Newport News park has an array of activities for families. They have a campground, frisbee course, and at least three playgrounds. Boats and canoes are offered for rental. Amazing hiking trails and many picnic shelters for gatherings. They have one playground that is in the sun and one in the shade, which helps when it's sunny and hot. They have... More

This is a neat and nestled park…full of cute little wildlife (beavers, foxes, deers). You can rent bikes to use on the massive trails, I normally just take a nice leisurely stroll to unwind and DESTRESS. Yet another cool thing to take part in is my FAV thing to do "here" is paddle boating or you have MORE than enough... More

This is a great place to trailer your horse where you can ride from Newport News park via fire trails to Yorktown Battlefields. First stop at the ranger station off Jefferson Avenue to grab a map of the trails. Some fire trails take... More

Stayed there in May 2014. RV spaces are mostly back-in, with water and 30 amp electric hookups. There is a RV dump station on site. Choose your spot wisely, some have a lot of slope which may may make it difficult to level the trailer. There are Civil Ware era trenches and breastworks inside the RV area, but I didn't... More
