If you’re looking for swimming pools and mini-golf, this isn’t your place. But if you’re looking for an (almost) bare bones campground to unplug & unwind, Otter Creek is fantastic. The campground is quiet & minimally tended but the sites & bathrooms are all clean & well-maintained. The creek offers great background noise for sleeping and looks like an awesome spot to cool off in the summer. Very near amazing hikes like Sharp Top & Rocky Row. Also near a nice put-in (or take out) kayak spot at the James River Foote Bridge. We thoroughly enjoyed the almost-deserted feel and isolation.
