5 RV Parks near Appomattox, Virginia
Oct 2018 - $47.00
We only planned on staying one night but turned into 2 nights. Nice place to stay for overnight. Close to Appomattox Museum and Park. Right off Highway 460 easy to get to. - Lorie Lee Spark2skip

Check in was easy, no credit cards, pay by check or cash. Campground is neat and clean. Some long term units toward back of campsites but they were all in good shape, none of them on blocks. FHU, sites in open sunlight. Good cell service and good for satellite. A trash can is positioned between the two sites and is collected on a regular basis. There is some highway noise but not noticeable inside the unit. I would definitely return. We stayed for two weeks, it was a good spot to leave the camper for a flight back east. - Nautilus
May 2017 - $40.00
This is a no frills RV Park. It is right off of Hwy 460 so easy to get to. All sites are pull through so perfect for an overnight stop without having to unhook a tow vehicle. Check in was fast and friendly. Sites are gravel and a little unlevel, with a wider than normal strip of grass. No picnic table or fire ring.50amp and good water pressure. No amenities other than WiFi that worked well and our Verizon signal was strong. Road noise was not bad at night. We paid $40 a night with no discounts offered. We stayed May 25 -29, 2017. You are only minutes from the Appomattox Court House National Park and other historical places. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Off the beaten path, this state park offers clear night sky viewing and large sites. This is a true camper's campground. No cell service or other signals. Many hiking trails and a nice lake with diving decks and canoe, kayaks, and paddle boat rentals. Bathrooms were clean, but a little dated. Showers were also clean. Plenty of staff around and you see them everywhere. Rules are enforced. Nice snack bar, but tiny store. Bring what you need. We very much enjoyed the nature activities with the ranger. Not dumbed down and sorely needed for today's kids. They enjoyed it too. This is great for a weekend get away, but probably not much more. It is one of the oldest state parks in Virginia. - hopefulone

Another of Virginia's terrific state parks. Roomy and quiet. Lots of trails and lake activity including swimming, fishing, canoeing. Only downside to this park is getting there. GPS want's to route you down a dusty gravel road. There is another route, but it is a bit narrow without much shoulder. - HokieDon

Laurel Ridge campground is better than Red Bud with larger, more level sites. Campground host was very helpful. We rented kayaks for $8 per hour and enjoyed the lake. The beach is wonderful with lots of climbing structures in the water for the kids. Wonderful hiking trails. No cell service or wi-fi though. - Breezy2011

Not a bad place, we enjoyed swimming in the Pond and the Pool. The Staff was pleasant and accommodating. The Restrooms were OK but you had to hold the handles down until completely flushed, not many people did. The Showers looked dirty so we passed and showered in the coach. Tough entry road due to crossing the Railroad Tracks we dragged our Tow Dolly at the Hitch as well as our Exhaust Pipe. Our site was sloped forward and when I leveled the coach the front wheels were of the ground, I had to back up further in the site to keep the wheels on the ground. The site I was on had 2 posts covered with a PVC pipe and a cap next to the concrete pad, they're there to keep you on the pad, unfortunately they force you to move your coach back and forth to clear your cargo doors and steps. When I pulled out with my car in tow and I made the swing out of the site and drug the rear half of my coach on the PVC covered post, most of the melted PVC came off the paint but I damaged my rear cargo door.This wasn't the Camp Grounds fault but if you stay on one of these sites be careful pulling out. - Tfrout

This is a lovely family place to camp. It's a large campground as in acreage, lots of grassy areas, ball field, pavillions large and small. The turn off the hiway with the immediate railroad crossing is noteworthy but we had no bottoming out. Tracks were used but train is far enough away to not be intrusive. Nice big pond/lake with water slides. Staff is very accommodating and cheerful/friendly. It's obvious a lot of hard work goes into keeping this place in such good shape. The restrooms were clean but old and with some exposed pex plumbing. The mirror over the vanity doesn't work at all for anyone 6' 2". Maybe at 5' 8"? I doubt satellite TV reception would be very good here as the campground is full of oak trees for shade. We don't travel with a TV so I have no idea how the OTA would be. Wi Fi only works around the office. Our T-Mobile service was good enough for our internet needs. Would definitely stay here again if in this area. - DRKM

We have a 40 foot motorhome and tow a car, so the problems (which were many) would not apply to the smaller rigs. Be aware of a very huge railroad track hump as you turn off the main road to the campground; you will tend to bottom out. The campground has many speed bumps much taller than necessary to slow traffic. As we squeezed though the narrow gate opening and tall unattended gate house, the tree lined gravel road was narrow and undulating; tossing the RV about as we crept along, noticing how sloped the sites appeared for the permanent residences. All were neat and clean. Finally approaching the registration area, we could see why the reviews could have been positive. A cute pond was behind, with attractively covered picnic tables dotting the shore. A huge water slide stood in the middle of the pond (lake?). Friendly employees hard at work planting flower beds and laying mulch. I won't go into a lot of details describing how difficult it was getting into a site without damaging the rig. Finally settled, the park was very quiet and you had to listen for the distant train noise. Electric seemed fine, but water pressure appeared very low. TV signal off the air was great. Leaving the campground we scraped the entire side of the rig in order to avoid hitting the gate shack which had evidence of others not being so lucky. There is no need for that. I suggest they remove the shack. I could not recommended this campground for a big rig you care about until they improve a few things. It obviously is well cared for, but they need to grade their roads and campsites better and widen the turns before worrying about plants and grass. Trim the trees back and lower speed bumps. I would though, return in a much smaller rig. (I would still hate the speed bumps and guard shack). - AlisonB

First of all, let me say this review in no way reflects the employees at this park, they were exemplary and we saw them working hard in oppressive August heat.
That said, we really wanted to love this park, we've camped there twice and both times had pretty much the same experience. We have a 40ft Fifth wheel that is all-electric and uses 50amp service. We knew going in the park only had 30amp so we were ready to adjust accordingly. However, the 30amp at site 61 was not true "30 amp" Our PMS service would only allow us to run 1 ac and absolutely nothing else, so when checked we were actually running 27 amps. To run the microwave or anything we would have to shut down the ac. In August, unacceptable. We've run 30amp plenty of times and been capable of running more than just an ac.
Thousand Trails has the bones of many beautiful parks in their system if they could see fit to invest in electrical upgrades and road upgrades. Along with the electric, the road was literally a dust bowl, the gravel used evidently crushes to a white powdery substance that even at the 5mph speed limit leaves a cloud of dust and a covering of white over all your equipment. This should not be so. No one wants to have their units and vehicles covered with so much dust you cannot see out of the windshields!
Again, I know no park is perfect, and even with the dust we so want to love this park, it is a beautiful setting, lake, pool..etc. and not that far from many attractions, Lynchburg, Appomatox, etc. We probably will not return due to the electrical issues in the park. Sadly. - buffy

Nice rural park as others have said. Nearly all full hook up sites and all sites are 30 amps only. Sites have gravel and near all look level, plus nearly every site has good shade cover. Nice big pond and walking trails around the pond, all if so wish you can drive around. Plenty of activities over the weekends we were here. Only small problem we had is the ranger seemed to know less than we did when we checked in, and this was our first time at this park. - M5Adventures

This is an older park in a rural setting. The lake is available for swimming but I wouldn't venture into it due to the quality of the water. This lake needs some serious attention. The interior roadways are all gravel and some are rutted due to erosion. The sites are also gravel and not very level. When we were here the store was not open. Other than at check-in we never saw any staff on the grounds. There were no planned activities during the middle of the week and little on the weekend. The pool was well used but again no staff present. There was a hot tub as well. We went sightseeing in the surrounding area and found the location acceptable. Verizon is borderline 4g and there are few sites that had DirecTV access due to the large trees. A number of sites in all the loops had the power boxes covered. We assumed these were inoperative. Unlike most Thousand Trails/Encore parks there is a high percentage of available sites for travelers. - BobWW

We chose this campground for proximity to Skylar and Appomattox. The park is set way back (7 miles) from the main road. This makes for a very quiet setting. Our site (Red Oak #15) was a very long pull through and was directly across from the bathhouse. The bathhouse is newer and of the same design as Natural Tunnel State Park in Duffield VA (women's and men's restrooms, 4 showers including one handicap accessible and laundry area. Very clean and well kept, great showers! Laundry contained 2 sets of washers/dryers, $1.00 per load. We were close to the camp host site which is where firewood was available ($6 per bundle). The camp hosts were very friendly and joined us at our camp fire one evening. No digital channels available on TV, no wifi and no AT&T cell reception. We weren't quite prepared for total tech-free. Park ranger was very visible and made frequent rounds. Make sure you are gassed up and have all staples and supplies before heading in. The area is very remote. No AT&T cell coverage though the camp host mentioned a strong Verizon signal. - MangoandJune

Hidden jewel, not close to any major interstates. Road leading to park entrance is not very wide, so take care. Worth it once you get there, though. Just about the cleanest park I've ever stayed in. Red Oak campground for the RV's has spacious sites, some pull-throughs, and good shade. Nice laundry room in restroom building. Lots of trails and in-season activities, including boat and tube rentals down by the river (which is a short drive from the RV campground). Verizon signal on the weak side but do-able. Got a few local OTA TV stations. - aowcarol

The only possible improvement might be a pool (and sewer on sites), but sites are large, private and fairly level, Park staff are friendly and knowledgeable, other campers were for the most part considerate. Rangers patrol frequently (which I like). We're absolutely going back! - Central Virginia
