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

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

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

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

Campground was convenient for our needs. Close to Altavista and Lynchburg. Within walking distance of the lake dam, boat landing and park. Entrance and exit were steep hills. Area is quiet and in the country. - macevir

Think of this park as a work in progress. Very good work. It's on a dead end road to Leesville lake, a 17 mile long man-made lake. It's near the end of the road in a wooded setting on one side of the road, and across the road it's much more open. Owners are motivated to provide top notch service as well as enhance and expand the park. Quick overnight for us so didn't see the restrooms or showers. The pool looked good. The utilities were all good. Owners are just fabulous people. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. - DRKM

Leesville Lake Campground 3129 Gallows Rd Gretna, VA (434) 818-1177 This was an overnight stop for us on Memorial Day 2018. The campground is 12 miles off HWY 29 BUS and a stones throw from the Leesville Dam #7 Boat Ramp. Upon arriving, we were greeted by the owner and checked in fairly quickly. The campground is located on both sides of Gallows Road with the office, bath house and pool on the left hand side as you arrive. All the campground roads and sites are gravel and the sites around the office are on a hill, yet I never had to throw the truck into four wheel to get our 33 foot fifth wheel around. Our campsite (Number 1) was level and had woods between us and the next campsite. The campground is Full Hook Up (50/30/20 Amp). The area had plenty of Broadcast TV Channels. The majority of campers looked seasonal, but I was impressed that the campground was neat and clean. We never used the facilities, but a quick look after checking in at the bath house, laundry room and pool area revealed that they were just as clean. A lot of friendly families and the campground was quite as darkness fell. We would definitely stay here again. - The Wandering Berries

We stayed here the first week of October in site B13 pull-thru which was one of the easiest ones you may find. Utilities were good, but I have to say there alot of trees in the KOA & even a seasoned veteran coach driver may find the maneuvering a bit tight. If you have satellite tv, I doubt that you will be able to get signal, but on the realistic side, you are literally minutes from the most pristine part of the Blue Ridge Parkway & the views are spectacular & there are quite a few of challenging hikes to do. Fuel & groceries are a bout a 30 minute drive to Lynchburg. You might want to note that around the time we were there, the park seems to have an issue with stink bugs that will find their way into your unit & by mid October, the Chinese ladybugs come to town in a large way. Other than that, the park owners are really nice & helpful & will do their best to see that your stay is good. - Smooth Running

Very nice park and friendly staff. The site where we stayed was VERY close to our neighbor. Lots of trees and lot of things for children to do. - TXRoadWarrior

This is a nice campground if a bit off the beaten path. The park itself is nice; very clean. We only stayed overnight and everything at our site worked great. It's about 1/2 hour from Natural Bridge and at least 1/2 hour from I-81. Roads inside the park can be a bit tricky. - Catsinatrailer

This is just 3 full-hookup sites in the parking lot of the Bedford Visitors Center. Rigs over 30 ft are going to have a hard time, as the spots are in a line along the side of the parking lot. They do not take reservations, but according to the county visitors manager, they do stay full in the summer. They advertise overnight stops only, but it can be arranged to stay 2 nights if necessary. - MThome

It is what it is. Full hook-up sites at the Welcome Center. Advertizes one night only, however they asked us how many nights we wanted, so clearly more nights are available. Nice Welcome center. A bit expensive for what you get, but we would stay here again if we needed FHU. Can dry camp for $10. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

The Bedford VA Visitors Center is located at the same place as the National D-Day Memorial (www.dday.org) - the Memorial is on a hilltop directly behind the visitor's center. The visitor's center was kind enough to install 3 RV hook-ups (w/e/sewer) in their side parking lot. Very good spots other than they are slightly sloped. Good water pressure, great power stability, and Wi-Fi from the center is included. At only $25 a night - great! While they do advertise only one night, ask - you may be able to stay longer if there's no events happening. There's also an elementary school across from the RV spots with a walking track! - TheGrandMan

We had reservations for site 64. We drove through the campground and realized the site was too small for us to enjoy, so we made other plans and stayed at a commercial campground. The weather was a factor in our decision as it was hot and humid that day and without hookups we would have no ability for air conditioning or showers. There are no water hookups, and the sites looked old and needed some TLC. We did not use the bathrooms, so I have no comments for them. This is a boondocking campground. This is an old campground and the sites are very small. I have a 22-foot travel trailer and tow with an 18-foot SUV, so we like to have a little over 40 feet in our campsite. We would not stay here. - pavefan

Pleasant and nice campground, very well maintained. Realize this is an older parkway campground that is small and the sites are in general designed for smaller campers. When researching sites on the website, when it says a site is 30 ft long, realize the site driveway is what's 30 ft long, and can be angled (the longer angle measurement is 30 ft.) Generally this will not accommodate an actual 30 ft trailer, and then there is the problem of parking your tow vehicle. The pull-through sites are best for longer rigs, not the back-ins. Plenty of beautiful local hikes in the area, very pleased with our visit. - dxr

A park with real potential, but I had a few issues with it. The park has no services or showers, which is fine, but they allow generator use all day long, rather than just between certain hours, which destroys the peace. If that weren't bad enough, one day there were mowers running all day, and another day, they had a massive chipper operating for hours, shredding trees. It was very noisy. The RV side of the park is cramped, and there was only one spot on my site where I could get my slide out. I noticed this problem with a number of the sites. There are some sites where you will not be able to open any slides. I did walk through the tent side of the park one day, and it was really nice. They allow camper vans and pickup campers on that side. The sites are three times as big, and extremely private in that area. There is no cell service, even by antenna, and no wifi. - KAP99
