6 Parks near Williamsburg, Virginia
Apr 2016 - $45.00
We spent a week here and found it to be a good spot for visiting the area. The utilities worked well. The staff was friendly. The only downfall is that the roads and sites are dirt. Other than this, it's a nice place. We will stay again when in the area. - Tammy7

Signage needed to explain/deter/keep people SAFE:
*Behind 100s lots - large trees down, excavating stagnant over a year+
*Near maintenance area, main rd, 2 large holes, created by pavers over 3' deep and 4ft across. 1 had orange cone, 8ft later, a 2nd hole did not have cone - I nearly fell into 2nd hole walking dog at night even with flashlight
*Rec bldg is construction garage - doors unlocked, saws, debris
*Dog "pen" not "park", has no grass and is just mud w/o any benches or play equipment (also a 1/4 mi away from campsites)
*Several lots had tailgate tents with flap sides. One was a fireplace mantel business with skill saws visible as sides.
*Walking trail unmaintained, quickly turned around with green utility hoses sticking 5-6ft out of ground in air cascading over trail
*Junkyard of trucks, motorcycles, uninhabitable campers behind office
*Camper storage had grass overgrowing campers -I wonder if owners know their campers are probably winter homes for snakes and who knows what else with underbrush not being maintained
I hope this CG was just purchased and owners are working to remedy but putting money into signage to let patrons know "why" things are a mess surrounding sites would help immensely. It appears to be years of uncompleted projects, hopefully from prior owners.
Lastly, the house on the corner, at entrance to park appears to enjoy making it difficult to maneuver into CG. We towed, but each trip in/out with car, there were 8-14 cars parked in their front "yard" and on side road -- even their trash bins were left obstructing road in some passive-aggressive notion - owners need to make peace or buy out that house
Bathrooms were immaculate. CG sites were immaculate. Guy on golf cart was super friendly. If they could just wall off all of the eyesore areas on perimeter, they would be a very nice park. Oh, and please move the fenced area about 1000 ft closer to the CG lots where the grass is currently being used as a parking lot! - ImaStyxFan

This was our third stay at this park and it will not be our last. We just love this park for the friendly staff and closeness to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. Because the campground is on a bus line, we do not need to bring a car, which saves us money. The bus is very safe and reliable.
It is next to the railroad tracks but we have camped across the U.S. and this is the case with many campgrounds. After the second train, we barely notice them. The road in front is quite busy during the day but quiets down at night and we have not noticed much truck traffic, mostly cars.
Our sites have always been fairly level with little adjustment on our part. We will definitely stay here again and again. - CraftCrazy

Staff was very helpful and friendly. The park is fairly small with very little grass areas for dogs. Nice pool with a few playgrounds for the kids. Very close to Williamsburg. Right next to the train tracks but not bad if you don't mind trains. - jimnina

This is a very small park. Lots of tents. The sites are very small also. This park is next to a main road with lots of traffic and a train also. The sites are large gravel rocks and are not quite level enough for a class A on some sites. They have a dirt(used to be grass) patio that is very small. It is not that much closer to Williamsburg than the Heritage Campground so that's where I would stay next time. - pcmike

What a sweet park! We had a site right where the river bends and it provided a fantastic view. The campground has a system of lights on the utility pole which is much lower than we usually see. It was much appreciated as it provides lighting for security but isn't blaring in your eyes at night. We only stayed two days and I wish we could have stayed longer to rent a canoe or kayak. There is a golf driving range right as you enter the park as well. - Da Keeffes

A lovely park on the banks of the Chickahominy River. Unfortunately due to the amount of tall vegetation it is hard to see the water from the water front sites. We did not pay the extra $12 PER night for sewer hook-up so we did not have a water view. I think the rates are rather high since cable and WiFi is not included. Even though we had a huge tree on our site we were able to get satellite service and over the air reception. Lots of fisherman putting in at the ramp since there is a big tournament starting on Thursday but they were not intrusive. Will agree with a previous poster that the roads need attention; lots of potholes. Also the dump area needs attention. Very muddy place. Doesn't seem very sanitary. It needs to be surrounded by cement. We would probably stay here again. - User2209

We are in a 39' 5th wheel and have a back-in site with a water view, site 315. Our satellite does not work in the site, but we get plenty over the air stations. Our Verizon Mifi gets a good signal here. When you enter the one way road into the full hook-up sites, the road is easy to navigate; however, the other end has some tight turns with trees. When we leave, we will go out the same way we came in even though it is one way to avoid the tight turns. The park is not busy and only has 5 other sites booked for the entire weekend. The park is well maintained and has a friendly staff. The park is also very quiet. We would come here again. - Liz I.

Very clean and well kept. Always friendly and helpful staff. The site was ready and clean. The pool was clean. The nature walks are very good. Great areas to walk your dogs and they have a Kamp K9. - Camper BV

We spent four nights here while touring the historic triangle. We were on the "quiet" side which was definitely quiet, which we enjoyed. The quiet side was adequate but our site was in need of refurbishing; new gravel, regrading, etc. It was level enough but was very muddy the entire stay. Some straw was put down behind our site but our side yard wasn't really usable and was missing the fire pit. The wi-fi was the only other issue, it was very slow. The rest of the hook-ups were adequate. We took a walk over to the other side of the park which seemed more updated and newer. The "nature trail" connecting the two sides was washed out in places though. We ended up walking back on the road. The laundry room was clean and the pool on the quiet side seemed to be as well. Overall it was an average park but we enjoyed our stay in Williamsburg. Check out the York River State park which is about 2 miles away. We took a nice hike there one day with our dog. - DeannaS
Jul 2015 - $100.00
Spent two weeks while on an extended trip through the southeast US. The campground is a mix of gravel and concrete sites. All the concrete sites appeared level (ours was) and had a paver patio, picnic table and fire ring. The gravel sites were mixed as far as level and amenities. Plenty of tent and cabin sites which would be great for a family get togethers. Our nightly rate seemed high, but, included the July 4th weekend, and the facilities, children activities and location were worth the rate. Daily activities included games, ice cream and movies.
The campground offers discounted admission tickets to several local venues and is minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg, the Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Battlefield. Washington, DC is three hours away via Amtrak.
We camped here in a Motorhome would camp here again. - TxDiver

Park is 80 years old and has seen better days. No updating has been done recently. WiFi is OK, depending on the site. All interior roads are grass / gravel. - ta96silver

This campground has seen better days. It is very run down. Only has 8 sites with 50 amp and one of those didn't work. Sites are very close together. No trees at all for the sites with 50 amp. Swimming pool is away from anything else. Laundry is not open. - Glendaj

If at all possible, just avoid this place. The VA State WIT camping club had to change the August meeting location due to a conflict and this was all they could find in the area at the last minute, that could accommodate 30 coaches. The bathrooms and showers were filthy, the office staff had no idea what they were doing, the sewers were stopped up, the playground consisted of one old rusty slide, the covered meeting areas are rotting and falling down. $28 rate was negotiated by the club president and it wasn't worth that. - Joyce and Gene Whitley

We went to this park in April and everything was shut down. Nothing for kids to do. I don't know why it's called "Outdoor world". There are a lot of unlevel and hilly sites. Sites are first come first serve. Luckily we arrived at check-in time and got a fairly level site that was close to the office and restrooms. I will not return to this campground. - JohnB GVA

Typical Thousand Trails....old park, aging infrastructure, unlevel & tight sites, rules not enforced, most sites taken by annuals or seasonal campers, etc. Office staff were nice. The workers do the best they can with the budget they have to work within. Up and back interior roads narrow and confusing. Several tight turns. Many trees need to be removed. Watch out for big remnants of old stumps, even in your car. Nice newly redone miniature golf. Indoor pool and hot tub nice. Outdoor pool and hot tub were closed for the season. Shuffleboard and basketball. Also tennis court painted also for pickleball, but court surface is rough asphalt and you have to install the net yourself. (According to the staff, too much trouble with net and other sporting equipment being damaged, stolen, or not returned.) - dndrv

This is an old facility with tight, unlevel sites. There are a lot of "work camp" trailers on site and our view was looking at a lot of big propane tanks. The amenities are well kept but the campsites are mostly gravel with little grass. The only reason we stayed here is because it was cheap through Thousand Trails. It is convenient to many attractions, but the camping areas are pretty much a dump. I would not stay here again. - Retiring in 2016
