What a great spot just south of Richmond City. For anyone in RVA who loves Pocahontas State park this is in the area and is a big step up. Amy greeted us in her paint covered apron as she stepped out of the art space she has set up for classes and art gatherings. She showed us around and offered all kinds of things to do from kayaks to bike rides and her property had all kinds of kid-friendly things to do including a tree house. The property is located beside a giant state park with playgrounds, hiking, courts and fields. If you have any questions, Amy was super helpful before and during the stay.
You camp at the front of the property and Amy has enough sites for 10 or so tents. Each site is short mowed grass and has a fire ring under a giant open sky. During the day you do hear the going’s on in the park but at night it is super quiet. There is plenty of parking and a field to spread out and play. It is a short walk downhill to the dock which has a pretty impressive tiki bar and grill set up overlooking the water. I got to sit and relax while my son played in the sand box then back up to the tree house, tightrope, tetherball and rope swing.
We had an awesome time and hope to go back soon, I just hope I can convince some other families to join the fun.

Pros: This site ended up being OK for a rainy weekend. The art room was a great respite from the weather.

Cons: We were literally staying in overgrown brush. On one side of the brush was a public park, complete with soccer fields (and lighting). On the other side were houses. At no point did this feel like a true camping experience, nor was it a retreat.

The dock is lovely, as long as you don't look out to the left where you'll see a major highway. There are kayaks and other fun things to do, but the floating dock sits quite high and would make any entry into the water difficult and potentially dangerous. If you plan to use life vests, plan to bring your own as the ones provided are covered in stink bugs.

Each night you can fall asleep to the "relaxing" hum of traffic and you can view the twinkling stadium lights next door. Each morning you can wake to the host's neighbors walking their dog.

Really, the only redeeming quality about this site is the art room. It was great for 2 four year olds. If weather had been pleasant, however, the whole trip would have been extremely disappointing. Calling this a primitive campsite is a joke.
