Campground Reviews

Jul 13, 2014
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.

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.

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!!!

This KOA is excellent. Sites are plentiful, easy to use and many have nice shade trees. The staff is very nice and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice campground and staff. This KOA just lacked some of the nice "finishing touches" that others have. Too many dead roaches lying on floor of game room & laundry room. Store not stocked very well. Quiet campground with nice sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, people leave the doors to the game/laundry room propped open (which we do not allow) and all sorts of bugs, critters, and animals get in. We have a small camp store and are only able to stock convenience items due to the limited room available.

Had a great time, made the choice at the last minute wish we had gotten a a bigger cabin but was enough room, camp site awesome. Pool and volleyball net was nice. Wish they would have had a movie on Saturday night other than that was great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Now that all of our RV sites have cable and the cabins have TVs with DVD players in them, no one shows up to movie night so we stopped doing it. The Motion Picture License is also over $800/year so we will not be renewing our license next year.

The whole experience at KOA ~ Charlottesville was incredible ! From initial contact until the time we left. They switched up our site to be near others in our group with one days notice, and it was painless! The grounds were clean and the bathrooms/showers were immaculate. This was my first stay at a KOA, bit thanks to the staff and the experience, it won't be my last! Thanks again!!

We always try to accommodate a request as best we can. It's not always possible...but we do what we can. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, come back soon!

Brand new cabin was great in fact it was beautiful. Public bath and showers some of the cleanest I've ever seen. Wish there were activities for the kids and family (craft, bingo...)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a very small campground so we only hold activities on holiday weekends. There is so much to do in Charlottesville and the surrounding area that no one attends the activities on non holiday weekends.

We loved our site! The size and location were the best! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! We didn't like that it was difficult to ride bikes on the stone road.

Internet was nearly impossible to access.

If you are having trouble accessing the wifi, please come to the office so we can help. No matter what campground you are at!

The campground is very nice. It is a little hard to maneuver with a big Motorhome towing. Beautiful area and we enjoyed it. Staff is excellent. Thank you.

We really enjoy this campground. The owners are on site and very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Our only disappointment was no outside outlet for our fun lights and not having water at our direct site. My only suggestion to the owners would be to step up the cleaning a notch in the restroom and cabins. They just need a bit more attention. Overall great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The restrooms are cleaned daily from noon to 1pm. If you feel they need extra attention please let the office know.

Very friendly hosts. A great location, providing a "State park" kind of feeling. A good place to rest at the campsite area or enjoy the attractions in local area. We really enjoyed our secnic drives to all the wineries in the area.

Hi: We found this a nice campground. The only problem was the dumpster we passed on the way to the bath house was over flowing and smelly. It was hot weather that didn't help. Thanks, Carl.

It is a great campground but the WiFi service is poor which is compounded by the fact there is no Verizon service for Cell Phone service.
Jun 18, 2014
Very clean and friendly staff. Cabin #3 was a good size for our family of four, with two adults and two teenagers. Sunday-monday stay was very quiet. Another time we stayed on a Saturday night and it was a very full campground.
Jun 18, 2014
A very nice clean, quite park. Not close to a major highway so you do not get traffic noise.
Jun 17, 2014
Wonderful grounds! Kabin was clean, perfect. Pool was a HUGE hit with our kids. This was our third time at this KOA and we'll definitely be back!
Jun 17, 2014
Very nice and very friendly helpful staff. I called and told them I would arrive around 8:00 pm but did not arrive until almost 10:00pm they stayed open until we arrived and greeted us and showed us to our site. That wasn't expected but appreciated.
Jun 17, 2014
Very enjoyable; Although full, it was quiet. The camp and all facilities were clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. We look forward to staying here again.
Jun 16, 2014
Very nice facility and great amenities even though I did not have much time to enjoy them. It was nice to have the "in the country" experience unlike a lot of KOA's that are right near the interstate. Campsites were good size and spread apart so you had some privacy.
Jun 16, 2014
The campground was very clean and very quite. We had a back in site that was very private.
Jun 16, 2014
Quite country setting, most sites are great.
