“A really nice place to camp.”

We enjoyed our stay. The campground was clean and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed here while visiting bush gardens and water country. We will be going back again this summer.

It all is very nice, great campground, very nice staff and grounds are great. Very close to Williamsburg, we rode our bikes to the historical section and to the outlets. I will stay here again due to the closeness to the attractions. However, only one night due to the trains. Two sometimes three per night. I'm ok during the day but during the night listening to very long freight trains makes it hard to have a good day being so tired.

We stayed over memorial day weekend, and we didn't arrive until after the front desk was closed. The AMAZINGLY friendly, helpful front desk left out a welcome package with our site number and information in it. We just sort of plugged in and went to bed. Not but an hour or two later the first train flew by, no more than 20 feet from our camper. Not knowing there was even train tracks nearby, we all jumped out of our beds in a panic. We had absolutely no idea what it was. The trains continued thru every couple of hours and woke up everyone each time. Unfortunately, the trains really ruined the whole experience. We were awakened every couple of hours each night for 3 nights.

With that being said... the staff was so friendly! He remembered me from more than a month back when i made reservations. The campground was really clean. Bathrooms were spotless, showers were warm (and available even over a busy weekend), pool was clean and well cared for. It was really a very well maintained, clean, friendly place. If they could just pick up the campground and move away from those railroad tracks this place would have got 5 stars. We were a little close to each other, not a whole lot of room between the campers, but it was true to it's pictures.

We had a good time there. We loved the fact that it was on the bus system. We were able to run around all over Williamsburg after we learned the system. We got "home" every night worn out & were ready for bed. We even used the taxi service to go to a restaurant outside the bus circle. Everything worked well, Wi-Fi, cable, water, even the lot was level. No work for us at all. Any questions were answered right away. Truly enjoyed the stay & would readily recommend this campground to anyone. The trains were even fun to see!

Spent a long weekend in Williamsburg. We arrived after hours and found our site assignment waiting for us at the front door. The site was gravel, nicely leveled and the hook ups were fine.

The park is small, but met all our needs for touring the area. So close to downtown Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and only 5 minutes from Starbucks for morning coffee.

We spent four nights here and loved it. It is a small campground but very close to Colonial Williamsburg. The owner is very friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. Nice gravel pads for RV's. The Wifi is TOP Notch!!! Best signal ever at a campground. Nice clean laundry room and store. Would stay here again without a second though.

It is next to a train track, but it did not bother us in the least. You might wake up the first night when you hear it but it was not a bother to us.

Great stay. Their outstanding, customer-oriented staff worked with us to ensure even our somewhat complicated needs were met. Shuttle @ the entrance made getting to and around Williamsburg very easy, esp with a number of people. Staff helped with recommendations regarding things to see and where to eat.
Campground is clean and neat and exceptionally well maintained as are the cottages. Proximity to train may be an issue for some but our grandson loved it and we weren't bothered by it.
