It’s not surprising that this is an expensive campground, being a KOA and its location. That being said, it’s well maintained, has lots of amenities, and friendly staff.   Although one of the maintenance guys thought he was the sheriff and tried telling the crew that was detailing our coach they couldn’t be there (after I received approval from, and was recommend to them, by the office.)

As for Virginia Beach, there is lots to do here. I was stationed here in the early 80’s and the city looks nothing like it did back then. It is truly a resort city with miles of beaches and hundreds of hotels, motels, restaurants, and stores. Whatever you need, whatever you want to do, it’s here.

One warning though, Virginia Beach is home to Naval Air Station Oceana. It is the home of the Strike Fighter Wing Atlantic and Carrier Air Wings 1,3,7 and 8. (17 jet fighter squadrons). Be prepared If the “Sound of Freedom” bothers you. It is a Master Jet Base, and they fly almost everyday into the late evening.

    1. Hey Sal! Hope you and Deb are doing well. For work, I have a Verizon MIFI with four SIM cards $20 a piece for a total of 60 GB before they start throttling. Deb has a Nighthawk hotspot router through AT&T unlimited but they throttle during peak times when she goes way over (she watches a lot of videos). And lastly I have a WiFiRanger antenna that captures free WiFi within a two mile radius and brings in the signal behind a firewall so it’s a secure network. I use this when the campground signal is decent , which after four years on the road is about 10% of the time. That said, if the “free” signal is decent, i can save a lot of my “paid” WiFi especially when working and transferring large amounts of files. This saves me to use the paid WiFi on the numerous video conferences I have every week.
      We’re going to be in Jackson at Butterfly May 1 to May 15. If you want to stop by we can have a cookout and I can show you the systems.
