Their is a link on the home page of FRF, bottom right hand corner
that provides campground reviews for most all states.
Also you can try the Woodalls' campground directory published
each year. KOA puts out a guide each year you could pick up or
have mailed to your home from any of their campground locations.
Other directories out their also. Good luck.

I'm from Charlottesville and have camped at many places in the area you are interested in. I might be able to help if you would be a bit more specific about how long you wish to be away from home, what kind of activities/venues you are looking for, size of trailer. It seems you want to stay within a certain number of hours of Richmond - how many?

PS Don't forget these. http://www.military.com/Travel/Conte...rounds,00.html

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

We live in Richmond. We like camping around lakes, because of the jet ski and our love of fishing as well. Ideally a site would be pull through, electric/sewer/water, 50 amp, any other amenities like TV/phone would be ok.......perhaps a pool, and definitely boat access to the water. As far as area.....doesn't matter. Love to travel, and I have tons a vacation saved up. don't even mind the 200 mile weekend jaunts.

Strangely, the closest place that I believe would meet your criteria is right in your own backyard. http://www.edallens.com/ Haven't been there for years but it is so close to you that it would be no problem to drive down and eyeball the place. Also, try looking for a campground on Smith Mountain Lake.

You might also want to check out Cherrystone, over one the Eastern Shore via Norfolk and the Bay Bridge Tunnel. (salt water, but good fishing and pool. It's on the bay and I think it has a launch ramp. http://www.cherrystoneva.com/
Some of the other campgrounds over that way should also meet your needs.

In Wv

There is summersville lake it has most all you are looking for. Here is the website. http://www.mountainlakecampground.com/ you have to have all the up to date shots and paperwork for your dogs. I beleive you want to be in area 2 which is closest to the lake. Slight jaunt down the hill to the lake about 150 yds. but everyone that camps there just ties there boats and jet ski's up to trees just below the campground. The state run campground doesn't allow animals but this one does again with paperwork. I do some work at rock quarries in the richmond area so with pulling a camper I would allow about 6hrs for the trip.

Very cool suggestions, guys. I have fished at Ed Allen's. It is called "Waller Mill Pond"......electric motors only, would think my ski might piss em off. That sounds like a great place Steve......I appreciate the info. Haven't thought about the bay yet Dimurrw....but that does start me thinking (ut ohhh)
