Eastern Shore Bound Friday 8/2/13!


Friday, I got off work a little early and raced home to get things ready and meet up with my buddy Will. I was hoping to beat the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel traffic but I knew when we pulled out of the driveway at 3:30 that was not going to happen.  We gassed up at Wawa and it was smooth sailing until we got to the Friday Five Mile Backup at the tube.

 
We arrived at Cherrystone Campground around 5:30pm, checked in, and got the tent set up first thing.  Each site included a picnic table and fire ring which was cool.There was a enough room to park the boat and truck and still had room for the tent, grill, and coolers but if we had 2 vehicles i do not know where the second car would have gone.  After getting camp set up we headed out to explore. The campground was VERY nice but was definitely on the pricey side with it costing us $87.00 for two nights of camping in a tent.  On premise was a General store, CafĂ©, Tackle shop, fishing piers, pools, ponds to fish, everything that you could possibly want, even fish cleaning stations, dishwashing stations, and boat wash down areas.

 
Bath houses were clean and the sunset view was amazing! All and all enjoyed the campsite. It made a nice home base for staying and exploring the eastern shore.
