Campgrounds

Folks...would like some input on campgrounds. We have had our 2300 since Oct 2014 and have been to a variety of campgrounds. The only issue is the size of the RV lots. Seems like the commercial lots pack you in like sardines while the Virginia State Parks have slightly larger RV lots. Are there any campgrounds out there (either commercial or memberships) in VA that have large lots/privacy...last campground there was less than 10 feet between me and the three other RV around me....any suggestions?

What are you looking for as far as hook ups.
We've been to Shenandoah National Park a couple times for a week each time.
We stayed at Loft Mountain which has no hookups but there are some sites on the
west side with great veiws and your neighbor is 50/100 feet away.
We loved it.
You may want full hookups so that won't work for you.

You can slide down to WV to Watoga State park where there are some sites with
50+ feet to the next guy. They have water on the way in and electric at each site.
Bath house is decent too. Great rails to trail bike trail right there also.

Happy Trails!

We are looking for standard hookups...water, electric. Really looking for some privacy and quiet! Went to Bear Lake this holiday and left earlier....kids running through our lot chasing soccer ball and family reunion that went on until the wee hours...not a pleasant experience.

Wow your Virginia State Parks must be different than the Virginia State Parks here..... our Virginia State Parks the sites are tiny and way too small for our camper and more expensive, we must go to commercial campgrounds with the larger sites and lower prices..........

There is no one answer it depends, if you go to a place like Myrtle Beach the sites are smaller (high tourist areas) . Lesser tourist areas sometimes have bigger sites but not always..... Many campgrounds were built a few years back when a huge camper was 25 feet in length. There is no good answer..... Where in Virginia are you camping??

We have been to a couple of campgrounds....really liked Lake Anna....had some privacy and next neighbor was well down the road. Lake Anna, Chipotles, Lake Bear and Rappahock were the ones we have visited this year. Do not mind driving as long as worth the visit....

When we lived in Tidewater Newport News Park was nice but that was 25+ years ago we are now 5 hours west in the south of Roanoke area now our Favorite is Mayberry Campground near Mt Airy NC south of Hillsville VA of I77. (Everything Andy Griffith) Autumn Leaves etc.

Virginia like most states is large & vary diverse. Get to the Abington area many nice campgrounds near there as well.

We stayed at Staunton State Park (VA) a couple weeks ago. nice, good separation between spots.

FYI, In the Tidewater area, Newport News / Hampton. We went out to Fort Monroe, Very nice, private run, lot of room.

Come across the southern border to NC. Kerr Lake at Satterwhite Point had some really nice spots (and some tight spots). Kerr lake is right on the NC/VA border off of hwy 85. This was site 65 at JC Cooper Camground Area 2 at Kerr Lake/scattershot point. It had a great lake view with fishing from the bottom of our site (NC fishing license required). Very large site and very peaceful, even for a holiday weekend. I made a list of big rig friendly sites with a water view before I left.

Check out reviews by other RVers at Campgrounds all around you at RV Park Reviews - Trusted Reviews of Campgrounds & RV Parks. The more you use it the better you get at telling what you like compared to other reviewers.

The folks that own this website own that one too.
