Located on canals that empty into North Bay, we are a family campground catering to families.  Bring your own bass boat & launch from our ramp, or rent a canoe or kayak and go exploring and fishing. Kids love our swimming pool, 3′ to 5′ depths. Many campsites are waterfront, and you can freshwater fish from your own site with a valid VA license (purchase at Walmart).  We are approximately three miles from Sandbridge Beach and ten miles from the resort strip at Virginia Beach. Play horseshoes in the playground area while kids swing. Purchase campfire wood and roast marshmallows at your grassy, shaded campsite. Our restrooms are clean and private.
