patio with real table and chairs, gas grill and sink. All the concrete is nice when it rains a lot like it did on us. Excellent site other than most sites have a pretty significant slant to them potentially requiring extra leveling effort. Utilities worked fine. WiFi worked fine. Verizon signal iffy. Easy to get in and out of campground. Roads are all paved. It was tight with 40ft fifth wheel and long truck getting in/out of actual site due to light post and decorative fence with a narrow road limiting swing room.
Regarding the $100 charge, it is only a preauth to validate credit for incidentals like if you charge to your site at the restaurant. It feel off in the usual 3 days. We were asked if we wanted to do the "sales pitch" for a gift but there was no pressure, simple question, no big deal. Service was outstanding, facilities are very nice including multiple pools, fitness center, free laundry, etc. Maybe the nicest resort we've stayed at in 6 years full-timing. - cwier

We also were made to present a credit card in which they put a $100 charge on that they then take off when you leave. We were charged an extra .66 cents. What for i have no idea but i am going to call them to find out. The place is beautiful, very well kept. We always seem to hit it in March and it is hit or miss with the outside hot tub being in service. The inside one is really nice. We camped here under Coast to Coast Premier so we paid Zero to stay. - paula22222

Stayed 3 days mid-week in one of the 23 Electric & Water sites when the campground was perhaps two-thirds full. There are an equal number of No-Hookup sites in another loop, as well as some Tent-Only sites. There are quite a few cabins available for non-RVers, too. Most of the sites are back-ins on the edge of the campground road, with a few pull-thru sites in the center. Sites appeared level, with considerable shade, and enough vegetation to provide good separation from neighboring sites. The camping pad is gravel, and pretty long - I had about 90 feet and many appeared comparable. The large fire ring & picnic table area is light-colored, densely-packed pebbles. The bathouse was pretty clean, as were the 4 spacious individual shower rooms on the back. Plenty of hot water & good pressure. Bathouse also has laundry facilities, although I did not use them. The map says the paved trail to the lake is half a mile, but it seemed a bit longer. You can also bike or drive. The lake area has a nice sandy beach (with lifeguards), snack bar, playground & gift shop. Gets quite a few day use visitors, too. Had enough cell phone service via AT&T to use the hotspot for Internet without any problem. Got a few over-the-air TV stations, too. Overall, Lake Anna was similar to the other Virginia State Parks I've stayed at, and that's pretty good. - NoVa RT

Nice new park with wide paved campground roads with both back in and pull through sites. Bath house was like new and in the style of newly renovated VA State Parks. Laundry facilities provided in one of the two bath houses. RV sites were large, well separated, and generally level but still needed blocking to level our RV. Some pull through sites were runoff rutted. Plan to arrive early to pick your best unoccupied site. Lots of trails to hike. Camped mid week and only two of the 23 RV sites occupied. Will definitely be back. - HR52

Very nice, newer State Park. 50% disabled veteran discount (very appreciated). Sites have good water and electric, and the dump site is clean and well kept (no sewer at camp sites). Situated next to lovely Lake Anna. Probably very busy in summer, so you may have to reserve. - Travelin' Harrells

Great place to stay. Quiet at night. The back-in space was easy to get into even for an inexperienced driver. Only level spot found during a two week trip! - BaldGuy

Nice setting, has RV/tent/standard cabin/deluxe cabin/caboose sites. Owner was very friendly and would drive by numerous times to make sure that everything was OK. Overall, I liked this campground and will probably return again someday. - User3064

We spent several days in this park, which has great proximity to the Skyline Drive. Our pull-thru site was very large and pretty level. No WiFi here except at the office. Showers are odd pull-chain operations. Two sites across from us had 8 adults and 9 children. Very noisy. Lots of shade here which was good because the weather was warm. - MaineDon
