My husband and I love this campground, we used to go to the outer banks, but they do not have the beautiful waterview you get at Cherrystone. This is the only place we come anymore. It's close to us about an hour and a half away, and whether you are at the bait shop , general store, or checking in everyone is gracious and helpful .

Came back for the clam roast and was not disappointed. Had a great time with all the activities, we even won a cake which we had after the clam roast. Staff was helpful and friendly, site was clean and the price was great. Going back again this summer, glad we found this place.

Room Tip: Try to get a site on the water, sunsets were great.

Just spent 6 days at this lovely campground. At this time of the year, it was very quiet and peaceful, which is what we wanted. The views and sunsets were awesome. The campground was clean and there was a lot of staff busy getting the place ready for the upcoming season. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to the couple that runs the bait and tackle store. They gave us a lot of helpful information on kayaking in this area. We will plan on returning, but not during the summer. We loved the place just the way it was this time of the year.

They are the worst place I have ever been if you have your own golf cart or electric Car and I have been to hundreds of campsites.

They rent their own of course!

Good: General store has everything for your RV!
Staff very friendly (not Management)
Had a good stay there. ( with exception of the management)
View was great

BAD:
They need to replace the General manager. He will be the unprofessional arrogant slob (the way he dresses) you would not hire if it were your business.

Beware: if you take your own Golf Cart or electric car. I have a fully street legal GEM. Fully registered with Delaware Car Tag and full insurance. I Pre-registered my car with a car pass.

1. They chased me down at the campsite and said I could not drive it until i received another pass for it. OK....
2. Returned to front desk where I was told it was ok to use the car pass.
3. Chased down again at the general store and told to go back again.
4. Had to call my insurance company and fax a face sheet of insurance. When I complained the General Manager stated we can do anything we want were privately owned.

My recommendation would be go up the road to Tall Pines if you have an extra vehicle to run around the park their great there!

Room Tip: Ask for water front

Thank you for your review, we will look into updating our information. We, as many campgrounds, rv parks and neighborhoods, have been using the term "golf cart" to represent a wide variety of vehicles. In todays society there are several electric vehicles which are on the market now, used by campers and outdoor enthusist alike. We have several guests who bring Tom Berlins and GEM's as well as EZ Go and Club Car golf carts to use while they are here, and we have had only minor problems concerning our requirements for use of these vehicles. We will try harder in the future to make sure we include neighborhood electric vehicles, zero emmission vehicles and other low speed electric vehicles in our discription of "golf carts" in our information. Thank you for visiting with us and we hope to see you again. Happy Camping.

My family camps once a year. We usually try to check out different campgrounds but this is by far our favorite. We camp in a group of 20 to 30 (adults and kids). We are not into tents and have been staying in cabins since our miserable tent experience in Lancaster,PA 11 years ago.
Cherrystone is located in Cape Charles, a charming small town. Very nice people. First we rented a trailer but it was a bit cramped for my family of 5. The bathroom was soooooo cramped but we made the best of it. There was plenty of sleeping space but no privacy.
After that, we rented their largest cabin. I think they refer to it as a deluxe cabin. It was perfect! It was not ultra morn but it was perfect for those families who want to camp with conveniences.
The cabin is raised appx. 3 feet off the ground and has a porch with a light and chairs. You are provided a graveled parking spot in front of your side yard which is a good place for kids to play. The doors were sliding glass. When you enter, there is a double sleeper sofa adjacent to a modern tv which sat atop a free standing closet. Next to the tv was bunk beds. I think I remember it being a triple bunk but I could be mistaken. You have a full kitchen with fridge, sink, and small stove with plenty of cupboard space. Now for the best parts! A surprisingly spacious bathroom with a tub and plenty of hot water! A master bedroom with a queen bed, tv, and an actual door! Heat and air conditioning are also provided for your comfort!
The kids always bring their bikes and every kid at this family friendly spot has one! Bikes rule at Cherrystone so cars are required to drive super slow. You can rent bikes as well. There is a small lake with paddle boats and a small water park at the pool to keep kiddies cool. If fishing is your thing, you will love the fact that this campground sits directly on the Chesapeake Bay! There is a good fishing station with supplies to buy or rent. They will take you out for a day of deep sea fishing or you and the kids can rent crab traps and go crabbing off of one of the 5 or so piers right on the property!
The restaurant was great for breakfast and the days that I didn't want to cook and the ice cream cones they sold delighted the little ones. The general store has everything from nuts to bolts and beer and the farm stand is stocked with fresh local fruits and veggies and even sells fresh crabs!
We love it!
