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.)

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.


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.

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.

A couple thoughts...better ventilation in the Womens bathroom. It was extrememly stuffy with showers 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.


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!

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.

only downside is the restrooms were depleted of TP by Sunday morning.

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!

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!

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

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!!


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!

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.


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.

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!

The bathrooms and showers were clean and looked brand new.

Beautiful setting and well kept. Bathrooms spotless. Friendly staff. Weak Wi-fi. We would definitely go back.

It was great. I was a tenter, staying on a little bit of an odd schedule, Saturday & Sunday nights, so Saturday night was full of happy campers, Sunday, deserted of tenters, though there were several RVs in the RV spots. Two toilets not working correctly were the only downside--the one near the door flushing slow, needs snaking, the other, near the showers, flush handle not working right. Thanks!


Thank you for letting us know, we appreciate campers letting us know if things need to be fixed. I checked after you mentioned it at checkout and the high pressure water efficiency flush seemed to be working as usual in all 3 of the men's bathroom toilets. It must have been an isolated incident.

Staff were very helpful and friendly, other than other campers being rude and loud we had a nice stay.


Sorry to hear that. Please let us know if other campers are behaving inappropriately so we can ask them to stop or leave. We even have an after hours security number if it happens after the office is closed.

Best camping ever! Great job!


Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed your stay!

We had an excellent time at the Charlottesville KOA. Even for an offseason stay, the service was wonderful and everything was very cleanly.

Very spacious and clean camp site. Cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen at a campground. I highly recommend this campground!
