Apr 2013 - $11.00
This campground is located at Fort Pickett, and is owned by the county so anyone can use the facility. Be prepared to show the guard your ID to access the fort. During our one night mid-week stay, most sites were taken, but we did see at least three available sites. Sites are located on crushed stone that the grass has largely grown up through. Our pull-through site was not level, but good enough for one night. It was a challenge for us to find the office for arranging for a site, and you should plan to contact the office by phone before it closes at 16:30. We had to call the office three times to get directions to the office and staff went outside to wave at us or we might still be wandering around the fort. The rate shown is for full (E,W,S) hookups. We could only get two TV channels on our OTA antenna, but Verizon air card was good as was Tracfone. We stayed here en route to Petersburg. There are few campgrounds in Petersburg so this worked for us, and the price was certainly right. We'd stay again if in the area. - Jay Rutherford

Even though this park is run by the county, it is located on Ft. Pickett and used mostly by long term military personnel stationed there. There are very few sites available for temporary campers. They are various sizes and not level. There are showers and restrooms available in one of the old barracks, with a port-a-potty located in the campground. There is also an old playground that hasn't been maintained. We stayed here for 2 weeks so we could visit our daughter who works on Ft. Pickett and lives nearby. There were no other campgrounds within 50 miles that could accommodate our 35' fifth wheel. - Frank&Renae

Sweet little campground, off the beaten track, best suited for small-to-medium RVs. Be sure to bring leveling blocks. There are a few sites that can accommodate RVs up to 36 feet or so. Take care when booking your site that you book one you can fit into. Love the restrooms and shower house--showers are independent from the restrooms and very spacious. Dump station in rear of campground. Not much room for people waiting in line or room for anyone to get around those waiting in line, so plan ahead. Verizon signal good for data but phone calls were dropped. Picked up several OTA TV channels. Two sweet little lakes, one walking distance from campground (Lake Goodwin) and the other near the cabins and lodge (Lake Prince Edward). Lake Goodwin has a really nice swim beach. Boat launch areas available for each lake, but beware parking is limited and it is a steep grade to get to those areas. Several trails through the park and around each lake. Farmville is probably the closest town with shopping, including Walmart, but even so, it's a 15-20 mile trip. - aowcarol

This is a typical Virginia State Park. The park is clean and well maintained. It is not, however, geared toward larger RV's. Most sites could handle up to a 30 foot rig. There are 2 small lakes with swimming and small boats. My only complaint was the dump station backed up when I dumped my holding tanks. I could only open my black water valve half way in order to prevent the sewage from backing out of the drain. - MarkandMarty

First time at Twin Lakes State Park. Check in was nice, go pick your site and let them know the number. It's slightly annoying, though, how the check in procedures vary from state park, to state park. This one wanted both vehicles license plate numbers, and one of the vehicles was not there yet. Just was at First Landing SP, and they could care less. Anyhoo.. This campground is very much suited to trailers, as the sites are very well maintained gravel. Very tight, though, so watch out if you are on the larger scale. We did have a tent, and choose E/W, so it was a bit difficult with the tent stakes and the gravel, but there is a separate tent area if you want. Sites were a decent size, but seemed close together with no foliage between. Bath house was probably the cleanest I have ever seen, maybe better than Disney. The beach sand area was raked and and cleaned nightly. There is a seasonal concessions, again clean and friendly. Paddle boats and canoes for rent. All in all, a very enjoyable three days. If we are in the area again, we'll be back! - laurafergie

We were visiting family in the area and needed a place to stay. This was the only campground we could find nearby that was open. When we arrived around 1 in the afternoon, there was a note on the office door that no one was available to call a phone number. We called the number and were told to pick a site that the owner would return after 4 in the afternoon. We drove around the campground where there were large trees and could not figure out where each campsite began and ended or the amenities at the site. We finally parked by the office and walked around to find a campsite. We discovered that they had a paved area where we could park for the night. We pulled into one of the sites, unhooked the RV, and started setting up. The electrical did not work. We had to hook everything up again and try and different site. The second site did have electric, water, and sewer. These sites were in an open parking lot with no trees. When the owner finally came by, she did not have change for cash so she only charged us $30 instead of the usual $35. She told us her husband died in 2008 and she was trying to run the campground alone. It appears that there has been very little maintenance in many years.
We will NOT stay here again. - Athens4me

Older park not in great shape, but only one in the area open all year. They have seasonals on the wooded sites; we were there only for a night, so they put is in the big gravel lot where you park bumper to bumper with other units and there is very little space in between. But it was winter & wet and we did not get stuck! We would have been more disappointed if we had not read the reviews first, but very little choice in the area for winter! - chasing60
