Great place to stay and we will be returning. Campsites were clean and close to the bathrooms. Bathrooms were the cleanest campground bathrooms I've been to.

I stayed at the campground as a rest-stop on a long road trip. WAY better than any hotel.

Very nice tent sites. All were wooded and level. Great camping experience.

Enjoyed the kabin and tent spot side by side. Was disappointed in the pool area. Looked really sketchy. Also, is the pond for fishing? The growth around it would not allow anyone near it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sketchy? The pool was not open and was undergoing maintenance during your stay. We were finishing redoing the pool deck and fence. It is now finished and open for the season.

Dane was wonderful!

Site was clean, we had space number 78 which was right by the pool. Probably the best spot when the pool isn't open, because of the privacy. Great little fishing hole too, just bring a pole, a hook and worms and the Blue Gill basically jump on!

Quiet area..big campsite...cute store Game room was huge disappointment....none of the games works and no pool table so please redo your online photos... Clean bathrooms and shower areas

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our game vendor of 15 years took all of their games when we opened this year. They said they were no longer servicing this area. We just got a new vendor and he is slowly bringing in different games.

Quiet and woodsy.
May 05, 2015
A little bit crowded on the weekends, but nice campground! Clean, pretty. Would stay again.
May 04, 2015
Great place. The amenities were just right for what I needed.
May 04, 2015
Stayed in a tent site , not bad, wish bathrooms were closer . Clean, nice leg stretching hike around the grounds, very close to wineries and scenic drives. Look forward to staying again when the pool is open.
May 04, 2015
Helpful staff, clean ammenities, we had a great time!
May 04, 2015
Great camp trip except person next to us had a dog off leash that growled at us when we would go to our car and was threatening enough that when we walked our dog we had to alter our route to avoid going by their site. There were many dogs but this was the only one off leash and not well behaved.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If you see something like this happen, please say something, either to the owner of the dog or to the staff.

The guy who helped me was very nice and helpful
Apr 27, 2015
we rented a tent site on short notice for a night in Charlottesville. the store had everything we needed in addition to a great campsite. we will be back.
Apr 26, 2015
Great campground! Beautiful land and nice nature trail
Apr 20, 2015
Standard, simple campground - exactly what we were looking for. Camp personnel were very helpful and stuck around even though we arrived past 7 so that we could buy firewood. Clean, etc. The tent site we got up on the hill was perfect.
Apr 20, 2015
Staff was very friendly and campground was kept very clean. Some rowdy folks late at night but not the KOA's fault.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please always let us know if you experience quiet hour issues by calling our after hour security number (listed on your campground map or next to the payphone). Most campgrounds have an after hours number for this exact purpose.
Apr 13, 2015
We stayed 4 nights and used the location to visit crab tree falls for a hike, wineries and the UVA campus. We also relaxed at our camp sight and used the wifi to keep up on our work.
Apr 11, 2015
Did not feel safe, people were parking on the road and sneaking into campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you felt that way we've never seen nor heard from anyone of that happening. We're fairly off the beaten path and there is no where to park on 708 so it would take a rare occurrence for that to happen. We did have a guest in an RV site visiting a neighbor which could have been what you saw.

Not what I expected-in a good way

We have stayed here several times and love it! We are actually coming back this Friday!

Friendly staff, clean campground excellent experience.

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.
Oct 27, 2014
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.
Oct 14, 2014
Nice Campground. The store was good. Late check in went well. Great staff.
Oct 14, 2014
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
Oct 13, 2014
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.
Sep 22, 2014
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!
Sep 08, 2014
Too noisy. Lots of kids screaming and waking everybody up
Sep 08, 2014
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.
Sep 06, 2014
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!
Aug 30, 2014
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.
