Date of Stay:  Tuesday July 10 - Thursday July 12, 2012 (2 nights)

Rate:  $34/night

Website:  Glen Maury Park
   101 Maury River Dr
   Buena Vista, VA 24416

Description:  City park on a nice river in a small town.  Paved road up the steep hill leads to small, wooded sites with 50A.  Those sites were too small for us so we were in a green open field with 30A and water next to the river.  We stopped here because it wasn’t far from I-81 and on our way to visit with friends in PA.  Very hot with no shade so it was a challenge to use the AC while on 30A.

Activities:  We just used this as a stop over so we didn’t check out the town very much.  Looked pleasant though.  Several deer hang out in the woods up the hill and a nearby golf course.  Saw a man fly fishing the river.  The park is restoring an old brick house (Paxton House) built around 1830 which overlooks the grassy field.

Trash and Recycle:  Blue trash cans throughout the field but didn’t notice any recycling.
