  • 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.
