Date of Stay: November, 2009 - $10.00
Campground is located in suburban area of Hampton at the rear of a 100 acre city park. Park office is located nearby and staff are very helpful and friendly. Sites are fairly grass/gravel with large evergreens providing shade. Electric is 30amp. Water & electric are padlocked until you register. Arrive before 4:30 otherwise you will have to camp rough for the night/weekend unless you can catch the caretaker cleaning the showers, or driving through the grounds. HRT (bus) stops 400 yards from campground cnr Clemwood Pwy & Little Back River Rd & covers Hampton, Virginia Beach & Newport pretty well. $3.50 buys all day pass. $5.50 allows use of ferries & express buses. Park locked after dark, however road through Campground left open (turn left at 7-11 on Back River Rd) - which creates traffic - especially in the early morning. Nearby Air Force base (other side of bay) also can be noisy - but only during daylight hours. Great place to stay if you have business/visits to do in Hampton/Virginia Beach area & don't have other transport. We camped at Gosnold's Hope Park Campground in a Motorhome.
