  • Great park. 🌟 Located right off of 64. 🌟 Has a great bike and walking trails. 🌟 During the winter holidays they have a light show along with other activities year round. 🌟 Located on the water. They offer different water activities. 🌟 Great place for group activities and picnics.
  • We have stayed at this campground four times and it never disappoints, We do agree with other reviewers that the bathrooms could be better but they have started renovations and the ones in loop B are much better than they used to be. We travel in a Class A RV so we don't use theirs. They always give us a spacious site with plenty if room for our 28ft RV, Tow Car, and pop up tent. It's usually very quiet here and the staff is very friendly.
  • Drove through during their Christmas Lights event, so it was dark and I didn't stay long. Nice lighting, lots of variety in their decorating ideas. They theme certain parts of the trip, from a North Pole with penguin and icebergs, to a flotilla of light houseboats on a small pond. They make a few tunnels of lights, and have icicles and snowflakes throughout the trees. Pricing isn't too bad for a single car, I think about $12? Only lasted maybe 10 minutes though.
  • My wife and I have stayed here for several weeks and the experience has been wonderful. Staff goes out of their way to answer or physically help worth any problems you may have. Rangers pass through every half hour and are on call 24/7. While working at night our camper electricity went out late at night. My wife called the Rangers and said they had gotten to her within 2 minutes and worked on the problem until the electricity wad back on. Really great to wake up and find deer milling about or wild Turkey's. Really can't say enough about this place.
  • There is something for everyone at Newport News park. You can play disc golf, go on a hike through the trails and see earth works from historic battles, or take your kid to the playground. It is a wonderful place to have in the city.
