As others mentioned, the road coming into this park was hilly and curvy, but not the worse that I've been on. The truck and trailer handled it fine. We arrived at the park a little after 9pm and were unaware that they closed the gates at 10pm. If we had been later we would not have been able to get in. This being said, we had friends who were an hour behind us and the park host was very accommodating and gave us a number for them to call when they were on 822, so that he could be here to let them in and register them. We were in campground A site 49, and our friends were in site 47. Both sites were easy back-ins and were very level; they had a type of ashy dirt on the ground that was somewhat messy when it rained. Our site was on top of a steep hill with a drop off behind our site that dropped down to the lake. There was a bathroom in campground A with flush toilets and sinks, but no showers. The shower house was down the hill between campground A and B. There were 4 flush toilets in there and 4 showers. The one night I used the shower, I was in the last stall and had very little to no water pressure. Daughter was in another stall and I could hear the water beating on her. On the TV antenna we received a fair amount of over the air channels. The different employees of the park system we met were all very nice. Did notice the sheriff for Patrick County driving through many times. The dump station was another slight issue. To get to it, you had to do a very wide swing out of campground A. There were dump areas on either side but it would only accommodate one trailer at a time. It was on a slope, so was hard to completely drain your downhill tank. We were lucky that we were the only ones here to dump at the time, but could see there being a problem if there were more than one waiting. You could easily have people from the campground below and above waiting to dump. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Park is located on Philpott lake with good boating access but limited number of sites at near lake level for those that like to access boat from site. Lake is popular for fishing - I saw school of fish swimming near shore line right below my campsite. Roads are winding and can be steep but they are passable. Big rigs just need to take it slow and I did see some large rigs while there. This is a popular location for locals - most of the neighbors lived within 25 miles of the lake and they visit often. They said it's almost impossible to get a reservation on the weekend and the site markers showed most sites reserved for the upcoming weekend. The bathrooms were passable but the campground was quiet during the week so hopefully they will clean more frequently when the campground is full. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We have camped here many times over the years. The park is nicely situated on Philpott Lake with wonderful views, boat ramp, swimming area and lake front sites. Big Rigs need to plan ahead as only a limited number of sites can accommodate anything over 35 feet. It's important to note that many sites would accommodate them, but there is no way to back into most of them as the campground roads are very very narrow. I'm at 55ft total length and struggle to drive through the campground. To us this is not that big of a problem given the beauty of the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
