Great hosts, friendly and helpful. Nice site with Chickahominy River view. Boat launch and fishing docks on site. Easy access and plenty of parking. These are newer camp sites upgraded to FHU, 30 amp electric. The down side for some might be the 'Main Camp'. Many older RV's used as Summer fishing rigs and a few year round residents. Not a problem for us. Restrooms/showers were dated, but always very clean. - M GO BLUE

Quiet rural setting with plenty of trees. Many full time residents, friendly. It's all about the lake here, nice marina, boat launch and a decent restaurant. Halfway between Richmond and Williamsburg, so a good location to visit both towns. Good shopping within 15 minutes. Office is closed Monday and Tuesday, kind of strange. I would stay here again. - senator47

It was a nice park. We stayed in lot 334 which is the closest spot to the water available. Nice decorative concrete patio and fire ring. Office staff was nice, the store has everything you could possible need camping in RV or tent. It is a large campground and we do not have a golf cart so close to office, restaurant was better. There seem to be a lot of locals / permanent but everyone was extremely nice. We will go back again. - Chris-Esther2008 _

This is a very large campground, so in season I would suspect that it would be very crowded given its location to Williamsburg which is about 20 minutes away. We notice that some of the sites have a strange location for hookups but most do not. There's a great playground for kids and a very nice swimming pool for adults and kids along with an amphitheater for various festivals. The on site restaurant is fantastic real Italian food. Great campground in the fall and spring as it's not crowded at all, the summer could be a zoo but most campgrounds near the water and Williamsburg are. - NPmoto

Second time we have stayed at this campground, site the first time here was much better. Location works for us as we are visiting family that live near. As others have reported the restaurant on site is excellent. When we are back in the area will stay here again. - Wingn1

Nice quiet public campground on a creek that empties into the Chickahominy River. I would have rated it higher but felt it a bit expensive fora public campground. Located near Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown museums. - nospam8160

Tent sites have one shared electricity panel with two 110 outlets. No 20, 30 or 50 amp; just 1 plug per site. Wish we had known because we needed 30 amp and 110. - Cyclefitness

What a sweet park! We had a site right where the river bends and it provided a fantastic view. The campground has a system of lights on the utility pole which is much lower than we usually see. It was much appreciated as it provides lighting for security but isn't blaring in your eyes at night. We only stayed two days and I wish we could have stayed longer to rent a canoe or kayak. There is a golf driving range right as you enter the park as well. - Da Keeffes

Excellent park for a quick overnight or longer stay. Not able to utilize the park much due to the quick turnaround but service, check in, cleanliness and location was superb. Very handy to Williamsburg and Jamestown. Would recommend this park to anyone. - durham4926

Third review of this campground. It is pretty much the same as our visit in July, except they have now upgraded the wifi to cover the campground. It seemed to work well from the site.
Everything else said before still applies, nice, quiet little campground, very friendly people, not too far from Williamsburg, overall an excellent place to stay. - Cyclonic

They have a large spacious grounds. There are 23 sites in a nice wooded area, all with elec.,water & sewer plus internet access from site. Sites are about 30 ft. apart. It is a very well maintained area & bath house. Williamsburg is about 15 miles away. But jumping on rt. 64 with a 70 mph speed limit, you are there fairly quickly. This is a hidden gem . They also have a nice pool & play area for children. Quiet, clean & excellent staff. - vince/chestertown

We had a nice wide pull thru with plenty of space for our toad. All pads are concrete with additional large living area. Roads are wide, perfect for large rigs. The park was quite, well maintained and the staff was very friendly. - Lama79

Our first visit to this large & very attractive campground, easy off/on VA Route 64. We stayed here to break up the trip to & from Northern Virginia to Rodanthe, Outer Banks, NC. Reservations (probably not necessary in Oct/Nov) were easy to make - efficient check-in. Well equipped camp store. We had Site 22, which was large enough for our SUV hooked to our trailer (we're about 50 feet). The site was level, paved, with a picnic table, and very clean. Full hookups were in good working order and well located. We did not use the bathhouse, but judging from the rest of the campground, I would imagine it is clean. Great place for dog walking & there is a large off-leash dog enclosure. Wi-Fi was excellent as was the cable connection, with a large variety of available channels. Strong Verizon signal. There is a train that passes nearby, blowing its horn which might bother some, but not us - we love trains. Entry is down a very narrow road & it could be easy to miss the left turn into the campground as it is partially obscured by bushes/trees. Not good to miss it, as it's a dead end street & no way to turn around, so just watch carefully for the American Heritage sign to your left. Our GPS was a bit confused! - Safe Trip

A quiet campground surrounded by thick row of trees so highway and train noise is minimal. Front Half is concrete pads and asphalt access roads with heavy shade. Back half is concrete pads with gravel access roads and no shade. Sites have adequate spacing with grass between the sites, picnic tables, and fire rings on request. Highway noise was barely noticeable while the trains (6-12 a day) were moving so fast it was just a couple a minutes of noise for each train.
The street leading to the campground is problematic, but doable for big rigs - narrow (maybe a lane and a half), trees both low overhanging and intruding from sides. Big rigs pretty much need to take the middle of road to avoid scraping. The turn into and out of the campground is tight but doable for big rigs. On exit big rigs need to go out from left lane and take all of the street. The trees on the left side of the exit are not trimmed for big rigs (thus losing half a lane). Trees on the right side of the road make the exit turn effectively a blind turn. Two rigs can't pass on the street.
The main access road is wide enough for two rigs, but once back among the sites the access roads are pretty much a single lane but still two way traffic.
Power ok, water ok, sewer ok, wifi pretty decent (but this was off season) except for Friday and Saturday evenings when campground filled up with weekenders. Verizon LTE 3-4 bars with adequate speed, TMobile LTE 1-2 bars with adequate speed. Cable was analog and somewhat snowy. Front half of the campground is problematic for satellite, back half is mostly ok for satellite except site 93 which has a low hanging tree overhead that precludes use of roof mounted satellite on front of coach. Southernmost sites in back area might have trouble clearing treeline for satellite. Onsite single steam recycle. Adequate road bike riding if short and repetitive in campground. No direct access to good road bike riding from campground.
We would stay here again. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

Really poor registration process! The first come first serve site management system is inefficient and a little frustrating. The sites are "tight" and paths leading into them narrow. The staff is friendly, the amenities nice, but the interstate road noise loud. - Cabin270

Price reflects Thousand Trails membership. This campground is right off of I-64, just north of Williamsburg. Roads are paved but tight. All of the motorhomes we saw had dropped their toads prior to entering. Some sites are tight, other's tighter. Ours was gravel/dirt combination. Very little grass. Lots of trees. The ladies at the front office bend over backward to get you in. You are given a selection of suggested sites to look at and then you drive around and look for a site you like. Then you go back to the office and let them know where you landed. Bathrooms are tiled and clean, but need to be de-spidered. Due to the amount of droppings on the floor, the spider's have been there quite a while. Pool is very nice. All site utilities worked properly. There are a lot of full time residents. - moderate camper

We went to this park in April and everything was shut down. Nothing for kids to do. I don't know why it's called "Outdoor world". There are a lot of unlevel and hilly sites. Sites are first come first serve. Luckily we arrived at check-in time and got a fairly level site that was close to the office and restrooms. I will not return to this campground. - JohnB GVA

Very large old park, just a few miles from the historical colonial sites. Gravel road and grass sites with FHU or W/E. Sites level but narrow. Lucky no neighbors, in fact park almost empty in July. Old but clean RR and showers, nice pool. No on-site laundry. Both open sky and wooded sites. Good cell, no cable and good over the air TV. Very weak free wi fi. No clubhouse or store. Park suffering from lack of maintenance and upkeep but still ok. Good base to visit area and good value. One mile to Walmart and restaurants. Staff very helpful and friendly. - Pepper Dan

Park is 80 years old and has seen better days. No updating has been done recently. WiFi is OK, depending on the site. All interior roads are grass / gravel. - ta96silver

This campground has seen better days. It is very run down. Only has 8 sites with 50 amp and one of those didn't work. Sites are very close together. No trees at all for the sites with 50 amp. Swimming pool is away from anything else. Laundry is not open. - Glendaj

Very friendly staff at check-in. A little tight maneuvering the road but with care no problems. Sites level gravel, about half in trees with the others more open. Those in the trees may have trouble getting a satellite signal. Wifi worked well most of the time - a little slow during peak hours. Cable was good with many channels. The only reason I marked the campground loser was due to close proximity of the train tracks - about a hundred yards away. The coach actually shook a little when a freight train passed and we were the farthest from the tracks. Luckily the did not run much at night. We would stay here again. - 2sunkid

This was our third stay at this park and it will not be our last. We just love this park for the friendly staff and closeness to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. Because the campground is on a bus line, we do not need to bring a car, which saves us money. The bus is very safe and reliable.
It is next to the railroad tracks but we have camped across the U.S. and this is the case with many campgrounds. After the second train, we barely notice them. The road in front is quite busy during the day but quiets down at night and we have not noticed much truck traffic, mostly cars.
Our sites have always been fairly level with little adjustment on our part. We will definitely stay here again and again. - CraftCrazy

Staff was very helpful and friendly. The park is fairly small with very little grass areas for dogs. Nice pool with a few playgrounds for the kids. Very close to Williamsburg. Right next to the train tracks but not bad if you don't mind trains. - jimnina

Very nice employees and a very nice and clean campground. The owner seemed a bit grumpy, but we didn't deal with him too much. We got a patio site, which meant it was a little larger and included a stone patio and a swing. The campground was perhaps 1/3 full, but they had plenty of activities going on in spite of that. In all, we'd absolutely go back. Our only complaint was the firewood. We paid $25 for four bundles, but none of them were cured properly. I can live with that when gathering my own, but if I'm paying for firewood it should be dry. When we started our campfire, the wood sizzled and we saw sap coming out of it, and it wouldn't stay lit even though we had a small firestarter and good kindling. We weren't the only ones having trouble, either. The only way we could keep a fire going was to go out and buy one of those fireplace logs and put it under the purchased wood. We informed the management via email and they said they would check with their supplier. No refund or credit was offered. While it's normally verboten to bring your own wood, next time we go there we'll buy a bundle or two of the kiln-dried wood in advance, and bring it with us. - SteveMM

This park was in a nice quiet location a couple miles from the interstate and was quiet save for weekenders with kids. Interior sites need some work such as additional gravel and leveling. All utilities were in working order. A bit pricey. - Altoflyfisher

We stayed eight days on the Williamsburg, the "quiet side" during our triangle historical tour. This KOA was extremely accommodating to us and very attentive of the happenings around the park. The quiet side had a nice clean pool that we used along with a clean laundromat which included an ironing board. This park has lots of trees and birds. The interior roads are gravel as well as the camp sites. The staff was always working around the campground either mowing grass; leaf blowing sidewalks; trimming hedge; checking campsites after campers moved out; improving the showers; or cleaning out the garbage cans. The picnic tables were painted and free of rust and dirt. Both the men and women's showers were cleaned daily. The staff advised us in advance the store on the Williamsburg side would be closed for a few days during our stay; however, this did not cause any convenience since we were able to walk the trail to the store on the "Colonial" side of the KOA. On the Colonial side the activity center appeared clean; pool was clean and full of families having fun; and, store was very well stocked. While we were there, the quiet side was predominately full timers which were all extremely nice, quiet, and respectful. If camping with a family, the Colonial side would probably be the best; camping with no children the Williamsburg side is great. The road to the KOA was convenient to the interstate. Had to walk away from trees in order to have good cell service. We would stay here again without any hesitation. - PhenT
