We were pleasantly surprised how nice this campground is. It's nice and wooded and very pretty! We had to get an electric site even though we are tent campers but there weren't too many RV's around. But I have to say this campground is literally crawling with ticks. They were everywhere, all over the tent, chairs, and all our other equipment. I've never seen so many in my life. So be prepared!
Great hiking here! And a fabulous playground for the kids!
This campground is pretty nice, especially if you’re in an RV. No full hook ups, but there are many level spots and it makes it easy to go to the dump station that’s on site. There’s no swimming and the rental bikes are terrible, but the park itself is nice to walk and there are really lovely trails as well. The bathroom was horrendous and you cant use the potty unless you’re willing to straddle the toilet to shit the door. Nice camp store and the boat rentals are nice. It was sad to see no one picked up sites (many had trash left everywhere) and it was very frustrating to see people climbing all over the protected sites. Calling to let the rangers know did nothing. Overall nice, but extended stays may not be much fun for tweens/ teens.
Not very many secluded sights, in the middle of a very busy area of the city of Newport News.
Have stayed here several times, it's nice & woody, some lake front sites, most have water & electric. It boasts a 5 mile hike & bike trail. If you're a history buff, the campground itself was built on top of a Civil War Battlefield site (https://www.mycivilwar.com/battles/620416d.html), large playground area central to most of the five loops. Bath houses were a little dated, a full retrofit is over due.
this location has plenty of all types of sites and has a good amount of things to do within the park itself from playgrounds to nature walks to boating and fishing. The ranger and welcome stations have plenty of local information if you run out of things to do in the park.
