Williamsburg/ Busch Gardens KOA review

Williamsburg/Busch Gardens KOA is a great family campground located a few miles outside of Busch Gardens. It’s a great base for exploring everything the Williamsburg area has to offer. The campground is located in a wooded setting and has many different types of sites.

Sites near the back of the campground

We visited over Easter and found there were activities scheduled throughout the day including an Easter egg hunt and petting zoo.

If you visit during the summer season there is a great pool area.

There is an activities hut where they play movies and have games and tables available for family game night. The one drawback of this campground is the bathrooms were not well maintained. Often there were multiple stalls out of order. This may have been because it was such a busy weekend, but frustrating never the less.

Things to do in the Williamsburg area

Busch gardens and Water County USA are the well known amusement parks in the are. Busch Gardens is a beautiful clean park and the best part is it is divided into different countries with specialized food and drink options. You can carry alcohol throughout the park and in lines. The wine and food festival is fun if you visit in June with added kiosks featuring specialized food and drinks. Water Country USA, the separate water park is a great option for a hot day. Lots of great water slides, a wave pool and a lazy river.

Loch Ness Monster is my kids favorite coaster in the main park!
Splash Country is one of the best water parks we have ever been to!

For something else fun nearby, a Go Ape course offers fun for kids and adults. For Kids there is a scaled down course where they can zipline and climb through obstacles in the trees. Adults can enjoy the full zip line experience.

Another great option in the area is Colonial Williamsburg. Though I haven’t been since I was a kid, there are some great demonstrations and old buildings to explore from Colonial times. The historic part of town also contains many restaurants to explore.

We love visiting wineries in different areas, and Williamsburg was no exception. We decided to try Williamsburg winery. They have a great outdoor area and we enjoyed the wine.

For another option in the area, we have also stayed at American Heritage RV park. This is a beautiful campground with great sites. It has more of an adult feel, with fewer kid friendly amenities. If going to the area without kids, I would recommend staying there.
