State Park in the city

Me and some friends wanted to go to a state park that was within an hour and a half from where we lived. We chose this one and wished we had made a different choice upon arrival. The volunteers were not hospitable like we have experienced at all the other VA State Parks. The grounds were no kept. Fire wood cost a small fortune. Campsites were practically on top of one another. And don't even get me started with the "lake". Grossest state park lake I have ever seen.


Lots of cool places to explore around the campsite

Good state park experience

We camp here often - at least 6-8 times a year.  Lots of good sites, both pull through and back in, close restrooms and showers, and loads to do. We like to bike the trails - available for all abilities.  Walking in the woods is great, too.  Big pool (honestly haven't used it) and boat rentals. Pretty much everything I want in a campsite.

Lots to Do Inside and Outside of Park

Visited in early September; temperature was great, but it rained quite a bit. The sun was plentiful on the second day so we were dry for at least some of the trip. We used Pocahontas State Park as a base camp for our planned activities in Richmond (Civil War sites/museum/breweries). The park has a lot of hiking trails and also offers a variety of talks and events. On our last night, we went to a blue grass performance off the back of one of the park cabin buildings and then the park rangers gave us stuff to make smores! The sites are well maintained and some are secluded enough to find solace. We will return.
