Pocahontas State Park Reviews
Absolutely love this place! My son has taken to trail riding and the park has so many well maintained trails for all abilities! Love blueberry but my son says it’s boring, so we ride everywhere... more »
Well spaced and level campsites here. Pocahontas Park occupies nearly 8000 acres 20 miles south of Richmond. Lots of great hiking trails, a large pool complex, archery range and even a small museum.... more »
Pocahontas is by far my favorite VA state park. They have the best mountain bike trails around as well as nice hiking trails. They have a nice fishing area, water craft rentals and the coolest little water park at their pool. We recently stayed in a camp cabin which was not real comfortable but suited our needs. Love this park and will visit again soon
Too grand and spread vastly with beautiful landscapes. Included a big pool and lot of trials to ride and hike on. Perfectly trailed for bikes as I saw so many riders enjoying extreme biking experience. Loved the greenery and the maintained trails with its trims and curves. Kayaking and boat riding too available. What a perfect place for a good eve or morning walk/rice.
