Just got back from our camping trip at Lake Powhatan Campground. We had a great time the site was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they keep the place nice and tidy. The bathrooms and showers were kept impeccably clean. The lake is nice great place for a relaxing picnic.

This is one of our favorite local spots. Nice camping spot, quiet and heavily wooded with clean bathhouses. Good hiking and nice little lake for swimming but the beach is a flipping mess w/ Canadian goose poop everywhere. Yuck!
Right off the able Ridge Parkway and The NC Arboretum.
