“Convenient to Richmond”

Reviewed Jun 09, 2018

Overall Rating

The best thing about this park would be the location which is only a 30 minute drive to the vibrant city of Richmond. Since they do not lock the gates at night, you are free to explore the area. The trails are well marked although the mountain biking trails aren't that challenging for experienced riders. The rental yurts are adorable, ... more

“Fantastic State Park”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2018

Overall Rating

​Great large park south of Richmond. There are tons of hiking trails and nice biking trails here.
The park and bathrooms were super clean as were the showers.
Site was a bit unlevel, but plenty of privacy.

“On the pricey side, great for campers with kids”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2017

Overall Rating

Our site was directly across from the bathhouse and one of the playgrounds. We were there on a weekend and there were a ton of families. At one point, there were as many as 20 children at the playground. So it was very family friendly. Cell service was great on all four networks. This is a large campground with two sections and they... more

“Lots of Space and Trails”

Reviewed Nov 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Great location close to Richmond and necessary stores for supplies. We're full timers so being able to restock without a 30 minute drive is important. There is at least 30 yards between sites and plenty of room at each site to feel comfortable. Electric and water at each site, we ended up in a 50 amp site even though we only need 30 ju... more

“What a gem!”

Reviewed Oct 22, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed at Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield, VA in October for one week. We camped in a 40’ fifth wheel pulled by a RAM 3500 dually. GPS was accurate and access to the campground was a breeze. Check in was quick and friendly. We paid $20 per night for a water and electric site. There are no sites with sewer in the campground.... more

“State Park with unexpected extras”

Reviewed Jul 27, 2017

Overall Rating

We only had a couple nights here on our way south from Maryland. But we definitely wish we'd had more. The sites are nice and spaced out appropriately. The big thing for us were the "bonus" features of this state park including: - a large pool and water feature area - an interpretive hayride through the park - the Civilian Conservat... more

“Richmond-area getaway in the woods”

Reviewed Jun 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a big state park with lots of trails for running, hiking and mountain biking about 30 minutes from Richmond, VA. There are multiple loops, and a good choice of E/W sites in more wooded and more open settings. The only ding was proximity to a gun range, which did take away a little from the peaceful setting during the day. Richm... more

“Make sure to get there early on the w/e”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2017

Overall Rating

NOTE: I-95 in VA has a number of over route signs posts that have less than 14' clearance. This is a very nice but popular park. Sites are not assigned so you pick one when you arrive and on w/e or school holidays they will be very limited. If you are in a tent, pop-up or small camper this will not be as much of a big deal as a la... more

We stayed 4 nights while visiting friends in the Richmond area. This park was centrally located for what we wanted to do. It allowed for a day trip to the Colonial area of Williamsburg and Jamestown. Also, there was a great selection of trails for hiking and biking. Canoeing and kayaking are available too. The sites are spacio... more

“Nicest campground in the Richmond area”

Reviewed Jun 23, 2016

Overall Rating

We have stayed here before while visiting family in Richmond. It's not necessarily the most convenient to our family but it feels safe and for the most part quiet. It is much nicer than any of the privately owned RV parks – of which there are very few anyway. We stayed in one of the pull thrus in the back section with 50 amp service ... more
