J.A. left this review using the Directory software: - We stayed here five days. It was a nice walk to the beach and my dogs enjoyed the outing. Although the weather was chilly it was nice to be outside. The only thing we didn't like were troops doing their early morning PT trainging right outside our camper. Very loud and sleep disturbing at 7:00 am.

We stayed in our 30 foot motorhome in the "old" campground. However, the old campground has been remodeled and has concrete pads, new power, lots of space between sites and nice trees. We choose site 60, right next to the boardwalk to a wonderful white sand beach. The laundry facilities were great, we got several TV channels with our antenna. Close to shopping if needed. WiFi is available at the small NEX 1/2 mile from campground. Bill, the manager, was very friendly and helpful.

The only criticism I can come up with was the lack of cable TV (oh darn), but the over air reception of about 20 local channels was good. Tough to get reservations in the dead of summer, but easy in the so-called Virginia Beach "shoulder" seasons (late September through mid November and mid March through May). The main thing I love about this campground is that it is REALLY quiet (all you can hear is the surf pounding and I was awakened Monday morning by a company of Marines running and calling cadence...brought back memories and was fun to watch). Plus the accessibility of big box stores and a TON of restaurants (some are quite good) only about 5 minutes away on General Boothe Boulevard made this a really sweet place. Yes, the beach is a hike (or a short drive - always plenty of parking) but the beach itself is superb...no fighting for square footage as is the case on the main Virginia Beach oceanfront. We've been there a few times (we don't live but an hour and a half away) with the same experience. Every site we've been on is about as level as you can get. Most on-base amenities are available or are a very short drive to the Master Jet Base at Oceana (commissary, large exchange, two excellent golf courses, even a skeet/trap shooting center). Staff is very friendly and helpful with directions and advice, etc. Highly recommended.

We stayed in a 40 foot motor coach in September and the place was very nice. Lots are paved and very large (only problem was only a few pull thrus and the one that they did have, had a pull behind trailer sitting in it) but we had to drop the car we were pulling. We were in the new section and Yes, it is quite a hike to the beach, but it was nice being able to hear the ocean over the dune behind our RV. The staff was extremely friendly and the entire base very neat and easy to get around. No cable, but got local channels on our antenna. We would definitely go back.

I have stayed at Sea Mist for the past 3 summers for extended periods of time. It is an exceptional place. The additional new sites are well done but if you prefer mature trees go to the adjacent older site. All facilities - pads, W, S, E, bath houses - have been upgraded. The site is very well maintained and the hosts are always helpful. Within several miles is a major PX/BX, Commissary, and MWR office. The beach is a bit of a walk but you can still hear the surf at night. The swimming beach is about a half mile away and has lifeguards through Labor Day. Virginia Beach is close by so you can experience all the things a seaside summer tourist area has to offer. The only drawback we experienced is that if you have non-military visitors you must go to the Pass/ID office on Oceana NAS and all adults are submitted for a National Agency Check. This can be easy or hard (computers down, heavy workload, etc.) It's hit or miss and they are closed on Saturday. Also, be prepared to be woke up at 0700 to the troops shouting out cadence marching to class past the park. This is an advanced training base and the Marine and Navy troops are very respectful - and young!

A great little campground that is on the beach. There are two sections and the older section is more shaded and has a closer beach access. There is no wifi nor cable, but the power, water, and sewer hookups all work without a hitch. The gate does have a serpentine that you need to navigate. If you call ahead to the NAS Oceana security office, they can have the barricades moved for you. We would definitely come back and camp here again.

Stayed at Dam Neck in Virginia Beach (2-4 Aug 2013) and loved the campground. The staff was very helpful and courteous. This place blew our minds since we love the beach and fishing. The facilities were very clean and new. Definitely will stay again.

We stayed three weeks in the new section of the Sea Mist RV Park. No shade trees to speak of, but more cooling breezes here than the older section gets. Rated amenities/facilities as 3 star only because we did not use them (they did look clean and well-maintained). The walk to the beach can be a bit of a hike, but wasn't a big issue. We really enjoyed our stay and will stay here again when we find ourselves back in the area.

We had to register just to give a review of this campground! We are active duty family campers (two kids - ages 7 and 4) and we really pleased with this campground. We only live about 45 minutes away and thought it would be great for the 4th weekend. There is a easy walk short walk to the beach and when VA Beach was completely overcrowded and no parking, we had our own little oasis! There were not too many people, for a beach, and we were actually able to see the nearby fireworks from the beach by the campground!! It was great to have no beach traffic!! We were in the newer section "Northend", (Northend and Southend are right by each other) and this section does not have any trees, the "Southend" did. We were right by the brand new bath house which was super clean. In the women's there were only 3 shower stalls, one was wheel chair accessible and was missing its shower curtain, which would have been very frustrating if I would have needed to use that one. Also, I don't know about the Southend, but our section did not have any grills at the campsite (we have our own, but they do have a common picnic area with grills) and there are no fire rings. Sites are a little close together, but we thought it was great, we loved being so close to the beach and it fit our needs perfectly. We didn't have cable, but we could pick up the major channels by antenna. I don't consider us people who need to be on a computer all the time, but the major negative was no WiFi. If you are going to be there long term, that could be an issue. Overall, we highly recommend this campground if you are looking to just relax and head to the beach. Close to the Oceana Commissary and Exchange, Mini Mart right nearby. Will be back!

We 'escaped' for the weekend and tried out Dam Neck. I had heard good things from a couple of friends so we tried it out. What a great find! Close to the beach, quiet and everybody was very friendly. One warning...the barriers at the gate are VERY tight, DON'T try going through without first talking to the security folks. They were very helpful and very patient with us, moving certain barriers to allow for our rig to squeeze through. This extra attention is required when leaving with your rig too. Not much is open on the weekends at the annex, mini-mart, exchange, etc. NAS Oceana is down the road about 10 minutes and has everything you may need there. The beach is fantastic, dogs and fishing are allowed. Like the previous post said, both sections are open, the new one has no trees and old one has a bunch. The old section bathhouse is new and spotless. The road through the old section is paved as are all the spots. There are a few 'double' spots where you can park two RVs side by side if so desired. The new section has two pull-through sites. Overall a nice park, we'll be back!

Great campground...you can choose the old one with trees or the new one with no trees. We were on the new one although when we showed up "Mr. Clean" took us for a ride and showed us the entire facility. The only downside is the walk or ride to the beach if you don't have a site close to the two access points. Wonderful to hear the roar of the ocean from you bed. PS the bathrooms were the best I've seen....in a long time.

A new section was completed several years ago with paved roads, level concrete pads, and 50 amp service. The old section was closed and upgraded to the same standards and is scheduled to reopen by October, 2012. Both sections will have a new, modern bathhouse and laundry with a new office and lounge area in the new section. When the upgrades are complete, I believe that Sea Mist will be in the running for the Campers Choice Awards for the Eastern USA. I have been to 2 of the top 5 winners and Sea Mist compares favorably to both of them and if a prime oceanfront location (200 yard walk over the dunes to the water) is important to you, it could be number one. This is not a snowbird destination because it can get pretty cold during the winter but it is a prime location during the summer with a lot of things going on in Virginia Beach. The jet noise is not nearly as bad here as it is at Ocean Pines. No Wi-Fi or CATV but the Verizon air card signal is strong. The new section has no trees to block satellite TV signals. The monthly rate was recently raised to $510.

R.L. left this review using the Directory software: - A beautiful spot! The clubhouse is first rate, did not use laundry or bathrooms. It's so nice to have large level concrete pads, really spoils us for more traditional campgrounds. We could only get 3 days during the week and after visiting some other camps in the area I can see why this one is so popular. It's close to everything, quiet and clean. We're not "tree people" so enjoy the open feeling.

J.B. left this review using the Directory software: I agree with most of the negatives here, but having been stationed at Dam Neck from 2009-early '12, I must comment there is a walk-over to the beach just north of the new campground area, so the prior comments about "environmental" concerns keeping a walkway from being built is not accurate. Additionally, since construction is on hold, merely walking through the old area to use the old beach crossover is probably OK. My two cents...

This is great campground and wonderful place. You will love it here. New facilities and site pads are nice. Could have used a little more parking but a great location and a place we have been coming back to again and again. Great place to run, bike and walk on the beach. NEX nearby along with laundromat (in addition to new machines and dries in new clubhouse at the campground). Monthly rate of $450 hard to beat anywhere. A good choice despite a fairly narrow (for a new campground) road down the middle of the campground, no trees and 300 yds to the beach.

Beautiful setting for those that do not need trees around them. All sites are on a double concrete slab and the camp is very clean. Ray went out of his way to make sure that I would not have to move from my site throughout the entire stay. Sites are not reserved, as long as you have a reservation you can pull in to any available site. Ocean is right over the dunes and you can go to sleep at nite listening to the waves. It is a very quiet area considering is right off a busy street. Great satellite and Verizon reception. Will definitely be going back.

New facility: 28 sites; There now are picnic tables!! "Off season" rates: $22/night. Easy in and out despite having to back in. Utility boxes are not a problem as long as you position your rig carefully. "Old timers" don't like the new facility because of lack of trees, privacy and direct beach access...give it time!! The new office/restrooms/showers and covered picnic/gathering area are a VAST improvement. Only problem is the hot water is from a tankless "demand" system and the new low flow shower heads don't allow enough flow to keep the shower water hot. So the solution is to run hot water from sink while showering. I sure hope the green people like it - HA! Old facility (update): Contractor went bankrupt so modernization is on hold for now. Some trees have been removed as the number of sites is being expanded from 24 to 37. That will give Sea Mist a total of 65 when complete. The old bathhouse is history. New facilities, 50 Amp Power and paving throughout are still the plan. Bottom Line: At $22/night (~$30/night) this close to Virginia Beach, it's a steal!

The campground is super clean and nice. You have a 20X40 concrete slab to park on. Camp hosts were extremely helpful and polite. The beach access is just north of the campsite #1. There is no WiFi or cable-but satellite and local channels work great. With the beach and local things to see and do in VA Beach, we didn't miss WiFi @ all. The boxes are placed a little close to the pads so do park where they won't hit your storage doors. We stayed here in a class A motor home.

The new campground is open and the old one will be closed for a long time due to legal problems with the upgrade. Disappointing that the new campsites have NO tables, grills, or fire rings and no shade. They do not have an office and must rely on Jackie at Ocean Pines (Oceana NAS) to schedule people in and out (supposed to change in August with new computer system). No access to beach from campground. Rick, camp host, and Butch, maintenance, are doing a very good job with limited resources. No WiFi or cable. Beautiful community center with excellent shower facilities. There are too many NO's to make this a good campground at this time. I hope the future brings a lot of changes.
