Thousand trails spots in VA

We're looking to camp in VA for spring break using our Thousand trails membership. Hoping for some recommendations. I understand swimming probably won't be open anywhere. Our choices are 1)Chesapeake Bay RV Resort 2)Harbour View RV and Camping 3)Lynchburg RV 4) Virginia Landing and 5) Williamsburg RV and Camping. Favorites, dislikes, anything. We've never been to any of these and don't want to pick blindly. Thanks

I think there pretty much all the same, the real question is what do you want to see around them. Each one is different. Such as Lynchburg, close to the Blue ridge, Williams burg close to the the village and history. Chesapeake Ocean, and so on...i live in Virginia and know it well and then think about the climate at time of year, they are really a lot of difference.

I would pick Chesapeake first, Williamsburg, Harborview, Lynchburg then Va. Landing, with at least the first 2 close to Williamsburg and things to see and do

It's my understanding that Virginia Landing is a good 45-50 minute drive to get to the ocean. It's misleading when you look on the map. I've heard it's a nice park, though. Seems best suited for folks who want to go fishing.

Of the Virginia parks, I've only been to Harborview and Williamsburg.

Harborview is a cute park, but there's not a whole lot in the area. You need to go with the plan to be camping and just hanging out. The little town of Colonial Beach is cute, but there's not a whole lot to it. George Washington's birth place is nearby and I know friends went and said that was fine.

You CAN technically tour DC from there, but figure on 2+ hours to get into the city depending on how you go. Especially if you take mass transit.

Our spot was strangely huge in it's layout:



And here was an interesting rig and another spot in the park:





Williamsburg is the opposite. To me, the park is just so/so but it did have an indoor pool if you do want to go swimming. But the area is rich in history. We went there for spring break back in 2013 or 2014 and then again just last September.

I didn't get a good shot of our campsite this past visit, so here's a crappy view of it. We were in an outer edge of the park that was a little more spacious than the rest of the park. However, there was a bit of a hill getting into our site. Once we got past that, it wasn't bad. We were under a tree and squirrels would chuck stuff at the camper and us.
