We found this park on Allstays and thought we would give it a try even though we could not find reviews. It is well off the beaten path but only about 20 minutes from Smithfield, VA where we were headed to see family. The park is quiet and very clean with plenty of room between the sites. Most of the residents are here long term, but their sites are well kept. There is a playground for the kids and a fishing lake for those interested. They even allowed our puppy to run free near the lake provided we cleaned up after her. - Wndopdlr1

This was a last minute reservation (made same day as arrival). We took our chances and stayed in Loop B. Most sites in Loop B are first come first serve. We arrived after 6pm and needed help from Camp Host. He was very helpful. He recommended a site and it worked great with our 30 ft trailer. Park is beautiful and located very close to Williamsburg/Yorktown/Jamestown area with a short ferry ride across the river. We liked the park so much that we extended our stay by 2 more nights for a total of 5 nights. Would differently go back. - Kwahl

There are two loops A and B. Make sure you reserve loop B. Loop A has smaller, unlevel dirt spaces for smaller trailers. Loop B has super spacious sites with asphalt pads. Our site number 14 was huge. Next to each site is a patio with pea gravel, picnic table and grill. There is supposedly no Internet in the campground. However I have T-Mobile on my phone and AT&T on my iPad and for some reason I was able to get online if both these devices were next to each other. It was about one bar. You can go up the road to the 7-11 and get more bars. Make sure you purchase gas in or before Hopewell if you are coming from the north. It's about a 30 min. drive down a curvy two lane road to get to the campground. This campground is pretty far from anything. Smithfield is about 30 min away. - Ceil-54

My wife, son and I stayed Father's Day weekend. What a nice park. We stayed on S1, which is very shaded. We stayed in the newer loop with paved pads, and there is an older loop with gravel pads. Bathrooms were clean, and the showers are huge. Our son loved the HUGE swimming pool. There is a walking trail along the James River that is gorgeous at sunset. - Ken H.

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

We averaged $38 / night for W / E50. This campground is in a beautiful forest of trees just off I-64 which make for a quiet and peaceful experience. The shade was welcome with temperatures in the mid 90's. Sites are spacious with nice spacing. Will definitely stay here again!!! - Teddi2

We stayed here for two weeks. We had a lakefront site which was beautiful. The sites are well spaced so you have a ton of room. We loved sitting out in the evenings watching the wildlife. - Road Kandy

We would stay here again. The primary reason is the location, it is a pretty park with lots of easy trails and large campsites and we dealt with the shower cleaning ourselves by spraying a ton of clorox spray all over the shower area. It is true the picnic tables are a bit gross and the fire rings a joke, however it was 90 plus degrees when we were there so we did not sit outside or have fires. So here are the details. This is a pretty park with very large shaded sites. There were many restrooms. We have a 33 ft fifth wheel and had no trouble finding a spot easy to get in and fairly level. The location is fantastic to get to Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, Colonial Williamsburg and Yorktown. We are talking an easy 10-15 minutes to any of these. Jamestown is about a 35-40 minute drive. The BIG negative about this campground are the restrooms. They are 50 years old and are only cleaned once a week and the cleaning they do get once a week is not good. The toilets are not too bad but the showers , particularly the walls and the shower curtains are atrocious. They have black mold clinging to them. We dealt with this by taking a bottle of spray clorox and spraying the heck out of the shower. It helped a bit but it was still not good. We told the rangers about it but they said the city of Newport contracts out the cleaning to the lowest bidder who is very unreliable. Once we confronted the cleaning people about the shower curtains and they told us it was the job of the rangers...yeah that is going to happen. So expect pretty awful showers and if use them bring some clorox to sanitize them. We would have used our showers in our camper but there is no sewer so we would not have been able to do this for 10 days we were staying. Still with everything said about the restrooms, we would stay here again because of the location and value and it is a very pretty park. Our site was C97 and we were right next to a nice playground. - trilliumhills

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

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

Very nice campground with a wooden patio - very nice touch. Our site was spacious in the front but very close to our neighbors behind us. Some road noise but not noticeable. Restrooms are clean and well maintained - have to use a key to get in (given one a check in) which helped keeps kids from running wild in the restrooms. Good mix of overnight and seasonal sites - I did not see any really unkempt ones. Lake swimming only so there is no pool. Nice beach area and lots of water activities for kids. - dadseven

We stay at Davis Lakes about every other year when we are visiting our children/grandchildren. We have watched this campground grow into a place you would love to visit! Park, restrooms and other facilities are clean, and the grounds are beautiful. Staff is friendly and accommodating. A family run business. A little pricey, but worth it! - 2 Chiefs

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

This place is wonderful! We wish we stayed longer because there is so much to do that we didn't get to do it all. It is secluded so a lot of wildlife (deer) to see. Verizon cell service is a bit spotty. - Twintravelers

Access limited to military (active or retired) but this is a very nice spot, especially for being a tourist to historic Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown. All are within minutes (max 30) from the park. Spots are concrete, generally level, with full hookups (including cable). If you're a "must have connectivity" junkie, this is NOT for you. Had to leave the campground and drive approx 1/2 mile to get a cell signal, but we enjoyed the break from the electronic leash. Quiet (mid May so early season) and very few campers. We were only one on entire row of 10 spots. - dbng

Back in, (SPOT 10) uneven concrete pad, pedestal full hook-up, 50-amp, fire ring, cable TV, spotty WiFi, picnic table, good amount of space, campground was not full, very nice. Near the York River with easy access to Williamsburg and the Colonial Parkway. Very Quiet. This is my second time camping here and I will return. The 4 star rating for my site (10) is because the concrete pad was not level and that was the problem the first time I stayed here in 2018. Otherwise, great campground. - Wacker

Whatever shortcomings this campground has are negated by the friendly, positive attitude and professionalism of the owners and the entire staff, including the cleaning team. Also, this is the only campground we have ever visited that has a detailed plan for campers that arrive without a car to use for transportation out of the park. There is a dedicated stop on the Williamsburg bus line and the owners provide detailed information and good advice on the best way to get around and things to do/places to go, even if you do have a car. Also, they pointed out a paved bike/walking path nearby, that led to a local park (Waller Mills Park) located on a reservoir. At the park, you can rent boats, fish or just enjoy the serenity while picnicking at one of the many picnic areas. The restrooms and showers are well designed and are kept extremely clean at all times. The individual sites are small and close together but well maintained, with ample gravel to keep things clean. Some of the sites have concrete patios, upgraded tables with umbrellas, and cooking grills, while they are upgrading others. The interior road is paved and easy to navigate but the paving is a bit rough in spots. Wi-fi and cable TV is excellent, as is the Verizon signal. Water supply seemed fresh and the AC supply was without interruption. There is noise from the nearby road and train line. At night, road noise mostly goes away, but there is an occasional passing train. We did not find the train traffic objectionable and enjoyed watching the few Amtrak trains during the day. Free fresh brewed coffee and a selection of donuts are provided daily when the office opens at 9:00 AM. We enjoyed our stay and took advantage of the bus to Williamsburg and will return again in the future. - Revvie

The campground is small, but very cozy. Our site was paved with gravel and it was level. The office is open from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. Very friendly and helpful staff which made us feel welcome to the campground. Chatting with fellow campers was also most enjoyable. Anvil has easy access from the highway; easy access to each site; has a swimming pool, game room, and play yard for the kids. Additionally, Anvil is pet friendly. A GREAT feature is that it in next to an active train line, which was pure entertainment for us to watch the trains go by (both freight and passenger). The check out process was simple. - James3

I chose this park because it was the only one offering shuttle services to the surrounding attractions. This was a huge disappointment because the shuttle only runs until 7:00 pm and didn't run at all on Christmas day. Also there is a $3 per person charge to use it. We ended up driving everywhere and paying the huge parking fees at Busch Gardens. As stated in other reviews the park is situated between a busy road and train tracks. Neither of these things bothered me. The train does shake your rig and we were on the road side of the park. I would imagine that it's even worse for those people on the tracks side. I thought watching the train go by was neat but if something like this bothers you be aware that it's there. This park is very small and you are tightly packed in there. There are a lot of campers that look as though they have been there a long time. It felt more like a trailer park than it did a campground. This made me feel out of place and as if I was intruding on a private community by camping there. There are some pluses to staying at this park. The staff is very friendly, and the bathhouse is nice and very clean with lots of hot water. It's also very close to all the attractions in the area and there is a Walmart very close by. I would stay here again if there were no other choices, but I think we'll check out some of the other parks for our Christmas trip next year. If the shuttle were better I could overlook the negatives because it was really the only thing that gives this park and edge over the others in the area. - bdank
