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

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

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

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
Jul 2015 - $65.00
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

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

This was our second time at this campground. Since our last stay it has become almost exclusively a seasonal camper campground. The sites left for transients are pretty much the leftovers no one wanted. I got to my assigned site and found a car parked in it (belonged to a campground employee) which required getting office staff to come and push it off the site. While I was waiting for this to happen I was accosted by a "seasonal" camper who very belligerently told me I was "blocking the road" and he wanted me to move my 50 plus feet of truck and trailer so he could get by with his compact car. There are multiple side roads he could take. I didn't need this after just driving for 3 hours, and the car on the site. Very unpleasant experience.
Beach is great for kids, as you can walk to China and still be only up to your knees. Dogs not allowed on beach at any time and no other place for them to run. Lots and lots of golf carts stirring up dust at all hours. I guess if you're a seasonal camper this would be just fine, but it is terrible for transient campers.
Not big rig friendly at all, narrow roads with some impossible turns and lots of tight turns. - scjenk

New Point Campground located on the Chesapeake Bay is a hidden gem. Hidden because it is rural and you have to want to go there not just pull off the highway. Gem because it has something for all ages and after being allowed to run down by previous owners has been completely restored to a status beyond any other resort in the area. We love the pool but walking the beach, swimming and floating in the bay, watching families play in the calm water, crabbing and casting a line make it a very special place. Walking dogs along nature trail on the Bay, making friends sitting and sunning on the nice stretch of beach, watch jet skis, kayaks and boats bobbing along in deeper channels, riding golf cart around property, going to pavilion for organized meals and activities, enjoying music beachside on a balmy night, venturing into town of Mathews for browsing in Main Street shops or for a nice meal. Recommend you try it...you won't be disappointed! - jmo

As others have said, most of the campground is permanent sites and we found that most were in decent shape. The non-permanent sites were very small, can you say packed like sardines? Our awning was only a few feet from the slideout of the camper next to us. The constant traffic from golf carts and pedal cars was extremely annoying and their speeds and driver ages didn't appear to be monitored. The permanent sites at Q4 and Q5 have installed their own halogen streetlight on a 10 foot pole which they turn on at sunset and were not receptive to conversations asking to turn it off since it lit all adjacent sites like daytime. The office was not much help with this issue either. We do not recommend this campground. - cobra188d

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

Conveniently located for us, just 2.5 miles from friends house. Didn't use the restrooms and showers but they appeared as if they could use some refurbishment. WiFi supposedly available but my computer could never find it. Thick tree cover prevented satellite TV usage but enough over the air stations available. Would stay here again. - kanem

This is an OK campground for a short stay. Get good directions prior to entering campground. If you enter directly to the check in station you will not be able to proceed to your site via camp roads. There is very narrow low water bridge with a 5 ton weight limit. You need to enter by a different street and then walk .5 mile to check in. My site was very crowded to each side and I had to pull my power and water under the RV to an outlet next to another site (shared outlets). My site was dirt and I'm thankful that it did not rain. It would have quickly turned into a mud hole site, but considering price I would use again for an overnight stay. - trav

Sites were mostly being used long term. We were only there for one night. Our site was dirt and had an inch or two of water on it when it rained. Never did see campground host. Bathrooms and showers were clean. - kenp
