We had reservations for four nights for a "shakedown" of our new camper, but enjoyed this park and the area so much that we ended up staying eight nights instead. The park has two loops. A is more rustic and has smaller sites suitable for tents, pop-ups and small travel trailers. B loop has larger sites and can accommodate campers up to 45'. B loop sites are a few dollars more than A loop sites. There is also a group camping area. Rental cabins are available and they are a ways away from the camping loops. Restrooms and showers at Chippokes were clean and in good working order. Showers were private and had locking doors. There is a laundry room on Loop B, although we didn't use it. The park operates a pool (summer only), visitor's center, farm and forestry museum, a plantation house and a mansion. Mansion and plantation house tours are done on weekends (extended hours in the summer). There are walking/hiking trails and the park offers a 'fossil walk'. We took the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry several times. It's free and only five miles form the park. It can accommodate vehicles up to 12'6" and 28 tons. The ferry docks just a mile from Jamestown Settlement and from there you can either drive or take a free shuttle to Colonial Williamsburg. From C-Williamsburg you can also take a free shuttle to Yorktown Victory Center. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed here during the July 4 holiday week ( 4 nights ) in the B-Loop since we wanted a bigger spot. The B-Loop is only about 2 years old compared to the A-Loop. The A-Loop is good for tent camping and small pop-ups. The sites in the A-Loop are not level and the somewhat steep driveways to level a bigger trailer or motorcoach. The B-Loop is a paved driveway with a pea gravel pad for your picnic table and fire ring. Both the A&B-Loops are near the huge swimming pool to which you get free passes when you camp there. The historic area was cool since I like farming equipment. The coolest thing was watching the fireworks from the banks of the James River at the Visitor Center on the night of July 4th. We could see the fireworks from Surry, Jamestown, Williamsburg, Bush Gardens, and Yorktown. It's only 5 miles from the "free" ferry to Jamestown from the Surry. Surry does have a Dollar Store that carries most grocery items, but the nearest grocery store is across the ferry in Williamsburg or 20 miles down HWY 10 to Smithfield, VA. The only thing I did not like about the state park is the dump station is a long way from both A&B loops. It's on the main park road near the guard station for the park entrance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay at Chippokes but continue to disagree with the $5 per pet per night charge at Virginia State Parks. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
