5 Parks near Petersburg, Virginia

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

Nice campground south of Richmond. Easy access from I-85. Seemed like a lot of long term workers staying there however that said, the park was well kept. Check in was smooth and we received a very good restaurant referral from the staff. A good overnight spot..worth coming back to again. - ownedafew

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

Dingy campground. Overnighters were all placed in the front of the park, in the open. No trees, no privacy. One of the reasons we stayed was for the "Italian" restaurant within walking distance. The restaurant was terrible. Their pizza oven was broken so there was only some sketchy italian meals available. Stay away from the chicken marsala - it was really bad. A forgettable campground, a regrettable meal. Pass this one by. - drewcher

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

My stay here was more of a stop over than a destination visit. I am traveling the central east coast this summer and booked my stay in advance to insure a place to park my fifth wheel during the holiday weekend. The park was full with mostly family's enjoying the holiday.
I found the park to be very nice with privacy and loss of trees, which I enjoy. There is a laundry room here with three washers and dryers, a plus for s state park, and they were in good condition. Also the park has a pool and kayak rentals available for campers. - RetiredVagabond

Great service from park employees, well maintained facilities, very nice water park. The park is in a wooded area with wildlife associated with "the woods." Take precautions regarding insects and mice. - cdouglas

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

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

We stayed here over the 2015 Memorial Day weekend. I enjoyed the campground. There were some issues. The bath house needs to be updated, it was somewhat clean but needs to be updated. The fun zone looked awesome from a distance. When you got close you could see that the birds have pooped all over the first one on the right that you come to. There was also standing water in another. The other playground was big and nice, my son enjoyed playing there. On a positive note, the campsites were nice. The sites were plenty big and spacious. We stayed in a Patio site. Good access to the River and awesome views of the Chickahominy River. The pool looked nice, but we never used it. I would stay again. - gusman38
