The playgrounds were fine and the beach area quite clean; however, this park is oriented for boaters and has relatively few trails. This is great for a daytrip, but without a boat some of the great attributes are not fully enjoyed.

We spent a couple of nights here - in our Airstream at Camp D, which has electricity/water hookups. The spaces are fairly close together, but it is well designed so you don't feel like you are on top of each other. The park is fantastic...More

Claytor Lake State Park is unbeatable for camping, picnics, boating, parties, fishing, weddings, photographics, wildlife, & great birding. The park staff is great & will help you with anything. Camping is hindered only by a lack of a good reservation system. I once had to...More

Love this state park campground. It's always clean and quite. The sites are large with lots of easy trails to walk or bike. The lake is within walking distance with a nice beach area. The only thing that could be improved is 50 amp service....More

This state park is centered on Claytor Lake, a beautiful setting in SW Virginia. The marina has a wide variety of rental boats and floats at reasonable rental pricing.

Please keep in mind we love State & Nat'l Parks and are in the midst of a coast-to-coast St & Nat'l Park trip. While we find VA State Parks to be very clean w/nice facilities, we also find them to be pricey for out-of-state residents....More
