The park is pretty much as already reviewed: woodsy, walking paths, sites not particularly level, family-oriented, close to highway. Pool was kept clean. Not so for sites (litter in the fire pit). Water pressure is low at 26 psi. (I checked three different sites). Management didn't seem to be particularly aware nor concerned about this. Overall, Paradise Lake is a good place to stay for a few days if you are transiting through Danville, Va. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Motorhome.

I came in on a Sunday so there was no one to check me in. I had made a reservation and they told me my spot so I just pulled in. I was very pleased with the site. Easy pull through that was level enough for the one night I was there. While I did not use any services but electric all seemed easy to access. My spot and some others had a deck with a picnic table that looks out over the lake--a nice addition if you can take advantage of it. The site was quite spacious and since my door side looked out over the lake, there was no one on that side which gave me a nice sense of privacy. Since I had no one to check me in and I did not see any paperwork left for me, I did not use their wifi but my Verizon worked quite well. The park was tidy and well maintained. It was quiet (off season so few people there) and nice that there was very little artificial light at night. Nice place to walk my dog by the lake. It was easy access from and to the highway. I look forward to staying again and perhaps for a longer visit. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Motorhome.

Close to the Danville bypass with quite easy on/off. We stayed one night late in the season. The camp was almost empty and quiet after 10pm. There is a rental-party pavilion where weddings and parties can get loud during the regular hours. Our gravel site was fair, a little humped in the middle, so the auto-levelers didn't work well. It was fine for a quick overnight stop, and would be OK for a longer visit. The pond is greenish. muddy-looking, and not of much use. The whole camp is woodsy and has the feel of being in the forest. There is very little road noise. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice RV park in the woods in south central Virginia. Decent space between sites. This is a quiet, though family oriented park, but the lake is far from Paradise. Its really a large pond, not swimmable, but fishing is permitted for a fee. Small boats are available for rent. Modern and clean restroom facilities. Area is hilly so some sites aren't level. We had heavy rain while here but the place drained very well. No flooding and little mud. They do have Wi-Fi, but it was knocked out by lightning and wasn't fixed until we after we departed. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is in a rural area so the closest decent shopping is about 15 miles away in Danville.

There was easy access from the highway, and our gravel/dirt pull-through site was long enough for our tow vehicle, our fifth wheel, and our van. The site was not level -- it dropped off steeply in the back, and we were lucky we had enough boards to stack to be able to use the rear stabilizers (the back end was so far from the ground that our outdoor kitchen was unusable). Our fire ring was full of trash and cigarette butts when we arrived (we took a photo and showed the office before setting up because they have in big print on the rules list that they charge $50 if they find anything left on your site and we did not want to be charged for others' trash). Electric and sewer were fine but the water pressure was noticeably low. Staff were friendly enough and there was a small restaurant there serving sandwiches/pizza/ice cream, etc. Be aware that they do not allow late checkouts at all - we were in the area for a meeting and asked if we could check out a couple of hours late, but they charge the full price of another night if you stay past 11 am. Also make sure you have your propane tanks filled before arrival. We tried to get our 1/2 full tank filled the day we were leaving, and they said they do not have the equipment to weigh tanks - you pay the same price whether you need half a tank or a full tank. There is a lengthy list of rules and warnings and fees for breaking them - it leant an unfriendly feel to the place although, I guess they have just had bad experiences in the past. We would stay here again if we had to visit the area for business but not for pleasure. NOTE FOR LARGER FAMILIES: They allow four people at a site and it is $10 a night for each additional person. We camped here in a 40-foot fifth wheel. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There are many restaurants located in nearby Danville. There are several low overpasses in the local area, so make sure if you travel the local roads you use a truck GPS or consult maps carefully.

Good, not great. The staff is fantastic...very friendly and quick to assist. We had a nice conversation with the owner, and he has made quite a few improvements since he took over in 2010. However, there is still quite a bit of room to improve. The pool is very small and they offer day passes to non-campers, which causes it to be even more crowded. The water pressure was pretty low (site #2). The sites are small but offer some really nice shade and a woodsy 'rustic' feel. The lake is wonderful, with ample paddle boat rentals and decent fishing spots all around. But there's no swimming in the lake, which was a bit of a drag. There wasn't any trash pickup at the site and it was quite a walk to the dumpster. The playgrounds are small and run down. Overall it was fun if you like a more rustic experience but if you're used to a more 'upscale' feel this isn't the place. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped here with two other families, one in a tent and two of us in pop-ups. Let me start off with the friendliness of the office staff. They were very helpful by e-mail and on the phone in arranging our visit. We could not have been more pleased. Our sites were right on the lake, allowing us to bring a canoe and keep it on the bank. The lake is 12 acres and beautiful. Our only concern was the hill between our sites and the bank. It was steep and the stairs were in disrepair. We were a little nervous with the kids going up and down. The sites were gravel and elongated. This was fine with the pop-ups, but the gravel was rough for the tenters. Between the three sites, there was only one picnic table. When sharing this with the office, they brought another table to the site. Water and electric were fine. The pool was small, but ample. The kids enjoyed playing in it and it never seemed crowded. The office had food, tables, and games available. The pool table and air hockey were rustic, but free. The kids really enjoyed playing them. The weekend had numerous scheduled activities, but they were not posted, so participation was hit or miss. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would return. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful lake camping sites. Clean pool and friendly staff. Walk around the lake is quiet and serene. Fishing is great! One little lad caught a really good size large mouth bass! Wi-Fi does not work well down the hill. Our site was near the office and had great reception. As a pet friendly park, the staff needs to stress: "SCOOP THE WASTE!" Guess the dog walk area is the doggie bathroom where hardly anyone cleans up after their pets! Evening walks could be hazardous to your carpets.

Needed a place to stop over while traveling during Thanksgiving. Did not reach anyone in the office but took a chance since there were no other campgrounds in the area. Another camper met us at the office and assisted us in locating a site. Large pull through sites but somewhat unlevel. No problems with hook-ups. Long term guests as noted by others but no problems. Staff was very friendly the next morning and gave us better directions to reach our destination than our GPS had given. I'd stay here again. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Motorhome.

This was park that has seen better days. Water located on the opposite side of the site from the electric. And our electric box was badly corroded. Majority of sites were permanent "residents". The sites were big rig friendly with adequate room. A nice lake to walk by. Friendly hosts. A place to stay for a night or so. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
