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

People go out of their way to be friendly and helpful, everywhere in the campground. Very clean, gravel drives. We have a 31 ft rig and it was tight getting it into the slot but we did. Very quiet after 9 PM, all we heard was the Chesapeake and wind. There are some decent restaurants in Mathews, about 4 miles but overpriced and the town is going yuppie. Dinner for 2, ribeye, milkshake, Fish filet and cup of soup came to $65 at Richardsons. It was very noisy but food was good. I will get my own ribeye at a grocery store next time. - Passin Thru

For me, this park was too expensive for the amenities offered at $44.00 per night. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful as my cord wouldn't reach the electric box because of the trees in the way and found a 30 amp extension cord for me. The water did not look fit to drink so I unhooked and used my water tank. The handle to the water hookup was broken so had to use plyers. The restrooms/showers were satisfactory, but I've seen much better at other campgrounds. Overall I would give it a grade of satisfactory. It appears to be more of an extended stay park than a campground. - Colorado Vagabond

The Park is right on the Chesapeake Bay. Beautiful view of sun rise. Facilities are very clean and well maintained. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Fishing, swimming beach, pavilion and play ground. No sewer hook-ups must either tow to dump station or use portable sewer tank and drive it to dump station. Not bad for weekenders and longer than 3-4 days and you will need to dump. No camp store, but convenience store is only about 2 miles and major grocer is about 10. Really nice place to sun and relax and fish. - Gibsonjv

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

Just back from a week at Cherrystone & loved it! The campground was very clean & staff was always friendly. We stayed in our own RV on a WES site. Electric worked great which was needed this week as it was HOT HOT HOT! (AC ran all week!) There were activities all week long, but our group (kids & adults) were happy crabbing, fishing & swimming. Pool area was clean. We also enjoyed floating in the bay on tubes. During low tide you could go out far! Bring water shoes as the shells can be sharp.
The bait shop had plenty of supplies needed for crabbing & fishing. The main store also was well stocked. The Café & ice cream shop had lots of choices too. The guys did a trip on the Miss Jennifer & had a great time! Can't beat $30 pp for 3 hours of fishing. They have a great fish cleaning station near the laundry room. Sunset's were gorgeous - even on cloudy nights!
The only reason it wasn't a 10, was the little things - sewer connection was higher up than our RV connection, the beach area by Pier 4 could have been cleaned up a little (trash from the bay seemed to collected there), Wifi wasn't great but that's OK bc it kept the kids (& adults) off the electronics, pool needs some maintenance (concrete bottom coming up in pieces), all 5 pool tables in arcade were out of order. Again, it was just the little things. All in all, a great trip. - RVingMama

This was our first stay at this campground. We got site #652 for 9 nights. The campground was completely full the first weekend which resulted in a crazy experience with unsupervised children flying around on their bikes at night with no lights on them. This is against the posted rules but no one enforces the rules. I was almost hit several times walking my dog when they come flying up behind you. They also fly up beside and in front moving vehicles so beware! Here's the bad first: the sites are grass covered ( no gravel ) with black dirt under it. When it rains, the water ponds everywhere and doesn't drain for days. Your site becomes a flooded black mushy mess with your tow vehicle sinking into the muck. We put out crab pots in the bay between the campground's piers at low tide and someone later goes out and moves our pots to a completely different spot, turning them over and took our crabs out. This happen twice on two spots. Another camper that I spoke got his crab pot stolen that same day. People need to leave things alone that don't belong to them! The good part: They pick up trash three times a day, the interior roads are mostly paved. The express check-in saved a lot time and effort when we arrived on a sold-out weekend. Otherwise, it would have been a 30 minute plus wait to check in. If you've never been here before, this place is huge so I wanted someone to escort us to our site. If you don't ask, you don't get one. They have a reasonably priced cafe and general store on site. We liked this campground but it was a bit pricey for what they offered. - NC RV Travler

We stayed the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday before Halloween Saturday. The first two nights the campground was empty. Friday night was quite busy with families pulling in and decorating for the big night. Almost every campsite is near the water or has some kind of view of the water. Be aware that some of the waterfront sites have had substantial erosion. There are lots of activities for kids. We put our kayaks in the water and had a very nice paddle. If you like watery sports, there are lots of things to do here. We ran into people who have been coming here for 30 years (came as kids, now bringing their kids). Added bonus, the campground is owned by the same family as the Cherrystone Aquaculture Company and they farm clams and oysters right off shore. You can get oysters and clams at a good price from the "plant." The plant is on the same road as the campground, and you can walk, bicycle or golf cart over to pick up yummies. In warm weather they also give tours for a nominal fee. - ShoreXplorers

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

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

This is one of our favorite Thousand Trails parks, adult pool was being redone and the family pool was already done with nice new pool furniture & umbrellas, staff very friendly & helpful, we will return. - DBLR

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

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. - Sandy Potter

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

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
