Large campsites, clean facilities. Only drawback is some of the campsites seem to be backward in that picnic table and fire ring on the back side of camper.

Great park with incredible hiking trails. They have super boat facilities including rentals. The park accesses some of the best fishing in Virginia.

Pros - Visitor Center restrooms were spotless. Trails, grounds, and parking lots were maintained well. Some trails are wheelchair and stroller friendly. Great views of the water. Right off of a major road (US 58). Cons - None.

Immaculate and spacious cabins for a great price. Walking trails, boat rentals nearby. Go in to the town of Clarksville for some shopping and dining.

Like other Virginia Parks we frequent, we have reservations that just show non-specific Blue, but will we be able to choose the site we like from those when we get there to camp? I don't want to get stuck with a site we don't like on our only vacation in two years!.
