Cheriton Virginia, Cherrystone Campground

by Donna Kent
(Plymouth Meeting, PA)

This campground is on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, 11 miles north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (the 17 mile bridge that takes you underwater twice)....and sits on the Chesapeake Bay. This campground has been around forever but is well maintained and a fantastic family-oriented campground.

From 4 fishing piers, to boat rentals, produce stand, fresh seafood stand, a general store, a laundromat, restaurant, activities, even movies for the kids!! Worship services, activities, crafts, I could go on and on.

This is a great campground, was always moderately priced the years I used to go and everyone camped in every,thing from a tent to the big RVs.
Nothing beats walking to one of the 4 fishing piers each night to catch the sunset!

One major piece of advice, reserve early, reserve as soon as you know when you might be going...this is a well known campground with a large percentage of returning campers year after year. The years I used to camp there I'd actually leave my deposit for my site 12 months ahead!! Their refund policy was very fair and was clearly written. They gave you (I think) about 10 days prior to check in to cancel...but better check the website to be sure!

The ocean beach closest without going across the bridge (expensive toll) is to go north to Chincoteague, to Assateague Island...and see the wild ponies while you are there! But, if you don't like crowds, stay away from Chincoteague during the annual pony penning and auction when they actually have a 'pony drive' through the water with the ponies prior to auctioning some off..this is usually around the 3rd week of July. If you check the Chincoteague Va website they always list the dates.

Don't go to Cherrystone!

I have been there several times every time I swear to never return. My last visit is most definately my LAST visit. I gave it a few chances but this last time was it for me. The campsites are small and squished together. There are SO many people crammed into one area that if feels more like a refugee camp instead of a family campground. My last visit I found out the hard way that when it rains the whole campground floods. I arrived to find my campsite under water and Cherrystone told me it was their policy to NOT give refunds. No matter what the circumstances. MY CAMPSITE WAS UNDER WATER!

I am ready to go too!

This sounds like a great campground much so that I checked out the website and I definitely want to add it to my list of places to camp!
