We are local and brought our new RV for the weekend while our son was camping with Boy Scouts at the primitive area. Great facility, reasonable cost. No sewer, but great bathhouse, great hiking and biking. Pets welcome. Will definitely come back for some R&R.

| Nice campground in an otherwise urban area.

Nice secluded park on the grounds of a historic Civil War battle. There are still trenches and breastworks visible within the campground. Lots of trees makes for lots of leaves on the ground in the winter, especially when wet. I suggest you bring a rake. Not all sites are level. Can't beat the price for the area.

| Nice place

The Park office was under construction (about finished) but they had an office trailer around back. Easy check in, nice people, clean park. We camped in the B area backed up to the lake. Small store in the end of the trailer. The only bad was the men's shower was being redone. Not really a problem with the 5er. Overall nice place, an hour or less drive to the ocean or Williamsburg. Lots to do and plenty of restaurants if you wanted to partake.

Stayed two days on site A1 during fall festival.Rangers were very helpful on advising us what spots we would like. Bath house could be updated but worked fine for us. Sewer hook up would be ideal. Will stay here again.

Like most state parks, there's no sewer hookups, which stinks for someone with a small bladder that needs multiple middle of the night breaks. No a.c. in restrooms either. However, you can't ask for better surroundings. All spots had full shade all day, from what I could see. The sounds of nature all around, it was wonderful. Virginia Beach is only an hr away, Williamsburg is only about 30 mins, Richmond is about an hr, and D.C. is about 2 hrs.

| Great place for nature lovers

This is a gorgeous park for getting back to nature. It s huge and offers everything a camper would want. A nice lake with canoe and paddle boat rentals. Boat ramp if you bring your own small boat, playgrounds, walking and bike trails and wildlife. First site we were given had huge bumpy roots trying to come thru (thought it would interfere with leveling) but we got another site without a problem. Dense shade with paved sites with grill and table. The holiday weekend filled then we were one of only 3 occupied sites in our loop by Tues. Small camp store with the essentials you forgot. Also sell ice and firewood, and hot dogs. Didn t use the facilities so can t speak to that. Whole place needed to be mowed but there has been a lot of rain. Advertise WiFi but it usually didn t even show up as a signal and when it did, it wouldn t stay connected. Thought a tad high at $36/nite for W/E and dump station.

| Pretty campground with easy access to I64

By user-6441352... on 2019-08-09. Stayed 2018-12-29 to 2018-12-30

In the winter only two loops are open, which puts everyone pretty close to road noise from I64. However, the sItes are spacious and many have lake views. The bathrooms are a little dated but they were clean and warm. Many hiking traIls and a five mile bike trail aRE within the park boundaries. 50 amp service is available on some sites.

Large private wooded sites. Restrooms are rather old but work fine.
