Pocahontas State Park – Chesterfield VA

RATING: ♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 6 days
  • Cost per night: $37.50
  • Discount: None
  • Hook ups: 50 amp electric, water, but no sewer.
  • Site number/quality: #87. Gravel pad. Very level. Gravel seating area. Thickly wooded, but site was cleared. Easy parking. Our site is the newer “End Loop”, and was quite large. Quiet and fairly secluded. 
  • Park quality: Nice state park, with very nice campground. Not far from Richmond. Close to shopping in Chesterfield.
  • Access: Away from highways. Four miles off VA-10 and 15 miles off I-95.
  • Connectivity: Verizon strong, AT&T strong with antenna, T-Mobile strong.
  • Return yes/no?: Would love to.
  • Notes: There are lots of well maintained hiking trails in the park, and two lakes. There is also a small museum about the CCC, Civilian Conservation Corps, which originally built the park during the Depression. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy most of the time we were here, so we weren’t able to enjoy the park as much as we had hoped. Becky took a day to drive into Richmond and take some pictures along the Canal Walk.
