lake anna state park Campground
Lake Anna State Park Campground is a beautiful campground located in Spotsylvania County Virginia. This Virginia State Park offers a number of cabins, bunkhouses, yurts, tent camp sites, and RV campsites. Amenities include bath houses with laundry rooms, drink vending machines, camp hosts, water/electric hookup, and a private campground path to the lake.
We booked campsite (RV water/electric) #40 and stayed for three nights. We really enjoyed our stay in this quiet and beautiful campground. The cost was $40.00 per night (on the more expensive end of sites), but we found that there were lots of amenities to support the cost including swim passes to the lake.
We reserved a site specific campsite (#40). Check in is at 4:00 but we didn’t arrive until 6:00. The campground office was closed so we had a moment where we weren’t sure what to do. Walking up to the building we saw that they left us an envelope with EVERYTHING we needed. Car tags, site tags, maps, trail maps, and other information. It was perfect, so don’t worry if you get there late.
Tent sites & RV Campsites
The sites were very nice. We checked out the whole campground and all of the sites were level. The tent sites were spaced a good distance apart but not as far apart as the water/electric sites. We chose site 40, but we wish we had chosen site 42. It is worth it to look at the campground map and not just individual site photos. Our site sat almost parallel with the road and so the view on one side was just road, and it was in full sun almost the entire day.
Each site had a tent pad with small (pleasant) gravel, a fire ring with attached grate (no separate grill), and a picnic table. At our site, we found the picnic table was really close to the parking area and too heavy to move. We were able to put our Eddie Bauer canopy over the picnic table, and it was great.
In the tent pad area we set up the kids play teepee on foam play mats, and their toys. They had lots of room to run around and play.
Wifi, Water, & Electric hookups
The site we booked (#40) said it was a 50 amp hookup. We bought a dog bone adapter (our pop up is a 30 amp) in case we needed to adapt the amps. It turns out we didn’t need it because they offered a 30 amp, 50 amp, and a 110V outlet all in the same post.
It was perfect because we were running so many things in the camper (ice maker, A/C, & plug in cooler), that we needed to run our string lights using the 110V outlet and an outdoor extension cord).
There was no wifi that we could find. I was able to use my phone (AT&T- 2 bars) as a hotspot for my lap top.
The bath houses (comfort stations)
The bath houses were clean (until Sunday, and then things got messy). There were 4 stalls (1 accessible) and 3 sinks in the restrooms, no air conditioning. The showers were REALLY large and had separate entrances from the outside of the building. There was plenty of room to set our stuff and the shower pressure was strong. The bath house on the full hookup side of the campground offered a nice laundry room. There were a couple of washers/dryers a big tub sink and a large folding area. It had a change machine too.
camping Cabins at lake anna state park
The camping cabins at Lake Anna State Park Campground were so cute. They were well spaced out and had the cutest little front porches. Each had a picnic table and a fire ring with a grate.
camping in yurts at lake anna state park
The yurts were our favorite thing ever. We walked down the little road to the yurts at least three times. They were situated in the most beautiful expanse of woods. Each had a large deck around the outside that stepped down to a picnic table, fire ring, and parking area. We did peek inside an empty yurt and it looked amazing. There was a big bed, table with chairs, and a couple of armchairs. Each had a glass dome at the top that could be opened using a crank. I am assuming to allow hot air out. We didn’t see bathrooms or air conditioning, but they are located just next to the bathhouse.
Our conclusion about camping at lake anna state park Campground in virginia
We loved it! This is SUCH a great campground. Beautiful and natural, the campsites were spaced out so well. The bathhouses were clean and nice. Most importantly, the showers were not inside the same area as the toilets (if you are worried about Coronavirus). The camp hosts could be seen in their golf cart many times a day checking on things and chatting with folks. The atmosphere was quiet and the campground was well planned out.
