    Davidson River campground

    I'm taking the family camping in a couple of weeks and would like feedback on the Davidson River Campground. We're planning to just stay there Saturday night.

    What I'd like to know is:

    1) can we forego a reservation and just pick a site when we get there?

    2) are there sections of the campground that are typically quiet?

    It's a very busy campground. If you don't have a reservation you will probably not get a site.

    On a typical weekend, it's no vacancy after noon on Friday.

    Lake Powhatan is much less popular and more likely to have something open.

    Enh, it's probably the most popular of the campgrounds in the area. Good facilities, safe, well populated, but very busy especially in peak months. Whether you'll get a site or not is a crap shoot in my experience.

    I've always liked Poplar - especially the 107/108 corner. I'm using an old map, and am assuming the numbers are still the same. That section is slightly uphill from the bath house in both directions, but you have woods behind you and there's decent space between all the neighbors. If there's something going on at the amphitheater, you can hike to it easily on an access path.

    Good luck.
    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

    make a reservation like the others said to make sure you get a spot... it's usually pretty quiet... it's awesome for kids...

    dogwood loop is the least shaded and mostly trailers/motorhomes... all the other loops are pretty nice with good spacing and shade...
    i need to develop my crashing skills...
