Overall Experience 

July 8-14, 2014

We stayed here a week in July 2014 while visiting family. E/W hookups with well-maintained dump station a few hundred yards away (behind a small brick building which sits between the two RV storage areas - turn at Elk Grove Rd. and you should see the itty bitty sign showing a trailer). Campground was easy to find. We paid by check so went to Travel Office to check in and pay (it is next to the Fitness Center). The staff stayed after 5 when we called and told them we were on site and on our way. (There was also a drop box for those overnighting who could not get to the office). Everyone we encountered was extremely courteous and friendly. Campground was quiet, clean. We did use our jacks and pads, but our site was not terribly off level. There was only one other camper there the entire week so appears it is underutilized. A couple of sites were pull through which we appreciated. No shaded RV spots, although two of the corner spots had some shade area for picnic table. Two fire rings were set in center of the campground for group use I guess. Very small Shoppette with gas (a little high we thought); we did use the car wash located behind. Plenty of fast foods outside of gate. Convenient to Richmond-Petersburg metro area, but read the directions very carefully! We turned right instead of left when coming from south and ended up having to back up rig and toad in a dead-end/apartment complex entrance. Not pretty. BTW: We never saw the aforementioned wildlife – elk or other. However, photos on the Web site show an open forested area that now appears to be fenced off. Te price of $20 did seem a little high given the lack of amenities, especially when compared to our next stop – a COE site with E/W alongside a beautiful lake with swimming, fishing, etc. for $12 a night with our America Beautiful Senior Pass. But Richmond is a big city area with high cost of living to match, so I suspect it is that "location, location, location" idea. Private campground further up I-95 with full hookups was in the $50-60 range, so this was still a bargain for us since we were primarily sleeping and eating breakfast at the site. Will definitely stay again.
