The campground has 365 sites and the park is open 365 days a year. Chesapeake Bay 1Check in was flawless, they have an amazing staff that greats you at a their guarded gate. We quickly and easily parked our camper on the first site we found and ran to the water, because after all, water is what this campground is all about! Our back yard is pictured below, I was able to launch our kayaks right into the water!Chesapeake Bay 6The campground features two amazing swimming pools. One with a splash pad that the kids loved.Chesapeake Bay 8Another with a nice lounging area that wasn’t too deep and an area to play volleyball in.Chesapeake Bay 7When it wasn’t raining during our visit, I found myself at the pool, sitting under the cabana, working while the kids splashed around.Chesapeake Bay 11The front store had delicious ice cream, that we enjoyed multiple times during our stay.Chesapeake Bay 10Plus we were able to purchase everything we needed to learn to go crabbing! The docks offer a few things to campground residents, a private dock and then a great place to go crabbing.Chesapeake Bay 2We spent a few nights on that dock and caught upwards of 20 crabs!Chesapeake Bay 12When we weren’t at the docks we spent time at the playground…Chesapeake Bay 3Playing mini golf…Chesapeake Bay12And trying our hand at pickleball (I stink at it!).Chesapeake Bay 13Evenings we snuck away to the indoor hot tub!Chesapeake Bay 5Both our Verizon and AT&T signal were excellent at this park. Grocery store was just a few minutes away and there were a ton of restaurants with great reviews to try out while we were there.

If you want to venture out, there are so many things around this park. Busch Gardens, Water Country USA and Paramount’s King’s Dominion are within easy driving distance. There are also 3 “living history” towns packed with historical significance that my kids loved. Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and the Jamestown Settlements make up what is known as Virginia’s “Historical Triangle”. All day, every day their residents dress up historically and reenactments happen daily.
