Comments

Spoiler Alert: We really liked this park. Having arrived early in the afternoon and having left late the next morning, we wished we could have stayed longer than just one night.

The RV sites in this campground are in three different areas: a parking lot like area, with pull-through and back-in sites but no sewer, which is where we were; then a beautiful lake area; and finally an overview area, also with pull-through and back-in spots.

It is a lovely park to walk through — large, quiet, picturesque. We saw several mama ducks with their babies in tow, so considering I-81 is just miles away, the park definitely made us feel like we had some space to breathe and the quiet to enjoy it.

On the downside, the wifi was poor, even though it was a Tuesday night and the park was not crowded. But our Verizon hotspot worked just fine.

The location is convenient to quite a few historical attractions, including Woodrow Wilson’s Presidential Library (9 miles), Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello (39 miles), and Ash Lawn, which is James Monroe’s home (41 miles). We’ve been to Monticello and Ash Lawn, which are of course completely worth touring, but unfortunately not Wilson’s Presidential Library. We’ll have to do that next time!
