There are two levels. The upper level is for smaller RVs. The spaces are close together and wooded. The pool and playground are on the upper level.

Because of the length of The two RV Gypsies' RV, they had to park on the lower level, which has big, grassy spaces, and few trees. This was a slow time of year and lots of spaces were available. But they did meet a really nice couple who were just beginning to travel full-time in their RV. The two RV Gypsies hope to meet up again with the Miller's on the road in the future.

The two RV Gypsies took a walk along the edge of the river behind their RV and they were able to zoom in on the images on the wall.

two images on the wall behind the RV

The scene depicted on the wall (Image 1) commemorates the Packet Boat Marshall transporting the body of General Stonewall Jackson form Lynchburg to Lexington on May 14, 1863. The James River and Kanawha Canal operated from 1958 until 1991 on the site of the project's interior drainage portion. The Bateau (a light flat-bottom riverboat) (image 2), is depicted farther north on the wall, operated in shallow water prior to the canal's completion.

Below: The Maury River, formerly known as the North River, is 42.8 miles long. It is part of the Chesapeake Bay. It is the lifeblood of the city of Buena Vista's industry and flows for its entire length in Rockbridge County then flows into the James River at Glasgow, Virginia

unhappy faceThe two RV Gypsies probably will never stay at this campground again because of the trains. The first night, the train horns woke Karen up from a sound sleep. She sat up and said, "What the heck was that?" Then she realized it was the train horn at 2:30 A.M. and again a bit later. She hated the trains when they wintered in Florida, and has not had to suffer through train horns since she left Florida. Other than that, it was an okay place.

There was no TV reception here and no sewer. The water pressure was good here though and most importantly, they had 30 amp electricity. These comments are just the experience of the two RV Gypsies and do not make the campground good or bad in general.
