“Great Campground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Claytor Lake State Park is a beautiful state park campground. We stayed in a 32ft fifth wheel in "D" section. Sites were very spacious and easy to park our camper. "D" section is about 1/4 mile from the lake.

“Great campground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Beautiful lake surrounded by mountains with nice sandy beach. Campgrounds have had some improvement since I was last there. Bathhouses were clean and showers were hot. To me, the only thing that would make it perfect would be having sewer available at the campsites and MORE campsites with all amenities. Books up quickly!

“Family Reunion at Claytor Lake Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Five of us families met in the lodge (with six bedrooms) at Claytor Lake State Park the first weekend of November. The kitchen was fully equipped and we had a fire pit and picnic table in the yard. It was very spacious, clean and had nice outdoorsy furnishings. Beds were dorm style - not plush, but not uncomfortable. Our only complaint was we asked to get in before check-in time if possible since three of us families were there by 1, and no promise was made. We know the lodge was vacant but they held out and made us wait till check-in time, in spite of our request. We had to $10 more/day to have a dog there. We had trouble with the gas log fireplace on Saturday, but they sent somebody to fix it. We would be happy to rent it again. Hiking is plentiful and the lake is peaceful to be around, even that time of year.

“Great Place for a Family Reunion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

We held our annual family reunion at Claytor Lake State Park for the 3rd year in a row. It is a fantastic location with nice 2 bedroom cabins, great lake, swimming beach, hiking trails and overall just a very nice park. We rented 4 cabins all located on a circular drive. There is a large grassy area behind the cabins on a gently slope down to the lake. We rented a pontoon boat for 3 days and it was great to be able to take all of the grandchildren out on the lake for tubing. I highly recommend this park for a great place to spend the day trip or a week long vacation.

“Beautiful Park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Claytor Lake is unbelievably beautiful. The cabins are among the best I ever stayed at. The views to the river are amazing. Very comfortable, they have a lovely chimney for intimate fires, are very clean and secure and spacious.

Would stay there again anytime!
