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

Easy access. Site was gravel & a little bit of work to get level but not too much trouble. Location is superb. A beautiful lake & creek. Nice to walk around this large park. The pool looked nice though we didn't use it. Lots of trees so good shade. WiFi not great. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. - Mgsid

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

We stayed in one of the cottages. First of all, no grill....really!!?! The landscaping was unkempt, the pool house restrooms were disgusting, some of the piers were broken and very hazardously floating in the river, the cottage itself was nice but was very hard to take a shower with the hot water that came straight from hell itself. There was no cold water (this was even after adjusting the hot water heater temp) The funzone was closed, the playground was dilapidated...also, the bounce pillow had a hole in it that made jumping extremely dangerous for a young child. The refrigerator constantly leaked (on the inside and out). I feel that the website is not an accurate description of this campground. Maybe this place was awesome years ago, but definitely not the case now. We were very disappointed and will never return. - SmithMHMKC

We had a standard site which meant it had full hookups including cable (which was not very good - the antenna worked better). The site was in an open field and we were fortunate enough to have shade from the trees. The power pedestal did not have a shutoff switch so we had to connect directly to power with no protection when plugging in. The restrooms were very nice but, during the four nights we were there, the trash was never emptied. My husband commented that the commodes in the mens' room needed some maintenance. Showers were separate from the restrooms and were individual. There were vents but no air conditioning. Temperatures during our stay were in the 90s. The deluxe and patio sites were somewhat an improvement over standard sites but, other than concrete pads, had little to offer. It's not a bad campground but could use some TLC to entice more campers. We did not use the pool but it was beautiful and had a splash pad for the little visitors. I got the feeling it was more for the folks who were in the seasonal and annual sites that comprised the greater portion of the campground than for the short term visitors. There was a pavilion, a Fun Zone for kids and an amphitheater that were not open during our stay. There is a restaurant on site that is open some of the time and offers takeout. We would return if in the area only because it has more affordable rates than other campgrounds nearer the Williamsburg area. - grandma0942

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

I stayed in area of park that had tent sites (electric only or no utilities). Bath house a little dirty but acceptable. Some noise issues the first night with kids in adjacent camp sites, but management was responsive the next day and noise was not repeated the next night. The boaters were out as early as 6am on Saturday, and did get waken up multiple times by engine noise. Would recommend ear plugs or white noise device. When I walked around the RV sites, they seemed pretty close together to me. Best sites looked like 321 and 331 for being most spacious and 321 right on river front. Seemed like if you had a large rig the roads might be a little tight and difficult to maneuver on the loop along the river. If you are looking for quiet and isolation, your best bet seems to be on the basic or electric only sites, and the farther away from the bath house the better. Overall fairly clean. Level site. Had picnic table but no fire ring. Lots of space for kids to run around. - DawgDen

Lovely secret gem that's only minutes away from local attractions. We have stayed in other parks and the value can't be beat here. No wifi but I'm tent camping not glamping. Sites are larger than a lot of public space campgrounds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They are currently upgrading some of the park's electric only sites. The bath house was well maintained and was kept clean throughout our 5 night stay. No trains to wake you up like a few other places and just as close if not closer to Water Country and Busch Gardens. Lots to do onsite as well. Boating, driving range, large pool with splash pad. Definitely returning! - Fulltiminwhileyoung

Very nice campground for a County facility. Spacious sites. The location of services was a bit haphazard, but not problematic. We did get some odd looks when we left our trailer in suit and cocktail dress for a wedding we were attending, but hey - that's the variety of camping. The campground is quiet and off the beaten path. A very nice base for the area. Not cheap, but not expensive for the area either. - Mark and Cindi L

Williamsburg Christian Retreat Center has camps for children and provides space for groups to worship, and for anyone to have a time of retreat and relaxation. While this is true, the campground is open to all and you may come and go as you like. The campground is separated from the area where the children are playing while at camp and is very quiet. There is a pool on site that is open to those camping there. The campground is very wooded and nice. The sites are not large, but are separated nicely from each other. We drove at least 20 minutes to get to Historic Willaimsburg, but did not mind being out of the tangle of roads around the more tourist oriented area. The people at Williamsburg Retreat Center are VERY helpful. We ran late arriving and they called us to make sure we knew where to find the papers with instructions, campsite information, and helpful phone numbers upon our arrival. They also shared with us very helpful information concerning visiting Williamsburg and the other attractions. - TN Vogels

The campground is a separate section of the Christian Retreat. From the paved Barnes Road, you follow a winding compacted, well-maintained gravel road about 1/4 mile long to the camp office. Friendly staff. The RV campsite is a circular campground with a bath house in the center. There is a forest of 75-100' trees all around. Very quiet. All sites are back-ins but the road is wide enough to do so. Site #9 is the only one with 50A - all the others are 30A. Plenty of large wide open space to walk. No CATV but some OTA channels 45+ miles away. - scarpacci

Great, but small 22 spot CG located on a 300 acre Christian Retreat. Through the week there was little activity and we are afforded the use of all of the recreational things they offer. Road to main entrance is a little narrow and "windy" for big rigs. All sites are on a single loop in thick woods; the bath house is in the center. Full hookups, picnic table and a fire ring on a concrete pad. Four sites looked permanent. Firewood was $5 for a wheelbarrow load. Overall a slightly rustic place, but well worth it. We will be back ! - KenAndrews

Campsites pictured on AH website are not what you get! We were assigned site 69 for our 35' RV. Site is an end one and extremely tight. Had a difficult time backing into the site. Pictures for full hookup show ample space between sites: this is not the case. One adult can barely walk between our site and the next one. Rig barely fit on slab. Talked with front desk woman, showed her pictures and she would not acknowledge we had been assigned an inappropriate site for our rig. When I pressed, her goal was to get me out of the office by saying "I need to wait on this next guest". Excuse me: I was a guest! We are long time RV campers throughout the US (9 years) and WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAMPGROUND TO MOTORHOME OWNERS. - Harghund

This is an excellent choice when visiting the Williamsburg, VA area. The park is located at the end of a street in a residential area. Upon entering you are greeted with a big park and LOTS of elbow room! The sites are nice and wide and plenty long. Many of the sites have concrete stove-type fire pit/ovens and nice patio furniture with umbrellas. There are tons of trees making the park nice and shady. There is a nice pool, general store, dog run (although it is far away from the road and looks like a great place to be eaten by mosquitoes, so we didn't bother), and a giant blow-up slide for kids that looks like FUN! The interior roads are roomy and the entire front of the park has concrete pads. Our nightly rate of $40 was based on a monthly rate - and there is PLENTY to keep you busy in this area for a month or more! Great park - we will return. - jjones5996

Beautiful park, friendly staff, perfect location. The spaces are a nice size and the park is conveniently located to Colonial Williamsburg. Great location for day trips to Virginia Beach, Yorktown, and/or Jamestown. - TXRoadWarrior

We really enjoyed our stay! I especially appreciated the guy that checked me in and drove me around on the golf cart to find a site we would like. He was so helpful and went above and beyond. Our site was not very level, but with some blocks under the tires we made it work, and we really liked the site being on the end of a row so we had some extra space and didn't feel crowded by a neighbor. We also appreciated having full hookups with 50 amp, and the fact that we could receive packages there. We enjoyed all the amenities like the indoor pool/hot tub, mini golf and basketball court. Verizon and AT&T worked well also. I will add that, as is typical with so many Thousand Trails, there are so many sites taken by annual or seasonal renters. It's getting harder and harder to find good sites at TT parks since they seem to rent them all out to long term stationary RVers. - Love2Camp777

Very convenient location to Colonial Williamsburg and other nearby places of interest. VERY friendly and helpful staff. OK, now I'm done with the good stuff.
The first thing you see is an abandoned eyesore of a building, right at the entrance to the park. Broken windows, rotting wood, clearly falling apart. Perhaps it used to be the park office? It should be torn down.
Had to use a hard-to-hear intercom to get into the park, directions were to follow the painted arrows. Good luck with that, the arrows are pretty darn faded. Since it was just after dark, I was delighted when the staff helped us find and back into a space. Delight was now over.
1. There are NO level sites in this campground. 2. Most sites are uncomfortably close together, and the park feels very cramped. 3. 75% or more of all sites are taken by seasonal campers, more than I've ever seen in any Thousand Trails location. 4. Sewer hookup at our site had habit of backing up after a little more than 20 gallons of waste. Luckily what ran on the ground was grey water, not black. 5. Did not enter a bath house (none in our section of the park), but the ones we looked at were really in bad shape from the outside. 6. Other buildings (office & clubhouse) looked very shabby from outside, with wood that needs paint or replacement. 7. WIFI strong and fast, price was reasonable for a week. Did not use cable TV, although it was available.
This was the most disappointing Thousand Trails facility we've ever visited. - RamjetPA

The roads into and inside the park are good. This is a very large park, but most of it is not used any more. Check in was fast and friendly. The park is well maintained and quiet. We were in Site F-3, a level pull through with full hook ups, no issues with the hook ups. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. For the first few days we had lots of room but, once every site was filled, we were pretty tight - our awning was almost touching our neighbor. There is a pool but no chairs, no laundry room and we did not use the bathrooms. Plenty of open space for dog walking - no dog park. WiFi was okay but spotty at times. Verizon signal was strong. We stayed May 20 - 28, 2018 and paid $27.00 a night with a combination of Passport America and their weekly rate. - BarrettsHappyTrails

This is a very tired, very big rv park. Years ago probably best around. Hasn't been upgraded in years. The pros. If you don't need bathroom facilities this is the place to be. Fairly good internet. Quiet, peaceful and very roomy. Walmart and strip mall about a mile away. Great home base to visit the historic towns in this area. The manager is very easy to deal with. I would stay here again. - The Horse

Office closes early. Site was adequate. Sites they consider pull thru are only pull through if there is no one on the site in front/behind you. Staff were friendly and tried to be accommodating, but there was only one person on duty at any point during our stay. - Debbie1105

I say the value was bad for the price we paid for what we got. This park is sandwiched between a busy highway and a very busy railroad track. The only saving grace was the trains didn't use their whistle as they barrelled through at 50 mph, plenty noisy.
Upon arrival they tried to charge us $80/night because there was an extra $10 for the 3 nights of the weekend and no discounts on the weekend. I said no way as I was not informed upon booking my reservation: they removed the fee.
The above rate reflects 3 nights with 10% Good Sam and 4 nights with 50% Passport America discounts, still pretty pricey for what we got. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - mdjr

Loved this park even though it was small, compact and noisy. The people are very friendly and helpful. Site was gravel and level. Very convenient to Williamsburg Jamestown and Yorktown. The trains are very loud on one side and a busy road on the other. But like one review said by the time you get finish touring everything you just want to rest and we did. I in fact didn't want to leave because of the location. - Gmann

Easy access from I64. A very quiet and clean campground. Great activities for children. We did not use, but they have a very nice heated pool. Close to shopping and restaurants. We will be back. - Rewcrew

Had a little snafu with being assigned a site in the wrong area of the campground. I was a little frustrated at first because I had called ahead to discuss where the sites were that where associated with the different types of sites online. After speaking to a woman at the campground she assured me that when I booked if I gave them a list of preferred sites that they would do their best to accommodate them, and she assured me she would make sure the site was roomy enough to accommodate our superslide. We submitted about 10-15 sites in the E section, but when we arrived they assigned us a site in the D section. I expressed right away that it was in the incorrect area, but they told me that was roomier for our slide. We were escorted to the site only to find they were really close together. We told the escort that we were unhappy with the site. He headed back to the office and got the site reassigned to one of the original requested sites we requested. Once settled we were really pleased with EVERYTHING else about the campground. Bathhouses are clean and beautiful, pool was lovely and clean - bounce was fun, and the zipline playground was a blast. Staff was friendly & helpful. We were fortunate to be there when the campground was mostly empty and most of the time we had the pool to ourselves which was great! Wish this campground was closer to my home - we would definitely stay again! - Trailer Camper
