1 Park near Urbanna, Virginia

This RV park claims that it is "The Best RV Park in the Nation", but after our 3-day visit, I am still trying to figure out why. About half of the park is filled with park models which are occupied by returning summer tenants. Yes, it has a waterpark and seems very family friendly. Yes, the staff were very helpful and friendly. But, in my opinion, that is where the positives end. Almost all of the RV sites, outside of a few paved "supersites" are on grass (not gravel, but grass) and I am not a fan of that. We have a large fifth wheel, and we had no business on the grass. We tried pulling into one of the grass sites and got stuck in the mud. It took myself and a crew of five Bethpage staff about an hour of hard work to get us out. After that, I said that I had to have one of the "supersites". To the credit of the Bethpage staff, they put us into a "supersite" without charging us the extra cost typically required of these sites. Even if you get a "supersite", they are very tight--you are right on top of your neighbors. There are fire rings at the "supersites" but I wouldn't start a fire in one for fear of burning down my neighbor's RV. The hookups were good and the WiFi was good (although the RV section of the park was almost vacant, and I am not sure how good the WiFi would be in the peak of summer when the park is full). There is no recycling available on site, and for the huge size of this park this is unacceptable. Bethpage does not offer a military discount, and this does not reflect positively on ownership. We stayed during the offseason, so we only paid $47 per night, but I cannot imagine paying the high rates charged during the summer for RV accommodations that are way overpriced and overhyped. I seriously doubt that we would consider returning to Bethpage. - Byron Bailey

We had stayed in this park before for the big Oyster Fest in the town of Urbanna so we knew it would be crowded for that. Well, this time it's a normal weekend in August and it's not any less crowded or chaotic. As someone said there are kids everywhere, riding bikes on the narrow main road, not looking, riding through your site when you're sitting right there, etc. Golf carts everywhere also. We have one that rides in the back of our truck and we were going to get it out to use but they charge $15 a day to have your own. Also, they wanted proof of $100,000 in liability insurance. Ours is on our homeowners policy and we didn't have proof of that and they wouldn't let us use the cart unless we could provide it. Then we had two guests come to visit us in their car and they were charged them $12 EACH just to come to our site and visit for an hour!!!!! This park is out to get ever cent from you they can, but they don't give back. They have great amenities for kids, a pool with lots of large play structures, but I wouldn't want to go there and compete with all those kids. Then there is a lake with a sandy beach but again filled with kids, rude ones. At night it's very noisy, even after quiet hours and tons of campfires and smoke. Unless you pay for a premium site ($90 night) which are very narrow, very close together but do have concrete pads you're on grass, every site. They rent golf carts and have a fleet of them for $45 a day! There is cable and wi-fi included in your site rental but the rest is a big money maker, not worth the stop. There are permanent park models here as well as rental models and permanent sites all are on top of one another. There is just a feel of being crowded and closed in throughout the whole park. They've been voted twice as National RV Park of the Year, but I don't know what those standards are, certainly not the BEST RV park! This place is truly a rip-off, they nickel and dime you for everything. - grammiejan

-Beautiful landscaping. Reminded me of a Disney Resort
-Features not found at other campgrounds such as an RV/boat wash and a 'Rivah Cruz'.
-More cable channels than I have ever seen at any other campground.
-It's big. Over 1200 sites. About half are full timers, rental cottages and seasonal sites. And they have the choice sites right at the confluence of Robinson Creek and the Rappahannock River.
-The bathhouses are in serious need of remodeling. Too few stalls, not ADA compliant, the stalls are too small and there is no air conditioning in the bath houses.
-No tenter's allowed. They say it's due to their permit. As a backpacker and car camper I find this discriminatory. - User3064
