Helpful staff, clean campgrounds, quiet and pleasant environment all together

I always stay at this KOA when visiting the area. Like it very much.

Although it was a long trip into the woods we found the campground clean and inviting. We only stayed over one night but are looking forward to going back and spening some time.

Very tight turns and the site we were assigned to was not level. I had to move the motorhome to a level spot before I was able to hook it up. Is the circle in front of the office really necessary?

Two adults & two boys 8 & 10. Two very hot days. Window AC was inadequate even with the ceiling fan on high. Pool was just adequate but walls need a good cleaning. The scum on the walls ha served as a writing board. Unlike most campgrounds, this KOA had no outside water faucets at each cabin...a certain negative.

Very clean, staff were ready to go home when we checked in. For some reason, felt unsafe. Can't put my finger on it, just felt like security was non-existent. Nice large spaces. Great pool & dog walk. Thanks!

Great location, friendly staff, an all-around wonderful stay. The bathrooms were very clean as was the entire campground. It was fairly small, but we enjoyed that because amenities were not crowded. We'll definitely return next time we are in Charlottesville.

Our daughter attends UVA. We love this camp for the nice sites and its proximity to Charlottesville.

The worst experience ever at a KOA. Sent me out with two lots to look at by myself. The first was too short and the second was way too narrow. I would understand this better if the website did not brag about how they have changed the layout to accommodate newer campers. The lady in the office was combative regarding having my cell number which no other campground has ever "needed."

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We ask for a cell number in case we need to reach you while you are out or just after you leave. We have had campers leave with compartment doors open or antennas up. Once someone dropped their wallet getting into their truck when he left so we called his cell. It's for your benefit not ours.

Good Morning, The outlet we plugged our camper into didn't work so we had no AC all weekend. We stayed 3 miserable nights and I wanted to get a hotel. We had to go buy several fans and new pj's. When we got home yesterday & plugged our camper up for electrical, the AC worked. We called yesterday & the lady said the manager will call him back so far my husband hasn't heard from anybody.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If you have electrical issues please let us know right away. The owner is an electrician and can fix the issue in minutes. I have spoken with your husband and let him know that owners and managers are always there to help at any campground, you just have to ask.

Nice location close to Monticello (15min drive) which was the main reason for us staying here on out what from Blue Ridge Pway to the VA coast. Nice pool for a cooling off.
Aug 15, 2016
Nice

Staff was great. Site and facilities were very clean. Great place to camp.
Aug 15, 2016
Great and friendly staff. Clean facilities and campground well maintained
Aug 15, 2016
Advertises "Big rig friendly". Well, just barely. Exterior and interior roads too narrow for a 43' motorhome. Sites are not level, and night time security lighting is ZERO! It gets dark in the deep woods! Wifi and cell are nonexistant. Poor value for typical high KOA price.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have 40' fifth wheels and 45' Motor homes towing come here all the time. For some drivers it's no sweat for other drivers it is a big deal. Driving a large rig is not for everyone. The only lights we have at night are on the buildings. That way there aren't bright lights shining in RVs at night.

Other than the rainy night we had a great time. Very close to interstate 64. Clean, quiet. Friendly staff!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are 9 miles from I-64
Aug 13, 2016
Enjoyed very much.The drive way needs to be widener. Little hard to get into. Everyone was very nice.
Aug 12, 2016
Well wooded, the natural aspects were wonderful, but the bathrooms, while clean, held odors that persistently lingered and made them seem not clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If this is the case, please let us know. We have bathroom sprays for odors.

Very noisy, even late in the evening. Seemed to be quite the party spot.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This was addressed and the music was off by 11:15 pm. The following night I didn't see anyone from any of those sites outside after 10 pm.
Aug 11, 2016
A beautiful setting! We loved it!
Aug 11, 2016

Could do better !! No ventilation in the men's room. RV site not that clean. Cable tv reception was terrible .
Aug 10, 2016
We had a one night stay in our motorhome. We appreciated the option of being able to select our spot from several sites. Service at check in was good. We did not have a chance to utilize any of the amenities but it was a good stay and we would definitely return if in the area again.
Aug 10, 2016
Love the rustic setup will full country quiet. Folks who complain about road noise and railroads need to stop here.
Aug 09, 2016
Pulled in just before closing, got a pull-thru spot. Folks in the office were very nice and accommodating. Only complaint is that the trees & bushes need a big trimming out. We have a big rig and it was worrisome to try & navigate the roads with branches sticking out.

very clean, nice amenties, we had a very pleasant stay.

The pool was filthy!! It is summertime and we had kids that could NOT swim like they had hoped.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our pool is chemically treated every day and vacuumed multiple times a week. While you were here we had horrific storms each day. Are you referring to leaves and branches blowing into the pool after heavy storms or bugs that like to congregate near water?

We have stayed at this KOA for years. We love the small, quiet KOA. Very clean and always supper friendly. Dean and his family do a wonderful job.
Aug 06, 2016
Clean, well managed, very quiet and close to downtown. CAUTION - 2 left hand turns required when leaving on dangerous blind curves.
Aug 06, 2016
Would certainly not be my 1st or possibly even 2nd choice if Charlottesville had other options closer to local attractions, Bathrooms were clean and well taken care of, pool was quite usable but sites, although maintained, left much to desire. We were in trees and area behind RV never dried so supported mega ant population which totally invaded unit. First time ever in 5 years of RVing.
Aug 06, 2016
This was our first stay at a KOA.First,Sandy in the office was very friendly.The campground was clean and the pool area well maintained. However,our pull thru site #19 was very disappointing! We were NOT looking for a stop over for the night.we wanted to unpack and enjoy the cool mountain air.Instead we were stuck with no grass and a rocky base. Very disappointed not at all what was expected.
Aug 06, 2016
Sites weren't level and water and electric hookups were covered in weeds. Too far back in woods and I didn't feel comfortable. Roads were tight to navigate a 40' RV w/tow.
Aug 06, 2016
Overall pleasant enough. Staff was friendly. Think a little more care could be give to the grounds. Weeding trimming cutting back weed trees and such. Kinda like when you check out of a hotel. Go check the site. Clean the fire pit and grill. Rake up leaves. Pick up trash and debris. Few tweaks and you'll be getting 10 stars every time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We cut grass and weed as much as possible however, the rain doesn't always cooperate with us.
Aug 05, 2016
Very pleasant and clean campground. Helpful sweet staff. I'll use this again anytime I'm stopping in this area.
Aug 05, 2016
Restrooms were clean and attractive. Site was comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful-led me to my site.
Aug 04, 2016
Easy, clean, functional and pretty quiet. Would come again.
Aug 03, 2016
Campground is just ok. However, cell phone service & internet is so poor I cannot recommend. Does not meet KOA standards.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have no control over cell phone service. However, I had been on the phone with our internet provider for the past month because we had been running at 1/3 of our speed. Apparently, mice had eaten through the line in a farm 2 miles from the campground. They assured me the issue has been remedied.

Love this camp ground.

Nice friendly staff and quite place to stay. Bathrooms need to be cleaner though.

This KOA is nothing like a standard KOA. This is a hole in the woods. It is 8 miles of the interstate down a winding road. The entrance is on a blind curve. The lots are sqeezed together it has stagnant water around the sites. Our site was not even close to being level. The pool area is to far the the camping area. Left as soon as we could, so we can not say anything about the staff. Stay away!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a bad experience. You arrived after dark during a rain storm and set up in the dark. You might not have backed into the site properly. It's always harder to back in and set up in the dark. We had 3 days of powerful thunderstorms so the ground may have been saturated in certain areas.
Jul 30, 2016
Well, it's a good location . You are near vineyards and town things to do. Staff was friendly . The only problem we had was that our 30amp power went out in the middle of the night. Thank God I'm the morning we found our 50amp converter! It was our saving grace! Cable connections were fuzzy too. But other than that, it's an okay campground. We stayed 3 nights in our 5th wheel .
Jul 30, 2016
Very nice and friendly staff. Very close Monticello!
Jul 30, 2016
your park was the furthest from the highway on a very winding and narrow road
Jul 30, 2016
Came in right as the office was closing. They stayed open and got me and two other families in
