The location is the closest to Colonial Williamsburg. They advertise they have a shuttle bus to the colonial area but in actuality it is a city sponsored shuttle (fee). We felt the advertising of the shuttle was misleading. There are several premium sites that are larger than the other sites (50 amp and wi-fi) but they were next to a busy road and not all that larger width-wise than the less expensive 30 amp sites. Our 30 amp site was very narrow but we appreciated the shade. The main problem was the many, many trains that were about 30 feet from our RV. I held my breath that there was no derailment. The next door neighbors had a smoky fire which was just 10 feet from our unit. The sites are too close for fires, we feel. There are only two women's and two men's showers for this camp. There were lots of tenters who used the facilities so there was a backup at times. Our main concern was the small site, the proximity of fire rings and the frightening train traffic; otherwise it was a good place from which to explore the historic areas of Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. They offer a Good Sam discount so that kept the price as $36 rather than $40.

We stayed here as a member of C2C. We felt uncomfortable here. There are mostly permanents and most of the trailers are rundown. We only saw a few traveling type RVs in the park. There were security forces patrolling (which is good). However, one of them mentioned to us that there has been a lot of theft by residents. The hookups are not good. The electric and water are on the passenger side way to the front of the lot; the sewer is on the driver way to the back. We just did not have enough extensions on the sewer to connect to that. We have no idea what the planners of the park had in mind when they designed this park. The streets are not paved and there is lots of dust. There is a nice large picnic table. The security guard said they have the second largest pool in the county and we verify that it was huge. We booked this park so we could explore the Assateague/Chincoteague area. We hope to be gone all day so we won't have to look at the dismal surroundings.
