  • Amazing mountain bike trails on the north side. The nicest people on the bike trails - by example, I lost track of a couple of kids (they got ahead of me) and somebody tracked them down for me. But....  more

  • I’ve been here several times now hiking trails. It’s quite lovely here. Very peaceful. There’s a nice waterfall. There’s lots of little bridges and benches scattered throughout the hiking trails...

  • We really enjoyed our stay at the Pocahontas State Park. We rented the cabins. Entrance fees are reasonable and park staff very helpful. There are a lot of small and larger trails. The lake is quiet and lots of natural views. We saw people paddle boating, kayaking and saw a few people fishing as well. The lake area is quaint and peaceful. There is also swimming pool enough to keep the kids occupied. I believe it is in the park property and people who rent cabins etc get a discount on the entry fee. The campground is well organized with barbecue grills, camp fire. Each campground had 5-6 cluster of cabins with 1-4 bunk beds. Its bare minimum but just perfect for camping. Toilets with showers are close by to the cabins. Definitely a perfect place to enjoy the nature, hike, boat or bike. We definitely had a good time and enjoyed our visit. Also for some reason there were not a lot of mosquitoes in early August but I did see a few dear running around.
  • Great park all around, and not too many bugs (I think.) There's something for everyone, biking, kayaking, you name it. Really nice Bbq spots with most areas fitting up to 30 people. Camping is nice and really well organized, although some campsites can be very close to each other. The entrance fee you pay is fair and boat rental prices are affordable. Every week there's some kind of event going on. Enjoy your stay!
