10 Reviews of Chickahominy Riverfront Park
Nice and quite

Nice camping great place for a good weekend

Great

Great site. Very Clean bathhouse. Pool and water area for the kids with a life guard! Huge grass area to walk the dogs or hit golf balls. Trails lead to hidden docks or beaches on the river. Full hook up. We hit Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens from here. Plus snuck in some kayaking, swimming and fishing:)

Nice spot on the Chickahominy

Nice campground right on the river. There's even a pool in the summer. Inside tip. There is a dock down by the boat ramp. It says no fishing. Wait until dark and ignore the sign. There's a light down there that draws the insects. The fish are everywhere. Not big fish, but fish. Bring a light fly rod and enjoy.

Perfect Tent Camping Site

Spacious campsite with amazing views. Could take kayaks straight into the water from our site. Close to Jamestown and many other activities! Our only regret is not staying longer.

Memorial Day Weekend

Nice park along the river with activities for those with families. Kayaking, Virginia Capital Trail, and pool.

Small and quaint

The kids were able to ride around the park (it is small) and park is within sight. A few places to access the water and about as close as you can get to the capital trail. Dogs are allowed but must be on leashes. There is a pool and splash pad as well as boating ramp and fishing docks. We were surprised to be the only ones up and out at 11pm, but that’s ok boys quiet and we’ll definitely be back.

Great family campsite for easy access to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, Williamsburg, VA

For 6 nights in late August 2018, my boyfriend and I stayed at a tent campsite with our 4 girls, ages 10-16. We needed a budget friendly option and shopped online to compare reviews. We had 3 day passes to Busch Gardens, Williamsburg and Water Country USA, so we needed to be within a short drive from the parks. Chickahominy Riverfront Park was the answer to our prayers! We had a beautiful spot along the river, so two of the girls spent every moment at the camp swimming and talking girl talk. The campsites were spacious and we had no immediate neighbors, so we spread out. The park rangers drove by every few hours and seemed very friendly and helpful, not invasive. They never complained about my boyfriend's car parked a campsite over, or about our game tent that was completely in the next site.

One secret goal was to experiment with different campfire food. We may campfire chili, biscuits and gravy, layered nachos, bacon egg and cheese English muffins, and omelettes. We also had the traditional s'mores and hotdogs, (covered in campfire chili!)

I was prepared for the passing thunderstorms. We picked up tarps and ropes and strung them up over our cooking area and the entrance to our tents. Most of the time, we were not at the campsite during the rain, but it did help while the trees drained afterwards. We were camping next to the "Jones's," so we got touches of tent envy, but then laughed to ourselves when it took them all morning to pack up thier Castle and small village.

The swimming pool was incredibly large and CLEAN!!! I was surprised! It felt very refreshing and even had a adult swim time and attentive life guards.

The bathrooms and showers were good enough, typical camp showers. Bring your own soap and wear flip flops and you'll be fine. There's a utility sink outside the bathhouse to scrub things off as well. We didn't see the dumpster the first couple days, it is across the street from the bathhouse. Use it whenever you leave or sleep, or all the beautiful wild animals will snack on it! We saw a fat raccoon, daring squirrels, a turtle, and vultures. There are gorgeous, HARMLESS, garden spiders that are shockingly large and bright yellow. My boyfriend also saw a harmless black snake on a trail.

This campground caters to fishermen. The camp store has very limited food. They do have fishing gear and ice.

I do have one regret. I opted to leave the bikes at home, not knowing this campground also caters to people riding the Virginia Creeper bike trail!!! it went for miles and was beautiful!!! Next time!

We camp a lot, and loved this gem. Check it out!

First to Review
Close to Historical Sites

The campground is in a great location to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestowne, and Yorktown and is a great home base for exploring those sites. They have a modern bathhouse and a pool. The tent sites are kind of close together and lack privacy but we were the only ones there Sunday night so it wasn’t that big of a deal. There are lots of trees to protect you from the harsh Virginia sun and great views of the Chickahominy river.
