The sites were way to close together to one another. Not enough room or sites for pull behinds, fifth wheels and motorhomes. More suited for popups and tents. Even most of the tent sites had no water or electricity. No real activities for kids. Sorry to say, but we won't be going back!

I camped here in June 2015. In this park, all the facilities are high-quality and well maintained. This is a great place to visit. The lake is very large and scenic. There is a marina with boat rentals and a swimming beach with lifeguards. The woods and forest are beautiful. All the campers were considerate and quiet. The place seems... More

This is where we would hold our family reunions every year. My grandfather loved this place. And so did the whole family.

I've traveled and camped through 42 states, and Virginia is by far the most over-regulated, sign-posting, rule-oriented state. There were at least 6 "You Must Obey This Rule" signs in the first 2 miles on the interstate entering from Tennessee. This park was the same way, with lots of rules for the sake of rules. First state park I've seen... More

Visited with my wife and daughter, and really enjoyed it. This is a nice park with ample parking and a great lake for swimming, boating and fishing. The Rangers were very helpful and very friendly. There are also hiking trails and small cabins for rent. We saw deer and rabbits, and were even able to do a little geocaching while... More

I have been going to Claytor Lake State Park for years. It is a well used park with lots of amenities. You can spend the day or a week. If you are looking to being out in nature with the animals, this is not the park for you. If you are a family looking for something to do with all... More

We love the park. We've utilized the campground multiple times and it's a family friendly stay every time. Each space has a fire ring which makes an enjoyable trip in the fall. One thing to plan for is the lack of septic at each site. That's a bothersome annoyance but it's never stopped us from trying to book a stay... More

The area is quiet. The lake area is beautiful and worth visiting. Go forth and visit this wondrous place. You'll love the area as much as I did. Plus, not far is where they shot the movie "Footloose".
