Cabin Reviews

Aug 28, 2014
We came just before labor day weekend and stayed in a cabin. Everything was very clean and not crowded at all.

The campground is small and difficult to drive in. I don't back in, only pull in. Your design made it impossible to pull into my site. It is the only KOA I have ever been to where the pool is removed from the area close to the main building. That is a real safety issue. I always enjoy staying in the Kabins. They are cozy and warm. Good way to stay dry when the weather changes. :o)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The parking spot at your cabin can be pulled into or backed into (whatever your preference). The campground and the pool have been here since 1966. I assume the pool is where it is because of county zoning regulations. Unfortunately we are unable to pick it up and move it closer to the main building

Perfect!

Great place. Do wish the office would open a bit earlier than 9am. But that's a minor complaint. Clean and friendly.

It was awesome! Very clean. Staff was very friendly.

Everything was great, except wireless internet connection. We wanted to look up directions and hours to wineries, restaurants, and other things using ipad, but service was not consistent.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please come to the office if you are having trouble connecting to the wifi. We have winery maps, as well, that list the hours.

Clean accommodations were clean and staff was friendly but campground did not have enough to keep kids entertained. Pool had limited hours and not enough trails or fields for outdoor sports.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our pool hours are from 10am-8pm. Pretty standard for an outdoor pool in the hospitality industry.

stayed in a 1 room cabin. It was perfect. Met my sister who was traveling with their camper form Maine to SC. Wonderful history & beauty in the area. Camper sites are a little snug but I would stay there with our 36' fifthwheel - bathrooms are clean and showers have just enough hangers to hang your stuff on. very clean. Thank You KOA Charlottesville! Angela M.

The camp was clean, well organized and services sufficient. It was a wonderful surprise to get air conditioning during such a hot season. Thanks for the stay, we will come back.

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

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).

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
Jul 15, 2014
Loved it and loved the cozy little cabin... Only thing I could have did without was the cobwebs.

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.

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.

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.
Jul 01, 2014
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.

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 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 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 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!

The one room cabin was perfect for us and our two preschool grandchildren. The site and bathrooms were clean.I liked how the RVs, tents and cabins were mostly in separated areas. I would have rated a 5, but some updating needs to be done: swing set is old and rusted & brace pole is bent, walking path is badly eroded and bathroom screen door needs repair.Thanks to Dane and Ashley, friendly owners.

KOA was not as clean as others. Young lady (brunette) that worked the front office Saturday June 7 and Sunday June 8 was not friendly at all. This KOA will not be my first choice for sure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry if you misunderstood me asking you to move your vehicle as being unfriendly. I didn't think I was asking inappropriately, we just need extra vehicles parked in the designated parking spots.

The staff was very accomodating and the lodging was clean and neat.
Jun 06, 2014
We arrived at 11:00 PM in the pouring rain!!! It was wonderful that the front porch was left on for us!!!

My favorite KOA campground so far. Small, peaceful, quiet. In the country, very wooded with lots of birds. Trail to beaver pond. Didn't see beaver but I did see a muskrat. Pool surprisingly big for campground's size. Kids loved the bikes, and they could safely ride them w/out worrying about traffic. Everything spotlessly clean. Cleanest camping cabin we've ever had. Owners very nice.

Great campground!!! Clean bathrooms. Great staff.

Would have been nice to have a heated pool in the cool weather. Bathrooms did not have toilet paper but it was clean. Sandbox at the playground was dirty. Wood around the playground needs to be replaced. There were little salamanders (?) next to our cabin, lots of them. Cabins were comfortable, mostly clean except for some cobwebs and bugs on the floor. Service was great. Kids activities was fun!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If you notice that there isn't any toilet paper, please let us know in the office and we will restock the bathrooms. Virginia is home to a whole assortment of lizards. When you are camping in nature, you tend to see a lot of different critters big and small!
