We've camped at Naylor's several times the past few years and had been pleased until this time. We set up camp mid-day and as the day wore on the neighbors became louder and louder. When I ran into the new owner that afternoon I asked if they were going to keep us up all night; Ms. Wills said probably so and that we could move to another spot if we wanted. She also said there was nothing she could do about the noise. We walked the perimeter of the grounds, there wasn't a space where you couldn't hear our neighbors' music. Roughly 11pm the neighbors turned on construction-type lights (which were pointed directly in our direction and so bright the curtains didn't help much) and began the cornhole tournament. By midnight the floor in our camper was vibrating with their base. They finally went to bed some time after 2:30am. We had paid for 2 nights but left the next morning (couldn't find any employees to even ask about a partial refund). There were several dogs roaming free and doing their business wherever the urge hit (don't get me wrong, I'm a dog lover, but I really don't want to pick my way around dog doo). If you want to party all night this is the place for you; if you want to do morning fishing, though, you might want to rethink that. Even my 16-year-old said it was too loud. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our third visit to Naylor's. Though there's not waterfront access there is a beautiful view of the river from the front two rows of sites. Sites are flat and huge (space for a camper, boat, and two pick-ups with room to spare). Bath house facilities are adequate (remembering there's more green space than pavement). We were disappointed that the owner's declining health pretty much prevents him from leaving the house now so we weren't able to visit with him more than just a few words through the window, but the staff is helpful and trying to keep things running as smoothly as they can. We'd definitely go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
To get to Naylor's you go 2.8 miles past the Rapahannock River Bridge on 360E out of Tapahannock. Go left on 624, immediately turn left again on Naylor's Beach Rd. Go 3.7 miles to Riverfront. Campground is a hidden gem not well advertised. Owned and operated by elderly man who lives on site for many years. Large shaded, thick grassy campsites under huge Oak and Pecan trees. Short walk to waterfront, picnic area, playground, small store, boat ramp and swimming beach. Check-in is 3 p.m. and check-out is 6 p.m. making it nice for Fri.-Sunday trips. Clean restrooms & showers. Very clean campground. Easy dump station. Mostly upgraded 30 amp electric. Electric & water on opposite sides, may need an electric extension cord. No campfires on ground - must bring elevated fireplace. No alcohol on premises policy (not always observed). Dish owners have clear access to 110W and 119W. Open May 1st to September 30th. We enjoy Naylor's and go frequently. If in the area, don't let this under advertised little gem go unnoticed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
