8 RV Parks near Norton, Virginia
Sep 2010 - $15.00
This park is one of the most beautiful wooded parks I have ever been in, but getting here is pretty rough. The road is very curvy and mountainous with 3 hairpin turns. (We take a 35' TT up here). The upper campground has paved road with open sites (5 only) and a bath house with showers. The views here are amazing. The lower campground with 10 very spacious sites is completely wooded, therefore the views are not as good. Sites are not long, therefore there are only a few that large rigs can fit into. Electric only on the sites, but water is available for fill-up near the dump station in the lower campground. - MerryKalia

Nice Park alongside the Powell River in historic SW Virginia. We stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed the park and local sights. The Powell River runs adjacent to this park and makes an excellent backdrop for tent camping or picknicking away from the Trailer. Campers were a nice mix of younger and older neighbors. Very nice stay, made even more pleasant by the owner and his easy going personality. There is a covered picnic area and we were allowed to use the Parks Grills. Every morning we were awakened by a neighbor's rooster. This park is located on Alt 58, which is a very curvy road. Whether you come from the East or West, you will come upon the entrance quickly, so be on the lookout. - Ironmikey72

This is a wonderful family owned campground. Our site was small and close to our neighbor. We had the creek running behind us so that was nice. Had cable with 25 channels and wifi that was slow sometimes. There was a great path on the other side of the creek that was close to 5 miles that ran for the most part by the creek. There was a pavilion with picnic tables and rocking chairs and other seats. The bathrooms were first rate always clean and about the best we have experienced in all our years of camping. - alnal90

We were traveling over Labor Day needing a place to stay for 2 nights on our way to NC. Called the campground and talked to the owner. He had one site left, asked if he needed a credit card he said "Not at all. When can I expect you?" Great service!
Upon arrival we sat at the pavilion and he and other RV'ers gave us some great suggestions for side trips. - Tom and Patty

We loved the park. Rates are cheap. Park is scenic with the remains of railroad tracks, depot (can't go in it), remains of coal mining operation next door, green grass. If you like a quiet place with ruins & history to explore, this park & whole area has plenty of that. We couldn't get the cable TV to work. We mentioned this to the museum where you register, & they told us to check with City Hall, which we didn't do. There are trees planted in the park, but not big enough to give shade. Also there is no sign out on the road showing the location of the campground! The roads are narrow in that area & there isn't any place to make a turn in a big rig, so we were lucky to find it. There is no bathhouse or office, only the Kentucky Coal Museum where you register. I was also disappointed that the mine tour wasn't open & one of the volunteers said it hadn't been open for a year and a half, & it didn't sound like it was going to be open anytime soon. - beefly

This is a small park that is located next to the railroad station, on the grounds of what was once Kentucky's largest coal mining operation. The operation ceased in the 1960's and the the area is being preserved in an attempt to allow people to see what an early twentieth century, company owned, mining town was like. They are shortly going to open a section of the mine for tours. The town of Benham, which ajoins Lynch, has a museum that depicts life in a coal mining town. The park is not fancy. The parking pads are gravel with grassy living areas. There are no public restrooms or showers, so tents or pop ups would not be practical. There is no office. There are no entertainment facilities. You register at the coal mining museum in Benham and drive up to Lynch (about a mile). It is simply a place to park while you explore the history of Lynch/Behham coal mining. It is in close proximity to Kingdom Come State park. This park has hiking trails, a fishing lake with paddle boats, and picnic areas with slides and swings for the kids. - D&M

This a great state park. However, while they say the limit is 38', we are 36' and I would not recommend much longer. We had a new site and it was level for most of the site, but fell off at the far end near the road. With our rig, the front tires had to well off the ground in order to level. As noted, a 30 amp limit and it was OK for the time we were there. - Jeff H

We had intended staying at Cumberland Gap National Historic Park but it was first-come, first-served so we chose this park because we could reserve a site. Great choice. The sites are large, have a table, a fire-pit, a bear pole and are separated from others by trees and bushes. There are very clean bathrooms and a laundry. The sites have 50A electric and water but no sewer. We used the camp showers for 5 nights and found them large and clean with a large bench and several hooks. Some sites are on a slant and we had to back up this slant. But we are quite pleased with our site. But you can rent cabins and yurts with rockers on the decks looking out over the forest. Very nice. The park also has a large pool, a store, a chair lift, a gazebo with a wonderful view over the surrounding hillsides and quite a few trails. There is also the Natural Tunnel but you can't hike in it because trains still run through it. However, they offer a ranger led hike along a river bed (with crossings through the river) to the tunnel and through it when no trains are running. This park has so much to offer that we are glad that we opted to stay here. We drove 1 hour to Cumberland Gap, toured, hiked and then drove back here. - swike

Stayed 4 nights in campground and had an awesome experience. This was the 1st camping trip we took our 6 year old grand daughter on. We stayed on the Lover's Leap loop where the sites are bigger and can be reserved. This park has very nice bath rooms that are very well maintained. The showers are private, outside entrance to 4 separate showers with lockable doors. Also had a nice laundry area. We have camped in GA, SC, NC and now VA. If this is a typical VA state park, then VA blows the other 3 states away. Great hiking trails. We did the birding trail which goes around the Block House and gazebo and it was our least favorite. It was hot and lot of it was not shaded. This is probably a good trail in the Spring in the early morning with wild flowers blooming and birds are more active. We did startle a resting deer and turkey, so that was good. Lover's Leap trail is really good and not too difficult. Rode the chair lift down to the tunnel. Nice short ride and most of it was not too high off the ground. You can hike down and then ride chair lift back up. Keep in mind, chair lift is not always operating and shuts down in the off season. If visiting the park, if at all possible, get down to the tunnel. It is awesome and once down is easy walking. Most people will focus just on the tunnel, take the time to visit the Cart Cabin as well, nice walk! Pool was nice and enjoyed 3 days of swimming. Though one life guard seem to be channeling Billy from Stranger Things, he appeared to think very highly of himself. :-) All the staff were great and there were a lot of Summer interns there. Lots of activities going on and free things they would set up for kids. Site 10, while not shaded, it probably the best site in the Lover's Leap loop. When set up, you could not see your neighbors on the one side or the bathroom on the other. Can't recall exact rate. We will go back! - pbeverly
