We had an extended stay at Cozy Acres while moving between Blacksburg and Chesterfield. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. No loud parties or no rude neighbors, everyone we met were friendly. At 10:00 PM the place was quiet and peaceful. The only downside was the Wi-Fi service, which was only available near the office. - Bburgbrewer

We drove all day from Pennsylvania to get to this place west of Richmond, VA because the comments were good on various websites. We don't select RV parks based on amenities like fishing, swimming, and photos of kids eating ice cream. Our most important criteria is the condition and positioning of the pad we request and are assigned. Here we requested a site clear of trees so our satellite dish would work and were assured from the site we were assigned that it would. Not so. The trees were too dense and too tall. Perhaps once upon a time when the trees were smaller satellite reception was possible, but not now. There were plenty of open pads and I suppose we could of have moved around until we found one with a clear view to the SW, but it had been a long day.
The roads are all dusty gravel and the pads dirt. The pads once had gravel but it is long gone, and all pads we saw would be gooey mud in rain or even days after rain. Our pad was dry, but there was evidence that it had flooded recently.
On the positive, the staff was friendly and the place clean and green. We intended to stay 2-3 days, but given the condition of the park we left the next morning. - Joe67

We were really looking for a site in Shenandoah National Park but everything was full. This was the only site we could find anywhere around for Memorial Day weekend. It seemed that there were a lot of groups here and we were just a single family. I guess if you were in one of the "groups" it would be great. - pinesman

We were visiting family in the area and needed a place to stay. This was the only campground we could find nearby that was open. When we arrived around 1 in the afternoon, there was a note on the office door that no one was available to call a phone number. We called the number and were told to pick a site that the owner would return after 4 in the afternoon. We drove around the campground where there were large trees and could not figure out where each campsite began and ended or the amenities at the site. We finally parked by the office and walked around to find a campsite. We discovered that they had a paved area where we could park for the night. We pulled into one of the sites, unhooked the RV, and started setting up. The electrical did not work. We had to hook everything up again and try and different site. The second site did have electric, water, and sewer. These sites were in an open parking lot with no trees. When the owner finally came by, she did not have change for cash so she only charged us $30 instead of the usual $35. She told us her husband died in 2008 and she was trying to run the campground alone. It appears that there has been very little maintenance in many years.
We will NOT stay here again. - Athens4me

Older park not in great shape, but only one in the area open all year. They have seasonals on the wooded sites; we were there only for a night, so they put is in the big gravel lot where you park bumper to bumper with other units and there is very little space in between. But it was winter & wet and we did not get stuck! We would have been more disappointed if we had not read the reviews first, but very little choice in the area for winter! - chasing60

I was not informed over the phone that cell phones do not work anywhere in the area nor is there a public payphone or internet. There is a lot of alcohol present. The facilities are dirty and in disrepair. The showers clog up. People are charged for use of things including pool which is dirty and is only a plastic lined pool. The sewage hook ups do not properly work and you are charged to dump at dumping station. There are long term campers that are loud 24 hours a day. Refunds are not given. - Dawn-Michelle

Like most state park campgrounds Pocahontas offers large sites. The entire park could be explored with many hiking trails and watercraft. Unfortunately the CCC museum is closed on weekdays at this time of year so we missed that feature. We were able to hike on some of the trails. It's an excellent state park. - rvrose

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

Pleasant small park on a small to medium lake. They have many more options for tent campers than for RVs. There are only 9 sites available for RVs and they are only 35 foot long. We camped in a 24 travel trailer and had no problem but it may have been a bit tight in a larger RV. There are a few pull through sites that had larger 5th wheels in them. The lake is beautiful and they have a guarded swimming area. There is fishing sites and trails most of the way around the lake. Paddle boat, canoe and kayak rentals are available. Park is set in the middle of Cumberland State Forest with lots of trails to hike. - Joe J

This is a very relaxing campground with a mix of tents and RV spaces. We stayed with our travel trailer but wouldn't recommend a coach because the spaces are pretty tight. Our site was a back in, level and had a nice tree canopy for shade.
There is no wi-fi, the swimming hole is about a quarter mile walk from the main campground area, paved roads you could bike on and some short, but well kept hiking trails.
There's a small camp store with ice and soda, marshmallows and souvenir t-shirts right at the entrance. About a mile away at the turnoff to get into the park there's a general store with drinks, ice cream, ice, gas, etc..
The staff we encountered were super nice, the whole area is clean and even with lots of kids all around, it was very quiet. - lkc4052

This is the third time we visited this park and this is the second time I've reviewed it. We were pleasantly surprised to find the trees that were in our way the last review were no longer present and it was easier to maneuver this park. There are not many big rig friendly sites and you have to call on phone to make the reservation for the sites but it isn't a problem. We saw more tents in this park than trailers which was not an issue. Our site was large with lots of room and easy to back into and pull out of. They now have wifi available at your site so that was an added benefit that we didn't expect. We only received three channels over the antenna, but didn't really watch any TV while there. There is a swimming lake and trails to hike. It's a beautiful park. The bathrooms were always clean but on the last night I didn't have any hot water for the shower. The dump is not in the best location and had to wait to leave for somebody checking in to move so we could get to the dump but we were able to watch from our campsite and pull out when they pulled away. The dump station is located near where the contact station is coming into the park and spaces for people checking in. The only other complaint we had was the park police seemed to like to drive fast and were always zipping up and down the road at a speed higher than posted. There were a lot of kids in this park and it just didn't seem like a good idea for them to be driving that fast. We will go back and am looking forward to our next trip here. - alnal90
