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!

  • View of our campsite - lots of space!
  • Nice trees around campsite.  Picnic table & firepit

New and clean. No shade

Campground is very new and bath facilities are immaculate. No shade at sites (hot July day).

Restaurant (Brewpub) is only open fridays and saturdays which was disappointing. Tried to swim at the river but it was trashy.

Staff was great, and would probably come again in the fall or early…

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!!

Large, shaded sites- the pros end there

The shaded spots were a good size and pretty secluded. That’s all the good I can say. The map makes it look like you have water access from the campsite- you don’t. You have to drive to the public beach across the state park. The map of the park is very confusing and we drove by our site at least…

Not my favorite

It’s an amazing drive to this campground, but it definitely wasn’t my favorite. Most of the sites are not level and it felt very crowded. The bathrooms and showers were pretty gross and I don’t think they were cleaned the 3 days we were there. Our site was by the dump station which was in sitting…

Bring lots of people

Lots of space, cheap price, walking distance from the lake raccoons and skunks everywhere all night.

Well run

This is a good campground for a short stay. The sites are small and close to each other, but well maintained. The bath/shower/Laundry facility was very clean and fairly new. The utilities were great. There is a small swimming pool that the kids were enjoying, a short trail, and chickens all over.…

Lots of Nearby Trails

Douthat State Park has a lot of different trails for both hikers and mountain bikers. It's a great place to set up base camp and go out and explore during the day. The facilities are on par with other VA state parks. The bathrooms and showers are well maintained, but aren't anything fancy. There…

Wonderful location to camp

The hill to climb to get there is SUPER sketchy but it’s a gorgeous location. If you want to go ride dirt bikes or UTVs this place is definitely the spot. The staff are excellent, they brought us firewood in the rain and stayed to chat with us for a bit. Dogs are allowed, in fact, the owners have a…

Beautiful park in a beautiful setting

Lots to do here, great trails for hiking. The campground was nice, some spots were more level than others and there wasn’t much screening between sites, but in all the setting was beautiful and the park was worth the visit. The bathhouse was clean . The hot water in the shower wasn’t that hot,…

Great Campground and State Park loop

We followed the signs off the interstate plus our RV GPS and Waze were right on. As we got to the camping areas there was a sign showing the campground names. We were in Whispering Pines CG and it wasn’t on the sign. However, a very short distance further there was a CG to our right and guess what,…

Good spot for a stopover

This campground is good for a one night stopover and we would return to it for that purpose. Clean, convenient sites off highway 81. Not much privacy between sites because they’re quite close together but there are trees. Sites 11 and 12 have more privacy space.
