This campground is a resort KOA - those are campgrounds with more amenities - and we found this to be true. It's on a peninsula that has a National Wildlife area on the ocean side and campground on the bayside. With the campground on the bayside its so close to the oceanside that the beaches still have that ocean feel - you can hike on the shore for miles. It has a great camp store (lots of items for sale) with a cafe/ice cream place. And it has Jackspot - a restaurant right on the beach - very yummy. This campground rented golf carts out of which I am not a fan - but realize with it being so large some people need a way to get around. They are usually driven by kids or drunk adults and blaring radios - we found this to be true. We stayed a week at this campground and found that the weekends are very loud as the partiers come out and during the week its quiet great place to camp. But I will say that the campground is great at keeping the peace and keeps the quiet hrs. It's close to Cape Charles that has a nice beach too and lots of great restaurants (brewery and a distillery!). We wondered why this area wasn't built up more and really it's not allowed much with the National Wetlands being right there - which we enjoyed.
This campground was previously called Sunset Beach until this season. Now run by KOA, there have been numerous upgrades. There are now patio sites in addition to a wide range of other types. Campground sits in the Chesapeake Bay. There is a dog friendly beach, a restaurant on the water and various water sport rentals available. The bathhouses and laundry were in amazing shape. A large camp store that has all the essentials. Food Lion is about 10 minutes away. Quick tip:. Head to the aqua farm for a great deal on oysters and clams.
