RV PARK REVIEW
Douthat State Park
14239 Douthat State Park Rd.,
Millboro, VA 24460; Phone: 540-862-8100
Our first park was a state park of Virginia, Douthat state Park. We left excited to get there. The ride to the park was colorful, scenic, and it winded through the mountains. We took the off roads through the country. Staying off the major highways gives us a chance to see the interior: homes , schools, churches, etc. We say some of our bests sights has been when we take a wrong turn.
Arriving at the entrance of the camp we saw what looked very scary to cross, a narrow road over a creek. Jeff did a great job. It was so beautiful driving in. Campers are spaced far apart, giving you lots of room. Fire pit and table provided, dirt pad yet level. The park like all Virginia state parks are kept up very well. Our camp host greeted us and filled us in on the trails to hike, right from camp, how to get firewood, etc. We felt so welcome. Bathrooms where super clean and had private, heated shower rooms. Wow, was that nice! If you're not boon docking, I like paying for the night to get the nice restrooms. The small lake is awesome, we rented a boat to cruise around it. Restaurant and store looked nice, but not open yet. We look forward to going back.
Shenandoah Acres Campground
348 Lake Rd., Staurts Draft, VA 24477
The camp is very kid friendly, great for families. It is very large. We got a nice spot. Campers are closer than the state park. Again everybody is so friendly, going camping is like leaving the outside world behind.
Bathrooms where clean and big. Here we drove skyline drive and did our hikes and adventures. We were here just 3 days. Lovely park.
Winchester, Mountain Lake Campground
127 Mountain Lake Ln, Paris, VA 20130
Phone: (540) 837-2134
We arrived at the park and stopped the truck at the bottom of what looked like a private road to a house. Jeff sent me up to check it out. No way did he want to get stuck up there with our rig. I called Jeff and said come on up. It was very primitive. Old campers, some deserted. Owners son got us set up. There was a group with a big campfire, campers facing each other close by. Surely looked like mountain folks, they were very helpful. They were getting ready for bow hunting, one hunter was a beautiful woman. After getting to know them and their backgrounds ,we had some interesting, educationally conversations. The young lady taught high school robotics and engineering, yes surprise, one was an ex-marine, wounded, and now an insurance adjuster for world disasters. She directed us to the best Brewery in Elkton, called the Elkton Brewing Co. Check out the video with the owner.
Williamsburg Camp, Thousand Trails Park
4301 Rochambeau Dr, Williamsburg, VA 23188
Phone: (757) 566-3021
The park is located close to downtown and to several historical towns. The park is very nice. No cement parking pads. Hard to find level spot, but we did it. You could see they are doing work at the park. Bathrooms where nice, heated shower rooms. Nice big swimming pool and miniature golf included. At each park I so enjoy the decorations campers put out at their camp sites. We spent our days going to Yorktown, Jamestown, Williamsburg and other small towns. Loved the location, and the food was over the Top. Excellent, no matter where we went. It was Birthday week, we had so much fun. We went through the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel , if ever in the area, it's a must. Virginia Beach was so nice. Look forward to going back.

This park was in south Myrtle Beach, away from the overcrowded area. It was on the ocean and Beautiful. Not much shade at the camp sites, but nice grassy sites and level with elbow room.
Big park with a large pond that had many Canadian Greece around it. The park had amazing swimming pools with a float tube section. We will return to Pirateland in the future. Many activities in the area. So much fun!
Camp Green Mountain RV Resort
1-888-481-6348 2495 Dimmette Rd, Lenoir, N.C. 28645
Green Mountain was far up in North Carolina. Very Wooded and Plush. Large lake and Beautiful pool. We had a lovely stream along side our spot in the camp. We did many bike rides and walks here. Our spot was very tight to get into do to trees, but Jeff did a great job, and again other campers always show up to help. No WIFI here, not a place to get work done. A very peaceful time living in nature. Park was large with a lot of open land.
