I really liked this campground, its staff and the amenities. I am putting this review out there to help other campers be truly prepared. First, the good. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the grounds are beautifully maintained and very clean, the campsites are nice, with power, water, tables, fire rings, and even fences between each to preserve your "space". There are several playgrounds and a lovely pool; our kids enjoyed the facility very much.
I've got to be honest, the trains are a real problem for tent campers. The tent sites are literally thirty feet from the edge of the track. The first night we stayed, eight trains came by between midnight and 7:30 am. Most were freight trains, and they took 1-2 minutes to pass. If you are in a tent, it is downright frightening. The second night, five trains went by in the night. I know exactly how many, I wrote each down on my iPod because I couldn't sleep. Earplugs were no help.
If you are in an RV or a cabin, I can see the trains maybe being not too much of an issue. A few walls and doors would probably be enough to make the noise tolerable. The location relative to Williamsburg is definitely nice. But as a tent camper, I cannot give it my recommendation. Their offer to relocate you to another site doesn't really help; who wants to undo and redo two hours of camp set-up?
