The resort was ok. No room for parking your vehicle next to your camper. The lots were small. The new section in the back was nice. but when you plan 7 months in advance you would think you would get to park next to your friends that booked at the same time. The store and help inside were great. For the money it cost to stay there, I would have expected more. Not a repeat rv resort for me, maybe because we went after peak season but thats how i fell. Sorry.

First: when planning our trip to come to this campground I was a little nervous after reading the reviews on here but all the google reviews were good. (I’m a big review reader and writer lol). Came to Williamsburg for a family vacation. We called to book our sites and was able to get the site beside my parents. We have a 40 ft 5th wheel and my parents have a 36 ft motor home and we stayed in sites 2 and 3. They was plenty of room. The campground is nice and close to everything. Every staff member I talked with was extremely sweet and Charlie is the sweetest man. He is always there to help and will bend over backwards to help. He has dog treats with him on the golf cart so if he sees you out he will give your pups a little treat. The campsites are paved and clean. If you stay towards the back of the campground you can have a premium site and they have a huge fireplace outside etc. but you can’t go wrong regardless. If you have kiddos they have a pool and putt putt. If you want to visit Colonial Williamsburg it’s 15 min away and Jamestown and Yorktown is 25 minutes away. If you are looking for places to eat there is a good Italian place called sals by victor 17 min away and right beside there is a really good bbq restaurant. I will definitely stay here again.

After giving this much thought I drafted this message regarding a issue that occurred while camping here at American Heritage. In August of this year I made a reservations on August 11, 2021 for November 11 - 14, 2021. I provided the names of friends that already had reservations and requested I be assigned a site as close as possible to them. I was informed I would be on the site next to one of them. On our arrival we learned I was no longer assigned a site next to my friend. I had been assigned a site 5 rows away! After some discussion I was moved to being only two rows away. Still not even close to where to the site I was originally informed of when I made the reservation. My friend had even called the Sunday prior to make sure that the reservations and sites were confirmed. He was informed they were. When my friend arrived on his site he noted the site next to him was empty. I called to office informing the staff of the same information. I was informed that the person assigned that site requested a site with no trees and could not be moved. This is the site I was originally told I reserved. During my stay I have noted there are multiple empty sites with no trees on one row. I have been visiting this campground for at least 10 years. I do like the campground. But I now am going to be reluctant to continue being a customer if this is going to become normal practice. From all appearance I had a site reserved and was moved due to another customer having preferential treatment, for whatever reason, over me. That is not good business practice. Not only have I been a customer over 10 years I have highly recommended the campground to many of my friends. I can no longer do that now after this occurrence. Thank you. Follow up. After posting this review I received a telephone call from Rachel with American Heritage. Rachel apologized for the issue. She accepted responsibility for the many miscommunications that occurred at multiple levels. She stated she did not want to make excuses but the staff members I dealt with were inexperienced with less than three months on the job. She offered compensation for a future visit to make amends. As I said before, this is a good campground. It is clean and neat. I hope my next stay is smoother than this one. If not, there are many other campgrounds to enjoy.

We were put on site 89 which we found short for our 28ft travel trailer and truck. There were several nicer sites that stayed empty for most of our visit. I wish they'd give folks the option of picking out a site if it's available. Some folks may like sites for certain reasons like closer to the bathhouse etc. We checked out the bathhouse and laundry room, we found it ok, kind of typical but appeared clean. We used the pool one day and it could be a little dangerous because there are loose tiles. The wifi on our site was practically non existent. My one big complaint was we got there on Monday and on Tuesday a truck backed into the site behind us with a large generator running most of day. Obviously the staff knew of the work being done, it would've been courteous of them to have let us know about it so we could've made plans to be out all day. That would've been the RIGHT thing to do.

In short...this place needs some TLC. The pictures online don't show that this campground is showing age and not being well kept. It has good potential. It's in a great location, sites are an ok distance apart for it being a private campground, there's a large pool (run down with ant hills galore, broken tiles), laundry facilities (rusty old equipment that actually burned our clothes). We had three week long stays for the summer but cancelled our third because it's just not worth it. Our second stay we had the worst site...site number 138. On the map it looks large but it barely fit our 34' camper and it smelled so bad because there was a huge swampy puddle of standing water in the site. Called staff and was told contact manager/owner?. We left them a voicemail and never heard back the entire week. Terrible way to treat a guest. We were very disappointed and not sure how it's getting good reviews.

We have camped at this RV park for over 20 years. But recently, the ownership has changed hands and many things and policies have changed. Most of them are not for the better. Things like; trash pickup is no longer done by the staff, inexperienced staff fixing issues and much more. So what tipped me over the edge, take a seat. On Thursday, July 22, my friend parked on site 47 and when he plugged his surge protector in, it read reverse polarity. He went up to the office and they sent a staff member out. One staff member turned into two and then into four but no one could find or fix the problem. So the first staff member said let’s make sure the surge protector is good. He went to another site and it performed normally. He said the surge protector was working so they said it was above his pay grade and he would call an electrician out on Monday. So my friend moved to site 51 with no problems the rest of the weekend. We ere out on Saturday and returned to find a Newman Dutch Star parked in the site. I went over to talk with the owner to find out that the office had told him nothing about the power problem with site. I explained the issue to him and headed to the office. He came back and told me that they knew of no problem with the power only that someone’s surge protector was bad. Now it was their tech who verified the surge protector. So they moved the Dutch Star too. Now here is a campground that puts profits over it’s clientele and willing to impact a $400K motor coach. The next day, my wife and friends were sitting at a prime site when the owner approached them and asked if it was their site. They responded “No, our friends just left”. She told them they needed to leave the site because she had it rented. My friend then told her that his surge protector was not the issue with the site. My wife said she did not like being lied to. The owner then said she was going to get her husband. When she returned she was not with her husband and that we had till 2 to be off our sites and she would issue a refund. We went to the office to get our refund since when we checked in, we were told that they did not keep our credit card on file. When we got to the office, the girls at the front desk said that the owner told us not to come to the office. Another lie. We were told to email management for a refund. My friend was called and told they processed her refund. So how could they if they did not get credit card information. Another lie. This campground can not be trusted and should not enjoy our business.

Close and crowded tight spacing with a small patch of dry grass and a picnic table. Quite a few semi permanent campers - one in particular who revved up his motorcycle at 6 am. Friendly management. Great camp store with propane for sale along with some other camping items. The worst thing was no cell service (T mobile) and the advertised WiFi was horrible. Prices similar to other campgrounds in this area. Not sure if I would stay here again for more than a few nights.

Great staff, normal sites are a bit small in width but adequate in length. There is plenty to do around the campground and the local area. Facilities are clean and plenty of hot water in the showers. Prices are reasonable for the area. Patio sites have a fireplace, fire pit and BBQ. I asked in the office about a review that said they had sold the CG and was told it is in process but will not change hands for a while and they are taking reservation for 2021 and should be open in 2022 also.

Hook ups worked until our last morning. Our water froze. We asked at the office for water and nothing was offered. Would have appreciated that as we had a long ride ahead. It did leave a slightly sour taste to buy a gallon of water for $3 to get us through given that we couldn't fill our tank before we left. Perhaps if the owner were there when we asked and ended up buying a gallon of water, they would have given it to us, at least? I don't know. They could have told us to try a few empty sites to see if some water was not frozen, the temp was just at freezing and perhaps one or two sites could have had the sun on the hook up area? They could have had some at the office for these circumstances? Yes, it is January and we knew that there were risks involved camping this time of year. But, this IS a year-round RV park and once in awhile people will have their water hook up freeze. We don't leave our hose hooked up at night. We generally fill the tank, store the hose, and in the morning before we leave, we re-fill the tank and off we go. The park was fine and generally the staff was nice, regardless of the water issue the last day. We appreciated that they were able to accommodate us a day earlier as we had a bad experience elsewhere. The stay was truly nice, in spite of the water issue the last day. Their camp store was fairly well equipped. I'd suggest that a policy be in place that if water is frozen a hose hook up (heated spigots exist in other campgrounds) is available at the office. We really needed water for our journey. The guy who filled our propane tank told us to go back and leave the spigot open until it unfroze, but we had to hit the road with a schedule and drove 500 miles that day. It just would have been a nice gesture to have an alternative. I'm sure we are not the first people to have this one issue. Aside from that, it was a nice place and we liked the site. We enjoyed walking around the park and it was pleasant. In spite of the water, if we ever return to that area, we would go back there.
