Night Sky for miles

Reserved a water/electric site only to be near a bathhouse. Traveling with a toddler equals twice the mess.

Site was a decent size because it accommodates RVs. The site was crushed rock, which wasn't ideal but it was quiet even throughout. 

Bathhouse looked like it was fairly new. Loved…

Most Amazing Weekend!

This past weekend was absolutely wonderful!! The park ranger was super nice and helpful and the campground was one of the best we have been to yet. We highly recommend this campground.

Nicely maintained sites and great trail system

Restrooms/showers: very clean, spacious, centrally located. Shower stalls are separate from the restroom and are basically their own room with lock.

Lots: Well maintained gravel lots.  Spacious and didn't feel like we were on top of our neighbors.  Good shade,  lots of trees.  Nice firepits!

JC Cooper is a solid CG

Kerr Lake has many nice CGs and JC Cooper is a good choice for stays. It is easy to get to and has spacious sites and quite a few are waterfront. Some have private beaches. We have stayed at a number of sites and all have been nice, none very level though.

Last minute reservation - gorgeous

I had a short but lovely stay at this campground. My site was right on the lake - it was easy to get to and clean. (I booked a site without electric or water.) Restrooms and facilities were tidy and the staff at the front desk were incredibly polite. Would 100 percent go back.

Run down thousand trails

Almost every site has a bag over there electricity. Limited 50 amps. Lots of road wash outs.

Love this campground !

We absolutely love this campground! We prefer smaller, quieter, more rural campgrounds with lots of trees, natural features, and quiet, respectful neighbors.

This campground had the friendliest staff, awesome, well maintained grounds, plenty of activities and a great location near many…

Beautiful, spacious campsites!

Loved this CG. Have stayed at JC Cooper (like), Nutbush (stay away!), Bullocksville (like), Kimball Point (love too, depends on site though). Campsites are well spaced. Quiet at night. Bathrooms were adequate, but not terribly new which is why I did t give this five stars. Lake is fantastic from…

Easy one night stay amongst the pines

Camping with our Taxa Cricket; sites are slightly inclined, with some better than others— the tent and small camper sites are deeper in the woods (and flatter!). Very clean and tidy.

Great activities/family friendly camping

We camped here again at Staunton River State Park, this time we stayed in site 21, which is an electric site near the bathrooms/showers and one of the best for viewing stars. There is little tree cover and a sort of field behind the campsite where you can set up your telescope and see the stars…

Great spot for Central VA

The campsites are nice and shaded, not TOO close to neighbors. The lake beach was a great time for our kids, and we rented a paddle boat and tandem kayak and all had a blast. The picnic tables, playground, and snack bar at the "beach" were great amenities as well!

Bugs galore

Nice and quiet campground. Plenty of bugs including pesky horse flies. We stayed at a spot that had a path down to the beach. Would stay here again. Nice views. Water was clear. Some sites are on a slope so check your site first. The recreation.gov site has pictures of the lots.

Beautiful tent sites

We tent camped at site A1 and had so much room and privacy. Sites are backed up against pond so there were people fishing here and there, but we weren't too bothered after a certain time. Campground offers family showers and a few kid friendly activities.

Awesome

This place is great and unlike anywhere I’ve been in VA/NC in terms of the lake. The water is crystal clear with sandy beaches. It’s beautiful. Campsites are massive with potable water at each, and almost all have a fantastic view of the lake and/or are on the lake. One downside is there is no…
