The officers also found soiled diapers, feces and urine-covered bedding.
The camper was in the backyard of a residence where the officers went Tuesday morning to serve a warrant in a different case.
The children were taken to a local hospital and later released to their grandfather.
Police charged 23-year-old Jaronda Rena Wilson of Newport News and 22-year-old Laron Huston Neal of Suffolk with abuse and neglect, reckless disregard and cruelty and injuries to children.
