During our previous stays things were OK. This stay was spectacular thanks to the young couple that was managing the campground. They are great hosts who deliver a great experience.

Very spacious and clean camp site. Cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen at a campground. I highly recommend this campground!

We always stay in the 1 room cabins at KOAs. Other KOAs allow us to have our pets, but this one did not. Other KOAs have small refrigerators in the cabins, but not this one. Finally, due to injury related mobility issues, we like to move the large bed away from the wall to allow for access at both sides of the bed. This was not possible as the furniture was bolted to the floor.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our 1-room cabins do not have mini-fridges but all of our larger cabins do. The beds were built into the walls by the previous campground owners for safety reasons.

One of our favorite campgrounds. Nice sites. Quiet. Well maintained.
Oct 29, 2013
we were given wasp spray to help with yellow jackets, but we had a lingering campground cat that thought our site was home. clean bathrooms
Oct 29, 2013
Helpful staff, clean bath house, nice campground, sites could be a little bit more level I could not find a spot level enough for the picnic table and fire wood was a bit expensive for what you get. Or I would have Given five star's

Nice accommodations, good service, reasonable cost, and convenient location to high interest sites.

Very clean rest rooms. My camp site was perfectly level and had cable TV.

Stayed in a kabin and had a wonderful stay! My only recommendation was that our first night the temperature went down to 25 degrees. It was a bit chilly in the kabin and I would recommend a heater that blows out heat rather than the radiator style. We brought plenty of sleeping bags and blankets but were still a bit chilly. The "KOA" cat is super sweet and adorable! Great staff! Great showers!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the recommendation, however, the radiator style heater is the safest (other styles are bigger fire hazards).

Nice place

Tight turns Campsites close to each other Difficulty distinguishing roads from campsites.

We had site 16 which was nicely placed at the end of the row with a small stand of trees between it and the next sites. Enjoyed the nature trail and the pond. Very easy to get into town to visit Carter Mountain and Th Jefferson's home.

My family and I enjoy the Charlottlesville KOA very, very much! The showers were very nice and clean! We tell ALL of our friends! The staff was very helpful and thoughtful. The campground is well taken care of!

Quiet, beautiful setting, nice pull-throughs.

The staff is friendly, and the pet walk/ nature walk is quite nice, a good way to de-kink after a drive, although we really like a fenced dog area. The sites are quite close together, and there are free roaming cats that got our dogs going; normally, they don't make a sound when we travel with them. For us, we would probably not stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are putting in a fenced dog area this winter, yay! Also, there is ONE outdoor cat on the campground. If you saw others, they could have been neighbors' cats or other RVers'. It's hard to keep animals from wandering around in nature. There are a lot of squirrels and crows here too.
Oct 25, 2013
The road getting there was fun to say the least. The campground was very nice. Staff was excellent. We will be back.
Oct 25, 2013
Staff was friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean and had an abundance of hot water for showers and utility sink. Was our second time here and will probably return in the future.
Oct 23, 2013
It was a okay no problems only there one night
Oct 22, 2013
small, well appointed campground with great staff. My only complaint is that there is an extra charge for children which I find ridiculous.
Oct 22, 2013
Everything was awesome! The owners are super friendly and very informed. The cabin was clean and nice. The grounds are enjoyable.

thank you for the weekend and putting me in line with the rest of my family. really liked my spot.
Oct 21, 2013
Site was not level and not much space. There are people that live there in their rv and it smelled like dog poop all around. There were at least 10 cats and several dogs at one site. It was a bit uncomfortable. Transiting people should be separate from permanent. Not as nice as other koa. Stayed down the road much cheaper for same type of place.
Oct 21, 2013
We had a great time visiting and plan to visit again soon.
Oct 21, 2013
Awesome Koa- best I've stayed at yet! Great owners, wonderful facilities, beautiful area. There was one group of drunk college students who ruined the night w loud music and profanity until 1am despite attempts to quiet them down but otherwise this Koa will definitely get my business again!
Oct 21, 2013
campground was perfect for what we came to Charlottsville to do. really just needs a heaping of TLC. Entrance loop a bit strange, dump station on main road coming in, blocks other exiting large rigs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The main entrance road is 2 lanes wide, RVs have plenty of room to pass while other RVs are dumping.

Did not feel safe with a couple of obvious long term campers who did not keep campsite's clean. Campstore/check in smelled of cat litter and outdated. Host were friendly enough but seemed overwhelmed by operational mgmt.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Careful with assumptions. The next site was there for a week with a bag of firewood, not a bag of trash. A cat outside doesn't mean there was ever a cat or litter inside the office. Being unable to change your site means we're booked and others made reservations first, not that we're overwhelmed.

We LOVE staying at KOA Charlottesville! Dane and Ashley always remember my family AND our preferences in camping accommodations. We will definitely be back!!
Oct 16, 2013
Clean and quiet sites. Facilities well kept. Owners are wonderful. Will keep coming back and would recommend it to anyone.

We had a nice stay in a 2 bedroom, no bathroom kabin. The only suggestion I would make is that it would be a better setup to have the full size bed in the back of the cabin and bunks in the front, because in the middle of the night when people went to the bathroom they had to walk through the front room and the room with the double bed should be the private one not the one with bunks.

There was on camper in motorhome who looked to be semi-permanent. Site was in our view, trashed, stunk, 2 dogs which barked alot.
Oct 14, 2013
The larger cabin with the full bath was excellent for our family weekend camping trip. Besides the weather which was a drizzle rain most solid the weekend was the only negative part. But it was a really fun time sitting around the camp fire. We didn't let the eau stop us from cooking and being outdoors. A fun time! Thank you, we love renting the larger cabins with the full bath.
