50 amp FHU which is nice for a state park. It's in a quiet and peaceful area with not much around. To get to shopping you have to cross a toll bridge/tunnel that will cost you $18/trip. The sites are pretty close together. The ones that back along the road (like we had) were a little more private and had some shade. The ones in the middle were in full sun and you had people in front of you or behind you as well as to your sides. The hiking/biking trails were a nice perk and the swimming beach was nice. The non swimming beach (where dogs are allowed) had multiple dead fishes, birds etc which made it not really a good place to walk. I know this is nature and dead animals will happen but this was excessive and I've never seen anything like it before. Sites are pretty unlevel so choose wisely. Ours was impossible to level w/out blocks but not as bad as other sites we saw. The sites are also grass so it's going to get muddy during rain. The only trash dumpsters were by check in which was a good .25 mile walk from the campground and not convenient at all. The bathrooms were nice and very clean. I didn't check out the showers. OTA channels were plentiful and Verizon was 22 d/l and ATT was 31 d/l unboosted. - Jessie1975

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

An old campground on the rebound. New owner has dumped a lot of cash into the campground in new bath houses, WiFi, restaurant and beach front. Has cable tv but it doesn't work. Asked for a discount, no discount given. Lawn maintenance cut grass while camping which was rude. When cutting the grass they threw clippings all over my unit. Sites are gravel pull through with a wood deck and new chairs. No trees bigger than 5 years old so it was hot. - Sandee01

We changed sites while there because our first site was close to other campers and we asked to be moved to an area that offered a little more shade. Staff was helpful and nice. The sites are domed and hard to level from back to front. This appears to be a newer CG that was created on a giant field with no trees, almost every site was full sun. There is a small private beach with a designated dog beach. The pool was a bit cold and played loud, terrible music. The bathrooms and showers were updated but not kept the cleanest. The office and store area stayed open 24 hours. There isn't much else to do for activities with children. Just the beach and pool and a small playground. No coordinated activities or any other features that most KOAs have. Maximum for this CG is only a few day visit with just the beach, restaurant and pool as the only reason for camping there. - Big P-Daddy

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

This was our 2nd year coming here and we look forward to 2019! The staff is super friendly and helpful. (Shout out to the Ranger) They put a lot of work fixing the beachfront and it looks amazing! The only downside is the smell from the decomposing seagrass during low tide. The kids love all of the activities and choices of 4 pools. It's worth the 6-hour drive for us. - Deft_Outdoorsman

Stayed in site #615 right on water. Beautiful views, it's a shame they don't have concrete sites. Small dog park, good if you have a chihuahua. Easy check in and level site. Showers nicely tiled and plenty of hot water. Nice laundry area. They also have a small cafe that offered good food. - Maverick13

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

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

Stayed here 8 years ago and there have been no changes. People are nice. 17 - 50 amp full service sites. Non-reservable! There is a couple that have mowed this 700 acre site for the past 16+ years. If not for them this place would be much worse. The land is protected, so no building is allowed. Don't know what will happen when the caretakers die. Manager has minimal staff but this is one of the cleanest places we have been. Great for relaxing and is only an hour from Chicoteaque and 30 min from Onancock and the very to Tangier Island. WIFI in lodge is so slow might as well not have any. Verizon is only cell service with at least 2 bars. There is a Village in the middle of the property with private homes and trailers. Pool is .5miles from sites. There are also cabin rentals here. Abundant wildlife, birds, deer, Fox, geese. Not really a site for kids, no playground near RV sites or cabins. Beautiful sunsets. - Lynne Dollar

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

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

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

This is the best kept secret in Virginia... The camping area is all the way in the back of the park. There was one other RV besides us, so we had our choice of spots. I think they have 12 spots available. All spots are packed gravel in among the trees, back-in, shaded, with a LOT of room.. Check in at the maintenance office on the end of the street. The park office has weird hours and is closed on weekends. Just pull in and find an open spot, catch them on Monday. There are no reservations, so its first come first serve. The park is mainly soccer fields, located in an upscale residential area, even though everything is completely open to the public, we had no concerns about security. The sites didn't have sewer hookups, but there is a dump station across from the Maintenance office.
The Camping area is all the way in the back of the park, past the soccer fields. Its on the same street as the park maintenance office. - Waiter

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

First saw this park when looking for a place to watch our son's carrier depart on deployment. Tried to stay here another time but no space was available. Area is like being in a large park in an urban environment. Very quiet even though you can see the traffic backed up going into the tunnel. Close to the beach but not very sandy. Not a lot of amenities at the park but plenty of stuff to do nearby. No WiFi or cable. Local tv channels are strong. Satellite works on some sites but trees affect others. Solid Verizon coverage with good speed. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nicely stocked store. Bugs a problem after dark, bring repellent. - glenthompson

This park is too expensive for what it offers but it is all about location, it is the best option in a very dense population area . No wifi, no pools, no frills but a clean comforable park with a view of the bay from both sides of the coach, a well stocked store and nice shade from beautiful Live Oak trees. The best choice when visiting the Norfolk area - Bruce and Janette

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

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
