CHERRYSTONE BAYVIEW CAMPGROUND
The Wilmington News Journal's “Man About Town” reports that at the bottom of the
Delmarva Peninsula there is a vast new recreation area just sitting there wailing for
tourist to find it.
It is the Cherrystone Bayview Campground on the Chesapeake Bay side of the peninsula
at Cheriton, Virginia.
You will find yourself in a pine shaded pond dotted oasis where 200 or more campers
can fine boating, fishing, crabbing, swimming or loafing. It is 4 Star rated but hardly
anyone out side the three state Delmarva area seem to know it is there.
Getting there may not be all fun but after Dover the highway is somewhat uncrowded
and a dual highway, except below Exmore where it is a three lane road.
Cherrystone is 200 miles from Wilmington and is farther south than Richmond, due east of
Petersburg, and 10 miles above the tip of Delmarva.
One won't find many New York, New Jersey nor Pennsylvania cars there but will find those
of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. They leaves 47 other states where the people don't
know what they are missing.
