This was our first visit this year; we visited 4 times in 2017. Since we do not tow a car, biking is very important, and this facility is an excellent location for biking to restaurants, shops, markets and a beautiful beach. There are miles of bike trails all over the island that keep you off the major roads. Cable TV signal was strong, with good channel selection, Wi-Fi was weak and spotty, a complaint that we shared with others. There are only two men's room commodes in the clubhouse for the entire population, that's not enough. There is a general positive and friendly atmosphere with the staff and the people here. Each week there are bike tours and guided tours of the local areas that are fun and well coordinated. They are opening the snack bar at the lovely pool soon so you don't need to leave the pool area to find a nice lunch. The sites are well maintained and very clean. We will return soon. We camped at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well designed restroom / shower facilities. They constantly work at keeping this facility clean. We have stayed here before and have not been disappointed. Overall, this facility appears to be very well managed. Even the landscaping was in excellent condition. We camped at Raleigh Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Our site was chosen for us before arrival. It was located right in front of the bathroom entrance next to the hotel parking lot, even though the park was virtually empty. After three tries, we were assigned a more suitable site. The site was level and clean. Utilities all worked fine and the wi-fi was excellent. The pool was clean, with good furniture and lots of lounge, umbrellas and chairs. The beach was small, but nice, although there was trash that needed to be picked up. The bathrooms were fairly modern but not clean, and we determined that there was no thorough cleaning done in the four days we were there. Although they advertise shuttle service in the local area, we saw no shuttle, and, when we asked, we were told that a driver was not available. The front desk person took our number and indicated the manager would call us the next day to advise the schedule. There was no call, so we asked again at the desk and were told the same, but, again, no one called the next day. We went up the following day and "signed up" for the shuttle and were told that someone would call; again no one called, and no shuttle bus was ever visible. We camped at Chesapeake Bay KOA Resort & Beach Club (formerly Sunset Beach Resort) in a Motorhome.
There is a nice wildlife refuge and welcome center just across Rt.13 with walking trails and an excellent 3 mile paved bike path that takes you to Kiptopeke State Park. There is a very nice campground, trails and beach at Kiptopeke State Park and we decided that, on our next trip to the Cape Charles area, we will stay at the state park instead of Sunset Beach.
