This was our first trip here. First let me say it was very clean. We came for the last weekend of their season and there were few campers. The area has some pretty water views, nice large Oak, Maple and Poplar trees, and lots of paved area to walk. There is a nice playground for children.
There was only one bathhouse open, however several Porta Johns were scattered throughout the campground. (Not pleasant when it was 30 degrees overnight). The bathrooms were clean.
The shower left SO MUCH to be desired. First, the shower head is on the ceiling which is about 10 feet tall. There is a push button to turn water on (no temp adjustment) and it only allows 36 SECONDS of water before it shuts back off. (I timed it several times after showering) The water is Lukewarm. There are no hooks near the shower area to hang towels, washcloths or a shelf to set your shampoo, soap, etc.
The beach area is small with a concrete ledge next to the water. It didn’t look very safe for small children. There are NO CAMPFIRE RINGS or CHARCOAL GRILLS, except at the cabins. Huge drawback.
There is a very busy main road just across the water that is noisy. You hear traffic late into the night.
If you’re looking to make a short trip or need a quick overnight stay it is pleasant enough, however if you want to get away from it all and enjoy nature I would recommend Lake Anna state park.
This is a small family oriented campground close to Sandbridge beach. They are located on a small waterway that leads to Back Bay. Good fishing and wonderful area to kayak or paddle board. You can even bring a boat. The bathhouse is clean, climate controlled , and never too busy. There’s a game room for relaxing or playing air hockey, pool, and fussball. The owners have corn hole available as well. There’s a small swimming pool in case you want to take a dip although due to excessive rain the week before our trip it was closed for cleanup. There’s a basketball court and small playground. This is a low lying area and standing water at some sites after heavy rains can be an issue. There are a few cabins to rent, pop ups and a bunkhouse camper as well as full and water/elec. hookup RV sites, waterfront sites and tent sites. We’ve stayed here several times and the owners and employees are always very welcoming and accommodating. Pets are allowed on leash and our dogs love it!
