7 Reviews of Staunton River State Park
Nice Area for Exploring

The campground is well maintained and the sights are awesome. The hiking trails are also do horses and parts have been beaten down and there was a lot of horse poop in the trail. Still worth the hike to see the peaceful water though.

Beautiful park in the Virginia Piedmont

Love this park. I stayed in cabin #4 twice in the last year and had a great time! The park offers several activities: hiking, biking, fishing, wildlife viewing, boating (if you bring your own boat), stargazing (the park has been recognized as International Dark sky and there are two telescopes that can be checked out for free at the visitor’s center). The staff is very polite and the gift shop is great! While staying there I saw a skunk, a groundhog, several deer and a great variety of birds. We enjoyed gorgeous sunsets from a little beach area near the cabins. The cabins are rustic (they date back to 1936) but very cozy and clean.

One of our favorite

We loved everything about this park.

Clean bathrooms, friendly rangers, beautiful scenery.

In nature but with a great pool!

Large, flat and level spots were great. The pool here is amazing and it’s a designated star watching area and they even “rent“ (no charge!) telescopes from the very nice Visitor‘s Center!


We went to this park. We had a real good time.We played volley ball. Some of us fished. We cooked on the grill everything was so nice. Me and my family plan to go back.

Very nice park

We stayed over Memorial Day and even though the park was full it was pretty quiet. Good park for families as they have a pool and s on wines show movies at night. Good trails for walking.

Adequate Space for RV and tent campers

The park doesn't offer much in the way of difficult trails. It's very geared toward recreation with a central pool and a large paved road running through the park. The trails run along the river and are easy for novice hikers. Checking into the park in the evening is a little difficult, and the instructions for leaving a few weren't easy to find. We learned that you have to leave and envelope on the visitor center door. The campgrounds aren't well lit and are a little ways into the forest so finding a spot at night is hard without your headlights on but you run the chance of disturbing other campers. The spaces had a gravel pad for tents, picnic tables, and some water sources.
