We only stayed 1 night (2 adults and 1 5yr old) but this is a very nice campground and would stay here again. This is not a campground to spend all weekend hanging out at (because it is very small), but is perfect for those who are in Williamsburg to vacation and do the activities there (Busch Gardens, Water Country, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, etc.). It is very clean and well kept. The pool, while small is very nice. Bathrooms are very nice. And all the staff is very friendly.The train went by a couple times at night and it is loud but would not deter me from coming back. The only negative is the sites in the middle where you are backed right up to the camper behind you. Definitely made it a little tight feeling. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. We stayed in site 22.

The campground was very clean and comfortable. The restrooms were spotless! The staff is extremely friendly & helpful. The huge plus is this is the only campground located on the Williamsburg Public Bus System. Campers beware it is located next to the train tracks, so don't be surprised or disappointed when you arrive. With that being said we slept right through them. We would most definitely stay here again.

What a delightful place. We spent three nights here and loved it. The campground is centrally located to all of the attractions and even includes a shuttle for those that do not wish to drive. The staff were over the top friendly and helpful. On check in they gave us a TON of information and before one of our sightseeing excursions they helped us with all of the planning. The park was clean, the sites were laid out nicely, and all of the hook-ups were convenient. Although we normally request a pull thru site, our back in site was more than adequate for our 36' Class A. Except for the heat (over which the campground has no control) we really enjoyed staying here and would definitely return.

Do not stay here. This place has no room for larger campers. The sights are small, and have no shade. The restrooms start off each day nice and clean, but are not followed up on. Noise is not controlled, and check in's arrive all night long, making noise while you are trying to sleep. Also, they do not tell you it is along road and train frontage. They may tell you both are nearby when you book, but in reality, there sights abut against either the train tracks (which passes by four times a night and shakes your camper), or the loud road with no privacy fence. I would have said "this place sucks," a hundred times during this review, to keep it simple, but others need to beware and stay away from here. Whomever gave it a 10 rating on good sam, should see a shrink.

We appreciate your business and enjoyed taking care of you and your family. You have a very unique opinion about our park; one that we have never experienced in all of our 62 years. We spoke with you early in your stay and you voiced your displeasure. We offered a refund for the remainder of you stay, but you declined and stated you wanted to stay for the duration of your reservation and we were grateful.
We have hosted any size RV for 62 years. We offer large sites for big rigs and smaller sites for smaller rigs. We offer shade sites and open sites for satellite usage.
Our restrooms cannot be any cleaner and our checked all day long. Some guests may arrive late, but most are check-in during the day.
We do have a road that leads to the entrance of our campground. There is a train that is parallel to the campground and it runs sporadically and sometimes none.
There is a privacy fence and trees all around the campground.
The Good Sam rating that we received is a very serious rating. The inspection process is a diligent process that all Good Sam parks go through. It takes a significant amount of time. There is a format that Good Sam uses that is very specific. Each Good Sam Park is subject to the same rating guidelines.

An interesting place. This is a very small campground that is right up against the railroad tracks. The trains come through a couple of times a day. It was a tight fit for my 43' Class A Motorhome. The location is very convenient to Williamsburg. The staff is nice and friendly. Its a good place to stay if you plan to be out all day at the Williamsburg attractions otherwise I would look elsewhere.
