  • I've stayed in quite of few of VAs state parks, and this is one of the nicer ones. I'ts somewhat small, and most of the amenities are huddled close to each other on one side of the lake (which itself ...  more »
  • We have camped at Douthat many times over the last 10 years. The last trip was in March. This is, in my opinion, the best state park in Virginia. They have great camp sites and bath-house facilities. ...  more »

  • Good fishing but the battery on the boat I rented was dead within 15 minutes. I had to row back from the other end of the lake. The attendant said, "Sorry a lot of the batteries are dead even though they say 100% charged. I will tell my boss again". The cabins are clean and stocked well with dishes, stove, microwave and pots & pans. Take trashbags because they only provide 2 bags. I asked for more from the attendant at the store and she said we don't have anymore you will have to ride into town and buy some from Kroger. Our AC died and we had to leave a day early but the park manager said she will refund one night's stay. The cabin are decent but are overdue for a remodeling. However, the staff is very friendly and courteous. There are a lot of great hiking and biking. The lake is fantastic and well stocked with fish. If you like to fish with minnows, bring some because there are none to be found within 50 miles. All in all we had a great time and will definitely go back again!
  • One of my favorite places in the world! I have been visiting Douthat for the past 10 years and loved every visit! there are all kinds of trails for biking and hiking as well as a lake that is great for fishing! If you don't like camping, then the cabins are a wonderful option!
  • We stayed in cabin 10 efficiency. In my opinion best location of all their cabins. Sucks that one has to pay $8 per day to fish.
  • Nice trails. The cabins were a little small. We were supposed to be in a 6 person cabin, but there was only room for 4 to sleep comfortably. I would definitely go back if there wasn't a better state park only an hour from the house. The kids explorer packs were a neat idea, but they were missing some items.
  • Such a great place to go and get away! They have excellent mountain biking trails which are also fantastic for trail running. My family has gone numerous times a year and will continue to do so. We tested the water quality (my sister is certified) for fun and is in good shape - lots of stone flies, may flies, and more - lots of diversity.
