It is old and park on gravel road which we heard every vehicle drive by our bedroom slide. Water and electric was on wrong side. Looks like they cater to long term. We had no problems there. It was a good place to stay for a few days. They had swing sets for kids but were filthy. We would go back there but would look elsewhere first. Nothing bad to say about the place but nothing interesting there either except it is close to expensive Williamsburg.
I did a drive through this campground today. This is not a place that I would stay unless I had no other options. Fairly easy getting in main gate if you come in with camper stay to the right. There are a lot of stops and turns getting back to the CG, which is in the back corner of base close to the water. Sites are plenty large enough for anything you are driving or pulling but they are dirt sites. Roads in CG are gravel covered potholes which needs some work. Really nice commissary and exchange on base as well as gas station. Transportation museum is close to main gate as well. This would not be my first choice of places to stay in the area.
R.L. left this review using the Directory software: - Had no problems making reservations or getting checked in. We were able to add a night at the last moment. It's a decent campground, we stayed in #8, a pull through with plenty of room for our 35' fifth wheel. We just followed the gps through the base, and although it wasn't looking anything like a campground would be there, it was. Got through with no difficulty. We came mostly for the commissary, which is excellent.
We arrived just after the Noreastern storm had passed. The only real problem we had was with the reservation system. I called a few days early and was told no SSN, No reservation! After a call to the office of the Director of MWR that problem went away. That office called the FAMCAMP office and told them to make my reservation without the SSN. I hope they can delete this requirement so I don't have to make that call again. The help at the FAMCAMP was very friendly and offered directions to downtown. No map of the Ft Eustis facilities was available at the FAMCAMP office? A local newspaper machine at the office would be a nice addition. No problem with parking our 5th wheel or with the hookups. The park road network was full of muddy potholes that a simple load of stone would fix. There is a terrific little BBQ restaurant next door to the FAMCAMP office with free WIFI 24/7 from their patio. Very nice facility but under used. The only road into or out of the campgrounds is closed during the week from 0630 to 0730 for PT.
Don't know how anyone could have problems size-wise. We have a 39' 5W and there are no restrictions driving or parking. Got here mid-nor'easter, so it was very wet and windy. Biggest problem was with reservations--we did get the last space over the weekend. Had a fill-in office guy and he took 45 min to do our reservation. Think he put me on hold whenever someone walked into the office. Biggest heartburn was they wouldn't make a reservation unless I gave them my SS#--said that is how they tracked your reservation. Haven't had any FamCamp require my SS# in several years. In this day and age of ID theft, think it is very wrong to put one's name, address and SS# in one place. When I checked in and complained was told that all the info was safe in their computer!!! Will see the MWR director on Monday if I can and have words.
J.C. left this review using the Directory software: Campground needs a lot of TLC. Road is narrow and big rigs will have difficulty. On the plus side, the rates are inexpensive and they have 50 amp service, water and sewer. The Restaurant right by the park is nice and relatively inexpensive.
P.C. left this review using the Directory software: Changes have been made to the policy, it is set up that you can not stay more than 30 days. The campground is located close to all the vacation sites. Needs more bathroom facilities and a laundry facilities even though the laundry facilities are within 1.5 miles from the campground. Even prior to the change there were always two or three sites available.
