The campground is now dubbed "Kings Dominion Camp Wilderness." We camped here to visit the amusement park and were very pleased with the park. It is a very clean campground and the restrooms were well maintained during our stay. The campground maintains a well stocked campstore with various RV items and other commodities that are sometimes forgotten and needed on arrival. The campground staff was friendly and professional. The campground offers regular shuttle service to and from the amusement park, saving campers the normal $12 parking fee at the park. The campground is a little noisy due to highway traffic, the distant screams from riders on the "Dominator" coaster and the occasional train and whistle from the grade crossing just west of the campground entrance. While this campground serves as an excellent base for visiting Kings Dominion, it can also serve as a base for many other excursions to points of interest in the greater Richmond Area.

This is a very quiet and well maintained establishment. The sites are level, concrete pads and are well marked. Restroom cleanliness was of "surgical quality" and set a new standard of excellence. The grounds are well manicured and are surrounded by Back Bay. The ocean is within walking distance and a municipal park with ample parking ($3 fee from 9AM-5PM), two bath houses and picnic pavilions are approximately .2 mile south of the Resort gate. A welcome change from other resort area spots that feature hordes of teens, unsupervising adults and hundreds of speeding golf carts! Only one small problem during our stay. Red ants. They stirred about the rear of our site and got in the RV. The management expressed amazement in my discovery and obviously had no means to eliminate the pests. Had they done so, my rating would have been a 10.
