Campground Reviews

Jul 21, 2014
Very close to Monticello. Small but nice campground. Sites are small but we enjoyed the "buddy site" aspect of it with the other family we were traveling with. Nice having shade trees too.

Go every year to this camp ground and LOVE it

Very helpful and friendly staff. Everything was clean, well-organized and easy to understand!

Great little spot! Thanks for working with us for a late arrival (and early departure). We appreciated that cabin rental rates were reasonable.

KOA Charlottesville was very clean and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The camper lots were nice size and well kept. The only drawbacks that we had were the cable TV did not work - not a big deal since we were in and out so much and the internet was not good, even after connecting to the KOA. (shouldn't be on the internet while camping anyway!!) All in all we had a great stay!!

Though small, the campground was clean, the staff friendly,and the kabin was perfect for our family (including 1 preschooler). Cabin #1 is right by bathrooms and playground, so good for little kids. Pool water was nice and clean, though the pool itself needed some cosmetic repairs. Nature trail was good for young kids but there are ticks in area (one of our kids came home with one).

Those pesky bugs and spiders LOVE the outdoors!

This campground is hilly (as many are in Va) and the pull-thru sites in the back are surprising to get in to. We did like the convenience to Monticello but the entrance to the CG is a bit dangerous being on a curve and drivers do not heed warnings about the upcoming entrance. So it's a little unnerving pulling out onto the main road. Staff was friendly, pool clean, quiet atmosphere.

Very quiet, clean, shady sites and staff was helpful. Used this campground to plan a visit to Monticello.

Lovely little wooded KOA in the middle of Virginia wineries and other historical sites.

We usually stay in state parks, lst time we ever stayed in a KOA, and we really enjoyed it...We usually check out the bathrooms, because their condition, usually states what the campgrounds condition is..It was really clean. We did not have small children with us, but I met a mom in the restrooms, and she wished there were types of steps for children to step on so they can reach their sinks.

Sites are very small. Camper parking during check-in very difficult to navigate. Phone service almost nonexistant and cable is limited. WiFi and pool are good. Entrance/Exit to main highway is hazardous.

This was a very nice peaceful KOA with good shade. We were only there for one night so didn't use the pool etc. Wifi wasn't very strong but that seems standard for KOAs. I'd almost be happier paying for good wifi than getting poor wifi free.

This KOA is very close to a famous places. The staff is polite, freindly, and helpful. I stayed there passing through a few days last fall

Only there one night, garbage to close to site.

There are activities to keep younger people occupied,it was quiet for us older folks, clean, organized,labeled areas, enough amenities,and priced right for the area. The two things I would like to see are a larger sign to the left of your drive to warn drivers of slow campers entering the road, and get rid of the bee's nests around the pool.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There are 2 signs informing drivers of the campground entrance. Also, we would be happy to get rid of any bees' nests if you let us know where they are there while you are staying here.

The campgrounds were clean. Lots of shade. The staff could have been more friendly. Almost no cell phone reception. The pool was all the way across the campground and up the hill.

Loved it and loved the cozy little cabin... Only thing I could have did without was the cobwebs.
Jul 15, 2014
Had a great stay. Loved the tent campsite and we had a great time discovering the the wonderful city of Charlottesville. We will be back again. The only thing that would make a great campground better would be wi-fi access throughout the grounds. Thanks for a great stay.

Good campground
Jul 14, 2014
Enjoyed the camping but 3 bathroom stalls and 3 showers are just not enough on a Friday & Saturday when the park is busy. Maybe another restroom area would be great.
Jul 14, 2014
Great. Close to all that we wanted to see and do. Very clean and quiet.

We only stayed one night as we actually were testing to see how our dog behaved. The employees we interacted with were great. It was nice they had hand packed iced cream so we could have an ice cream cone before going in for the night. Since we were tenting, the campsite was good sized, had water and electricity. And, we had free WI-FI which was nice. Oh, and our dog passed the test!

The new kottage was great, as was the store, and laundry. The renovation of the pool will be very nice upon completion. There is NO fishing. Basically a Swamp area, and the overall grounds could be groomed with better care.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We actually just had someone catch a large bass last month and I have added the picture to our website. Most of the people who catch fish in our pond are on the more experienced side.

Located close to many historic sites and other attractions yet still in the country. Beautiful location!

We had a nice pull thru site. The laundry facilities were clean and functional. The staff was very helpful when providing directions for the area.

Enjoyed our stay, the only complaint was there seemed to be a lot of noise and parting after quiet hours, especially on the Friday night of our stay, don't get me wrong, not opposed to someone having a drink, my wife and I also had a few drinks at our campsite, it just seemed like there was a lot of vulgarity and party like atmosphere. We know you can not control who stays at the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are right...we can't control who stays here, but you can let us know while it's happening, instead of after the fact, so we can address it right away.

Thanks for providing a clean, safe and quiet place for our family to camp while visiting Charlottesville, VA. We had a blast!

During the week we stayed at this koa they had a power outage. As far as they were concern this was not under there control. The only problem with this is it was hard to contact anyone about the matter. The cell service was bad, we were are on the verizon network. You had to go outside of the campgrounds to get any service. The mgmt had a emergency # to call but it does little good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The power went out in the entire area due to an early morning car accident. There is a payphone on the side of the main building between the bathrooms that works even when the power goes out (unless the telephone lines go out). Our emergency number is free from the payphone and so is 911.

Very quiet campground. nice big sites. Beautiful swimming pool. Site says they have a fishing pond, but it is really a swamp pond. Owners were very friendly and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our pond is purposely kept as untouched as possible to encourage the natural habitat to thrive there. It is home to beavers, turtles, frogs, bass, perch, bluegill, deer and the occasional ducks, geese, and cranes.

These where some of the cleanest restrooms and showers I have seen! The tent site was very level. The pea gravel wasn't that great though. It's not easy starting a fire or setting up while kneeling on gravel.

My family and I are from NH and were in town for a wedding. We decided to stay in the KOA cabin instead of a hotel and we are so pleased that we did! The cabin was perfect for us and our kids got to play and swim at the Kampground all day before heading to the wedding. Couldn't have asked for a better trip.

Stay was OK but site was small and right on the road. Staff was very friendly and help full. Kampgrounds is not friendly to class A 41 ft motorhomes. I would go back only if there was no other Camp sites around. Roads leading to the Kampground was very narrow and winding, but this is not the fault of the Kampground.

Please be sure to use the directions to our campground that we have posted on our website. DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS!

This KOA was very accommodating to us! It's a great setting, level, and shaded! Clean facilities! Also, they were very flexible with us when we had some mechanical issues that delayed our checkout! Definitely would stay here again! Highly recommended!!!
