Usually when we go out with our trailer, the campground is basically the "destination." In this case, the campground was a place to park our "mobile motel room" so we could explore the area and do a day trip to the beach.
This was our first time staying where full hookups were standard, and we had a pull-through site on a level concrete pad. A picnic table was provided, and a metal "fire pit" will be delivered to your site if requested.
There was decent space between the sites, though of course not like what you find at a state park! But speaking of which, American Heritage RV Park is just 4 miles from York River State Park. After getting set up, we went there and we highly recommend it for nature lovers.
The campground is also close to Colonial Williamsburg, and a little over an hour away (depending on traffic) from Virginia Beach and First Landing State Park.
The bathrooms were clean, showers had hot water, and the campground was very quiet. A train comes through the area a couple of times a day (and night), but we didn't find that to be a problem.
It's close to I-64 (easy on/off) and easy to find, though the actual road INTO the campground is pretty narrow.
We chose to stay here instead of one of the campgrounds in VA Beach just because traffic in and around VA Beach is crazy. Seriously. I felt much better about just driving there with my car instead of towing the trailer through that mess.
We didn't check out the pool, but it seemed nice and we saw people swimming. Some folks we met said they'd been at the campground a week.
Be sure to ask about AARP, Good Sam, AAA, or other memberships you have because they'll give a 10% discount when you check in. We had good cell service on AT&T and Sprint networks.
While it was the most expensive place we've stayed so far, compared to an oceanfront motel room at VA Beach during peak season, it was a very good deal. We'll probably stay here again in the future.
More about this trip (and all we did in 2 days!!) is on my blog:
Great pool and convenient to travel to several activities incl Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, Va Beach and more.
Nice concrete pad sites with full hookup and shaded by tall pine trees (some not). Quiet and little traffic. Staff and store is nice.
And! Pretty good wifi internet. Usually its slow, but here it works!
Bath house is nice as well.
It was a nice clean campground but is definitely an RV resort. We stayed in a cabin that had two bunks and a full size bed, with a bathroom, microwave and small dorm size fridge. The pool was relaxing but the park set up reminded me of a typical American trailer park. Not my cup of tea but it was nice.
We stayed at this campground on our recent visit to the Historical Triangle. It was a great location to launch from for our 7 full days of sightseeing.
The staff was nice and overall everything was kept up and in good condition. My only issue with this park was that they didn't clean the bathrooms and bathhouse very often. They went 4 days without cleaning the only one they have which had a lot of traffic. During that time we had 3 days of no hand towels to dry hands off with and the same sinks had toothpaste residue. There was a smashed bug on the floor that never moved for those 4 days.
This park was very convenient to Williamsburg, Richmond, and Virginia Beach. The staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms were clean, air conditioned, and well supplied. We found it ideal as a base camp to explore the tidewater area of Virginia. Sites were concrete, level, and most had trees for shade. New section at rear of park is not well shaded but new construction. Good connections for water cable and sewer. Wi-Fi was available and we had no problems connecting. Easy access to all the tidewater areas and close to restaurants, food stores, and shopping. Staff were exceptional and this has become a family favorite. We love the area and staff have shared with us the local options and places of the beaten path. Reservations are recommended and available on line. One of the top RV parks in the Tidewater area.
