We stayed here over the Thanksgiving Holiday; the rest of our family stayed in the cabins. The park is beautiful and of course very quiet during this time. The campground was well maintained but I will state that it's not really set up for a big rig. We are in a 43 ft motorcoach so it would have been very difficult to maneuver if the camp had been crowded but we were able to get a spot that was relatively level and had clearance. Turns are tight but if you can make it work, it's worth the effort. My family loved the cabins, the views are wonderful, deer everywhere and so quiet. I don't think I'd try this during the summer months but we all agreed that we'd do Thanksgiving there again for sure. We camped at Staunton River State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We found a wonderful little restaurant in South Boston called Southern Plenty Café. The owner, a super nice lady, cooked all of the meals. We all had breakfast there the last day and would return there for lunch or dinner.

This is a very nice state park. The park attractions are about a half mile from the campground resulting in a quiet campground in an otherwise busy park. The only complaint we had was the difficulty getting our 5er into our pull through space. The sites are laid out with landscape timbers, and about 20 feet from the road the space had a 45° turn in an entrance that was about 10 feet wide. Getting in without puncturing a tire on the timbers was quite a task. Getting out posed the same problem as there was another timber sided turn to get out of the space. We camped at Staunton River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Just outside the park boundary is a small cafe owned by Jeremy Jeffress, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher, and run by his father. The food was great, and chatting with the locals was just a bonus!

This was our first time staying at Staunton River State Park so we decided to use the Memorial Day holiday weekend to try out the park. We got there at 3:30PM and was able to check-in to site #22. The park was completely full from locals which is a good sign that the locals like this park. The campground is laid out in a figure 8 loop with the bath house in the middle near the campground host. They offer firewood for $3 a bundle near the bath house and ice for $2 a bag at the visitor center. This campground is ideal for pop-ups but can be a bit tight for larger rigs unless you get one of the 3 pull-through sites. I have a 30ft travel trailer and it took me 4 times to get it get around the trees along site backing in at a 90 angle. If you take your time, then you'll have no problem getting your rig in the site. This park has an AWESOME Olympic size pool with water slides and a separate kiddy pool with lifeguards. Staying at the campground gets you free passes to the pool. Otherwise, it's cost money for the public to use. The park had scheduled events like S'mores, Campfire Cooking, Wagon Ride, Canoeing, Bee wax candle making, Geocaching and making homemade ice cream with the park staff. My kids love this park and asked "When are we coming back"! We camped at Staunton River State Park in a Motorhome.

This is another beautiful Virginia state park. Our sight was a long level pull through. There was a fair amount of shade. The park staff was friendly. We were here over the 75th birthday celebration and they had several events going on including night time fireworks. We will stay here again. We camped at Staunton River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the original six State Parks in Virginia. The campground is great. It is a little tight for bigger rigs, but take it easy and watch your mirrors and no problem. The sites are leveled with good gravel and have all the usual stuff. The pool is large and popular. The hiking trails are excellent and very well maintained. Hike, bike, or horseback are all allowed on the trails. Fishing and boating on the Dan River and Staunton River are popular activities. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped at Staunton River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice and clean campground on Staunton River. Secured gate at nite. The largest swimming pool I have ever seen and very clean with life guards on duty. Also has a food bar to get a good lunch. Swimming is free to campers and they also have a day use for non campers. Park is big and has picnic areas and boating and fishing. Sites are clean and seperated by timbers in wooded area. Has water and electric hook-ups and a dump station. We will visit here again. We camped at Staunton River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
