We had a great day at this park. The weather was perfect and we had a relaxing time on the mountain lake. There is plenty to do, like camping, hiking, cookouts, fishing, lake cruising, and much more. The workers here are very helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the day trip and cruising the lake. Great for young kids to learn... More

We stayed in tents at the White Oak campground for three nights. Bathroom was cleaned regularly and the campsites were large, but ground a little hard for tents. Hiking trails well maintained. We took the one that starts at campground and there was great overlook of the lake. Blue suck falls was disappointing as it was too dry, but the... More

Nice campground. Gravel and level sites. Nice roads to ride bikes on. The sites in the center of the campground don't have much shade. The outer rim towards inside furthest from the entrance are much nicer sites with more shade. The only thing I did not like was the drainage converts on either side of all the sites on this... More

We took our one year old to the beach for the day. It was clean and well maintained. There was plenty of room to set up our pop-up. This is a great beach for small kids. We will return.

Do you want to camp out in the woods, stay in a rustic cabin? The reservation for the latter is a year long. They have fishing, swimming, hiking, educational programs, picnic areas and beautiful scenery.

Beautiful VA State Park. Campground is quiet, exceptionally clean facilities, safe and friendly host in White Oak section. Nice swimming beach at small lake with boat rentals. Hiking and mountain biking trails. Creeks for wading. Decent restaurant with friendly staff.

We stayed here for three nights at White Oak campground and had a blast. The campground is beautiful and spacious. The bathroom and shower house are both very clean. We hiked right from the campground and biked around. We had fun fishing at the lake. We will definitely be going back!!

Our family stayed in cabin 29 for a week. It was a great experience and we will return. First, I want to mention the internet/cell service since everyone is interested in that. Verizon service works great at the beach, restaurant, and main office. There is also WiFi service at these locations, but no cell service for other providers. I did... More
