2 Parks near Quinby, Virginia
Jul 2016 - $11.00
Very large park with paved main roads, gravel site roads and grass sites, gated entry, club house, pool, and rec room. Private boat launch and pier which is dry at low tide. Most sites are back in, long and spacious. Only a dozen sites have sewer. Water is between two sites so both need 50 feet of hose and entire sections of shaded sites have no water available. Showers and toilets are 200 yards from sites. The dump station hose is broken at top of stand pipe so you and the rig get a shower but nothing comes out of the rinse hose and there is no faucet to use your own hose, so the dump station is a toxic waste site. Weak and slow free Wi Fi only in rec room. Land area is very large and ½ mile from gate to sites another ½ miles from sites to pool and rec room. No store on site, 8 miles to small store and 20 miles to Walmart. No cable and only a few over the air TV stations. No access to water or any beach. Another TT park continuing its downhill slide. Only about 1/3 of original sites active, all others abandoned and utilities non-functioning. Active sites well maintained. Have both open and wooded (no water) sites. Last 5 miles to park on narrow paved road. Staff nice and helpful, but will not return. - Pepper Dan

We chose this campground because we wanted to see what a Thousand Trail campground was like to decide if we wanted to buy one of their passes.
The majority of the park had no electric. The office staff, who was very nice, said it was because of all the recent rain they had. However, I'm not sure if that was accurate since all of the boxes were wire-tied shut and had a "X" painted in red on the cover.
We had reserved a 50-amp site and upon our arrival were given the choice of a 50 amp site that we would have to park in the adjacent street or a 30-amp site that we could pull into. We chose the 30-amp.
The picnic table was in poor condition, and the barbecue grill was rusted and had holes in the bottom.
The campground was mostly empty, although there were a few travel trailers on our row that seemed to be seasonal and no one using them when we were there. - Our rv journey

This is an old park but kept as nice as possible with little to work with. It is quiet, staff is friendly and helpful. The Family Center is bare, but does provide a slow free WiFi signal. There is a view of the ocean, though it is not accessible. The park is quiet and peaceful. There are sand fleas that are annoying, at least in August. I had several bites that have been hard to get rid of. The restrooms have many little green frogs in the shower area but they are harmless. The park is down a long road and the inner roads are gravel. This is not a busy park, but great for rest and relaxation. We chose a site under trees but there were some out in the open. - dldw1954

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
