Video Tour – Thousand Trails Chesapeake Bay RV Resort

This week, Jimmy and Lisa of Find Us Camping found another great campground in the Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  Thousand Trails Chesapeake Bay RV Resort is located in Gloucester, VA. This campground is located near Virginia’s “Historical Triangle” which is made up of Yorktown, Colonial Williamsburg, and the Jamestown Settlement, all of which are worth checking out. For those looking to take a nice drive, the Colonial Parkway connects the three areas with beautiful scenery along the way. They will show you everything about this campground through their ride along tour.
