We stayed 2 nights. The theme park was closed. It opened for weekends on the morning we left. There were no more than 10 sites occupied during our stay. Paid for a "Premium" site. That was a mistake.

The park has easy access to & from Interstate 95. Access could be a problem if the theme park is open.

The interior roads were mostly paved with a few being gravel. The roads were very narrow with tight 90 degree turns. The sites were a mixture of concrete & gravel but narrow. The sites were very close to each other so there wasn't much privacy. The utility connections were about mid way down the sites. The cable connection was below grade. The sites were generally level. It seemed most of the sites had an outside table and fire pit.

The tree canopy made satellite reception hit and miss depending on site assignment.

WiFi reception was adequate for checking email.

The designated fenced pet area was adequate for small to medium sized dogs. It might be a little small for large dogs. It was in a far off corner of the park. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. There was a bag dispenser next to the fenced dog area to pick up waste. There were trash cans around the park to dispose of waste.

No dumpster available but there was site garbage collection.

For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.

Noise (public address system & ride noise) could be heard from the theme park in the campground.

Would not want to stay there when the theme park is open due to daytime noise and campground congestion. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Motorhome.

I reserved a standard site for one night. We have used this campground as a one night stop to and from Florida. We followed the directions to our assigned site and found the girl directed us in the wrong direction as the hookups would have been on the wrong side. So we maneuvered through some sharp turns and returned to the site to discover the site was not long enough. We drove back to the office and they assigned another site which was barely long enough. Then I discovered a note on the electric pedestal stating the sewer was defective. Back to the office and a third site assigned. This site was long enough but then I discovered the sewer hookup was filled to the very top with sewage. Finally I drove to the new elite sites and took a site and called the office to let them know what I did. They were OK with it. This section is only about a year old. Mostly pull thru "buddy sites" tightly fitted. The water pressure is EXTREMELY high. WiFi does not work. Cable TV had about 30 good channels. This will be our last visit to this campground. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Motorhome.

Newly remodeled campground, brand new level concrete sites with 50 amp full hookup, pull-throughs, fits the biggest. Marine pedestal connections. Brand new bath house, camp store, cabins. Feels like RV resort. Downside is that current construction is super noisy, nonstop, dusty, and on Saturdays too. Our new water spigot did not work; campground provided long hose for us to connect to next spigot. Workers are super friendly. Trash pickup from site. Walking distance to park. Shuttle every 30 minutes. Free Wi-Fi super strong. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this campground for its convenience to Kings Dominion. The price was very affordable. The campground is well tended and has trash cans readily available around the park. What a great way to keep the grounds clean! The bathrooms were immaculate: A/C; super clean; smell nice; well lit; conveniently placed; good shower pressure. We had bees nested under our concrete pad. We notified the desk and the Manager came out immediately to inspect. He sent for the appropriate staff, and an Assistant Manager and a woman from the Facilities Dept came right out. They got rid of the bees and the Manager came the next day to ensure that the bees were gone and we were satisfied. We were impressed that some staff were wearing ties. We've already recommended this campground to others and will definitely stay here again. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This was our first time camping at the Kings Dominion Campground for a weekend stay. We got there at 7 PM and was able to check in at the office. I asked if they could switch us to a pull-through site since the web site had none available at the time I placed the reservation. They had a site open up which was a lower rate so they put us in site # 233. I have a 30 ft travel trailer and it was very easy to make the turns into our paved site on the first try. The spot was paved but sloped which put the front of rig downhill. That took a lot of leveling blocks to make bring the front-end up and level. The campground was laid out well with lots of trees for shade behind the office and some sites in a open field in the side nearest to the park. I have small kids so the pool at the campground was a nice treat. The odd thing was the rules at the pool. The life guards are very strict about kids wearing life vests, no goggles with a nose piece or other float toys. The Wi-Fi is strong near the office but gets weaker on the back-side of the park. The shuttle comes every 15 to 20 minutes to and from the park which is an added bonus of not having to pay $15 for parking and it drops you off at the front gate. During the day, you can hear the screams from the riders of the roller coasters and the fireworks at night. The campground is next to the train tracks through the trees which has scheduled trains coming through. We liked this campground since it very close to Kings Dominion and for the shuttle so it’s a good choice when visiting the park. With that in mind, I still think the prices of the sites are a bit high. We’ll be back with it comes time to come back to Kings Dominion for another visit.

We have stayed here before and had a site to the right side of the main road. That area was paved and the sites were mostly level. This visit was a last minute call and we ended up in rustic area behind the office/swimming pool. It took a little work to get level because of the many roots. The water and 50 AMP service were good. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is in the midst of a renovation, with a well stocked, renovated camp store, newly renovated bathrooms and showers, freshly paved interior roads and renovated big rig pull-throughs. Brand new cabins were being installed toward the back of the campground. With that said, we stayed in the water and electric sites that have not yet been renovated, though work has begun there. Site had a level concrete pad, water and electric worked find, though pedestal was old. Nice pool, free Wi-Fi throughout the campground that was strong enough to upload photos, and a free regular shuttle to Kings Dominion. Close to I-95, with little road noise, but an occasional train coming down the nearby rail line did wake me up at night. Very good for an overnight stay off the highway or if you are going to the park. Price reflects a 10% AAA discount, they also take Good Sam or discount if you have a Cedar Fair season pass. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Site we had was gravel and level. They also had concrete pads in the wooded area for smaller trailers/popups. Bathhouse was clean & maintained. Nice pool. $60.90 a night with taxes, a little high, but if you are going to Kings Dominion, they have a shuttle, so you save on the parking fee. They do have some Discount Prices (10%: Good Sam, AAA, Military, AARP, and Season Pass). If your are going to Kings Dominion it is a good location (you can hear the park from the campground).

We've stayed at this park twice in the last couple of years, only because there are no other campgrounds in the area and this one is right off of I-95. This is a large campground but not well taken care of and expensive. The help is horrible and not helpful. They sit in a little hut behind glass and act like you must be a bad guy. You have to ask many questions to make sure they are charging you the right amount. They have many various rates and don't explain them to you. They just charge you what they think is right. We questioned them and then had to get a refund for their errors. The first site they assigned us was only 30amp. We went back and told them we needed 50amp and they gave us another site. When we got to the site, there was no way we could get our 40 foot RV into the spot. We just decided to find our own spot (there were plenty of empty ones), which we did. They have no cable and poor TV reception. There are too many trees for satellite, Wi-Fi at the office only (which is not close) and they have a 13% tax. There just isn't anything to say good about this park. If you can plan your trip so that you don't have to end up at this campground, you will be much happier.

This campground is operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company and has the potential of being an outstanding location, IF the parent company would invest in upgrading the facilities/RV sites. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is now dubbed "Kings Dominion Camp Wilderness." We camped here to visit the amusement park and were very pleased with the park. It is a very clean campground and the restrooms were well maintained during our stay. The campground maintains a well stocked campstore with various RV items and other commodities that are sometimes forgotten and needed on arrival. The campground staff was friendly and professional. The campground offers regular shuttle service to and from the amusement park, saving campers the normal $12 parking fee at the park. The campground is a little noisy due to highway traffic, the distant screams from riders on the "Dominator" coaster and the occasional train and whistle from the grade crossing just west of the campground entrance. While this campground serves as an excellent base for visiting Kings Dominion, it can also serve as a base for many other excursions to points of interest in the greater Richmond Area.

GOOD: Very nice park, right next to the park (you can hear people scream on the roller coasters right from your campsite), clean bathhouse, nice hot water, nice staff. BAD: No cable TV (please add cable: digital receivers get no picture off the air!), Wi-Fi only available at the office and pool, most sites have no sewer, and the prices for firewood, etc. were too high. Had to complain twice about the campers across the road who brought their yappy dog, penned him outside, and left him to yap constantly at least 100 times an hour day and night. (To all campers: PLEASE be considerate. If you have a yappy dog, leave him home, at a kennel, or locked INSIDE your RV. No one cares to hear it!! That's my 2 cents). All in all a nice place. I would go back if I was going to Kings Dominion again. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice, mostly shaded campground conveniently located near Kings Dominion theme park. Campground only half-full this weekend. Great price for full hook-ups - discount for AAA members. No information about campground on the internet, including no map, which was annoying. Thankfully, many sites are of a good size and when we checked in, the friendly greeter said we could basically take whatever site was open (we arrived shortly after dinner on a Friday night). Some pull-through sites are too close however. Free shuttle to park runs every 20 to 15 minutes. Wi-Fi only available at lodge, not throughout park. Nice-sized pool, large sandy area for volleyball and clean clubhouse. If you're visiting Kings Dominion, it would be difficult to find a better place to stay. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our family traveled to Kings Dominion campground so we could visit Kings Dominion amusement park. I was hesitant to book a site since there really is no website to view a site map or photos. But I spoke with a really kind man on the phone and I decided to take a chance. When I booked my site I was informed that it was Kingsfest: a Christian rock weekend. The campground was packed when we arrived. We got a nice flat lot with plenty of room with full hook up. Pool was OK, a little on the cloudy side but it was extremely hot out. Didn't use the showers so I can not comment on their condition. Shuttle bus from the campground to amusement park was great. The first night we were here and the last night of Kingsfest the music was very loud. But after that, the campground was quiet. I would stay again. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Have camped at the King's Dominion Campground many times due to having season passes. I really like this campground because they do not offer anything they cannot provide. The sites are decent size, bathhouses are always clean, people are always nice and the shuttle to the park is fantastic. This is a very nice family friendly campground that I would continue to visit. Especially for a weekend or longer stay. We camped at King's Dominion Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
