We loved this simple campground, nestled in the village of Avon. It is far enough from the highway to get away from the occasional traffic and noise, yet close enough to have a choice of restaurants, shops, gas stations, etc. to choose from. If you ride on the beach in your vehicle, this is a very appropriate campground since it is not located directly by the ocean. The owners are helpful and friendly, the WiFi is very inconsistent due to the lousy WiFiRV service (this is a problem at many campgrounds in the United States due to this scam of a company - this has nothing to do with the park owners who are trying very hard to rectify this problem). I recommend this park and look forward to returning again and again. Our price reflects our PPA membership.

We love Beacon Hill and try to get here as often as we can. Wonderful location for views. The staff is super, the park is small and very basic (no pool or children under 16 years), perfect for a quiet and relaxing vacation. There are tons of things to do and see within miles of the park and the rates are consistently low. This is my #1.

This park is an ideal FAMILY campground. We pulled in with no children and no bicycles and no golf carts, and I was hesitant that we had chosen the wrong campground for a relaxing vacation. There were kids everywhere, golf carts zooming around, and people every where. However, we were pleasantly surprised during our trip. The majority of the campers were very friendly, the staff was consistently helpful and informative. We fished and crabbed off of one of the piers a couple days. We took long walks around the large park. We went on the paddle boats, traveled to Cape Charles (small old town nearby) and ate ice cream from the small cafe located within the park. Everything you need is in the park and I found it very refreshing to not have to leave for small things that I forgot: they have a general store as well. In addition, if you don't catch enough (or big enough) seafood, you can order it in the park too! It was quieter than I thought it would be other than the teenagers at night. This was by far the biggest issue: they were out in large groups at night and were very loud on the piers. They would gather (25+ people) on the end of the pier, play music and dance on picnic tables. We reported this, as did two other campers before us, but there were only TWO staff on duty at night. This campground is entirely TOO BIG to have only two people working at night. In addition, we were told that the rules used to be very strict (no golf carts after dark, quiet hours, etc.) but apparently these are no longer enforced and those that have been camping at this park for years seemed to be quite disappointed. We even had our electric unplugged from the outlet and someone said it must have been a "prank" by some teenagers, but we weren't amused. Other than this, it was a pretty good time and we may return if in the area again.
