We are conveniently located less than a mile off of I-95, just 12 miles south of Petersburg, and 35 miles to downtown Richmond.


From I-95, take exit 41 to merge onto VA-35 S/Courtland Rd. Turn right onto the campground at Shaker's restaurant. You've arrived at your home away from home!



If there is anything we can do to improve your stay, please let us know about it right away. We have office hours 9am - 7pm Monday - Friday and 10am - 7pm on the weekends. Help numbers are posted on the office door for after hours support.

We'd love for you to leave a review and let other campers know what they can expect when stopping at the South 40 Campground and camping in the heart of VA.


Minimum 14 Night Stay Required

Virgnia Governor, Ralph Northam, issued an executive order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic which requires a minimum 14 night stay at any campground, as of April 1, 2020. We will be doing our part for the safety of our guests, staff, and their families by following the recommendations of our government and health experts. We are sad that we are unable to offer you and your family a place to stop if you are just traveling through, and we wish you health and safety in your journey. 

We are open, and we welcome you to spend at least two weeks with us. Recognizing the hardships on all those travelling during these times, we are offering a special 2-week rate for new bookings.  Call our office for more information. 804-732-8345

Social distancing at it's finest in the heart of VA!
