NWSY/Cheatam Annex, VA

chea1

Cheatam Annex is conveniently located near Williamsburg, VA. On the south shore of the York River, Cheatam's FAMCAMP is located beside the golf course. There are two loops of sites: 1-10 are on the shore of King's Creek, while 11-19 overlook the golf course. All sites offer full E/W/S/cable TV hookups. There is a very clean, modern bathhouse with laundry facilities and a TV lounge.

Since our last visit, Cheatam Annex has opened a new RV park at the northwest corner of the large warehouse area. The waterfront sites described below have supposedly been converted to tent-only sites - too bad. And please note that use of the campground is restricted to military personnel only.

Reservations: 757 887-7418

On our latest stop at Cheatham, we were on site 5, which is a back-in site right beside the bay. A great view.

Date of visit: Nov 2010

We've never run into this in any other campground at which we have stayed - a single grave-site just a couple of feet from the RV.

Sites 4-7 are the closest to the creek. On an earlier visit, we were on #4; the trailer beyond us is on #5. Just to the left is #6, which is a pull-through with the curb-side facing the water.

Date of visit: Nov 2005

We stopped at Cheatham again a year later, and as you see, the weather was lot more pleasant. This time we were on Site #6, a small pull-through, the best of all sites in our opinion, nice and sunny with a great view of the bay.

Date of visit: Nov 2006

In Nov 2009, on our trek southward in our "new" Lazy Daze, we were assigned site 1 This is the site closest to the bathhouse, diagonally across the street.

From the right, these are sites 6 (our site), 7, 8, and 9. All have cement pads. However, the pad on #9 has crumpled and sunken - I would avoid it. Also, #3 has a very short pad very close to the road, suitable only for a pop-up or small van.

Here's the bathhouse - a very clean facility. It has a washer and dryer - coins required. In our 2006 visit, we found that the TV had been removed from the lounge.

Here are some of the sites facing the golf course, starting with #11 at the left.

A nice playground is available for the kids.
