Williamsburg, Virginia, offers something for everyone, from adventures at theme parks like Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Other visitors enjoy golf, biking and even bowling. RV parks in the area offer basketball and volleyball courts, shuffleboard, horseshoes and other active pursuits.

Wet and Wild

Water Country USA, with its over 30 water rides and attractions, is never far away. But at the end of the day, you can also relax by a pool near your campsite.

Pack up the the kids and head off for a splashing adventure at the Hippo Slide, at American Heritage RV Park. It is the largest inflatable slide in the world, according to the resort website, and guests can purchase passes for admission.

If the weather isn’t cooperative, Williamsburg Outdoor World, a private membership campground, offers an indoor pool in addition to its outdoor pool.

Going Green

More than a dozen world-class golf courses draw golfers to Williamsburg every year, but some RV parks in the area also offer guests a chance to putter around when they get back to camp. The whole family can play mini-golf at courses in Williamsburg KOA, American Heritage RV Park and Williamsburg Outdoor World, which also boasts an indoor spa to soothe tired muscles after a day on the green.

Biking and Bouncing

The Colonial Parkway offers avid cyclists 23 miles of scenic riding along the Historic Triangle past Yorktown Battlefield, Colonial Williamsburg and Historic Jamestown. But be beware; the cobble aggregate pavement on this popular biking route is often a bumpy ride.

Take a spin around the campground on rental bikes from Williamsburg KOA. If you run out of steam before the kids, take them to this park’s “jumping pillow” where they can make some new friends. Later, they can participate in daily crafts, games and socials, while you take the dog to play at the Kamp K-9 dog park.

Out and About

The Williamsburg area offers much to see, from history to shopping and dining, and many RV parks that put you close to the action. There are four parks within 15 miles of nearly all the local sites. Anvil Campground is a family owned and operated park that offers shuttle services to attractions for a nominal fee. You can park your rig at one of their standard or premium sites and let someone else do the driving for the duration of your stay. Or you can enjoy all the comforts of home by renting a campground cabin.

Back to Nature

Chippokes Plantation State Park is less than 20 miles from Williamsburg, but it’s a world away. The park is one of the oldest working farms in the United States, dating to the 1600s. It has a swimming complex, hiking and biking trails, cultivated gardens and native woodlands.
