What a sweet park! We had a site right where the river bends and it provided a fantastic view. The campground has a system of lights on the utility pole which is much lower than we usually see. It was much appreciated as it provides lighting for security but isn't blaring in your eyes at night. We only stayed two days and I wish we could have stayed longer to rent a canoe or kayak. There is a golf driving range right as you enter the park as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A lovely park on the banks of the Chickahominy River. Unfortunately due to the amount of tall vegetation it is hard to see the water from the water front sites. We did not pay the extra $12 PER night for sewer hook-up so we did not have a water view. I think the rates are rather high since cable and WiFi is not included. Even though we had a huge tree on our site we were able to get satellite service and over the air reception. Lots of fisherman putting in at the ramp since there is a big tournament starting on Thursday but they were not intrusive. Will agree with a previous poster that the roads need attention; lots of potholes. Also the dump area needs attention. Very muddy place. Doesn't seem very sanitary. It needs to be surrounded by cement. We would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
On the positive side the location is great for visiting Williamsburg and the colonial triangle. Be wary of the weekends. There can be rowdy fisherman and lots of kids and there can be a lot of commotion. During the week in the fall it was very nice and quiet. We had a nice water view. But the roads need improvement and the site hookups can be strange. There is no cable and it was difficult to get a satellite signal due to the trees. We had to pay the nonresident price so without cable and without Wi-Fi and the weird hookups the price seemed excessive. There is a great bike trail nearby. If you are bringing a boat, this would be a good place to come. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We are in a 39' 5th wheel and have a back-in site with a water view, site 315. Our satellite does not work in the site, but we get plenty over the air stations. Our Verizon Mifi gets a good signal here. When you enter the one way road into the full hook-up sites, the road is easy to navigate; however, the other end has some tight turns with trees. When we leave, we will go out the same way we came in even though it is one way to avoid the tight turns. The park is not busy and only has 5 other sites booked for the entire weekend. The park is well maintained and has a friendly staff. The park is also very quiet. We would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was great for us. We had a site on the water: actually a bluff above the water. Beautiful views and plenty of room. We were very impressed with the facilities: boat ramp, RV camping and tent camping with water access. There are a couple of small docks from which you can fish, and we caught a couple. It is close to the historic area, but away from the noise of town. The site was packed gravel and level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a bike path/running trail that runs all the way into the residential area. Everything was nicely maintained. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is not the best place for kids, not a whole lot to do. 2 pools but they are public use. Campers don't pay. I wish they had a kiddie pool or children's water spray area and more swings. If you have a boat + camper this is the place to be. This campground is owned by James City County. Not a bad place, just needs more activities. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
