Description

Small Country Campground, in Louisa, Virginia, offers excellent family-oriented amenities and lake and camping games and activities in history-rich Central Virginia. We are located west onto I-64 at Richmond. Reserve you campsite online and make plans to enjoy the beauty and history of Virginia.

Our 25-acre Lake Ruth Ann, with its roped-off five-foot safety area for the small fry and diving platform out deeper, is a great place to swim and sunbathe. Put your boat, or one of our rentals, in at our ramp and fish for crappie, bass, bream or catfish.

We have been to this site several times, usually the stay have been ok. But we have notice a decline over the years in customer service. The straw that broke the camels back happen this week end We we there on 5/23/2014, 5/24/14 and was suppose to leave on the 25th but opted to leave early. This place is not for the family, drinking is rampant. The owners will cuss you out, just out of the blue. The bath rooms had no soap and were dirty smelled horrible. The "lake" were no bigger than a small pond.They charged for every thing. Dirt road provided plenty of dust. Not enough lighting near the store, surprised no one has been hurt through there. Owners seem unstable, I will not go back

We loved this campgrounds. It had something for everyone. The water trampoline and bouncy pillow kept the kids busy along with the lake and pool. No fishing license required because it's a private lake, which was a plus for us because we are from out of state. Very pleased to find clean bathrooms and free showers. The people there were very friendly and they give an awesome military discount!!!

We first visited Small Country over Memorial Day weekend. We were in the "Premium" sites. These sites are nothing but a gravel lot. No shade. It was very hot that weekend so we roasted even with the air going full blast. The facilities are nice. My youngest completely wore herself out on the bounce pillow. Swimming was fine, pool was still pretty cold (I'm guessing not heated). They had a band on the weekend and it was nice. We returned for their Que and Cruz event. Our site was much better this time. We were in a shaded lot. We were disappointed with the lack of vendors and pretty much NO barbecue for the guest to enjoy. Really cool event that supports their volunteer fire department, but food choices were disappointing. Plenty of music to enjoy. Not sure if the event was smaller due to rain over that weekend. Overall, the campground is nice and relaxing. I will most likely return, but will avoid the "premium" sites during the summer. I agree with a previous review. Many of the sites seem to have been overtaken by permanent renters. These sites are nearest to the lake and do not allow for non-permanent campers to enjoy those settings.
