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.) We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown. Expensive tickets required at most of these venues.

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. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Close to Colonial Williamsbug, Jamestown, Yorktown, and 40 minutes from Virginia Beach.

Easy to find but the sign says Thousand Trails not Outdoor World.
Warm friendly hosts. Quite a few "resort" park models and seasonal campers. They will try to hook you up with a camground time share/membership. Family friendly park with plenty of amenities. I would stay there again. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Close to Busch Gardens and Williamsburg attractions makes your commute easy.
Since this is an older park, the sites are on the small size and difficult to maneuver. Unfortuantely, all the best sites are taken by annual campers. What is left are small and incredibly un-level. Very difficult to level a rig. The park would be more inviting if the annuals were in one section and the over-nighters in the remainder. Great location, easy access to the Williamsburg attractions. The workers were very friendly. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.
This is Thousand Trails so price was free. The park was very hilly but we were able to get level site. Most sites are not level. The indoor swimming pool and hot tub were great. There is no free wifi nor free cable. Cable was $3.00 a day. There was no dog run but fields were available to walk dog. Easy access to I64. Big rig friendly. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
There is attractions nearby but this is home. We were here to visit family. Walmart is ten minutes a way.

Rate is TT membership. Convenient to I-64. Campground hasn't changed in years, except getting more run down. Sites need gravel, they are pretty much just dirt, no grass between sites. Roads are narrow, bumpy and challenging to navigate with tow car. Lots of trees, so forget satellite. Cable is available for $3.25/day. Facilities just look dated and worn. Staff friendly and helpful, ample touristy brochures available for your stay in Williamsburg. Both indoor and outdoor pools, indoor spa, laundry and game room. Lots of seasonals both in campsites and cabins. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.

We just spent 2 weeks at this park, which included Labor Day weekend. I was pleasantly surprised that the staff and campers were all very nice, happy and helpful. I watched the staff work very hard to keep things nice and clean, to ask people to follow the rules, and work hard to be helpful to everyone. The park is a short drive to a public library, 2 grocery stores, other shopping, parks and tourist attractions. I am very glad we stayed at this campground and would absolutely return. I rated this park a 9 because, as do most RV parks, there are things that need repair. The putt putt golf equipment and course are in very bad shape and the whole place could just use a face lift. Rate reflects Thousand Trails membership. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here as part of Thousand Trails membership we got with the RV. Very hilly location and most of the sites not level. We stayed over labor day and arrived at noon on Friday and ended up with a very narrow space with three tree stumps that were always in the way. Our space was near the office and on top of the hill next to two permanent trailers. The other sites we were told were available were not adequate for our 38 foot RV due to the slope of the hill. Pool was nice but cable and WiFi are extra. The store was opened on request and no set hours. Close to Williamsburg but there are others in the area. Would not stay here again...and not renewing our Thousand Trails. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.
This is a fractional ownership park. It is associated with Thousand Trails. I made the reservation through ReserveAmerica and thought it was a state park, my mistake. There are lots of people, kids, dogs etc. They have lots of organized activities too. So if this is your thing, this might be your park. For what we got (full hookups) I felt the nightly rate was really high. We camped in the quiet section and it was, although a long way from the pool or other facilities, even the trash container. There are lots of park models here too. The reason we came here is because we wanted to be close to Williamsburg so we could spend the day there, as it turned out Williamsburg is about 15 miles away. I would not camp here again. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Travel Trailer.

The rate reflects membership in Thousand Trails. Overall, the park is okay. It is older and you can tell it is past it's prime. The location is good with easy access to the Interstate. We camped here in a 42 ft fifth wheel. We came in late, but were able to find a site that could accommodate our length. However, the majority of sites are not level. The bathroom condition varies from building to building. The staff was friendly and helpful to us. The outdoor pool was closed for the season, but the indoor pool was open. My kids swam for a short while and liked it, but I was not thrilled with it. They did have a 9 hole putt putt course and to my surprise it was in good condition and fun. We would stay here again if returning for a short trip. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a good campground for the money - our daily rate was based on our RPI membership. The park was busy on the weekend prior to Halloween, with many cars sitting close to the internal roads - which were paved and very narrow. Sites were dirt, spacing fairly tight and many were not level, as previously noted. We were happy when the friendly office staff urged us to select a site we liked when we arrived, and we found one (B43) that didn't even require our jacks. A combination must be entered to open the entry gate, which we liked. The 50-amp electrical was strong, but water pressure was a bit low at 30 psi. Each site also had sewer, a BBQ stand and a fire pit. There was some distant noise from highway 64, but not bothersome at our location in the middle of the park. We were not able to check out the restrooms, showers or laundry room due to our short stay and busy schedule. A grocery store was located within 2.5 miles, and a Walmart Supercenter at 5 miles. Access to Old Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown was very good from the campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.

Rate is with Thousand Trails. Overall -- This is the nicest Outdoor World Park we have seen yet. Staff was very helpful and many of the seasonal campers do a great deal to keep the park nice -- they were putting up a haunted house while we were there. Park location: -- Close to the "Historic Triangle". -- Some noise from the highway but not excessive due to all the trees. Sites: -- many were not level but only required the leveling jacks). -- utilities required long cords/hoses on some sites. -- Hard to get satellite reception as it is very woodsy. Amenities: -- Mostly paved roads - narrow but passable for our large Class A. -- Restrooms very clean and good water pressure for showers. -- Nice indoor pool and hot tub. -- Nice mini-Golf area as well as shuffleboard and horseshoes. -- Huge rec area and adult lounge. We will definitely stay again. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.

Pros first. this is a very nice camp ground. It has a huge rec center with lots of activity's as well as miniature golf, tennis, shuffle board, horse shoes etc. they have planned activities like bingo and djs and much more. Its very woodsy and shaded and the pool area is one of the best I have seen, 2 pools one inside and one outside a kiddie pool and a hot tub. They have a arcade and a store that they will open for you any time during office hours. Its gated with one way in and one way out. Its very shady and pretty with lots of trees and ground moss and its far enough away from the road to keep the noise down. They have a little fishing pond as well. It was very easy to find. The staff is very friendly. each camp site has a BBQ stand and a fire ring. Ours fire ring was missing and they promptly brought us one. Cons- The park is very hilly so be prepared to get creative when parking. The most level spots are at the top of the by the clubhouse.When you arrive you have to go find your own spot and then go back and tell them where you parked. When you pull in you go through the gate but the office is smack dab in the middle of the park so you have to drive quite a distance to get to it and follow the hard to see arrows and signs to get there as well as go past all the campers so if your unit is big I strongly recommend you either pull over in the road after the gate and disconnect to drive to the office or just be prepared for a tight drive through the park. There is no grass here its all dirt because of all the trees. when it rains it gets very dirty. If your at the bottom of the hill look out. We stayed in A43 which kept us away from the busy hustle and bustle of the clubhouse area and was still fairly level. But we did get a lot of traffic. Also if your just a zone member be prepared to be hit up to upgrade your membership to elite by the camp host. But it was no big deal. He was very nice about it and did not push. We stayed 5 weeks and if we ever get back this way we will definitely stay here again. We camped at Williamsburg, Outdoor World in a Motorhome.
I think the other reviews pretty accurately describe the campground - it's an older campground that's fairly tight for big rigs (we're just under 59' long bumper to bumper when hitched up). We're here over spring break (lots of MD and VA schools are off- heck, it's why we're here!). The arriving process was a little weird in that you dialed the registration desk and said that you were checking in. She said she would open the gate but didn't give us any directions (e.g., drive forward until you see a small sign for the registration desk). The woman at the front desk was a little scattered, saying that it was especially busy because of spring break. I asked for recommendations for us since we were a big rig and she said we wouldn't like the sites, that they were wooded and pull-throughs but were pretty close to the entrance and highway. She said since it's first come first served, that we could camp there for a night and explore the campground, or drop the camper off and drive around. We're still getting our RV legs about us and hitching/unhitching is still a fair "to do" for us, but I'm really glad that we decided to drop the camper and drive around in just the truck. Back in the back (away from the road noise) we definitely would have been in trouble making some of the maneuvers hitched up! We ended up in their "A" set of campsites on the 4th road in. We *do* hear the highway all of the time but inside the camper it's not enough to keep us awake or anything. The site is just only a little longer than our fifth wheel is, but fairly wide. We've been parking the truck along side of the camper. The hookups for us are pretty centrally located on the site and convenient for water, sewer, and electric. The water pressure is pretty low - seems to run about 30 PSI based on my gauge. I'm using AT&T for phone and Internet (I work from the camper) and it's been sufficient.
