21 Parks near Cheatham Annex Naval Station, Virginia
Mar 2016 - $30.00
Great Campground but because of it's location best to make reservations in the summer months. In the past I had much trouble with the free Navy MWR WiFi but finally solved it with an exterior signal booster antenna. Not all sites have fire rings. TV is analog so the picture is grainy. However, you can get several sharp digital TV stations via antenna for local, national news and weather. All but a few sites are level. Remember this is a military installation so be prepared to be awakened by the National Anthem every morning at 8 am and colors at sunset. - Hollidayt

Great military FamCamp located close to Williamsburg.
Only downside was lack of cleaning in the restrooms and showers. Same trash there for the fours days we stayed.
Small mini-mart and gas station close by. - thetravelkids

Just raised their rates, did not tell their reservation service as my eMail confirmation says $25. This is a wonderful park. No Commissary or amenities here. Fort Eustis has those down the road 10 miles near Newport News. - DigMyPast

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

This is a very small park. Lots of tents. The sites are very small also. This park is next to a main road with lots of traffic and a train also. The sites are large gravel rocks and are not quite level enough for a class A on some sites. They have a dirt(used to be grass) patio that is very small. It is not that much closer to Williamsburg than the Heritage Campground so that's where I would stay next time. - pcmike

An older campground located on the North side of Newport News. Convenient location with plenty of activities in the park and nearby. The paved roads are narrow and winding making it difficult for very long rigs. Most sites designed for smaller rigs. It took awhile to find one to back into, but they have plenty to choose from. - Bburgbrewer

No sewer but yes they have a dump. This park is very quiet with plenty of biking and hiking available. They also have fishing and small boat rentals. It is the perfect location for the Williamsburg triangle of history. Some sites are level but many are not but are doable, bring blocks of wood. Everything you need is close by, but while you're in the park you feel like you're miles from everyone. - BSBren

It has become a very expensive park with poor maintenance, uninformed park personnel, and we were eaten alive with sand fleas and mosquitoes.
Asphalt sites are not wide enough, and the asphalt is crumbling and if it rains the sites become a big puddle.
Great scenic park for a bike ride, hiking, or paddle boating. - Traveling Dan

We stayed in the Colonial side. The pool is large and includes a splash pad. They have two jumping pillows, one for ages 2-6 and one for 7+, which is nice. They took us to our spot via golfcart and made sure we had everything we needed. The campground was not full and they did a nice job of spacing the campers out so we weren't on top of each other unnecessarily. The spots are nicely sized so that you aren't crammed in but close enough to be friendly if you are so inclined. VERY flat site, with heavy stone, not gravel. Lots of shade! We had a Deluxe full hook-up back in so we had a paver patio, fire ring, swing, and picnic table. Very clean and nice. Bathrooms were clean, showers could be bigger (I carry a lot of junk with me to the shower), small bench for bag and two hooks on the door so it was fine if not spacious. Ice cream available at the pool. We would stay there again! - Indygirl1

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

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

We stayed here during the week checking in on Mon and out on Fri. I was nervous about staying at this campground after all the reviews I have read on different sites, but was pleasantly surprised with our stay. Checking in was quick and easy. Was quickly escorted to our site and asked if we had any questions. The pool and water zone area are very clean. The concession stand was quick with food prices reasonable. It did rain quite heavy one afternoon, so there were large puddles around the campground but that is to be expected with how hard and amount of rain received in a short time period. On the left side of campground appeared to be seasonal campers. Did not drive over to that side but from those that we saw the sites looked to be well taken care of. Campers and workers all seemed to be pleasant. Short drive to Yorktown and Williamsburg. Would camp here again. - Mom to 3 boys

This was our second stay at this Yogi Bear. The first time was when they were just switching over to a Yogi Bear campground so we thought we would give them another try since the first trip was not a favorable one. This time we got a pull-through on the back side of the common field area, which was site #30. The site was level in certain places and had some shade. The sewer, power, cable and water connections worked and located near the middle of the site. The sites are very close together. The only problem is this area does not drain well so if any small to moderate amount of rain comes, your site will flood with lots of standing water (up to your ankles). This was a holiday weekend so the park was full and they had lots of staff on hand. This site is directly located on the main back road so you get all the dust kicked up by all the vehicles and golf cart traffic. They have a speed limit for all vehicles including the golf carts but no one obeys it especially the staff members flying back and forth on their golf carts. Nothing is more frustrating then trying to eat a meal at your site with dust just covering you and your food with golf carts buzzing by you like worker bees. The price you pay for the site is way too high for the small overcrowded pool and basic park amenities. The park is filled with local folks that live on average 10 to 30 minutes away so they utilize the day pass option for fishing, crabbing and boat launch. The next time we come back to the area, we'll look for other campground options in Williamsburg or the Chesapeake Bay / Virginia Beach area. - NC RV Travler

This campground has a large number of permanent campers who are not very friendly and act like they own the whole park. During our whole stay we felt like we were in a trailer park that nobody wanted us in. The pool area and playground are too small and were always packed. We will never return to this park, by far the worst place we have ever stayed simply because we felt so unwelcome by the regulars. Also the small pool and water park are open to the locals, a lot of wild teens. Too crowded and unsafe for small kids. We wasted a lot of money here because they wouldn't allow us a refund. Never again. - Skip the hammer jiblet

Our stay was shortened at American Heritage due to an emergency at home, however, we hope to go back as soon as we can arrange the time. This park is the BEST! There are two types of campsites, regular which includes all hook ups a concrete pad and patio and deluxe. The deluxe sites also have concrete pads and patios but include as well beautiful stone boundary walls with built in fire pits, fixed grills and patio tables with umbrellas and that seat six! The pool on site was beautiful, clean and had lots of tables and chairs on the deck. The park paid a great deal of attention to details to make it a lovely place to enjoy your stay. They also offer 3 nature trails. We were only able to do one of them. They also have a good sized dog run, which unfortunately we didn't get to take advantage of either. We cant wait to go back! - krmihalk

This campground is a bit of a contradiction. The front is very nice, with lots of shade trees. There is a playground and a good pool. The deluxe sites have beautiful patios with furniture and fire pits. Our site was very nice even though we were across from the bathroom which is never my first choice, but I was surprised when I walked further back into the campground. It looks like they are still in the process of expanding and the sites near the back are not nearly as nice. There are hardly any trees and a bunch of construction equipment is parked just beyond the last row of campsites. I would have been very unhappy if that was my view. Also, there is an opening in the fence at the beginning of row 7 that shows a yard filled with junk. Not sure if that land belongs to the campground, but if you are in campsite #57, that's the view from your picnic table! Ask for something in rows 1-8 (except for #57) and you should be happy. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. - Peglegtraveler

We stayed in site 39. Pull through, concrete pad and patio, full hookups. The site was well maintained and the park was quite nice. If you wanted a fire you had to request a fire ring as opposed to it being on the site permanently. I believe there were built in rings on the deluxe sites. Where we were was very shaded, the other sites in the back were not but slightly bigger.
Laundry area needs some updates. We used it but wasn't up to par with their bathhouse which was very nice.
We will use them if we are in the area again. Just not in the summer...it was HOTTT. We would request site 39 again. - MissAlaineous

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

Typical Thousand Trails....old park, aging infrastructure, unlevel & tight sites, rules not enforced, most sites taken by annuals or seasonal campers, etc. Office staff were nice. The workers do the best they can with the budget they have to work within. Up and back interior roads narrow and confusing. Several tight turns. Many trees need to be removed. Watch out for big remnants of old stumps, even in your car. Nice newly redone miniature golf. Indoor pool and hot tub nice. Outdoor pool and hot tub were closed for the season. Shuffleboard and basketball. Also tennis court painted also for pickleball, but court surface is rough asphalt and you have to install the net yourself. (According to the staff, too much trouble with net and other sporting equipment being damaged, stolen, or not returned.) - dndrv

We enjoy camping here each year. We stay in the newer loop (B). The campsites are well maintained with picnic table and fire ring, and the roads are wide and clear for navigating a large rig. The driveway is paved with a pebble rock area for the fire, and picnic table. Super easy to back in (or pull through) and level. Most sites have shade during most of the day. In the other loop (A), the sites are smaller, not paved, have picnic table and fire ring but more shade. Bath houses are a short walk away and clean. It's WAY off the main road so very dark and quiet. There is a nice walking/ biking path, playgrounds, and beach (though not for swimming). We do like to walk to the beach and walk along the water: it's just beautiful. It is not within site of the camping area, but the walk is not too far. (Unless you have little kids but there is parking near the start of the trail.) The pool is nice and well maintained, with a diving board, life guards and snack bar. The only thing I would change about this campground is the location of the playground. It is outside of the campground. It's within bike riding distance but really too far to walk to with little ones. The same for the pool really. It's a little closer, but too far to walk with heavy pool bags or little kids. However, there is plenty of parking near both. The reservations used to be first come, first served. They are changing to site specific reservations, but there really isn't a bad site at this campground. They have buddy sites so 2 campers can be near each other and these might not be pleasant if you didn't know the other person, but the other sites are pretty private. - mattifer

SInce the last reviews were in 2014, here is an update. The CG continues to be one of the best around and continues to be well maintained. There are two camping loops. Loop A is the best for travel trailers and motor homes. All the Loop A sites are paved and have an adjacent fire ring and tent pad. We set up our screen tent with plenty of room to spare. The water pressure is good and the electricity very stable. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. Since we arrived on a Tuesday and departed on Friday, there were not many people there. However, even if the park was full, it would not feel crowded. Loop B has undergone some improvements. The odd sites from 1 - 9 are now level and the surfaces have been re-graveled. The same for site 29. The other sites in Loop B are probably best suited for tent camping or small trailers. These are not particularly level but have excellent pea stone tent platforms.
All that being said, this is an excellent state park with plenty to do and wonderful walking trails. There are plenty of places to visit nearby and Williamsburg and Jamestown Island are just a short ferry ride away.
We will definitely be back. - SchnoodleCamp

This is a clean and lovely state park. The roads in and out were perfect and the displays and historic buildings are very interesting. We had a nice time visiting Smithfield and two great restaurants in which we had lunch. - LindaVA1

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

A lovely park on the banks of the Chickahominy River. Unfortunately due to the amount of tall vegetation it is hard to see the water from the water front sites. We did not pay the extra $12 PER night for sewer hook-up so we did not have a water view. I think the rates are rather high since cable and WiFi is not included. Even though we had a huge tree on our site we were able to get satellite service and over the air reception. Lots of fisherman putting in at the ramp since there is a big tournament starting on Thursday but they were not intrusive. Will agree with a previous poster that the roads need attention; lots of potholes. Also the dump area needs attention. Very muddy place. Doesn't seem very sanitary. It needs to be surrounded by cement. We would probably stay here again. - User2209
