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

Great park. Lots to do with swimming pool, museum, trails, and river within walking distance. Had a little power issue at our site but staff was very responsive and it was resolved quickly. Check in had to be taken care of at the visitor center instead of the entrance kiosk. - HokieDon

This is an overall very nice park. We stayed in Loop B which are the newer electrical/water paved sites. Sites are very big and we had tons of room in the pull through site we had. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because of the pea gravel they use. I am still finding little pebbles in my camper that get stuck in your shoes. Sprint cell was spotty, AT&T cell was non existent. Showers were big and clean, Laundry room had book swap and washers and dryers were each $1. There is a vehicle ferry across the James River to get to Williamsburg, Jamestown etc. It will fit RVs so if you come in that way you will be fine. - acenorm

Typical State Park. Water and electric but no sewer. Sites very unlevel. Very clean Showers and Bathrooms. No Wi-Fi or cable but plenty of local channels. Excellent hiking trails. Need someone at gatehouse to check people in as 1st time campers would be confused on how to check in. Also need to enforce rules as Golf cart was riding around with kids when the Golf cart are not allowed. Will stay here again. - Biggyrat

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 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

Could be lovely park if maintained. Filthy showers. Repairs badly needed. Practically no maintenance on bath house. No fire pits provided yet fires were apparently allowed-everyone had them. Seemed unsafe as we were in a beautiful forest and dead leaves were all around. Well spaced sites. Lake, trails, kayak rentals. - dclark

We stayed 3 nights on E loop. And it was quiet. The toilets & sinks were clean, but the showers had black mold on the curtains, floor, and walls. We wouldn't use them as they were disgusting. Most of the sites were empty around us, with a few people in the loop near us. Staff at the office are very friendly. There is a laundry room there very clean & reasonable priced. We had broken glass on our site that a staff person leaf blew off where the car was parked. Tons of cigarette butts left by previous camper. Wish smokers picked up their butts. We checked showers on other loops, and all were moldy, dirty, and stunk. It was very hot & humid out and even with flip flops on, we were not going to use the showers. The park offers firewood, rental boats & bikes, and has nice trails. They just need to power wash the showers. They have a cleaning crew that comes in daily, but they are only responsible for the toilets sinks and mirrors. The park is responsible for the showers. Its a shame how bad they are. - happy2013camper

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

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 Famcamp is the worst one we have been in this trip. WIFI yes but very poor signal. We used our jet pac through Verizon but it was little help. Verizon phone service is poor. The camp ground is in great need of upkeep. Being this is a military base it should be better cared for. Camp host is more interested in visiting with friend instead of camp visitors. We will never come back here. Good luck. - BrianOMurchu

This park is on an active military base, so you will need access to use the facilities. There are 50 concrete sites available and most appeared to be mostly level. However, there were some that looked several inches out of level. My site looked level but had about a 2" slope from side to side. Overall the Pads are long enough to park your camper and at least get another vehicle in sideway in front of the camper. Cable TV had many more channels than I would have expected, however there was almost no AT&T service. Verizon appeared to have some service throughout most of the sites. Most sites have an installed grill and fire ring. For some reason my site was one of the very few I could find without a fire ring. - JFB1

Great Campground but because of it's location best to make reservations in the summer months. In the past I had much trouble with the free Navy MWR WiFi but finally solved it with an exterior signal booster antenna. Not all sites have fire rings. TV is analog so the picture is grainy. However, you can get several sharp digital TV stations via antenna for local, national news and weather. All but a few sites are level. Remember this is a military installation so be prepared to be awakened by the National Anthem every morning at 8 am and colors at sunset. - Hollidayt

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

Stayed in fall 4 nights in one of the Large "premium" sites with no "towed" but close enough to Williamsburg with easy roads that we rode out bicycles every day into town and shops. Very clean. Claims to be oldest RV park in Virginia. The large sites are very large but smaller sites could be tight. BIG surprise was AMTRAK Washington to Florida main track less than 100' away. The first night the AMTRAK Florida train came thru about 2 am which was a real surprise. Once we knew it was OK. Bicycle to Williamsburg from campground no problem. - Jimbeau

Office closes early. Site was adequate. Sites they consider pull thru are only pull through if there is no one on the site in front/behind you. Staff were friendly and tried to be accommodating, but there was only one person on duty at any point during our stay. - Debbie1105

This campground has the potential to be excellent but not quite there. Yes it has great amenities and activities for kids, a beautiful setting, dock for fishing and a friendly staff but the infrastructure is average to weak. Gravel roads have pot holes, severe puddling and lack drainage in places. Our sewer hookup was extremely high and cable connector stripped off. It is obvious a work (construction/grading) is being done to correct these problems and once completed will move park to next level. Price for off season patio site was high ($65 average - 3 nights) given problems. Very convenient to Jamestown and Gloucester historic sites. We camped in a 27" motor home towing and did have plenty of room for maneuvering. Campground has a mix of permanent, seasonal and transient campers. Would highly recommend for families with kids but it is one of those places you have mixed feelings about if travelling as adults. - OBX Sunseeker

Nice park, not great. Not a great value for the price. Good location. Bathhouses didn't have a/c and you sweat just trying to use the bathroom. Pools were filthy by Sunday morning. Staff wasn't as friendly as you would expect, most were not rude but also didn't seem very happy to be there. Our site was very level and had a few trees to help with the heat of the day. The spots were nice sized. The Yogi dance party was loved by the little kids in our party. Be forewarned that this is on the water and in the woods. The bugs laughed at our three types of bug sprays. Seems their computer systems could use some updates, as they constantly had trouble with them every time we went to pay for something. Firewood is high at $7 for approximately 6 pieces. Overall, we enjoyed our weekend as a group, but wouldn't return to Jellystone again. - Lilwolfpup

Great place for kids. Daily and weekend planned activities. Lots of things for families to do from kayaks, fishing, camp store, fire ring and picnic table at each site, paddle boats, boat ramp and boat cleaning station, dog park, prepared food, two nice pools. Trash pickup done at your site by the staff. I think we got a 15% off military discount as well. The camp store is newly remodeled and is large. Interior roads need several improvements and more gravel as there is several potholes. Electric golf carts are allowed only. No gas powered carts. Quiet hours start at 11 pm. Good place. Will go again. - A M
