9 RV Parks near Cape Charles, Virginia
Aug 2017 - $46.00
Nice state park located near the Bay Bridge Tunnel so can access Virginia Beach and Norfolk easily. Huge sites- not all level but can choose your own out of available sites. Fairly busy but quiet and very clean. Rangers are extremely nice. Would absolutely return. - 2retiresoon

A very nice, large park. We were able to pick out our own site out of 3 loops that are mostly full service. A few are just electric and water. The sites appear not to be very level but if you pull up far enough, they level off. That is - the land rises up away from the road, so you have to pull back far enough to get to the level spots. This is a beautiful location with lots of trails and water access. It is right over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel heading north. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Bathrooms were very clean and there is a laundry facility provided as well. - Cape Cod kayaker

We were fortunate to camp here during off season. We had a reservation but were able to pick any site we wanted. All sites are back in and I can imagine during the high season it can be very crowded but for us, during the third week of November, it was perfect. The hiking trails and the beaches in the area were nice with our dogs. We had a water heating issue so we used the showers on site. They were dated but served the purpose with warm to hot water. The Camp Host came to visit and was incredibly nice chatting with my husband. The park itself is just tremendous and we will most certainly come back again during the off season. - aurunner98

Stayed here in a 45 motorhome. Nice campground but seriously lacking signage. If coming from the north, turn right on the street before the hotel building and you can follow the writing on the pavement to check in at the hotel lobby. Escorted to your site. The pull through was long, level, grassy and wide. Many of the back-in sites were not very level as the ground was "domed". Matting under the grass could be helpful when the ground is wet to prevent the rig from sinking. Electric and water are nearer to the front of the site which is probably perfect for smaller rigs but a little more of a run for us. Didn't hook up sewer. Restaurant on site is on the beach/bay and is quite a lovely location. Didn't eat there. Since it is later in the season and there are less users, the water had quite a bit of rust in it. It got better as it was used but not perfect. Wifi ok. Easy for maneuvering big rig; no trees. As in previous posts, the exit is a little convoluted and there are no signs as to where it is. It's more on the north end and not after the dump stations otherwise it almost a u-turn to continue south on route 13. Would stay here again. - Team Asphalt

Great location right on Rt 13 before Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel. Large campground with over 300 sites, very nice pool and beach. Small cafe serves basic food, good sized camp store. Friendly, helpful staff. Good for a few nights stay max. - Lynda C

Our site was chosen for us before arrival. It was located right in front of the bathroom entrance next to the hotel parking lot, even though the park was virtually empty. After three tries, we were assigned a more suitable site. The site was level and clean. Utilities all worked fine and the wi-fi was excellent. The pool was clean, with good furniture and lots of lounge, umbrellas and chairs. The beach was small, but nice, although there was trash that needed to be picked up. The bathrooms were fairly modern but not clean, and we determined that there was no thorough cleaning done in the four days we were there. Although they advertise shuttle service in the local area, we saw no shuttle, and, when we asked, we were told that a driver was not available. The front desk person took our number and indicated the manager would call us the next day to advise the schedule. There was no call, so we asked again at the desk and were told the same, but, again, no one called the next day. We went up the following day and "signed up" for the shuttle and were told that someone would call; again no one called, and no shuttle bus was ever visible. - Revvie

Still recovering from a tornado 3 years ago plus a number of nasty storms. If you like water views, crabs, clams, and oysters, you will love Cherrystone. Docks for your boat and great fishing. - CGNRG

We love Cherrystone. There is so much to do. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Tons of activities for the kids. Blue crabbing was a success this year. The camp cafe and arcade could use a face-lift. The laundry facilities are nice and large. Bathhouses were clean. The roads to get into our actual site were a bit hard to back into. Sewer situation was a bit wonky with the sewer being a lot higher than most travel trailers. Overall, good experience. - Lilwolfpup

Been here several times and never disappointed in the facility. The weather, that's another matter. We have been going here with a group for their Mothers Day weekend special (pay for Friday, get Saturday FREE) for a few years now. Problem is the weather rarely cooperates at that time of the year. Think we are going to move this back a couple of weeks next year. On the plus side, it's never crowded that time of the year.
Chose you site carefully. Some are large and spacious like 185-244, others in the area of 150's and such, are smaller and can be a challenge to get into. We were in site 193 and it was wide enough to put my 24 ft TT in sideways. As I have seen in other reviews the sites are mostly grass, (or sand if you are closer to the water) and get muddy when it rains. Looking forward to going back again in the summer. - Joe J

Stayed at New Point RV Resort in VA as we do every year. This RV park has basically become a trashy trailer park. Couldn't even get to our site for the golf carts and cars hanging around and blasting loud music until 12:30 AM. Called the front desk and told them. They were not concerned about the issue, but offered a new site for us instead of dealing with the problem. Also told the security guard about it and he said we were lying. He stated he rode around after 11PM and was quiet. Obviously he is friends of the other campers blasting the loud music. We have stayed at SUN resorts for years, but will never stay again. Hope they can turn this into a nice RV park for others that will stay there in the future. Unacceptable. - HC_Travel

This was our second time at this campground. Since our last stay it has become almost exclusively a seasonal camper campground. The sites left for transients are pretty much the leftovers no one wanted. I got to my assigned site and found a car parked in it (belonged to a campground employee) which required getting office staff to come and push it off the site. While I was waiting for this to happen I was accosted by a "seasonal" camper who very belligerently told me I was "blocking the road" and he wanted me to move my 50 plus feet of truck and trailer so he could get by with his compact car. There are multiple side roads he could take. I didn't need this after just driving for 3 hours, and the car on the site. Very unpleasant experience.
Beach is great for kids, as you can walk to China and still be only up to your knees. Dogs not allowed on beach at any time and no other place for them to run. Lots and lots of golf carts stirring up dust at all hours. I guess if you're a seasonal camper this would be just fine, but it is terrible for transient campers.
Not big rig friendly at all, narrow roads with some impossible turns and lots of tight turns. - scjenk

New Point Campground located on the Chesapeake Bay is a hidden gem. Hidden because it is rural and you have to want to go there not just pull off the highway. Gem because it has something for all ages and after being allowed to run down by previous owners has been completely restored to a status beyond any other resort in the area. We love the pool but walking the beach, swimming and floating in the bay, watching families play in the calm water, crabbing and casting a line make it a very special place. Walking dogs along nature trail on the Bay, making friends sitting and sunning on the nice stretch of beach, watch jet skis, kayaks and boats bobbing along in deeper channels, riding golf cart around property, going to pavilion for organized meals and activities, enjoying music beachside on a balmy night, venturing into town of Mathews for browsing in Main Street shops or for a nice meal. Recommend you try it...you won't be disappointed! - jmo

Very large park with paved main roads, gravel site roads and grass sites, gated entry, club house, pool, and rec room. Private boat launch and pier which is dry at low tide. Most sites are back in, long and spacious. Only a dozen sites have sewer. Water is between two sites so both need 50 feet of hose and entire sections of shaded sites have no water available. Showers and toilets are 200 yards from sites. The dump station hose is broken at top of stand pipe so you and the rig get a shower but nothing comes out of the rinse hose and there is no faucet to use your own hose, so the dump station is a toxic waste site. Weak and slow free Wi Fi only in rec room. Land area is very large and ½ mile from gate to sites another ½ miles from sites to pool and rec room. No store on site, 8 miles to small store and 20 miles to Walmart. No cable and only a few over the air TV stations. No access to water or any beach. Another TT park continuing its downhill slide. Only about 1/3 of original sites active, all others abandoned and utilities non-functioning. Active sites well maintained. Have both open and wooded (no water) sites. Last 5 miles to park on narrow paved road. Staff nice and helpful, but will not return. - Pepper Dan

We chose this campground because we wanted to see what a Thousand Trail campground was like to decide if we wanted to buy one of their passes.
The majority of the park had no electric. The office staff, who was very nice, said it was because of all the recent rain they had. However, I'm not sure if that was accurate since all of the boxes were wire-tied shut and had a "X" painted in red on the cover.
We had reserved a 50-amp site and upon our arrival were given the choice of a 50 amp site that we would have to park in the adjacent street or a 30-amp site that we could pull into. We chose the 30-amp.
The picnic table was in poor condition, and the barbecue grill was rusted and had holes in the bottom.
The campground was mostly empty, although there were a few travel trailers on our row that seemed to be seasonal and no one using them when we were there. - Our rv journey

This is an old park but kept as nice as possible with little to work with. It is quiet, staff is friendly and helpful. The Family Center is bare, but does provide a slow free WiFi signal. There is a view of the ocean, though it is not accessible. The park is quiet and peaceful. There are sand fleas that are annoying, at least in August. I had several bites that have been hard to get rid of. The restrooms have many little green frogs in the shower area but they are harmless. The park is down a long road and the inner roads are gravel. This is not a busy park, but great for rest and relaxation. We chose a site under trees but there were some out in the open. - dldw1954

People go out of their way to be friendly and helpful, everywhere in the campground. Very clean, gravel drives. We have a 31 ft rig and it was tight getting it into the slot but we did. Very quiet after 9 PM, all we heard was the Chesapeake and wind. There are some decent restaurants in Mathews, about 4 miles but overpriced and the town is going yuppie. Dinner for 2, ribeye, milkshake, Fish filet and cup of soup came to $65 at Richardsons. It was very noisy but food was good. I will get my own ribeye at a grocery store next time. - Passin Thru
Aug 2011 - $44.00
For me, this park was too expensive for the amenities offered at $44.00 per night. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful as my cord wouldn't reach the electric box because of the trees in the way and found a 30 amp extension cord for me. The water did not look fit to drink so I unhooked and used my water tank. The handle to the water hookup was broken so had to use plyers. The restrooms/showers were satisfactory, but I've seen much better at other campgrounds. Overall I would give it a grade of satisfactory. It appears to be more of an extended stay park than a campground. - Colorado Vagabond

The Park is right on the Chesapeake Bay. Beautiful view of sun rise. Facilities are very clean and well maintained. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Fishing, swimming beach, pavilion and play ground. No sewer hook-ups must either tow to dump station or use portable sewer tank and drive it to dump station. Not bad for weekenders and longer than 3-4 days and you will need to dump. No camp store, but convenience store is only about 2 miles and major grocer is about 10. Really nice place to sun and relax and fish. - Gibsonjv

Campground is located in suburban area of Hampton at the rear of a 100 acre city park. Park office is located nearby and staff are very helpful and friendly. Sites are fairly grass/gravel with large evergreens providing shade. Electric is 30amp. Water & electric are padlocked until you register. Arrive before 4:30 otherwise you will have to camp rough for the night/weekend unless you can catch the caretaker cleaning the showers, or driving through the grounds. HRT (bus) stops 400 yards from campground cnr Clemwood Pwy & Little Back River Rd & covers Hampton, Virginia Beach & Newport pretty well. $3.50 buys all day pass. $5.50 allows use of ferries & express buses. Park locked after dark, however road through Campground left open (turn left at 7-11 on Back River Rd) - which creates traffic - especially in the early morning. Nearby Air Force base (other side of bay) also can be noisy - but only during daylight hours. Great place to stay if you have business/visits to do in Hampton/Virginia Beach area & don't have other transport. - Sandy Potter

Would have rated a 10 except for the price. This should be a $45 park. It is very clean and the spaces are large and not right on top of each other. All are back in spaces, but easy in and easy out. The park is right across from the beach, easy walking. Had good satellite service in our space, but there are some trees that might not have good access. There is a wonderful museum right down the road. No dog park but pet friendly. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall we loved this park. We had a beautiful view of the bay from our sight. We stayed 5 nights, but would love to come back and stay longer. Good shopping about 15 minutes away. - Old Farts

This park is small and convenient to the interstate, shopping and quick access to the Norfolk area. Private beach and great sea wall walking, no wi fi or cable, park too expensive for what it is but in line with the area. - Bruce and Janette

Fort Monroe is a decommissioned Army fort in 2011 and is now a National Monument. It's called the Colonies because each of the 13 RV sites is named after one of the original 13 colonies when the nation was in it's infancy. Our site for the week was Massachusetts. The fort is surrounded by water, and was first commissioned in 1861, just months after the start of the Civil War. The park itself does not have many of the regular amenities, like a pool, spa or game room. What it does have are paved sites and paved roads. The sites are widely spaced and are full hookup. At the current time only 5 of the 13 sites are 50 amp, but the new owners are in process of adding 50 amp to the remaining sites. Some sites are shaded, but others are more open and sunny. One of the oddities of the sites is that the water hook up is located on the passenger side rear of the site, so at least a 25' water hose is required for hook up. There are some amenities, like some playground equipment, lots of surrounding open grassy area that was well trimmed, and a walking path that ran along next to the seawall on the Chesapeake Bay. The restrooms/showers are clean and handicapped accessible, but there is just one for men and one for women. In between the shower areas is one washer and one dryer. There is a club/restaurant on the site, called the Paradise Club which serves food and beverages. However, the day that we went was our first day arriving at the campground, and it was also the last day of operations for the club as it was closing for the season. On the up side the RV park was spacious and dead quiet at night. On the down side, the heat during the days, and the presence of various biting bugs kept us from spending much time outside. A different time of year may be better. We paid $49 a night plus tax. There is also no Wifi offered at the park, but due to the close proximity of a cellular tower, our Verizon air card was blazing fast. - SargeW

Very secluded sites, surrounded by trees. The trolley stops ended on October 1st so you need to have transportation to get back and forth to Virginia Beach boardwalk, which is six miles away. Therefore, If you are camping in a motor home, make sure to tow a vehicle with you for transportation. Most of the sites are not long enough for a 30 foot rig and car so you will have to leave your car in the parking lot at the park entrance. Most sites are back in, which can be difficult due to narrow roads, trees, and tight spaces. No site hook ups, but there is a 2 station Dump station at entrance to campground. Campground is next to a busy Naval Reserve Training station. I heard many helicopters throughout the day and gunfire at nights, which became somewhat annoying. The beach was relatively close but no one was swimming because of the weather (I guess). There were several people fishing from the beach. At sunset the dolphins come pretty close to the shore looking for fish to eat. One night several large dolphins were about 30 feet from the shore aggressively chasing fish. I was a little nervous about getting in the water after seeing this. I rated the service low because the camp store and office closed at 4:30 during the non peak periods. If your looking for a secluded place nestled in a wooded camp ground or enjoy fishing then this is a great spot. If you want more activities and access to nightlife then you may not like this campground, especially during non peak periods. - Hubison88

Overall I was not impressed. I have been to 4 Virginia State Park Campgrounds this year and 2 last year and this is my least favorite. We stayed in a EW50 site so i knew getting there at 5PM we would not have the pick of the litter as far as sites go. The non-site specific side of the campground is to the left upon entering. There are only 31 sites total and only 11 of those are 50 foot sites. As expected all of the better sites were taken but there was 5 of the 11 left. Most were on the southside of the loop and just a cyclone fence away from busy shore drive.we ended up in site 5 which is right next to the bathhouse. There is no vegetation between the site and the bathhouse so you picnic table is right along the walkway to the bathhouse. The only good sites I saw were site 1, 7 and 8. I took a ride through the east loop that is all site specific and they are mostly 20 foot sites for tents. There were a few RV sites but even those seemed short and all the sites were very crowded together. On the good side, all the staff I encountered were great. Very helpful and friendly. A well stocked Camp Store that had fountain drinks and snacks (nachos, hotdogs). Our site while right next to the bathhouse was also right next to the boardwalk over the dune to the beach. The beach was great. Clean and well kept. All in all I guess its what is it that you are looking for. If peace, quiet and a little privacy is what you are looking for look elsewhere. If trailer park camping is you thing then this is just right for you. - Joe J

Large campground at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The State Park extends far across the highway and includes miles of multi-purpose trails popular with joggers and cyclists. Some sites are small and near - almost surrounded by - swampy standing water; others are on higher ground and surrounded by mature low trees. Pick a site close to the beach to avoid the swamps if you can. The sites labelled "site specific" are those that van be specifically reserved. Others are reserved by category. Our site 143 was fairly private and a short walk to beach access boardwalk. If you have a big or tall rig, use the outermost perimeter campground roads for ingress/egress, as the interior roads have low-hanging trees. No sites have sewer but there is a dual-station sanitary dump in the front of the campground. Showers had plenty of hot water, but are basic paint-peeling concrete - about what you'd expect for a beach campground. - TheBreeze
