Nice new park with wide paved campground roads with both back in and pull through sites. Bath house was like new and in the style of newly renovated VA State Parks. Laundry facilities provided in one of the two bath houses. RV sites were large, well separated, and generally level but still needed blocking to level our RV. Some pull through sites were runoff rutted. Plan to arrive early to pick your best unoccupied site. Lots of trails to hike. Camped mid week and only two of the 23 RV sites occupied. Will definitely be back. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Motorhome.

Super nice state park complete with hiking, fishing, etc., and even inexpensive laundromat services. Can't ask for much more except maybe a lower rate. At $32 a night for W/E I just about croaked! Staff says it's super busy in summer but during fall we were only 1 of 4 or so campers. The camp hosts were also exceptionally nice. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, newer State Park. 50% disabled veteran discount (very appreciated). Sites have good water and electric, and the dump site is clean and well kept (no sewer at camp sites). Situated next to lovely Lake Anna. Probably very busy in summer, so you may have to reserve. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Truck Camper.
Sites are W/E only. Although we had reservations, it was "pick your own" site with no guidance from the staff. Not all spaces could accommodate a 35' 3-slide fiver. The space we finally did find was level and wide, although the surface would get pretty sloppy in the rain. The park facilities are very good and we enjoyed our stay.

I loved everything about this campground. The whole park is very clean. Big roomy clean sites. Bathrooms were spotless and showers are big and clean.The lake is wonderful and has a beach that is very clean. Nice swimming. I would refer this park to anyone. Loved it!!!! Must see. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Travel Trailer.
The sites here were large and level. Not a lot of shade in the electric/water section. Would have preferred more trees. It was quiet and patrolled regularly by Spotsylvania sheriff. There is a swim beach that was crowded with locals the weekend we were here. The lake water is very warm and there was heavy boat traffic. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Interior roads all paved. Crushed gravel pads for RVs and pea gravel for tents with outdoor hooks to hang your trash away from the critters. Sites were level with very good spacing between them and some site pads longer than others. Sites 24-46 have EW. Extremely clean and well patrolled. Staff was pleasant and helpful and other campers were courteous. The beach and swimming areas were well kept and very popular. There was a trailhead almost right outside our door and we went hiking nearly everyday. Cellphone coverage was good. "Camping Cabins" are available. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is almost too commercialized. It's a very clean park with lots to do including, fishing, hiking and a great beach area for swimming. My only complaint is they didn't leave enough trees when it was cleared so unless you know the park and get there early you won't have shade until later in the evening at most sites. You can't reserve ahead of time so that's why you need to get there early. It is a great place to stay if you have kids because of the amenities which they even have a concession area at the beach and a gift store with nature information that the kids would enjoy. The restrooms are very clean with private showers and even a laundry room. We would probably go back but would prefer a park with a little more trees and more feeling of camping.

We camped here with a group of friends and were able to get sites next to each other. All the sites are clean and mostly level with picnic table, fire ring and pea gravel tent pads. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. Camp hosts and park staff were very helpful and friendly! We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Tent Trailer.
Cost near $35 with taxes and a transaction fee added. Lake Anna State Park used to be the Goodwin Gold Mine reaching it’s peak in the 1880’s. The last gold was found during the 40’s then in 1971 the lake was used to serve as a water coolant for the Virginia Powere’s nuclear plant. It was turned into a state park and opened in 1983. This park has hiking trails, bike trails, fishing, gift shop, lake, swimming, ranger programs, restrooms, showers, and horseback riding trails. There is a visitor center with exhibits on the history of the park. We would return to camp at this park. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Motorhome.

I could have cut and pasted previous reviews. We have camped here before and the state parks are EXCELLENT. This was our 2nd shakedown at Lake Anna, and we were getting ready for the summer camping season. Site was reasonably level. Registration is easy and ranger very friendly. Saw rangers drive through on regular basis. Not a lot to do this time of year and we had cold and rain. But a short drive to Louisa and we enjoyed excellent barbeque, ice cream and then visited a winery for a tasting. We had a friend who had never camped at a VA state park before and she was impressed, vowing to camp at more of them. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great State Park. We were the first visitors for 2010 and were very pleased. It's an immaculate park. The Park Ranger was very nice. The only draw back was that it was located about a 1/2 hour from Route 95. We were here for one night, but wished we could have stayed longer!!! We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a great park! All the water/electric spots are large enough to accommodate the largest rigs. Spots are large, well-spaced, level and hard-packed. Each has a picnic table, fire ring with grill grate, and a loose gravel tent area. All sites, with the exception of several pull-throughs, back up to woods and provide enough space between sites to not feel crowded at all. The two bathhouses were very clean and were equipped with private showers and laundry facilities. The dump station had two sewer outlets, water connections and trash dumpsters. Park access was excellent with state/county roads large enough for big rigs. Hiking trails are well-maintained and marked, and many are multi-use pedestrian/horse trails. The park lake access has a beach for swimming in the summer. Firewood is available for purchase at the park office. There are several convenience stores outside the park within five miles, but no camp stores for RV/camping-specific supplies. Overall, camping facilities at Lake Anna were the best I have experienced in Virginia. I highly recommend visiting in October when the leaves are changing colors and the crowds are small.

We have camped here before and the state parks are EXCELLENT. This was a spring shakedown getting ready for the summer camping season, and gave us a chance to camp next to friends with the same purposes. Site was reasonably level though friend had more problems. Pea gravel on area on side of coach could accommodate tents and was cleaned prior to our arrival and neatly groomed. Registration is easy and ranger very friendly. Saw rangers drive through on regular basis. Not a lot to do this time of year but hike through woods to lake was nice. Outside of park are several winerys and some reasonable places to eat. Dump station on way out has access on 2 sides to facilitate crowds, and was level and easy to use. Biggest issue is need to level coach in sites with more unevenness than would be expected. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Motorhome.
