Campground Reviews

Jul 30, 2015
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the sites are great, I would recommend site 32. The location is close to the caverns.
Jul 30, 2015
Very peaceful kampground with large sites.
Jul 30, 2015
Our site was kind of right in the middle of other ones-all facing different directions. Lots of dust and not much grass. Staff young but very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 45 is right in the very center of the campground and a grassy site (when we are not in the middle of a heat wave). Our excellent staff is full of young (and a couple of not so young) people who all work hard to be sure every stay is an excellent one.

The sites were really spacious. The only issues we had with the campgroud was the mini golf course was in really bad shape. All the other accommodations were fine.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The mini golf has been rebuilt! We hope you return to enjoy more free games!

Very Relaxing
Jul 28, 2015
Tent sites were extremely rocky, asked for shade because of my dog...all I got was a couple of trees no shade. Had to take my dog home. Loud barking dogs all day and night
Jul 28, 2015
Wonderful site, roomy, clean facilities were nice- wish we could have stayed longer!
Jul 28, 2015
Camp sites could be leveler for RVs, but all in all, it was a great experience! Mgmt and staff were exceptional.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ah, site 44 is in the group of sites that have been getting reworked this year. I promise it will be much better next time you come in!
Jul 28, 2015
Quiet but plenty of fun activities for all ages. Desk staff friendly and HELPFUL! KOA's are our favorite and it is easy to see why this one has President's Award!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words! Our staff works hard to ensure each stay is an excellent one and we are very proud of our President's and Founder's awards!

Nice, quiet campground. Good activities for kids. Loved the chickens! Nice camp store!
Jul 27, 2015
We stayed in a Kabin, which was well maintained and shaded. It had a refrigerator, microwave, and TV, which we don't see in other KOA's. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Pool was kept clean, playground was great. Very nice KOA to stay at. Will be back.
Jul 27, 2015
I enjoyed the stay only thing wrong was there was only one bathhouse that's my only complaint otherwise a great campground
Jul 27, 2015

Nice location near Shenandoah National Park with very friendly staff. Very wooded, level sites with good spacing between sites. Laundry could be updated.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We have considered replacing the laundry machines and find they are all in excellent working order, just not beautiful to look at. We found the price of washing a load would need to double in order to update and chose to stay with "ugly and affordable".
Jul 27, 2015
Nice friendly staff bathroom is very clean shower area little outdated nice sinks just wish they had a water truck around to water the gravel driveway every now and then get awful dusty now and then had a great day and yes I would recommend it

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We will take your suggestion into consideration. We do look forward to seeing you again.

Had a great time during our recent stay with grandkids. Campground was the cleanest I have ever seen! Staff was friendly and accommodating! Lots of fun activities for the kids! My only recommendation would be to invest in a bigger screen for movie nights!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We also hope you enjoyed the new 36" screen in your cabin and cable TV. We decided to invest in adding cable TV and flat screen TV's in the cabins rather than a large one for outdoors.
Jul 27, 2015
We found that the campground was too large for only 1 bathroom/shower facility. Waiting for the shower was an undesirable experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I can understand waiting for a shower would be undesirable. We have 3 showers in each bathroom.If your 7 person party went down to the bath house at the same time, I imagine there would be a wait. In the future, you can request a site closer to the bath house to make the wait less inconvenient.
Jul 27, 2015
Would recommend to a family with kids or pets, we just park and run all day (2 adults only).Selected this park because of closeness to Harrisonburg (30min) and WiFi. Absolutely no WiFi while we were there for 4 nights and I feel RVers pay more for WiFi at these parks; if not available, don't advertise that it is. Need more rocks. It rained/was muddy. one night our Honda center caps were stolen!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

No one pays for wifi, we pay a fortune to provide it for free to all of our campers. Rural wifi is a challenge to provide. We are sorry it is not very good. We have not been able to verify your center caps were stolen on our property or perhaps they were stolen elsewhere.
Jul 26, 2015
Not bad.but not great. Site was very unlevel,TV was very snowy,and wifi was so slow it wouldnt connect. Staff wAs pleasant. Ok for overnight but no longer
Jul 26, 2015
Wonderful location. lots of shade and trees. Very friendly staff. When we arrived, they gave a great overview of all the activities and features of the site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for the kind words! We do our best to provide a terrific stay for all!
Jul 26, 2015
Very clean with helpful, and friendly staff. Very secluded and quiet. Liked very much.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words.
Jul 26, 2015
This is not a kid friendly park, at all! Not only do pets have to be on a leash, your kids do too! The owner of the park created quite a scene with a very nice family because her grandchildren were chasing the chickens! She screamed and was extremely rude, scaring the children to death. In her fury, she ordered the nice couple off the premises! I will never return to this KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The children were in a restricted area and throwing rocks at the chickens. The staff asked them several times to not throw stones. We had complaints about the unsupervised children throwing stones close to vehicles. ALL children under 12 must be ALWAYS supervised on our campground.
Jul 25, 2015
Very enjoyable, l really liked the location.
Jul 25, 2015
Lots of amenities great place for pets and children. Staff very friendly and bathrooms were clean and better than expected.
Jul 25, 2015
It's a nice quiet campground. You must drive about 3 miles of narrow country road to get to it, but we'd stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We do enjoy not hearing any highway or train noise! We look forward to seeing you again.
Jul 24, 2015
Enjoyed the friendlyness and all the opportunities the kids had to do activities. The little amenities added up. Nice location. Work on speed of pizza delivery and fire wood. Order firewood that didn't arrive till 3-4 hours later and pizza took over an hour. Understand campers were registering and staff was busy. Plus it was dinner time and orders were coming in. More employees during heavy times.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We will take your suggestions into consideration.

The campground was clean, the people were friendly. Location was great!
Jul 21, 2015
The site we had had no shade at all. And we were the very last site at the top of the hill. The water pressure was so low we couldn't shower. The cable connection was at the nose of our A class when all A class have there connections in the rear by sewer water and electric. They just wanted to sell you a longer cable. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give this Place a 1

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 64 has shade and cable TV. I am really sorry your coax cable did not reach. In the 7 years we have been in business, we have found there is no standard in the RV industry so, we can only do our best when installing utility connections. Our water pressure is between 36-50 psi.
Jul 20, 2015
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The site itself was loaded with activities and options. We enjoyed meeting the chickens and cat which live on property as well. If we are in the area again we will definitely stay here.
Jul 20, 2015
this place was wonderful. the staff was super friendly and helpful. campground is super clean and easy to get around. will definitley go back
Jul 20, 2015
Very nice wooded setting, clean, quiet and relaxing
Jul 20, 2015
We just needed a quiet quick weekend getaway and that was what we got here. Our site was clean, the hookups were convenient for our unit and the size of our site was adequate for a short stay for just the two of us with our 3 dogs. We will certainly choose this KOA again for a getaway. The pool looked clean although we did not choose to use it and the pet areas looked great.

I was disappointed that we could not have a tent on our campsite with our camper. The locked sewer dump area was an unexpected speed bump as well.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The policy is one camping unit per site. The map given to you at checkin states the locked station and need to get a key. The dump station is keptlocked as it is near the playground and children have dropped stones down the station and caused severe damage to the grinder and treatment plant.
Jul 20, 2015
The campground is nice. Bathrooms are excellent. The staff are super friendly. It's the main reason we stay at KOA's across the East Coast. The food selection at the store was way down from years past. We only had two options for diner. Hot dogs or tuna. There were no other meat options available. Our fault i guess for not shopping before we got to the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We do our best to make every stay a good one. We do offer tuna, hot dogs, bacon, eggs, two kinds of smoked sausage, several types of cured sausage, several types of cheese and beans as protein choices. We also have fresh made pizza delivered to site.
Jul 20, 2015
I had an issue with charges I discovered upon returning home, didn't Want to issue credit on my credit card, finally agreed to. Wi-fi didn't work. After checking other KOA websites found many more that allow more than 2 children w/o charging. Pool nice also playground also, clean restrooms

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We did credit your card for the extra child you were charged for. We had no way of knowing you did not bring the extra child since you did not bring this to our attention until after you returned home.At checkin all persons are asked to verify the number of persons on their site.

This was our second visit to this campground. The sites are level and roomy. The bathhouse was clean and there was plenty of room to walk our dog. The internet was really too slow/weak to even check email, but we were only there for one night.
Jul 19, 2015
Maybe have a golf cart for rent for disable,but we enjoyed our stay. Maybe send some discount coupons ,that would help.
Jul 19, 2015
Très bon séjour. Seul point négatif: Wifi, internet très très lent. Excellent stay. Down side, very very slow internet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very sorry about the internet. Rural America internet access is still below par. We do our best with what we have available. We hope to see you again.
Jul 19, 2015
Nice campground. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was very quiet and peaceful. Our site was roomy and the hookups were very good. The only criticism I have is the extremely poor wifi access. We were only able to connect 10-15 minutes each day. Since this was a working vacation for me, the poor wifi was an issue.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Rural wifi is a challenge. One is cautioned to never use public wifi when doing work related tasks. Open wifi is unsecured and can be undependable. We caution people to carry a secure internet connection when travelling and working.

One of my favorite spots to stay in the Shenendoah Valley area. Nice clean campground and friendly atmosphere.
Jul 17, 2015
We always enjoy staying at this KOA. It is clean and the owners are very friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay there fantastic.
Jul 17, 2015
Very hospitable hosts! Lots of activities for the kids.
Jul 17, 2015
4 miles off the highway, but worth the long drive
Jul 17, 2015
Everything was great except the chickens. What's up with the chickens???

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The chickens are here to keep down the tick and fly population. They provide wonderful eggs. They clean the food micro debris that gets left on the ground when we eat outside. And are a terrific form of entertainment.
Jul 16, 2015
This was a great, relaxing trip. Close to several local attractions. Great atmosphere.
