We stayed at American Heritage April 3-6 with our 3 grandkids. The park was "ok". It is a little hard to find, so I suggest using google maps to get a good look where it is. As you arrive it's like you are going into a residential neighborhood then the drive into the park is kinda tight. The time of year we were there most of the amenities were not open, so didn't get to use any of them. It is convenient to williamsburg, yorktown and jamestown. They do sell some discount tickets to the local things at williamsburg/yorktown and jamestown that was a good deal with a combined ticket. We looked at a couple other parks but this one had really good reviews. Can't speak to the others but we rate this one as "ok".

You could check out Newport News City Park Campground. Rustic and lots of trees for shade. It's about 5 miles into Williamsburg.

We like Newport News but the prices have risen considerably and at least when we were camping there, there were no sewer hook ups. It is heavily treed but it is right down the road from Williamsburg. Some of the commercial campgrounds in that area are near train tracks. You could stay at Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry, VA and take the ferry across to the Williamsburg area. If you have children, that would be fun and you are in a state park setting.

2X on America Heritage. We had a very nice patio say when we were there and I thought the rates are very competitive for being in a resort area. It's immediately off the interstate however it is just a short turn which can be missed on a small residential street.

We stayed at Anvil cg . It's real close to Colonial Williamsburg but closer to the RR tracks. Only got woken up twice.

We stayed at American Heritage over the Memorial Day weekend. It was very quiet even though it was packed almost to capacity. We didn't have any problem with the access road or finding it using Co Pilot. The pool was open and the giant slide was blown up, but we didn't use any amenities anyway.

Anvil has the best location, but Amtrax runs all day and freight runs all night. Add the busy local highway on one side and a major highway across the tracks all you need is a large airport nearby.... wait you do have that. Bring some industrial strength earplugs and enjoy great local resteurants and transportation options.

Exclamation Williamsburg....

My husband and I are also wondering about a campground in the area. We'd like something close, but we don't need activities for the kids, since they're all grown. LOL!

There is a nice KOA about 5-8 minutes up the road from the theme parks. We stayed there last year for a weeks vacation and found it to be really nice.

Another vote here for American Heritage. It is a nice park and away from the congested areas. Trains are just something you cannot avoid all along the I-64, Rt. 60 corridor. Unlike many folks, we actually love to be near tracks and love the sounds of trains.

If you like BBQ, you must try Pierce's while in the area. It is a favorite of both locals and visitors.

Another vote for American Heritage, especially since they have paved the roads. Unless you are true train fan, the Anvil is horrible. We had a site that was about 20 feet from the tracks. Nothing noisier than unloaded coal cars tearing through at night. Our daughter likes the KOA.
