Upon check-in, the staff was most pleasant and gave us a good insight to the rules and regs of the campground. We drove to our assigned camp site and found that everything was not as "nice" as the web site depicts. We found that there was a lot of mud, and mulch debris all over the site. Didn't pay much attention to it at the time, but every time we went into our camper, we dragged this mulch stuff in and it got all over our sheets. We had to constantly sweep out our camper. We were told that all we had to do to re-enter the park was to drive up to the gate, enter our code and drive in when the gate goes up. We left for a bit on Saturday the 28th. When we returned, there was a "gate guard" sitting in a golf cart at the gate. As we slowly drove by, she asked "Can I help you?". I replied "NO THANK YOU" and attempted to get up to the key code unit. She yelled at me to "GET BACK HERE". When I backed up to see what she wanted, she commenced to give me the "3rd Degree" about who we were, were we camping there, etc. She wasn't even nice about it. When I showed her our pass, she opened the gate - I DID NOT NEED HER HELP TO OPEN THE GATE!!! The Restrooms appeared to be neat and clean. However, in the men's side, of six (6) stalls, only two (2) had toilet paper and one of these unit was plugged up with a big nasty looking mess. Went to take a shower and found the privacy door kind of falling off the hinges, to which I had to lift it up to close it. The women's side didn't fare much better. The shower stalls do not have space to leave you dry clothes, or dress without getting wet. Kind of defeats the purpose of taking a shower and putting on dry clothes. Lastly, the rain came. Our site flooded to the point we had no other option but to pack up and leave. Both my wife and I were absolutely soaked by the time we got the camper loaded and on our way.

We ended up leaving within an hour of our arrival. We set up in a very unleval space that seemed to be crawling with every type of bug including yellow flys and hornets. We could have possibly overlooked that, except the 30 amp breaker could not handle running our 1 air conditioner. We called to see if they could move us to another spot or fix the breaker and they told us they didn't have any other spot to move us to. Since it was a 90 degree day, I asked for our money back since they couldn't accommodate us. They refused to refund my money because the last person in that site had no problem so the problem was mine. We left, found another rv campground and had no problems there, which proves their breaker was defective like I thought. Overall the park seemed to be run down and it looked like the sites had seen better days. The positive is that there was not a lot of road noise. - AZAlice

Once inside the campground you must navigate narrow roads and tight turns to make it all the way to the back for the "pull-through" site area by "Tent Town". Paved sites are very nice, but hope it doesn't rain since the surrounding grass and mud in our case was 2"-3" lower than parking pad and filled with water quickly. The drive back takes you through a storage area that reminds one of a salvage yard. In the rules you are told they are inspected by the "health inspector" every 3 weeks so campsites should not appear to be permanent residents. This is basically ignored, plus children can be seen walking back from being dropped off by school buses. The approach from the north on US17 Business requires a tight left turn across a drawbridge then a quick left on the narrow road the campground is located on. The good, close to Norfolk and surrounding area. - Teacher's Pet

At this camp the sites were close but the way they were arranged it worked. Camp host was attentive and caring. Office person was helpful and kind. Camp is well maintained and shaded in most of the sites. The only problem we had was when we were leaving the base the right turn out of gate 5 had over hanging tree and broke the front of my awning. These trees should be trimmed to allow motorhomes to use the turn lane with out receiving damage. Other than that is a very pleasant experience. - BrianOMurchu

We stayed here during our pack and load out, since it was the closest park to our home. It was clean and well-cared for. Some of the sites, including ours, were too close for privacy. In addition, water is shared between two sites, necessitating the one on the right (us) having to run 50' of water hose under the unit to a pedestal almost under the awning. Finally, some of the full time and seasonal residents have let their units deteriorate or have surrounded them with tarps, tents, etc. This is always a detractor for us. We would stay here again if we had to be in the area, but likely not for vacation. - bigdipper

We have stayed here several times, and it was always a nice stay. This time it was better! The grounds were better maintained, and the overall appearance of the campground was much improved! The new manager was becoming very involved in operating the campground rather than just being there! We will definitely be back! - ournextstop

The location of this RV is perfect! That is the reason that I would rate this RV park so high. Sadly, the grounds are just merely satisfactory/poor. The grass was very high, many sites are in wet areas that sometimes flood (they have sump pumps in several locations around the park), the Water/Electric area did not have any site markings to know where to park. However, I would absolutely stay here again because the area around The Colonies and the location is wonderful. - RVThatFamily

First saw this park when looking for a place to watch our son's carrier depart on deployment. Tried to stay here another time but no space was available. Area is like being in a large park in an urban environment. Very quiet even though you can see the traffic backed up going into the tunnel. Close to the beach but not very sandy. Not a lot of amenities at the park but plenty of stuff to do nearby. No WiFi or cable. Local tv channels are strong. Satellite works on some sites but trees affect others. Solid Verizon coverage with good speed. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nicely stocked store. Bugs a problem after dark, bring repellent. - glenthompson

This park is too expensive for what it offers but it is all about location, it is the best option in a very dense population area . No wifi, no pools, no frills but a clean comforable park with a view of the bay from both sides of the coach, a well stocked store and nice shade from beautiful Live Oak trees. The best choice when visiting the Norfolk area - Bruce and Janette

This campground is located conveniently off the highway and if I’m in the area, I will stay here again.
In general this campground is a mixture of both short term and long term campers. The long term campers keep their sites clean and orderly. The sites are fairly level gravel pads that are fairly level.
In general, the campground’s facilities are really good. The owners of this campground obviously take pride in their facilities and keeping appearances up.
The bath house was clean and good working order. We purchased propane from the campground and found all the staff to be friendly and helpful.
This facility is a do over again for us. - Pigcrib

We have stayed at Davis lakes many times and really enjoyed it. The people are friendly. It's a quiet enough campground. It's not the Ritz-Carlton, it's a campground and we enjoy our stays. So if you are looking for a happy relaxed stay pick Davis Lakes. - Gramma-gramma

Weekly discount for a level, back-in, FHU, 50amp, gravel site with a wood deck patio. We had weak Verizon cell/internet reception that was improved with a booster. We had good DishTV satellite reception, but other sites might not because of trees. Our family stayed in two of the rental cottages and they enjoyed the lake swim area and fishing from the covered patio decks at the cottages. We would stay here again. - Dave51

This is the best kept secret in Virginia... The camping area is all the way in the back of the park. There was one other RV besides us, so we had our choice of spots. I think they have 12 spots available. All spots are packed gravel in among the trees, back-in, shaded, with a LOT of room.. Check in at the maintenance office on the end of the street. The park office has weird hours and is closed on weekends. Just pull in and find an open spot, catch them on Monday. There are no reservations, so its first come first serve. The park is mainly soccer fields, located in an upscale residential area, even though everything is completely open to the public, we had no concerns about security. The sites didn't have sewer hookups, but there is a dump station across from the Maintenance office.
The Camping area is all the way in the back of the park, past the soccer fields. Its on the same street as the park maintenance office. - Waiter

Campground is located in suburban area of Hampton at the rear of a 100 acre city park. Park office is located nearby and staff are very helpful and friendly. Sites are fairly grass/gravel with large evergreens providing shade. Electric is 30amp. Water & electric are padlocked until you register. Arrive before 4:30 otherwise you will have to camp rough for the night/weekend unless you can catch the caretaker cleaning the showers, or driving through the grounds. HRT (bus) stops 400 yards from campground cnr Clemwood Pwy & Little Back River Rd & covers Hampton, Virginia Beach & Newport pretty well. $3.50 buys all day pass. $5.50 allows use of ferries & express buses. Park locked after dark, however road through Campground left open (turn left at 7-11 on Back River Rd) - which creates traffic - especially in the early morning. Nearby Air Force base (other side of bay) also can be noisy - but only during daylight hours. Great place to stay if you have business/visits to do in Hampton/Virginia Beach area & don't have other transport. - Sandy Potter

I stayed in December, so park empty, but I suspect would be pretty full in warmer weather. Keep in mind even "beachfront" sites do not allow you to see or hear the ocean - many dunes, brush, and trees in the way. Would definitely hear some traffic noise if at a site adjacent to Shore Drive. Have to cross a boardwalk to access the beach. Once you are at the beach is very nice. About 1 mile of beach in front of state park, another 2-3 miles along private homes and hotels. Plenty of sand for playing or resting. Bath houses clean but old, must be ok with a few bugs/spiders. No heat or A/C. Interior roads kind of narrow and windy - might be a challenge with a large rig. Fairly basic park overall with few amenities - main draw is the beach. Good amount of trees and bushes between sites provide shade and privacy. - DawgDen

Water & electric hookups were good, but there is no sewer. Narrow interior roads are paved, reservable sites are not. Our site was somewhat soft sand and not the best for parking our rig. There were lots of sand spurs, and even with a rug, we constantly tracked sand & spurs inside. There are boardwalks over the dunes in a few spots that take you to a beautiful beach. The people in the office were super friendly & helpful. We received several OTA TV stations. You cannot see the water from your sites. I would not recommend this campground for big rigs and do recommend staying away from the boggy area in the middle of the campground. Restrooms & showers were very dated, but clean with paint peeling. This was pretty expensive for a state park & we would try somewhere else next time. - R&S

Very busy park. Bathhouses could use some updates. Easy walk to large sandy beaches. Roads are tight but passable. Is next to military base, so you may get some aircraft noise. Shuttle bus to Virginia Beach is available. Lots of trails through cypress swamps. My site was only large enough for the RV. No room for a tent or canopy. - HokieDon

Conveniently located for us, just 2.5 miles from friends house. Didn't use the restrooms and showers but they appeared as if they could use some refurbishment. WiFi supposedly available but my computer could never find it. Thick tree cover prevented satellite TV usage but enough over the air stations available. Would stay here again. - kanem

This is an OK campground for a short stay. Get good directions prior to entering campground. If you enter directly to the check in station you will not be able to proceed to your site via camp roads. There is very narrow low water bridge with a 5 ton weight limit. You need to enter by a different street and then walk .5 mile to check in. My site was very crowded to each side and I had to pull my power and water under the RV to an outlet next to another site (shared outlets). My site was dirt and I'm thankful that it did not rain. It would have quickly turned into a mud hole site, but considering price I would use again for an overnight stay. - trav

Sites were mostly being used long term. We were only there for one night. Our site was dirt and had an inch or two of water on it when it rained. Never did see campground host. Bathrooms and showers were clean. - kenp

On 1 October, 2017, Ocean Pines and SeaMist RV Parks, associated with Naval Air Station Oceana, will do away with weekly and monthly discount rates. The daily rate will remain at $25.00, but a week long stay will increase to $175 from $154, and a month long visit will now cost you $750, up $240 from the monthly rate of $510. While the campground manager has continued to maintain the appearance of the park in great condition, keeping the grass cut, sidewalks trimmed and gutters cleaned out, as well as doing all of the check-ins, check-outs and managing a long wait list, the park does have some problems. The handicapped access ramp to the office, laundry, restrooms and showers has been roped off for over a year due to collapse of the deck area in front of the handicapped entrance to the building. The night entrance to the building, which is protected with a keypad, has been roped off for the same reason for the past three months. The wifi worked great last summer when a new system was installed, but this year, the system keeps dropping the signal, requiring that you log back on every few minutes. It is a shame that they see fit to raise the rates, but won't put money into making needed repairs to the entrance gate and the RV park office building. - glsurratt

Mainly permanent residents at this "campground". Extremely difficult to get a reservation and now I know it's because there is hardly any turn over. Not a campground atmosphere. Your sewer would either need to be hooked up before you get completely on your site because it's in the middle of your site...because this used to be a mobile home park. There are recreation facilities (outdoor water park-in season, movie theater, bowling lanes) nearby but you'll have to go on base for these. - beachcamper5

Adequately spaced, level spaces; most with some shade. Well kept - regularly mowed and maintained. Staff very friendly and helpful. Secure gate. Only down side is the number of people who ignore the posted 5 mph speed limit (posted a total of 6 times around the park). Approximately 50% of people (including Oceana Police) exceed the speed limit by dangerous amounts. Use caution with children, pets or walking/running with headsets! - 2 Harleys and a Beast

We made reservations at this park. We did arrive to camp there, but some of our plans had changed since reserving, and we realized we were further from VA Beach than we had hoped. We might have stayed at Northwest anyway, but then we discovered that there were only about 2 spigots of water for each 4 campsites. Since we were already not feeling positive about the location (our fault completely, NOT the park's fault) we decided to call another campground in VA Beach and were able to camp there instead. This camp seemed very nice and the people working there were helpful. We have no gripe with the camp EXCEPT that, upon making reservations, it should be made clear that each site does not have it's own water spigot. In our case we would have had to run a hose through someone else's site to fill up each day or so. - TN Vogels

We stayed here for five nights on our way north. Early in the season, only four other campers out of 70 sites, and of course we're all next to each other. Very spacious sites, though. Heavily wooded area, hiking and equestrian trails right from the campground. Workers were busy trimming trees and putting down fresh mulch, getting ready for a busy season. Verizon cell and mifi and T-Mobile worked fine for us. Interior roads are gravel and plenty wide for navigating through, no branches to worry about. The first site we were booked in was half flooded from recent heavy rains, so we picked one across the street that was dry. The sites are packed gravel and most looked pretty level. You do hear road noise during the day but it dies down at night. If you're not familiar with this area, there's a naval air station here and you do hear planes flying over, sometimes late into the evening. If that bothers you, don't stay in this area. It's the sound of freedom, people. Workers at the campground were friendly with a wave, and as we stopped at the dump station on the way out one wished us safe travels on our journey! - Roaming Together

We had a great weekend here in mid November. Sites are spacious and wooded-comparable to state parks. Some sites would be a bit hard to back in for a large RV due to trees. We had site 4 which was a pull thru. Beautiful hiking trails and a pretty lake where you can rent boats.
The only downside is that water is shared. The spigots are next to the road and spread throughout the campground. We pulled up to one and filled our fresh water tank before pulling into our site. With a very long hose and a site near a spigot some people did hook up to them. I showered in bath house and while old it was reasonably clean. Used dump station on way out which was fine. We will definitely be back. - Cusack1020
