Very nice campground

June 18, 2014
Lake Powhatan is a very nice campground.

We camped on 2 separate campsites. We were only able get a reservation without electric for the first night. We switched to an electric site for the next 2 nights.

Overall the rustic site was nicer but the electric site was decent too.

The good:
- new shower/bath houses
- super friendly hosts
- very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway

The bad:
- could use another toilet per bathroom
- could use more electric sites

We stayed here in a Tear Drop Trailer.
