So Peaceful. We were at Camp Burson Hungry Mother State Park. It was just an over night stay would had liked to stay longer, plenty of hiking trails, however, the weather was not cooperating with us. There are pull through sites that looked as long as 65ft. We were in site 15, back in. Plenty of room for our 30ft class A with a Tow. Separate spot for car. Only 4 miles down the road from a Walmart, Walgreens and a few other stores just in case you need something. Camp Host came knocking at the door to greet us thought very nice touch. Would recommend and hope to come back for a longer stay.

Great park that is clean and well kept. A sprawling park that offers a beach, canoe, kayak, paddle board and peddle boat rentals. Many trails to choose from if you are a hiker. We stayed at Burson camp which required us to walk or drive into the park to access the water sports.

Second time thru. Beautiful park. Lots of hiking trails. This time of year RV limited to just one camping area; but have full hook up & wifi. Hardly any other RV here, so the wifi is strong. There is a Wal-Mart right a the main (southern ) entrance - very handy. For big rigs, the manoeuvrability area is tight. Best done in day light.

Gorgeous Park
Wife and I spent 5 days here during mid-October 2017. The leaves were beautiful and the trails fantastic. We had a wonderful time strolling by the nearly deserted lake (love off season). We have a 33 foot 5th wheel and long bed 1-ton truck so we are right at 50 feet long. Our reservation was in Camp Burson, where we arrived after dark. We had a very difficult time figuring out where to park on the first night, and an equally difficult time navigating the tight turns abutted by many trees. I don't think the park should accept reservations for over 30 feet, it is just too tight. We walked through Creekside campground and it was equally tight. Some locals who had been going there for years had no problems, but we had a dreadful time navigating our rig here.

You Have to Go To Creekside.
Beautiful place. Not sure why this place isn't a straight 5 star. They have 3 Campgrounds, we want thru Burson Campground first and it wasn't bad, but creekside was much cooler. Shaded, also has full hookups, little tight for big rigs (we have a 35' fifth wheel) but worth it if you like more privacy and scenery. Lots for kids to do. This is a little gem. I could go on.... Would go back no doubt..

Great Park - Nice People!
The sites are a little closer than most state parks, but nice and level. The people are very friendly and the state park staff are awesome. It's definitely got that Southwest VA hospitality and feel.

Hidden Gem
There's a reason why this park was named number 1 in the state. There's an awesome lake with miles of hiking trails This park has lots of amenities including a restaurant, 2 campgrounds, picnic shelters and a swimming area .

There are two places for RVs. One is in the back of the park, older growth trees by the creek and lake, but the sites are smaller. The RV sites at the front are newer and more open but smaller trees-definitely easier to get in and out of though. The tent sites are nothing short of amazing and are on the side of the mountain with decks.
