Tent Reviews

Friendly staff, clean campground excellent experience.
Oct 27, 2014
Last two years there have been problems with noise/rowdiness after hours. Last year was worse, and the offending party was eventually dealt with. This year there was music until about 11pm from one site. Not too bad, but not in compliance with the quiet hours. I think staff should make a late trip through the tent sites to remind campers of the 10pm quiet time and what is/is not allowed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Rounds were made at 10, 11, and 12 on the night of your stay. Unfortunately not all campers are respectful of our rules and aren't aware of others around them. They stopped at 11 because I told them to shut the music off and reminded them it was past quiet hours. They weren't as loud earlier at 10.

The staff was friendly and our reservation was ready when we arrived. Overall, the campground was well maintained, but the restroom looked as if it had not been cleaned for days and only one stall out of three had sufficient toilet paper.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The bathrooms are cleaned daily as posted.

Nice Campground. The store was good. Late check in went well. Great staff.

Great campground (or is that Kampground!). Friendly staff. Definitely going back!
Oct 13, 2014
Sites are small and there wasn't as much to do as other KOAs. Bathrooms were clean and showers were spacey

Everything was good for us at the campground with the exception of the men's bathroom which had a broken urinal the entire two days and, due to the flushing mechanism, often left waste in the toilets w/o several flushings. So much for water saving toilets.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The urinal is going to be removed when we close for the season, that is why it is covered up.

The host was very accommodating.I had a little snag in my plans, an they were very understanding. I enjoyed my stay very much, and would definitely stay here again.

This is our second trip to this KOA, and we really enjoyed round two. There will definitely be additional stays in our future.

Clean and well-maintained campground. Definitely not for primitive camping, but great for families and people who enjoy having all the amenities of home (showers, store, water pumps, etc.)

clean, well maintained campground, great pool!

Too noisy. Lots of kids screaming and waking everybody up

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.

Great location! Close to the best visiting sites in the area.
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.
Sep 02, 2014
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.

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.

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 24, 2014
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 18, 2014
only downside is the restrooms were depleted of TP by Sunday morning.
Aug 11, 2014
Overall this KOA was very nice, bathrooms were clean and campground was well maintaned. Pool was great, old, but just like everything was well cared for. We were in a tent site. Only thing that could have made the cooking a bite more easier would have need a stand up charcoal grill at the site. It did have a grate that you cod use over the firepit but this got really annoying after a few times.

Great accommodations. Very nice site. Very much liked that I had a choice of site once I arrived. Very quiet and private. Clean bathrooms. Nice grounds.

Staff was very friendly. Bathrooms and showers were beautiful. I would go back to this campsite. Just for a weekend. The town of Charlottesville, not so much.

Go every year to this camp ground and LOVE it

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

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!
Jul 07, 2014
Thanks for providing a clean, safe and quiet place for our family to camp while visiting Charlottesville, VA. We had a blast!
Jul 04, 2014
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.

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!!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Clean area. But the quiet hours were not enforced and it was difficult to sleep with the late-night noise from other campers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry it was loud after quiet hours. We do a quiet hours check between 10pm and 11pm. If it is loud after that, we don't know unless someone calls the after hours security phone number.

Great place to stay. I stayed in the tent sites and there was plenty of room for the tent and a pretty location.
May 21, 2014
All was fine except for picnic table, tent site #69. You must repair it: The central plank on the top and one seat board are completely oozing sap, making all equipment & clothes sticky. The boards probably came from the same cut. May be able to repair easily by unbolting the boards, turning, reattaching, & fresh paint--don't know, perhaps they are not bad on the flip sides. Thanks!
May 20, 2014
The bathrooms and showers were clean and looked brand new.
