So this place is old and tired, there's no getting around that, but the location and current prices make it a gem in the rough, which may not see another season, and be consumed by all the urban encroachment. It still has that family owned campground appeal and has been around longer than most every business around it, but this may be the end, like so many other similar places that used to exist across the country, now replaced with corporate businesses. It's a huge campground, though much of it has been closed. The wooded section at the back even has been mostly abandoned and is now overgrown. There's a large pond that used to be open to the campers, but is now gated off. If your in the office, ask to see one of the old brochures, it's all in there. They once had a putt-putt course, laundry, and other buildings open. The pavilion is still used, but in disrepair like everything else. Camping here was a great experience. The long time employees are very nice, and the campground cared for as much as possible with such little staff. It's very quiet and with so many stores, so close, it was very convenient. They accept Passport America, which lowers the price considerably if staying a week or more. WiFi is included and fast enough when there aren't many campers. If you've used pit toilets in remote locations, dug cat holes while wilderness camping, done your business inside a portable toilet at a music concert, or used a gas station bathroom, you won't find the bathrooms here all that bad. I was here an extended time, so I went to the Dollar Tree down the road, and for $10 got a broom and dustpan, bleach, toilet cleaner and brush, and some disinfectant. I even bought some liquid hand soap that I left by the sink. Problem solved. I had a clean place to shower and go to the bathroom. For the price to stay here, I thought they could use a little help. For what I think makes it a great location, is the cycling opportunities available. The campground itself, has enough property to build a great mountain bike trail complex. That would bring active, healthy type campers there, and add to the other mountain bike opportunities around Williamsburg, while preserving some green space . Freedom Park and York River State Park are minutes driving from here, and both have great mountain bike trails. I reviewed both on Trip Advisor. This is also in the historic triangle, and it's a nice bike ride from here to Jamestown, which I done. Road 614 has a bike lane from the highway 60 intersection, nearly all the way there. It really isn't much more than a narrow road shoulder, but the traffic on 614 is relatively law abiding and it's a low stress ride. Once in Jamestown, you can ride around the tour road. That makes for something like 30 mile round trip, back to camp. There's the Colonial Parkway, but I wouldn't ride it past the 199 interchange, because the local drivers treat it as an interstate and are very reckless. From the campground, to Jamestown, then the Virginia Capital Trail starts there, which goes to Richmond. It'd be a nice trip to ride from the campground, all the way to Richmond, stay the night in a motel, then ride back. I didn't get around to it, but really wanted to. The Poe museum is near the VCT. I did ride to the VCT, and it's a very nice cycling path. The cycling opportunities is what this campground could capitalize on now. There're also the Brass Cannon and Aleworks breweries just a few miles down the road, which have cycling lanes to them. The worst part is going from the campground, under the 199 overpass. Once past that, the bike lanes are there. Look at the date on the sign. It's incredible how long this campground has been in operation. It's be nice to see it continue on. I really enjoyed my stay there.

Some friends and I stayed at the Williamsburg Campark for one night while passing through Williamsburg. I was appalled by the sheer number of dead bugs in the women’s restroom; it couldn’t have been cleaned for months to have that many dead bug carcasses. See the photos below. The sites were hard to find and the other buildings were run down. Interestingly, the pool was pristine.

when you come here it's like stepping back in time. the campground is huge and is in the Williamsburg pottery family and is actually attached to the old pottery. Despite being so large few people camp there which is such an injustice. They have a large pool but you'll need to bring your own lounge chair. The camp store has ice but nothing else. Marvin and Dora work there and they are so helpful! you just pull up and pick your spot. if the box us covered by a bag then the site is dead. I believe there's 5 or 6 50 amps but there's an ambundanceof 30 amp spots. The bath houses at old but clean and functional. There are so many places to walk and venture through including a pond in the back of the campground. We love it there. There are many places to camp in Williamsburg and we chose campark over and over. There's rumors that they're going to sell and we hope that isn't true!

We camped here for a night to visit the sights in Williamsburg. It's conveniently located and has plenty of sites! We brought a tent and stayed on a site that had water and electric. We were a bit disappointed that our site did not have a fire pit and the bathrooms were not in good condition... There were lots of spiders in the guys restroom as well. Their prices are definitely reasonable and cheaper than other area campgrounds.

This camping area is very conveniently located within range of Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, and all sorts of fun activities and historic sites, yet feels away from the hubbub of the town. We pitched our tent in a nice spot that felt nice and private, though close to the bathroom facility. This was my first experience camping with electricity hookups and a water spigot right in our campsite. It was very convenient indeed! We spent quite a while in the pool, which was wonderful. It seemed a bit chilly when we first entered, due to the difference in temperature of the air and water, but soon, it was the perfect temperature to paddle and splash around in. We had a lovely time here, and felt the site was reasonably-priced for the area. We hope to repeat the experience, time allowing.
