Beautiful Location

Peaceful and wonderful place to take the family camping. Prices are the best in the area.

Wonderful campgroun

This campground is one of our favorites, Large sites that are easy to get in and out of. It each site has a grill, picnic table and a fire ring.  A couple of the sites have some drainage issues, but only after repeated heavy rains.   

The best part is the big tall mature tree's, it's overall peaceful here, and we stayed every few weeks here one summer and it felt like home.  The office staff was friendly and helpful, keeping our names on a waitlist so we could come back and back, and it almost always worked out that we got a site for the week's that we needed. 

There is a small playground in the campground area, but right next to the campground is a large play area that has a rock wall that our kids really loved playing at.  The only negative I could say is that there is also a large field for events and a paintball field, so the nice peaceful quiet area can end up being a bit loud and less peaceful on the weekends if there's an event scheduled.  But for the 5 or 6 weeks we spent there, there was only one weekend that anything occured (was a paintball event) and really was not horrible, but something to be aware of.

This is a military campground and you do need ID cards for access, Military Police do patrol the area and often set up an ID check point at the entrance.

Wonderful and peaceful trip!

What a great camp! A small family farm with 5 sites around the property. We chose site 2 for our family of three and a dog and it was the perfect size. The hosts were so friendly, and we were able to walk around and see the chicken coop, small lake, and barnyard with goats and geese. The campsites are great (about a 5 min walk apart), with a fire pit, picnic table, trash, and ours had a set up for a hammock. Even with what it looked like every campsite full, it was peaceful and pretty. Our toddler had a blast! They are a working farm so it was fun to have the option to buy eggs, herbs or wine. We picked up a t-shirt on the way out and will be back for the troller :)

Extenuating circumstances

We arrived on opening day (March 19, 2021) for the season. They had unfortunately been a victim of the rain and the main road to the campground had washed out. Alternative routes were set up to enter and exit. I understand from reading other reviews that they can routinely have problems when it rains . We were placed in a small site in front of the check in location. We were pre assigned a site and not given a choice. The mud and puddles were so bad we couldn’t locate the sewer connection. But the next day they came over and found it for us and leveled out some gravel piles that had been dumped on the site. The site was level and gravel. A picnic table and fire ring was available. The roads are a bit narrow and there are lots of trees. Plenty of nice area to walk our dog. We didn’t use or even go in the bathhouses so can’t comment on those. All in all it was okay… as long as it doesn’t rain. It appeared there were some full time cabin residents and camper residents as well. Location was great and we loved going into Colonial Williamsburg from here.

Scenic

It’s one of the more scenic parks for rainy day it makes you feel like you stepped back in time

Love

To kayak here it’s the bomb !

Amazing !

My family used to get day passes during the summer we where unable last year because of covid but it’s an amazing family friendly spot

Great park for every day

Nice walking trails for younger kids and easy access from both sides or town me an my son come here all the time

A Good Overnight Stop

This place is a perfect stop for us on the way down south from Pennsylvania. Their pull-through site are perfectly sized. The campground is well-maintained and clean. This place makes it convenient to pull in, get your rest, and go. I’m sure it would be a great place to stay at to visit King’s Dominion as well! (we just haven’t used it for that reason yet!)

Impressed

Spent Halloween here on a last minute reservation and man were we happy! This campsite is remote to the rest of VA for the most part, but hey isn’t that what camping is all about? Site #16 was perfect. It was gravel site that was level and very well maintained. Possibly our favorite campground in a VA State Park so far, it was that great of an experience. Come stocked with food and water since I don’t think there’s any large food markets that are close by (I could be wrong). We had water hookups and electric. They also have firewood sold at the campground that they sell on the honor system.
