We're contemplating a trip from Chicago to the Virginia area. Things we're interested in seeing (that we know about) are Washington DC, Luray Caverns, Charlottesville and Monticello (I'm a UVa girl but haven't been back since I graduated 22 yrs. ago), and Williamsburg. I'm sure there are other things we haven't considered or don't know about and welcome suggestions. We're probably looking at a 10 day trip and could do the drive in a single day each way. Does anyone familiar with the area have campgrounds reservations and suggestions on how long to spend in each place?

Can certainly recommend American Heritage RV park in Williamsburg..easy to get to right off I-64. We live near Roanoke/Lynchburg and have not been to the Luray area for several years but there are campgrounds in the area.

If you don't have a Trailer Life or Woodalls directory, might try rvparkreviews.com.

Have a great trip.

We usually stay at the Jamestown Beach Campsites. Jamestown Beach Link

While we have only ever been there at Christmas time, it seems like a very nice campground and is central to most Williamsburg/Jamestown/Yorktown attractions. It is right across the street from the Jamestown Settlement, a recreation of the original Jamestown. Also, only a short drive to the Jamestown Ferry.

A "Hoo Girl" coming back to "Hooville"! You will be amazed at the changes in 22 years. Traffic is pretty bad north of the city, so I would recommend that you plan on staying at the Charlottesville KOA. Nice people, nice setting and just a few miles off of Rt. 29 south of the city. The city is still beautiful though and so many great restaurants and places to see. We have never stayed at Misty Mountain C.G. near Crozet, but you probably can get an opinion from rvparkreviews. Staunton has a nice museum called Frontier Culture and a nice campground just north of there is the Staunton Verona KOA. Lots for kids to do - tubing on the river, two ponds, a gorgeous setting and very nice grounds. The place is packed on the weekends though, so you may have a tough time getting a site. We also like the Harrisonburg KOA. Luray has several campgrounds - we were not impressed with Country Waye, but our grandkids loved the Luray Jellystone CG. Feel free to contact me if you want more information.

I can second Williamsburg Heritage, it is a wonderful campground. We also love Cozy Acres in Powhatan(it has a web site that accurately depicts it). We enjoyed the Charlottesville KOA and our friends gave a good recommendation for Misty Mountain but we ran out of time last season before getting there and intend to this year.

I'll third the Amercian Heritage. We were there in '04 and had a great time. It's kind of a quiet place with a pool that doesn't seem to get much use. It was very convenient to Jamestown and Williamsburg and we even made a trip to VA Beach from there one day.
