Travel Day - King's Creek Fam-Campground

Wed Judy and I got a late morning start on our travel day to the Williamsburg area of Virginia.  I finished my last task at the SML SP dump station at 9:30.

Most of the 214 mile drive was so relaxing through the Virginia countryside.  If you have ever driven in the VA. countryside you know what I mean.  It was so nice not having tire problems. The "Pressure Pro" TPMS was silent the entire trip, silence truly is golden.

Judy and I arrived at the "King's Creek" CG at 4:00 PM and had the fiver set up on the nice concrete pad in no time.  Judy was so excited that she could use the SAT for Direct TV, although the sites have cable. The CG is located on Cheatham Annex,  part of the Naval Weapons Station, Yorktown, VA.  I have been here at the weapons station many times on various "Ships of the Line" to get our combat load out before forward deployment.  In the evening I heard the crack of small arms fire from the nearby small arms training range. It was a comforting sound. 

Site #10 "Kings Cross" CG

I pulled the following CG description from, US Military Campgrounds and Rv Parks

Cheatham Annex offers one of the best outdoor recreation sites in the Navy. It exemplifies the coexistence between the Navy mission and the environment. Our 2,300 acres of woodlands and lakes are home to white-tailed deer, raccoon, squirrel, cotton tail, beaver and otter. More than 150 species of birds live in our woodlands year-round. Do not be surprised if you spot wild turkeys, osprey, great blue herons, great-horned owls, swans, quail or pheasants as you vacation. Our three freshwater lakes abound with large mouth bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish, to excite even the veteran fisherman.

The CG, like all famCamps on military bases is only available to active military or military retirees.

That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
Next Blog: Sat.


  1. Looks like a nice site. You military folks are lucky to have that option. Monday we'll be rolling through VA, stopping at a Cracker Barrel to overnight on our way to NC for the RV Dreams rally in Franklin.

  2. I would love that campground with lakes for freshwater fishing and plenty of opportunities for bird watching. Not sure about the sound of gunfire being comforting though. :>)

    It's interesting that a weapons base is also an outdoor recreation site. Must feel almost surreal to be there to relax in contrast to your memories of Naval service here.

  3. I put that one our RV list. Looks like a nice place.
