I was reluctant to try this place because of the poor reviews. I'm happy that I gave it a try! We have had an absolute blast. The activities for the kids are lots of fun along with the pools, jumping pillow, and playground. We bought a golf cart the day before we came and I'm so glad we did! The... More

Upon arriving at Cherrystone went to registration desk. There were 4 agents sitting there and received no recognition at all. They were talking amongst themselves. After several minutes I was finally helped. We were looking for a pull thru for our motor home. She assigned us a spot but did say "if your not happy with it just call us... More

Thought we were visiting the kids for lunch today. We spent about $40.00 on fried chicken and sides. When we got to the entrance we were surprised to find that they wanted to charge $29.00 for us to enter the campground and spend a couple of hours over lunch. Total ripoff! I will do everything I can not to recommend... More

We spent two nights last week. We had an awesome site right by the water. This campground was very clean and beautiful. We will defidently go back in the summer to really enjoy it. They have an area for the dogs to be off the leash. There is a Food Lion supermarkte close by.

After reading many negative reviews I've decided to write my own. Our family has been there several times. By family, I mean brothers, BIL, SIL, nieces, nephews, grandparents. We have stayed on the beach before which is awesome especially if you have kayaks like us. My younger son, 6 yr then, loved to kayak and fish. Great neighbors who where... More

My husband and I visited the campground to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived a little late and discovered that our site was quite a distance away from the water and electricity hookup. My husband had to go up to the store and buy another electrical cord and water hose. We reported it to the office and one of the... More

Thank you for your review of Cherrystone Family Camping Resort. I am a little confused by the review. Did you report to the Welcome Center you had to buy electric cord and water hose or that you could not reach your hook ups. We would have gladly helped you position your camper so it would have been more convenient for... More

Bath houses were reasonably clean 5. If you have kids (which we don't at the time) there's plenty for them to do The Cons 1. Way... More

Thank you for your review of Cherrystone Family Camping Resort. We are sorry for the noise and commotion you experienced while you were here. October is our Halloween holiday and every weekend is very busy. Many families are here to celebrate Halloween and the park can be noisy but usually quiets down after 11pm. If you feel someone is being... More

We stayed here two weeks after they suffered a sudden tornado. The only obvious evidence left were some shortened trees. Thus place is unbelievable. Two pools for kids and adults plus a kiddie pool PLUS and adults only pool. Talk about choices. Restaurant on site was very nude, big laundromat, really well stocked store (had a lot less in it...
