Overall this is a nice place to stay, everyone was extremely friendly and very helpful. Nice campground along the Chickahominy River, with boat launch and fishing docks on site. The entrance to the camp ground is a major concern, for this reason, we will not return to this camp ground, the back of the camper bottoms out before you go over the railroad tracks when entering and after when exiting the camp ground which scraps the back of the camper, we were camping in a 5th wheel along with the others in our party. Our group attended the Hawgs, Hosses and Hineys festival this past weekend, small bike event, but fun. Wasn’t aware of the requirement that each person (over the age of 12) camping in your party had to purchase a $45 bike festival ticket, this wasn’t conveyed when reservations were made, nor was it explained how our camp sites were set up, “Tandem Set-Up”, they have newer sites that aren’t Tandem set-up. Another concern are the fire rings, they are set flush in the ground, this is extremely dangerous. The Rockadome and Road House Bar ran out of beer and alcohol by 10:00 Saturday night, with that, our party left the facility and missed the main event in the Rockadome, this probably saved our group a couple $100 dollars. All in all, we had a good time and enjoyed our weekend at the Rockahock camp ground.

This was our 3rd year camping here, prices have increased dramatically and this places charges for EVERYTHING now. Staff is nasty, old and dismissive (more than one instance). I was told when I made my reservations this year that I had to pay in full for express check in, once we arrived they had canceled express check in and I had to go to the office. However, this is a great campground for kids, more of a waterpark than a camping destination. Hookups are good, Wi-Fi was unreliable.

Stayed for 8 nights on site 836 once again, this was our 3rd year, enjoyed our stay. Campground is managed very well. Wi-Fi has limited bandwidth. Security Patrol manages to keep golf carts under control. The only reason I didn't rate a 10 is due to the fact that we now have our own golf cart and were unable to use it, camp ground doesn’t allow use of private golf carts unless you are a seasonal. Unfortunately we will move our group to Ocean lakes next year, given that most of us have our own golf carts and don’t wish the added expense of renting from the camp ground golf carts for $300+.
