We stayed 3 nights on E loop. And it was quiet. The toilets & sinks were clean, but the showers had black mold on the curtains, floor, and walls. We wouldn't use them as they were disgusting. Most of the sites were empty around us, with a few people in the loop near us. Staff at the office are very friendly. There is a laundry room there very clean & reasonable priced. We had broken glass on our site that a staff person leaf blew off where the car was parked. Tons of cigarette butts left by previous camper. Wish smokers picked up their butts. We checked showers on other loops, and all were moldy, dirty, and stunk. It was very hot & humid out and even with flip flops on, we were not going to use the showers. The park offers firewood, rental boats & bikes, and has nice trails. They just need to power wash the showers. They have a cleaning crew that comes in daily, but they are only responsible for the toilets sinks and mirrors. The park is responsible for the showers. Its a shame how bad they are. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Tent.

Stayed in loop B, 50amp site. The site we'd originally chosen had a very steep grade. We drove around and selected another site as plenty to choose from. Actually park sparsely populated throughout our stay, which we thought odd given it was summer. Bathrooms had a funky dirty dog smell to them & may benefit from a deep clean more than what they seem to get. Park has recycling available - big plus given most places irresponsibly do not offer. We chose to stay here as there was lots of walking trails and property, but unfortunately the horse flies would attack at certain times of the day making it very unpleasant. Insect repellent did not seem to work either. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park - clean, quiet, peaceful - however each time we go the rates are higher. I wanted to stay a month while visiting family in the area, but was told I could stay only 21 days. I would have to leave on the 21 st day, stay away for 9 days and then return. I was quoted $745 for 21 days. I thought that was a little high.

The park now has an office/store/laundry to rival any 'resort' at 3 times the price. Next in line for financial attention should be the sites themselves. A level site is a rarity. Some have slopes which are quite extreme. Some grading & paving would go a long way to bring the campground up to the standard of the office. Also, be sure to bring a table cloth for the picnic table. A common complaint but if only campgrounds would give their picnic tables a cleaning a couple time a season with a pressure washer. Overall the park is a gem in the middle of a whole lot to see & do. If you like to be jammed next to your neighbour, have a train or highway right next to you & pay double the price for the pleasure, don't stay here. The few negative comments aside, this is a great park. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

Great campground to use as a base for visiting the historic triangle. Exceptionally clean laundry room at the office building. Some of the sites are exceptionally unlevel. When reserving, ask for details on the site you are assigned. Our original site was described as "steep" and would not have worked for us. Lots of trees...be aware of falling limbs in strong winds. Great bike riding park. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park itself is nice overall. There are a lot of sites, with generous spacing between sites. Aspalt pads with grass and trees all around. Views of the lake are plentiful. Sites were not level and some would have been difficult to get into for our 33' rig. The park could use some maintenance on the roads and tree triming. We had to close our windows and turn on the AC only because of the late night noise of helicopters taking off and landing at the nearby military base. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place to stay. Some of the sites are not level but the one I stayed in was comfortable if just a shade tight. Worth a visit if you are in the area. It was a little cold so we limited our outdoor activities. Looked like there were lots of trails to explore. The ranger station was still under construction but should be done shortly. The restrooms near our campsite were closed for repair also. First time for us staying there but would return. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Construction greets you as you enter this city campground; a new entrance/visitor center is being built. There is a marked pull-off area for RVs. Our big rig fit right into site B54 which was shaded, roomy, back-in, gravel, and fairly level. Roads through the park are paved. There is a nice playground area for children. Rate for 30amp and water. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Motorhome.

I love this park. I go out of my way to stay here. The sites are spacious and forest-setting. You can gather your own firewood. There is tons of geocaching. You can really get out in nature here but there's a ton of city and things to do and see nearby. The hookups are electric and water only but there is a well laid out dump station on site. I prefer the C loop, but depending on the season you might find only A and B loops open. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a rustic park near Busch Gardens and Water Country in Williamsburg. It's also conveniently located to Yorktown and not too far from Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg and other attractions in Williamsburg. The sites are large and several have lots of room between them and the next site. The sites are paved but the area under the awning can be either grass, leaves or dirt. We went in without a reservation and drove around and picked our site. Lots of sites to choose from not all are level. The sites on the water seemed to be the most unlevel. The bathrooms were clean and recently painted with wonderful water pressure. Bike trails to ride and bikes to rent if you don't bring one. I really loved this park and we will definitely go back. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here twice two weeks apart. On our first trip we got to pick our site and got an excellent level site close to bath houses on C loop. On our second trip it was a holiday weekend and we got a reserved, not so level, site on water. For the price, we really enjoyed this campground. Lots of activities including biking, hiking, archery, golf, boating with rentals, fishing. The local area can get busy but inside the park it is easy to forget that. We were very pleased at the condition of the bath houses considering they are a little older. Regular ranger patrols. Free firewood gathering. Lots of nice things to say about our stay. Would have preferred to have sewer on site, but it wasn't a major inconvenience. No wifi but our Verizon and US Cellular data were just fine. We will definitely return to this park again. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Motorhome.
