Pocahontas State Park

2021, Road Trip, States, Virginia

We have spent the last four nights in Pocahontas State Park near Chesterfield, Virginia west of Richmond at an electric/water site that we reserved online. It’s been a great stay. We’ve been close to some great interpretive sites to expand our understanding of various aspects of American history. Met some cool T@B campers, enjoyed our wooded campsite, taken some wonderful long walks, used the nearby and well appointed laundry room, shopped at the little camp store, chatted with some delightful camp hosts, and generally enjoyed the stay. We agree with the reviews that suggest that this is a great place. It’s got a nice mix of back-in and pull-through sites as well as a good number of first come spots besides the reservable sites. That said, we think the next time we visit the area that we will try to stay on the east side of Richmond and explore that area more thoroughly. Now we’re on to a national forest site for a quick overnight on our way to southern Ohio.
