Staunton River is one of our 37 Virginia State Parks. Please visit our official page at http://www.facebook.com/virginiastateparks
The park was recognized in 2007 as a National Historic Landmark and a Virginia Historic Landmark. Many structures in the park, including the cabins, pool-house and picnic shelters, are little changed from when they were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s. Tucked away in south central Virginia, the park lies between the Dan and Staunton Rivers at the threshold of Buggs Island Lake (also known as Kerr Reservoir). The largest lake in Virginia is only one of the park’s many attractions, which include an Olympic size pool with a 70-foot waterslide, a smaller log slide and the Pollywog Pond, which is a water playground for children (there is a size limit on this pool). The shaded campgrounds, rustic cabins, picturesque picnic shelters, well-maintained nature trails, and plenty of exciting outdoor opportunities for the whole family make Staunton River State Park the perfect place for your vacation.

Beautiful small park with wonderful camp sites and even better people. I love the concept of a "camp host" who is right there in the campground with you. Kudos to Rose Marie and Thomas (as well as their adorable dog, Hazel.) Great place for star gazing and family time.
Another gem in Virginia State Park system. Beautiful park with plenty a picnicking and playground areas. We were there for just the day. The day was sunny and warm but just breezy enough were it would have made swimming was just a little too cool for our liking, so we didn't use the pool. It looked really nice though. Actually, pretty much all we did was picnic and watch the little one play. Very relaxing. They have a nice visitors center with a great gift shop that has lots of nice things to purchase. One of the best gift shops we've encountered at the 20 or so parks we've visited so far.
