This is a pricier campground but you're paying for all of the amenities. It is a large campground and definitely a "resort", not a nature, camping feel. They have full hookups with wi fi and cable included. We didn't hook up to the cable. All the sites looked pretty level, prior visitors told us some of the sites have a lot of standing water when it rains. Many of the sites are shaded, we stayed between rhododendron and magnolia streets and had trees shading us. Great pool area! There is something for EVERY age at the pool. They have 3 water slides, in water lily pads and basketball hoops. Also some dumping buckets and rain mushroom (?). There is a padded ground water park for little kids, jungle gym, large water guns, slide, sprinklers, etc. There is a regular graded pool, starting at a few feet up to 5 feet. There is also an adult pool and 2 baby pools. Bathrooms and snack bar are located next to the pool. Lots of attentive lifeguards. They also have a lake with a water trampoline, beach area, gazebo on the water, and another snack bar and bathroom near that. Bikes and go karts for rent. Miniature golf and ice cream shop within walking distance (part of the campground). Lots of room to ride bikes. A boat launch with docks is available. They have kayaks and SUP for rent as well. Great little bay-like area to kayak and it leads to the river. Great area for boating...although we did see a snake in the water on our day of departure. Staff is all EXCELLENT. They all seem to enjoy their jobs and interacting with guests. That speaks volumes! There is also a great little dog walk area, only addition I would like to see is an off leash dog park. Dog pick up stations are also provided around the campground. Love this resort, we were entertained for 4 days, I would definitely return!! We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Visited on opening weekend. This continues to be an outstanding RV with a huge waterpark, playground, beach etc. Sites are large making pull throughs a breeze. CG is spotless. Registration is at the gate and quick. A guide picks you up upon completion of registration and escorts you to your spot. Trash is picked up in the morning. Roads have been upgraded since last. We had a pull through alongside Virginia Avenue (main drag) and would avoid it. There is a fair amount of traffic, cars, golf carts and pedestrian traffic on the avenue to make privacy difficult. No OATV nor SATV (blocked by trees). CATV is excellent. WiFi was also excellent.If you have kids - this is a fun place to go. Not much to do in Urbanna. Bethpage is advertised as a resort and they price accordingly. For us, we didn't see the value and probably won't return, but as mentioned above, kids would love it. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

This park consistently receives the highest ratings and deserve them. We stayed during the Oyster Festival. The staff was well organized and checked in a huge number of RVs in a very short time. The CG is superb. Clean, well layed out with amenities that will please all. Sites are level with normally plenty of space between rigs. During the Oyster Festival, two rigs are packed into a one rig site. First rig gets services of their choice. There is transportation provided to the festival for which they charge $2.oo per person one way for a mile trip. Parking downtown is $20.00. During the evening, open campfires are permitted, one was built less than six feet from my propane tank. Until 2300, music is loud and people have a great time. Quiet hours are strictly observed. They have great areas to exercise your pets. I think it is very overpriced during the festival and simple amenities such as festival transportation should be included in the 90/day rate (it is going up next year). Looking forward to staying at the park outside festival dates. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Great facility friendly staff, we wound up leaving the RV at the campsite for 3 weeks. It was the end of the season and it was cheaper than hauling RV back and forth each weekend. If you have kids the Halloween weekends are great and a lot of sites go all out. Ready to experience our first Crabfeast and oyster fest this season! Highly recommend this resort, lots of stuff for the kids or the whole family to do. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is easily in the top five of the 80 RV parks and campgrounds we have visited so far. We spent a week here beginning just after Labor Day so it was very quiet and we got their off season rates. This park has terrific facilities, great WiFi, super clean bathrooms, huge pool area (although only open on weekends at this time of year), a "river beach", huge camp store, a café (again, weekends only right now), etc. They have lots of seasonal units as well as cabin rentals. The area for transient campers is in a large section with mature pine trees. The large sites are grassy with nice asphalt driveways. There's even an on-site wash station with vacuum (quarters needed). AT&T 4G service shows signal strength of -113 dBm which is moderate to weak. We had a full hookup site with 50 amp electric at about $42 based upon a weekly rate. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

First time staying at Bethpage, heard lots about the camp ground prior to going and wanted to check it out ourselves. Site was VERY spacious, and level. Site was grass with some dirt, wish there was a bit more gravel on sites. Strong odor of septic the first night however mgmt stayed on top of the issue and pumped out the system multiple times throughout our stay. Pool and waterpark was very busy due to the heat, temperature of the water was also very hot, and at times not very refreshing. Our site (Sycamore 3) was on the main road of the campground and was a great view for the nightly golf cart cruising. Ice cream store and mini golf was extremely far from main campsites. Our group enjoyed a sunset cruise on the Bethpager. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

The town of Urbanna is quaint and cute. We had some good Italian food at Angelo's Colonial Pizza in town and there is a small grocery store, the Urbanna Market. Has most of anything you'd need.

Pros:
-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.

Cons:
-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. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Unbelievably expensive RV park for what you get! Grass pull through (no gravel or concrete). Muddy ruts on our site. Office personnel rude and uncaring. Might be ok for young families with small children (water park) but must be tough on their budgets as well. These people don't know what is true "resort" is. For $80.00 RVers should expect concrete pads and well landscaped lots. We will never stay again! We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

For the money paid to stay here, this campground should have had a lot better upkeep. The sites were dirty, with trash everywhere. I was picking up bottle caps and litter left before we got there all weekend. There are not enough bath houses for the number of campsites, and they are poorly maintained. The campground does not seem to be able to support the number of sites they make available-water pressure inconsistent, electric unreliable, Wi-Fi although advertised, is virtually non-existent. The staff does not enforce safety rules with the golf carts: it was dangerous and chaotic trying to make our way through the constant parade of golf carts, many with obvious underage or under the influence, or both. The cable TV was good, and there is a lot to do here--lots of playground activity and a nice waterpark and lake area with a beach. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects special rally rate. Site was shaded, level, dirt with sparse grass. Laundry & bath houses were clean. In order for water to flow from shower, you must pull a chain. This is a nuisance when trying to soap up a wash cloth or rinse hair. Quiet at night, bustling during the weekend days. We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here twice. This is a huge campground with a mix of seasonal "permanent sites" rental cabins, and regular full hook up sites. The water-park rivals many amusement parks. The staff is friendly and the campground is well maintained. The only negative is there are not a lot of bathhouses . If you needed to use them it likely is a long walk.

I was very disappointed. Our site along with many others floods after rain. We had at least 3 inches of standing water around our site. Our flip flops floated away. Management told us that they have no control over sites flooding and have no way of keeping track of which sites may flood. I believe that a campground has control over sites flooding; they need to have better drainage in place. I was annoyed that we visited the office 3 times before someone even said "sorry". A few seasonal campers stated that our section floods with every rainfall! The lake and pool were nice but not nearly large enough to handle a full campground on a holiday weekend. There were so many golf carts that there were traffic jams. I will not recommend this campground, mainly due to flooding at sites We camped at Bethpage Camp Resort in a Motorhome.
