1 April 2017 to October 2017

On 1 October, 2017, Ocean Pines and SeaMist RV Parks, associated with Naval Air Station Oceana, will do away with weekly and monthly discount rates. The daily rate will remain at $25.00, but a week long stay will increase to $175 from $154, and a month long visit will now cost you $750, up $240 from the monthly rate of $510. While Rick, the campground manager has continued to maintain the appearance of the park in great condition, keeping the grass cut, sidewalks trimmed and gutters cleaned out, as well as doing all of the check-ins, check-outs and managing a long wait list, the park does have some problems. The handicapped access ramp to the office, laundry, restrooms and showers has been roped off for over a year due to collapse of the deck area in front of the handicapped entrance to the building. The night entrance to the building, which is protected with a keypad, has been roped off for the same reason for the past three months. The wifi worked great last summer when a new system was installed, but this year, the system keeps dropping the signal, requiring that you log back on every few minutes. It is a shame that they see fit to raise the rates, but won't put money into making needed repairs to the entrance gate and the RV park office building.

This park used to be a mobile home park converted to RV park, this is a great park, lots of room, roads are paved with concrete pads for the picnic tables, gravel with concrete wheel pads for RV. Water and power are fine the sewer hook ups are underneath the rear of your RV, I hooked my up first than backed over it so didn't have to crawl underneath. Some spots hold water if it rains hard. Small clean bath house, washer and dryers work great, big grass field with fence on 3 sides for the dogs to run. There is a gate with a code to get in. Last time I was there the WIFI worked great but had to call a number and to get code and pay fee. Great little children park in the middle. The only issue is the Air force jets land and take off over the camp ground from early morning to 10pm at night, its gets kind of annoying when your watching TV or trying to talk to someone. TV antenna picks up lots of channels, gets fussy when jets come over.

Ocean Pines is a great park; it's friendly, very clean, spaces are well maintained. It's close to NAS Oceana, so it comes with a daily air show. The laundry and bath house facility is up to date and clean. It is pet friendly and family friendly. My only complaint is that some people don't obey the posted speed limit signs. There are a total of 6 signs indicating the speed limit of 5 mph. Many campers drive way too fast, and even the Oceana Police, while doing their rounds, exceed the speed limit! With the number of people walking dogs, and the number of children riding bicycles and playing in the park, it surprises me (for a military only park) that so many people simply cannot follow the rules! It's not a reason not to stay here, but it is something to be aware of, especially if you walk/run with a headset!

Great park convenient to all shopping, eating, and the beaches. The sewer connection was a little odd being under the RV, but can be worked around. Has great power as it was in the mid to high 90's and had to run 3 ACs. Satellite can be had but you have to work at it. Nice to be on Base but not have to go through the ID process at the gates. Would definitely stay here again.

After "living" in our daughters driveway for many months and not knowing that it was a city violation, we moved to Ocean Pines. We have been here a month and have another month to go before going to Sea Mist on Dam Neck for 2 months and then back here for one more month. We love it here. The rebels that we are, we are parked with the front of our RV facing the golf course, while every one else is backed in and facing the street. We love sitting and just looking at the woods and lake. As far as jet noise? Comes with the territory and we do not mind "the sound of freedom" one bit. And believe it or not, it is quieter here than at our daughters home!! The only problem we have had is a neighbors dog attacking our little dog one day. No permanent damage done. And the owner was very apologetic and had even informed the office before we filed a complaint. We will definitely be back. Love it here.

We were very disappointed there are so many long term campers here. We were here for 6 days and on each side of us our neighbors were not present, only their rigs. The check in staff was very helpful. We did not use the restroom or laundry facilities so cannot comment on them. We were also disappointed there was no cable or wifi. We were able to pick a site where out roof mounted satellite worked and we received 2 local channels on the antennae. Our Verizon signal was very strong. Our site was level as we had two concrete rows to place our wheels. Also there was a nice patio and the sites very relatively spacious. Also liked the close proximity of the commissary and base exchange. If we come to this area again we would try to secure reservations at Sea Mist where we could be closer to the ocean.

If everything in this park were as nice and accommodating as Rick, I could stay there for a month. And the truth is, most everything is that nice. But then I tend to nit-pic. A few too many homesteaders and a couple of them are in really old rigs that need to be replaced. I understand that the rent from these keep some of the Military RV parks open, but really?? Commissary and BX were both close to the RV park. There was only Bio-Diesel available on base, but it was very expensive. Regular fuel off base was much more reasonable. There is some nice shade to be had in the park. the seafood around town is fabulous!!!!! No cable, but the antenna worked fine. Had to leave early for an emergency back in FL. I'll be back for sure.

Rick Sheffield worked hard to help two retired couples meet up with their RVs. He cheerfully adjusted my requests and schedules to adapt to the hot weather and friend's travel schedule. He called ahead with the gate code and helped us find two sites relatively close together. The price was right, the sound of the F-18s were great, the place was pristine, $25 a night great value. No cable, but not a big deal with satellite TV. Thanks, Rick. Dave Teal, Lt. Gen., USAF, Ret.

We love the Virginia Beach area and like this campground and the one over at Dam Neck. Ocean Pines is a converted mobile home park which explains why some sewer connections are directly under the back of the motorhome rear axle. That was not convenient but overall it is a good place to stay. We would do it again.

We have stayed here before and enjoy the large lot's and supportive office staff. Virginia Beach waterfront is very close, as well as the Exchange and Commissary. I would suggest that everyone use some sort of water filter as the water here, although tasty, has a tendency to be muddy colored when you first open water valve. No big issue though, just plan on using water filter. I have found it easier to make my initial sewer connections before backing the 5th wheel onto the pad. That will save you from laying on your stomach and fighting with the hose and connection. The office/showers/laundry facility was immaculate; .75 to wash/dry. The jet's were using an alternate approach pattern while we were here, however I do love the sound of freedom! We will stay here again!

This was a great location for meeting family and beaching. Campsite was just fine, spacious enough. Lots of jet noise--I used earplugs and it was still very uncomfortable.

Large clean campsite-great camp host-great location. My wife and I stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed the stay. Felt very safe. Had trouble finding the sewer hook up due to cover not marked. Camp host had this issue fixed within 20min after arrival. We will come again and hope others take advantage of this great campground.

We've been here most all summer, wife had and still having health issues. Jackie is no longer here. Rumors were going around that she got fired, but I also heard and know she was getting ready to leave, they were building a home in NC I think. Butch from Dam Neck annex comes over to sort of over look the operation, but he doesn't know the computer. They are looking for a new camp host.

We planned on staying a full month at Ocean Pines RV Campground but were forced to leave because of Hurricane Irene. We had a pretty good site (Site #4) but on Wednesday and Friday nights the noise from the Honky Tonk Bar across the street and outside of the campground (Smokies Place) was very loud ... lots of bikers. The military beach was outstanding! My wife and I were enjoying a peaceful time on the beach when our beach chairs began to sway to and fro ... it was the earthquake! No WiFi and no cable but good satellite reception. Easy to get to the Navy exchange and commissary. The Navy exchange was the largest exchange we have ever seen! Lots of F-18 Hornets doing touch-and-go practices and the planes got quite loud, but, hey, it's the sound of freedom, so we didn't mind. Hated to leave. We were going to move over to Sea Mist (brand new RV park right on the ocean) and stay a month or more, but that all changed with the hurricane. We will definitely come back to the Virginia Beach area. Where else can you experience an earthquake and be run off by a hurricane!

This would be a great place except for the jet noise! I know that the base campgrounds are a perk & obviously the navy has to do whatever is necessary to be prepared BUT it was soooo loud you couldn't even talk to each other half the time. We've stayed at other NAS, but they weren't like this. One night I timed the jets going over us, it was every 45 seconds for over 2 1/2 hrs until almost 11pm. Every day we were there the jets went over the campground for several continuous hours. The campground itself is very nice. There are some trees, the sites are spacious & it's very clean. There is a nice playground for the kids & the laundry was one of the nicest base laundries around. It's close to the beach & Williamsburg & Jamestown were within an hour from there. Jackie, who runs the campground, was very nice & does a great job. I would have given it a much higher rating but we just couldn't stand the noise.

Love this campground! Jackie goes above and beyond to keep her campers happy. She is an excellent manager. The campground is always clean and there is a great playground for the kids. The only downside is the upper management PJ who harasses the people staying here and makes disparaging comments about active duty personnel. She isn’t around this campground very often so she is easy to avoid. I love the proximity to the beach and to the base services. I would stay here again as long as Jackie is still running the place!
