The campsites are much more private and wooded than most. There are great playgrounds for the kids and several hiking trails, too. It is also just a few miles from many attractions in Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown.

We usually just take some food and find a picnic table and after taking our dog for a walk, have some lunch and enjoy watching the squirrels and deer around the area.

Lots of nice hiking trails, rental canoes and paddle boats and sooooooo much more. Reserve a sight for a family picnic or a large site for your group.
