They say “At Cherrystone Family Camping Resort the fun never ends”, so what better way to find out if that’s true than to get that family out of the house and down to Cherrystone!
Cherrystone Family Camping Resort is set on 300 amazing acres of natural waterfront of that beautiful part of the country called Chesapeake Bay! Whether you are an RV loving family, or a family that wants to enjoy something different with deluxe cottages or camping cabins, they have something for you!
Want to hear something else great? You don’t even have to own an RV to enjoy this camping resort! There are a number of on-site RVs ready and waiting to be enjoyed by those families who want to have that RV experience (it really is great fun!)
For those families wanting to go back to basics with their camping, there are water/electric only campsites, as well as no-hook up sites for those wanting to enjoy “true” camping.
The park itself is set with all the amenities you will need for a comfortable, and fun, family time away together.
They have a lovely general store with everything you need, as well as a seasonal farm stand (Pretty impressive for a camp site!). Kids can enjoy their stay by cooling off in their swimming pools, or enjoying the daily activities that the campsite put on for everyone! There is a fun arcade, a creative craft shop with painting and candlemaking, a fun jumping pillow and even mini golf!
We haven’t even listed everything! If this sounds right up your family street, then head on down to Cherrystone Family Camping Resort and enjoy being entertained!

My goodness, where do I start? Place needs better leadership. I've been going to this place for 30 years now. It is the worse it has ever been. The cafe needs new leadership. The waitresses were very sweet to us but the food was really crappy. My son and I were disappointed by several dishes but the one that stands out the most was the breakfast hot cakes. How do you mess up hot cakes? The were slightly undercooked and tasteless no matter how much butter and syrup you put on them. We both took about 3 bites and trashed it The cook has got to go,...Read More

Will come back. Boat rentals were great. the sites were well managed and spacious enough for our 30 foot RV. Staff was friendly. swimming in the bay, fishing, boating, crabbing. The little ones had so much fun! Sunset was spectacular.

My parents started taking our family to this campground in the mid 80's. Now I am in my early 40's and taking my family to this wonderful campground.

I love it here. Fishing is great, tons of fun with the jumping thing that they have out front and with mini golf, a nice pool, and just minutes from cape charles. Bathrooms though are a bit, gross.

How do you mess up hot cakes? The were slightly undercooked and tasteless no matter how much butter and syrup you put on them. We both took about 3 bites and trashed it The cook has got to go, or be re-trained. Get John Taffer in there to fix things. Go back to their old soft ice cream recipe. That is one thing that made me really dig cherrystone for was taste of their soft serve ice cream. They need more entertainment gaming machines, a lot of open wall space should have games in front of them. Fix the damn mens bathroom door, it doesn't shut and you know it. Fire the guy who is in charged of fixing it. Tell the manger that it is ok that people just visit the cafe while they are washing their clothes, and to not make them feel as though they need to order something in order to sit there, especially when there is only 4 people in the cafe at 900 am. The cafe should be treated as a courtesy to patrons rather than an independent business. Additionally, on the topic of wild animals, if there are Raccoons raiding coolers at night (I eye witnessed this) and one of your patrons (me) complains, and the office says they will take care of it, take care of it! After having my trash scattered for 4 nights in a row, 3 packs of bologna stolen, 2 packs of cheese stolen, 2 lbs of thick cut bacon stolen, and knowing the raccoon was rummaging through my cooler, i decided to find out where the so called "RANGERS" were with the progress of relocating the rodent. That is when I was told the Rangers cannot trap the Raccoon so therefore they could not do anything about it. Because of the raccoon, my food basically ruined, and with the cafe not being a viable option, me and my son decided we'd rather be at home rather than stay at Cherrystone for another day, so we left 2 days early. Oh and another thing, I'm 52 and my son is 14. We decided to star gaze by laying down, after dark when nobody was playing there, in the middle of the basketball court to hopefully avoid mosquitos. The "RANGER" (Don) became alarmed and thought it necessary to shine a halogen spot light from his golf cart at us and order us off the court. He said we weren't allowed on the court after dark, although there is no sign posted at the court supporting this, or anything I signed anywhere supporting that this was a legitimate rule. When I told him my boy and I were star gazing, he told me we couldn't do it there and we should do it in our camp site. I told him the obvious, "We can't see the stars past the trees". He said you need to get off the court. I think the title of “RANGER” has had a bad effect on Don. At that moment, I felt as though I was staying at a compound of some sort and lost the feel of being on vacation. Afterwards, I went to the “Ranger” station to talk with Don’s supervisor, I was told his name was HOP and he wasn’t there. The guy said it was Hop’s rule and that if my son and I wanted to star gaze we could go lay in the grass with the mosquitos. That is just a load of bull crap. So why would I even want to come to Cherrystone when I get hassled for doing the simplest pleasures a person should have the ability and the right to do while on vacation? The answer is, I wouldn’t, I am probably done with Cherrystone.
