Chesapeake Bay RV Resort, Thousand Trails

After a month of exploring Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina without reservations during our un-planning adventure, we were very excited to arrive in Virginia, and settle in at Thousand Trails Chesapeake Bay RV Resort.

This is a very nice Thousand Trails RV park. Especially nice considering we can stay here with no nightly fee using our Thousand Trails membership.

Thousand Trails Chesapeake Bay RV Resort is about an hour east of Richmond in a town called Gloucester. As you might have guessed, Gloucester is one of many cities that surround Chesapeake Bay.


Chesapeake Bay RV Resort has really nice amenities. There are two outdoor pools, baseball, basketball, volleyball, and pickleball courts.


For water lovers, there is both a lake, and river access. From swimming, fishing, and crabbing, to kayaking, boating, and water skiing, most every water activity you desire.

History buffs will love the proximity to the Virginia Historical Triangle of Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown. The Colonial parkway is a great scenic drive.

Area Attractions

For more youthful and adventurous entertainment, there are two amusement parks in the area. Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens are both about an hour away.

There are a total of around 365 sites on 280 acres. All RV sites are back-in. Power wise, 135 of the sites have 50amp, 210 have 30amp, and the remaining 20 don’t have power hookups, mostly used by tenters.
