“Quiet spot in the central part of Virginia”

Reviewed May 25, 2015

Overall Rating

While driving on the "blue highways" of central Virginia we found this lovely state park to spend the night. It is out in the countryside on Lake Anna. It's a short walk through the woods to the beach.

Since it was early April and during the week it was easy to find a campsite. The sites are spread out, but not a lot of vegetation between sites, so if you want more privacy, this might not be the place for you. Each site comes with a level gravel pad, and a place to put a tent. The bathrooms are newer and very clean.

We came off of RT 522, which is west of the state park and then followed our GPS via backroads to the entrance. There is no signage indicating a state park from this direction, so if you don't have a GPS, you might not find it. We were told there is signage if you come from the east.

“Busy on the weekend, but nice.”

Reviewed May 16, 2015

Overall Rating

We camped as a family in July 2013. We were there over the weekend and the campground was almost full. You may make a reservation online, but the specific spot is first come first serve. The campground is nicely laid out with nice camping spots in wooded areas. One side has water and electricity at each site. The other side is geared more for tents and did not have utilities at each site. There are also small cabins mixed in with the camp sites. Restrooms were clean but there are only two and some sites are quite a distance from them. Showers are included.

Camping fees for Virginia residents are $35/electric,water and $24 for dry camping. Fees for non-residents are $41/electric,water and $28/dry camping. (2015 rates.)

We attended two programs the state park offered. One was a trip to an old gold mine along with panning for gold in the creek. The second was kid focused fishing opportunity. Both had small fees associated with them. I would recommend both programs. There are wheelchair accessible fishing areas near the visitor center.The swimming area was a bit crowded with lots of day-use over the weekend. There are hiking trails and equestrian trails in the park.

The state park is along Lake Anna which is a large lake with a Dominion Power Nuclear Power Plant on it. It is a popular area for fishing and boating. There are other campgrounds and marinas on the lake as well as private homes. (We live approximately and hour away.)
