Absolutely gorgeous !

This is our favorite campsite and park that we’ve been to in the state of Virginia! We have so many more to explore but Douthat state park is huge the lake is so much fun, and the trails go for miles! We just started camping and hiking and can’t wait to explore more of the country!!

Very peaceful scenic campground.

The campground is butted up against Sherwood lake and a small mtn ridge range that divides West Virginia and Virginia.  Even though I didn't get to go fishing it looked like a very nice lake to fish in.  The campsites themselves are very nice and the majority is right on the lake.  There is very…

Near Wineries and Breweries

This was an unusual campground. It was divided into areas for RV with full hookup, RV or tent without electric. The view from almost every site was spectacular! There is a bath house but I never used it. Across the street was Blue Toad Hard Cider tasting room and next door is Devil's Backbone…

Close to fun

Nice campground, really close to historic Charlottesville.  Some fun breweries and restaurants are right around the corner. 

Our site was great- up a hill and surrounded by trees. Very quiet.

I'd be less happy if I ended up in one of the lower level sites. No trees, packed in, and near a…

Easy and clean camping

It was conveniently located near great hiking spots. Staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the ease of setting up our tent on the gravel platform by the pond. Those froggos have a lot to say though. Ahh the beauty of living in nature.

Great Campground!

I went on my first solo camping trip to Spruce Knob and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The camp sites were spacious enough and spread out well so I still had a certain level of privacy. Spruce Knob Lake was a great spot for Milky Way star gazing. On my way in, the road was a bit rough and smacked…

Would go back any time

We went here for our first camping trip after buying our first camper. My daughter said she started having fun as soon as the car door opened. The spots along the creek were so nice but they are not full hookup. The full hookups were in the middle but got really muddy when it rained because…

Lovely Place

This is a wonderfully priced spot nestled in the middle of some great outdoor adventure opportunities.

We stayed in the mountain view cabin lower level with our two dogs. The upstairs neighbors were probably as quiet as they could be but you could still hear them walking around and using the…

Beautiful and secluded

About 7+ miles in from the town of Durbin on a dirt road (not sure how that would go in an RV but easy in a small vehicle). Beautiful dispersed camping near a creek in dense, lush forest. Not much for views and only stayed one night so didn’t get to hike but it was a perfect, quiet spot for an…

Laid back camping

Such a cool little slice of camping fun. Came out for a Saturday night, set up camp, enjoyed some good beer and saw some live music!

Decided to stay another night. Super cool place.

Amazing late night stop

We ended up getting in late but the place was very quite and clean. Perfect for our first night in the woods. Nearest cell signal is about ten miles up at the House Mountain Overlook. Rangers on site were super sweet.

  • Creek runs through the campground. Spots on the water fill up fast.

We loved it

Great campground with many sites right on the lake. A place to swim and kayak. Great hiking trails - we chose the one with multiple water crossings. No hook ups but that’s ok with us. Very out of the way so take everything you need. Beautiful drive there too.

Quiet, well maintained rustic campground

Admittedly, we had awful weather - it rained more than 50% of the time.  The weather ruled out our main purpose for being their which was astrophotography at Spruce Knob Lake and doing some hiking.   That said, we had a lovely walk-in site with a nicely situated tent pad, fire ring and large picnic…
