We came here during Hurricane Irene to get away from the storm. This campground is very easy to find directions. We checked in after hours, this was very easy. A map and instructions for the gate were attached to a very visible board at the office with our name on them. Sites were fairly level and restrooms were very clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly. Some of the posted operation times were incorrect however, these are very minor things. Overall this was a wonderful experience for a very bad weekend. Thank you.
It had been some 7 years since our last stay at this campground. This campground is very peaceful and "rustic," with completely wooded sites all of which are shaded. The bike trails are fabulous. You can ride to Yorktown, VA without getting on a highway (approx. 20 miles away). It's close to tourism sites (Colonial Wmsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown National Battlefield). The bathhouses have just been upgraded and were very clean and well kept. Some highway noise and the occasional train, but what do you expect I-64 is less than 200 yards away, as is the R/R tracks. The ticks were a problem however, you ARE in the woods if you clean the area around your campsite of leaves and that type of debris and spray Yard Guard the pests are minimal. I was here 10 days and found 2 ticks, both while hiking in the woods. Yes, there are other sites within 20-25 miles of this campground but none with the same natural beauty. I give it and 8 only because it has no sewer. Everything else is fine.
The Park is right on the Chesapeake Bay. Beautiful view of sun rise. Facilities are very clean and well maintained. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Fishing, swimming beach, pavilion and play ground. No sewer hook-ups must either tow to dump station or use portable sewer tank and drive it to dump station. Not bad for weekenders and longer than 3-4 days and you will need to dump. No camp store, but convenience store is only about 2 miles and major grocer is about 10. Really nice place to sun and relax and fish.
