  • Va state campgrounds in general have great facilities for camping. Clean restrooms and showers, well kept campsites and easy access for all types of vehicles. Chipokes leads in these examples. Very friendly staff and camp host. The park offers many walking trails, a pool, beach access to the river and a forestry museum. I rate this as one of my best locations for weekend getaways.
  • It's across the James River from historic Jamestown. You can take a ferry ride there. The Chippokes Plantation is one of the oldest continually farmed pieces of land in the US. It's been a working farm since 1619. The historic area allows a tour of an antebellum mansion and outbuildings, stroll through formal gardens, and you can view antique farm equipment at the Chippokes Farm and Forestry Museum.
