Travelers' Choice
A 280-acre waterfront Thousand Trails RV campground set along the banks of beautiful Piankatank River, offering both shady and open campsites. Chesapeake Bay RV Camping has full hook-up sites plus tent sites and rental cabins. Facilities at this coastal Virginia RV campground are clean and well maintained. Our friendly, welcoming staff is on call 24 hours. Upstream from the Chesapeake Bay, Piankatank River is perfect for boating, water skiing, jet skiing, swimming, crabbing, and fishing. Both saltwater and freshwater fishing are within a quarter mile boat ride from Chesapeake Bay RV Camping. Nearby are 3 "living history" towns of unparalleled historical significance. Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and the Jamestown Settlement make up what is known as Virginia's "Historical Triangle", and the beautiful Colonial Parkway that connects them is worth the drive if you do nothing else.

This was our first visit and we'd definitely come back! We do not have kids but there are a lot of activities for kids and adults! There is daily volleyball set forth by the seasonals and we really enjoyed playing and connecting with them. Tie Dye is a lot of fun and cool you can buy a souvenir shirt for the tie dye. We had a prime spot right on the beach and really loved being on the water! The ice cream is delicious and they are always adding new flavors. Overall we really enjoyed our stay! Only considered, we wish game room was open later and the store open daily. Also there are jellyfish and water moccasins in the river swimming is a personal choice I suppose (there are swimming sections on camp). However, the pools and spa are open until 10:45 pm which is magical during the summer!

Flower making. Staff was very helpful and nice. My daughter enjoys all the activities they provide tie-dye, other crafts, water softball, pool games, bumper balls and so much more. We enjoy going to the Game Center as well.

This was a great experience with my family. We took the kids to make flowers and they had a blast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even came up with creative items to put on the flower like leaves and butterfly. We will definitely be back again!

This was the nicest thousand trails I have ever stayed at. When we pulled up they asked if we’ve ever been here, when I said no, they were nice enough to escort me to find a spot. Super friendly staff beautiful campground with lots to do family friendly. I love all the activities they had to offer!

So much fun n playing Pickleball with MANY people of all skill levels. - and the pool volleyball was even more fun! Run by a very welcoming gentleman - he invited all of those tall enough to join in, and each of us had a great time! My whole family enjoyed it! Thank you for a great experience, I can’t wait to come back!

The resort is kept very clean and all the rangers are very personable and helpful. I was disappointed that the camp store was closed Monday and Tuesday and closed earlier than previously. The restrooms, pool, and grounds are kept very clean. We always enjoy staying at this RV park.

Overall this is a great family campground within reach of most metro areas. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves to camp. Hedy is the highlight of this place, without her it doesn't work. RV spots are nice an speciose and well kept. The campground is quiet and well suited for a family with small children. Both pools and playground are in good shape. The pond is nice for fishing and the river is as well.

Our cabin was very nice but needed some important upgrades. The A/C & bath vanity were poorly installed. Caulk was used to correct major installation errors throughout the kitchen & bath. The futon mattress seems 20+ years old and desperately needs replaced. The rooms need to be renovated by a professional. Example: replace carpet, remove leaking roof watermarks on walls, redo ugly caulk, remove/reinstall A/C & bath vanity. The area is beautiful. The cabin setting is nice. The employees are friendly.
