Campground Reviews

Sep 08, 2014
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.

Had a good time. Too bad I had to cut it short. They were very understanding. I appreciate that.

Great to return after a break!

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!
Aug 25, 2014
Good staff, pleasant surroundings

Staff very friendly and helpful; beautiful wooded site, bathrooms/showers very clean!
Aug 24, 2014
The price for this campground is high for the value. Bathrooms were clean but grounds were more like a poorly maintained state park campground. Nature path was hazardous and had a lot of poison ivy. Swimming pool area was poorly maintained. We chose this campground because it had the KOA name, and this is the second time we've used KOA, and the second time we have been disappointed!

The weather was poor but the service was not. The store had needed items and didn't gouge prices. I even got a refund for 1 night because of the bad weather.
Aug 24, 2014
Showers were small and dark. I would recommend this place only for an overnight stay. Dog park needs a lot more to it. It appears the an oops I forgot to put one in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our off leash dog area was built this year. We have chosen not to put the fake dog furniture/exercise equipment in because we have heard they are just expensive aesthetics for dogs to pee on or mark their territory, and rarely get used.
Aug 22, 2014
Beautiful setting with plenty of trees and spacious spots.
Aug 21, 2014
This is a beautiful park in an attractive setting. It's great how the sites are carved into the landscape (and are level!), without detracting from it. We just stayed overnight in a pull-through on our way to New England and did not have to unhook our towed (yay!). We will definitely be back when we have more time to explore the area

Pleasant very well groomed park. Friendly staff. Park layout maximizes available space while still providing a good degree of privacy. The terraced positioning of sites with hedge like small new growth trees separating was inspired.
Aug 20, 2014
Remote location with no cell service. Lots for Motorhome very narrow. Cable did not work. Weak Wi-Fi. No garbage pick up and no escort to lot. I expect better from a KOA

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you were dissatisfied. If you would like to be escorted to your site, you only need to ask. We do not allow garbage to be left outside due to the crows, squirrels, and other animals that go after it. If you have trouble with the cable or wifi, please let us know in the office so we can help.

Other than the lack of cell phone connectivity, this KOA was great. The staff was friendly and efficient, and the facility was clean and quiet.
Aug 18, 2014
Our site was nice and level, there weren't any noisy neighbors, the store was clean and management was very pleasant.
Aug 18, 2014
Very nice place. Only downside is the lack of cell phone reception.
Aug 18, 2014
Great campground, close to Charlottesville. Very friendly staff. Beautiful, wooded, level sites. I gave 4 stars because there is only 1 bathhouse, with only 3 showers.
