Very helpful staff. We had a technical problem while we were there, and they helped us fix it.

The smell of the campfire in your clothes when you get home. Priceless!

Location is good for Thomas Jefferson home. KOA well market signs. Staff friendly and helpful. Older KOA needs updates. Tree roots, dirt exposed around sites. Muddy issue if it rans. Dead trees need dropped widow makers. Our 50amp went out during night spouse on C-pack woke up had to go out and reconnect to 30amp at 3am. Pool was refreshing sign stated 40 yrs old excuse remodel next seasons.

This was the first time we had camped at a KOA, and I was very impressed. The sites were wooded,and pretty level. The bathrooms were very clean. Our family(2 adults, 2 children under 7) had a blast!

Too noisy. Lots of kids screaming and waking everybody up

Very very friendly and helpful hosts. Beautiful scenery. Sites were well situated. NOTE: use the directions provided on the website, not your GPS. We found the road in very well marked.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The bathrooms were very clean which is a plus in my book and the staff was friendly. I did feel a bit like everyone was cramped. I was so worried my kids would keep other families awake at night because we were so close. My kids were upset that the game room wasn't what they thought it would be. In other koa's, the hockey table would at least be free.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry you felt cramped. You came with a large group of 17 sites (RVs, Tents, and cabins) and asked to be as close together as possible so the only people you would have been disturbing were part of your group. We do not own the game machines, that is why there is a charge.

very difficult to get to off the highway with a big rig

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please use the directions we have posted online, in the KOA directory, or the Good Sam RV Travel Guide to reach our campground. There are multiple ways to reach our campground but only 1 we recommend for big rigs.

Great location! Close to the best visiting sites in the area.

Small, but nice campground. The staff friendly and helpful. No Verizon cell connectivity (not KOA's fault). When approaching from Scottsville on Highway 20, there is no KOA sign which made it easy to miss the turn and have to drive 8 miles to turn around. Dumpster totally full for days, swarming with flies. Campers let their large dogs roam free and were not dealt with by the staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If you drive past 708, going north on 20, there are multiple places to turn around (2 less than a mile from 708). The dumpster was full-ish from Labor day weekend. The morning after you arrived, a neighbor's dog got loose and came to the campground. The owner picked her up at 9:30am after I called.

Great campground... very helpful, pleasent staff.
Sep 05, 2014
The staff was wonderful! We liked that the campground was a bit off the beaten path, but only a few miles to Monticello. No Interstate noise. A wonderful stay
Sep 04, 2014
The campground is beautiful and the staff was more than helpful. I have already recommended it to several campers. We will stop there again.

Good facilities that were clean and well-located.
Sep 03, 2014
Had a good time. Too bad I had to cut it short. They were very understanding. I appreciate that.
Sep 03, 2014
Great to return after a break!
Sep 03, 2014
Sites are very small and girl at front desk was very rude to my father. He wanted to tent camp in the site next to us, that was only big enough for a tent, but it's intentions were to be rented as a camper site so she wouldn't let him camp there...and told him they had no tent sites available. That site and two other "camper" sites stayed empty all 3 days of the holiday weekend. What a bunch of bs

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do not allow tents on RV sites. We do not allow more than six people per site. We also don't appreciate people having unregistered guests & vehicles without notifying the office especially on holiday weekends when we are booked. Sites remain open when people don't show up or cancel last minute.

Very Peaceful. Campground very clean, Owners pleasant and willing to help if needed. Great site.
Sep 02, 2014
It was great really enjoyed the weekend thanks so much
Sep 02, 2014
great campground.
Sep 02, 2014
Visited over Labor Day weekend. Even though the campground was full, it was very quiet. We arrived after dark and the staff assisted us with backing in our rig. This is the second time we have stayed here and we will likely do so again.
Sep 02, 2014
Wonderful location, quiet, clean, and restful. Friendly staff and nice amenities. We will definitely return to this KOA.
Sep 02, 2014
We loved our site--very spacious and by the woods. The activities were a lot of fun, especially the ice cream social and pedal carts.

Awesome place. Enjoyed our time there. Felt very safe for my son riding his bike. Fish pond had some nice bass in it. Pond reminded me of back home ponds where you have to find the good spots. My site was great. Backed in on the first try with the help from the staff. I look forward to coming back very soon.

We're so happy you enjoyed our quaint little campground!

A couple thoughts...better ventilation in the Womens bathroom. It was extrememly stuffy with showers going...you could hardly breathe/difficult to dress because it was hot/sticky. Needs a better air flow. The WiFi is lacking...we couldnt connect (because of all the trees in the tent area, I'm sure). Our site (69) was small. I was told theyre all same size but def not true.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All of our tent sites are different sizes but...the tent pad area of each site is 16x16, which is posted online when you make a reservation. Please plan accordingly.

Pros: Very nice staff, clean campsite Cons: No Cell Coverage (Verizon), WiFi bandwidth very low Overall: nice place to stay, cannot telecommute from here

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, we have no control over cell phone coverage. As far as WiFi goes, the more people using the WiFi, the slower it goes, especially on holiday weekends when the campground is full. Our WiFi is meant for browsing the internet & checking email, not telecommuting on Labor day weekend.

We had a great stay (tent camping - water only site)! The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant, the sites and ammenities were clean and it's in a great location. I'm not sure about the complaints re: the pool from other reviewers. I didn't swim in it, but it looked great. They did say they are renovating the pool in the next year, too. I would highly recommend!

Our stay at the campground was good. The showers/bathrooms were excellent. Because it was a slow day, we got to select a campsite from 6 available ones. Our only issue is that a camper arrived on the grounds some time after the store closed and decided to camp in a spot right next to us. He kept us awake for some time, erecting his tent, inflating his mattress,and talking on his cell phone.

I brought the young son of a friend of mine on his first overnight camping trip away from home. He was very pleased with the campground and wants to return. I liked it, too, and have never stayed at a KOA with cable TV furnished as part of the cabin rental. My only complaint at all is having difficulty connecting with the outside world by cell phone. Otherwise, the trip was very enjoyable.
Aug 29, 2014
Park is well managed. Had problems with the TV cable and they jumped right on it to fix it. Had some fluctuating power problems but worked through it. Park is clean and nice in a remote wooded area. Not a lot of big rig sites.

We came just before labor day weekend and stayed in a cabin. Everything was very clean and not crowded at all.
Aug 28, 2014
Not having cell phone service was a disappointing, but at least the internet was consistent. We had a buddy site with our friends and it was great. We really enjoyed our stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry, but we have no control over cell phone service. It is dependent on where the cell phone companies put their cell phone towers. Sprint and AT&T seem to work consistently at our location.

We had a great 2 night stay at the Charlottesville KOA! The staff was friendly and helpful, the convenience store was great for last minute items we had forgotten, and the bath facilities were clean. It's also not too far of a drive (~30 min) from James River Runners, which was what we planned for the weekend!
