Cheatham Annex offers one of the best outdoor recreation sites in the Navy. It exemplifies the coexistence between the Navy mission and the environment. Our 2,300 acres of woodlands and lakes are home to white-tailed deer, raccoon, squirrel, cotton tail, beaver and otter. More than 150 species of birds live in our woodlands year-round. Do not be surprised if you spot wild turkeys, osprey, great blue herons, great-horned owls, swans, quail or pheasants as you vacation. Our three freshwater lakes abound with large mouth bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish, to excite even the veteran fisherman.

I love it here. And yes it does deserve the Rating I gave it. The Mrs. and I carry a modem to upgrade our WIFI and cellphone service and have never had a problem with any such receptions I have seen posted herein. My wild life upgrade is that I and my puppy had to leave the RV at around 0315 so he could do his thing and came across a beautiful skunk in the campground. My pup wanted to get a hold of that creature and I had a good hold of his lease and pulling him back and away from the area. The skunk was holding his ground. Wild life all over the place to enjoy watching, but in this case at a distance. I used to say this was the best kept secret in the Navy, but not any longer. When we arrived it was fairly loaded with RVers and around 20 of them departed in a few days, just prior to us leaving at the end of the week it started to fill again. Just a suggestion, make your reservations there, whenever you have your RVing agenda established. As always, we will return to the best Naval MWR facility for RVs, campers, and those that like to just rent cabins on the East Coast, if not the USA.

If you depend on WiFi or cell service look elsewhere; we could not get WiFi in the campground and very little to no cell service. We depend on a hotspot to ensure our dog is safe. We had to leave after one night. Other than the nonexistent cell service, the campground is one of the best military campgrounds we have seen. All the pads are concrete and electrical posts are modern. Bathhouse was fairly new and clean. NEX minimart did not offer much for the campers.

We cam to the Williamsburg area for my Niece's graduation and stayed at the Annex. Excellent site, quiet (except for occasional live fire training in the distance. Only drawback was the lack of wifi and cell service on the Annex.

Very good campground location for visiting Williamsburg. Base has small eating place but not opened on the weekend. Local restaurants are about 5 miles from the base. All RV spaces are back-in and easy to get in and out. Good hookups, cable TV available but minimum channels. No Wi-Fi offered and our hotspot couldn't pick up a signal. Very quiet area and the price good for the location. Would stay again.

We have stayed in the cabins at CAX Outdoors many times over the years, but this was our first stay in the RV park. First off, if anyone has a desire to visit the Virginia Peninsula/Tri-cities Historic Area, this is your home base. Located on the York River, you are only minutes from Yorktown, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Busch Gardens, Water Country USA and the cities of Hampton and Newport News. There is no other place as conveniently located. The RV sites are very well maintained with a concrete slab that has room enough for an RV and an additional vehicle. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. There is a children's play set in the field next to the restrooms/bathhouses. The bath houses them selves are in good condition and everything worked. The only complaint with regard to the bathhouses is that they need a good deep cleaning and a coat of paint, particularly in the showers where the floor paint is almost completely worn off. Regarding amenities on the base, there is a small convenience store/gas station on Sanda Rd, the main road, and there is a snack bar, 4th Street Grill, on 4th street just past the Navy Gateway Inn and Suites. CAX Outdoors/MWR also has an extensive list of recreational equipment available for rent. Aside from the issue that I mentioned with the bathhouses, The only other thing that bothered me was something that is one of my pet paves, that being previous campers to our site were smokers and obviously sat outside near enough to the fire pit to smoke and toss their butts in the fire pit, with no fire burning, so that there was a pile of their butts in the fire pit that they didn't bother to pickup before they left. I have no problem with people smoking, I do have a problem with inconsiderate smokers who leave their burnt up butts for someone else to cleanup. Which I had to do before I could build a fire to use to cook our dinner and no, I didn't want the flavor of their cigarette butts in my food. We will definitely stay at the Kings Creek Campground again in the future.

As this is primarily an RV park with cabins, and tent camping is a distant third offering, there are not many tent camping reviews. I am writing this review for any future tent campers to benefit from our experience. First, always book the "primitive" sites over by the RV park. Stay away from the w/e sites as they are rundown, tightly spaced, and oddly located right across from one of the golf holes. We wouldn't even camp there for free, much less the $20 they charge. But the "primitive" sites? So much better! I put word in quotations because there is nothing primitive about them, except for lack of electric hookup. But you have access to a potable water spigot and the restrooms are very nice (no showers that I saw.) We were at site 6 and it was spacious and level. No issue putting up two tents and a camp kitchen. And because this place is a well-kept secret, we had no other campers around us and we could be very *liberal* with our camp boundaries. Plenty of fallen wood on the ground for fires, we never lacked for any suitable firewood. Bring a hatchet for some of the larger fallen branches. Only a few cons that we found: 1. The streetlights are annoying while you're trying to sleep. If you must have pitch black, bring a tarp to put over your tent to block the light. There is really no way to situate your tent to not be exposed to a light. There is one about every 15 feet. 2. This is not a quiet experience. You're right by cabins and rv-ers who may be looking to party it up for the weekend. We didn't mind, but if you're looking for a truly primitive, remote getaway - this aint it. 3. Not a lot to do. We followed a trail and walked about a mile to the NEX mini-mart. We went to the fishing hole. We found a scenic spot. Other than that, expect to hang out at camp a lot. Nothing wrong with that, just be aware. Would we go back? Absolutely! Already planning a return trip. Great price, good location that hasn't been overrun. If you want to tent camp but don't want to be cut off from civilization, this is your spot.

Great location near Williamsburg! Concrete sites, plenty of room between neighbor. Fire ring. Picnic table unusable because of wharped boards. Laundry very nice, but we were there 16 days and the broken washer was not fixed. Same with the shower. Who is managing the place? We called 3 times to pay for our campsite for the last half and no one would answer the phone. We left messages, no one returned them. Had to drive a couple of miles over to the office. Gowifi worked sometimes, usually not. The new campground would be great if those that ran the place would manage it better. Sad.

This is a very nice campground. All back-in sites but with plenty of room between sites. The facilities are clean. The Wi-Fi is basically non existent. Even if you can get on the signal is weak and drops off frequently. We were right across from a transmitter and the service was horrible. The cell service is just about as bad. Other than the Wi-Fi and cell service being bad this is a great place to stay. The most expensive military campground we have stayed at but give the options in the area it is not bad. There is plenty of room to walk the dog and there is a nice trail around Cheatham Pond.

No internet, no WiFi, great price. Perfect for enjoying family time and not being stuck with a device in your face. The campground is quiet! The only thing you hear are air conditioners and bugs. I loved it! Close to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. Good fishing on base. Pool and mini Nex are just fine. Easy access to the highway. We stayed in a 42 foot fifth wheel and had no problems.

I have always loved this Camp Ground. Quiet secluded and beautiful. However folks I do not think I will ever return in the heat of Summer. Why, little pests called mosquitos by the thousands. Ticks also. I was walking my 7 month old Cocker Spaniel who headed down one of the marked trails that I have taken dozens of times in the past, but always in the late fall and winter. Got near the foot bridge and the mosquitos attacked. Got out in a hurry. The next day we stayed on the roadway and walked around to the area used for tent camping and walked through to the pathway leading back to the restroom/shower facilities and again the mosquitos. I noted that there were three different camp sites in use and gone the next morning. Got back to the RV and the Mrs. helped remove ticks from the back of my body. We checked the puppy and found none on him. Don't get me wrong Cheatham is a wonderful campground facility. Just be prepared to have some type of insect repellent with you and use it before wondering away from your RV site. Will be back this fall or winter. We were there over Father's Day weekend and there was a load of fellow campers, but did not see or was able to chat with many of them since they were celebrating his day in Williamsburg or Busch Gardens theme park. The site I was assigned was not very level, but we carry enough leveling blocks to take care of this problem. Internet access was ok since we carry our own modem upgrade to enhance the reception. One night our puppy wanted to go out at around 3:30 a.m. to do his thing. Opened the door and a fox was right there. It looked at my pup who returned the stare then the fox took off across the street and turned back around and watched us for several minutes before heading into the woods. Like I have stated in the past, Wildlife galore. Haven't seen a black bear, but Virginia's Black Bear population is growing pretty darn fast.

Great location for seeing the sights of Williamsburg. The RV spots are well shaded and spacious. Easy to back into and the restrooms are clean and well kept. The only down side is the internet is very spotty and there are no amenities on base besides a shoppette.

What a great place! Tucked-away near Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. Very secluded. Clean and cheap. Great facilities. Big flat pads. All utilities worked well. Nice trails for walking the dog on. We didn't want to leave.

Stayed here again during the first week of December 2016. We wanted to see the Grand Illumination in Williamsburg and do a little Christmas Shopping. As usual we got stuck in the Yankee Candle Mall. That didn't deter us for dining out. The wife followed up on meeting me at the Campground/RV Park the evening I checked in. Thank God we are from Richmond Virginia and that it only took an hour to get there. She left her ID Card at home on the table. Had to use my bike to peddle to the Main Gate and prove she was my spouse. Eventually, they let her in and I had to peddle my bike back to the RV Park. It was in the high 30s and my fingers were numb for quite a while after I got back to our RV. Not Funny. Earlier, I had stopped at a RV Center in Richmond and discovered that I didn't have my ID Card. I had left it at a storage facility on another military facility and that is where I lost my ID Card. Raced back to that location and no one had turned it in. Had to get a new ID Card. Luckily, the Pass and Tag office was still open. I was the last customer and they did not complain. So December 2nd did not start out all that well, but Cheatham Annex was so nice to get to. All my necessary paper work was waiting for me at the Main Gate. I had already had reservations for about two months and knew what site I was assigned. I always carry eight 2 X 10 X 12 inch treated boards for leveling the RV if necessary. I have automatic leveling at the push of a button, and the boards reduces the height the levelers have to go up to get the unit level. Actually, I have only discovered one pad that was really out of whack and always make sure that I did not ask for that spot again. It is easy to ask for the space one wants to use. The RV Park has never been full at any time of the year. Hunting season for deer has a few more spaces being used for the season, but never to the point of having to worry about being able to get in. Found out why the digital locks were placed on the bathroom doors. It appears that some adults let their kids go to them on their own and the bathrooms were trashed. I mean trashed. It is now possible to determine who is responsible for trashing the bathrooms. I usually, ask for spaces on the front row across from the bathrooms and I have noticed that the staff and or maintenance personnel clean those facilities at least one to two times daily. I guess depending of the use of any assigned bathroom. I believe no one can complain about the service at Cheatham. The NEX Service Station/Mini Mart carries a lot of supplies for campers and the almost Class 6 Store inside should meet anyone's alcoholic needs. The staff there are super friendly and goes out of their way to assist you. We have Verizon as our cellphone service and have not found any dead spots on Cheatham Annex. We carry a Verizon Upgrade Modem to ensure that we can use our Laptops and IPADS without worry of someone hacking our financial information. No problems yet. We will be back to the Best kept secret in the Navy.

Great Famcamp.  W/E/S all solid.  Our 40' MH fit well in the assigned site. The campground was pretty empty during most of our stay, but nearly full over the weekend.  The Rec Office staff told me they stay pretty full after Memorial Day.  For those who don't have an RV, at both the new and the older areas they have pretty amazing "cabins" that go all the way up to five bedrooms if I remember correctly.  The Cheatham Annex recreational facility is wonderful, with pond/lake access, views of the York River, hiking trails, and a golf course.  We don't golf so can't address quality of the course.  We were here for Cheryl's William & Mary Reunion and the location is great for access to the college and the other Williamsburg attractions.  Two items kept me from rating the facilities higher.  1. Like so many Famcamps with concrete pads, many were horribly un-level. I don't understand why a base will spend a great deal of money for concrete pads and do such a poor job - you only need a 2 percent grade or a gentle crest in the middle to get the pad to drain.  2. WiFi is poorly set-up.  They use directional antennas which are pointed to the dozen cabins and away from the many RV sites.  Camp Host told me she had addressed it with the base, but did not know if any adjustments would be made.  As others have mentioned the campground is in mostly dead-zone for cell service.  We were able to use our AT&T phones for voice about half the time, but data strength signal was not there.  Mixed opinions on whether this is a good or bad thing :-)

As always, love coming here and found everything to be above reproach. The Staff are courteous and friendly. I for the most part did not have to use the restrooms, but did have the occasion to enter one of them and found them to be very clean. There is now a digital lock on the doors to them. This added security made it more comfortable to use. Nothing wrong prior to the locks being added, but a woman did tell me she liked the added security. Makes sense since all the mess going on around USA in regards to men having access to women's restrooms. I took to the use of one of the hiking trails close to the Dumpsters. It is not on their facility maps. I took if for the exercise. Unless you like challenges don't take it. The trail ended on one of the gravel roads next to Queen's Creek. I still had a couple of miles to get back to the paved roads. Not bad, but I will do the trail again the next time I'm staying there. There were benches placed every so often on the trail. My Walk Fit indicated I took 26,753 steps to complete the trail. Kings Creek RV Campground is still the Best kept secret in the U.S. Navy.
