Our first visit and an unexpected pleasure. Was a bit concerned as no reservation confirmation was received (later learned that was their norm), but from our arrival all concerns were put to rest. Again, this was an overnight stop for us, but it had everything a family with children would want. Nice large pool, fishing pond, large grass play space and a playground for the younger set. Our pull-thru site was long, level and paved. Office featured a well stocked store and very friendly and helpful staff. Great find. - Dunwoodyradio

At first sight, it looks very crowded with permanent trailers. There is an area for overnighters. A pretty lake at the bottom of the park, with a pavilion and picnic tables. However, not much maintenance. There were tons of cigarette butts around the bath house and bits of paper and some butts everywhere. Additional overnight sites have been added. They have also added more permanent sites to keep up with the demand. They do not rake or clean up sites regularly, apparently not enough help. Because of the lake, this park could be really nice with regular maintenance. - twotimes

pulled in for a 1 night stay - majority of sites are used by long-term folks. Looks like they're upgrading some overnight sites with pavements and new utility posts, but because of our small size, were given a ground cover site with lots of tree roots and a slope. Had to use blocks to level. Went to use the shower, but floor in the community changing area was covered with water.
quiet campground the night we were there, but with drag races so close by, can just imagine how noisy it gets when there are races - best bet, when you call to make reservation, ask if there are races and then decide. All in all, it was a nice place for our stay. - yesmar

This is a decent RV park. They do have shaded lots, which is a huge plus. They have ample laundry facilities and a nice pool. There is no pavement, which makes it hard to walk your dog after a rain and them not get dirty. It's in a decent location (about 15 minutes from shopping and the gym). We chose to stay there because it's close to where my husband was working. There is an awesome Mexican restaurant a few exits up (towards Colonial Heights) which is fantastic! The speed limit is strictly enforced - 5 mph. The only thing I didn't like was the low water pressure and the WiFi signal wasn't strong even with a range extender. Other than that it's a quiet RV park in a safe area. - Erin G

We were looking for a quick 2-night stop near Richmond as we traveled through the area. Based on other reviews, we had prepared ourselves for the worst. In fact, it's those reviews that encourage me to write this review. This place isn't as bad as it's made out to be- in fact, I kind of like it here. Staff can make or break a place; the staff here has been super friendly and welcoming.
We are in A-8 which is the first row in the park. It's a 50-amp spot and a 70' pull-through site. We have a beautiful shade tree (which is trimmed nicely back so that it doesn't brush our camper). Side to side, the site is fairly level. Front to back is sloped pretty heavily to the rear- we can manage it in a trailer (42' fifth wheel), but I could see this being an issue with some motorhomes. Though, we have had motorhome neighbors on either side of us coming and going. My other complaint for the campsite, is the number of ant hills around it. We carry and sprayed bug killer as we setup and haven't had issues (thanks FL for that lesson). Our picnic table seemed to be freshly painted and was in good repair. Their wifi worked, but was slow. Verizon and AT&T service are good. We hear some highway noise when outside, but not bad. There have been little flashes of power going off; just for a moment each time (resets clocks). Water pressure is good.
These front sites are well kept, mowed, and utilities are about midway. The lake IS overgrown with lily pads, but it looks pretty. The back sites seem pretty cozy and are mostly filled with seasonal/annual residents but they're generally well kept. There are a set of sites under the trees that could be really nice. Part of it is storage with some very dilapidated units. And then there seem to be some not so well marked sites. There are a few cabins that looked well-kept from the outside.
Each day that we've been here, we have noticed them doing something. The last couple of days, it has been painting picnic tables and office. - LearnToRV

Staff was very polite and helpful. Park is very convenient to I95. Cable and WIFI worked great. Pull through was available. Would stay again. - sonofabaker

Very nice state park near Richmond and Petersburg. The park was full so reservations are recommended. Long pull-throughs were easy to manage. A very popular place to camp. - slay

Love this park. Well maintained, clean. There are two sections to the park- an older and a newer section. Newer section more accommodating for big rigs. Lots of space between campsites, giving you some privacy Playground for children but it is located in direct sunlight so mostly used in late afternoon or evening. Lots of trails for hiking and biking. They needed a little mowing while we were there. Office staff very nice. Camp Hosts extremely helpful and friendly, and they kept the park very clean. Amphitheater where they had a free concert. Children's splash park, and pool. Boats to rent. Some shade in the newer section. The older section is very well shaded. - Campn42

We have stayed here before while visiting family in Richmond. It's not necessarily the most convenient to our family but it feels safe and for the most part quiet. It is much nicer than any of the privately owned RV parks - of which there are very few anyway. We stayed in one of the pull thrus in the back section with 50 amp service and water. There is a dump available on site near the front. The site was fairly long and level. We had enough room for our 45 foot motorhome and the car if we parked it at an angle. It's a bit pricey for water and electric but we will return again. BTW - there is a Virginia State club you can join for free. You can earn free nights at all state campgrounds. - Free

Great hosts, friendly and helpful. Nice site with Chickahominy River view. Boat launch and fishing docks on site. Easy access and plenty of parking. These are newer camp sites upgraded to FHU, 30 amp electric. The down side for some might be the 'Main Camp'. Many older RV's used as Summer fishing rigs and a few year round residents. Not a problem for us. Restrooms/showers were dated, but always very clean. - M GO BLUE

It was a nice park. We stayed in lot 334 which is the closest spot to the water available. Nice decorative concrete patio and fire ring. Office staff was nice, the store has everything you could possible need camping in RV or tent. It is a large campground and we do not have a golf cart so close to office, restaurant was better. There seem to be a lot of locals / permanent but everyone was extremely nice. We will go back again. - Chris-Esther2008 _

This is a very large campground, so in season I would suspect that it would be very crowded given its location to Williamsburg which is about 20 minutes away. We notice that some of the sites have a strange location for hookups but most do not. There's a great playground for kids and a very nice swimming pool for adults and kids along with an amphitheater for various festivals. The on site restaurant is fantastic real Italian food. Great campground in the fall and spring as it's not crowded at all, the summer could be a zoo but most campgrounds near the water and Williamsburg are. - NPmoto

Second time we have stayed at this campground, site the first time here was much better. Location works for us as we are visiting family that live near. As others have reported the restaurant on site is excellent. When we are back in the area will stay here again. - Wingn1
