Our first visit to this large & very attractive campground, easy off/on VA Route 64. We stayed here to break up the trip to & from Northern Virginia to Rodanthe, Outer Banks, NC. Reservations (probably not necessary in Oct/Nov) were easy to make - efficient check-in. Well equipped camp store. We had Site 22, which was large enough for our SUV hooked to our trailer (we're about 50 feet). The site was level, paved, with a picnic table, and very clean. Full hookups were in good working order and well located. We did not use the bathhouse, but judging from the rest of the campground, I would imagine it is clean. Great place for dog walking & there is a large off-leash dog enclosure. Wi-Fi was excellent as was the cable connection, with a large variety of available channels. Strong Verizon signal. There is a train that passes nearby, blowing its horn which might bother some, but not us - we love trains. Entry is down a very narrow road & it could be easy to miss the left turn into the campground as it is partially obscured by bushes/trees. Not good to miss it, as it's a dead end street & no way to turn around, so just watch carefully for the American Heritage sign to your left. Our GPS was a bit confused! We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had a nice wide pull thru with plenty of space for our toad. All pads are concrete with additional large living area. Roads are wide, perfect for large rigs. The park was quite, well maintained and the staff was very friendly. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

A quiet campground surrounded by thick row of trees so highway and train noise is minimal. Front Half is concrete pads and asphalt access roads with heavy shade. Back half is concrete pads with gravel access roads and no shade. Sites have adequate spacing with grass between the sites, picnic tables, and fire rings on request. Highway noise was barely noticeable while the trains (6-12 a day) were moving so fast it was just a couple a minutes of noise for each train.

The street leading to the campground is problematic, but doable for big rigs - narrow (maybe a lane and a half), trees both low overhanging and intruding from sides. Big rigs pretty much need to take the middle of road to avoid scraping. The turn into and out of the campground is tight but doable for big rigs. On exit big rigs need to go out from left lane and take all of the street. The trees on the left side of the exit are not trimmed for big rigs (thus losing half a lane). Trees on the right side of the road make the exit turn effectively a blind turn. Two rigs can't pass on the street.

The main access road is wide enough for two rigs, but once back among the sites the access roads are pretty much a single lane but still two way traffic.

Power ok, water ok, sewer ok, wifi pretty decent (but this was off season) except for Friday and Saturday evenings when campground filled up with weekenders. Verizon LTE 3-4 bars with adequate speed, TMobile LTE 1-2 bars with adequate speed. Cable was analog and somewhat snowy. Front half of the campground is problematic for satellite, back half is mostly ok for satellite except site 93 which has a low hanging tree overhead that precludes use of roof mounted satellite on front of coach. Southernmost sites in back area might have trouble clearing treeline for satellite. Onsite single steam recycle. Adequate road bike riding if short and repetitive in campground. No direct access to good road bike riding from campground.

We would stay here again. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park. All roads are paved, all sites are concrete with patio and table, some might need a little leveling. Deluxe sites have chairs and larger patio with fire ring etc. Restrooms and showers were always clean and very nice. Did not use it, but pool looked nice. It is convenient to all attractions in historic triangle and close to shopping and restaurants on route 60. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Responded within minutes when several sites in our row had an issue with sewer drainage. I don't think any of the sites were long enough to leave your dingy attached.

Watch carefully for entrance to park, sign is kind of hidden. If you go past, road deadends at railroad track, hard to turn around. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in site 39. Pull through, concrete pad and patio, full hookups. The site was well maintained and the park was quite nice. If you wanted a fire you had to request a fire ring as opposed to it being on the site permanently. I believe there were built in rings on the deluxe sites. Where we were was very shaded, the other sites in the back were not but slightly bigger.

Laundry area needs some updates. We used it but wasn't up to par with their bathhouse which was very nice.

We will use them if we are in the area again. Just not in the summer...it was HOTTT. We would request site 39 again. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is a bit of a contradiction. The front is very nice, with lots of shade trees. There is a playground and a good pool. The deluxe sites have beautiful patios with furniture and fire pits. Our site was very nice even though we were across from the bathroom which is never my first choice, but I was surprised when I walked further back into the campground. It looks like they are still in the process of expanding and the sites near the back are not nearly as nice. There are hardly any trees and a bunch of construction equipment is parked just beyond the last row of campsites. I would have been very unhappy if that was my view. Also, there is an opening in the fence at the beginning of row 7 that shows a yard filled with junk. Not sure if that land belongs to the campground, but if you are in campsite #57, that's the view from your picnic table! Ask for something in rows 1-8 (except for #57) and you should be happy. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our stay was shortened at American Heritage due to an emergency at home, however, we hope to go back as soon as we can arrange the time. This park is the BEST! There are two types of campsites, regular which includes all hook ups a concrete pad and patio and deluxe. The deluxe sites also have concrete pads and patios but include as well beautiful stone boundary walls with built in fire pits, fixed grills and patio tables with umbrellas and that seat six! The pool on site was beautiful, clean and had lots of tables and chairs on the deck. The park paid a great deal of attention to details to make it a lovely place to enjoy your stay. They also offer 3 nature trails. We were only able to do one of them. They also have a good sized dog run, which unfortunately we didn't get to take advantage of either. We cant wait to go back!

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. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's been a while since I've stayed at this RV Park and they have made one Hugh improvement and that is they have paved nearly all of the interior roads. Would have given a better rating but the nearby railroad noise( whistle, etc.) is pretty loud at times. Granted the park has no control over this but it does detract from the enjoyment of your stay.

Quiet, clean, well run and very helpful personnel. A great place to use as a base for seeing the historic triangle. We have a 50 amp, pull through site, with full hookups. They have cable but we used Dish Network. We have stayed here before and recommend it highly. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Take time to see Shirley and Birkeley plantations. We also enjoyed the Jamestown Settlement, original Jamestown, Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg. We are here for a week and we should have scheduled two.

We opted for a premium site which had a patio and table and chairs. While our site was level, the decline getting into the site was very steep, so much so that I had to get out twice to make sure the coach's exhaust wasn't going to scrap - we had about 2 inches to spare. Sites and roadway were nicely paved. Front office staff helpful and courteous. Having stayed at two other campgrounds in the area, we definitely prefer this one.

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! We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We have a small RV, but the big guys....I'd park on Maxton Lane near Lutheran Church and walk to see how many cars/trashcans the house at entrance to park has obstructing road as I can not imagine even a tow trailer being able to navigate into CG.

Very close to Williamsburg, Great location if the house on the corner of Maxton would learn to be neighborly.

This is a top notch facility that makes a perfect home base for exploring Colonial Williamsburg and the surrounding area. Roads are asphalt and camping pads are concrete. We had a premium site (#29) that was nicely landscaped and included a fire pit, patio furniture, and a charcoal pit. Grounds are kept spotless and well manicured. The bathrooms are worthy of a custom home. Wireless was very reliable but just a tick slow. Staff were friendly and helpful. We spent a whole week here and enjoyed the campground. We will definitely return! We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
