Discover Pocahontas State Park, VA


Roughly 20 miles south of Richmond, VA lies the awe-inspiring Pocahontas State Park. With 7,925 acres of lush land, this state park features more than 64 miles of exciting hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails. Thanks to its location and landscape, this park ranks among the most diverse in the whole country. Some 1,800 different species of animals and plants call Pocahontas State Park their home. These include blueberry bushes, salamanders, woodpeckers, squirrels, Eastern fenced lizards, and barred owls, just to name a few.

Here, you can enjoy a relaxing boating trip, do some RV camping, or learn about the history of the state and the natural environment of the park. Of course, you can also do some fishing or pay a visit to the park's aquatic center, which boasts several water slides and pools.

Since the park is no more than two miles west of Chesterfield, VA and some 18 miles from Petersburg, VA, your best option would be to book an RV in Chesterfield County. Experience the park to its fullest, explore the surrounding areas, and make the most out of your motorhome camping vacation.

Getting Outdoors

Pocahontas State Park offers plenty of outdoor activities to those who relish being in nature. One of the most popular activities is swimming. Visit the park's Aquatic Recreation Center, where you'll find a number of different swimming pools for adults and children alike. Aside from the pools, there's also a fountain wet deck, as well as plenty of water slides.

Horse lovers will rejoice knowing that there are more than 13 miles of horseback riding trails within the park. Visitors will have to bring their own horses or lease them from nearby farms, since there are no horse rentals or overnight accommodations for the horses at the park.

Test your patience and your fishing gear at Beaver Lake or Swift Creek. Keep in mind that you'll need a fishing license, but in case you don't have one, you can get one from the park's authorities. Beaver Lake features a concrete boat ramp, so feel free to either bring your own boat or rent one here, as rowboats, kayaks, and canoes are available.

Hunting is allowed during November and December each year. Those looking to hunt will need to reserve their spot around late September.

Picnicking is another popular pastime at Pocahontas State Park. You can choose from seven designated pavilions. These are typically divided by size, so you can pick the one that works best for your group. There are also numerous picnic tables scattered around the park.

Camping at Pocahontas State Park

As far as RV camping is concerned, guests can choose from more than 100 sites. Each of these sites features water hookups, as well as 20- and 30-amp electrical hookups. Some sites even have 50-amp hookups. In order to do some RV camping at Pocahontas State Park, you will need an RV that is no longer than 40 feet. However, if your RV is longer than 40 feet, you can stay at one of the Buddy sites, which are designed for large groups and can accommodate vehicles up to 50 feet long.

Sewer hookups aren't available, but bathrooms and hot showers are nearby. Additional amenities include lantern holders, grills, and picnic tables. If you're worried about potentially hot and sunny weather, you can opt for a shaded site instead of an open site.

Aside from the standard state park RV camping options, six cabins and four yurts are available. These are somewhat primitive, as they don't have air conditioning and heating, and you'll have to reserve at least two nights if you want to make a reservation.

Much like any other state park in Virginia, Pocahontas State Park campers are allowed to bring their pets along, provided they're supervised and kept on a leash. Visitors are also encouraged to review the state park pet policy prior to visiting, as it's subject to change.

Explore the Area

When your Pocahontas State Park camping experience has come to an end, take some time to explore the cities and attractions nearby. Some 20 miles southeast of the park, you'll find Keystone Tractor Museum in Colonial Heights. Here, you can witness the early days of the automotive industry and check out vehicle models that date back to the 1920s and 1930s.

Learn about the historical heritage of the area, and visit the Historic St. John's Church in Richmond, VA. The location is famous for being the place where Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and other colonial leaders made crucial decisions that would shape American history.

You might also want to consider visiting the Richmond Jazz Festival. This event is renowned for its lively atmosphere, great cuisine, and the fact that it typically features some of the best-known names in the world of jazz, blues, and funk.

Adrenaline junkies should check out Southside Speedway in Chesterfield, VA. This oval race track is also known as the toughest track in the South and offers exhilarating bumper-to-bumper action.

Those camping in an RV near Chesterfield will find plenty of restaurants located at the southern edge of the town. These range from traditional restaurants and fast food joints to Chinese and Mexican restaurants. Several gas stations are also scattered around the town, making it easy to fill up the RV rental and hit the road again.
