Be in the middle of peaceful acreage and just a scenic ride on 460 from Virginia Beach, 1 hour, Williamsburg - Jamestown Ferry, 20 minutes

Spend the day touring Williamsburg, Virginia Beach and then take a free ferry ride and enjoy camping at the Thornton farm. The farm is a manicured property that's secure and peaceful. We're just 5 miles away from Wakefield, so enjoy breakfast at the infamous Virginia Diner or pickup a few road snacks from Adam's Peanuts. The Farm's my favorite spot but don't take my word, come camp and check it out for yourself.

This was my first time using this website so I was unsure a little of what to expect. Upon arriving, Marvin was outside waiting to greet us with a smile. Marvin was very kind and welcoming. Since we were the only ones there my dogs got to run freely. We played cornhole, walked around, set up camp and relaxed. I would certainly come back here in the future.

This is the site we set up at.

This dude, went OUT OF HIS WAY, to make sure I had the best experience on his property. I absolutely could not recommend this guy enough. Even though I didn’t arrive until 9:30pm, he had a fire lit and a smile to welcome me. I’m sure there are more “up-scale” campgrounds. But I’m certain there is not a more up-scale man running this fantastic establishment. His goal is CLEARLY customer satisfaction and he absolutely crushed it. It was just me and my dog for a single night, couldn’t be happier, will absolutely actually go out of my way to stay here again in the future, even if it costs me an hour in driving time.

The area Marvin has marked out for each site are great! Each one has ample space and allows for privacy.

Marvin was a great host, I also added 2 bundles of firewood which he brought over. In the bundles he also included an ample amount of kindling. He also brought over an axe for us to split wood, and there was plenty of firewood throughout the area surrounding our camp which we could have also used.

The bathroom and shower we clean and we had a great time! Thank you Marvin!!

Nice quiet sites. Hot and cold water and toilet on site. More than enough wood for the night for $5. Very easy going host. I highly recommend.
