Chesapeake Bay -  Gloucester, VA

Chesapeake Bay – Gloucester, VA

The Chesapeake Bay Preserve is a family favorite for enjoying the great outdoors.  Encompassing 280 wooded acres in coastal Virginia, the resort is just upstream from the Bay itself and rests on the banks of the Piankatank River, which offers plenty of water fun including water skiing, swimming, fishing, crabbing, and boating. With its proximity to rich Virginia historic sites, including Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, there is always something for the whole family to enjoy.

What makes the Chesapeake Bay Preserve even better this summer is the upgrades and updates that were recently completed. The preserve’s two pools have been updated with new lighting, new deck areas and new pool furniture. There’s even a tanning ledge in the adult pool!

The sports courts renovations included updated nets and resurfaced courts for basketball and updated pickleball courts complete with new nets and new lighting that allows play to extend into the evening. And don’t miss the remodeled mini-golf course, which is sure to be a family favorite this summer.

Theme weekends offer more fun this summer and include Wet and Wild Weekend, June 27-29, a Fourth of July Kids Carnival, Woodstock Weekend, August 1-3 and a Hawaiian Luau set for August 15-17.

So come visit Chesapeake Bay and enjoy the offerings of this great VA spot for family fun. Visit to make reservations or see more details, as well as other events scheduled for Chesapeake Bay.
