22 Parks near Gloucester, Virginia

The rate reflects the Thousand Trails club price, $3 daily fee plus $3 per day for 50 amp. Not all TT parks charge the 50 amp fee, so it frustrates me when we do have to pay. Typical TT park that is way off of the beaten path and I hate the narrow winding roads we travel to get to nearly every park. We did have a nice, level, and shady site fairly close to the swimming pool. They re-opened the adult swimming pool and it was nice, but the people were not. Loud, obnoxious, rude people in the pool so we did not stay. That is not the fault of the park, just our luck for the day. Plenty of space to ride bikes, walk, jog, and enjoy the lake. Seemed to have lots of activities for people of all ages. If I was in the area, I would return. - Highway Star

Before I talk about the campground, I want to say a word about the ice cream in the store: GREAT. What a deal - $2.70 will buy you what they call 1 scoop but which I would call 2 1/2 scoops and - you can get two flavors in this '1' scoop. Now, about the campground, the sites are large, level (where are were) and grassy with a picnic table and a fire pit. We backed into the woods so it was fairly private. The sites are gravel. There are actually some nice trails around the park that I'm sure not many take. We prefer the campground atmosphere of TT to a manicured resort and this fit the bill. It is about 45 minutes to Yorktown, Jamestown, and Williamsburg. It is also about 55 minutes from Richmond. We enjoyed breakfast at Olivia's in the Village in Gloucester. l would most definitely camp here again. - swike

Great place for kids. Daily and weekend planned activities. Lots of things for families to do from kayaks, fishing, camp store, fire ring and picnic table at each site, paddle boats, boat ramp and boat cleaning station, dog park, prepared food, two nice pools. Trash pickup done at your site by the staff. I think we got a 15% off military discount as well. The camp store is newly remodeled and is large. Interior roads need several improvements and more gravel as there is several potholes. Electric golf carts are allowed only. No gas powered carts. Quiet hours start at 11 pm. Good place. Will go again. - A M

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have stayed at this place many times in the past and this was the last time this year and probably in long term. The workers are excellent and they do their job really well. My site Rockfish didn't drain well; when I arrived, the place was wet with water accumulation exactly where my access door was. Sunday was a rainy day and the water went over my shoes. These guys make reasonable money to properly level the sites and assure a good drainage. They advertise WFI and it is never accessible, signal is basically nothing. The water pressure is horrible and sometimes I need to remove the pressure regulator (high flow) to get some water in the shower. The place has a nice view and excellent personnel, but owner needs put more attention to details. Too much money to get my feet inside the water just to go out of my RV. - Pedrito

Stayed for a week. Would not give me a code for the front gate. Had to press the "call" button and ask for permission to enter every single time. Arrived on Sunday. Got to site and saw very little shade. When booking I asked if the site had shade. They said yes. It does. But only at the one end and only by a 16' tree. They were willing to move us to grass site w/ much more. Wife liked the paved site. I had about 20 cigarette butts around my site from previous user. They had cleaned up other sites on Tuesday. Would have been nice if they got to mine before 5 on Sunday. No hand dipped ice cream. Over all this is nit-picking. But one thing ticked us was the golf cart cruising Fri. Sat. Sun. nights from 5 to 10:30 some w/ music blasting, all w/ bright lights. And fast. Staff was nice, neighbors were nice. Water was nice. But what the heck is up w/ no fire rings! Not safe, only on "super sites" And those rings were like 36" dia. w/ a 12" wide wall and 14" deep, couldn't cook on them if we had them. - Splinter
