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

The bath house has been in poor condition for years, two toilets for men, two toilets for women, but most of the time one toilet was out of order in each room. No mirrors in men's room, women's room a mix of paint, an unfinished job, I was told. Showers had no towel hooks whatsoever. Nice campground with a new swimming pool. Plenty of guests and money going into the park, however the restrooms everyone was complaining about the condition. Apparently their septic system is in poor condition too. Restroom was designed for more fixtures than were in them. I will return, but looking forward to bringing my own camper with a toilet. - BillyVA

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

Overall, this is an average commercial campground. Small sites, close together, not very scenic. There's a large seasonal population and far too many golf carts that cause more traffic than the subdivision I live in. Because of that, lots of caution is needed when walking at night.
HOWEVER, the best part of this campground is the surprisingly incredible Italian restaurant, Walker's Dam Grille. It's a must when you visit! Absolutely delicious, made-from-scratch Italian cuisine served by a friendly staff. One important footnote - come with cash or check. They only recently started taking cards and the card service is unreliable. I'd travel the 45 minutes from home just to eat. Forget the camping! - tiredsahm

We were off to a rocky start due to overbooking and someone being on our new spot. However, I will say that the service provided from the staff was 5 star. They did everything they could to make it right and work for us. The bathrooms were basic but very clean. Some over brush could be handled in this park but overall, a clean campground. Nice pool, fun zone, campstore and holiday weekend festivities. The bounce pillow busted during our stay and my kids were bummed that it never was able to be fixed. No worries, there was still a playground right next to it. Overall, good campground and great staff. We would camp here again. - Lilwolfpup

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 _

Biked from Richmond, VA to the Chickahominy Campground. For those of you who may not know, it is on the Trans Am Bike Route, a 4,300 mile trek from Yorktown, VA to Astoria, OR!! So... you might think it should be biker friendly. A little pricey for no frills camping- no hookups will cost you about $30 for a site. But hot showers do not cost ya! The real problem is the noise at night. This is the second time I have biked from Richmond to the Chickahominy Campground in as many months. Both times, same problem. Very loud and very inconsiderate campers!! Quiet time is supposed to be after 10 PM. First time camping there things didn't quiet down until after midnight. This last time, it lasted until almost 2 AM. Mentioned to staff. Nothing they can do as no one is on site. If it gets too bad, suggested I call police. Yeah, right!!! And then spend the night next to people after doing that??? Had to get up early in the morning each time and drag my butt back to Richmond on a bike with 35+ pounds of gear after little sleep. Not fun! So... if you want to party until late in the night, might be a great place to camp. But if you want/need to sleep, look elsewhere!! - ESva

This is a nice local park run by Jame City County with a great location along the river. If you are into boating and fishing, this is a great place for both. It is not a large campground and has the feel of a smaller one, but with plenty to do if you want to. The downside to this campground is that the sites need to be re-graveled; because it rained prior to our arrival and while we were there (not the campgrounds fault) and all the low spots showed up and there was alot of mud, unfortunately. The restrooms are average at best, and what you would expect for a county park. There is no cable TV or WiFi but there was good cell phone reception and the TV antenna picked up plenty of local stations from Richmond and Norfolk. With some camp site maintenance this could be a much better park without a tremendous amount of work. If we were to stay here again, we would ask for site 321 - it seemed to sit the highest with plenty of room for big rigs and a beautiful view over the river. - dadseven

Great local campground on river. Minutes from shopping in Williamsburg. Our trip consists of women shopping while men fish. Win win. Great river view sites available. - Diamond d

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

Decent place to stay to come visit Colonial Williamsburg & surrounding areas. Sites in the front section can be tight, but a lot of them have shade. Some are pull-thru & some are back-in. Our 50 amp, pull-thru, FHU site was level and was in the back section. There are small trees in this section, so no shade. I'm guessing this section is newer, so as the trees grow, they'll hopefully produce some shade. The sites are spaced well, and the way they are staggered makes it nice and spacious. Site is a concrete slab with a concrete patio. There is a parking space for 1 vehicle. They have a visitors overflow parking lot if you have more than 1 vehicle, which we did. Friendly, easy check-in. There's a nice pool along with a water slide (fee). The putt-putt didn't look usable - we didn't ask. Excellent WIFI & good cable. Easily accessible off I-64. We would stay here again if in the area. - Gayle E.

This is an older park and some of the facilities are showing their age. The site was very level and did accommodate both our 40 ft MH and our tow vehicle. Concrete patio has a large by very dilapidated wooden picnic table. Grass area around site is pretty sparse. Streets are narrow, so if you have a bigger rig, make sure you turn wide when turning into your row. WiFi was great. Park was quiet except for trains at night. Some sites face an accumulation of construction equipment, so would ask about that when booking. - Carol Warren

Very pleasant park to stay while touring the historic triangle or just relaxing with friends and family. Easy access, friendly staff and level cemented sites and patios. Sites are close yet are staggered to provide a feeling of space. Roads are narrow which makes entering and leaving a site a challenge for longer rvs. The trees provide shade and a challenge to get satellite reception. Wifi is adequate for limited use. Observing fireflies at dusk was a real bonus. We enjoyed our stay here. - Roger H.

Very nice Thousand Trails. Fairly level asphalt/dirt 50 amp full hookup kind of pull-through sites. Great electricity, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and nice game room. Roads are slightly tight and you probably will have to back out of your pull-through site. You must pay for cable if you want because there are many trees, but over the air is great. Would have rated higher but you must also pay for Internet, however cell service is great for hotspot. Would certainly stay again. - teepee51

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

Older park in need of maintenance. It works fine for a visit to the historical cities nearby. Sites themselves are ok, the grass is mowed and hookups are easily accessible. Some are under trees but most in open fields. Showers, laundry, LP fill station and pavillion all are non functional. - PhredFromIL

Now called Williamsburg CampPark
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
Nov 2016 - $32.00
This is an excellent small park. It is clean and well maintained. All employees were very friendly and helpful. Excellent Wifi and was satellite friendly.
Only negative is it is very close to the RR tracks and some road noise. We would stay again but be aware of the noise issues.
Overall loved the park for a short stay. - Dmcgrew

Small privately owned park with an amazing staff. Our corner lot was large and has a large dog walking area near the entrance to the park. It is right on the train tracks but they didn't bother us at all. We stayed 6 weeks and it was always very clean and well kept. We had a great stay and will come back if in the area. - Rowendora
Oct 2016 - $20.00
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

I think I would have had a different experience if I had stayed in the "quiet" side. At $77 per night, I expect a lot. The Colonial side (the one I am in; I was not aware of "the other side") is full of families, and looks to be the hip place if you have kids. I do not. Mine is all grown up. So this is kinda unpleasant for me. I can't get into the pool because there are (I counted them) 22 kids in there, and anymore, that's just too much spit and snot for me. The kids are running about having fun, and being kids, and that's loud.
I would have liked the option to be on the old fuddy-duddy side, but that wasn't given to me. Now that I know, I'm bitter... grumpy old fart, lol. The pool looks nice (although a bit murky now at 4:30pm), lots of fun things for kids. But don't stay here if you're retired and looking for peace. Lots are spacious and offer some shade. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring, picnic table and patio.
THERE IS ANOTHER SIDE, the Williamsburg side. Avoid the Colonial side unless you have the grandkids with you. OH, my site was NOT level, it is graded to the right. The cable is good, but I only have 1 bar for Atnt, and I work from "home." There was a bunch of dog-food dumped in the driveway I had to clean up because my prissy dog can't have that kind of food. - User3597

Our family choose to stay at the Williamsburg KOA for our first ever travel trailer camping experience, and overall it was a great one! We were placed at a site just inside the entrace of the Colonial side (there are actually two campgrounds at this KOA, Colonial and Williamsburg...Colonial is geared more towards the kiddos with jumping pillows and splash pad at the pool). The site ended up being perfect for us as it was close to the jumping pads, store, and a playground down the hill. All facilities we visited were clean and well kept (pool, game/activity room, jumping pads), and the nature trail was a nice touch as well (essentially a packed clay ATV trail with offshoot trails that made for good exploring). Campground was very peaceful on the upper Colonial side, with good shade from the trees and no road noise at all. While we did not go out into Williamsburg for the attractions, they are obviously close by, and if you want to go out to dinner one night, a quick drive offers some nice options. My only constructive comments for improvements are: the pool deck and splash pad were EXTREMELY slippery, along with the bottom of the pool. Recommend wearing shower shoes/flip-flops to improve traction, as those who did seemed to be having an easier time preventing falls! I also felt like the playground equipment was a bit lacking (swings and monkey bars). They have a great field that would be perfect space for investing in a large playground. While the bathrooms were clean (we only used the ones at the office), fixtures and countertops were in need of repair due to normal wear and tear water damage. Finally, the cash register system at the pool store (ice cream) gave the operator fits both times we went to the store. Perhaps a computer system update to a windows based program (versus DOS) could help with that? All in all, however, we had a GREAT time and a very successful first camping trip in our new trailer, and would definitely visit again! - GoHuskies98

The cabin was cute, clean and comfortable; the a/c worked great, the grounds were clean and well-kept as were the bath houses. All the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. - JillMC
