We left as soon as we saw what the campground was. Manager was going to charge us by the foot since we were over 26 feet but since we had already been quoted a price, the manager stuck with the original price. This is no place for a big rig or RV. I wouldn't recommend anything over 30 FOOT - the sites are shallow and is more set up for seasonal than for weekend camping. The transient spaces are not well defined or well kept. We couldn't find a decent place to set up so we had to scramble and find a near by state park and didn't stay. The owner charged us for a full night anyway even though we didn't stay and we couldn't fit the way we needed. The only good thing about the whole experience is that the lady was nice. Although charging us a full night was a little bit much. I'd say $10 would have been sufficient for the trouble. Again this is not for large RVs and is very tight - visual surroundings not very stimulating either. WE DID NOT STAY.

This Campground is alright when there's nothing else around. We were overcharged and the roads weren't well maintained. It's more for people who want to camp and fish more so then those who want to camp and have a nice camp set up. Would not stay there again. The main road was right there as well and you could hear the big trucks going up and down the mountain. This was not our favorite spot.

Bassett Philpott Lake was beautiful, but it was tight in the upper camping areas further from the lake. There weren't many level spots. We'd camp there again but would make sure we found a more level spot. Hosts weren't very friendly-pretty grumpy. We paid half price due to disability. No real problems - loved the area.

I would have given this park a 10 but the water pressure and power were a little anemic. There were a ton of ticks but that's a given during this time of year. The campground was very nice and clean. We liked Campground A better than B as it seemed to be laid out better. We were in a 39 Foot RV and they had some nice pull through sites. We loved the trails and walked on all of them. It was pure enjoyment! There was something for all to do and enjoy. We will most definitely go back again. Go prepared with food though. We left home without stocking up thinking there was a Walmart nearby. We never did find one. We were also looking for a place to eat but the only place in town was Angelos and that was mobbed so we drove several miles and found a Food Lion. We didn't see any fast food. It's in a remote area. I am not sure I'm in agreement with the fact that they mention asking for $5 per pet in all VA State parks. If they enforce this, we will not be visiting a VA State Park anytime soon as we have 4 dogs.
