Check out Outlanders River Camp in Luray - right on the river with great access for swimming/wading/fishing/tubing.
Douthat State Park is awesome as well.
Sherando Lake is gorgeous, though technically a little east of the valley in Albemarle County.
There are too many to mention here. Lots of state park and national forest camp grounds, private parks and many lakes and reservoirs. I'm located in central VA and very familiar with the area, so let me know if you have any specific questions. Have fun!
