    ok, Now I know I am waiting until the last minute but we are planning a trip to deep bottoms this weekend. I just assumed that there was camping areas close by as we would like to stay a couple of days (Tent camp). But to my surprise nothing is there. Can someone tell me if there is some place that camping is allowed close by? Maybe open places on the river to camp...

    or Pochontas State park are the only places I know of but I wouldn't say tehy are close. Are you launching from a boat at deep bottom? You could launch from Dutch Gap thats closer to Pochontas state park.

    There are probably some closer, but the only one I know of DAllison referenced and that's Chickahominy Riverfront Park. The good thing is you can just stay on RT.5 past the turn off to Deep Bottom and go about 30 minutes and you'll be there.
